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.
