Sometimes we feel like Us Weekly‘s “The Fashion Police” and other similar style critics can be a tad harsh. Also, they tend to have these really boring, conservative styles and we have to wonder what their real fashion credentials are. (Case in point: US Weekly‘s “Top Cops” include random comedian Stefanie Novik and Chet Cannon of “The Real World, Brooklyn.” When did they ever go to design school!?) The Fashion Peacekeepers are here to say, hey, can’t everyone’s styles just get along?
While we personally would likely shy away from this complicated, chest-baring, mullet-skirted concoction when making our own red carpet appearances, we will give Leighton Meester‘s recent party outfit this much: That getup is a great improvement on this one, so you know, she’s got that going for her.

has been working hard on launching her singing career, providing guest vocals on other groups’ songs (Cobra Starship’s “Good Girls Go Bad
“) and performing
at the opening of American Eagle’s flagship store in New York City last week. Now, she’s trying to get a holiday song stuck in our heads à la Mariah Carey.
I definitely prefer this seasonal tune to her upcoming album’s first single, “Somebody to Love
“; however, we all have “All I Want for Christmas Is You” in our heads 15 years after it first came out, so I’d say Mariah still holds the top spot. Keep reading »
“I always resist falling in love. My problem is, I lose interest. Every time I’ve fallen in love, it’s just momentary. Honestly, I’ve hated every boyfriend I’ve had. I don’t want to have a boyfriend unless I want to be with him forever. If I don’t see an end, that’s nice. Because I always see an end.”

Let’s take a vote: who thinks Leighton Meester should ditch that singing/acting crap to be a full-time lingerie model? Meeee! [GQ] Keep reading »
First, ignore the fact that not only did Leighton Meester play up her lips (bright red!), but also her eyes (major smokey shadow!) at the same time—I’m not a fan, but, hey, rules are created to be broken. Instead, let’s focus on the
crazy interesting eye shadow trick she’s got going on: Shadow in her crease, shadow above her eye, but no shadow (or at least a totally different and light shadow) on her eyelids. While I’m not advising you do that for anything other than a red carpet appearance, I do think you could copy that trick with less jarring colors and it’d look pretty freaking awesome. I’m feeling a lighter wash of, say, peachy brown?
Here’s how to do it …

Hey! It’s the debut of the new Leighton Meester music video! Finally! In “Somebody to Love,” Meester does her best Madonna-meets-Blondie impression in the backseat of a car. She does a fine job of writhing around, looking sexy, and sort-of singing about, you know, like, love. Thankfully, Robin Thicke is there to lend a hand in the vocal department. “It’s hard to find a man/When you’re gone before he wakes,” Meester chants. So post-feminist, Blair. Don’t quit your day job.
