Marie Claire April 2012 with The Queen Bee: Leighton Meester

The star of Marie Claire's US April edition: Leighton Meester. I really adore her role in Gossip Girl, not for the character's personality but for the style. She always looks sooooo good and fresh, and that pretty princess preppy look is irresistible! I love the bows, ribbons, laces, colourful hosieries, tweed jackets and everything else she wore on the screen. I love preppy chic!

Her cover shoots, however, is quite disappointing. Some of her magazine shoots tend to be predictable and classic, but not in a good way. She looks pretty, that's for sure, but that's about it. The pictures don't really leave a strong presence in my mind and they don't speak much about her personality. Not memorable at all.

I can't help but staring at her eyebags. It's so big!! What did the makeup artists have in mind when they're polishing her face? Where's the photoshop airbrush? I don't know if it's intended or not, but she looks much, much older than her age. That's really sad though. She's beautiful as she is.

She surprised me by saying, "The only time a relationship is good is when you really love them. I don't want to hang out with some guy I just like." I wonder if her upbringing has anything to do with her decision to wait for the right guy to date. Apparently, in these crazy hollywood love-dating culture, there's a shining star whose love life is actually normal

But then she surprised me again by saying, "I'm not sure I ever want to get married."

Why? I can never understand people who don't wish to be wedded happily ever after with someone they truly love, a companion for life. Oh well, life's full of mystery.

Eyebags! Eyebags alert! Can you see the eyebags too? It's not just me isn't it?

It makes me a bit scared, since I've been regularly sleeping at such a late hour these days. Some days I feel really tired, but there are responsibilities I can't leave behind such as facebooking, blogging, skype-ing (if there's such word). That, and I also don't have a strong enough willpower to sleep early.

Fyi, early is 9-10 pm and late is 1-2 am for me. I really hope my eyebags won't get any where worse than it currently is.

If you're interested, find out more details about her outfits in this editorial here.

  1. Lol.. I think she was just born with those eyebags. I read it somewhere that people who hv big eyes are more likely to have bigger eyebags. Or something like that. She looks a lot like adele, don't you think?

    1. Omg I just realised it too. She does look like Adele! Like the slimmer version or her sister. Oh lol
