Leighton Meester was making like a real life socialite at the opening night of La Fille du RÃ©giment at the Metropolitan Opera in NYC in a dress that is a color I might not usually champion, but I feel like she’s got the skin tone and the lipstick to pull it off. She missed out on last night’s episode of Gossip Girl, in which her character, Blair, was knocked out of her status as top bitch when it was revealed to her peers that she had been hit with a pregnancy scare after sleeping with Chuck.
Meester talked to Us Weekly about her hopes for her character’s development, “I want the bitch to come back right now.” She added, “I think she has to claw her way back up to the top.” Well, she was rubbing elbows with one of the best of them, with Naomi Campbell showing up at the event after being subdued with elephant tranquilizers and agreeing to wear an invisible muzzle, so she wouldn’t be tempted to bite or spit anyone. Leighton should be taking notes.
