Leighton Meester's Perfect Cocktail Dress Look

Although with a few fashion mishaps in the past (a certain Louis Vuitton getup at the MET Costume Gala is still burnt into our brain), our favorite scheming Gossip Girl Leighton Meester turned it out at a recent Herbal Essences meet-n-greet in Spain. A ladylike LBD by Versus—a simplistic departure from her typically edgy aesthetic—was paired with Pierre Hardy peacock-inspired circular patchwork stilettos, and topped off with a head of luscious, natural waves. Ladies, let this be a prime example on how to turn heads at your next holiday party. Keep it simple, but with an extra punch of sassy. Brava, Meester. We love this look! (Stylelist)
