This got me thinking more about modern power couples who might fit into the exceptionally fashionable category, and I was reminded of one of the great fictional duos, featured on a silly but insanely stylish show whose third season I've recently been catching up on: Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass, of the Upper East Side, and Gossip Girl Fame.
B: "3 words, 8 letters. Say it and I'm yours."
Yes, these characters may be fictional, but for supposed 18/19 year-olds they are seriously crazysexycool, plus Blair got THE Chuck Bass to say "I Love You" So, super-stylish power couple, pretty exciting stuff, and the clothes! ohh, the clothes, and the bags, and the shoes... and the headbands.
B: "I know you. You're Chuck Bass"
CB: "I'm not Chuck Bass without you"
CB: "Blair. We both know you'll never be completely trustworthy. And I admit it's not my strong suit either. But it's part of what keeps things interesting between us."B:"And why we make a great team" ...
CB: "No, in order to be a team, we need to focus our duplicity on others."B:"But what if it's my way of showing I love you?"CB: "Well I can think of better ways."
CB: "I'm Chuck Bass. And I told you I love you. You're saying I'm easier to win over than a bunch of pseudo-intellectual homesick malcontents. You'd really insult me like this?"
B: "That's not how it is" ...
CB: "That's exactly how it is. So the next time you forget you're Blair Waldorf, remember I'm Chuck Bass. And I love you."
So, whether at Cotillion or Chucks Penthouse; buying Hotels or opening Clubs; mastering Deception or plotting Revenge/Sabotage, these two Lovebirds/Evil Masterminds are entirely powerful, and entirely perfect for each other, and Leighton Meester is entirely a babe (but fairly ridiculous when singing dance music, and video-ing with Robin Thicke. So now I have to share something entirely not GG or Power Couple related. Check out the video below, I promise you will not regret it).
..."it's hard to find a mate when you're gone before he wakes"
During my last visit to NYC this past November, a certain very sophisticated NY-transplant bff of mine admitted that she had delegated Leighton her token girl-crush. Then we stumbled upon this, and watched it incessantly... And now I am going to be really disappointed if everyone reading this is not as amused as I am.
"Je t'adore, Je t'adore... You say Hello, I say Goodbye, Je t'adore."
We make our own fortunes, and call them fate. And what better excuse to choose a path than to insist it's our destiny?
"You Know You Love Me" xoxo, Gossip Girl
