Leighton Meester In Michael Kors – “The Roommate” LA Premiere


LOVE, Love, love.

In case you hadn’t noticed I’ve developed a huge girl crush on Leighton Meester over the past couple of months.

She commands my attention on the red carpet by taking ownership of everything she wears. She mixes things up and always looks flawless.

Last night she attended the LA Premiere of her latest movie, “The Roommate” looking sensational wearing a Michael Kors long dress from the Pre-Fall 2011 collection.

Her black chiffon jersey dress with a leather cut out bodice looks super hot on Leighton without being overtly sexy.

She’s working it way better than the model.

With her super sleek straight ombre hair and Brian Atwood ‘Helena’ pumps, Leighton opted to go sans jewelry.

We have our first BDOTW contender.

    I agree with you- it looks totally flat and lifeless on the model (or at least that picture) but it has a lot of zing on her.

    I love Leighton Meester, which is evident by how i write lon gugshing essays almost everytime she goes onto the red carpet, but this is beyond. She knows how to wear a dress, and not try too hard, or give too much, but pull it off to perfection, and as you said, command attention. I love simple dresses when they ar done right. She is easily my star to watch this year, and this has to be one of, if not my actual favourite dress of the year so far.

    I love her because a) you can tell she loves fashion b) her style is not dictated by trends c) she wears what she feels good in (you can tell!) c) she makes it look so easy

    Sigh. Girl crush for me too.

    • b January 25, 2011 at 04:37 #

      Same for me.

      She always make it look so effortless. This is why I like her style so much.

    now this is how you do sexy AND chic…no need to offer up too much skin or let the girls spill out, she looks super sexy and modern. Love it and definitely a contender for BDOTW.

  5. BlackSwan January 24, 2011 at 17:25 #

    How shocking LM is already a BDOTW contender. *YAWN* When is she not? There is nothing fresh or new about this look. She bores me to no end. I can’t wait for a week where I don’t have to see her face or tasteless fashion choices.

  6. anna January 24, 2011 at 17:18 #


    it’s a modern-young-sexy-elegant look!
    thumbs up for leighton!

  7. Rahel January 24, 2011 at 17:08 #

    Michael Kors rocks and the dress emphasizes Leighton’s beautiful figure.

  8. Anita January 24, 2011 at 17:08 #

    This is the 1st time I can truly say I LOVE everything about Leighton Meesters look. Its got the edge without it being a forced “I’m not blair” statement – plus I love her hair like this. Perfection!

  9. Carrie January 24, 2011 at 16:48 #

    I’ve been obsessed with her since I started watching Gossip Girl, but there have definitely been some looks where I’ve been disappointed. THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM! I’m glad she’s earning her reputation as a phenomenon. what a freaking beauty.

  10. nicole January 24, 2011 at 16:38 #

    love love love. so sleek its amazing.

  11. HM January 24, 2011 at 16:37 #

    I have always loved Leighton’s red carpet style but this is just amazing!!! SLEEK & SEXY…BDOTW indeed!

  12. mol January 24, 2011 at 16:30 #

    I can only echo the love……perfection!

  13. Carolina January 24, 2011 at 16:09 #

    I’m team Blake, but Leighton does look hot and pretty. She really has developed a style for herself, she is edgy without looking try-hard.

  14. Ethne Blist January 24, 2011 at 15:57 #

    With all due respect to Ms. Meester, I do not understand the hysterical hype over her. She is just an actress on a fashionable popular TV show. I know she is stylish, but… I only comment here because I love this site and I love fashion.

    • b January 25, 2011 at 04:17 #

      OK she’s on a popular fashion-oriented show and she’s stylish.

      What more could we ask for to get excited about her really?

  15. Ariel January 24, 2011 at 15:52 #

    Love it. She makes the dress look sexier!

  16. ale January 24, 2011 at 15:46 #

    outstanding outfit! she always brings something her!!!!!

  17. dee January 24, 2011 at 15:16 #

    I really like this look.

  18. Xorco January 24, 2011 at 15:05 #

    I have to say, she looks sensational. I scroll down the page and I just stay focusing on her for a minutue.. it was flawless and really outstanding….

  19. Emma January 24, 2011 at 14:44 #

    WOW, just wow. Leighton looks awesome. Sexy, sleek minimalism. She totally owns the look!

    Your girl crush on Leighton is totally understandable FC.

    This is gonna be a hard look to top for me this week

  20. luiza January 24, 2011 at 14:22 #

    STUNNING. Love it as much as i can.

  21. Linda January 24, 2011 at 14:18 #

    I’m the odd one out again, but this look is okay but doesn’t blow me away. I have nothing against Meester, but she doesn’t generate any excitement for me.

    • Matthew January 29, 2011 at 21:24 #

      I completely agree! The dress is boring and her hair is awful! I really don’t like Leighton’s style…Sorry FC!

