I recently finished the Gossip Girl series on Netflix, and like any Netflix junkie who cannot cope with the stress of finding a new show to watch, I simply went back to season one and started again.
Not to worry. There will be NO spoilers given.
I, like any faithful brunette who feels for those who are constantly over-shadowed by the bombshell blonde, have a soft spot in my heart for Blair Waldorf, and rightly so. She is an incredible, fictional, girl-who-I-please-want-as-a-best-friend, real to me!, human being. And I love her for many reasons.
Blair Gets Stuff DONE.
No matter what the circumstance, if Blair wants something, she doesn’t let anything get in her way. She has connections. She has tact. She is driven by this unceasing force of energy, gossip, and Prada bags that keeps her moving, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
She Marches To Her Own Drum.
Blair makes her own opinions about people, fashion, and society. She doesn’t go by what others say, and she doesn’t let anyone sway her. She investigates and makes her own assessment.
Once You Win Her Over, She’ll Be One Of The Best Friends You Can Ask For.
Blair can be rough around the edges, but that weeds out those who won’t push her to grow. When she’s your friend, she’s the most committed and kind, and easy to please with the smallest thoughtful acts. You can’t help but love her for this.
The Way She Represents Brunettes Everywhere!
Blair struggles under the shadow of her gorgeous blonde friend, Serena, but this doesn’t dull my happiness that a brunette is the face of beauty for once!
Blair Is A Hard Worker.
She’ll smile and clip clop her way around in dainty designer heels, but when it comes to working hard, she’s the top at her game.
Blair Has Class.
She won’t reduce herself to bad language or parking lot brawls. She settles disputes over morning brunch—and with a polished smile. Her idol is Audrey Hepburn, do we expect any less?
Some of Blair’s outfit choices can be a bit extravagant for, say, a Friday morning, but there is no denying. Blair Waldorf has the best wardrobe known to fictional characters—and always the bag and shoes to match.
Really, the reason we all love Blair Waldorf is because we all want to BE Blair Waldorf, and why wouldn’t we?
I didn’t even mention Chuck Bass yet.
