Dear Pennies & Pens,
For this week’s, Tuesday’s Stylish Thoughts I decided to feature actress & singer, Leighton Meester. Leighton is best known for her role as Blair Waldorf on the CW’s hit show, Gossip Girl. A few months ago, I featured Blake Lively who is Leighton’s Gossip Girl co-star. I love Blake’s sense of fashion because she always looks amazing on the red carpet. Also, after seeing her most recent film, The Town, I know she’s an amazing actress. However, after doing research on Leighton this afternoon it is clear that Leighton is the true fashionista. Her style is SICK!
Leighton knows how to glam it up for a movie or TV premiere and her out & about style is just as fabulous. Leighton can rock anything from the white collared short sleeve top with a black pencil skirt, or a grey shirt dress, or another outfit that consists of a Proenza Schouler top, Phi leather pants and Alex Birman shoes.
The red carpet looks range from little black dresses to emerging designers like Prabal Gurung. Notice the difference between Leighton’s more casual “appearance” outfits and her red carpet glam looks.
Leighton is also a budding singer signed with Universal Republic. Her first single “Somebody To Love” featured Robin Thicke and was released in 2009. Leighton has also released a second single, “Your Love’s A Drug”. I love both tracks, Leighton has a nice sound and I’m excited to see how she’ll grow as an artist. I loved her role in the film Country Strong and she definitely can control the stage as a singer.
Leighton has also appeared in magazine editorials. I loved the this spread from InStyle magazine because it features high end fashion designers and Leighton truly looks like a model. Overall, this girl is definitely multi-talented which is why she just became the face of Vera Wang’s “Lovestruck” perfume. So definitely stay tuned for more great things from Leighton.
And there it is. The Fashion & Style of the Pen…de la Pen.
