Of course, us Gossip Girlers find it impossible to pick the girl we like the most from the series, it would be like a mother choosing a favourite child. However, we’ve long been in awe of Blake Lively for an extra reason – she manages to never put a sartorial foot wrong on the red carpet, yet must be one of the few women in Hollywood who doesn’t have a stylist. Instead, she dresses herself and sources her own duds, managing to win approval from the likes of Anna Wintour herself – she’s appeared on not one but three US Vogue covers.
Which is why we LOVE this story about her shopping for shoes. Even though she's a big star, and even has
a Louboutin shoe named after her, when Blake was invited to the NY Christian Louboutin sample sale she stayed for four hours and carted away a mean 40 PAIRS at the end! Blake, who we're enjoying picturing sat on the floor surrounded by stacks of shoeboxes, was quoted as saying “I have sisters, so I’m getting gifts for them and for friends,” she explained. “Of course, I got quite a few for myself, too.” Well done Blake, bargain hunters around the world salute you!
