Blake Lively is pregnant with her first child, reveals baby bump in adorable pic!

Last Updated on 24th March 2021 Huge congratulations this morning to one of the hottest A-list couples in Hollywood – Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds – as it’s just been announced that the pair are expecting their first child. Amazing news to kick-start the week! We don’t think former Gossip Girl star Blake Lively will be concealing her baby bump like Eva Mendes, as she already posted a pic of it to her Preserve website, along with the following statement… “Preserve at its core is about family. Family is the single word our founder, Blake built this home on. We have something for men, for women, for the old, but we realized we don’t have anything for the new. With family on our mind, we looked to the origin of it all—to the women in our lives who are right there, at that special moment; at the creation of family. Today we celebrate them. With food to fill their tummies (as if that needs more filling), presents to soothe their tired (and swollen) soles, toys to warm their baby’s souls, projects to provoke them, and decorations to inspire creativity and merriment in all.” “We had too much fun with this,” Blake continued. “Because there’s so much to share, we break up our first ever Preserve Celebration into multiple parts. In the upcoming days we will bring even more treats and fun. The entire next month will be sprinkled with highlights for women in this exciting chapter of their lives. Congratulations to all the expecting mothers out there. And thank you for being a part of our Preserve family.” Aww – is that not one of the cutest ways of revealing a pregnancy? Congratulations to Blake and Ryan once again – no doubt we will see the expectant mummy in some killer maternity […]

Blake Lively helps Marie Claire US celebrate its 20th birthday with stunning September issue cover

Last Updated on 13th August 2014 Who does Marie Claire US get to help it celebrate its 20th birthday? It obviously had to be someone good; someone with huge selling power and a huge presence in the fashion industry. And that someone is none other than former Gossip Girl Blake Lively. And what a fabulous cover it is, too! As you can imagine, Blake Lively has the perfect body, hair, attitude, and pretty much everything else that is needed to showcase fashion’s hottest threads, and that’s exactly what she does in her accompanying editorial. She also tells the mag everything about her partnership with Gucci, her brand new website Preserve, and of course, more deets about her relationship with husband Ryan Reynolds. “We’ve never gone a week without seeing each other,” she said. “There’s no major decision that I make without him. The best part is when we turn off our phones and just talk and hang out. He’s my best, best friend. What do you do with your best friend? You do nothing.” Aww, don’t they sound adorable? The Marie Claire US September issue hits newsstands on August 19th, so not that long to wait to read the interview in full and gaze (in awe) at Blake’s pictures.

Blake Lively’s 73 question challenge for American Vogue August issue

Last Updated on 25th July 2014 American Vogue has once again given meaning to that “save the best ‘til last” phrase as it debuted it August 2014 issue featuring the one and only Blake Lively. How good does she look on the cover? We definitely think it’s been worth the wait! The former Gossip Girl actress was shot by Mario Testino for the publication’s annual Age Issue, and looked the epitome of perfection in the process. As well as looking phenomenal in each and every one of her pictures (standard!), the actress, Gucci ambassadress and style maven opened up about pretty much everything thanks to an epic 73 question challenge posed by the mag. Trust us, it’s a good’un! We learnt that she wore a coral dress to her prom, that she identifies with all the men in Sex and the City (interesting, especially as we always had her down as a Carrie Bradshaw), and what life with her and Ryan Reynolds is really like. We won’t spoil it for you, but prepare for lots of “ooh”ing and “aww”ing as it’s pretty darn adorable. Especially when you find out about the super personal gifts they give each other…

Blake Lively, Chanel and a Cannes Film Festival red carpet = perfection!

Last Updated on 16th May 2014 Yep, we’re writing about Blake Lively at the Cannes Film Festival for the second day in a row. We don’t think anyone will blame us though, as we just fell off our office swivel chairs when we first clapped eyes on her latest look. Although Blake Lively is the face of Gucci Premiere and has looked sensational in its dresses this month, she decided to go for a different designer for her latest Cannes appearance. And the only designer to substitute Gucci for has to be Chanel, right? Blake Lively literally sparkled on the Mr Turner premiere red carpet in a bedazzling Chanel Couture dress that is pretty much what all sartorial dreams are made of. She teamed it with Sophia Webster heels, an abundance of exquisite Lorraine Schwartz jewellery, and her signature effortless beach waves (which we learnt are a lot lower maintenance than we thought). And how much do you love the pocket detailing on that dress? We need a moment to process how one woman can look so perfect; please excuse us…

