Wow wow wow, Leighton Meester’s new platinum hair colour has seriously brightened up our day. The Gossip Girl star took to her Instagram page to share the exciting beauty news with fans and she got a huge reaction. Leighton looked like a completely different person with her new bleach blonde look – a world away from her normal brunette style. The actress wrote: “@Having a blonde moment Thank you to my hair saviors: @auracoloristand Keraphix protein treatment @NexxusNYSalon #MyNexxusPHIX#NexxusPartner.”

We adore Leighton’s edgy platinum colour and her killer makeup; that bold black eyeliner, bright red lips and bushy brows is an awesome spring look. Anyone else getting Jenny Humphrey vibes? What would Blair say?

It is a totally different color of hair! But I love it!” The star told the publication that she wanted a change from her long, natural hair and fancied a new fun colour. She also revealed that the inspiration for the look came from Hollywood legend Jayne Mansfield.
