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’.
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.
I feel like wearing snakes as clothes.

As “Metro” launches it’s Autumn/Winter 2012 show coverage the same day – it will be brilliant press for him. He intends to provide his infamous commentary as well as some of his gorgeous illustrations.
And there’s something in it for you, too! Though it hasn’t been launched yet, there will be a global web site launched where you can submit your “fashion statements” to a Look Book competition for a chance to fly to Paris and be an editorial assistant on February 6th, and lots of Lagerfeld swag, to boot.
