Leighton Meester In Vera Wang – Leighton Meester & Vera Wang Light The Empire State Building Red And White In Honor Of The 5th Annual DKMS Gala

I was very excited to see Leighton Meester back on the red carpet.

The “Gossip Girl” actress and star of the new Vera Wang fragrance joined Vera in New York City today to light up the Empire State Building.

It was illuminated in red and white to raise awareness about DKMS, the world’s largest bone marrow donor center.

Sporting ombre hair Leighton wore a beige Vera Wang Fall 2011 sleeveless top with a Vera Wang Spring 2011 floral print skirt.

Is it me, or does Leighton look taller in this picture?

That skirt is doing wonders for her.

I love the mix of the semi casual top with the formal pencil skirt.

This look isn’t as obvious as it could’ve been, because Leighton likes to mix things up.

Brian Atwood ‘Debra’ toffee slingbacks completed her look.

    She looks really pretty!! She looks so tall, she should wear pencil skirts more often. The top is from the Fall 2011 collection, she/Logan mixes the seasons very well in this look.

    She loves that Cartier watch.

    She does appear taller. Love the look. The hair is a wreck!

    beautiful as always :) oh, i missed her so much!

    Loe this look. She always looks so unique, and she, unlike many stars, let alone young stars, always manages to bring sophistication, which is an attribute I miss form almost any other star’s style. I really love this skirt on her, the shoes are not boring, thankgod, they go perfectly with her outfit, I like the casual edge, the hair is actually ok for me, not her best but I like the casual and youthfullness it gives the outfit. The shirt and th ebracelet, or watch (?) were clever additions.
    More celebrities need to start wearing Vera Wang, I am always so complexed as to why they dont.

    I don’t like the hair and I would have preferred she worn the top on the runway with the skirt. The beige top washed her out.

    This skirt with the slingback shoes really elongates her lower half – very nice….but I’m not so much liking the ombre hair : (

  7. Voguette April 28, 2011 at 18:57 #

    This hair color doesn’t suit her, but yeh, she seems taller

    flawless as always! she just cannot do wrong in my eyes. i like even the hair! vera wang is such an icon. the match between her and leighton is perfection. two of my favourite people. ++++missed leighton so much on the red carpet

    I would like to say I noticed her outfit first but I owuld be lying. her hairis TRAGIC. This hideous ‘ombre’ trend needs to go away asap. It looks trashy and upkept on all women. The pieces are fine. The print is pretty but as a whole nothing exciting.

  10. olivia April 28, 2011 at 19:20 #

    don’t like the hair

  11. Julianne April 28, 2011 at 19:27 #

    I just loved it! I’m in love with the outfit.
    And I loved her hair too, she’s different in it. It makes her look more casual. But this picture is not helping for some reason.

  12. frenchgirl April 28, 2011 at 19:30 #

    She’s amazing. No makeup no fancy hair and yet one of the most beautiful young actresses out there. This style is flawless. I really miss her on the red carpet

    • S April 28, 2011 at 20:57 #

      So true! She’s just naturally stunning <3

  13. CJ April 28, 2011 at 19:45 #

    I have missed her so much. So high fashion and yet so natural. One of the most naturally beautiful women and I love her varied styles and sense of fun.

    Really looking forward to the Wang campaign and seeing more of her. It’s been too long!

      preach:)

  14. Luis Santos April 28, 2011 at 19:56 #

    The shoes ruined all the look.

  15. Emily April 28, 2011 at 20:03 #

    I lovee it. It suits her so much, just simple, not like her attention grabbing co-stars.

  16. Emi April 28, 2011 at 21:14 #

    She looks great but I don’t like the hair. I don’t understand all the attention for Blake Lively, when Leighton is such a stylish girl.

  17. Paulo April 28, 2011 at 21:48 #

    I love this Leighton/Vera collaboration. Hopefully as the face of the new Vera Wang fragrance, we’ll get to see more of Leighton in Vera Wang because quite honestly the red carpet could always use more Vera.

  18. Joy April 28, 2011 at 21:50 #

    Love the outfit, love Leighton, but the hair is atrocious.

  19. carine April 28, 2011 at 22:07 #

    simply outstanding! so different from all the other young actresses. a real class act but she also brings so much effortlessness and cool to the clothes she wears. i do not mind the hair but she can do better. charles—do your homework and stop the ombre nonsense:D

  20. ullis April 28, 2011 at 22:18 #

    god that face <3 undecided on the outfit though..

  21. grace April 28, 2011 at 23:42 #

    chic and refreshing…gotta love leighton meester. she is something else!

  22. Dee April 28, 2011 at 23:47 #

    Im obsessing over her ombre hair. It looks so gorgeous. And she does look a lot taller. This is def BDOTW worthy in my eyes.

  23. Rahel April 29, 2011 at 00:04 #

    The combo looks really good.

  24. KateS April 29, 2011 at 04:56 #

    Wow, that skirt is fantastic on her. Very pretty.

  25. imam April 29, 2011 at 08:39 #

    Gorgeous! The floral pencil skirt looks so pretty on her. The nude blouse and the pumps make her classy…

  26. Ewww April 29, 2011 at 19:10 #

  27. Alina April 30, 2011 at 07:33 #
