Sure, Serena may have had that all tall, blonde, Blake Lively thing going on, but if you ask me Blair Waldorf was always Gossip Girl’s real leading lady. Queen B didn’t just dream herself into our favorite films, have one of craziest will-they-or-won’t-they realtionship of all time, and pull of a headband better than most 5 years olds. She was also full of wisdom, especially when it comes to fashion.

Which is why we’re looking back at a few of this character’s best  quotes. Sure the show may have ended in 2012, but blair’s wise words will live on in our hearts and, OK, netflix queues FOREVER.


1.”Whoever said that money doesn’t buy happiness didn’t know where to shop.”


2.”You need to be cold to be queen. Anne boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off.”


3.”The thing about new beginnings is that they require something else to end.”


4.”Destiny is for losers. It’s just a stupid excuse to wait for things to happen instead of making them happen.”


5.”Have a little faith, and if that doesn’t work, have a lot of mimosas.”


6.”You can’t make people love you, but you can make them fear you.”


7.”The problem with fairy tale is that they set a girl up for disappointment. In real life the prince goes off with the wrong princess.”


7.”People don’t write sonnets about being compatible. Or novels about shared life goals and stimulating conversation. The great loves are the crazy ones.
