Baby Brody on board! Leighton Meester and Adam Brody are expecting their first baby together. So in celebration, we’re looking back at some of the gorgeous actress’s best looks. Though, we don’t think she’s ever looked more radiant.

First Blair Waldorf and Seth Cohen blew all of our minds by getting married and thus bringing together two of the sassiest, most well-loved teen drama TV characters of all time. And then the two stepped out this week debuting Leighton’s growing bump and glowing smile. We mean… Can it get any better than this?!

While Meester’s iconic Gossip Girl character is known for her love of headbands, bows, and tiaras (remember when she was royalty?), the real-life fashion-meister is much more laid back, rocking casual looks with fresh-faced beauty making it easy for you to steal her style.

Simple Sophistication

Stealing a page from Blair’s style guide (minus the headbands), Leighton can rock a polished look with ease. She routinely opts for statement trousers, structured tops, and a bold shoe instead of the typical red carpet cocktail dress. Like the time she embraced leather, or that time she was feeling blue, or even the time floral was her pattern of choice. To get the look, we suggest a spending spree at Soñador boutique where you’ll find the daring duds of your dreams.


Easy Breezy

Ms. Waldorf may roll her eyes at Leighton’s go-to cozy sweater and chunky scarf combo, but we’re obsessed with her polished take on boho style. Whether she dresses down a cocktail dress with a belted cardigan, or dresses up her street style ensemble with glam sunglasses and a structured hat, the former Gossip Girl star knows how to work a casual look. Madison in LA stocks all the pieces you need to steal her effortless style, from Rag & Bone booties, to “don’t look at me” shades and fuzzy sweaters galore. Prepare your gift cards for major spending.


Waves for Days

Admit it, you’ve spent hours in front of the mirror trying to make your clean, smooth hair look a bit messier in that “I-just-woke-up-but-my-bedhead-just-so-happens-to-look-this-luscious-and-perfectly-wavy” way Leighton seems to have mastered. The style icon knows how to make a casual look a bit more polished with a shiny blowout, and how to take an ultra-glam frock from stuffy to effortless with a middle part and loose waves. Well, put down that shine serum and step away from the blow dryer, because with a salon gift card to Goldplaited blowdry bar in Chicago, you too can exude the au-naturale vibe of Leighton’s locks.


That Glow, Though

Leighton’s secret to a flawless look? That smooth, dewy, and oh-so radiant complexion of hers. Whether she’s at a premier, attending a fashion show, or traipsing through the airport, Ms. Meester always looks positively glowy. (Try not to think about the added glow of her pregnancy). To get the look, use your spa gift card at Face Haus and treat yourself to a Baby Face facial to hydrate and firm that skin… We think it’s appropriate for the celebration.
