Leighton Meester’s Balmain work blazer

By  |  2 Comments

Did you watch this week’s episode of Gossip Girl? On episode 15 of the hit TV series’ fourth season, Leighton Meester’s character Blair Waldorf wore a stunning gilt blazer from Balmain’s FW 2010 collection on a workday at culture and society magazine W.

Matching it with a Diane von Furstenberg top and Stella McCartney work pants, Leighton looked like she meant business without sacrificing style. More career women should dress up like Blair, no?

This double-breasted number offers a more subdued look than Halle Berry’s brocade suit by the high fashion house, and therefore could be easily paired with plain dark trousers and a nude blouse. Can you imagine pulling off this look? Maybe not on a sunny day, as you don’t want to be all shiny and sparkley while walking your way to the office building.
