Last night, Gossip Girl celebrated it’s 100th episode with a party at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City. For once, I think both Leighton Meester and Blake Lively hit it out of the red-carpet-park.
Leighton wore an ecru Balmain strapless mini dress with a floaty skirt and great front-clasp details. Her Jimmy Choo sandals pulled the look together while keeping all eyes on the beautifully constructed dress.
Then we have Blake Lively in a bold dress from Marchesa Spring/Summer 2012. Elaborate embroidery and fringe presents the risk of looking overdressed, but works on Blake’s tall frame and easygoing beauty aesthetic. Paired with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Versace’s crystal embellished platform d’Orsay sandals, she looked absolutely beautiful.
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.
Over the past two days, two of my favourite celebrity ladies have really impressed me on the fashion front.
First, we have Zooey Deschanel – the actress commonly confused for Katy Perry who gained major fame in Elf, 500 Days of Summer, and will soon appear in “New Girl” on Fox). Though she was stuck in a must-wear-black-tights uniform for years, she has recently started becoming a little more adventurous with her fashion choices.
At yesterday’s LA premiere for “Our Idiot Brother” (which took place at the ArcLight Cinemas), Zooey wore a monochrome Moschino dress from the Fall/Winter 2011 collection. Though the look is two-toned from top to bottom – where she sports a black pair of YSL Trib Toos – the ruffled detail at the waist and her oversized, detachable collar keeps it very Zooey. With a wavy, side-swept bun and super-long false lashes (only on her lower lash line), she is the farthest thing from Plain Jane.
Then we have the utterly gorgeous Kristen Bell on her way to a private ‘swag bag’ party which took place at an undisclosed residence in Brentwood, California on Sunday. The beautiful blonde paired together two separate Alberta Ferretti Spring/Summer 2011 pieces that I will now be seeing in my fashion dreams. They happen nightly.
The separates were a taupe, crocheted long-sleeve top paired with a grass-green skirt which was also covered in an apricot print. Accessories-wise we have the crocodile Jimmy Choo “Rhea” tote, orange stiletto-heeled pumps and gold-trimmed sunglasses. Nothing ‘matches’ but every item compliments the next. My kind of style.

This morning, I spent a total of six hours tweeting you every fashionable and entertaining moment of the Oscars – from red carpet to Best Picture. Though my brain is now mush, the Academy Awards had such an exceptional fashion showing that I had to share my best dressed list with you in time for the Western timezones’ morning blog check! Prominent trends were nude colouring, sparkles, burgundies and lilacs: see below. View Post
