Leighton Meester parties like it’s 1975 in ‘Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit’ for the November issue of Flaunt Magazine. Looking like a Walking-Warhol, Meester channels her inner wild-child in this noir-style layout by Yu Tsai. Endowed with an air of YSL elegance, this flawless impersonation captures the severity of style indicative of the Studio 54 era. Behold the second coming of a young Diane von Fürstenberg, a vivid portrayal way past mimicry, this is total transformation. Embarking on a new level of artistic characterization, this layered performance fuses acting and modeling with an inspired take on the art of interpretation. Honoring the decade of decadence, this reminds us of a time when fashion was a full-time show and those who participated were pure artists.