Blake Lively owns the Grace of Monaco red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival

Last Updated on 15th May 2014 The Cannes Film Festival is in full swing, and you can always count on Blake Lively to show everyone how it’s done on the red carpet. Mrs Ryan Reynolds looked breath-taking (there’s a sentence we’ve said time and time again and will probably never get bored of saying!) as she attended the Grace of Monaco premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. She chose to wear a stunning scarlet Gucci Premiere dress for the occasion, which came complete with a sinfully sexy thigh high slit – the perfect excuse for Blake to get her long, bronzed pins out! We didn’t think anything was going to top the Gucci Premiere dress she wore to the Met Gala a few weeks ago, but we think this might have just done it! Blake Lively wearing Gucci Premiere on a big red carpet is pretty much expected now that she is the face of the fragrance, but that certainly doesn’t mean we’re going to tire of it. Akin to Jennifer Lawrence who seldom fail to impress in Christian Dior, we think Blake Lively has a lot more jaw-dropping Gucci looks to present to us.

Blake Lively wows in Gucci on New York red carpet

Following her jaw-dropping appearance at the Met Gala on Monday night (she wore a stunning Gucci Premiere dress and, along with her husband Ryan Reynolds, wowed absolutely everyone with her radiance) Blake Lively has made yet another glorious appearance on the red carpet. This time round, the actress attended Gucci’s Chime for Change Campaign in New York on Tuesday (no time to nurse a Met Gala after-party hangover!) dressed in a gorgeous trench coat from the Gucci Pre-Fall 2014 collection with a bejewelled dress from the brand’s autumn/winter 2014 collection underneath. We don’t think it was, but it looks like the coat was made exclusively for her as it fits her like a glove and complements her dreamy skin tone and enviable golden locks perfectly. Blake completed her stylish outfit with spiked shoes from her good pal Christian Louboutin and what is fast becoming her signature slightly dishevelled side braid. Sartorial perfection at its finest!

Ellie Goulding vs. Blake Lively…Who wore Balmain better?

The nifty LBD never fails to impress with its versatile ways:  elevating a simple look to award-worthy heights, and being one of the easiest wardrobe staples to take from day to night; you won’t be stuck for options.  And, impressing the hell out of us this week in their respective LBDs are Ellie Goulding and Blake Lively, who both wore the same Balmain number nearly five years apart! Cast your mind back to September 2009, when Blake Lively gave this sequined number its first outing at the HBO post-Emmy Awards party. Playing up its glistening embellishment and exaggerated shoulders to full effect, Blake paired the dress with Jimmy Choo sandals and emerald hued earrings. Slicked back hair, neutral make-up and a healthy glow topped off her look with perfection. Giving the dress its second outing was Ellie Goulding, who struck a red carpet pose at the L.A. premiere of Divergent, back in March. Opting for open hair and natural make-up, the singer showed off the dress’s plunging neckline with aplomb. Matching Christian Louboutin pumps completed Ellie’s relaxed-glam look. So, who scores the hottest LBD wearer award? Both ladies brought their A-game and looked super-hot in their respective looks, but Blake steals the show for us. The dress’s strong silhouette demands a fuss-free approach to styling and Ellie’s long locks unnecessarily conceal the statement shoulder detail. We’re Team Slicked Back, all the way! Whose look wins for you? [Images: Ellie; Blake]

Blake Lively and Freida Pinto kill it on Michael Kors AW14 FROW

Last Updated on 13th February 2014 We think the Michael Kors autumn/winter 2014 front row might have been one of the most fashionable – and high profile – ones for the whole of New York Fashion Week. Blake Lively rocked up to the Michael Kors show in the designer’s spring/summer 2014 threads, which consisted of a smart dark blue short-sleeved jacket, a tan belt and a floral pencil skirt with a sexy slit in the front. Well, when you’ve got pins as perfect as Blake, it would be rude not to show them off, right? Her hair, as usual, was flawlessly shiny and tumbling over her shoulders in that effortless Blake Lively way/Mrs Ryan Reynolds way. We’re not jealous at all, honestly… Elsewhere on the front row was Freida Pinto, who also turned heads in her floral MK ensemble. Although her look was elegant, feminine and somewhat conservative, she added a little bit of sexiness thanks to the cut-out peek-a-boo detailing at the top. The oversized clutch was also a nice touch, especially as it complemented her shoes perfectly. Two gorgeous ladies; we can’t wait to see them step out in the designer’s new-season pieces!

