Newly Married Leighton Meester Goes Makeup-Free in NYC — See Her Barefaced Look!

Leighton Meester knows how to glam it up on the red carpet, but in her day-to-day life, she opts for a more casual style.

The newly married actress was photographed in NYC on Thursday, May 8, as she arrived for a performance of her Broadway play Of Mice & Men. The 28-year-old actress didn’t bother dressing up or putting on mascara — not that we can blame her, seeing as how she was headed straight into costume and makeup!

Three days earlier, Leighton showed a different side of herself when she got glammed up for 2014 MET Ball at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Leighton looked stunning in a plunging gold gown by Pucci and strappy Jimmy Choos, which she finished off with smoky eyes and perfectly tousled locks.

Not surprisingly, Leighton’s former Gossip Girl co-star, Blake Lively, was also in attendance and on the arm of her hunky hubby, Ryan Reynolds. While Leighton didn’t bring her own husband, Adam Brody, to the event, she did walk the red carpet alongside Emilio Pucci artistic director Peter Dundas. (Not a bad date, if you ask us!)
