Celebrity editorials in magazines are usually about as exciting as stale bread. They’re not bad, per se, but they somehow never live up to their expectations. That said, when we saw these images from Leighton Meester’s spread in the November issue of UK Marie Claire, we stopped, stared, and then sent the link around to everyone on our chat list with the question, “Are these the most beautiful photos you’ve ever seen?” And the answer, resoundingly, was yes.
Of course, we (and apparently everyone on our chat list) are prone to exaggeration, but the fact remains: Ms. Meester looks gorgeous. The images are warm, visually stunning, and a work of art. If we were Meester, we’d have these blown up and put on our walls ASAP. If you’re interested, there’s behind-the-scenes video of the shoot where you can watch Meester flip her hair around and talk Herbal Essences, but the photos are where all the magic happens.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
