Leighton Meester’s Sequined Dress For MTV VMAs 2009

  • Pin it

I’m sooo getting my gossip fix with this! Leighton Meester’s sequined mini dress for the 2009 edition of MTV’s Video Music Awards had me all neutral. Then I lowered my eyes and saw the..ummm..shoes?

I’m not afraid to admit I like some freaky outfit combos from time to time, but Leighton is a Fashion Disaster Regular! Taking chances with a dress and pairing it with bold shoes is a fashion statement. What Leighton Meester showed us on MTV’s VMAs Red Carpet was a fashion misstep. (the story continues after the jump with more images)

I know some will see it as a major style statement, I see it as a Captain Molecule appearance. The futuristic sequined mini dress by Christian Cota could have ended happily with another pair of shoes. The white Zanotti pair worn by Leighton have a strange effect on me. Something I could only compare with scratching nails on (old school fashion) chalkboards. (and where that heavy eye makeup fits in?)

What shoes would you have matched with that Christian Cota mini dress worn by Leighton Meester for MTV’s 2009 VMAs? (photos via)

The simple metallic Loubs are fine. Don’t let the shoes kill the look.

The big dealio here is that because she is on that show “Gossip Girl” (she is on that is she not?) she considers her self a fashion plate/icon. OH HELL TO THE NO she is! :P
The dress is cute but the shoes she as paired it with are dire, and look like something from an 80’s film fashion montage.
I would have chosen the Grant Silk Satin Jimmy Choo shoe for the dress as the contrasting colour of the shoe is a foil to the dress.
The Grant Silk Satin peep toe shoe by Jimmy Choo is lovely I think. But it I would have to see the dress and shoe together in person to make a final choice.

whoa, Ellington, those Jimmy Choos really bring a world of class to this outfit! (yup, she’s a Gossip one, alright!) Not to mention they would go far better with her sweet features! They should teach her her limits, fierce is not for everyone…

Daydreamer, you’re right, just like Ellington, you chose something that would have brought class to the dress, not kill it the way those white Zanotti did!

I don’t like the dress either…..so…..but that Jimmy Choo shoes are gorgeous.
Zanotti’s are great or awful. There seems nothing in between?

What do we know, girls! the fash-mighty: here proclaiming just how stylish and uber fashionable Leighton really was! we’re having it soooo wrong! (if the Fash gods say it’s snowing in bright August, then it must be it, right? Just like those high heels Baptiste was photographed with!)

Thank you for visiting my blog!

I am not a Gossip Girls fan, but I have to disagree on this – I think that combo is crazy cool. However at the same time I can see your point, how a simpler shoe would have been more classy. That Jimmy Choo would’ve been a good choice.

I know this is an old post but it’s the first thing that caught my eye…! :)
