40 TV and Movie Characters Who Were The Quintessential IT Girls
Blair Waldorf (Gossip Girl)
As the lead character on a show called Gossip Girl, Blair Waldorf almost automatically merited inclusion on this list. Blair is a complex figure on the show. She’s a wealthy New York socialite who can sometimes be snobbish, but that’s not the only thing that defines her.
There are occasional moments of sentiment and sweetness that punctuate Blair’s persona. Leighton Meester believes that Blair is insecure about her social status, which only feeds into flaws in her character. Even New York socialites have insecurities. That’s one of the overriding lessons of Gossip Girl, and helps explain why the show holds up so well.
