Leighton Meester opted for a laidback look on the red carpet for the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, held at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California, on Sunday evening.

The ‘Gossip Girl’ star wore a Christian Cota Spring 2012 ensemble.

A white sleeveless jacket with matching-pleat front shorts were paired with a planktonic-print silk top.

Her long legs were further elongated with nude Brian Atwood ‘Claudia Bis’ suede pumps.

Neil Lane gold jewels and a nude shimmering Jimmy Choo ‘Cybelle’ clutch accessorized her look.

We all love Leighton with dark brunette locks, but it looks like she’s moving back to her more natural hair colour (blonde) and lightening things up for the summer.

An orange lip colour provided the finishing touches.

I love this simple, chic, summery look.
