Leighton Meester, the devilishly evil Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl, has been announced as the new face of Vera Wang’s fragrance that is to be released in the middle of next year.

So why does Leighton get this awesome gig?  Well according to Vera it’s because her

“beauty, talent and spirit will inspire all the young women that I hope will enjoy this passionate, new young fragrance.”


At the same time co-star Blake Lively is rubbing shoulders with the A-listers after she was spotted having dinner with none other than Leo DiCaprio (ouch on Penn Badgley’s behalf) and “bad girl” Taylor Momsen continues with her rock star concerts.

Has anyone else noticed that while the girls are doing something with their careers the boys from Gossip Girl are well…not?
