Leighton Meester is looking lovely in Dolce & Gabbana on the cover of Lucky magazine's July issue.
Everything about the photo is positively glowing! Her eyes, her skin, even her hair seems extra shimmery. Gorge, Leighton!
While chatting with the mag, the Gossip Girl star opens up about how playing Blair Waldorf has changed her shopping habits and her thoughts on love.
Here are some HIGHlights:
On how Gossip Girl has changed her personal style:
"My friend says that before the show I dressed like a homeless person. I used to buy everything at garage sales. It was hard to give up! I’d be like, ‘But this crazy sweater is amazing, and it only cost 25 cents!’ I’ve learned from Blair, though. Now I like to pepper in something designer with my usual stuff."
On her makeup routine:
"I’ve stopped wearing makeup when I’m not working. For a while I thought I had dark circles and bad skin, and then I realized I was seeing myself that way because I didn’t recognize myself anymore without makeup. Now when I wear it, I think I look really weird!"
On falling in love:
"I love love. It’s the most intriguing universally understood emotion, and it comes in so many forms: family love, love of friends. I fall in love with everybody all the time."
Who knew Blair had such deep thoughts? Ha!
