As I'm writing this, the hot gossip on the internet is that Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester has just become engaged to Gossip Girl castmate Sebastian Stan, who played bad boy Carter Baizen in several season one episodes. Well, at least according to that pinnacle of accuracy New York Post's Page Six. The timing's so perfect, with Gossip Girl being on break until early January, that I can't help but think that this is some kind of publicist-induced leak. Either way, this is definitely going to be the week-o-Leighton. So, let's take a moment to consider one of Leighton Meester's recent fashion escapades in honor of the deluge of LM gossip.
Earl Jean "Lady Skinny" Jean

Leighton was recently snapped at charity event wearing super dark skinny jeans and a gorgeous deep blue blazer. While skinny jeans are less than forgiving on us non-starlets, going with a super dark wash does up the wearability factor. Want to rock a pair of deep, dark skinny jeans just like Leighton's? She's wearing the "Lady Skinny" Jean from Earl Jean (right).
Earl Jean is one of the old timers of the designer denim circuit-- I purchased my first pair of Earl Jeans via special order from Neiman Marcus way back in 2000, and they cost a whole lot more than $78! Even back then, Earl Jean was known for their amazing dark washes and super slim fit. These brand new "Lady Skinny" jeans work Earl Jean's best attributes perfectly.
