Leighton Meester Lightens Up Her Locks: Love It or Hate It?

Anthony/Pacific Coast News

Gossip Girl‘s Queen Bee Leighton Meester might be known for her brown hair, but today in L.A. the actress showed off a buzz-worthy new honey blonde style. While it took us by surprise at first, we did remember that Leighton is actually a natural blonde who went brunette for her role in the hit show — so unlike Kim Kardashian, she’s returning to her true roots! Tell us: Do you prefer Leighton as a blonde, or should she go back to brunette?

personally , she’s prettier as a brunette i think –> but this lighter look is more summer-y and she can do whatever she likes its her hair!

better as a brunette!!

Leighton is so beautiful…I love her hair either way. I have to admit though, Queen Bee looks better as a brunette.

I realize shes a natural blonde, but she looks much more beautiful as a deep brunette. It fits her complexion much better and makes her stand out in a crowd. The blonde just doesn’t do her justice.

This is her natural hair color. She dyed her hair for the part of Blair

Elizabeth on

She dyed it to be on GG, and I’ve seen her with blonde hair before, so I love her look as a blonde!

Jenn on

I think she looks much better brunette!

tasha on

her facial features come out more as a brunette, the new color is nice but makes her look pale.

Lana on

She is pretty but I highly doubt it that she is a natural blonde…simply bcz the blonde washes her out…if you’re a natural, it should look that way. Plus I saw pictures of her as a blonde and she had roots. Just saying :)
