Can you believe that Blake Lively is only 26?

So happy birthday Blake. We hope you’re celebrating in style, today. The actress once said she loved planning parties so much that’s what she’d have done professionally if she wasn’t on screen so we’re hoping for some pictures of a grand old Hollywood occasion. For her 21st Blake threw a flapper-themed ball in the New York Palace hotel where Michael Buble sang her happy birthday. But last year Blake went low-key, enjoying a frozen hot chocolate at New York’s legendary parlour Serendipity 3. (Quarterlife crisis, per chance?) We’ll bring you an update of how Blake’s celebrates today when we know it. In the meantime, here’s a historic look back at some of her best fashion moments. Oh, those legs…
