Leighton Meester has been a little off the radar lately, what with shooting scenes for Gossip Girl and pursuing her singing career, she’s a busy girl indeed. But boy have we missed her red carpet style. She looked stunning last night in her Giambattista Valli dress teamed with strappy PHI shoes and Cathy Waterman jewels.
Leighton’s dress, with its surprising yet exquisite fringed detail to the back was a pure delight. She toughened up the girly frock with some hard edged buckle shoes, yet softened the overall look with natural looking hair and toned down make-up. She appeared to have very little make-up on, except for a berry lip stain and a slick of mascara. We're not jealous, no honestly we're not.
It wasn't just Leighton who wowed on the red carpet, Tina Fey, the star of the film was elegance personified in her knee-length black dress, which she teamed with a cool quiff and a pair of simple black court shoes.
Another star of the film, Taraji P. Henson wowed in a strapless sky-blue fitted frock with origami detail bust.
Tennis champ Serena Williams also rocked a dress on the red carpet, wearing a body-con navy number that showed off her toned figure perfectly.
Whilst we admit Leighton Meester beat everyone in the style stakes we have been inspired by all of the ladies last night. We think it’s time to go out and buy a new summer dress, may the shopping commence.
