Leighton Meester likes relaxed look

Leighton Meester has been taking a more "relaxed" approach to her appearance since moving from Los Angeles to New York.

The 25-year-old starlet is best known for her role as Park Avenue Princess Blair Waldorf in hit show Gossip Girl. Like her onscreen character, Leighton is famed for her glossy locks and perfectly made-up features.

The brunette beauty has insisted that since moving to New York her attitude to beauty has completely changed.

"When I lived in LA, I would go all-out with my make up, but since I've been working in New York I'm more relaxed. In fact, I barely wear any and don't really do my hair," she told British magazine Company.

"It's partly the NY vibe and partly about growing up."

Since rising to fame in Gossip Girl, Leighton has appeared in a number of films including thriller The Roomate with Minka Kelly, which shows a darker, more edgy side to the actress. Obviously moving away from her typical glamorous roles has encouraged Leighton to embrace what she was born with.

"I think it's more chic to be natural," she revealed.
