go behind the scenes of leighton meester's cover shoot

as she talks fashion, music, and beauty.

Confession: We've wanted to be best friends with Leighton Meester since she played little Nicki Porter on The WB (RIP) series Tarzan. Years later—after her generation-defining role on Gossip Girl and after starring in cult films like The Roommate and Date Night—Meester is more beautiful and creative than ever with a new album, Heartstringsand a new film, Life Partners
