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’s special and doll-like as a brunette and just another generic blonde as a blonde!

I personally think she looks better as a brunette, it makes her look prettier. Blonde makes her stand out less. Brown also brings out her natural beauty. Even tho blonde is her nat. hair color, brown looks more nat.

Well. Considering that she is a natural Blonde.. i think that the looks seems more Her.
We are all jsut used to seeing her as a brunette thats all, but i admit, Brunette did really suit her too but the Blonde is also awesome!

Why? Personally, I think the blond makes her look washed out.

Definetely brunette!
Maybe some honey blone highlights for the summer with a lighter brown. But she should definetely be a brunette.
