On The Set Of Gossip Girl With Leighton Meester Wearing Stella McCartney

It looks like it was a hard first day back at the office for ‘Gossip Girl’ actress Leighton Meester, who was spotted shooting scenes for the hit show in Manhattan today.

The brunette beauty had to do several scenes running in Brian Atwood ‘Maniac’ pumps. She stopped to take the pressure off before finally opting for flip flops between scenes.

Her orange pumps worked perfectly with her citrus print Stella McCartney Spring 2011 skirt, which was paired with a bright yellow ruffled top.

An orange Riki Rosetta tote completed ‘Blair Waldorf’s’ look.

I want this look for my closet. I can almost taste the citrus flavours.

Who Wore Elie Saab Better? Leighton Meester or Astrid Munoz

Leighton Meester stole our hearts when she took to the red carpet to attend the 14th Annual Hollywood Awards Gala in this stunning Elie Saab tulle ruffle dress powder blue dress back in October, which is from the Spring 2011 collection.

The actress looked incredible in her tulle cocktail dress which features subtle sequin detailing and a thin satin ribbon tied into a delicate bow around the waist. She was the first celebrity to wear a look from this beautiful collection.

Leighton played up the sweetness of the dress by pairing it with matching baby blue suede heels from the same collection plus a glitter-embellished Jimmy Choo ‘Candy’ clutch.

She wore her hair in a pretty up-do with a few strands of loose curls left out and kept her makeup soft, wearing a coral shade of lipstick.

Astrid Munoz wore the same dress to attend the ELLE Awards 25th Anniversary in Madrid, Spain last night.

The Puerto-Rican model took a decidedly different approach, wearing her hair in a centre-part bun and pairing the dress with electric blue Charlotte Olympia ‘Paloma’ platform pumps and an oversized cocktail ring and statement earrings.

It’s hard to top Leighton in this dress considering how lovely she looks, but she wins for me because I think Astrid’s hairstyle is too severe for such a sweet dress and definitely think her shoes were the too stark in contrast to her soft delicate dress.

Leighton worked this pretty, lady-like look perfectly and therefore wins by a long mile.

Sidewalk Style: Leighton Meester’s Carven Dress, YSL Tote & Alexandre Birman Sandals

Leighton Meester was spotted leaving the Ritz-Carlton hotel in New York City after a day of press junkets for her new movie, “Monte Carlo.”

Katie Cassidy and Selena Gomez attended the New York screening recently, so it’s great to see Leighton promoting this movie too.

The actress wore a Carven off-the-shoulder printed dress which hugs her in all the right places.

She accessorized her look with a tan elasticated belt, a YSL Chyc Cabas tote and Alexandre Birman strappy sandals.

The movie is out on Friday, so I hope we get to see Leighton promoting this movie again.

I love the new bangs and darker hair colour.

The new hairstyle is for the latest movie she’s working on, “I Hate You, Dad”.

Herbal Essences hair care is really working for her.

Here is a close up of Leighton’s Alexandre Birman sandals in 4 different colours.

Who Wore Giambattista Valli Better? Leighton Meester or Ludivine Sagnier

Leighton Meester was the first celebrity to snap up a look from Giambattista Valli’s Spring 2011 collection when she wore this dress to the 27th Annual Night of Stars in New York back in October.

Leighton’s version of the draped, silk crepe dress features a two-tone colour block in nude and white, instead of the runway version of nude and orange.

The actress paired her look with the vintage Van Cleef & Arpels jewels.

She completed her look with a gold clutch, navy blue satin pumps and pink lipgloss.

French actress Ludivine Sagnier opted to wear the runway version of the dress when she attended a screening of her movie “The Devil’s Double” earlier this week in Los Angeles.

She chose to accessorize with a pair of strappy nude heels and a single gold bracelet and wear her hair down in loose waves. She also added gold eyeshadow to her look.

Whilst Leighton styled this look perfectly, I’m not a fan of her shoe choice.

Ludivine’s was more complementary but her overall grooming lets her down, so Leighton wins for me.

Leighton Meester In Vera Wang – ‘Vera Wang Lovestruck’ Harrods Launch

Leighton Meester was in Harrods, not Debenhams, to launch the new ‘Vera Wang Lovestruck’ fragrance in London today.

The “Gossip Girl” star and face of the Vera Wang fragrance was glowing at the launch wearing Vera Wang.

Her Fall 2011 rose pleated sleeveless blouse was paired with leather Pre-Fall 2011 pants.

Dannijo jewels and Brian Atwood ‘Rina’ sandals completed her look.

Am I the only one who thinks Leighton looks absolutely adorable here?

I don’t think I’ve seen her look more radiant.

Is it the lighter hair colour or her tan?

Whatever it is, it’s working for her.
