I adore this picture of Leighton. It's quite old but I think she looks STUNNING and her features look exaggerated to make her look like a mythological nymph or one of Titania's fairies from A Midsummer Night's Dream or a beautiful alien sent down from earth for us to admire.

I LOVE fashion editorials but its not just the clothes that make them intriguing...it's the model too. Over the years I've had a regular subscription to Vogue and occasionally I buy ELLE and US imports like Nylon, Teen Vogue and American Vogue (which is not nealy as good as British Vogue tbh) so I've become familar with a a few faces. Anyway there are some models who are chameleons and are one minute a 40's screen siren exhaling plumes of smoke from a long cigarette holder and the next they're a grungy, leather-clad beauty queen smashing the shit out of a fender; then there are the models who embody a certain feature or look (kind of like Derek Zoolander-but in a good way). Here are some of my favourites...Lara Stone:
How many models can make gap-toothed sexy?
Amazing curves and a portrait face
A Dollface. A total Russian doll.
How many people can look THAT elegant on a bus?
limb-y, athletic and killer cheekbones
Gemma Ward look-a-like with an upside-down smile
An English Rose with Bee Stung lips
To get a taste of their music here's a video I found on Youtube about my favourite Gossip Girl, Blair Waldorf. The song "Bang Bang Bang Bang" fits perfectly to show her sexy side and her vulnerable side.
