Battle of the Gossip Girls! Blake Lively vs. Leighton Meester
Who’s the REAL reigning Queen of Gossip Girl?
On their hit CW show Gossip Girl, there’s a constant battle for supremacy between Blake Lively and Leighton Meester’s characters, Serena van der Woodsen and Blair Waldorf, respectively. But in reality, both girls are still duking it out for the title of Queen Bee. But mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the most famous Upper East Sider of them all?
#1 MOVIE STAR STATUS
Both Blake, 23, and Leighton, 24, are smoothly making the transition from TV to the big screen. Blake is earning rave reviews for her role as a tough-talking single mom in Ben Affleck’s The Town and has scored the female lead opposite Ryan Reynolds in The Green Lantern – one of this summer’s most hotly anticipated flicks. Conversely, Leighton also has two movies: she’s currently starring opposite Gwyneth Paltrow in Country Strong as a young country music ingénue, and is playing opposite Friday Night Lights’ Minka Kelly in the upcoming horror movie The Roommate.
WHO WINS: This round goes to Blake! Not only is she the lead in The Green Lantern as opposed to Leighton’s supporting role, but she’s also starring alongside People magazine’s reigning Sexiest Man Alive!
#2 FASHION FACES
These girls clearly aren’t just fashionistas on their show – they’ve both scored plum new gigs to represent different fashion houses! Leighton is starring in a new campaign promoting the high-end Italian brand Missoni and is the face of Vera Wang’s new fragrance. Meanwhile, Blake is designer Karl Lagerfeld’s new muse – as well as the spokesperson for his new line of Chanel Mademoiselle handbags.
WHO WINS: Leighton. Although Blake might be a muse, being the face of two brands is clearly better than one!
