A Month in the Style of Blake Lively

22 October 2010

It wasn't so long ago that Grazia reported to you on the rise of Gossip Girl's Blake Lively within fashiondom. Designers like Karl Lagerfeld are still clamouring to dress the young actress and it's no wonder - she has all the trappings of a modern Hollywood star with all the assets of the old school glamourpusses. The long blonde locks, perfectly proportioned face and well, there's no ignoring that this girl has a body that wears the clothes - and not the other way around.

Since our Blake Lively crush began we've kept a devoted vigil for her every sartorial swish (*click* *refresh*!) and we can report that this past month has been particularly productive. Both on the set of GG and during the promo trail of her latest flick, 'The Town', Blake's been living it up in some rather fetching outfits, we say. She waved goodbye to the boobs-and-legs-at-once idea quite some time ago and continues to make the most of those fortunate features in a more grown up and sophisticated manner...

Antonio Berardi's A/W '10 shift dress with lace subversively peeking out? That'll do nicely. Or how about showing off those killer pins in a fresh-off-the-catwalk-I'm-the-first-to-wear-the-collection maxi dress from Lanvin's sporty-chic S/S '11 show? Ooh, yes. We're jealous. Or a cute little coloured leather zip up skirt avec embellished top? Well, that's a combination we hadn't even thought could work in real life, but look at it go! And with lemon court shoes? This girl defies all rules without looking 'kooky' and overly out-there. And rumour is, she doesn't even have a stylist!

Kudos to you Miss Lively and please keep it going - we could all do with some more wardrobe inspiration throughout these cold wintry days...
