It's finally here!! The Target + Neiman Marcus Holiday Collection, complete with special pieces from 24 designers (from Band of Outsiders to Oscar de la Renta!), launched this morning at both shopping outlets and I couldn't be more excited! Seriously--some of the stuff is so cute, but don't take my word for it visit Target.com and NeimanMarcus.com to see all they have to offer. A lot of sold out quickly---but fear not, many items are already set to be re-stocked. At the official launch party, which was held on Wednesday night in New York City, celebrities like Kate Bosworth, Leighton Meester and Zoe Saldana came out to support---and SHOP! Let's break down the party looks some of Hollywood's hottest selected for the party, shall we?
Leighton Meester debuted a new shorter 'do on Thursday night when she hosted the Flaunt Magazine Fêtes Lastet Issue dinner party with Diesel Black Gold and Stetson Bourbon at Ink in Los Angeles. The 26-year-old actress just completely wrapped filming on the long-running CW show "Gossip Girl", so I'm assuming she was ready for a change. You usually can't make such drastic changes when you're playing a character on TV due to continuity. For the party, Leighton wore a strapless white-and-black geometric printed cocktail dress by Mary Katrantzou
The end of "Gossip Girl" is near, so Leighton Meester took to "Live! with Kelly and Michael" this week to promote the final season! Taking a break from filming, the 26-year-old actress arrived at ABC Studios in New York City bright and early on Tuesday morning looking lovely in a ivory, black and rusted orange colorblock wool dress by Giambattista Valli ($2,003, net-a-porter.com). Not only did the slim silhouette flatter Leighton's trim figure, it was just a beautiful sheath dress in general.
Leighton Meester attended the New York City screening of her new movie "The Oranges" on Friday night wearing a dramatic black cocktail dress and a fierce pair of heels. The 26-year-old actress looked amazing in her sleeveless silk Giambattista Valli dress, which featured a draping element on one side of the pencil cut skirt and a bold gold metallic belt. This dress was originally seen in red during the Fall/Winter 2012 presentation, but I think it really suited Leighton in black for this appearance.
It was the debut of the Resort 2013 collection for Salvatore Ferragamo last night in Paris, which was presented during a live runway show at the Louvre (Musée du Louvre). This marked the first time in history that a brand has shown inside the halls of the prestigious museum. Nothing like making fashion history! Among the glamorous attendees were actresses Leighton Meester ("Gossip Girl"), Freida Pinto ("Trishna") and Hilary Swank ("Conviction") in striking looks from the Fall 2012 collection. Leighton arrived looking regal in rich oxblood red; a sheer off the shoulder blouse that was enriched with beautiful gold embroidery, which was paired with a dazzling sequin and bead-embellished pencil skirt. She gathered her golden brown tresses back to show off her bare shoulders, before completing her look with a black minaudière and matching Ferragamo platform peep toe pumps.
If you were lucky enough to be sitting at the Louvre Museum on Tuesday, June 12th in Paris, France -- you will have witness fashion history in the making. Salvatore Ferragamo 's Creative Director, Massimiliano Giornetti presented the Resort 2013 Ferragamo collection inside the halls of the prestigious location, marking the first time a brand has conducted a fashion show there. Giornetti sent his models down a 120 meter runway under the Denon wing’s colonnade in front of more than 500 guests flown in from around the world as 'the eternal summer girl' was revealed within look after eclectic look.
Leighton Meester was a a guest on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Thursday to talk about her new movie, "That's My Boy". The 26-year-old actress rocked a leather little black dress from the Pre-Fall 2012 collection by Cushnie et Ochs. The sleeveless croc design featured a drop waist that turned into a flirty flounce skirt. Considering stars are already starting to wear the Resort 2013 collections, it's so nice to see some of my favorite looks from Pre-Fall getting some well-deserved attention.
After a stylish moment at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards, Leighton Meester was back on the red carpet last night for the Los Angeles premiere of "That's My Boy" at Regency Village Theatre Westwood. The 26-year-old rocked this sky blue and black patterned asymmetric dress from the Fall 2012 collection by Versus. The psychedelic design travels into a thick strap at the right shoulder, but the left side features a collection of black straps to give it a bit of an edgy twist.
Leighton Meester is getting that summer feeling, which was evident in her outfit last ngiht at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards. The "Gossip Girl" actress is currently on tour to promote her music, but she took the night off to hang out at the Universal Studios' Gibson Amphitheatre for MTV's biggest night in film. Leighton arrived on the red carpet in a Spring 2012 ensemble from Christian Cota, which included a white sleeveless jacket with matching pleat front shorts and a abstract printed planktonic silk top. I love the color combination of the bright blue, coral, white and minty green.
