Blake's evolving style

She's one of Karl Lagerfeld’s BFFs after starring in that Chanel handbag campaign last year, played the radiant Serena van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl and is the gorgeous new face of Gucci, but Blake Lively’s latest role in ‘Savages’ – which opened in the US last week, and will be released in the UK in September – sees her er, smoking pot, tattoo-ridden and in a relationship with two best friends, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Taylor Kitsch. Ooh err. Talking about the new role, Blake told Celebuzz, ‘When I play a character so different than myself, I love to hide behind the clothes. It's actually a really good secret - if you don't look like her, and you don't talk like her, then you can disappear.’ We cannot wait to see it. So to honour Blake’s latest film, Grazia HQ has been discussing the rise of Ms Lively to superstardom through her most defining on-screen moments. Check them out below...

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, 2005

The girliest of teen-romcoms, 'The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants', follows four best friends as they share a pair of jeans during their summer away. Blake played sporty Bridget who ends up in Turkey on an archaeological dig. Serious guilty pleasure watching.


Gossip Girl, 2007 - present

When Gossip Girl first hit our screens back in 2007, we all fell in love with Serena van der Woodsen. The hair! The style! That voice! She became our new TV crush and we've has been ever since.


The Town, 2010

Director Ben Affleck gave Blake the part of Krista Couglin, a young mother/drug addict. It was heavy stuff but the Gossip Girl did brilliantly.

Green Lantern, 2011

It's the film that saw Blake go brunette (we approved) and more importantly sparked up the relationship between her and co-star Ryan Reynolds!

Savages, 2012

This year's 'Savages' sees Blake play alongside an all-star cast (John Travolta, Salma Hayek, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Taylor Kitsch) about a pair of er, pot growers as they battle the Mexican drug cartel who kidnap their (shared) girlfriend, AKA, Blake Lively's character 'O'

Savages is out September 28.
