Though we all wish Blair Waldorf was a real person, we can refrain from being discouraged as there is a true ‘Gossip Girl’ that parades around New York City with an equally fabulous grace. This A-list American socialite is none other than Tinsley Mortimer, a Virginia native turned New Yorker upon her graduation from Columbia University.
As an individual who has been featured in WWD, Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar and who is the designer of her own handbag line for Samantha Thavasa, Tinsley is a style icon that no one can forget.
Best known for her girly-girl style and striking blonde hair, Tinsley always makes the best-dressed list whether she’s sitting front row at a Carolina Herrera fashion show or attending the CFDA Awards.

Below are examples of Tinsley’s ensembles that demonstrate just how a touch of color can go a long way. Her eye for mixing bright colors in a cohesive manner never ceases to amaze photographers.
Tinsley’s bright tangerine coat offers a bold statement with simpler items underneath. The cream and orange accentuate her skin tone and blonde hair while the orange is complimented throughout her look with gold accessories and matching nails.
Looking as though she is a real-life Barbie doll, Tinsley is stunning in this Giambattista Valli gown and clutch from her own collection. The pop of color contrasted with the bow belt allows for a daring juxtaposition that truly works in her favor.
Daring to mix and match patterns, Tinsley demonstrates how to be bold yet elegant with this ensemble. In matching her frock with a pair of turquoise heels, Tinsley makes a trendy and chic statement as she rocks the red carpet once again.
