Magazine Covergirl: NYLON -- Leighton Meester (February 2011)

     I absolutely love Blair Waldorf -- the bow headband on her hair, the Prada on her feet, and the scheme of sabotage on her mind. She's the type of dictator that you can't help but cheer for. But Leighton Meester, surprisingly enough, is nothing like Queen B. Sure she appreciates good designer labels like Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler, Dior, Celine, and Prada, but she actually prefers light hair and make up on any given day and even admits that she wouldn't actually make the same vicious choices as her character in Gossip Girl, as revealed by her cover story in this February issue of NYLON magazine. 

     Gossip Girl made Leighton a household name, but she is actually quite the chameleon. Her extremely different roles in her upcoming movies like Country Strong with Gwyneth Paltrow and The Roommate with Minka Kelly, both of which are in theaters now, proves that versatility. And what's more, Missoni just made her the new face of their Spring 2011 campaign -- which is something she is very familiar with since she actually started off by being spotted by a talent agent, which ultimately landed her in a Ralph Lauren campaign when she was only 11 years old!

     For this February NYLON shoot, which was shot in NYC and styled by the senior fashion editor, Michelle Reneau, Leighton ditched her Gossip Girl collegiate ensemble for something more edgy and eclectic. I absolutely DIE for the golden yellow Chole' dress and tweed Chanel vest ensemble, cinched with a belt and paired with a vintage Chanel necklace and Fendi bracelets. And the fact that it was styled with boots instead of heels makes it even more rock n' roll. Such unexpected twist makes it even look better. I think the proper term is glam-rock.  I love the pop of colors in each shot. It takes away the gloomy mood of the winter season and openly welcomes spring. And you know how much I love color. Oh, and Chanel. Oh how I love Chanel.
