Leighton Meester, otherwise known as our role model and spirit guide, recently relocated to Los Angeles to start her post-Gossip Girl life. When she’s not jetting around the world with her former onscreen husband, Ed Westwick, Leighton is frolicking around her new hometown. On January 30, 2013, the brunette actress was spotted grabbing lunch from Hugo’s — wearing a very un-Blair Waldorf outfit of grey Uggs, a knit grey sweater, and black loungewear.
While our Queen B once called a disciplinary hearing at St. Constance when a minion wore leggings as pants, Leighton’s offscreen wardrobe doesn’t abide by the same rules. We bet Blair would approve of the vintage Ray Bans and borderline-grandma chic purse, though!
While former Gossip Girl costar Blake Lively is laying low and enjoying her newly-married life, Leighton hasn’t stopped working since GG wrapped. According to her IMDb profile, Leighton just finished filming mobster flick God Only Knows, and is now working on Any Tom, Dick, or Harry.
