Jenny's 180

Like many of you fellow fashion followers, I have been a huge fan of Gossip Girl's styling ever since the show started. I have to say that I was never a big fan of Jenny Humphrey's character but last week's episode made me change my mind. We were introduced to a totally new Jenny who is rough, tough and dangerous. Well, whatever they have done to her, it works! Although her look is very different from anyone else in the show and goes out of the preppy style mold, I have to admit that the show just got a wee bit more interesting for me. Ok, perhaps Nate's and Jenny's blooming relationship might have something to do with it too...

Pictures from here and here.

What's your view of Jenny's new look? Love it or hate it?

love it, somehow the rebel-rock-biker bad girl look looks great on her. She had never looked better.

Hahah, mulla on valmisteilla postaus samasta aiheesta ja etenkin noista HIUKSISTA ;)

Jink: Joo sorry.. Oletin, että kaikki täällä jo latailee jaksot netistä. :D

Clareassiral: I agree! Her character is still a bit annoying but her new look saves her and makes her my new favorite! :)

Honey Junkie: Great minds think alike! ;) Joo, tuo tukka on erityisen onnistunut, mutta eipä nuo Wangin kuteetkaan ole pahitteeksi. :)

I hated it.
The dress she had to remake for Eleanor (with the pink tulle) was absolutely horrific. (It looked precisely like the dress from H&M Divided's party collection.)
And I really didn't get the Joan Jett-hair either.

Elizabeth from White Lightning actually summed up my feelings about the episode pretty nicely:

Ranna: Haha, I knew you would! :D The dress with the pink tulle was gross but I like what she is wearing in the pictures I provided. I guess I can relate her style more now (since its closer to mine), so therefore I am pro-Jenny. :D And for the same reason I am sure you are pro old Jenny. :)

I'm actually not pro-old Jenny either. :)
I thought her old style was really tacky and overdone as well. She never looks effortless, not even in this new biker-chic look.

(..This might have something to do with the fact that I have always hated her character.:)

Oh, and on the sidenote - in my opinion even Blair doesn't hit homeruns all the time (unlike Chuck):

Seriously, yuck.

Ranna: I dislike her character as well, I think she is an annoying little brat. When she wore her old clothes, I always thought it's a "poor girl in rich girl's clothes" and like you said, it wasn't effortless. I like her new styling more because it's more closer to the "scene" street style which would be more realistic since Jenny is from Brooklyn (hipster town). I could wear her clothes, so I relate. Not to her character though. And I think the photographer and the Agnes thing sort of gave me the Cobrasnake/Cory chills..yuck!

oh yes she's definitely one annoying character in the show and im all on board with the horrible tulle dress. but yeah her new image does resemble yours a little.

oh, the project runway guy you mentioned? jerell! That was spot on, he does look like him.

Ranna: I agree, that oufit on Blair is horrendous..She looks like a granny! And not in a good way. Chuck is just ahh.. ;)

Clareassiral: Yeah Jerell! He had a great style, too bad his final collection wasn't as great.

Jennie: Omg! That's so strange that you found me from the blog world! :) Of course I remember you! Seriously, good times with the Sounds and Interpol..I miss it all so much. How are you?? Peter and I are planning on moving back to L.A. next year, that is if he graduates in time..I'm still on myspace too but not so active anymore. I guess Facebook has taken over Finland..Good to hear from you girl!!!! *hugs*

Ocean: Me too!

Oola: Yeah, me too! I got a sewing machine for my b-day, I should start making more clothes by myself.

Miss Urbanita: Moi aussi!:)

I sort of love it and sort of hate it. I really can't decide. Well, the new look is great - but I don't think it fits Jenny's character.

Minäkin meinasin kerran kommentoida blogiimme Jennyn, tai itse asiassa Taylorin, uutta tukkaa. :D

Kuvassa oli nimittäin Taylor Momsen räikeässä kirkkaanpunaisessa mekossa ja uudessa hiustyylissään menossa jonnekin gaalaan, ja minusta koko look oli karsea _15_-vuotiaalle! Asu, hiukset ja meikki olisivat sopineet parikymppiselle, mutta niin nuorella asukokonaisuus näytti jotenkin... pornahtavalta.

Hmm, ja taisin tykätä vanhasta Jennystä enemmän, mutta ihan kiva että sarjan hahmot uudistuvat tavalla tai toisella.

Mä tykkäsin kovasti kun katoin sen jakson missä tuo Jennyn look oli muuttunu, koska oli jotenkin ihanaa että edes yksi sarjan hahmoista erottuu joukosta pukeutumisen perusteella. ;)

Ah, I thought exactly the same! I have always liked Jenny in some twisted way, and her old style too, but last episode's outfits were just great, I even liked the dress!

I love the change, I have a soft spot for Jenny and there's so much more in her character now. I hated her collection though, it was so Hot topic or whatever. I also don't know how I feel about the fact that the writers are clearly taking ideas from the whole cobrasnake/party photo etc. scene. But I guess it's natural to be influenced from the current trends.

And I have to say, I died from the inside when that episode of Blair & her terrible outfit aired. There's no words for that :)

Heey, I guess you had a good time in Sweden :)
But I must say I agree with Ranna about Jenny. I dislike her character and that's probably why I dislike her clothes too. And the fact that Taylor Momsen seems to be so f'd up irl disturbs me. A sudden, could-have-been fatal throat infection, super quick recovery, anyone? Isn't she 15 or something?

Sara: Yeah I like the clothes but not the character so much. I could steal her wardrobe and make it work. :D

Ann: Uudistusta todella kaivataan, ettei sarja jämähdä paikoilleen. Tuo näyttelijä on kyllä tosi nuori, ehkä vähän liian nuori noille vaatteille.

Harmonica: Joo totta, muut on aika samanoloisia (paitsi ehkä Serena).

Paula/dpt: I sort of hate her love her.. Some stuff she does is just so argh..but I like the twist with Nate and the new clothes. They had it coming though..

Suna: Hot Topic describes it very well haha. I guess her own line is more teen than at Eleanore's. Her new style works for me though, I want her clothes! Cobrasnake should be left ouf ot GG though, it was enough to give Cory/CS a break at the horrid 90201 show. Yuck!

Laural: What infection? Mono? I didn't know.. hmm better go google it now. :D

Well, I've heard about the two B's that give you chipmunk cheeks, which she totally has btw; blow or bulimia..

Laural: I would think it's the second since she is stick skinny. And puking irritates your throat as well. I got big cheeks but I don't do either one. :D
