Like any girl, Leighton Meester sure loves her shoes, but its not their beauty that Leighton loves.

A pair of Marc Jacobs shoes won her the role of Blair Waldorf on the popular show, Gossip Girl.

Talking to Grazia, the 24-year-old actress spoke about how she risked not paying her rent so that she could buy the designer footwear.

“I’d moved back to New York, I was living in a third floor walk-up in the West Village and I had no clothes because my luggage had been lost on the flight from LA.

“I saw this pair of red leopard-print Marc Jacobs shoes, turned to my mum and said, ‘If I buy them I can’t pay rent.’ Mum just said, ‘rent can wait’.

“As I bought them I imagined that these would be the shoes that would win me the part. They did.”

Who knew a pair of shoes could be so lucky?!
