Blake Lively, Leighton Meester

Giovanni Rufino / The CW; JGM,

It's not exactly America's Next Top Model, but there could be a fashion showdown brewing over at Gossip Girl.

As we were the first to tell you, Blake Lively will star in a new ad campaign for Chanel come next year.

And now...

Sources confirm that her G.G. costar Leighton Meester has signed a deal to be the new face of Missoni.

"She wants to be high-end like Blake," says one source.

Who wouldn't? (Heck, who wouldn't want to have even a smidge of Lively's or Meester's rising fashion status?)

Meester's Missoni campaign launches early next year. As previously announced, she'll also be the celebrity face of Vera Wang's new fragrance.

One thing Meester won't be doing? Releasing an album of country music. "I'm definitely not coming out with a country album anytime soon," she told us at last night's Beverly Hills premiere of her new flick Country Strong, but added, "It's definitely different than anything I've done. I had a lot of fun. It's definitely influenced my style of songwriting since then, which I'm really grateful for."

In the new movie, Gwyneth Paltrow plays an alcoholic country superstar. Meester costars as her young competition, while Garrett Hedlund plays a smokin' hot cowboy, who's also—what else?—a singer.

Hedlund is another not looking to cut a country record, but "if any pals are playing on stage," he said, "I'll jump on and try and play with them."

Also at the premiere were Strong's Paltrow and Tim McGraw, along with Faith Hill, Minka Kelly, Trevor Donovan, and Tobey Maguire, who's a producer of the movie.
