My addiction to everything Leighton Meester has translated into my pictures and styling lately. The first instance I saw her on TV, that is the House, MD episode where she played a blonde teenage girl obsessed with Dr. House, she reminded me of my all-time girl crush Alicia Silverstone. Since then, I have discreetly followed Leighton’s career. ‘Til she became the very popular Blair Waldorf in the series Gossip Girl. I must say, her brunette locks suit her better.
I’m so loving these beauty shots of her for Marie Claire that I used them as peg for my shoot with Sam Lim at Hinge Inquirer Publications’ studio a couple of weeks ago.
So, below is our version.
My hair looks pretty long now, but I didn’t realize I’d still be needing extensions to exactly imitate Leighton’s hair. /FAIL. Nonetheless, I love how the make up complements my outfit.
It’s amazing how two opposite fabrics can make an edgy yet fun statement. The feminine touch given by lace tones down the boldness exuded by snakeskin print.
I’m posting the colored version of the photos above for you to see what the dress actually looks like. 🙂
You can buy this dress at House of Cocco‘s boutiques in SM and Trinoma. Aside from their faux fur collection, they have also released pieces in varied animal prints. Just perfect for the chilly weather, don’t you think?
