Probably best know as Blair Waldorf in the CW’s Gossip Girl (or for her recent role in The Roommate), Leighton Meester’s style is far from that of her Upper East Side character. Leighton pulls off an edgy look with ease and has no problem experimenting with different looks. And, unlike her costar Taylor Momsen, Leighton’s adventurous style doesn’t include looking like a prostitute.
Gracing the covers of Seventeen and Nylon this month, the star showed off her cute side, but her dark side still lurks.
Leighton has perfected the body-con mini and heels combo, amping up the look with killer prints and amazing footwear. But, don’t think that’s the only look she can pull off. She’s not afraid of sultry hues, ruching or cut-outs, not to mention, sheer looks.
Leighton’s most adventurous outfit to date was a sheer Marchesa jumpsuit she wore to a Harry Winston event. She’s also worn more classic looks like the Burberry dress she stepped out in at the Golden Globes. The actress has even managed to grab a spot in Missoni’s spring campaign, a brand that Leighton certainly embodies.
However, the best thing about Leighton’s style is that she pulls off being edgy without being over the top. She never seems awkward or uncomfortable in anything she wears, which makes fans love her more and has made people take notice of this daring actress’s style. Leighton doesn’t let the clothing wear her, but wears the clothes with ease and confidence. The actress doesn’t seem to be trying too hard or seeking attention by going sans pants in January (I’m looking at you Gaga!).
Leighton has quickly become a fashion force to be reckoned with by steering clear of classic looks and designers, opting instead to wear edgy pieces from designer who have no problem with wild prints and sheer clothing. There’s no doubt that if Leighton stays on this path the actress will become known for something other than being the princess of the Upper East Side.Tags: adventurous, Blair Waldorf, burberry, edgy, fashion, Gossip Girl, Leighton Meester, Marcesa, style, The Roommate
