XOXOh-Mama Mia!

By Devon Scott

What can be said about Lily Van der Woodsen Bass Humphrey (I'm sure I'm missing several other last names -- she's been married around the same amount of times as Elizabeth Taylor)? 

The notorious Mom of Gossip Girl (played by Kelly Rutherford) who tries a little too hard to take care of her daughter, Serena, and son, Eric, even committing perjury and committing her son to avoid a scandal.

She is, hands down, the most stylish Mom I've ever seen. 

Lily has a never-ending collection of Hermes Birkin bags (seriously, I think I've seen her carry 5-6 different ones).  The bags are so legendary that a waiting list remains in place in order to get one (and they run on ebay into the five-digit numbers for bidding). 

Lily's style is one of class and refinement -- nary a hair out of place, never too much make-up or accessories.  While never quite saying what Lily does (other than marry rich men), we do know she is involved in the board at Bass Industries, is a former Hamilton House member, and is a graduate of Brown University.

Lily also went through a "grunge/rebellion" phase where she met her now-husband Rufus Humphrey (and had some incident on the back of the Nine Inch Nails tour bus). 

Since then, her style has evolved quite a bit.  She dons labels like Escada (blue jersey knit dress $695), Elie Tahari (Emory belted cotton white dress $368), Elie Saab, Burberry (trench coat $895), and Chanel, among others.  The classic labels with the classic lines preferred by Manhattan socialites (particularly those in the 35 and up set).

Over the past two seasons of "Gossip Girl," we've seen Lily sport the "statement" necklace.  Chunky, bejeweled, taking the basic dress for a board meeting or lunch up a notch (necklace/Alexis Bittar/$395).

When she hits the town, Lily wears names like Armani and Reem Acra (the deep purple of this gown is absolutely stunning).  She stays age-appropriate (but clearly has a personal trainer).

Hopefully, Lily will settle the messes she's made thusfar this season (see the perjury reference above) and still manage to look chic beyond her years!

You know you love me ~
