It would be either one of these dresses, though preferably the first one (I will take Alessandra's shoes as well) ...



And underneath these thigh highs (would settle for the lingerie as well) ...

I haven't heard of Gotham magazine, it obviously isn;t on my monthly reading list.  But I found these interesting photos that someone had scanned a couple of years ago.

Best of recent fashion

Its pretty slow days around the holidays.  Most celebrities keep a low profile, but things are picking up again as the awards season is ramping up.



Country Strong

Thu, 01/13/2011 - 7:19AM by Jen Erate 0 Comments -

So as anyone who follows this blog must know, it is uncommon for me to go off on such a tangent about one particular actress.  The reason for my focus on Leighton Meester was that I recently saw her performace in Country Strong.  I can't say that I liked the movie overall, but the background story around Meester's character I thought was pretty well done.   I think in light of her performace in the movie and that she is taking on some heavier roles in the coming year, I think she might be breaking through to A list, maybe even ahead of her Gossip girl co-star Blake Lively.  Anyway there was one scene in the movie where Leighton looked absolutely adorable, where she is wearing a white dress.  Here are some screen stills:





Leighton Meester in GQ

Thu, 01/13/2011 - 6:46AM by Jen Erate 0 Comments -

I have mentioned in an earlier post how I do regularly read GQ, as I find from a fashion standpoint it offers a different perspective than the woman's fashion magazines.  I have also recently been impressed with Leighton Meester's work (can you tell from my recent posts?)  I think she is on the verge of having a breakthrough year.  Something which bothers me about breakthroughs for young actresses is that they usually have to appear scantily clad in some magazine or other, in order to appeal to the male portion of fandom.  I am sort of two minds about this, in a perfect world it wouldn't have to happen, but in the real world if selling sex appeal helps then maybe it is worth it.  Natalie Portman for isntance has refused to appear in any men's magazines.  She has an image which she wants to uphold, but in the coming year she is starring in more commercial movies than she is used to, and in my opinion it is in the same vein as appearing in a men's magazine, simply to appeal to a larger base.  Anyway love them or hate them here are Leighton pictures from her GQ photoshoot in 2009 (I think her heels in the last photo are pretty unrealistic by the way.)
