Um, No: You Know You Want It Edition

Does anybody else find it off-putting that nearly everyone who showed up to the party for Gossip Girl stylist Eric Daman's new book "You Know You Want It" looked a little less than stylish?

Blake Lively seemed to be on her way to a Motley Crue show, rather than a book party at Bendel's. Honestly, the leather leggings are pretty cool (are they perforated? We can't tell), but the combination of leather leggings and black-bra-under-a-white-unbuttoned-blouse is just a little much.

Leighton Meester has great legs, but is wearing what can be described less as a miniskirt and more of a postage stamp. And mixing hot pink neon and a purple pattern. And a slightly sheer gray jacket. It's like she grabbed whatever she saw first and put it together.

Michelle Trachtenberg's chic navy-and-black dress is rather pretty, and the chunky necklace she wore is also quite striking, but somehow adding ultra-dark lips, slicked-back hair, and lots more black gave the whole look an oddly goth effect.

Jessica Szohr seems to be the only cast member who managed to pull off a chic look, though wiht all the black-on-black it wasn't exactly a red carpet thrill.

Even socialite and non-cast member Olivia Palermo, who's usually pretty on point when it comes to style, made a rather unfortunate choice of an upholstery-inspired patterned velvet dress.

And finally, the man of the hour: stylist-turned-author Eric Daman. We applaud him for wearing a tuxedo to his book party (who doesn't look smashing in a tuxedo?) but piles of bracelets and rings, added to a bow-tie covered in skulls, seems a bit over-the-top for our tastes.
