The Style Evolution of Leighton Meester
In November 2006, a youthful Leighton Meester wore a summery frock with beaded ballet flats. Although the actress is naturally blond, we think brunette tresses complement her creamy complexion best.
Leighton attended a CW Network event in May 2007 wearing a low-key ivory sundress. The fresh-fraced starlet wore her hair straight and natural and chose a cute pair of T-strap sandals to complement the look.
Leighton exhibited a sophisticated sense of style early in her career. She attended a Gossip Girl event in September 2007 wearing this beaded tunic dress with an elegant updo. A hot pair of strappy sandals keep the look modern and young.
In April of 2008, Leighton looked like a goddess in this amazing peach Missoni number. She wore gold accessories to complement the fabulous gold trim on her dress. A soft updo and glowing makeup were perfect choices for the flawless look.
Posing in Posen
Leighton looked retro fabulous in this Zac Posen structured dress in July 2008. The puffed sleeves and diagonal top-stitching put a unique spin on a classic style. She modernized the look with a killer pair of metallic blue pumps with cutout details. Silver cocktail rings and diamond studs complete the winning look.
Leighton charmed at a Lucky Shops event In November 2008 wearing an adorable ruffled Marc Jacobs mini dress. The floral dress was a knockout thanks to its floaty tiers and asymmetrical shoulder tie. Strappy heels toughened up the feminine frock.
In March 2009, Leighton paired a ruffled 3.1 Phillip Lim nude dress with a pair of high-top black Reebok sneakers at a Lady Foot Locker event. Leighton threw on a black leather jacket and kept her hair in a loose updo for the casually cool look.
Leighton Meester was anything but a wallflower at the May 2009 Costume Institute Gala. The starlet dared to be different in a Louis Vuitton dress, matching leggings and wrap around heels. She paired her statement-making attire with a a cool chunky cuff, curly locks and a crimson pout.
Sheer Sex Appeal
Leighton walked the red carpet at the May 2009 MTV Movie Awards in this steamy black Emilio De La Morena mini dress and purple Brian Atwood ankle boots. The dress accentuated her svelte figure thanks to its revealing cutouts and sheer panels.
Leighton donned a flowing white Bottega Veneta gown to the September 2009 Emmy Awards. She accessorized with large gold cuffs on both wrists and jeweled dangling earrings. The dress' twisted back complemented her intricate updo, while a fiery red clutch and matching lipstick provided the perfect hint of color.
Full Blown Fashionista
Leighton Meester took on Paris Fashion Week in chic splendor. A moody watercolor print dress looked extra fab with a pair of chunky platform sandals and unexpectedly cool black socks.
Leighton flexed her edgy side in an ornately trimmed leather Chanel dress. The sexy long sleeved dress looked particularly fabulous with a dramatic silver statement necklace and military-inspired booties.
She's a Lady
Blair Waldorf would definitely approve of this ice blue Elie Saab confection. Leighton looked perfectly ladylike in the intricately beaded and ruffled frock. The designer's matching suede platforms complete the feminine red carpet look.
Leighton glowed in this floral embroidered Marc Jacobs Resort dress in September 2010. The sweet pastel frock complemented Leighton's peaches and cream complexion.
Leave it to Leighton to switch gears when you least expect it. A mere two days later, the actress turned up to a Proenza Schouler fashion show clad in the designer's '90s grunge-inspired look. Is it just us, or is it starting to smell like teen spirit?
The unexpected menswear attire Leighton wore to the Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards was yet another example of Leighton's willingness to take fashion risks. Leighton gave her Thom Browne suit a playful dose of color with eggplant Salvatore Ferragamo pumps and a bright green clutch. The starlet kept her look sultry with dramatic smokey eyes and unfussy waves.
Leighton was a ray of sunshine at the 2011 People's Choice Awards in a gray Vionnet Dress embroidered with playful flowers. Leighton perfectly complemented the youthful look with lavender Brian Atwood pumps and vibrant orange earrings.
