Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

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.

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 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.

Bling Bling Award
You wait weeks for Balmain to hit the red carpet, then two looks arrive in one night.

Leighton Meester also wore Balmain to the 2011 MTV Movie Awards tonight.

The “Gossip Girl” actress rocked a Fall 2011 silver mini dress with mirrors, bugle beads and every bedazzling embellishments known to mankind adorning her mini dress.

Usually the honor of wearing a first look from Balmain runway goes to the likes of Kate Moss, but on this occasion it goes to Leighton.

The normally brunette star (who is naturally blonde) was showcasing some gorgeous lighter locks on this occasion.

Meester never lets me down in the footwear department. Black strappy Pierre Hardy sandals with yet more silver embellishments complete her look.

I’m sensing a radiant glow here, which I didn’t get from her at the Met Gala.

Leighton Meester opted for a sexy LBD on the red carpet tonight at the 2011 Met Gala in New York City this evening.

Her Louis Vuitton strapless dress with cut-out and button details was paired with a black clutch and black shoes from the Louis Vuitton Fall 2011 collection.

I love the sleek back ponytail which allows us to see her Cathy Waterman earrings.

I would’ve preferred sandals to strappy booties, but Leighton always opted for something a bit different at this event.
