Golden Globes 2011: Leighton Meester looks like a New York fashion person in Burberry Prorsum
Although Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester‘s dress was not on many best-dressed lists today, I can’t help but love it, and her whole look, from top to bottom. In sharp contrast to Michelle Williams’ daisy distaster, Leighton’s subtly patterned Burbery Prorsum Pre-Fall 2011 dress is exactly how people who love taking risks on the red carpet should be taking them.
Long sleeves were among my favorite fashion trends of the 2011 Golden Globe Awards, and the retro-yet-soft look of this dress is perfect for an actress who has become a New York scene fixture rather than a Los Angeles red carpet party girl. Good for Leighton for staying true to her quirky, cool personal style and not donning something boring and safe just to please others. This look was one of my favorites of the evening. She accented her dress with a Louis Vuitton clutch.
