After arriving late at the Met Gala on Monday night, Leighton Meester arrived in Madrid today to promote Herbal Essences as she’s their new brand ambassador.

The “Gossip Girl” actress looked really pretty wearing a Hervé Léger by Max Azria Spring 2010 dress.

Her dress is so cute, but those Pierre Hardy gold shoes are all kinds of ugly.

The runway dress has gold panels, but Leighton’s doesn’t so the heels just stand out rather than complement.

It looks like she maybe reverting back to her natural blonde colour, but I much prefer her as a brunette.
