Leighton Meester was all smiles in her Missoni dress carrying a Proenza Schouler bag as she arrived at an outdoor ice skating rink in Santa Monica yesterday. She was there to support the charity Portraits of Hope as she continues her duties for Herbal Essences. Leighton's currently on a break from filming Gossip Girl as she focuses on her big screen project, Country Strong. It hits theaters on Friday and Leighton recently chatted with us about her love of sweats, humble beginnings, and character's "Country Barbie" look. Her costar Gwyneth Paltrow has also been making the rounds, including a funny hip-hop performance on Fallon. Leighton will continue promoting the movie when she takes the stage as a presenter at the Golden Globes with Garrett Hedlund.
