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?

Blonde! I love that she is trying something new although she’s a natural blonde, I’ve only seen her as a brunette.

She never said that she’s a natural blonde – she said that she couldn’t remember anymore! I think everyone just assumed that she was – because she was blonde before GG.
I think that she’s so beautiful as a brunette – but as a blonde she looks MUCH younger and she’s a different type…

Clay on

Ooh no! She’s so beautiful with the dark hair, I mean normally I prefer blondes but she’s beautiful with the dark hair… I’m just not feeling her as a blonde…

I think she’s prettier as a brunette and that’s what they wanted for her character, with her as a blonde she’s blend in with the other actresses on the show-especially Serena & Jenny.
