From Canada back down to the good old USA, there is a whole lot of great fashion being worn by our beloved Leighton Meester. Starting off at the 2011 Toronto Film Festival, she was out to promote her new movie – “The Oranges” in a gorgeous white, eyelet Alexander McQueen Resort 2012 dress. She used McQueen from head to toe with a gold-accented white box clutch as well as animal print pumps. To emphasise her waist, she also threw on a large leather belt.
After that, lovely Leighton made her way to The Variety Studio at Holt Renfrew (again, at the Toronto Film Festival 2011). This time, she chose to wear an aquamarine and navy look from Resort 2012 by Louis Vuitton; in fact, it was the same look that Arizona Muse – my obsession – modeled for the collection. The pleated dress was layered underneath the black “Carlitta” jacket from Nonoo and plenty of colourful bracelets on both wrists. She then added a youthful flair with pair of pink and tan wedges from Pierre Hardy.
Lastly, Meester returned to New York to film new episodes as Blair Waldorf in Gossip Girl. In what is definitely the most extravagant look of the three, she wore a silk Moschino Cheap & Chic lemon-print blouse, a nude Spring/Summer 2011 skirt by Carlos Miele Spring/Summer 2011, and blouse-matching Loeffler Randall criss-cross Sandals.
“We hope to introduce a fresh perspective to this iconic collection, while honoring Superga’s legacy of timeless design.”

It’s been a while since the last Leighton Meester Style update, hasn’t it? Thankfully, as Gossip Girl Season 5 kicks off later this month (September 26, 8pm on The CW!), our real-life Blair Waldorf has been out and about more often. Most recently, Leighton performed with her band Check in The Dark at the Tiffany’s & Co. boutique during Fashion’s Night Out in New York City. She actress-cum-singer-cum-fashionista opted for an effortless, sky blue, cloud-printed Carven Resort 2012 maxi dress.
She chose to accessorize with ballet flats from Roger Vivier and Tiffany & Co. jewellery – silver, hooped earrings and a matching silver necklace with a star-shaped charm. Brilliantly bohemian yet polished.
Earlier, as the face of Vera Wang’s fragrance “Lovestruck“, she made an appearance the launch of the new scent in a lemon sorbet-coloured, ruched chiffon dress from Vera Wang Lavender Label along with the “Esam” platform pump by Jimmy Choo.
I love Roxane Mesquida, and soon, so will you. While everyone is in a tizzy over Elizabeth Hurley being added to the cast of “Gossip Girl“, Mesquida is the addition worth your stylish attention.
The French actress and model is set to play Prince Louis’ sister; she is coming to New York unhappy with her brother’s decision to marry Blair Waldorf (aka style obsession Leighton Meester). Roxane was recently spotted on set with Leighton in nude platform heels by Fendi, a grey embellished bag by Valentino and a gorgeous, v-neck Missoni dress.
While I am hoping they take more risks with Roxane’s wardrobe, I also hope they take some inspiration from her personal style. The laissez-faire sartorial flair of Mesquida is enviably nonchalant, and would translate to screen beautifully.
The fifth season of “Gossip Girl” will be premiering Monday, September 27 at 8pm.
