She may play a privileged and flawlessly lip-glossed Queen B on TV, but “Gossip Girl’s” Leighton Meester says she’s actually a drugstore diva.
We caught up with the 24-year-old actress and her personal stylist Charles Baker Strahan at New York’s Eventi Hotel, where we asked the new Herbal Essences spokesmodel if she really shops bargain when it comes to beauty.
After all, she has access to everything, right? Read more… Keep reading »
Since “Gossip Girl” and its histrionics are going to be on hiatus for another month or so, I thought we’d take a look back at one of the greatest friend pairings (or is that frenemy pairings?) on earth via the show’s two biggest stars — Blake Lively and Leighton Meester. Both ladies have great style — I mean Blake’s been chosen as the new face of Chanel, and Leighton’s just gorgeous. But who would win in a true style showdown? Let’s take a look after the jump!
“I had bruises all over my body. I had scratches everywhere from falling out of the window and from Leighton breaking things over my head. My neck was sore from her choking me, I actually had little bruises under my jaw from her hands.”

“She worked with psychologists; she really studied the illness of the character, so much that at times on set I was a little concerned whether or not she was there because she scared me so much! The look in her eye was so surreal. I was in awe at how much she committed to it. … People on set would mistake her for being sort of antisocial. She would isolate herself from everyone.”

“I’ve never really liked anybody before. Even when I would date guys, it would sort of be on the surface and it was always a relief when we broke up. … I’ve only had one experience where it was really hard and I was really sad when it ended, but that’s what taught me a lot about myself and love and life – and that’s good.”
—Leighton Meester of “Gossip Girl” and the upcoming “Country Strong” talks to Seventeen about her breakup experiences. She says that only one—her split from co-star Sebastian Stan—really affected her. Can this be true, or is Leighton gilding the lily? Isn’t heartbreak one of the universal lowest common denominators?

“I hate it. It’s wonderful to be in love. And it’s definitely wonderful to cuddle and have sex and get to experience life with somebody. But it’s OK if you don’t find him and you’re 24. You can find it someday.”

Dear Leighton Meester, We love “Poison Ivy”-era Drew Barrymore as much as the next girl. But that doesn’t mean we feel the need to throw on a ’90s-ified crop top. Sure, you look cute (when do you not look cute?), but this is one midriff-baring trend we hoped would stay safely in the past. Keep reading »
Women dress for other women as much as they dress for men, so when you have a day out with the girls, you’ve got to look your best. Leighton Meester wore the above look on the set of “Gossip Girl,” but it seems a little tame to be from her character Blair Waldorf’s wardrobe. This might be an outfit Leighton put together herself, which means it’s totally wearable for regular women. A shirt dress is subtly sexy with a pair of heels. And your girls are sure to swoon over a chic two-tone tote like Leighton’s. Find out how to get a similar look after the jump. Keep reading »
