Leighton Meester, formerly of Gossip Girl fame, turns 27 today.
Happy birthday to the beautiful actress and musician!
The star, who recently started dating Adam Brody to complete one of our favorite couples, is a perennial candidate for any Most Beautiful People list.
She's also a solid actress, not that you'd know it from the last few seasons of Gossip Girl. Goodness did that show ever decline. Like to a stunning degree.
April 9 rules!