  22. D January 24, 2011 at 14:12 #

    love also 🙂

    love the hair and makeup too

  23. cindy January 24, 2011 at 14:12 #

    I can’t believe that she made me like ombre hair! Wow! Magnifique! Just simple perfection from head to toe!

  24. sweetjess98 January 24, 2011 at 14:11 #

    WOW… amazing.
    i agree… she works it better than the model.

  25. Amanda January 24, 2011 at 13:50 #

    Wonderful. Fantastic, I’m drooling! BDOTW for sure!

  26. T. January 24, 2011 at 13:39 #

    This is…PERFECTION!

  27. justme January 24, 2011 at 13:21 #

    And I can happily continue to stan for her *sigh*
    She definitely rocks it way better than the model whose boob area just looks super awkward.
    But the things I love the most are the straight hair (she rarely has it this way which is a shame because it’s better than the soft curls on her imo) and the make up.

  28. CreoleLady January 24, 2011 at 13:18 #

    I adore Michael Kors and Leighton does this dress justice. Love the styling and her increasing sure-footedness on the red carpet. Brava.

  29. Elaine January 24, 2011 at 13:17 #

    Wow…. I thought exactly the same when I seen this – LOVE LOVE LOVE!

    Definately a BDOTW contender – for me, its gonna be hard for anyone to top this…

    (also she does look 10 times better in it than the model…)

    my jaw is on the floor and i’m drooling 🙂

  32. Mahima January 24, 2011 at 13:02 #

    ohmygod. amazing. amazing.
    i love how she gives us something new everytime.

  33. b January 24, 2011 at 12:53 #

    She’s freaking gorgeous. You guys have to see her closeup. I would definitely kill for her skin.

    And she totally nails it on this dress. Super sexy but still classy at the same time.

    Love <3

  34. Fola January 24, 2011 at 12:46 #

    Love, love, love it!

  35. GirlOne January 24, 2011 at 12:45 #

    Love, love, love, too!!

  36. Vidhya January 24, 2011 at 12:32 #

    i would only think what a genius michael kors is.. for designing a plain black dress which could b so sexy and hot.. and Prefall 2011??? already???

  37. nadia January 24, 2011 at 12:12 #

    DASHING LIKE ALWAYS !! she has a way of always blowing my mind

  38. Julia January 24, 2011 at 12:07 #


  39. Angie Smith January 24, 2011 at 11:59 #

    Love this look, black doesn’t have to be boring and predictable on the red carpet. The waist detail is so on trend for SS11 and the leather bust detail reflects just enough light to lift the colour !! Gorgeous x

  40. carine January 24, 2011 at 11:43 #

    minimal glam! she is unbelievable. i really cannot think of someone more daring on the red carpet than leighton meester at this point. every dress she wears is so refreshing and risky. i hope she continues the good choices..because we all know she likes too go a little bit “edgy”sometimes…and the results are nor pleasant. love this new direction and leighton’s boldness is starting to pay off!

  41. Marvel January 24, 2011 at 11:37 #

    She looks so tall in all of the pictures. She looks nice and deserves to be in the BDOTW pics.

    • mm January 24, 2011 at 14:29 #

      I agree. Very sexy look for her too

  42. Hermione Weasley January 24, 2011 at 11:31 #

    FLAWLESS. She looks a futuristic Greek goddess. I’m completely in love with this.

  43. Claire January 24, 2011 at 11:27 #

    Wow…this is how to wear a black dress without looking boring! She looks absolutely gorgeous!

  44. Terry January 24, 2011 at 11:26 #

    Love this dress on her! It was perfectly styled, so as to emphasize its minimal vibe.

  45. summer January 24, 2011 at 11:26 #

    she is amazing

  46. Incroyable January 24, 2011 at 11:23 #

    I love it and I love her! I totally believe she doesn’t get the style credit she deserves. And I would prefer if she did sumting different with her hair, an updo would work better with this dress.

  47. Vicky January 24, 2011 at 11:18 #

    “Sexy sleek” springs to mind as this is one of the best outfits I’ve seen her in!
    Well done!

  48. SydneyCheekyChic January 24, 2011 at 11:17 #

    Lately i’ve been feeling that the leighton love on this website (by other readers) have been overrated..BUT i do agree she is looking SMOKING hot here!

  49. geisha January 24, 2011 at 11:17 #

    BEAUTIFUL. she’s absolutely stunning. like a goddess

  50. Erin January 24, 2011 at 11:14 #

    That is sensational!
    Wow wow wow.
    The model barely gets a glimpse – my eyes are drawn right back to Leighton. Spot on!

    • Jones19 January 25, 2011 at 16:16 #

      Same here. Leighton is shutting it down here!
