Any time a Gossip Girl lands on our fair shores it’s a cause for celebration. Yesterday we were beside ourselves with excitement to meet Leighton Meester and Vera Wang as they launched the designer’s new fragrance, Lovestruck, in Harrods.
Clad in a blush-coloured vest top and leather skinnies, the face of the fragrance was the perfect mix of edgy and sweet, just like the floral perfume, which was inspired by Romeo and Juliet.
Vera Wang said: “Lovestruck is all about being overwhelmed, inexplicably, hopelessly in love. Allowing yourself to feel passion in spite of yourself, the situation, the repercussions. A new definition of Romeo and Juliet. Sexy, sensual, and unstoppable.”
The ads for the scent, which were filmed last November, see Leighton in a burgundy tulle wedding gown (Wang , of course) on a balcony and her star-crossed lover climbing up to her holding a bouquet of roses.
Sounds just like a Blair and Chuck scene from Gossip Girl!
