While Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) makes staying on the cutting edge of fashion seem effortless, it looks like her real-life counterpart might employ a little assistance! At a cocktail party launching the “Uptown-Downtown” collection of French footwear label Roger Vivier at their Upper East Side store last week, Leighton dished to Fashionista that her personal style is equal parts professional stylist and... frequent peeks at Style.com!

Aww, celebs, they’re just like us!

“I have a stylist who is very helpful,” Leighton said, whilst reportedly eyeing a few of the store’s items! “But I also pay attention and visit Style.com and look at all the shows and things that I like and things that speak to me.”

Hey ― even Blair Waldorf doesn’t exist without a little help! And we can appreciate a girl who gives credit where credit is due, especially when co-star Blake Lively (Serena) famously eschews all things assisted-style.

Leighton also spoke candidly of ― sniff, sniff ― life after Gossip Girl, saying she’s ready for more music and more movies... as well as some gardening and cooking! How refreshingly non-Upper East Side of her, right?
