Our November Sartorial Compass is here, and in contrast to Kirsten Dunst, Leighton is quite new on the scene, yet she's had quite the introduction to the fashion world while playing socialite Blair Waldorf on Gossip Girl. G.G. is on its 5th season, and I couldn't be more thankful that it came along to introduce me to such a fashion risk taker (and um the Blair & Chuck saga). Today take a look at Leighton's affinity for crisp and clean white ensembles as well as her love for looks on the darker side...
When she wears white she tends to let the looks do the talking. Just recently she was in Toronto debuting a film in the crocheted dress, it's an outfit that definitely showcases her mature fashion sense with its mid-length hem. And of course there's the white Bottega Veneta dress she wore SO WELL to the Golden Globes accessorized with a lovely red lip.
She also leans toward all black quite often, but tends to play up her darker looks with heavier makeup and accessories. The first is a dress from Christopher Kane's first collection for resurrected line Versus, I was enamored with the flounce and pleats on the dresses. She definitely doesn't do boring black!
This is one of my favorite Leighton fashion moments, she wore this leather Chanel dress to a Chanel show and dared to be different by adding a chunky necklace to an already amazing dress.
She knows how to keep her look classic in black and white but never shies away from adding big time accessories or bold makeup.
