IBJUBIERJNGIEJFGNE. I love seeing Leighton Meester in spreads that aren’t Photoshopped to the heavens or injected with plasti-smiles (looking at you, teen ‘magazines’). The Gossip Girl left Blair Waldorf behind for L’Officiel Lithuania‘s March issue, channeling Hepburn 2011 in a neon pink Lanvin S/S 2011 top, emerald green Jil Sander S/S 2011 skirt, pink stilettos and slick mane. The rest of the looks are a compilation of MaxMara, YSL, Gucci and Fendi: masters of la séduction facile. View Post
Last night, Leighton Meester wore an ornate, long Burberry Prorsum Pre-Fall 2011 dress to the Golden Globes. The night before, the Gossip Girl was at the Art of Elysium sporting a Louis Vuitton dress and clutch along with Roger Vivier heels, combined with another face of elegant, minimalist makeup. I just can’t quit you, Meester.
IMG are launching a battle of the celebrity blondes. While Dakota Fanning made the IMG Models Board this weekend, a source at the agency has confirmed that Gossip Girl Taylor Momsen has been dumped. Neither piece of information is particularly surprising as Taylor is clearly on a downward trajectory (and had no deals of late) while Dakota is blossoming into a beautiful woman with a great career both behind and ahead of her. I’m sure her role in Twilight doesn’t hurt, either. Someone please just sign Momsen to the Big Sister program.
Leighton Meester didn’t look like she felt the winter weather so many of us are suffering while red-carpetting at the LA premiere for her new film “Country Strong“. The Gossip Girl got frocktastic in a Christian Dior floral minidress which she paired with a fuschia and orange Pierre Hardy ankle-strap wedges. The expected glamour was injected with a dash of gold Cathy Waterman accessories.
Additionally, we can share some Waldorf woohoos as a little birdy has informed me she has been asked to be the new face of Missoni. She can add this accomplishment to her campaign for Vera Wang‘s new fragrance that will also be released next year. It’s comforting to see such a promising young star has the potential to leave such a cult character as Blair Waldorf and stay on top of the industry (yes, it has been confirmed she is leaving in two years).
Final notes? Leighton Meester > Taylor Swift. See Meester’s video for “Summer Girl” below. View Post
My confession of the day: I adore Leighton Meester. Her stylist, Logan Horne, knows just how to dress her and shares a dress sense just as fabulous as her Gossip Girl character Blair Waldorf, with a little spice and frivolity. From now on – in the inventively named ‘Leighton Meester Style‘ category – I will chronicle her wardrobe. I accept thank yous via Louboutins.
To kick this fashion diary off, we will take a look at Leighton’s appearance last night at the Gotham Independent Film Awards. With Thom Browne‘s new entrance into mass-market womenswear, she is the first big shot we have seen wearing one of his androgynous suits. She finished off her look with Salvatore Ferragamo pumps and Bulgari jewelry.