Dita von Teese and Blake Lively attend Van Cleef & Arpels New York Maison reopening

Last Updated on 13th December 2013 One of the biggest events of the week came from Van Cleef & Arpels, as it celebrated the reopening of its legendary Fifth Avenue Maison with the unveiling of a new tri-level townhouse. The newly redesigned space feature some of the most exquisite pieces both from around the world and iconic to New York and includes a new VIP room, library and first ever “Estelle & Alfred” bridal salon. It certainly doesn’t do things by halves! Dita Von Teese and Blake Lively (each decked out in some of the finest and most envious pieces) were among the famous guests lucky enough to get an invite to the very prestigious event, and even enjoyed a surprise live ballet curated by Natalie Portman’s hubby Benjamin Millepied and choreographed by Justin Peck. Oh to have been a fly on the wall! What do you think of the luxurious space above? Definitely well worth a visit if you’re in the area, regardless of whether you have the funds to shop in there or not.

First look: Blake Lively for L’Oreal Paris

Last Updated on 1st November 2013 Earlier this week we announced that Blake Lively had been named the newest brand ambassador of L’Oreal Paris… and now we can finally take a look at her debut ad campaign images. As we predicted, the black and white ad campaign images above are pretty breathtaking; not that we expected any less from the gorgeous blonde actress and wife to a certain Mr Ryan Reynolds. “I am thrilled and honoured to join the incredible women who represent L’Oreal Paris,” Blake said. “From the versatile and motivational brand ambassadors, to all the women who proudly wear L’Oreal Paris each day. I grew up with the inspiration of their message, ‘We’re worth it.’ “What an important value to instill in women – that beauty is rooted in confidence. That is key. That is why I’m so proud to be a L’Oreal Paris woman.” Aww, we couldn’t have put it better ourselves. We bet the L’Oreal Paris family has welcomed her with open arms. We can’t wait to see more ads if her debut ones above are anything to go by. Simply stunning! [Marie Claire]

Blake Lively is the newest face of L’Oreal Paris!

Last Updated on 30th October 2013 Huge congratulations to former Gossip Girl Blake Lively, as she has just signed a multi-million Dollar contract as the newest brand ambassador for L’Oreal Paris! And she’s in good company too, joining the likes of our very own Cheryl Cole, as well as Beyonce, Freida Pinto, Lea Michele, Jennifer Lopez and more. L’Oreal Paris confirmed the news via their Instagram account, roughly translated from French as: “Exclusive announcement! We’re excited to welcome the gorgeous and talented Blake Lively, our new lady ambassador! She’s definitely worth it!” We couldn’t agree more! It was only a matter of time until the girl with the gorgeous golden hair and flawless skin was snapped up by the hair and beauty brand. We can’t wait to see her debut ad for the company! [Image]

Blake Lively wears Gucci SS14 jumpsuit moments after its MFW debut

Last Updated on 20th September 2013 Well this has to be some sort of record! Less than 24 hours after debuting on the Milan Fashion Week catwalk, Blake Lively has stepped out in a black liquid lame jumpsuit from the brand spanking new Gucci spring/summer 2014 collection. And doesn’t she look incredible in it? Why she wasn’t sent on the runway in it in a Rita Ora for DKNY fashion we will never know! The face of the Gucci Premiere fragrance looked positively glowing as she attended the Beauty in Wonderland exhibition in Milan yesterday evening. She accessorised her new-season jumpsuit with black open-toed sandals and an 18kt white gold and diamond horsebit cocktail ring, while sweeping her hair off her face in a chicly disheveled updo and opting for natural make-up. If it wasn’t already obvious why Gucci loves her, this look will definitely do the trick. A match made in heaven! [Image c/o Gucci]

Blake Lively talks Ryan Reynolds and her evolving style in Lucky’s September 2013 issue

Last Updated on 31st July 2013 Just like we told you last month, Blake Lively has indeed secured the Lucky September issue front cover… and here it is in all its glory! Expect a host of stunning pics – not too dissimilar from the cover image – and an open, honest interview to boot. Blake, who recently admitted that her hubby Ryan Reynolds seeks her fashion advice before big events, talk to the mag about her ever-evolving style, as well as that of her other half… “I’m very lucky to be with someone who has better taste than me. We influence each other in different ways,” she said. “I was recently asked how my style has changed since I got married, as if I was living under some sort of dictatorship. I should hope I dress differently at 25 than I did when I graduated high school. I hope I never stop changing.” We still don’t know how she manages to nail each and every look sans stylist, but we’re hoping she will divulge in the interview. You can read more in the September issue of Lucky which hits newsstands on August 6th.

