Spotted: Gossip Girl’s Blair Waldorf in her blondest moment yet!

It’s been more than half a decade since the last episode of Gossip Girl aired, and we’d be lying if we said we didn’t miss the scandalous lives of Manhattan’s elite. Luckily, we were greeted this morning with the news of Leighton Meester’s major transformation—and might we add, you’ve never seen Blair Waldorf like this before.

Yup, that’s right—Upper East Side's proverbial Queen B has been spotted having her blondest moment yet!

It’s no secret that Leighton had dyed her hair chestnut brown for her now-iconic role as Blair Waldorf. The actress has naturally golden blonde locks, but compared to her most recent hair transformation, it’s safe to say that this is the blondest we’ve seen her thus far. "I had the best time taking [Leighton] from brunette to a vintage Hollywood platinum using the new Keraphix protein treatment to replenish her hair," reveals celebrity hair colorist Aura Friedman.

On her Instagram Stories, Leighton also shared her seven-hour journey to an icy platinum ‘do at the Nexxus New York Hair Salon. “I don’t even feel comfortable saying that I just went blonde. It is a totally different color of hair,” she told PeopleStyle. “But I love it!”

Apart from the dye job, Leighton also got a fresh new haircut to kick off the spring season. She chopped off a few inches and welcomed a chic, shoulder-grazing bob that brings more character to her newly bleached locks. “I’ve had long, natural hair for a long time. The length it got to felt like the exact opposite of what I wanted to go for. I really felt like something that was a stark difference would be invigorating and fun,” she said. “I like to try different things and experiment. So when I wanted to change my hair, I just thought, ‘I should just completely go for it!’”
