Leighton Meester Gets Blunt Bangs. Earlier this week Leighton at the HTC Serves Up NYC Product Launch Event, debuted beafutiufl stylish blunt bangs. If you didn't already know, blunt bangs are a hot trend this fall season, and Meester is the latest celeb to join the trend. To make her bangs really pop, the star also followed the retro trend by lining her eyes with a thick winged black liner and pared it was soft rosy cheeks. I'm loving this look on her, and even though she's worn bangs before, it's nice to see her go back to a look that really works for her. Look below to see her new blunt bangs cut.
