Leighton Meester Downplays Style Icon Status

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!”

i see a bunch of haters already. wow you guys, its time you stop hating and get a better life.
in my opinion, Leighton has very good personal style. of course she's had one or two faux pas but who hasn't. i really like her style. and i'm not just saying that because i'm a fan. i'm very into fashion and i know a lot about the indudtry and when i makes statements i talk about what i know. so when i say Leighton has very good personal style it's because i know and the people who matter in the industry would agree with me.


since when she doesn't sleep put some make up on girl and the oufit is awful granny style:lol:




Stop hate on Leighton. She's gorgeous and iconic. She has really good sense of style.


She down plays it for good reason. She does not have good personal style.


wow without much make up she is still pretty, i wish i was like her


Her hair is not OK.


This is my absolute favorite of all her photos. STUNNNNING.


she keeps it simple: “I guess it’s just fun,� Leighton explained. “Just wear what you like.� yeah but she goes everywhere with her stylist ,hypocrisy much.


OH MY GOD,she's gorgeous. i know that but everytime is see a photo of her it just hits me all over again
