Get ‘Gossip Girl’ Party-Perfect Dresses — Designed by the Show’s Stylist For Under $50!
Kyle Dean Reinford
When Gossip Girl stylist Eric Daman was approached to create a line for budget-friendly chain Charlotte Russe, deciding what he would design was a no-brainer. ”It just seems so apropos to what I do on the show,” he told PEOPLE of his collection of party dresses. “It’s like a ball or a gala every episode. I didn’t want to do separates. Serena van der Woodsen T-shirts? You can buy that. I wanted to do something special.” Even the Blair Waldorfs of the world will be tempted by Daman’s dresses, with prices starting at only $34.50. Expect lots of full skirts made for twirling with glittering accents galore. And while he loves designing high-fashion at low prices, he has to admit, dressing on an unlimited budget is a treat. But when it comes to picking his favorite characters to clothe, like any proud parent, it’s tough to choose. “It’s like your children. You can’t pick your favorite child. I love them all,” he says, before revealing his weakness for the show’s most dapper gentleman. “Chuck Bass has a very special place in my heart. It’s that Saville Row thing.” So, is a men’s line up next for the Upper East Side’s resident wardrobe specialist? “Yes, but I’m not allowed to talk about that yet,” he hints.
