While browsing editorials from the April issue of Lucky magazine, I stumbled upon an editorial that I found very peculiar. Titled, “The Good Life,” the shoot follows around a young socialite as she ventures around the city in trendy clothes. Sound familiar? That’s because this editorial and the model are a little too similar to Gossip Girl and elite Upper East Sider, Blair Waldorf.
Known in real life as Leighton Meester, the actress hasn’t appeared in the magazine since 2008 when she graced the cover. With this shoot being uber GG inspired, I’m left wondering, was Leighton too busy to pose with Lucky? The answer is probably yes. With a Missoni ad campaign, a movie (albeit a bad one- The Roommate), and a busy New York Fashion Week schedule, the starlet has a lot going on. Regardless, that’s no excuse for Lucky to use this Blair Waldorf impersonator…they should’ve held out for the real thing.
