Meester: I'm all about key pieces

Leighton Meester goes through phases with her style.

The actress-and-singer rose to prominence as Blair Waldorf in Gossip Girl with plenty of fans fawning over the fashion on the show.

While her alter-ego rarely wore the same thing twice, the 29-year-old has a different approach when it comes to selecting outfits.

"Like any other person, I go through phases with my style," she explained to German magazine In.

"But I always have and always will feel most comfortable in my favourite key pieces. I like to mix them up and create new styles."

For fashion inspiration, Leighton looks to the 70s and stars such as Diane Keaton and Stevie Nicks. However, she admits to usually keeping it simple when she has time off and opting for jeans, T-shirts, denim jackets and comfortable sweaters.

With her sense of style and stunning looks, it's no wonder Jimmy Choo snapped Leighton up to star in a campaign. It was one of the most memorable shoots of her life.

"Some of my favourite pictures were taken during that session," she smiled. "The clothes and of course the shoes, sunglasses and bags are wonderful and the atmosphere on set was amazing!"

It seems the advert inspired the star, as she now counts Jimmy Choo shades among her most prized possessions, claiming she wears them "all the time".
