These are new photos of Leighton Meester in NYC, promoting that horrible-looking Selena Gomez movie, Monte Carlo. Leighton is working a new look – she gave herself bangs trauma. Do we need to have the same old fight about this? All too often, the girls who suddenly appear with a new set of bangs (trauma) are the ones who do NOT need it. Take Leighton – her face is lovely. Beautiful little dimples, sparkling eyes, great smile… she’s the poster child for “adorable”. Beyond that, her hair was already great – thick, with a natural curl or some kind of natural body working in there. So why ruin it all with bangs trauma? Does she think that she’s just so cute, she can pull off any look, any hairstyle? Very few women are that cute.
Now that I’ve ranted, I have to take part of it back. Although I almost always hate bangs (yes, I hate the HAIR not the PERSON), Leighton doesn’t look hideous with bangs. She simply looked much cuter without them. Hopefully, they’re those clip-on deals that everybody is doing this year.
In other Leighton news, did you know that she and Garrett Hedlund are still maybe-kinda happening? Us Weekly’s print edition had a story about them this week - they claimed that Garrett and Leighton, who starred together in Country Strong, were spotted “making out” at the Sunset Marquis. Unfortunately for Garrett (who is hot, sort of), Leighton also might be dating Justin Long…? She was overheard telling a friend about Long, so God knows. There were first reports about Garrett and Leighton back in January, when they were rubbing on each other at some Golden Globes party. Every so often, someone will report that they’re still going at it, but either they key it very, very DL, or it’s just a casual thing where they hookup once a month or something. Plus, I kind of feel like Garrett is trying to get on Kristen Stewart. And K-Stew might be willing.
