Style: Leighton Meester

When Gossip Girl wrapped up and Leighton Meester said goodbye to her role as Blair Waldorf, women everywhere felt… well… sad. And not just because they were addicted to watching the elite of New York but because, well… where would we get our next fashion fix from?

Luckily, Leighton Meester doesn’t need Blair to be a woman of style. This leading lady isn’t afraid to take risks, bend the rules and be herself off-camera too. From high fashion glamour to down to earth casualwear, Ms Meester has us swooning for her chic style.

Leighton is a style chameleon when gracing the red carpet. One minute, she is a poster girl for demure, lady-like style; and the next you’ll spot her in a mini dress with her hot pins out on show!

And it seems the fashion world is paying big attention too – designers like Mui Mui, Louis Vuitton and Vera Wang are drowning her with custom made dresses and sitting her front row at their shows.

Leighton’s hair and makeup is always simple. Light curls or super sleek straight hair is her go-to style but she also loves a simple up-do. Her makeup is fresh and natural and sometimes features a bright pop of lip colour like an on-trend orange or bold red.

Leighton’s off-duty style screams comfort. She’s a denim girl, regularly spotted in shorts and jeans. She also rocks a feminine summer dress perfectly. Her usual companion for an off-duty day is a good fedora and a hot pair of heels. With a petite frame, a little bit of extra height support doesn’t hurt! Oh - and neither does having her hot new fiancee, Adam Brody on her arm!

You can shop Leighton’s style at ASOS, net-a-porter and Topshop.
