Leighton Meester In Vionnet – 2011 People’s Choice Awards

Joint Best Dressed & Stand-Out Award
I can imagine that this will be the marmite look of the 2011 People’s Choice Awards.

You’ll either love it or hate it.

As usual Leighton Meester was the only one to give us something totally different on the red carpet.

No ruffles, no gowns, no minis, no sequins, just a laid-back unpretentious Vionnet Spring 2011 grey ensemble with a floral embroidered print.

Leighton paired her dress with lavender Brian Atwood ‘Elle’ heels and gorgeous orange Cathy Waterman statement earrings.

I love this refreshing look and I’m already excited to see what she wears next.

So. Do you love it or hate it?

    Love it!!!
    The earrings are amazing!
    She has the attitude (and the age) for this!

    • Klara January 6, 2011 at 15:39 #

    • Kathy January 7, 2011 at 16:42 #

      I completely agree!

      love it <3

  4. Alina January 6, 2011 at 15:05 #

    I’m on the love side. I think it is simply gorgeous.

  5. Methedrine January 6, 2011 at 15:05 #

    she looks cute

  6. Hisadora January 6, 2011 at 15:05 #

    Love it. Those earrings were just PERFECT acessories.

  7. Lou January 6, 2011 at 15:05 #

    Like the look. But – the makeup makes her eyes look small and puffy.

  8. Carol January 6, 2011 at 15:05 #

    Ugh. What a dreadful mess.

    • mm January 6, 2011 at 15:09 #

      i agree, hate it, and the drop earrings with it

  9. Emma January 6, 2011 at 15:06 #

    I love this look and the earrings are amazing!

    Leighton was on Leno yesterday wearing a dress from Versace’s Resort 2011 collection. I wold love to hear what you think about that look.

  10. Mary January 6, 2011 at 15:07 #

    I don’t hate it nor love it… I ADORE it!!
    This dress looks so perky and fun :D I’m a bit dissapointed on the shoe choice, but I can easily skip that part and start talking about how much I love Leighton for always bringing something different to the red carpet. It is so refreshing to see something different after all this pictures featuring similar designers.
    My only minus is the make up, but I always find Leighton ‘s make up weird, so…

  11. summer January 6, 2011 at 15:07 #

    ı love it,she’s wonderful
    amazing shoes and amazing earrings

  12. Adela January 6, 2011 at 15:07 #

    I love it! It suits her perfectly :)

  13. Vidhya January 6, 2011 at 15:07 #

    bdotw .. absolutely … wow

  14. Joy January 6, 2011 at 15:09 #

    I think it’s absolutely perfect! Love it so much!

  15. Tania (itsnishy) January 6, 2011 at 15:11 #

    LOVE IT! I’d wear this dress anytime. Leighton looks so pretty!

  16. Samm January 6, 2011 at 15:12 #

    Cute&casual for a less glam awards show.

    Perfect choice Leighton Meester

  17. Ali January 6, 2011 at 15:13 #

    Not feeling this look I’m afraid, have seen her look far more appealing, this looks like casual Summer wear to me….

    • heather January 6, 2011 at 16:16 #

      Agree-still way too casual for any kind of awards show. Looks more like she happened to be in the neighborhood and decided to drop in. Make-up, shoes and earrings push this into ‘Hate it’ for me. Dress looks to be grey sweatshirt material. She doesn’t have to wear a gown, but dressing up a sweatshirt doesn’t cut it.

  18. ellen January 6, 2011 at 15:14 #

    love it! i wish she had the bow tho..:)

    • Kaz January 6, 2011 at 22:33 #

      Me too! I love it but think that bow would have added a wonderful and playful final touch…

  19. Thaís January 6, 2011 at 15:14 #

    Love, love, love.
    So cute!

  20. Sarah January 6, 2011 at 15:15 #

    I’m not a huge fan of this look. It’s a little too girlish for my classic tastes.

    Thanks so much for this site! I love it! I’ve posted some of my favourite looks on my own site, giving =credit back here, of course!


  21. Natalie January 6, 2011 at 15:15 #

    Her make-up is amazing and the earrings too but I’m still torn about the dress. It’s adorable but I don’t know if it’s ‘her’.

  22. D January 6, 2011 at 15:17 #

    I love the earrings :) perhaps a pair of earring matching shoes??

  23. Marvel January 6, 2011 at 15:17 #

    It looks better on the model. Grey heels?!?

  24. CreoleLady January 6, 2011 at 15:19 #

    I like. Would love if the shoes were not pumps (although thankfully lavender and not black).

  25. Francesca January 6, 2011 at 15:20 #

    Amazing! I’d wear this dress myself.

  26. Jessica January 6, 2011 at 15:24 #

    I love it! It is such a refreshing look !

  27. Katey January 6, 2011 at 15:27 #

    I ‘m totally in love with this look. She’s simply beautiful int this dress.

