Quote of the Day: Before Gossip Girl, Leighton Meester Says She 'Dressed Like a Homeless Person'

“Before the show I dressed like a homeless person. I used to buy everything at garage sales. It was hard to give up! I’d be like, ‘But this crazy sweater is amazing, and it only cost 25 cents!'” --Leighton Meester to Lucky on her thrifty pre-Gossip Girl wardrobe. With Blair Waldorf and the other Upper East Siders (and of course, that lowly Brooklynite Dan) going on a permanent Hamptons holiday after next season--sobbing, btw--will Leighton be returning to her hobo ways?

Heavens no! "I’ve learned from Blair," she says. "Now I like to pepper in something designer with my usual stuff." ...And maybe the occasional headband?
