Actress pays homage to children’s movie ‘Matilda’

Leighton Meester, who starred for years as Blair from “Gossip Girl,” is back in the spotlight, and we couldn’t be more excited about it.

The singer and actress has designed her very first fashion collaboration, and it’s inspired by one of our childhood favorite movies, “Matilda.” Leighton recently teamed up with Los Angeles-based sustainable fashion brand, Christy Dawn, to create a jumpsuit inspired by Matilda’s Miss Honey, the lovable teacher who helped save Matilda from her family.

She also stated that while Miss Honey served as the inspiration, the idea for the jumpsuit also came from her experience both as a mom and as a shopper who greatly cares about where her clothing comes from.

Miss Honey served as an inspiration due to her flattering, sweet style, and Leighton chose a jumper over a dress because “it’s a silhouette she reaches for more often now” as she raises three-year-old daughter, Arlo Day, with her husband, Adam Brody. You can purchase it yourself for $308 on Christy Dawn’s website. There are three colors to choose from.
