Leighton Meester might be our new favorite style star. While we love the fact that she’s not afraid to take risks on the red carpet, it seems like her choices over the last few months have become more and more spot on — though no less surprising. On Sunday, the new face of Missoni stepped out in a leather cutout dress from Michael Kors‘ 2011 Pre-Fall collection.
Meester kept the look super minimalist with zero jewelry, subtle, if smokey makeup, and stick straight hair. We’re absolutely loving this look — and loving the way she’s embraced both the leather and minimalist trend without looking like she’s trying to hard. But what do you think?
(For comparison purposes, check out Kate Bosworth’s leather look by Chloe. The sheer tights / overwrought heels are throwing us off. Too much!)