  28. justme January 6, 2011 at 15:29 #

    Badly applied make-up aside, I love it. It’s cute but not sugary.

  29. Jessi January 6, 2011 at 15:29 #

    Love it! Super fresh. :)

  30. Alex January 6, 2011 at 15:29 #

    LOVE IT.
    I just love Leighton for always bringing something new and fresh. This dress is lovely and it looks lovely on her. Just like you FC I cannot wait to see what she’ll bring us in 2011 because she’s always interesting and unpredictable. To be 100% fair, I think make up could be a little bit lighter but other than that it’s one of my favourites at ths event.

    • Dorian Gray January 6, 2011 at 23:36 #

      I saw her in Versace Cruise Collection 2011 @Jay Leno Show and she was quite new and fresh :-)

  31. Nat January 6, 2011 at 15:34 #

    Hate it!!! She looks like is going to the beach!

  32. Suz January 6, 2011 at 15:43 #

    I have to admit that I usually don’t like Leighton (don’t hate me, FC!), but I do really like this dress. My only complaints are that I think it may be a little too long on her, and maybe a touch on the too casual side for this event.

    • Fashion Critic January 6, 2011 at 16:14 #

      I don’t hate you ;)

      For the Globes this would’ve been a no no, but i think it works for this event

    • Linda January 7, 2011 at 02:54 #

      Like, Suz, I usually don’t like her style, but this dress is great. .

  33. Bethany January 6, 2011 at 15:45 #

    Would have loved it if the heading was “Runway to Sidewalk”. It looks like something I’d go shopping in. Hate it for this occasion. I may never understand the affection for Leighton’s choices.

  34. mochababe73 January 6, 2011 at 15:46 #

    Hate it on her and the model.
    It looks like a long, grey t-shirt with DIY appliques. For me it screams Hobby Lobby craft project.

    • CreoleLady January 8, 2011 at 09:18 #

      LOL, Hobby Lobby craft project. Although I like the dress, I get where you’re coming from. It just tickles me that a Vionnet can look like a DIY job – at multiple times the cost, rotfl.

  35. Hannah January 6, 2011 at 15:48 #

    I LOVE her! Easily the best dressed of all the GG girls, and probably the bes dresed of young hollywood. I love this dress, it is almost as amazing as her louis V (i hope) look from the past peoples choce awards, which made BDOTY. I LOVe it BDOTW! She is gorgeous, her earrings are painfully beautiful.

  36. Kaylie January 6, 2011 at 15:53 #

    I think she looks great in the dress, but not for an awards show. I know People’s Choice isn’t as formal as other awards shows, but this look would be better for a summertime shopping spree or a picnic in a park.

  37. Hermione Weasley January 6, 2011 at 16:04 #

    I love it! And even if some people say she was dressed down for the event, she didn’t walk the blue carpet or win anything, she was on stage for like… 10 seconds, lol. This is fantastic. Make-up & hair are just flawless!

  38. magda January 6, 2011 at 16:08 #

    me likey

  39. Alyazia January 6, 2011 at 16:10 #


  40. Kelly January 6, 2011 at 16:14 #

    Love it. Love her. I hope she keeps being unique as opposed to Boobs Legsly.

  41. razzmatazz January 6, 2011 at 16:15 #

    I love the falling leaves detail

  42. Jones19 January 6, 2011 at 16:20 #

    I don’t love it or hate it actually, it’s just okay for me. Her eyebrows need some serious tweezing though.

  43. summer January 6, 2011 at 16:22 #

    also we want to see what she wears jay leno

  44. Phie January 6, 2011 at 16:23 #

    Suuuuch a cute dress!! Love it!


  45. Rebeca January 6, 2011 at 16:25 #


  46. mol January 6, 2011 at 16:28 #

    I love Leighton’s hair and earrings with this cute outfit, which is just a little baggy on her around the waist – when she presented with Minka it looked like she had a third saggy boob thing going on…..Still, I love the way she surprises me….

  47. Jane January 6, 2011 at 16:38 #

    I love the dress – Leighton looks wonderful in it. Personally, I wish she had worn the cute bow belt with it too but I understand that perhaps she did not want to copy the look from the way it was presented,

  48. MatteaAM January 6, 2011 at 16:49 #

    Aaaah! I was waiting for this.
    I saw this couple of hours ago and I instantly fell in love with it. And I literally said: ‘Oh, Fashion Critic is going to love it!’ :)
    I think she looks amazing and she is rapidly becoming my girl crush! :D

    • Fashion Critic January 6, 2011 at 17:04 #

      you were right :D I do x

  49. sunniee January 6, 2011 at 17:03 #

    Leighton is pretty!! <33 :)) but her hair…………………………………. um… do YOU like it??

  50. Megan January 6, 2011 at 17:08 #

    LOVE IT!!! I would love that in my closet.

  51. Julianne January 6, 2011 at 17:09 #

    I absolutely LOVE IT.

