Red Carpet Fashion Awards

We can usually count on Leighton Meester to deliver one of the most daring looks at the annual Met Gala, but such was not the case last night at the 2012 Met Gala in New York City.

Leighton arrived looking more like her Upper East Side ‘Gossip Girl’ character, Blair Waldorf, than the risk-taking fashionista that we’re used to, wearing a gold appliqué and nude tulle Marchesa Fall 2012 gown.

The gown is beautiful, in typical Marchesa fashion, but I think it would be better suited to someone like Anne Hathaway.

With her hair pulled back and a wine-coloured lip colour, which was too harsh for her look, the actress added a gold Marchesa clutch to provide the finishing touch.

This is a rare miss for Leighton, both in the dress and makeup department.

‘Gossip Girls’ Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick where in Shanghai, China, on Friday to cut the yellow ribbon to mark the opening of a new Harry Winston salon.

Leighton selected a pretty black Marchesa dress for the occasion.

Her off-the-shoulder lace dress with a grograin waist and voluminous tulle layered skirt was of course teamed with stunning platinum Harry Winston jewels which included a cluster diamond bracelet, diamond river earrings, a feather ring and a straight-line necklace.

Black Christian Louboutin ankle-strap pumps, tumbling glossy curls and a nude lip colour completed her look.

It comes as no surprise that Harry Winston invited Leighton and Ed to open this store since Ed’s ‘Gossip Girl’ character Chuck Bass once proposed to Blair Waldof with a Harry Winston 8 carat engagement ring set in platinum.

Leighton Meester was back on the set of ‘Gossip Girl’ filming with co-star Ed Westwick in New York City yesterday afternoon.

As it was the first day of spring, she was dressed appropriately, wearing a zesty lemon yellow coat over a Peter Som floral-print dress from the Spring 2012 collection.

Her colourful ensemble was teamed with maroon Miu Miu Mary Jane pumps and a matching Stella McCartney cross body bag.

A multi-strand pearl necklace and a simple bun completed her look.

Are you ready for spring, or are you holding on to your tights and winter coats for a while longer?

Leighton Meester attended a screening of ‘The Woman Dress’ directed by Giada Colagrande.

This is the third in a series of short films directed by female filmmakers exploring women’s love affair with Miu Miu.

The ‘Gossip Girl’ actress looked breathtaking wearing a Prada Spring 2012 dress.

Her modified version has a deeper plunge, plus the print on the bodice differs but the pleated skirt, which is in a warm lemon colour, remains the same.

I love her chic updo and her red lips which matches her bag, but I’m not so crazy about the nude pumps.

Although I prefer the Leighton’s modified dress. I would happily swap the nude pumps for those runway strappy sandals.

Many of you disliked Leighton’s last look, so would you consider this an upgrade?

Apart from a sighting on the set of ‘Gossip Girl’, it’s been a while since we saw Leighton Meester.

She thankfully made a return to the red carpet last night at the amfAR New York Gala to kick off Fall 2012 Fashion Week.

Hopefully this means we will see her in the front row at a few shows this week.

The actress, who was showcasing lighter brunette locks, wore a Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2012 dress.

I would call this classic, simple LBD, but the furry panels on the skirt would contradict that.

The styling was kept simple, however, as she carried an LV sequined bag and opted for ankle-strap pumps.

If I could change one thing about this look it would be the shoes.

As the girl with the ‘Best Shoe Closet In Hollywood’, we know she can do better.
