7/18/11 Darling of the Day: Leighton Meester for Vera Wang’s Lovestruck!


Leighton Meester, the newest face of Vera Wang’s Lovestruck, looked super stylish & accessible in a pleated blush blouse, paired with some seriously sexy leather leggings at the fragrance’s London launch party.  A departure from some go-to black trousers, this look is incredibly easy to translate into your everyday life.  Not to mention that the Gossip Girl star is wearing some killer Brian Atwood sandals & a special leather-looking Dannijo bracelet.  These are essential for when you head out to the bar, for an interview at a trendy office, or an after work event.

I’ve turned this look into two comparable outfits, giving a shoutout to my plus-size Style Darlings!  While I couldn’t find a pleated blouse (I’m sure they’re out there in soft blush, nude, & gray hues), here we have a tailored ruffle top from The Limited, as well as a smocked button front shirt from Avenue.  On the bottom, try out leggings with a faux leather panel, or plus-sized Baby Phat leggings, which can also be paired with basic tees & a vest, or dressed up even more with a corset top or a belted tunic top.

The best lavender strappy sandals that I could find are these fun t-straps by Type Z @Zappos for $53! They’re perfect for underneath a floral maxi dress or to add a pop of color to an LBD. The only accessory that you’ll need for this look is a bejeweled mesh cuff by Candie’s, available @Kohl’s!

Style Darling has technologically come a long way, but take a look at the last time we featured Ms. Meester as a Darling of the Day.  If you love all thing stylish about Leighton, check her out on In Style on their Star Finder to see who she’s been wearing on the red carpet & for special events!  Happy Styling!
