KATIE CASSIDY: THE NEW STYLE STAR
GOSSIP GIRL actor LEIGHTON MEESTER, who recently expressed interest in starting her own clothing line, already has one customer waiting in the wings: new costar KATIE CASSIDY.
“I’d buy it,” the actor told PEOPLE at W magazine’s September issue celebration at NYC’s SAKS FIFTH AVENUE recently.
“She has really good taste. I think she‘d be a great designer.”
In the meantime, KATIE will continue to admire her castmate’s killer wardrobe: “I’ve seen her closet. It’s pretty amazing. She has some really good clothing.”
Since joining television’s most stylish cast, the former MELROSE PLACE actor has begun to develop some major fashion cred of her own, sitting front row at DIANE VON FURSTENBERG and JASON WU alongside glamour aficionados like DIANE KRUGER during New York Fashion Week.
And it’s paying off: GOSSIP GIRL’S newest star shone at the Saks event in a gold DIANE VON FURSTENBERG shift dress with an Alice + Olivia cardigan. She credited the CW hit for its fashion influence.
“I’m learning about fashion and I find myself knowing more about what I should wear. The whole show is very chic and the clothes are unbelievably beautiful. It’s like a girl’s playground.”