Blake Lively and her mother “fight over perfume” too

Last Updated on 13th May 2013 Want proof that Blake Lively is just like us? How does the fact that she and her mother fight over perfume, sound? As it was Mother’s Day in the good old US of A yesterday, Blake Lively sat down with the folks at Gucci to explain how she celebrated the big day with her family. And according to the new Mrs Ryan Reynolds, she and mama Lively fought over the Gucci Premiere perfume “like it was chocolate” the first time Blake brought it home. “She is the type of woman that will go up to somebody waiting in line at Disneyland and say ‘what are you wearing? That smells so good I must have that!’ And when she smelt my Gucci Premiere the bottle was gone from my shelf in two seconds – she stole it from me. It was like chocolate we were fighting over it! Fighting over perfume and eating chocolate? Guess Blake is a normal girl after all which makes us heart her even more! http://youtu.be/hhlLJSt-h7Y [Style Bistro]

Blake Lively, Katy Perry and more “Chime for Justice, Health and Education” in new Gucci vid

Last Updated on 17th April 2013 Gucci’s Chime for Change project just keeps getting bigger and better every day, with even more A-list ladies lending their support to the wonderful organisation. The newest faces to get behind the movement include Blake Lively, Katy Perry, Halle Berry, Freida Pinto, Olivia Wilde, Zoe Saldana, Evan Rachel Wood and Jada Pinkett Smith and can be seen supporting the cause in the very moving and motivational video below. “What inspires me and what I think ultimately inspires women and other people is knowing that change is possible,” Halle Berry says in the video. “At the click of a button we can be connected around the world.” Katy Perry also chimes in… “If I feel strongly about something the whole world will know in a matter of seconds.” We hope Katy Perry’s involvement in the video means that she too will join the likes of Beyonce and Rita Ora in the Chime for Change concert which is taking place on Twickenham this summer – we’ll keep you posted on those updates as and when we get them.

Blake Lively and Emma Stone make a welcome return at The Croods premiere

Blake Lively and Emma Stone have been noticeably absent on the red carpet these days (well, we can never get enough of them even when they do regularly grace us with their presence) so we’re glad to see them return for the New York premiere of The Croods – we welcome them back with open arms! Emma Stone looked divine in a monochrome Lanvin dress with an exaggerated bow at the back, which she teamed with a long, layered necklace, nude pumps and smouldering smoky eyes. Blake Lively, or should we say the relatively new Mrs Ryan Reynolds, also wowed the crowd as she lent her support to her hubby on his newest film. Blake flashed her perfect pins in a skin-tight burgundy and white Marios Schwab dress, which she teamed with her signature dishevelled “I just got out of bed but look how perfect I look” hairstyle. And if there’s anyone to convince us that white pumps are okay, it’s Blake… anyone else have leg envy?

Blake Lively and Leighton Meester rock Georges Chakra and Elie Saab for Gossip Girl

Last Updated on 17th October 2012 To celebrate Gossip Girl returning to our screens tonight for what will be the sixth and final season (we promised we wouldn’t get emotional, but excuse us while we bring the Kleenexes closer just in case) we’ve decided to feature the Princesses of the Upper East Side in our daily celeb style feature. And Princesses they certainly are, as both Blake Lively and Leighton Meester put on their finest couture while filming their latest scenes for the show. Blake looked sublime in a metallic and white Georges Chakra Couture gown from the Spring 2011 collection, while Leighton Meester looked as chic and elegant as always in a blue Elie Saab Couture creation. We have no idea what’s in store for their respective characters Serena and Blair, but we predict it’s going to be as scandalous as always! Gossip Girl is on ITV2 at 8pm tonight – will you be tuning in? [Image]

Blake Lively wore Marchesa down the aisle!

