It’s no secret that I am utterly obsessed with Leighton Meester. Well, OK, I’m obsessed with her character, Blair Waldorf. But since Gossip Girl has become the darling of TV Leighton’s style has morphed from wannabe starlet to sophisticated New Yorker. Thank God!
She looks absolutely stunning in this Zac Posen Pre-Fall 08 mini-dress don’t you think? I love how structured the design is and also that it fits her like a glove. My only critique is that I wouldn’t have worn plain black stiletto pumps…I would have gone with a bright blue shoe to make the ensemble pop! 
While co-star Blake Lively is being compared to The OC’s Mischa Barton, Leighton is happily staying somewhat under the radar with comparison’s to the OC’s Rachel Bilson. And I’d like it to stay that way. Blake is getting much too overexposed and she’s far less talented and stylish than Leighton in my (humble) opinion. 
I’m not sure I can stand waiting for the September 1st premiere of Gossip Girl…especially since avoiding spoilers is becoming nearly impossible thanks to the paparazzi stalking the set


  1. I think the dress is beautiful, but I have to say I’m bored by the accessories. Simple black shoes, no necklace, earrings, or bracelet? There’s a certain simplicity to the dress that, in my opinion, begs for accessories. Just one would make me happy, really.

    thats because you are an accessories fiend, Kyley.🙂

  3. i think it’s perfect. accessories would have weighed it down.

  4. btw, I am in love with the wallet Tarrytown Taryn, especially in yellow. I am holding my v-card (kinda) for it. It would be the first purchase I’ve made that is truly luxury, not necessity, with my own money… That, or the tote? Tough choices!

  5. i think the dress looks fabolous on her. i think the black shoes go very well with her outfit because the dress is a sophisticated new yorker look and a color so bright well take the simplicity and sophisticated look away…making it look much flaunty and party like. i like how the accessories are limited with very simple earrings and a ring is enough. sometimes jewlery overpowers the beauty of the outfit. too much bling is not always pretty.
