When I posted about The Disco Song from Student of the Year, MissMalini reader Namrata made a comment saying that she wondered whether Alia Bhatt‘s look was inspired by Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl. I’m a huge Blair fan, so I was kicking myself for not having made the connection earlier. Anyhow, I immediately saw the similarity, so I delved a little deeper and I found three things that Alia Bhatt’s character and Blair Waldorf have in common. One, of course, is the pricey private school education in an extravagant school, and the corresponding uniform. Here are the other two!
Blair Waldorf is nothing without her snark, and from the pictures alone, I can sense this in Alia’s character as well. There’s something about that extremely self-important way with which Alia carries herself that just screams Blair Waldorf – I’m willing to bet she’s the Queen Bee of her school as well!
Perhaps the most important of them all: Blair is famous for her headbands, and Alia seems to be wearing one almost permanently. “Wear headbands all the time” is number one on my “How to Be Like Blair Waldorf” list (I mean… no, of course I don’t keep such a list… *shifty eyes*), so it’s easy to see why headbands is the most immediate connection between the two.
What do you think – see the similarity?
