Spotted. “Gossip Girls'” Leighton Meester depositing a huge pay check. Page Six is reporting the gorgeous brunette just signed a deal with Vera Wang to be the face of her next fragrance. Meester is reportedly raking in a sweet $3 million for the two-year contract. Ka-ching. Personally, I think she’s worth every penny. While her “Gossip Girl” co-star, Blake Lively, is sex on heels, Meester’s classic fines features make her an ideal pitchwoman for Vera Wang. She’s absolutely breathtaking.
Photographer Carter Smith shot Leighton this past weekend in Manhattan for the ad campaign. I can’t wait to see the pics. Unfortunately, I’ll have to wait, since the ads for Vera Wang’s yet-to-be-named fragrance won’t launch in magazines til next spring with the product hitting stores in summer 2011.
This won’t be Leighton’s first beauty contract. In the spring, she signed on to be the spokesperson SLASH Global Hair Ambassador (whatever that means) for Herbal Essences. So while Lively is busy working her stuff out on red carpets everywhere, and Taylor Momsen is shopping at Hot Topic, Leighton is scoring some major deals. Her star power will on increase when she appears in Gwyneth Paltrow’s film, “Country Strong” later this year.
Simply STUNNING. Taken out of context, it looks like a Cover Girl ad on ANTM.
Here’s an outtake taken by paps on the scene. Love the burgundy dress
