With a closet full of uptown-appropriate outfits, Gossip Girl‘s resident queen bee Blair Waldorf may know a thing or two about fashion, but when it comes to personal style in real life, actress Leighton Meester is all about having a little edge. And now, just in time for the holiday shopping season, the style star is letting you in on some of her chic fashion finds, as a guest editor for She masters the high-low mix with a $20 pair of sunglasses from Lanvin’s latest runaway hit collaboration with H&M (“These are great to throw on as I run out the door, they complete any look, and the price is right”), and shows us her humor with a pair of Jimmy Choo platforms with a Lucite heel (“I wore this tranny heel to the Country Music Awards with a Pucci gown and loved every minute of it.”). Other finds include an emerald YSL blouse, because after all, “what’s more practical than a sleeveless crew-neck in a luxe fabric?” and a sweet ruffled Marc Jacobs frock that she deems “the perfect dress for a tea party.” See more of Leighton’s curated favorites for every occasion at!
