    she has such great skin.
    this is what a woman should look like (:

  • k

    I totally agree! Her body is thin but still womanly…basically to die for! Also I lover her adventurous fashions. Love it or hate it she is never boring.

  • Tereasa

    She is cute but not gorgeous at all .She is so common.
    And I have seen her without make up ,so scared and ugly
    But girl can act

  • Tereasa

    And she looks like Rachel Bilson but uglier than Rachel

  • Lucy

    Ok, seriously. Girl needs to fire her stylist. She never looks right.

  • Mia

    I love how her fans call her gorgeous and Blake Lively just average… I think they have that mixed up.

  • sara

    ^^^^ hahah those who commented above are sooooo jealous. It is so clear. Respect your self and learn how to comment well even if you don’t like what you see, you don’t need to hurt others or criticize sharply. Remember yourself, you are not perfect at all.

  • Tereasa

    I am not jealous,wake up please.
    She is common ,if she becomes her natural hair color she is ewwwwwwwwww,ugly
    She has acting skill that is good for her ,girl is so down to earth.
    At least she is more interesting and clever than her costar Blonde Bomdshell,but who not?That girl can not act at all

  • Tereasa

    I went to Asia a few weeks ago,I could see tons of girls looked like Leighton Meester on the street,it’s so weird.

  • lill


    I Live in Asia ! But I have never seen girls looked like leighton ??!!

    leighton rocks .. love her ..go leighton <3

  • tealeaf

    I like her dress

  • Tiffany

    Her skin is flawless, and she has the perfect features for a woman.

  • Khristi

    I love her dress

  • caduca

    “Her skin is flawless, and she has the perfect features for a woman.”


  • chef de Vestes de Cuisine

    Dress by Pallack?

  • athena

    Is it just me or does Eric Daman look like Jessica Biel with facial hair?

  • jen

    She’s definitely a pretty girl, but in my opinion she can’t pull off these fashion “risks” that she seems to be trying to go for all the time now. But she’s still very pretty and I wish I could her flawless skin like her.

  • Melody Swift

    Thats really cool. I want to buy the book and dress like Upper east siders!

  • b

    She’s a natural beauty and friggin gorgeous in person.

    I met her twice in New York wearing jeans with no makeups on and she looked damn good. And when I say no, I mean really no. Not a hint of drop of makeups.

    Anyway. I think she looks best that way. I don’t think she can pull all the acid red lip / heavy smoky eye things.

    Blake, on the other hand, looked sexy as hell when I first saw her. She’s wearing very short shorts and some top with very low neckline. I was bombarded with her boobs, her hips, her legs and her hair. The last thing I noticed was actually her face. It was just so blah and goofy I don’t even know how to say it. She’s not ugly. It’s just that she’s not pretty either.

    I think she came across looking fine because she’s really processed. (if you know what I mean)

  • Mia

    Blakes face was “blah and goofy”??? Ya ok, whatever you say….

  • lol

    I think Blake and Leighton are cute but LMFAO @ the flawless skin etc comments. They are 22 and 23 years old. Unless they are crackwhores (they arenot) they should still look good without makeup. That is not hard at that age. I want to see them at 33.

  • lol

    Leighton looks like Julianne Moore in these pics.

  • Cher

    Both leighton and blake are gorgeous. stop comparing them, they are two different people.

  • jack o’malley

    what made Eric Daman state recently that “sex is better than Ritalin”? Seems that there is some incongruent experience that makes Eric the new spokesman for this widely used medication. I believe Mr.Damen in his use of methylphenidate hcl, which his doctor had prescribed for him ,or mis-use ; either in quantity or source, resulted in a case of paroxsysmal ED or sudden “failure to launch”, (lasted three days,huh?) So it now makes sense why the either/or label. Mr.Damen you don’t need ritalin , some of us do. You may use it to assist, along with caffeine,gingko,tyrosine,phosphatydil serine,Pro-vigil or deep-knee bends in starting your work day. Did you have a “no babe, it’s me not you” weekend? If I am all wrong about that , why pick Ritalin for that toss-up? Join the many, who claim its a sustitute tool for aberrant behavior in the classroom ?This is often lumped in with disruptive behavior . Both take up precious time of our outnumbered teaching staff. If that topic was synaptically linked to an activity requiring all kinds of maturity , please , check it out with a professional.One only wants to be on a certain list if it portends the finest meats , cheeses ,and a bit of the grape , all soaked with jocularity and song.
    My abrasive tone , seemingly uncalled for ,is directed at your ignorance and irresponsibility . Congratulations on your big night out , seriously . I ,haven’t been called a metrosexual in a while. Hopefully there’s a new term I am unaware of , or I need a lot of work . Point being , your book sounds like it has a motivating tone .Confidence as the result of self awareness can be lasting. If it results from other-awareness , can it last through next months issue or next seasons start.
    Wearing clothes with bad “feng/shui” is assaultive to anyone your interacting for more than eight seconds , tops . If your doppio is a little twisted , there’s another ‘bucks down the street . Twist an interview , you might not be inside Dunkie’s for a while , or worse , you will be .
    The point of this mirade is , you knew you would be heard last night and quoted for the eye-popper or jaw-dropper. You knew or should have known that quips on your opinion of the trend toward the episode including a threesome would be the banner comment . Where did Ritalin pop into your thoughts . There is a segment of the population that need the ADD meds and use them to better their potential . Also , there is a segment that need but don’t get the meds , because of associated stigma(s).Reportedly , up to 20% of those with chronic substance abuse are those with undiagnosed ADD and untreated ADD resulting in unrealized potential of the candidate , and the ten people closest to them . If one kid reads this and blows off Monday mornings Ritalin , Concerta, Adderall or the like , because you created an idea that it’s one or the other , would be criminal as well as tragic . You would be beyond na’ive to think this wouldn’t happen once or twice, even over the weekend. If it “came out of the blue , then your mouth , damage control is already a day late. Anything else and apologizing is a small step that should be followed immediately with explanations.

    I think Blake is more beautiful ,but Leighton is much more intersting .
    Blake is just so boring

  • Kate

    She looks great and is naturally beautiful. I don’t care what anyone says Blake is so average looking, boring and has to show her boobs to get attention. She wears things that are safe. Leighton takes risks. She is also way more talented than the majority of GG casts.
