Leighton Meester Starts A Menswear Red Carpet Trend

On Monday night Leighton Meester wore a Thom Browne suit on the red carpet to the 2010 Gotham Independent Film Awards.

By Tuesday night many other celebrities had followed suit….see what I did there.

Stylish celebrities including Jessica Alba, Lara Bingle and Winona Ryder were all spotted on the red carpet wearing menswear instead of pretty dress.

The looks ranged from shirtless in Dolce & Gabbana for Jessica, who paired her look with sexy studded Christian Louboutin Pigalle studded pumps and an ivory Christian Louboutin Loulou clutch.

Lara opted to wear a white shirt and black velvet ribbon neck-tie with her peg-legged suit.

Gothic Winona kept her look black on black on black on black.

Her satin lapel Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci suit was paired with a satin clutch and silver pendant necklace.

They all look smart, but the only one who nails this look is Jessica.

Leighton can’t take total credit for this look as Marlene Dietrich and Diane Keaton popularized androgynous-chic a long time ago.

Winona Ryder For Elle UK July 2009

Winona Ryder graces the cover of  Elle UK’s July 2009 issue, shot by Matthias Vriens McGrath.

On the newsstand cover, she wears a nude tulle Dolce & Gabbana corset, and on the subscribers cover, she wears a simple black American Apparel top.

In the interview, Winona talks about childhood bullies, leading roles, beauty and her latest film, “The Private Lives of Pippa Lee”.

On Being Bullied: “We only shopped at the Salvation Army, and I would get these three-piece, 1970s little boy suits. I had really short hair, and the third day of seventh grade, these kids basically jumped me in the hall because they thought I was a gay boy, and they roughed me up… I think when that happened, I kind of went into a movie in my head because I couldn’t deal with what was happening. Kids would say, ‘You’re a witch, you’re creepy, you’re crazy.’ I was in the number-one movie in the country and I was still being bullied in school.”