Last Updated on 11th September 2012 The only thing more shocking than discovering Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds got married in secret at the weekend was learning who designed her wedding dress. The blushing bride wore neither Chanel nor Gucci and actually went for a custom Marchesa gown instead – designed exclusively for her by Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig. Who would have thunk it? According to British Vogue, the new Mrs Reynolds wore a one-of a-kind Couture bridal ballgown with a hand-draped silk tulle bodice covered in crystals and rose gold embroidery. We need a pic… like, now! We’re not betting people, but would have wagered serious money that Blake would have glided down the aisle in a bespoke Chanel or Gucci number. Blake and Kaiser Karl have been friends for what seems like forever, and she is of course the face of Gucci’s new fragrance so they seemed like the obvious choices. Still, it wasn’t all shock-factor, as Blake reportedly wore a pair of her BFF Christian Louboutin’s shoes under her gown. And yes, he was invited to the wedding too! As for Ryan and the rest of the boys, reports are suggesting that they all wore Burberry suits custom made for them by Christopher Bailey! Are you still shocked Blake is now a married woman?

“I probably should have been medicated about my obsession with The Spice Girls!” – Blake Lively, Marie Claire UK October

Last Updated on 10th September 2012 Whether we’re gushing about her latest red carpet appearance or just having a good old chinwag about current and potential Gossip Girl plots, you know we can’t resist a bit of Blake Lively! This is why we were ecstatic to find out that the leggy blonde fashionista is Marie Claire UK’s October cover girl! Now, some of you readers overseas might be scratching your heads wondering where you’ve seen these images before… and we’d hate to be the bearers of bad news, but you’re not Mystic Meg as Blake’s pics are in fact reprints. Sad face! Having said that however, we don’t actually care because a) we’ve not seen them on our shelves here in the UK and b) when can you ever really get enough Blake Lively? Never! Oh yeah, and did we mention she friggin’ loves The Spice Girls? “When I was a child I probably should have been medicated about my obsession with The Spice Girls,” she said. “I had the Buffalo shoes, a customised Baby Spice necklace – when I say custom made it was made out of plastic from the local mall – and a Union Jack dress.” Blake, we didn’t think it was possible to love you anymore, but clearly we were wrong! Marie Claire UK‘s October issue is out right now… get it while it’s hot! Ps: huge congratulations to Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, as they reportedly got married in secret at the weekend… more info when we get it!

Blake Lively stuns in Gucci at the Venice Film Festival

Quelle surprise; Blake Lively turns up to a red carpet event and looks flawless. We know we’ve sung this tune a thousand times, but it never really gets old as far as our fave leggy blonde Gossip Girl actress is concerned. Blake turned up to the Hotel Cipriani during the Venice Film Festival for the launch party of Gucci Première, the brand spanking new scent from the fashion House that she is of course the face of. Ms Lively showed off some of her best assets in the custom, sparkling burgundy-coloured Gucci dress, which she accessorised with minimalist, matching Gucci strappy heels and her trademark slightly dishevelled hairstyle. You know, the one that screams “I got dressed in under five minutes and look how unfairly gorgeous I look!”. Another flawless red carpet appearance from the blonde goddess, but then again, when do we get anything less than perfection from Blake Lively? [Image c/o Gucci]

“There are days when I will be like, ‘Oh my goodness, I am not happy with the way I look because I cannot fit into any of my clothes’” – Blake Lively, Style mag

Last Updated on 21st August 2012 So our Tuesday morning just got a little bit depressing.  Blake Lively, i.e. the girlfriend of the hottie that is Ryan Reynolds and BFF of Christian Louboutin apparently doesn’t exercise. And eats junk food! On a scale of one to ten, how unfair is life? “I am terrible; I don’t do any exercise,” Blake told Style magazine. “I’m going to have to learn the hard way. I love food too much, and my family is from the South, so the food I like is not necessarily the best for you. “There are days when I will be like, “Oh my goodness, I am not happy with the way I look because I cannot fit into any of my clothes”. So I eat quinoa that week, and then I feel good.” Even though Blake is hot Hollywood property, it’s nice to know that she still remains grounded, and relies on her close friends and family to help her do so. “The same people who love you to death one day will hate you to death the next, so who do you give the keys to your self-worth to?  You have to have those keys for yourself. And you have to surround yourself with people who are honest with you. “I need honesty. I need good friends who can say, ‘I love you to death, but you look terrible in that and you need to change right now.’ We doubt Blake would ever look terrible though… You can read the rest of Blake Lively’s interview – where she also talks about how she’ll never go totally nude on film – in the latest issue of Style.  [Daily Mail]

Blake Lively’s Gucci Première commercial finally lands – and it’s stunning!

