When asked about his favorite fashion moment in the series finale, Gossip Girl costume designer Eric Daman has two instant answers.

“Serena descending the staircase in her gilded Georges Chakra wedding gown is a moment to remember forever,” he tells PEOPLE. “And Chuck and Blair (in Elie Saab) finally in wedding blues.”

Throughout its six seasons, the show offered many major style memories, though Daman finds it hard to pick just a few standouts.

Check Out Leighton Meester's New (Way Shorter!) Hairdo

So long, Blair Waldorf! It took less than one week from the Gossip Girl wrap party for Leighton Meester to begin distancing herself from her character. How she did it? By cutting her hair. (And ditching those headbands, of course.)

The actress showed off her choppy above-the-shoulder bob at a Flaunt Magazine party in West Hollywood, Calif. on Thursday.

Last month, the star hinted to The Cut that she might do away with her character’s signature long, wavy locks after the show finished filming. “I haven’t really been able to change my hair for six years — and I used to do it all the time,” she said. “So I think if the mood strikes me, I’ll cut my hair or dye it or try different things.”

We wonder if a new hair color is up next? Maybe she’ll go back to her roots: she is a natural blonde, after all. Tell us: What do you think of Meester’s short new ‘do?

'Gossip Girl' Season Six Premiere Fashion Recap

Oct/09/2012 at 03:30 PM ET

Between Serena going by “Sabrina” and claiming she grew up in Wisconsin and Rufus and Ivy’s hook-up (ew?!), Gossip Girl‘s season six premiere’s plot was as unrealistic and all over the place as ever. But story line aside, the clothes (unsurprisingly) surpassed our expectations. Here are the top four style moments from last night’s episode:

Serena Gossip Girl Season PremiereGiovanni Rufino/The CW

1. “Sabrina’s” wedding dress: The last time we saw Serena, she was passed out on a train to nowhere. After not hearing from her all summer, the gang goes on a hilarious search-and-rescue mission. When they find Serena (who’s now going by “Sabrina” for reasons we still don’t quite get) she’s not only alive and well, she’s attending a wedding with her new millionaire boyfriend, Steven. And Serena/Sabrina must be super-smitten with her new beau because she color-coordinated her very low-cut yellow-and-white Jenny Packham gown with his pocket square. Now that’s love, people!

Friday Flashback: 'Gossip Girl' Edition

Oct/05/2012 at 05:30 PM ET

The countdown is on: There are only three more days until the sixth and final season of Gossip Girl kicks off. And we care about one thing and one thing only: what S and B will be wearing.

In anticipation of the season premiere, we decided to take a trip down memory lane and find the looks the two leading ladies wore for the series premiere five years ago.

The very first glimpse we got of Serena van der Woodsen was when she arrived at Grand Central Terminal, returning to the city after having disappeared to boarding school (left).

Her debut look consisted of a light-brown leather jacket, a nautical striped top and dark denim. It was rather covered-up and simple compared to the high-fashion, mixed-print and downright sexy ensembles that came to be Serena’s calling card. Also of note: her hair. Gorgeous, but it’s definitely gotten shinier and more voluminous as the seasons have gone on.

And of course, we couldn’t forget about Blair Waldorf’s first outfit on the show: it was the black lace-and-sheer babydoll dress she was wearing when she found out her long-lost BFF was back in town. (Watch the below clip if you need a refresher.) The ethereal mini (designed by her TV mother, Eleanor) was finished off with what would become Queen B’s signature accessory: a headband. Six seasons later, B occasionally dons headbands, but she pairs them with getups that are far more ladies-who-lunch.
