We saw the pap pics, cooed over the glossy hair and pined after the breath-taking gown, but today, Upper East Siders, we bring you the full video of Leighton Meester for Vera Wang. Yeep!
In the newly-released fragrance commercial, Ms Meester is like a modern day Juliet as she waits on a NYC balcony for her rugged Romeo, played by the dreamy Chuck Bass Tommy Dunn. And we can't get over how divine that mermaid dress looks when in full, swooshy motion.
Admittedly, this is partly due to the fact we've discovered it's the burgundy version of a wedding dress from Wang's A/W '11 bridal collection - the very same that Hilary Duff wore for her nupitals, no less - complete with romantic ruffles at the hem and a curve-hugging strapless corset. Totes fairy tale appropriate, right? Not to mention worthy of Leighton's Park Avenue princess alter ego. Plus, those tousled waves and her blushed cheeks keep the look charmingly carefree. Oh, and she's smelling as sweet as roses thanks to the designer's new floral fragrance, Lovestruck, natch.
So as a Wang gal, the latest "face" of Missoni and brand ambassador for Herbal Essences (and did you see her being all cutesy alongside Gwyneth Paltrow in Country Song?), the Gossip Girl actress is fast becoming a fashion force to be reckoned with. Forget the fragrance, we want a bottle of that Meest magic please!
