Into the present: Blair is trying so hard to shed the Clothes for Skanks image that was projected when Sage stripped down at her fashion show, that she's gone full boar in the other direction and started designing baptismal shrouds for adult women who are about to enter a religious cult. We also need to discuss again how stupid that twist is. Most fashion shows involve girls younger than Sage wearing skimpier clothes than that -- many even including a flash of ass or nipple. And nobody clutches their pearls and screams exploitation and storms out, much less some dingy socialite (ahem, Serena). Now, maybe they SHOULD do all those things, but they don't. So this whole plot is absurd, as is that dress.
