A swipe of bronze shadow and a little pink gloss was all Leighton needed to look polished for a sunny bash. For a night event, she pulled back her hair and wore a deep burgundy lip shade, plus a few extra coats of mascara.

TV fans rejoiced when Meester, 27, and Brody, 33, came out as a couple in February. A few weeks later, they were spotted at dinner with a pal in Venice, Calif., too. Since we haven't heard from them since, though, we're hoping this blossoming real thing isn't just a spring fling.

Pink suede heels, where have you been all our lives? The Rupert Sanderson kicks seen on Leighton Meester (as Blair Waldorf) remind us of Barbie shoes in the best way. Skip the Barbie styling, though, and wear them with something sleek and simple to avoid a pageant queen comparison.

"I don't think Blair Waldorf would approve, but I love this shirt. Where do I buy it?" – Veronica
It's definitely more downtown than Upper East Side, but that shouldn't stop you from ordering Leighton's Rails "Kendra" top, sold for $128.

The colorful look is no longer just for crafters, hippies and Coachella attendees. It's now considered one of the sexiest prints of the season – and it can even work for formal occasions. Try Leighton Meester's technique and wear it on a cocktail dress, or pick a maxi that's in keeping with the low-key feel of the print, like Eva Longoria does.

FLORAL BLAZERS

Take your black blazer out of rotation and replace it with a floral-printed one. No longer confined to sundresses, this large, graphic print looks great over a silky shirt (à la Leighton Meester, who wears a Lisa Ho jacket and Joe's top), but can also be used to instantly spruce up jeans and a tee.
