The Iconic Blake Lively Gossip Girl Grey Dress? We’ve Finally Found The Perfect Dupes

It’s been 16 years since it first aired and 11 years since the finale and yet, we’re still swooning over the iconic Blake Lively Gossip Girl grey dress! And, if we’re being totally honest, countless other looks from the show. But this stunning Zuhair Murad gown that Serena Van Der Woodsen wears to the opera in season 4 (episode 8 if you fancy a re-watch!) has always been a stand out. We’ve been trying to replicate the look for years but never found quite the right dresses. That is, until now. After a lengthy search of countless designer gowns the world’s leading online fashion stores have to offer, we’ve selected the most Serena-worthy silhouettes out there. Keep scrolling to discover and shop all that we’ve found. You know you want to, XOXO…

Long Lace Sleeve Dresses To Rival The Blake Lively Gossip Girl Grey Dress

One of the many, many things we love about the Blake Lively Gossip Girl grey dress are those allover delicate lace details. Luckily, we found dresses like the gathered draped lace gown by Rasario so we can finally replicate the look. With long lace sleeves, a structured bodice, gathered detailing on the waist, and even a fitted mini skirt with a maxi-length lace overlay, this stunning designer dress ticks every box. Of course, it is black rather than grey. However, that only serves to make it even more versatile so wear can wear it on repeat! Finally, do as Serena does and style this dress with coordinating heels, a simple clutch, and statement drop earrings.


Meanwhile, the floral-embroidered mock-neck tulle gown by Rickie Freeman is the perfect mix of black and grey. Once again the long lace sleeves give a subtle nod to our inspo dress. Additionally, the dramatic floor-length skirt and intricate floral embroidery are just as irresistible as the rest of Blake’s designer gowns on the show.


Blake Lively Gossip Girl Grey Dress Styles You'll Want To Be Spotted In

Now, if you have your heart set on a dress in that gorgeous shade of gray, you won’t be disappointed. We searched everywhere to find the exact right hue and came across the most stunning silhouettes. For example, the Marley pleated long-sleeve dress by Ramy Brook. Offering up serious Serena Van Der Woodsen vibes, this dress wows with long sleeves, a plunging V-neckline, and a playful pleated skirt with a handkerchief hem. Style it with high heeled sandals and silver jewelery to nail the overall vibe and color scheme of our inspo look!


Another grey gown we can see Serena slipping into is the off-the-shoulder draped stretch-jersey gown by Dolce & Gabbana. Simple yet undeniably stylish, this dress screams quiet luxury. A style Serena (and Blake) wear perfectly every time. Our advice? Style this dress with simple delicate silver jewelery, a clutch back, and a pointed pumps for your next event. You’ll feel like an Upper East side style icon every time you do!
