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?

She looks better as brunette!

Leighten Meester’s looks were transformed when she went brunette – like a true icon that could rival Audrey Hepburn or Jackie O. Now with this out-of-a-box honey blonde disaster she’s got going on, she looks like she went from Park Avenue to White Trash. I’ve seen older pics of her with that tragic haircolor and it’s so unattractive on her. Gossip Girl is the best thing that ever happened to her. She should have stuck with it the brown.

I DONT CARE WHAT HAIR COLOR LEIGHTON HAS SHE LOOKS GOOD AS A BLOND WHICH IS HER NATURAL COLOR AND AS A BRUNETTE EITHER WAY THE GIRL LOOKS GOOD IF SHE IS A BLONDE OR A BRUNETTE!

I prefer her with dark locks.

Leighton really wasn’t a “natural blonde” before Gossip Girl, she just had a habit of always dying her hair blonde. I think with her brown eyes and brown eyebrows, her natural shade of brown hair is more flattering.

She is georgous regardless of what hair color SHE chooses. She has an album coming out soon so maybe she changed it for a video shoot or something.

BRUNETTE, definitely!

Tamara on

I think Leighton generally looks better as a brunette with her dark eyes and gorgeous pale complextion. That being said, I’m naturally a brunette and also love lightening up for the summer and I think this is a nice change for her while she’s not filming GG. She’s fortunate she can pull off both colors beautifully.

Love it!!! She is beautiful either way.
