No, you're not dreaming

This IS the same person.

Leighton Meester, aka Upper It Girl Blair Waldorf, circa 2004, and now.

I know. Who'd have guessed such a bland, bad haired girl would turn into such a poised and pretty face? Who'd have guessed such a classy chic girl could have looked banal?

Thank god for makeovers.

EDIT : Seems like she used to have some pretty killer fashion sense as well! I wonder what lucky event in her life made her go from cheesy to Diva? THANK YOU GOSSIP GIRL
While I'm at it, here are some pictures of the awesome Gossip Girl fashion.

Allure a dit…

Wow! She obviously looks better now. But I don't like the hair. It's too "done", too serious. Not appropriate for a young girl.

Sage a dit…

shes so beautiful now..shes better brunette , and her characteristics are more mature!

discothequechic a dit…

ha, that is funny stuff!

and oh how I laughed at the label.. "Pretty Faces now were not necessarily pretty then"

I give it a couple of months before everyone is posting candid snaps of her.

yeahh.

The Clothes Horse a dit…

woah, I am always amazed when people see the potential and then bring it out.

atelier a dit…

She is so beautiful! Today I have seen the first five chapters of Season One (finally, I got them!) and she is very classy, I am surprised by her "then" picture, she looks really banal, as you said, and that look, in the third pic, was terrible... I must say Thanks Gossip Girl for changing her!

ELLE a dit…

Ah I LOVE her hair. Wish mine would curl perfectly like that!

LML a dit…

AMEN! thank you gossip girl!

Camille a dit…

Very nice! She looks much better, her hair is gorgeous!

Miss Woo a dit…

The transformation is shocking, I guess it must take her a while (and Gossip Girl) for her to grow into her own skin..

Also, mucho thanks for the comment, you're too kind!

Iheartfashion a dit…

Wow, what a transformation! She certainly had potential then, but looks SO much better as a brunette.

Jamie a dit…

Holy crap! What a difference a few years make! So funny... Great job on the Gaultier post too, I really adore his work.

Camilla a dit…

WOOOOAAAAHHHH!!!! Steike bananas!
She looks incredible now compared to what she looked like when she was younger. Amazing.

Linda a dit…

wowow you're right, I thought she was a newbie to the entertainment industry...but I guess not? what's she doing getting her photo taken in 2004 for?

The Attire a dit…

muze1990 a dit…

Haha, sneakers are sooo cool! I want a killer pair to rock every outfit with! But hard to get and find..

And I like the last outfit, ofcourse because of the sneakers. But I must be honest, if I look at the pictures it is already totally diffirent to the book..I dunno why. But still a movie where I def go to!

Audrey a dit…

What a little make-up, dye job, and new outfit won't do...*insert whistling smiley face from Roland* LOL
I have never seen an episode of Gossip Girl, even though I read all the books...I really want to watch it, but I am wayyy too late to be caught up. I can't watch TV during the school year. I procrastinate on the computer instead.

Hélène v a dit…

Gossip Girl saved her life. I guess we've all had our rough patches. Her's being patriculary sketchy.
What was she even working on way back in 2004?

molly a dit…

wow!! what a difference
it gives hope for plain people, doesnt it?

Meg a dit…

Hehe! I love that you managed to cut her up and love her at the same time. Only you Boka.

Re: The coat is from Zara, they have it in a searing shocking hot pink as well. The coats in there are hot at the moment!
