Blair Cornelia Bass (née Waldorf) is a main character in the Gossip Girl series of novels and its television adaption, in which she is portrayed by Leighton Meester.

Blair is regarded as the "Queen B" of the Upper East Side. She is also the wife of Chuck Bass and the best friend of Serena.

Appearance and StyleEdit

Blair is considered the most glamorous and beautiful person on the Upper East Side. She is the daughter of a successful fashion designer, Eleanor Waldorf, which contributes to her notable fashion sense. In the novel series, she is described as a striking brunette, and never loses her position as Queen Bee. Amidst Season 2 of the TV series, she was voted the most beautiful female lead by readers of[1] Additionally, her wardrobe continually garnered real-life acclaim during the early seasons.Though naturally beautiful, and much-admired, Blair, being an overachiever, enjoys making an effort to catch eyes, often wearing classic, Audrey Hepburn-inspired designer clothes. At times, she also feels challenged by her friend Serena, the similarly admired former Queen Bee. This sometimes creates a comical paranoia in Blair, leading to questions of perception versus reality. However, it is ultimately Blair who remains Queen Bee of the social scene, both during Serena's absence and after her return, in each version of Gossip Girl. How to Dress like Blair.


"There's only one queen bitch in this town and that's me"

-Blair Waldorf

"That girl is fiercely strong. Independent. Outspoken. Beautiful. Capable of anything...and no man or magazine should be able to take that away from her."

-Dan Humphrey

Despite leading a privileged and prominent lifestyle, Blair is generally characterized as a comical overachiever. At times, Blair's ambition can lead her to embrace a haughty and scheming side. Generally speaking, Blair is ruled by her insecurities, despite a confident exterior, usually caused by her feeling inferior to Serena. While she's regarded as being extremely knowledgeable, Blair seldom leaves success to chance, or to her own talents, and usually works to sabotage her competition. Typically, Blair finds rivals in most females, including (and sometimes especially) Serena, her best friend. A result of this insecurity, Blair does not trust easily, and when she does is always tremendously hurt when she feels betrayed. However, despite her manipulative and often ruthless behavior, she is revealed to have a sensitive and loving nature as well.This side is revealed time and time again especially when Blair must come to the defense of someone she cares about. Notably, this protective, warm side is evoked by Serena or Chuck. Blair also seldom gives up on those that she cares about, as evidenced when Chuck was grieving his father's death and she continually came to his aid, even when rebuffed. Romantically speaking, Blair generally finds herself conflicted by her own expected desires and what she truly wants. With the exception of Chuck (and Dan in season 5), Blair almost always pursues relationships with men who offer a status symbol (Nate having been a handsome Archibald, or the royal titles that accompanied Lord Marcus or Prince Louis). Despite her social-climbing agenda within her love-life, Blair seems happiest when she has someone to spar with, and is usually at her best with a romantic partner who challenges her.
