Leighton Marissa Meester was born on April 9, 1986 in Fort Worth, Texas. She began her career as a model, working with then-photographer (now filmmaker) Sofia Coppola and booking a Ralph Lauren campaign shot. She made her television debut in the TV series Law & Order in 1999.
She then made her first film appearance with 2003’s Hangman’s Curse. Her big break came in 2007 after landing the role of Blair Waldorf in the TV series Gossip Girl, for which she achieved international stardom.
Has Leighton Meester had Plastic Surgery?
Meester’s ravishing appearance was recently questioned when it was suggested that she may have had a nose job before. Critics have pointed out that the Gossip Girl star’s current nose has a more defined tip and a narrower bridge, which was different when she was just starting out in the show business.
According to reports, Meester’s actual nose was wider, lacked refinement and was not elegant-looking. Some experts have also stepped in to give their professional opinion. Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer said: “It looks like Leighton Meester did have a Rhinoplasty giving her a more defined tip and narrower bridge.”
Dr. Paul S. Nassif agreed with Dr. Salzhauer, saying: “Leighton Meester may have had rhinoplasty performed at one point. Her nose appears slightly smaller than it was in earlier photos.” The doctor also commented that the execution of Meester’s procedure was conservative and that the result was really good.
