I was so caught up with the best and worst of Golden Globes fashion, I didn’t notice all of the fabulous dresses at the Art of Elysium Heaven Gala the night before. To my delight, I saw photos of Leighton Meester wearing my favorite dress from the Louis Vuitton spring 2011 collection. How does she match up to the runway look? Time for judgment and the Red Carpet Report Card.

Red Carpet Report Card: Leighton Meester in Louis Vuitton

This beaded, flapper-era dress from the Louis Vuitton Spring 2011 collection received my highest praises. No only did Leighton wear perhaps my favorite frock from this season, she looked amazing in it. Let’s take a look at the runway shot:

Obviously, model Christina Kruse is taller than Leighton, so the dress hits her above the ankles. This could also be an illusion because she’s walking, and the weight of the beads brings the dress up with her movements. I think this dress works for Leighton‘s petite figure quite nicely.

Leighton‘s hair and makeup is softer than it was on the runway, and I think she made a good choice, avoiding the possibility of looking too costume-y. I love the blue Roger Vivier satin sandals she chose, and the Louis Vuitton bag, also from the spring 2011 collection, is cute. I think a solid bag would have been chicer, but the flowers go along with Leighton‘s bold sense of style, so I respect her choice. Grade?

A

Yes! I knew she could wear something fun and fabulous and look beyond amazing on the red carpet.
