The Gossip Girl alum, 30 — who gave birth to her first child, daughter Arlo Day, last August — worked her slim post-baby physique in head-to-toe Michael Kors Collection. She wore a nude silk-georgette blouse, a sleeveless black jacket, tailored black trousers and peep-toe pumps.

The "Heartstrings" singer, who shares baby Arlo with husband Adam Brody, also modeled long ombre tresses, which she styled into loose waves. Bronzed cheeks and a rose-hued lip finished her golden beauty look.

After wrapping GG in 2012 and releasing her debut album in 2014, Meester is finally making her grand return to television with the upcoming comedy Making History, which follows three friends from two different centuries as they travel through time. Meester will play Deborah, a "rebellious colonial woman," opposite her fellow time travelers, The Mindy Project's Adam Pally and Yassir Lester. (You can watch the trailer here!)
