This week, Leighton Meester was back on the set of ‘Gossip Girl’ and spurring on the very ‘now‘ yellow trend of Spring 2012 while filming with co-star Ed Westwick in New York City. Her lemon-hued coat was worn over a floral-print dress from Peter Som‘s Spring/Summer collection.
To toe the look, Leighton was dressed in maroon Mary Jane pumps by Miu Miu and a matching cross-body handbag from Stella McCartney. Finished with a bun and pearls, this is a total go-to for ‘colour meets ladylike’.
The styling of Leighton Meester‘s latest magazine cover – for Marie Claire – was gorgeous, ethereal, and beautifully varied. On the cover, she wore a lemon-coloured chiffon top from Reed Krakoff Spring/Summer 2012. View Post
Probably my favourite look from Leighton Meester as of late was the ensemble she wore to attend a screening of ‘The Woman Dress’. The film was a short, directed by Giada Colagrande, that was part of a series of films that explore women’s love affair with Miu Miu. Leighton’s Prada Spring/Summer 2012 dress was a divine choice for her shape, and an unexpected choice for a Miu Miu event.
The version she wore had a deeper plunge and an altered print to the runway version, but the lemon-coloured skirt was untouched. I think I actually prefer this bodice to the runway version.
For the beginning of Fashion Week, Leighton attended the amfAR New York Gala wearing a Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2012 dress. This dress was one of my favourites of the season, so I am ecstatic that Leighton ended up wearing it on the red carpet. Critics, however, seem to have quite a problem with her hair at this event.
A garment perhaps a little too fashion-forward for such soft, feminine curls? The Louis Vuitton sequined bag she carried was gorgeous, but I may have to agree, the hair and shoes weren’t as edgy as I would hope for with the styling of this dress.
On her way to Vera Wang’s show for Autumn/Winter 2012, Leighton wore a Stella McCartney A/W 2010 Coat, green printed Vera Wang V-Neck Dress, yellow Giuseppe Zanotti Cutout Suede Sandals, and the Bvlgari Serpenti handag. Street style at it’s best – the ‘girly curls’ really work here.
This week, we have some seasonally appropriate choices for Leighton Meester Style – Gossip Girl was filming winter NYC scenes!
On the first day, Miss Meester wore a lovely, belted Diane von Furstenberg ‘Mikhaila’ wool coat, the striking orange Loewe ‘Amazona’ satchel, DKNY floral tights, Badgley Mischka satin pumps, and a soft cream-coloured scarf. Transitioning away from headbands, her character also seems to be on a hat-wearing track…
…that continued through to her next ensemble! The succeeding day of shooting, Leighton Meester and Penn Badgley were spotted filming new scenes together. On this occasion, she wore a covetable Gryphon olive-green cape, a flared Alice + Olivia ‘Oshi’ boucle skirt, burgundy Miu Miu Mary Jane pumps, and a mustard necktie blouse to match her Fendi ‘Peekaboo’ bag. A MUST.
As the latest season of Gossip Girl continues with filming, I am looking forward to seeing more and more of Blair Waldorf‘s stylishly prim ensembles before they hit the small screen. THe latest look (seen above) was comprised of a nude Moschino ruffle pearl tweed jacket, an Alberta Ferretti embellished neck-tie chiffon dress, Roger Vivier platform court heels, and the all-important Marc Jacobs quilted handbag.
My favourite look of the week, however, comes from Leighton Meester when she attended the “HTC Serves Up NYC” product launch event at the Highline Stages in New York City.
Not only did Leighton wear the very first red carpet appearance of Marios Schwab‘s Resort 2012 collection (the long-sleeved black dress with the aquatic graphic-print skirt), but she also wore the Burberry Prorsum Resort 2012 tribal heels that showed up on the runway at London Fashion Week just this past Monday! Oh, closet lust, you are my inevitable downfall.
