Leighton Meester Downplays Style Icon Status

by at . Comments

Combining fashion-forward looks and traditional elegance, Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester is considered by many to be a style icon for her generation.

But the 23-year-old beauty was surprisingly modest and self-conscious when asked about her fashion at the 3.1 Philip Lim show at Fashion Week in NYC.

“That’s a very nice thing to say,” a blushing Leighton Meester said when asked about her style icon status. “But I don’t ... I don’t know. It's not me.”

As for what she’d tell her fans about picking the right outfit, she keeps it simple: “I guess it’s just fun,” Leighton explained. “Just wear what you like.”

The Gossip Girl star went to Lim’s show for the second year in a row.

“It’s just very original and inspired and it’s feminine and beautiful,” she said. “I just saw a few little pieces backstage and I closed my eyes."

"I wanted it to be a surprise!”

Blair: Fashion is the most powerful art there is. It's movement, design and architecture all in one. It shows the world who we are and who we'd like to be. Just like your scarf suggests that you'd like to sell used cars.
Dan: Vanessa gave me this scarf.
