Leighton Meester is one of those stars whose red carpet appearances are awaited by fashionistas everywhere. Whether it's a minimalist minidress or a printed maxi, Leighton knows what works
After a television debut in 1999, Leighton got her big break in Gossip Girl in 2007 and has since used the role to open doors to a serious career in film, theatre and music.
She's doing a good job of shaking off 'Blair Waldorf', having ventured out in to the world of theatre, independent film and music. She starred in a hugely successful Broadway revival of Of Mice And Men, has three films coming out this year and an album.
Unsurprisingly, her style has visibly evolved during this time yet, unlike some young stars, she doesn't have many sartorial skeletons in her closet. She keeps it classic, on and off the red carpet, particularly nailing it at the Met Gala in embellished Emilio Pucci and at the Tony Awards in a white floor-length Antonio Berardi number. Through all her style decisions, you get a real sense of how comfortable she is in herself and where she is.