Last Updated on 1st August 2012 It’s a busy week for Gucci! Just yesterday we showed you the second of four Charlotte Casiraghi Forever Now ad campaign images, and today we have something just as, if not more, special. It’s finally time to see Blake Lively in action, as the video commercial for her Gucci Première fragrance has finally surfaced. And yes, all of those clichés like saving the best til last and good things coming to those who wait all apply in this situation. The short film was shot by Nicholas Winding Refn, and features the blonde actress looking like a true golden Hollywood goddess in not one, but two jaw-droppingly gorgeous Gucci gowns. We know Blake is used to dressing in lavish gowns on Gossip Girl, but we don’t think we’ve ever seen her looking so seductive and sumptuous. Are you loving this as much as we are? http://youtu.be/NzV3GRtwftQ [Gucci Parfums]

Blake Lively is beautiful in blue Marc by Marc Jacobs for Gossip Girl

We have to all accept that pretty soon we’re going to have to kiss a long and painful goodbye to Gossip Girl, and as a result, brand new pics of the cast on the set will no longer exist. So, we’re making the most of it while it lasts! Blake Lively was “spotted” (said in our finest Gossip Girl American accent) on Madison Avenue in Manhattan yesterday in a gorgeous summery-blue Marc by Marc Jacobs dress, which was relatively modest in length but very daring at the top by way of a plunging neckline. It really goes to show how much Serena van deer Woodsen’s style has evolved over the years, doesn’t it? Blake/Serena teamed her dress with some coral Christian Dior platform sandals, which makes a nice change from the Christian Louboutins the actress wears when she’s not on set. The giant bag also adds to the overall wow-factor of the outfit, making this another style triumph for our favourite blonde Upper East Sider. Are you looking forward to the new (and final – sniff) season of Gossip Girl?

Midweek Moodboard: Barbie pink a’ la Blake Lively

Last Updated on 19th October 2013 This is most definitely not cheating, and the “must stop blogging about every single item Blake Lively is wearing on her Savages promo tour” goal we set ourselves isn’t proving difficult at all, honest. Shifty eyes… Ok, we admit that we’ve been besotted with Blake Lively’s wardrobe recently, but one look we didn’t manage to rant and rave about which we feel deserves extra attention was her hot pink Lanvin one!

First Look: Blake Lively for Gucci Première

We can’t keep away from Blake Lively these days. We’ve been crushing on her Savages promo tour wardrobe for the past week now, but it’s her brand new duties at Gucci that we are focusing our attention on this morning. Admit it, Blake Lively certainly makes a Monday morning more tolerable, right? What do you guys think of the first image of Blake promoting Gucci’s brand new Première fragrance? We were in awe when we first laid eyes on it – it’s everything we expected it to be, and more. The ad was shot by the legendary Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, and as per the sneaky pic Gucci treated us to, Blake is rocking the old Hollywood timeless glamour look better than anyone! Don’t forget, a short film by Nicolas Winding Refn will be released during the Venice Film Festival in September; do you think you can wait until then? [Image]

Who rocked their red tux better – Blake Lively or Rihanna?

Last Updated on 28th June 2012 Ok, you caught us, we’ll fess up – we are finding it extremely difficult to not gush about Blake Lively every single day. We knew her Savages promotion would mean that we’d see a lot more of her on the red carpet and we’d have to refrain from writing about her every single day, but we didn’t know she was going to make it so gosh darn difficult for us. But it’s ok, we found ourselves a loophole. Where there’s a Blake there’s a way… or something to that effect. We noticed that both Blake Lively and Rihanna were rocking red trouser suits these past couple of days, so we thought we’d present you guys with the pics and ask you for your verdict! Blake arrived at Good Morning America in a striking red tux by Michael Kors; an unpredictable choice but one which we utterly adore! Look how chic she is! Rihanna, another frequent lady on our celebrity style radar, also turned up the heat in a red hot tux! The Bajan singer went for a red and pink Acne trouser suit right here in London. Was this a coincidence or are Blake and Ri-Ri secret BFFs? (We hope the latter!) We love both looks, but who is your favourite lady in red? [poll id=”353″]

