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!”
