We love when people play against type. That's why we find Leighton Meester's character Blair Waldorf on The CW's Gossip Girl so much fun. On the show she plays a preppy Upper East Side princess, when in real life she is more of a downtown diva.
Every Monday we see her in sheaths, caplets (as shown above), pencil skirts, peacoats and headbands. Alternatively, in her downtime she works abstract print dresses, skinny jeans, booties, and leather.
Above right, she shows off her personal style in a black leather plunging neckline micro-mini dress and bandeau by Paule Ka. She finishes off the look with tousled curls and seriously smokey eyes.
