LEIGHTON MEESTER’S STYLE DIARY
“Gossip Girl” star and singer Leighton Meester gained style notoriety as Blair Waldorf, the Upper East Side queen that ruled her turf with headbands, statement jewelry and perfectly polished ensembles always in place. Meester is far more relaxed. Modeling looks from Jimmy Choo’s spring/summer 2015 colletion, she shares her own approach to fashion.
What’s your red carpet style? It varies, which is what I find most fun about getting dressed for an event. I like to experiment and change depending on mood, but comfort is most important to me.
What’s your off duty look? Jeans and tees, jumpers, jean jacket, comfortable long skirt and sweater.
Piece of fashion advice you would give your best friend? I appreciate honesty so I would always ask a good friend for fashion advice, and I will give input but I have some very stylish friends.
Who are your style icons? Diane Keaton and Stevie Nicks
What inspires you? Intelligent, passionate women who fight for the education, equality and empowerment of others and the women and men who support them.
How do you feel that your style has changed through the years? Like anyone, I’ve gone through phases, but the biggest difference is that I’m less concerned with fashion for fashion’s sake. I find that I’m happiest when I’m comfortable in my favourite key items, so I just add or subtract from my tried and true items to create a certain look.
