Runway To “Gossip Girl” – Leighton Meester In Victoria Beckham Collection

Ed Westwick and Leighton Meester were spotted on the Upper East side of Manhattan filming scenes for “Gossip Girl” yesterday.

In this scene Ed aka Chuck Bass, kisses Leighton aka Blair Waldorf which sent the watching fans wild with excitement.

Leighton looked gorgeous on set – as always – wearing a claret red Victoria Beckham Fall 2009 sleeveless ‘Carmontelle’ dress with a peplum at the waist.

She Blair-fied the dress with a trademark headband and pearls, whilst carrying a crocodile Birkin-esqe bag which could be a nod to the designer known for her fabulous – vast – collection of Birkin bags.

Victoria’s second collection has a much younger feel to her debut collection, so it’s not a surprise to see Leighton’s character wearing this dress.

The dress is sharp in it’s tailoring, very refined and ladylike – just like Blair.

The classically-inspired dress has a Audrey Hepburn and Rita Hayworth feel which makes it timeless.

This collection is due to go on sale at Net-A-Porter any day now and this Carmontelle dress will retail at £1,595.

I predict this collection will sell out as instantly as the first.

    wow, this is GREAT! first, blair waldorf is my style icon (well, and victoria, of course)! having leighton wear VBC on gossip girl will solidify victoria for the younger fashion crowd, i think. great exposure, and leighton does the dress justice in the best way. i love the entire look!

    Leighton looks great. She could’ve skipped the necklace since she’s already wearing a scarf with a brooch, no? But still, she looks lovely.

    I’m happy Blair & Chuck are still going strong. Please, writers, don’t mess this up o.O

    love love love leighton-blair. this is a perfect blair ensamble: headband check, pearls check, fawless natural make-up check.
    i expecially love the streight hair on her, more than the classic blair curlies. she looks like older and so charming, much more than usual.

    Now this is a classic Blair outfit. The last few looks of hers were nice, but they were not ‘Blair’.

    I love her trademark headbands.

    Yes, the headband is a pity but otherwise I’m just in awe of this accessorizing.

    This dress is divine. Not so enthused about the bag and the white shoes (which kind of cheapen it for me) though. Wasn’t quite sure how this collection would work on those not blessed with modelesque heights, but this has gone a long way to dispelling my concerns. She looks fabulous.

    I think this is really beautiful. Such a great vintage flavor to Leighton’s look. I looove the accessories- the scarf and brooch and the pearl jewellery especially are just perfect.

    I think she could have done without the headband and her hair would’ve looked better in an updo but overall just gorgeous!

      I think the headband is such a trademark that they add it to nearly all her looks now.
