Happy 26th Birthday Blake Lively!

Can you believe that Blake Lively is only 26? The actress who first came to fame in 2005’s teen flick Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants (bet she wishes everyone would just forget that now, eh?) and then impressed the fashion world in Gossip Girls (RIP!), seems like she’s been in our fashion conscious forever.

Our obsession with Ms Lively started with her perfect on-set portrayal of New York socialite, Serena van der Woodson.  Then she went all A-list on us and started working the red carpet and hooking up Leonardo di Caprio. And when she married Ryan Reynolds last year in a ceremony of just 60 people that we still don’t know much about – other than the fact her best mate Florence Welch sang for their first dance – our A-list fashion crush was complete.

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…
