This image portrays Serena Van Der Woodsen and Blair Waldorf as 1%ers from the hit television show “Gossip Girl”. Their attire depicts the disparity between the capitalist class vs. the working class. In the television show there are certainly justifications of inequality. While these two girls are in high school, their born status is higher than that of those who have worked their entire lives. They also feed into the ideas of conspicuous consumption done to display their status as 1%ers.
