Now that Leighton Meester and Adam Brody are engaged, we can't help but get excited — it's Blair Waldorf and Seth Cohen! Thanks to their breakout roles on Gossip Girl and The OC, Leighton and Adam have cemented themselves as a match made in teen-drama heaven. Sure, they aren't really their characters, but it's fun to look back at how their onscreen roles may have paved the way for this upcoming union. To celebrate the couple's big news, let's examine why Blair and Seth are perfect for each other, on screen and off.
Leighton Meester and Adam Brody are engaged. The couple, who first went public with their relationship back in February, have yet to directly comment on the news, but multiple outlets are reporting that the two are indeed getting hitched. The pairing appears to be a match made in TV heaven as both Leighton and Adam have earned strong fan followings for their work on teen shows. Adam famously portrayed the adorably emo Seth Cohen on The O.C., while Leighton played Blair Waldorf on Gossip Girl. The two met while working together on the set of the 2011 film The Oranges. Congratulations to the happy couple!
When you think of glamour, chances are a set of red-painted lips come to mind. And why wouldn't they? They're as much of a staple as the little black dress, and beloved by just about every celebrity you can think of. These days, red lipstick is as popular on the red carpet as it is at cocktail parties and after-work drinks — and as these models, actresses and singers show, there's no end to the slightly different iterations out there. Whether it's red with a hint of raspberry (hello, Emmy Rossum at the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards on Monday) or a strong pigment that leans toward orange (like on Amber Heard), it's bold, it's beautiful, it's womanly and it's unstoppable.

Biotherm's International General Manager, Patrick Kullenberg described Leighton as "a contemporary icon, a young star whose natural talent, energy and beauty, have made her the face of a generation". "She’s the perfect expression of Biotherm skincare’s essential values: fresh modernity and natural beauty. She was an obvious choice to represent our brand," he says.
Leighton will make her debut with the brand's next face care campaign that is set to launch early next year. And with her enviable beauty and fresh-looking skin, we couldn't think of a better fit.
The Week in Pictures: Kate's Glamorous Return, Taylor's Aussie Connection, Adam and Leighton & More!
There was a distinct Down Under vibe added to many celebrity events this week — Taylor Swift was snapped looking cosy with Australian actor Brenton Thwaites at the Toronto International Film Festival (sparking rumours of a new little love story), Angelina Jolie and her kids paid a visit to the Sydney Aquarium on a warm day and Nicole Kidman sat pretty in the front row at New York Fashion Week. Also out? Kate Middleton, who stepped out for her first official engagement since the birth of Prince George, and Leighton Meester and Adam Brody, who showed off their love during a trip to New York City. That's not even the half of it — click through to see what else your favourite stars got up to this week!
In case you were wondering, Adam Brody and Leighton Meester are still dating. The pair brought their PDA to the East Coast for a hand-in-hand stroll in NYC's SoHo neighbourhood yesterday. Adam and Leighton were last spotted together during a coffee stop with their dogs in LA last month. The pair, who have been romantically linked since February, are able to spend a bit of downtime together for now since Adam recently wrapped promotions on his latest big-screen project, Lovelace, which comes out in Australia on Sept. 26. His free time will soon come to an end, though, as it was announced that he will be one of the guest stars to hit the Fall TV season in the US with a cameo on The League.
Strong brows, power brows, boyish brows, straight brows, neat brows, sharp brows, skinny brows, trimmed brows. . . Whatever the shape or size, those strips of hair above our eyes are having more than a moment — they're changing the faces of an entire generation! While the '90s paved the way for thin eyebrows, things are (thankfully) a lot thicker now. There's a new trend toward natural, so we asked the POPSUGAR Australia editors' to tell us who they look to for brow inspiration and the product they use to get the look. Thank you Cara, thank you.
This morning, we were all crying into our coffees over last night's TV death of Patrick from Offspring — how could you not feel the pain of his leading lady Nina (played by Asher Keddie)? We've loved Nina from day one of the Aussie drama, for her neuroses, down-to-earth attitude and, not least of all, her casual approach to beauty. A slick of gloss, some mascara and a ponytail? That's our girl, and we wouldn't have her any other way! Click through to see some of our favourite female characters of all time, and the hair and makeup looks that made them instantly recognisable.
It's been a week full of interesting pairings — some we've seen before, others not so much. Kristen Wiig and Pharrell Williams paired up to celebrate new film Despicable Me 2, which Kristen voices and Pharrell wrote the music for, while hot new couple Leighton Meester and Adam Brody made their official debut as a couple. Katy Perry and John Mayer look like they're back on for now, and Mick Jagger faced an interesting situation when he found himself at a party with both his ex-wife and current girlfriend. In true Mick style, he looked completely at ease. Meanwhile, Miranda Kerr kept cool on the hot streets on NYC, rocking a pretty sundress and showing a bit of leg.

Adam Brody had his girlfriend, Leighton Meester, by his side to celebrate the premiere of his film Some Girl(s) in LA last night. He also linked up with his co-stars Jennifer Morrison and Mia Maestro on the red carpet to debut the film ahead of its release in NYC and LA on Friday. While he walked the carpet with Jennifer and Mia, it was Leighton who had his arm as they left the after party later that evening, marking their first public event together as a couple. The pair began dating back in February and have been sneaking in dates together around LA ever since. Most recently, Leighton showed skin for a breakfast date with Adam over the weekend. They will also be hitting the big screen together soon since they are currently working on their latest collaboration, Life Partners, which is due out in 2014.
