Cover Loving: Leighton Meester’s Raunchy Editorial For Flaunt Magazine

Gossip Girls is finally over and Leighton Meester is getting rid of her Blair Waldorf image with a very provocative editorial for Flaunt Magazine as the cover star for its The Mother Issue: Blow Your Load.

Shot by Yu Tsai, this photoshoot reminds me of something Helmut Newton would do, and I absolutely love Leighton looking like a high-end model with her jet black bob, it is like she went under a Tara makeover *sorry I am obsessed with America’s Next Top Model*.

I like the sexy styling, Robert Behar has done an amazing job, I completely adore the one-sleeved asymmetrical bustier Anthony Vaccarello gown on the cover, it works perfectly sandwiched between two naked models wearing Christian Louboutin brogues.

The rest of the editorial is just as strong with Leighton working a shaggy Mulberry coat, a striking yellow Versace dress, a gorgeous Pucci gown, and uber-sexy heels by Christian Louboutin and Brian Atwood – this is one steamy editorial.

So what do you think of Queen B’s raunchy editorial and do you like her Rose Byrne-inspired bob? Plus anyone else a little distracted by the very naked arse on the cover?

Resort 2013: Freida, Leighton & Hilary Dazzle At Salvatore Ferragamo

Last week fashion label Salvatore Ferragamo became the first Italian fashion house to stage a runway presentation at the Louvre museum, and they had a star-studded front row for the occasion with Freida Pinto, Leighton Meester and Hilary Swank.

Fresh from wearing Salvatore Ferragamo in Cannes, Freida Pinto continues to surprise me, I absolutely love her look for the presentation. Wearing an all-black ensemble from the label’s autumn/winter 2012 collection, I love the sheer sleeves on this embroidered dress as well as the added drama in its velvet neckline. This is a chic look that works perfectly with just a pop of colour to her lips and nails.

Gossip Girls actress Leighton Meester looked stunning in a rich red off-the-shoulder peasant blouse, teamed with an embellished pencil skirt, all from the Salvatore Ferragamo autumn/winter 2012 collection. One thing I am not too sure about with this look has to be whether Leighton can pull off such a rich hue – what do you think?

I am not sure why buy Oscar-winning actress Hilary Swank isn’t really on my radar red carpet wise and I have to be honest after seeing her in this black chiffon dress with gold lace detailing, also from the designer’s autumn/winter 2012 collection, I am seriously questioning why as she looks divine!!!

This rivals Freida for top spot for me, who would have thought I would put Leighton in last spot, but on this occasion she was out-done. Hilary’s look was glamorous, chic and completely flawless I adore the simple ponytail, and most of all those black strappy Ferragamo heels are insane, love them!!!

The Resort 2013 collection itself, out of the 43 looks there was only one black ensemble the rest were either white, tan, or various shades of nude. It had an ethereal vibe to it with the colour palette, where as the clothing weren’t flowing and sheer – they were more glitzy and embellished, with some dresses constructed from panels laced together with leather cords or in crocheted pieces finished with fringe.

One thing that definitely came across with this collection was the craftsmanship of the Italian label, every piece looked exquisite and detailed, and I can see a number of celebrities working these dresses in the near future.

That’s My Boy: Leighton Meester In Versus

Who: Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester

Where: At the LA premiere for her new film, That’s My Boy held at the Regency Academy Theater

Wearing: A blue-and-black tie-dyed effect asymmetrical Versus dress with black lace-up detailing on the left shoulder from the autumn/winter 2012 collection, teamed with a black Versace clutch and Jimmy Choo ‘Liv’ platform sandals

Verdict: I love this tie-dye mini dress on Leighton, it has the right mix of Californian ‘cool’ girl and a young actress promoting her new film. Like with Diane Kruger in Cannes the lace-up detailing is one of my favourite features, but I can’t help wonder if this dress is a little too safe, Diane’s with it cut-outs to the side had a more edgy feel to it, but I do prefer the black and blue combo.

I do love her choice of shoes, those Jimmy Choos are incredible. But I have to ask what is going on with her hair has it been lightened at the top? I am hoping this is for a role and a rich brunette look will be back shortly.

What do you think of this look?

Cover Loving: Leighton Meester For Marie Claire

I am not sure whether I have a style crush on Gossip Girl’s Blair Waldorf or Leighton Meester but I am loving her April 2012 Marie Claire USA cover. Even with a very busy cover, seriously the American’s do love their captions, Leighton looks gorgeous in a pop of yellow from that Reed Krakoff dress, and her hair and make-up is flawless.

If the cover wasn’t enough the rest of the images from the ‘Drama Queen’ editorial also shot by Tesh in New York is super pretty, my favourite image has to be of Leighton in this Theyskens’ Theory gown – pure genius. For more on the shoot and a sneak peek at her interview where she talks Gossip Girl, family and her love life head over to Marie Claire.

What do you think of this cover – will you be buying this issue?