Blake Lively stuns in Zuhair Murad Couture at the Savages premiere

Last Updated on 26th June 2012 Well what do you know, Blake Lively looked absolutely breathtaking at the LA premiere of Savages last night – shock horror! As if anyone doubted that she would look anything but a vision of utter perfection, though. The stunning actress – and new face of Gucci – rocked the red carpet in a figure-hugging black and nude Zuhair Murad gown from the Spring Couture 2012 collection which pretty much fit her like a glove. We always said that Jennifer Lopez and Zuhair Murad were a match made in heaven (he is creating her tour wardrobe after all) but we think he and Blake also make a pretty indestructible team too. The dress is indisputably stunning, but it doesn’t act alone in making Blake’s overall look so wow-worthy. Her old Hollywood glamour girl side-swept waves, subtle jewellery, pillar box red lips and crescent nails also contribute to the sartorial magic. Flawless!

Last Updated on 22nd June 2012 Very exciting news this afternoon – Blake Lively has just been revealed as the face of Gucci Première, the fashion House’s brand spanking new perfume. Yippee! Now Blake and Leighton Meester (who is the face of Vera Wang’s ‘Lovestruck’ scent) can be fragrance buddies! “In conceiving this fragrance I was inspired by timeless Hollywood glamour and the iconic leading ladies of Hollywood’s golden era,” said Frida Giannini, Gucci’s Creative Director. “Blake’s unique style and charisma brings that allure to life in a very contemporary way.” The print campaign has been shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, and the video commercial was directed by award-winning Nicolas Winding Refn. We will of course share these with you as soon as they drop – you know we don’t like to keep you in suspense for too long! Gucci Première will premiere, if you will, next month. Excited?

Blake Lively carries the new Mulberry Travel Camera bag, makes us all green with envy

Last Updated on 13th January 2012 Blake Lively is just one of those people that shouldn’t ever have a problem getting out of bed in the morning. Just think: The Gossip Girl star is BFFs with the likes of Karl Lagerfeld and Anna Wintour, has dated some of Hollywood’s hottest and most eligible bachelors (Leonardo Dicaprio, Ryan Reynolds… need we go on?) and has an ever-expanding CV which is already oozing with tip top acting and modelling gigs.

Blake Lively brings downtown chic to Manhattan

As her on-screen ego Serena van der Woodsen, we are used to seeing Blake Lively strutting around on set in all manner of Lavin, Chanel and Louboutin. That’s why, when this picture of Blake landed on our desk, we couldn’t believe how dressed down the 24-year-old looked. She looked effortlessly cool as she hung around in New York wearing dark blue skinny jeans, a sparkly red and black striped sweater and hooded leather jacket. It looks like she hung up her heels for the day too, instead opting for a pair of tough looking flat boots. We especially love her ultra glitzy top – who doesn’t love a bit of sparkle in December, after all?! While we’re sure Blake hasn’t retired from her designer threads permanently, it’s good to see her looking so laid-back and stylish. Top marks also for her natural hair and makeup, too. Ah, this New York socialite malarkey looks like a hard life… [poll id=”249″]

Blake Lively shows off her new Louboutins at the designer’s 20th anniversary party

Muse and friend of Monsieur Christian Louboutin, Blake Lively isn’t shy of wearing a high heel or two, so it must be super handy to have the shoe designer extraordinaire on speed dial.   She was guest of honour at a cocktail party at Barneys, New York, at the weekend to celebrate his 20th year in the business and, wearing a tiny Dolce & Gabbana floral lace dress, she stood out from the crowd by a mile. The floral bustier-style top and black crochet lace skirt worked impeccably well together and was perfect cocktail party attire. On her feet she opted for a pair of multi-coloured snakeskin heels from Louboutin (natch), which the designer must have approved of, seeing as over joyously carried Blake out of the building! Her signature long and loose blonde locks gave a sexy and carefree vibe to her look and her minimal make-up stopped Blake from looking too over done. A Gossip Girl, Ryan Reynolds, all American sweetheart-status and free Louboutins – damn, some girls have all the luck. [poll id=”227″]

