Blair Waldorf is undoubtedly the powerful woman I aspire to be. Not only is her character fashionable and beautiful but she is also independent, loyal and determined. She truly embraces the saying, "dress for success." Blair Waldorf may be one of many main characters on "Gossip Girl" but she steals the show with her sassy remarks and powerful influences. Sure, Blair has her bad moments where she schemes against her enemies and tries to destroy their lives but she covers her tail by remaining committed to her family and friends. Blair's impeccable memory allows her to remember who crosses her and who remains faithful. When she is on your side, you know she will be there until the end.
Because of the savage nature of the Upper East Side of New York City, Blair often has to be cold-hearted and firm. However, anyone who has seen the show, knows that she is not really as unsympathetic as she seems. She strikes fear into people in order for them to respect her.
Blair is strong and independent while also letting her guard down and letting love in. I believe that is a great goal for a woman to strive for–to be able to protect and stand for yourself and what you believe in while also letting your feelings thrive.
The following quotes by the ruthless Queen Bee are sayings that I think prove that everyone should channel their inner Blair.
Command the room immediately.
Have goals in mind and plan to execute them.
Know what you're good at and make sure others know too.
Be in charge of your own path.
Perseverance is the key to success.
Remain committed to your friends.
Be the voice of reason when your girlfriend needs you.
Help her realize she deserves a better guy.
And then realize you don't need a man either.
Language is important to convey your superiority.
Stand by your opinions and speak your mind.
Shop 'til you drop.
Always put yourself first and have an idea of what you what to become.
And lastly, don't tolerate anyone's shit.
