“The O.C.” alum and “Gossip Girl” star made a rare public appearance at the New York premiere of “Fleishman Is in Trouble” at Carnegie Hall on Oct. 7. Based on a 2019 novel of the same name by Taffy Brodesser-Akner, he stars alongside Jesse Eisenberg, Lizzy Caplan and Claire Danes in the limited series.
For the occasion, Meester emulated Blair Waldorf’s classic style with a feminine dark brown velvet dress and floral designs. Her chic ensemble was paired with strappy gold heels and her hair tied back in a half up half down style. Brody, meanwhile, looked sleek and cool with a dark green suit, which he opted to match with a black tie and a gray button-up shirt.
Since tying the knot in 2014, Meester and Brody — who share 7-year-old daughter Arlo Day and a son, 2 — have largely kept their relationship private. However, over the years they’ve given glimpses into their family life.
Earlier this year, while reflecting on her movie “The Weekend Away,” the actress spoke about relating to her character who was on her first trip after welcoming a baby.
“I really was excited about playing a new mother who’s having a weekend away for the first time,” she told Cosmopolitan UK in March, “which is the most exciting and really the most terrifying prospect when you have a new baby.”
Meester added, “I felt like that was the kind of character that I could very easily relate to, slip into, and have compassion for. When I got the script breakdown it was like a 35-year-old with a 10-month-old and I was like, ‘That is exactly me.'”