Who wore it best? Blake Lively vs Taylor Swift in turquoise Tibi

Last Updated on 28th July 2011 They’re both blonde, they’re both A-Listers and they have the same taste in colour popping dresses. But the question is, who wore this tantalising turquoise Tibi mini-dress best? First up is Blake Lively, who donned the dress for an outing in New York. Her endless legs showcase the short hemline and pleated skirt perfectly. In true Blake style, her waves are relaxed yet groomed, and her make-up looks flawless, with a hint of pink lips. What do we love most about this outfit – the contrasting Charlotte Olympia leopard print heels, they show that Blake can dare to have fun with fashion! Brownie points go to Taylor for cinching the dress in at the waist with a skinny gold belt and for her curly up-do that allows the dress to shine. But we don’t love her uninspiring bow detailed cream pumps. We much prefer Blake’s walk on the wild side in her loud leopard heels. So sorry Taylor, whilst we admire you for trying it seems like Blake Lively can do no wrong in the style stakes! Who do you prefer in this turquoise Tibi dress?

Blake Lively’s become a redhead!

Last Updated on 27th April 2011 The gorgeous Blake Lively is known as much for flowing tresses as she is her impeccable sense of style, so we were a little surprised this morning to see that she’s dyed those beach blonde waves red. Red! Appearing at the Times magazine 100 Most Influential People party last night, she debuted her brand new ‘do on the red carpet with a mane to match, showcasing inches of full, bouncy, auburn waves.  Red locks are quite the rage at the moment, it appears, having been spotted on the heads of Rihanna and Cheryl Cole, so was it just a matter of time before Blake embraced the look? Unlikely. Apparently her new hair is for a film role as Glinda the Good Witch in the upcoming Oz: The Great and the Powerful movie, which would explain those rumours a while back, too (though teamed with her turquoise Zuhair Murad gown and towering Louboutins, she’d be equally suited for the role of Ariel, we reckon). Film roles aside, we’re unsure whether this racy colour suits Blake. It’s a bit too dramatic for her relaxed style and makes her look old beyond her years. Fingers crossed she’ll swap back to blonde after the film. Whatever will Karl say? What do you think about Blake’s new hair? Would you ever dye your hair a dramatic colour? As always, your thoughts below, please…

Blake Lively’s alright in white

With a perfect figure, luscious long locks and access to one of the greatest on-set wardrobes ever, Blake Lively is easily one of the most envied women on the plane. And yesterday she gave us another reason to wish we could trade places with her. She was spotted yesterday at CinemaCon – a film convention in Las Vegas – promoting her new film The Green Lantern, which means this stunning spring Dolce & Gabbana outfit was essentially just her workwear. We adore her look – the crisp silk lace dress screams sleek, sophisticated and sexy, whilst the sharp white blazer and grey suede shoe boots completed the ensemble and cleverly complemented her Californian tan. And her accessorising was limited to spring’s hottest jewellery choice – a knuckle-duster ring – and her trademark tousled hair. If that outfit isn’t enough to make you green with envy then the fact that she stars opposite uber hunk Ryan Reynolds in her new film might just do it. Jealous? Us? What do you think of Blake Lively’s all-white look? [poll id=”71″]

Chanel head quarters are unhappy with Blake Lively

Last Updated on 1st April 2011 As gossip goes, apparently some members of Chanel‘s US headquarters are unhappy about Blake Lively being the face of their international brand – a source told the New York Daily News earlier this week there had been “internal grumblings” in the office, suggesting the all-American spokesperson made it more difficult to sell produce to European consumers.

More Blake Lively Chanel ads

Last Updated on 10th March 2011 Everyone knows by now that Gossip Girl star, Blake Lively, is the face behind Chanel’s latest campaign ad for its range of Mademoiselle handbags – so just as news is rife, we give you yet more pretty pictures to ponder over. Having already showed you a quick glimpse into some of the previous pictorials, it looks as if the second batch is just as exciting as the first – with Blake looking positively stunning, naturally. Complete with tousled blonde hair and an absent smile from the American dream girl’s face, Blake homes in on the seductive glam factor Chanel simply love – making way for a set of truly stunning images. But wait, the fun doesn’t end there – thanks to Fashionista we can catch an exclusive behind-the-scenes shot of Karl Lagerfeld and Ms Lively having a good ‘ole chin wag. Oh, to be a fly on the wall, eh?
