The Craziest ‘Do We Saw at Fashion Week: Vera Wang’s Hair Turbans

Talk about a model’s worst nightmare to brush out!

Finally! Vera Wang’s Lovestruck perfume commercial, featuring Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester, was just released today. Ever since seeing stunning images of the starlet from the campaign, we’ve been waiting with baited breath for this video. The fragrance, a combination of pink guava, tuberose, angelica blossom and sheer musk notes, was inspired by Shakespeare’s most-famous romantic tradegy, so it’s no surprise that this clip is like a modern-day version of Juliet waiting for Romeo—but instead of being perched on a balcony, she’s on a fire escape. Ah, the romance.

Perhaps more striking than the chemistry between the actress and male model Tommy Dunn is the gorgeous rose-colored gown she wears, a Vera Wang creation, of course. This ad is just the first part of Meester’s two-year, and estimated $3 million, contract with the label (wow!), so we’re hoping that there are plenty more damsel-in-a-dress campaigns just like this one in the works.
