Morning round-up: Leighton Meester signs record deal, plus Henry Holland's pre-BAFTA nerves

27 April 2009

Leighton Meester

Hold on to your headbands, ladies. Leighton Meester, aka Gossip Girl's Park Avenue Princess Blair Waldorf, is about to break into the music industry. ‘I signed my record deal today so I am really excited.' Can Ed Westwick be in the video, please? [WWD]

Could this be true? The rumour mill has it that Alicia Silverstone is working on a sequel to Clueless. All together now: ‘I don't think you understand. This is an Alaia dress.' [Catwalk Queen]

The first (and, somehow we think, not the last) book analysing Michelle Obama's style has just hit shelves and asks the key question that's been keeping us awake for weeks. ‘I'd just love to see her carrying a purse. Where does she keep her lip balm?' [Michelle Obama Watch]

Beyoncé is so determined to continue her love affair with Balmain, she was even prepared to employ a train wrangler to take care of the dress on the red carpet of her latest movie premiere. That's dedication. [WWD]

Henry Holland might have been walking on Alexa Chung's arm at last night's BAFTA TV awards but that didn't stop an attack of the pre-red carpet nerves. 'Just on my way to the BAFTAs. Lost my suit trousers and have plastic carrier bag stuck in my Hermès bracelet. Pure class.' We'd never be able to tell, Henners... [Twitter]
