Which Hair Color Looks Better on Leighton Meester?

Did you know this blonde shade almost kept Leighton from landing that headbanded part on Gossip Girl? She's known for her darker locks when shooting in New York, but she's taking a West Coast break with her natural hair color. After all, there's more than just the UES, as she's working on an album and filming Date Night with Tina Fey and Steve Carell during her time off from the series. Busy lady. It's hard for me to adjust seeing B. as a blonde, not a brunette, so I've been staring at the shots for a while now. Do you have a preference?

she looks better as brunette, which is weird because she's a natural blonde... it's usually the other way around!

The darker hair goes better with her skin tone - she looks washed out in the blonde.

first of all, I have to start by saying that the second picture of her is just awful - was she actually flipping her hair like that, and, if so, what moron paparazzi shot that?! ok, anyhoo, I actually saw Leighton with her blond hair on a couple episodes of House before Gossip Girl. I remember thinking she was gorgeous and having no problem with the blond hair. then, when GG began, I looked her up to remind myself where I had seen her before and I put two and two together. so I can unbiasedly say that she looks so much more beautiful and sophisticated with brown hair. I like either style that she's had in the last two years - the darker, more full and the lighter with blond highlights. either way, she must remain a brunette...

Gotta say brunette, although she doesn't look so bad as a blonde. Hard to believe she's a natural blonde...

i have only ever seen pictures of her as a blonde when she was not made up and i always prefer the brunette, though to be fair she is always made up in those pictures. she is such a striking brunette girl though!

I wouldn't say that Leighton looked "stupid" with blonde hair considering that's her natural hair color and that's not a fair thing to say, but her as a brunette really seems to suit her.

I think with the blonde hair she looks average and I wouldn't look twice at her on the street, but the brown hair brings out the beautiful shape of her face and also her brown eyes ;)

remember her on 24 with blonde locks? or house? she just looked so blah and stupid. brunette gives her substance and makes her look smarter.

she's a natural blonde? no way... hat about her eye brows? and her eyes? they're way to dark for her to pull off blonde.

i was originally super-suprised when i heard that she is a natural blonde (months and months ago - doesn't look as good as the brunette, the dark rich shade complements her face better than the blonde which washes her out. maybe a different shade, darker blonde, or maybe cooler?) but the i remembered that winona ryder is ALSO a natural blonde. that was a shocker, so this wasn't quite as, since i had a reference point. both look better with darker hair.

She could work the blonde better with a tan.
