Leighton Meester Covers 'Allure' January 2011

Leighton Meester Covers 'Allure' January 2011

Leighton Meester slips into some sexy lingerie and a clear Louis Vuitton raincoat in this hot shot from Allure magazine‘s January 2011 issue, where she graces the cover!

Here’s what the 24-year-old Country Strong actress had to share:

On the Chuck and Blair love affair: “I can really relate to it – not necessarily because it’s this dramatic, tumultuous relationship, but because the way they love each other is very real, and not for the sake of being dramatic. It’s actual love. There’s nobody for each other but them.”

On her former life as a partier: “We had craaaazy parties, we had DJ’s, bands, an ice luge, a fire twirler. One of my roommates burned off her bangs on the stove trying to light a cigarette. I mean, drinking is one thing – overdrinking is another. And drugs are something that I do not tolerate at all. You’d be surprised how many people do it. If you go out and you’re living the nightlife scene, that’s what people do.”

On the supposed rivalry with costar Blake Lively: “It’s unfortunate when women are pitted against each other, like with Sex and the City. People say, ‘They’re jealous of each other.’ Come on! They’re all rich, successful, great actresses.”

On her love life: “It’s wonderful to be in love. And it’s definitely wonderful to cuddle and have sex and get to experience life with somebody. But it’s OK if you don’t find him and you’re 24. You can find it someday.”

  • Jessica


    Because you deserve to be on that cover. You’re SO talented at complaining without any basis for your opinions!

  • Rainforest

    Classless nobody. Is that how she’s planning on gaining faim, talking about sex and wild parties and showing off her crotch for the umpteenth time? She didn’t really answer the question about Blake. Damn well she’s jealous, and she should be.

  • Lany

    she’s so freaking hot! she’s my number 1 girl crush. so what if she partied? that’s normal. dont tell me all you never went on party and get crazy. that’s human.

  • r.

    gorgeous, sexually confident and talented woman. get it gurl.

  • Adrian

    Beautiful! Youu are amazing. : ). love her soooooo much.

  • Kiki


    excuse me. have you ever had a great party? well your life is such a shame. since when people doesnt allow to have party? it’s not like she’s paris hilton go out to party in every night or something. she’s just having a great time!

    and about blake.. personally i think she’s 1000x better than blake. in talent basis.. and she’s more beautiful.

  • Jasmine

    Notice how she didn’t actually answer the question about the supposed Blake Lively rivalry…

    PS-she looks great here. I want that raincoat, haha.

  • maria
  • Jessica


    Aww I’m sorry you have trouble with reading comprehension. First of all, that is not even the whole interview so how in the world are you getting that she hasn’t addressed the question. Second, regarding the snippet that’s posted there, there’s this little thing called inference – google it. Third of all, she’s talking about how overdrinking is not good at the end and how she used to party. And last of all, with the crotch comment (also sorry that you can’t count, by the way – 2nd time in a similar pose is not umpteenth), you’ve pretty much just insulted every high fashion model in the world because I can find that post from everybody.

  • Ash


    Ditto :)

  • Sara

    @Rainforest: and the first commenter.

    Lets see, Leighton is on the cover of Allure being photographed in couture-. She stars in a tv show and is the face of vera wang perfume, herbal essences, and missioni. You are posting comments on gossip blog at 1 in the morning. I wonder, do you really have the right to call someone else a nobody? Just sayin

  • Jen

    Too much photoshop!
    Plus,Gwyneth Paltrow’s the highlight in CS,cant wait !

  • Susan

    She’s pretty and talented. Not a fameho. Jealous much?

  • Jokergurl

    Sounds pretty level headed to me, I like her.

  • andy


    you’re just jealous. i’d kill to have a girl like that. she’s honest about herself and she’s hot.

  • sam

    Leighton is gorgeous and talented. I cant wait to watch Country Strong I’ve heard great things about it.

  • r.


    notice how there’s no question. just a wonderful and wise quote from leighton about tsexism in society and culture. such a goddess you can learn from, jasmine.

  • my thoughts

    She has a lot of potential. I like how she’s trying to be successful without having to use tactics such as being linked to someone of status or people creating a huge hype about her (Blake). If she succeeds, which i hope she does, it will be for the right reasons.

  • Cherie

    She looks good,when her eyebags are photoshped.

    but that raincoat pic is so tasteless,she loves to widespread her legs for mags eeww¡

  • Anna

    She isn’t that pretty and this photoshoot is trashy and awkward.

