For a short while we thought we’d lost Leighton Meester to the ‘crazy/try hard’ style gods.

At times her red carpet looks felt like she was constantly reminding us that she was not ‘Blair Waldorf’.

Yes, Leighton we always knew you were not the same person.

Once she let that go we could start to enjoy her choices again.

Leighton is all about sexy sophistication and we’ve recently seen her wearing an array of cute cocktail dresses and she even started an overnight menswear trend.

Thankfully her red carpet choices are never boring even though some have been controversial.

I also found it refreshing that she has an enviable shoe collection with very few black pumps and Brian Atwood heels in sight.