  52. HM January 6, 2011 at 17:31 #

    LOVE IT!!!

    She has always had amazing fashion sense (sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn’t) but this is one of those rare moments where you can see she is unpretentious and her look translates well!

    KUDOS LEIGHTON…keep it up for the whole of 2011 ;)

  53. Amber January 6, 2011 at 18:13 #

    hate it.

  54. melina January 6, 2011 at 18:25 #

    I love it. It’s the first time I see a red carpet look and I can say that I would wear this dress. I don’t know maybe it means she was underdressed? It’s very laid back and different. Kudos.
    Her make up is horrible, though.

  55. Laura January 6, 2011 at 18:56 #

    LOVE IT!

  56. Laura January 6, 2011 at 20:00 #

    Cute, fun, and flirty. Also edgy in a way that Leighton’s not usually edgy. Love it!

  57. Luiza January 6, 2011 at 20:11 #

    Love it! and the earrings were the perfect final touch!

  58. Dorian Gray January 6, 2011 at 20:34 #

    Love her here more than @Jay Leno Show in Versace Cruise 2011 (http://www.nbc.com/the-tonight-show/video/leighton-meester/1268303). Beautiful earrings too.

  59. Amy January 6, 2011 at 21:03 #

    ’tis gorgeous!!! I feel as if it should be shorter, but maybe that’s just me. It’s a pitter Kristen STewart wouldn’t ever wea anything like this… in that case it WOULD be shorter.

  60. anna January 6, 2011 at 21:33 #

    i love it!
    everything here is perfect! the earrings, the hair, the dress.
    she loves statement shoes, but this time she opted a “basic” pair. not bad!

  61. eimear January 6, 2011 at 21:39 #

    hate it! It looks kinda naff with the grey material, and really childish and tacky with the flowers.

  62. Elise January 6, 2011 at 22:11 #

    I totally love it, the dress is very unique !

  63. jen January 6, 2011 at 22:19 #

    i wish she had kept the bow. if i hadnt seen the way model wearing it, i would have said its awesome, but now it feels smth is missing. still nice tho

    • Chaufforest January 7, 2011 at 12:32 #

      Yip same here…on Leighton it looks like and oversize t-shirt

  64. nicole January 6, 2011 at 22:33 #

    i love it!! first pic i saw of her i had a feeling you would like it too. the makeup is flawless too.

  65. Gaber January 7, 2011 at 00:18 #

    The dress is amazing, but I really don’t like it on Leighton.
    The fit makes this dress and it’s not doing here any favours.
    Too bad.

  66. Carolina January 7, 2011 at 01:29 #

    Hate it. It looks so cheap.
    (the model is holding her breast??)

    • Kathy January 7, 2011 at 16:43 #

      yeah, WHY is the model holding her breast like that???

  67. Sophie January 7, 2011 at 02:54 #

    I reaaaaaaaaaaaly dont like it. Honestly I think Emma wears V better. :(

  68. Saara January 7, 2011 at 07:14 #

    It’s cute and fresh. I love the hair and the earrings. I also love the way she tied the belt as opposed to the model’s bow. I would have loved to see some other shoes, though, yellow or orange sandals for example.

  69. b January 7, 2011 at 08:24 #

    I love it. Would love it much more with different shoes.

    Have to give it to her to bring something interesting. The others are just plain boring at the event.

  70. Emi January 7, 2011 at 10:10 #

    I LOVE IT!!! I love Vionnet, even if this dress is quite different from the usual dresses of the brand. It’s so cute, so fresh and original. The only thing that doesn’t convince me it’s her make up. This is a great choice, I’m so tired of all those very young girls dressed like they were 50 years old, with tons of gold, jewellery and black pumps.

  71. Ayesha January 7, 2011 at 10:22 #

    i don’t hate it but i wish she had opted for the same heels as on the model.

  72. Louise January 7, 2011 at 10:47 #

    Love it. I would totally wear this dress. She looks gorgeous.

  73. Chaufforest January 7, 2011 at 12:31 #

    I love this Girl but i jsut personally think that the model is displaying this gown much better.

  74. asherlev1 January 7, 2011 at 12:49 #

    I just wish her earrings had matched her dress better. Yes, that reallly does bother me a lot. Or maybe if that bright pink flower on her dress went away. The color palette is a bit much for my tastes.

  75. mpho regoeng January 7, 2011 at 14:52 #

    love love love – would wear it myself

  76. bianca January 7, 2011 at 21:20 #

    kinda’ like it..would have preffered the dress shorter, like the model’s

  77. Caitlin January 9, 2011 at 09:49 #

    Considering the fashion and styling alone, Leighton is always interesting and stands out among the Hollywood crowd. The thing is, I think the main reason she tries so hard with her clothes is because she is decidedly unremarklable in almost all other aspects. The fact is, she is not eccentric or beautiful enough to truly pull this off.