  • Ana

    The most overrated young actress out there. Mediocre looks and mediocre talent.

    This photoshoot is trashy and awkward. She looks terrible.

  • Susan


    Most overrated? I don’t think so.

  • harry


    she’s wonderful person and she’s talented. if anyone who’s overrated it’s blake.

  • mel

    @Ana: your entire post is invalid!!!

  • Zukayi

    Talentless??? ow please…she’s not the greatest actrerss but definitely not bad! We all start somewhere. At first we suck at our jobs but with time, our confidence improve thus our performance i.e. we get good at what we do. Same as actors!
    So all cut the poor girl some slack!!!!!!!!!!!

  • johnny rockets

    ugly photo, ugly body

  • beachbum10

    leighton is one of the most talented actresses of today. love everything about her. can’t wait to see her on country strong. i’ve heard great reviews on her performance, which is no surprise!

  • Jasmine

    @r.: This is an excerpt with select comments from her interview. I would assume there was a question or insinuation made within the actual allure interview that she was responding to. You complete dipsh-t.

  • http://Tj Slig^_^

    Why she cry maybe want sex

  • http://Tj Slig^_^

    Better go go sleep

  • Kaz simply amazing ! Pretty!!!!!!!

    As alwayes wried looks

    1 in the morning? LMFAO. Not everyone lives in the same time zone as you. It’s 2PM here. And you don’t know me. I could be a CEO of something big. I could be Steve Jobs. Succesful people like relief too, you know. So spare me your comments.

    This isn’t the second time she poses with her crotch for the whole world to see. Someone said I insulted all the topmodels but that is not true. Usually when models pose with their crotches (I don’t know how else to say), it’s functual. Like they are showing bikinis or underwear. Leighton posing in her underwear is a call for attention. There is no need to.

    You calling her beautiful is your opinion. I think the bags under her eyes and her enormous forehead are a big turn-off. And jealous Leighton fans calling Blake a famwhore: laughing my ass off. You KNOW you would like it if Leighton got the exact same attention, but you woudn’t call her a famewhore. Double standards much. And people calling Leighton talented should really watch her other work, where she acts EXACTLY the same as on Gossip Girl. Is that talent?I know its hard for you to believe, but Blake is more talented, and I’m really saying this in all honesty. She was brilliant in Pippa Lee, Elvis & Anabelle and The Town. Calling Leighton talented based on only Gossip Girl is an easy shot. Just watch some of their other works and then come back to argue. There is a reason why Blake is more famous and that is because she is an incredible actress, a gorgeous woman, a good rolemodel with a fantastic sense for fashion.

  • carine

    i love everything about leighton! even this photoshoot:)

  • Sara


    Ah, so your hateful comments stem from being a lively fan girl- makes everything so clear. Everyone is entitled to their opinion.

    But being tall and blonde with implants and a nosejob doesn’t make you a good actress. If you can’t pull of gossip girl then there’s a problem.

  • Paul


    I agree with Sara. Leightons doing big things, makes people jealous. And it’s obvious you are not a CEO. Your use of lmfao in caps clearly indicates that you are most likely a 12-18 year old girl. I don’t know any adults that use that lingo in caps ( and the smart ass response that will surely follow =further evidence you are a teenager)

  • Gab

    She looks so good here. Of all the cast of Gossip Girl, she strikes me as the only one with real talent. Although of course Lively is the one with the real prospects.

  • Barcelona

    I like Leighton, she’s talented and gorgeous. ITA beachbum10: I’ve heard great reviews on her performance too, which is NO SURPRISE!

  • coolcat

    yay another magazine cover for leighton! im definitely gonna get a copy! love love love her!!!

  • dawn


  • yop

    She´s hot

  • Sarah

    love her

  • reletn

    I think she is the epitome of a plain jane american looking girl. bug eyes,structureless face, she is blah. she has a major lisp going on too, LOL. and no I dont like Blake either. I am not into the tween girl vs. girl games. Just stating my opinion. Come to America. mouse brown average height/weight girls like this literally EVERYWHERE. She is not Blair. she is Leighton; a plain jane girl with a lisp.

  • gg fan

    oh my talented and beautiful queen!

  • Tomorrow

    Does she ever wear clothes in her photo shoots. She screams desperate to me.
