Blake Lively has become somewhat of a fashion darling since bleeping onto our radar on a little show called Gossip Girl. It wasn't long before the impossibly pretty actress was conquering red carpets in frothy Marchesa creations, taking FROW spots next to Anna Wintour, bagging a namesake Louboutin and becoming Karl Lagerfeld's new muse. What a busy bee!
And all this from a girl who claims she doesn't need a stylist. 'My assistant will call fashion houses for me, but I always pick the outfit, shoes, jewelry, and a lot of times I do my own hair and makeup for events,' Blake told US Marie Claire recently. 'Maybe it sounds jerky, but I’m lucky to be on such a fashion-centric show. There’s no designer I don’t have access to.'
It's alright for some, eh? And admittedly, Blake's sartorial swishes have been spot-on so far. The 22-year-old is back on the promo rounds this month for new film 'Savages' and she's wowed us every day this week with one designer cracker after the other (*click, refresh*). With the likes of Frida Giannini clamouring to dress her and a body that wears the clothes so well, is it any wonder?
So far we've seen her in that stunning Zuhair Murad couture gown for the LA premiere. For a chat with David Letterman, she sported a pretty white frock by Jenny Packham with a crystal-encrusted neckline that framed her *ahem* ample assets. Then she mixed it up with a crimson red Michael Kors suit teamed with strappy Christian Louboutin heels to appear on Good Morning America. And yesterday, it was a time for a spot of Gucci.
As the face of the new Gucci Première women’s fragrance, it was only a matter of time before La Lively would be swathed in one of the brand's glam gowns but the one she chose for the New York premiere was real special. That pale yellow on her pleated silk georgette gown works beautifully against her Cali tan, the halter neck and open back is super-sexy while the chiffon skirt falling from a gathered waist keeps it perfectly elegant. As our Gucci pals inform us, this is a one of a kind dress so there'll be no embarrassing who-wore-it-best contests. Phewf for that. Blake expertly finished off the Golden Goddess look with a pair of turquoise drop earrings and matching stack bracelets.
So if she carries on like this, we have an inkling our Blake crush is only set to sky-rocket...
