Look of the Day: Leighton Meester

August 10, 2009

I saw this image from the Teen Choice awards yesterday and I was compelled to create a whole post about it! I absolutely love Gossip Girls’ Leighton Meester in this entire ensemble. (FYI: she’s wearing a Louis Vuitton dress, Brian Atwood “Zenith” Mary Janes, Cathy Waterman jewels and a Nina Ricci clutch.) The look is young and fun but still totally chic. But what I’m really drawn to is the graphic black, white and red color palette–it’s something that can be worn all year round if done right.

Just like Leighton added a fantastic punch of color with her shoes, you can do the same thing with a handbag. Here are two of my favorites in that perfect shade of fire engine red:

Chanel Vintage Red Suede Diagonal Quilted Envelope Style Single Flap Mini Shoulder Bag

Chanel Quilted Red Patent Leather Top Flap Handbag
