The Best Outfits From Reign

"Reign" is an American historical fiction television series created by Laurie McCarthy and Stephanie Sengupta which premiered on 2013 on The CW. The series follows Mary, Queen of Scots during her early years living in France in the mid-16th century. What could be better to distract you from the million things you have to do for tomorrow than gorgeous scenery, foreign accents, political (or should I say royal) intrigue, swoon-worthy French princes (hello Toby Regbo) -- and their (maybe even more swoon-worthy) bastard half-brothers (hello Torrance Coombs) -- and the fashion, of course! Let's look to Mary and her four original ladies in waiting -- Kenna, Greer, Lola and Ailee -- for inspiration. Because, after all, when all of France is just a chess move away from a blood-bath, and your husband's manipulative, Machiavellian mother is (not-so-secretly) trying to poison you, you may as well look the part.


All of the women have gorgeous clothes, but, personally, I like Mary's style the best. She has this way of wearing really feminine pieces, but she never ends up looking fragile in them.

Red is, always has been and always will be the color of passion. Pair that with some royal gold earrings and you're ready to take on the world.

If red screams "passion," black definitely represents power and mystery. The subtle touches of the large earrings, headband and rings, add an element of glamour to this gorgeous embroidered dress. The subtle detail of small braids in Mary's hair give her a touch of sophistication that fits well with the overall outfit.

Here, Mary sports dress that looks like a church window painting. The color and pattern matches perfectly with her crown, giving her a look appropriate for a queen


I don't want to spoil anything, but let's just say Kenna aims high with using her beauty (and wit, charm etc.) to gain power in French Court. She knows what she wants, and she is going to get it. She's reckless and impulsive, and more free-spirited than the others, so some of her outfits have little bohemian touches, such as the headband in this angelic ensemble:

The dream-catcher necklace in this outfit adds a spark of originality to a flattering black and white long-sleeved lace dress.

This elaborate blue and gold bodice dress with a black shawl is the perfect ensemble to wear for Kenna when she wants to deliver a sassy comment:


Greer is the eldest in her family and comes to Court hoping to find an eligible (read: rich) husband (ring a bell anyone? Sounds a lot like Princeton Mom to me). Greer's fashion is slightly more conservative than the other ladies-in-waiting.

Greer looks mature and sophisticated in this grey silk dress:

This beautiful dark purple long-sleeve dress with hold embellishments brings out the highlights in Greer's long blond hair.

This fabulous embroidery and detailing cream-colored short-sleeve dress matches beautifully with Greer's earrings and headband for a polished look


Lola comes from a wealthy and noble family. She's brave, stubborn, loyal to Mary and she has a bit of temper when she's upset. There's nothing like a gorgeous, ruffled, light pink dress to bring out the shine in her chestnut curls:

This stunning white and gold floral dress coupled with a gold waist-band and headband is perfect for dancing:

This intricately-made burgundy dress with a gold necklace fits well when Lola is busy gossiping about court intrigue:


Probably the most bubbly and innocent of the girls, Ailee's fashion is flirty and sweet. This white lace dress gives her an air of innocence:

This fun floral dress paired with a grey fur shawl and cute hair accessories and braids emphasizes Ailee's fun-loving personality:

The lovely, unique color of this long-sleeve mint-green dress and headpiece brings out the green in Ailee's hazel eyes.

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.

America's biggest party schools

These are known for their lively party scenes

America's biggest party schools
Determining which schools are the biggest party schools is often subjective, but a some statistical factors you could use to make a judgement include (1) consumption, (2) drug usage, (3) strong greek life presence, (4) campus police records etc.

When a student at Auburn was recently asked, she explained: "These schools usually have, like, a super vibrant social scene, lots of Greek life (like my amazing sorority, duh!), and tons of exciting events happening all the time. I mean, we're talking about tailgates, themed parties, mixers with fraternities, and just, like, so much fun. But don't get me wrong, we still, like, study and go to class and all that. It's just that at a party school, the social life and having a good time are, like, major priorities for students."
