Leighton Meester In Thom Browne – 2010 Gotham Independent Film Awards

I recently said that Leighton Meester is always interesting to watch on the red carpet, and she proved me right again last night at the 2010 Gotham Independent Film Awards.

This time she gave us menswear wearing a Thom Browne suit.

Wearing this suit is slightly ironic considering Thom Browne just launched his first womenswear collection.

What I like most about this look is that she didn’t try to add a cute accessory in an attempt to make it girlie, and she didn’t add brogues to push the masculine element too far down our throats.

Her Salvatore Ferragamo heels perfected her look and I’m loving the loose tie.

I think Leighton deserves kudos for making unpredictable choices.

Do you agree?

    Yes! I love this look on her. Despite wearing a men’s suit, she looks totally feminine.

  2. mikeijames November 30, 2010 at 12:09 #

    this is the best she’s looked in a while for me. it’s so effortless yet so stylish.

    • Methedrine November 30, 2010 at 15:50 #

      ditto!

  3. Emma November 30, 2010 at 12:09 #

    I really like this look! She pulls it off. Glad she didn’t add brogues.

    Kudos to Leighton.

    I love her style, she always pushes the envelope and gives us something interesting. Ofcourse not everything will be everyones cup of tea but that’s the beauty of it, it’s not generic and it’s always exciting and that’s what fashion is all about.

  5. Ayesha November 30, 2010 at 12:11 #

    she looks amazing,she looks great in everything!

  6. Dorian Gray November 30, 2010 at 12:12 #

    I’d put her in BDOTW too…

    • HM November 30, 2010 at 21:23 #

      I second that motion ;)

  7. Hermione Weasley November 30, 2010 at 12:13 #

    I agree. She looks gorgeous and reaaally elegant. I love it!

  8. Ayesha November 30, 2010 at 12:22 #

    I think this look has a ,How I Met Your Mother’s Robin Scherbatsky feel,i don’t know why,i just get that feel.

  9. fashion-mommy November 30, 2010 at 12:30 #

    hate it – the Charlie Chaplin look is so over. not cute – just bad!

  10. mm November 30, 2010 at 12:49 #

    She is unpredictable on the red carpet, i like this progression

  11. Rachel November 30, 2010 at 12:50 #

    Love it .

  12. Hanna November 30, 2010 at 12:51 #

    The outfit is amazing! I love it. However, it looks like someone has punched both her eyes.

  13. klara November 30, 2010 at 13:16 #

    i agree 100% with everything you said :)

    • Fashion Critic November 30, 2010 at 13:19 #

      thank you :D

    • Tania November 30, 2010 at 18:24 #

      Ditto!

  14. melissa November 30, 2010 at 13:24 #

    BDOTW for sureee

  15. Vidhya November 30, 2010 at 13:27 #

    oh my.. it looks very bad.. the pants seem ill fitting .. esp around the crotch area.. and the length of the trousers and the tie is wrong … anyway its just another awards show.. the outfit will soon be forgotten.. so moving on..

  16. Linda November 30, 2010 at 13:28 #

    Yes, I like this look a lot. I’m not crazy about her makeup though.

  17. gossip_bangkok November 30, 2010 at 14:36 #

    As much I want to love this look, the make up totally threw that out the window.

    • Alina November 30, 2010 at 15:20 #

      I agree.I love the idea of the look but I hate the make-up.

    • Gaber November 30, 2010 at 16:39 #

      That was my first reaction also.
      But after scrolling the page down, covering up her face – the rest of the look has issues also.
      The jacket doesn’t seem to be tailored nicely and neither the pants.

      Still, I ADORE the idea behind the look, so I do hope she repeats it in an improved version – because then it just might be one of my favourite looks of the year.

    • KateS December 2, 2010 at 04:26 #

      Yes! everything else is good, but the sallow, hollow-eyed thing doesn’t work for me.

  18. Crys November 30, 2010 at 15:11 #

    I don´t agree. She looks very ugly this way.

  19. Naomi November 30, 2010 at 15:25 #

    Awesome suit! But I agree with comments above – there’s something off about the make-up.

    • mol November 30, 2010 at 15:40 #

      Ditto – but I find I want to look past that cause I think this outfit looks so cute on Leighton…

      • Naomi December 1, 2010 at 16:19 #

        I agree – I still like this look very much
        (:

  20. Sharon November 30, 2010 at 16:07 #

    I think she looks very cute, but the trousers unfortunatekly make her look a bit bow-legged.

