Leighton Meester Looking to Edge into “High-End” Fashion Market


As rumors swirl that the Gossip Girl brunette is the soon-to-be-announced face of Missoni, a source tells E! that the actress wants to be "high-end like Blake."

With her co-star, Blake Lively, boasting a new Chanel campaign, it should come as no surprise that the fashion-forward Meester would be looking to break into the fashion market in a big way. Though her red carpet appearances are sometimes hit-or-miss, they're always eye-catching, and she's made a point to boost her profile at New York Fashion Week and other out-and-about style functions. (Her wearing a black sheer lace Marchesa jumpsuit to a Harry Winston party is likely the most obvious example of her recent fashion headline-generating appearances.)

The E! report not only positions the actress in seeming competiion with her "high-end" costar, it also claims to confirm the reports that Meester will, indeed, become the face of Missoni.
