In or Out: Leighton Meester
Y’know, with a little illusion netting, she totally could have been a walking “two faces kissing or a goblet?” optical illusion.
On Leighton it just looks sloppy and overdone. Please note that we are NOT saying that she’s not model-thin enough to wear the dress. This has nothing to do with body types (and let’s face it, Leighton’s body is pretty much flawless by real-world standards); it has more to do with…well, having the skill to wear a dress like this. We know that sounds a little silly, but the higher up you get on the fashion chain, the more you have to possess some sort of skill at wearing clothes, especially if you’re regularly photographed. An unusual little dress like this requires boatloads of attitude, perfect posture from every angle, and the kind of (occasionally delusional) confidence that says “I am the SHIT in this frigging dress!”
So, even though her shoes are fabulous, her hair and makeup are pretty and the dress is unusual and eye-catching, it’s more of an OUT for us. Leighton honey, pay attention. We’re going to give you the advice that your stylist obviously didn’t but your gay uncles will:
Chin up, tits out, feet spaced at shoulder width, hand on hip and through it all, keep telling yourself over and over and over again “Everyone wants to be me or do me.”
