Gossip Girl‘s resident Queen Bee Leighton Meester has teamed with another Upper East Side fashion fixture: designer Vera Wang. The stylish star has signed as the latest face for the famed designer’s next fragrance, scheduled to hit department stores this summer. “I am so thrilled to have Leighton as the face of our new fragrance,” Wang said in a release. “Her beauty, talent, and spirit will inspire all the young women that I hope will enjoy this passionate, young fragrance.” And while Leighton was recently named global ambassador for hair care brand Herbal Essences, this new partnership marks her first foray into fragrance. Ads will be shot by famed photographer Carter Smith in New York this weekend and are slated to hit the pages of your favorite magazines next summer. And while further details on the fragrance have yet to be revealed, we’re certain that a Vera-and-Leighton combination will make a oh-so-chic spritz. Tell us: What do you think of Leighton Meester’s new role as the face of a Vera Wang fragrance? –Jessie Goldberg
