Thinking back on Gossip Girl, I came to a realization that a little part of all of us wants to be Blair Waldorf. Looking back, she is one of the most memorable characters who, despite all of the drama, came on top! Blair has a strong personality, wisdom beyond her years and looks to kill for, so why wouldn’t we want to fill in her shoes? She is Blair Waldorf after all.
For such a young lady, Blair Waldorf was amazing at organizing events for some of the most important people. She never let the pressure get to her and got things done when needed. In comparison to everyone else, her organizational skills were something to be envious about. It must feel good to have everything figured out!
Blair went through a big style transition, but remember her high school days? She was the epitome of preppy with headbands on headbands! Even the school uniform looked extra fashionable on her, while everyone else fell to the background. She always knew how to present herself!
Let’s admit it, most of Blair Waldorf’s power came from her minions. They followed her around and did everything she told them to. Together they made a trio nobody wanted to mess with. Of course they later rebelled and became their own people, but it was fun while it lasted!
When it came to fixing problems, Blair always managed to figure it out. She had the money, the status and the connections to get everything how she wanted it. Even back in high school, she was the Queen Bee, ruling the school like she was born to do it. I wonder what it would feel like to be her for a day.
Blair’s persona was pretty intimidating to those around her. She had a strong character and she wasn’t afraid to bite back. Even her best friend Serena knew that she was not one to be messed with. She of course used her reputation to her advantage whenever she needed to. Who knew such a small girl could create so much tension?
When it came to dresses, jobs or even boys, Blair always managed to get what she wanted. She was ambitious and determined! Although she didn’t always do things for the right reasons, she did what she though was best for her. Her mindset always revolved around the concept of ‘survival of the fittest.’
Blair Waldorf is often described as a ‘mean girl,’ but despite her strong personality, she was a good human being. Deep down she was just an average fragile girl, who was as lost and confused as everyone else. However, she never let that show and instead used sarcasm and sass to stand her ground, but let’s admit she would be a boring character if it weren’t for that.
Love her or hate her, Blair had striking characteristics that we, at some point, have all wanted. Up until the end of the show, we got the chance to see her grow from an upper east side teenager into a graceful lady. Which characteristic would you want to borrow from the one and only Blair Waldorf?
