Celebrity Girl Crush – Leighton Meester

I’m feeling great at the moment, not that I’m usually in a bad mood but today I’m in a marvellous mood. I think it might have something to do with the gorgeous weather, the fact that it’s a bank holiday and that this is my first official post for stylist stuff.

So, whilst catching some rays I started to think about what I wanted my first post to be about; I pondered all day just to come to the conclusion that this would only work if I just rolled with it, so here goes, may the rolling musings commence…

So I may as well confess to you all now, my name is Leanne and I am a celebrity addict. For the record I am a little bit ashamed, it’s not exactly ‘cool’ but I’m no crazed stalker; I don’t wait in hotel rooms or have posters on my wall. I just like to know what’s going on that’s all. It doesn’t help that a big part of my job at Elleuk.com is to follow ; I work on the Picture Desk which means I’m always looking at hi-res images of various with their hair perfectly coiffed and their teeth dazzling and white.

From time to time (ok, more ‘from week to week’) you have your favourite girl crush, someone who gives you a severe case of envy-itus with every outing. Last week it was Diane Kruger (well it was Cannes after all and she did wear a pair of fabulous Chanel heels) this week it’s a regular favourite of mine, Gossip Girls Leighton Meester.

Leighton, aka Blaire Waldorf from is my newest girl crush; with her newly blonde locks and effortless style she is really upping the ante in terms of style. Ok, I didn’t particularly love what she wore to the Met Ball Gala event, I thought she looked a bit of a state if truth be told but then so did everyone that night.

 But last Wednesday at the CW Upfronts Party in NYC Leighton wore a chic Jil Sandler shorts and jacket combo. Her hair sleek and straight, her make-up minimal, she really did look fantastic but simply because it all looked so effortless.

Whether she’s at a red carpet event or walking the streets of New York Leighton Meester always gives me wardrobe-envy.

I know she won’t last in my affections, they never do, what can I say, I’m fickle. But for now, well she’ll just have to do.

Until next time people, XOXO