  21. noo November 30, 2010 at 16:41 #

    her outfit is amazing but the make up is zombie as usual

  22. Lisa November 30, 2010 at 16:48 #

    Amazing. So many ladies have attempted the masculine tailoring thing and failed. Leighton should be used as an example of how to do it. I even like the make-up. Adds to the whole ‘i just rolled out of bed and stuck on my boyfriends suit’ thing.

  23. Shawna November 30, 2010 at 17:06 #

    I wish she would do something with that hair.

  24. SarahV November 30, 2010 at 17:24 #

    Yes, I like that she’s not predictable, but the downside is that she doesn’t seem to have a clue what works on her.

  25. Bee November 30, 2010 at 17:37 #

    BDOTW?
    I think so :-) I adore Leighton, she is fabulous, and I really think she deserves to be in the running :D

    • Hannah November 30, 2010 at 19:57 #

      Ditto, she probably wont win, but I think she looks incredible :) !

  26. Tahj November 30, 2010 at 18:31 #

    I love the menswear look, but I don’t like it on her. This would look cute on a young Diane Keaton or even Diane Kruger today. Not sure about this girl. Her last outfit was so trashy, now she’s going far in the other direction.

  27. Amber November 30, 2010 at 19:37 #

    she really pulls this look off!

    • Marvel December 1, 2010 at 00:22 #

      I agree. I think she could have ended up looking really silly but she makes it work

  28. Laura November 30, 2010 at 19:51 #

    Girls got balls for wearing a menswear look. The only thing that’s nagging at me is the folds in the crotch area. Not a good look for a man or a woman.

  29. ~**juDee**~ November 30, 2010 at 19:56 #

    Bee Dee Oh Tee DoubleU…..for sure for sure! I love this girl

  30. Hannah November 30, 2010 at 19:57 #

    I was not too subtly arguing with my freind about this during histroy today (we were meant to be doing work :S) . I LOVE it to every possible extent. Maybe it is that I love leigton too much, but I actually really like this look, i always love a breath of fresh air, and this is really it. She isn’t doing the too obvious women’s power suit, or the boyfriend style thing, jsut looking amazing in a lovely outfit. Have you seen her green clutch? It really completes the look for me.

  31. Nicole November 30, 2010 at 21:25 #

    I love Leighton and I absolutely love this look. She looks so classic and chic. However, I really don’t like her makeup. But her hair looks beautiful!

  32. molly November 30, 2010 at 22:21 #

    I really like this on her, but the girl has got to get those eyebrows waxed!
    They are so distracting!

  33. Amber November 30, 2010 at 22:42 #

    Bad make-up and a poor tailoring job. Those awful pants, just look at the crotch. What a waste of a lot of money!

  34. Allywan December 1, 2010 at 00:45 #

    I don’t know about this. Her face, the makeup….ehhhhh

  35. brandon December 1, 2010 at 02:05 #

    this IS a TB womans suit. he did just launch his womens collection but he does do bespoke and he also has classic suits for women such as this one. the length of the trousers is perfect and so is the crotch area.

    she looks awesome

  36. Sue Jin December 1, 2010 at 02:26 #

    I agree with you too! Your very right. She is unpredictable.. and isn’t that very hard to do for most stars? I like how she threw everyone off by wearing this suit. I don’t love her makeup but her overall look is quite nice! I always look forward to what she wears!

  37. mochababe73 December 1, 2010 at 02:27 #

    This girl has serious style identity issues. Now, she’s channeling Oliver Twist.
    The hem on the pants looks strange.
    I just don’t get this at all.

  38. Jen December 1, 2010 at 03:34 #

    I might like this more if her posture, hair and makeup were better.

  39. Lalitha December 1, 2010 at 05:28 #

    She looks great and yes I applaud her courage in keeping it fresh on the red carpet!

  40. alannah December 1, 2010 at 06:44 #

    pity winona didnt get it so right today.

  41. bb December 1, 2010 at 16:29 #

    I love love LOVE it. She looks so damn cute and the best part is how she accessorized her look.

    Wish she worn her hair up though.

    BDOTW???

  42. Clancy from Dallas December 1, 2010 at 16:46 #

    Kudos are definitely due!! Girlfriend rocked that look! haters are going to hate either way, but i always really appreciate her bold choices!

  43. frenchgirl December 1, 2010 at 19:21 #

    I LOVE it. There will always be haters for such a daring fashionista but she pulls it off so easily and looks gorgeous while doins so. I love that she didn’t force the make up or the accessories. That’s natural beauty right there…

  44. Deborah December 2, 2010 at 13:49 #

    From the neck down she is Johnny deep!!!!!! She looks awful! She cant pull this off, the shirt looks awful. Her hair ridiculous, and her makeup even worst. never seen her look that bad.
