We see Leighton Meester as the evil yet very lovable Blair Waldorf on Gossip Girl. She is a 21 year old who fulfills every girl's fantasy wardrobe. What does she prefer wearing off camera?
For the costumes that she wears, Leighton speaks that they are very enjoyable to wear and very fabulous. She adds that she did not have anything like that at all when she was growing up at that age. However, she says that her own personal style is nothing like the costumes that she wears, because she has a bit of a chameleon style, saying that her fashion style is constantly changing. She is somewhat eclectic, and she likes to try a little bit of everything, but makes sure that she is casual and relaxed. To summarize, she says "Pretty much whatever's comfortable is the best choice for me". If you want to follow her star style, choose the most basic, and most comfortable and casual clothes that you have in your wardrobe, making sure that you do not overuse just one article.
Her favorite designers include Kenneth Cole, Ferragamo for bags, Zac Posen, Nanette Lepore, Marc Jacobs, Julie Has and Diane von Furstenberg. She says that she can't just pick one designer as her favorite because she uses and loves "different name brands for lots of different occasions".
When asked what her best present for herself is, Leighton answered that what she would like to give herself and what she would want to receive from other people is to be given some time off for herself from work, which she answered with a smile.
