It might have been ten years since the headband wearing Queen B has graced the screen, but there's a simple way to channel your inner Blaire. As PopSugar found, designer Jennifer Bahr is rereleasing the exact Gossip Girl headband that Leighton Meester wore in the show. The over-the-top bedazzled accessory is the perfect way to relive your glory days — or at least the character's.
Every show has their "thing." For Stranger Things, it's Eggo Waffles. For Thirteen Reasons Why, it's blue nail polish. For Gossip Girl, it's Blaire Waldorf's headbands. The accessory doesn't just make the character — it's a signature of the entire show. Thanks to designer Jennifer Behr, you can now bring a little B into your own wardrobe.
The handmade Swarovski crystal headband worn by B in the show is a bit over-the-top, but it's definitely stunning. You can snag the headband for a limited time on the Jennifer Behr website for a cool $325. The accessory might be pricey, but it's a small price to pay for being able to recreate your favorite Gossip Girl fashion moments.
"Spotted...As seen on the inimitable Blair Waldorf on Gossip Girl, we’ve reissued this all-time-favorite that everyone has been asking for! Get it while you can – and follow us on Instagram to see how B wore it! @jenniferbehrxoxo, JB," it says on the website.
Unlike some of the character's more traditional headbands, the Double Crystal Scallop Headband has an elastic band on the back for a comfortable fit. The headband was originally launched ten years ago when Blair wore it on-screen. This is the first time that it's been available since then.
Like all good things, this accessory will not be around forever. The headband is limited edition, so you don't have a lot of time to save up for the design. It's currently only available for pre-order, with shipping taking ten days.
The headband isn't the most iconic of the entire show, but it's definitely one of the most extravagant. Blaire Waldorf's most iconic design was her finale headband. Both were just a shimmery though. There's no better way to embrace B's style than with this accessory.
If you're looking for a way to update the trend, you could definitely get away with wearing this as a choker as well. I like to think that the trend would be a go-to for the on-screen character in the 2010s. Or maybe she'd stick with her signature look. Seeing as it's not the most affordable accessory, it's good to have options.
If you're not into headbands, there are plenty of other shimmery accessories to snag on the Jennifer Behr website. There's everything from bedazzled hair clips and pins to embellished knit hats. The brand is already Waldorf-approved, so you can't go wrong with snagging a few extra accessories.While all of the accessories are high-end, the other hair accessories range from $72 to $275.
The brand did not give an exact end date to the accessory sale. Bustle reached out to the brand to find out.
If nothing else, it's fun to see that this style is still being celebrated by fans and designers alike. Fashion styles might come and go, but great TV characters are forever — and this accessory proves it.
