Yes! Leighton Meester is back on the style circuit. Above, we have the official ad for Vera Wang’s “Lovestruck” fragrance – shot by Carter Smith – which Leighton is the spokesmodel for. The ad is a little bit Pretty Woman and unnecessarily Photoshopped, though brush off-able. C’mon, it’s Leighton.
For the fragrance launch, Meester wore a Vera Wang Pre-Spring 2011 top and pants, Roger Vivier shoes, and Cathy Waterman jewellery.
Later on, she joined Vera Wang to light up the Empire State Building. The landmark was illuminated in red and white to raise awareness about DKMS, the world’s largest bone marrow donor center. With ombre hair, Leighton paired a beige Vera Wang Fall/Winter 2011 sleeveless top with a body-lengthening Vera Wang Spring/Summer 2011 floral print skirt. Toffee-coloured Brian Atwood “Debra” slingbacks completed her outfit.
FINALLY – yes, this is all in one day – she attended the DKMS Gala in a Vera Wang Pre-Fall 2011 dress, Cathy Waterman Diamond Leaf Drop Earrings, and the same Brian Atwood heels. Let’s hope she had today off.
A MAC Cosmetics spokesmodel and bombshell with designer love for Marc Jacobs and Christian Dior, she seems to have her finger on everything within reach. It’s also all her own, notably saying “…the one time I hired a stylist, they picked up a pair of my 1940s shoes and said, ‘These would look really cute with jeans.’ I immediately said, ‘You’re out of here.”
The only person we know works directly for Dita is Catherine D’lish – her best friend and designer/collaborator of all her on-stage costumes.
She has walked fashion weeks for Moschino Cheap & Chic, Heatherette, Giambattista Valli, and Jean Paul Gaultier (as you saw yesterday.) Gaultier’s show was especially fabulous thanks to the va-va-voom of von Teese’s sartorial striptease. Click for more.
