POV: September has arrived, marking the perfect time to indulge in a nostalgic rewatch of Gossip Girl, and Leighton Meester has graced us with the ultimate homage to her beloved character, Blair Waldorf.
In a delightful display of transitional fashion, the actress showcased her impeccable style while capturing the essence of Blair (minus the iconic headband). Stepping out at Calzedonia's A Legs Celebration Event in Milan, Meester donned a chic, super-short A-line dress by Magda Butrym, adorned in a soft shade of pale gray. The dress featured a plunging halter neckline, exuding Blair's signature sophistication. Staying true to character, she paired the ensemble with black tights and patent-leather Manolo Blahnik pumps. Adding a vibrant touch, she carried a striking red BY FAR handbag that perfectly complemented her manicure, while diamond stud earrings provided an elegant touch.
In the beauty department, Meester elegantly pulled her luscious brown locks into a tousled bun, with delicate wisps framing her forehead. Her glowing complexion was enhanced with pink lip gloss, rosy cheeks, and shimmery eyeshadow.
When she's not channeling her grown-up Gossip Girl persona, Meester dedicates her time to raising her two children, daughter Arlo and her son, whose name remains undisclosed, with her husband Adam Brody.
Reflecting on motherhood, Meester shared with People, “It's such an intimate and private experience. It's difficult to put into words. Having children has brought forth a whirlwind of emotions and made me reflect on my own upbringing and childhood.”
She added, “I want to provide our children with everything we didn't have while growing up, and also instill gratitude for all that we do have.”
