Leighton Meester has developed over the last six years into one of the most down to earth, fashionable and talented actresses in Hollywood. However being mainly on Gossip Girl, not everybody knows who she is or what’s so great about her. Well, there are plenty of reasons to love Miss Meester.
She can sing
You know how some actresses try to be singers, but they’re not particularly good at it, and sell records because the fans will follow them anywhere? Leighton can actually sing. Her voice is pretty stunning, and easy to listen to over a FoxyBingo game or while you check her out on Twitter. Oh and she happens to play the guitar as well.
She gained a hair appreciation following when she was cast in Gossip Girl as Blair Waldorf. Her wavy long curls prompted millions of fans to grow their hair and style it the same way for the last six years. Having recently finished filming her last season of Gossip Girl though, Leighton has chopped her hair into a short bob, which also suits her, proving that some women can go either way and still look stunning. Jealous.
She seemed to master the art of Hollywood glamour not long after she became the apple of the media’s eye. In fact she seemed to have it down pat beforehand, and has very rarely gone wrong, with her sophisticated choices which both flatter and leave plenty to the imagination. Her style has only blossomed over time, and she’s considered a style icon.
A bubbly person in real life, she’s a genuine sweetheart who gets on well with her co-stars. Also unlike her character in Gossip Girl, she seems a lot more mature when it comes to gossiping. She said herself that she tries not to let gossip effect her real life, and lets negativity roll off her back. Although she’s happy to take a compliment when it’s offered.
