We love seeing the crew of Gossip Girl work on other projects. After all, it’s good to remember that they can play something other than Upper East Side schemers. Leighton Meester (Blair) latest turn on the big screen has her playing a country singer starlet, and while we can't wait to see her tackle the role, we’re passing the time by tracking Leighton’s red carpet premiere looks. Fittingly, the movie had a premiere in Nashville, but instead of going the denim and cowboy boots route, she wore an eclectic gown that has us conflicted. While we love the Middle Eastern vibe, the prints and patterns are a bit much together. So how can you do this look right? Read on for a wearable version that won’t break the bank!
