Aside from those naked pictures leaking onto the internet, Blake Lively‘s on fire right now. She’s the ultimate girl-next-door style icon we all want to be, and she’s revealed all for Glamour magazine’s July cover star special.
Photographed by Terry Tsiolis in New York City, Blake appears on the cover wearing an embellished Michael Kors tunic and Lorraine Schwartz bracelets, and the inside spread only gets better.
Talking to bestest bud Florence Welch, Blake tells the singer what it’s like being so god damn popular, how she gets ready for the red carpet, and why she doesn’t use a stylist.
“People ask me why I don’t tweet,” she says. “Honestly, I’m so sick of myself.”
Problem is, we’re not sick of her, after all, she has bagged a lucrative deal with Chanel.
“It’s such an honor. When I found out I got [the job], you and I went to dinner and concocted this plan, like two little girls at a tea party, saying, “Oh, it would be the best if we had a party. And you’ll perform, and we’ll do it in Paris.” Like you and I were in charge of Chanel!” she says.
What she is in charge of, though, is her style – there’s no stylist here.
“I think I became my own stylist by not knowing any better. And once I was told it was time to get one, I thought: This is one of my favorite hobbies! And I’m going to pay someone to steal my hobby from me? That’s a terrible idea!
“I like it to be easy,” she says of her style. “I don’t feel like I have to do so much with hair and makeup, because I’m the mannequin for these beautiful clothes, so I never want to do anything too distracting. I feel shy when people are fussing on me. And my diet of choice before events is a chicken potpie from Tea & Sympathy, because they never have enough food at these things.”
