In the past few months alone we’ve seen everyone from Lauren Conrad to Heidi Montag to Rachel Bilson — and even Matthew McConaughey and Luke Wilson — turn instant designer. And now Gossip Girl‘s Leighton Meester reveals that she might just be the next star to test out her design talents. “I love fashion, and sometimes I just feel like if I could only do and make whatever I wanted, it would make so much of a statement and really express who I am,” she says in an interview with NYLON. “So yes, in the future I would love to do a clothing label or work with a clothing label.” And while the star doesn’t have anything definite in the works just yet, it got us thinking about this celeb trend. Tell us: Would you like to see Leighton be the next designing actress? Which of Hollywood’s hottest fashionistas do you think should design a clothing line?

You know what celebrities? Why dont you leave the fashion designing to the designers and artist that go to school for design and worry about your well being and take care of youself some of you take on way too much and some of you end up in rehab in some hick state and strut on stage singing while pregnant. Do you really have to do everything? Enough is enough. Anyway which celebrity/designer does well anyway? Posh? Heidi? Lindsay and her stupid leggings? Go donate your all that free time to charity!
