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.

Leighton Meester In Balmain – 2011 MTV Movie Awards

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 In Louis Vuitton – 2011 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.

Leighton Meester In Vera Wang – DKMS’ 5th Annual Gala

Leighton Meester attended the DKMS’ 5th Annual Gala in New York City last night.

She wore her second Vera Wang look of the day.

This tobacco silk one shoulder dress with draped shoulder is from the Pre-Fall 2011 collection.

Her shortened dress was paired with Brian Atwood ‘Debra’ pumps, Cathy Waterman jewels and Jimmy Choo ‘Tube’ clutch.

I really love this look. Vera Wang dresses give her an amazing silhouette, but I don’t love the shoes.

Leighton has the most interesting and varied shoe collections in Hollywood, but on this occasion I find them too stark in contrast with the rest of her look.

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.
