Leighton Meester Lightens Up Her Locks: Love It or Hate It?

Anthony/Pacific Coast News

Gossip Girl‘s Queen Bee Leighton Meester might be known for her brown hair, but today in L.A. the actress showed off a buzz-worthy new honey blonde style. While it took us by surprise at first, we did remember that Leighton is actually a natural blonde who went brunette for her role in the hit show — so unlike Kim Kardashian, she’s returning to her true roots! Tell us: Do you prefer Leighton as a blonde, or should she go back to brunette?

she’s originally a blond! she had to dye it brown for the part. i guess since they’re on summer break she didnt want to maintain it so she died it back…

Just what Hollywood needs…another blonde starlet. She looked much better as a brunette!

I don’t care if it’s natural, that blonde washes her out AND ages her. Ew ew ew.


when leighton was brunette it suited her devious Queen bee ways but as her character changes a little i guess the color change was made to balance it out
