Fashion’s Night Out: The Show – Leighton Meester In Versus

More than 1,500 guests viewed the largest public fashion show in New York City’s history with “Fashion’s Night Out: The Show” at Lincoln Center last night.

The event was held as part of the run-up to Fashion’s Night Out on Friday, and New York Fashion Week which starts tomorrow.

Leighton Meester was one of the many celebrity guests who attended this event.

I was glad to see the “Gossip Girl” actress giving us edgy without any ridiculousness we’ve seen in the past.

Her Versus Fall 2010 blue bustier dress with cut-out details is super sexy, vibrant and fitting for this celebration of fashion.

She paired her dress with Christian Louboutin Venus Orlato 140 ankle boots and a jeweled clutch.

I’ve never been a fan of Leighton’s hair on the set of GG, so I’m really liking the rich colour and the volume for this occasion.

    The only thing missing here is that the bag should be swinging, than the hooker look would be complete.

  3. Ayesha September 9, 2010 at 12:21 #

    she definitely pulled off this look,love it all.
    her hair is looking awesome!!

    I think Leighton does a stellar job of making this rather complicated little number work, very sexy but not trashy – I like it all, even the shoes.

  5. Lalitha September 9, 2010 at 07:07 #

    I do not like this dress at all.

    This dress would look good on Rihanna. It doesn’t mean that I like the dress because I don’t.
    Leighton is not edgy enough to wear this dress. It’s too S&M.
    You’re right about her hair. It’s beautiful. Maybe Blake can get the number of her hair stylist.

    I like the dress! I think she pulls it off without making it trashy at all. Hate the boots though.

  8. Amber September 8, 2010 at 22:23 #

    looks quite tacky to me.

    Don’t like this shoes, but overall stunning look

  11. anastacia September 8, 2010 at 19:50 #

    I like this look! but hate this shoes((

  12. jenny September 8, 2010 at 19:43 #

    she looks gorgeous

  13. Hannah September 8, 2010 at 18:41 #

    I ador ethis look, besides the shoes, and her hair is rightly full and glossy, since she is the faceof herbal essences. I also lov ethat sh emodifiedthe dress, having two strips at the top, not three, which I think would have looked too busy.

  14. justme September 8, 2010 at 17:55 #

    I love the hair, the make-up, the cltuch, the shoes (boy, I heart those boots) but that dress? Sorry Leighton but no. NO!

  15. Brooke September 8, 2010 at 16:34 #

    I actually like this look. Finally, Leighton has the right hair and makeup people. Some of her looks during her ‘pop star wannabe’ days were really hard to look at.

  16. sara September 8, 2010 at 15:13 #

    i’m not sure if i like the dress or not it seems a bit cheap, but it suits her so well!…about the face and the hair, she is very very beatiful!

  17. Shruti September 8, 2010 at 15:02 #

    Ehehehehehehehehehe….this is NOT pretty 😛

  18. Kaz September 8, 2010 at 13:59 #

    I was wondering what to say about this one… but I think I’ll just quote my boyfriend: “she looks hot in a slutty kind of way”!

  19. dressaddict September 8, 2010 at 13:32 #

    Sorry, but for me it looks tacky and cheap. Versus you say? Hmmmm…

  20. miwa September 8, 2010 at 13:30 #

    She looks stunning.

  21. allie September 8, 2010 at 13:16 #

    beautiful colour….
    I love this VERSUS dress…

  22. Marvel September 8, 2010 at 12:57 #

    I dont like this look at all. Its far too trashy for her and I would have thought that if she wanted to do ‘trashy’ she wouldnt have gone this way about it. Although I do like her hair here, she should have scrapped it back to show the cut out details. A big disappointment.

  23. Sam September 8, 2010 at 12:56 #

    She looks gorgeous. Love it from head to toe.

  24. june September 8, 2010 at 12:56 #

    i can’t say i like this dress – it’s too fussy for me, but i love this colour on her, and i love, love the dark hair

  25. alannah September 8, 2010 at 12:38 #

    hot hot hot hot hot hot hot.

  26. seggie September 8, 2010 at 12:36 #

    I can’t wait to see your post on Blake Lively looking beautiful in Marchesa!!!
    Don’t like Leighton’s dress but she looks cute

  27. Dorian Gray September 8, 2010 at 12:17 #

    I really like her here but this seems to be more a Blake Lively dress than a Meester look.

  28. Alina September 8, 2010 at 12:11 #

    I LOVE IT! It’s fresh,young,sexy,bold.

    “I was glad to see the “Gossip Girl” actress giving us edgy without any ridiculousness we’ve seen in the past.” – that’s what I first thought when I saw the photos ; I was like “Do you see you can?”

      Great minds think alike 😉

  29. ale September 8, 2010 at 12:11 #

    this is all kinds of awesome! the girl is FIERCE and has the attitude this dress without making it cheap. sometime it pays off to choose the risky path! i LOVE it!!!!!!!!!

  30. Vidhya September 8, 2010 at 12:10 #

    i cant believe im saying this abt a versus.. but the overall look is cheap and wrinkly .. if a contestant made this in project runway, he wud b questioned for his “taste level” .. the shoes , bag and bracelet all match the hideous look..

    • Gretta September 9, 2010 at 01:09 #

      Couldn’t agree more. Horrendous dress. Can’t decide if it’s more prostitute chic or pole dancer couture…

      • KateS September 9, 2010 at 05:33 #

        My dilemma exactly!

  31. Laura September 8, 2010 at 12:04 #

    Thanks for that! She looks absolutely amazing. Definitely the best dressed of the night!

  32. Vanessa September 8, 2010 at 12:04 #

    First I didn’t like her dress, after I totally changed my opinion. She looks fabulous, her hair was perfect and the make up is simple e classy. Her shoes are awesome and I love the handbag.
