Rumor has it that Blake Lively...

Blake is known for playing the super-sweet, incredibly beutiful blonde. The one that everyone hates [even if its just a little bit] because she's just too perfect. There was Bridget Vreeland in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and Serena Van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl.

But while she has taken movie and TV by storm, she is a star in the world of fashion. Her long blonde hair and charismatic smile seem to sparkle in a photgraph. She looks great in almost anything she puts on. If only everyone could be as lucky. :)

That bright magenta color photgraphs beautifully. It is a color that looks great on most skin-tones--and Blake looks beautiful. The leather jacket keeps the Dior dress from looking too girly or frou-frou. It adds a bit of edge to the look. The only way to make this outfit better, was if the background had been any color other than black. Blake's entire lower half blend into the background. 

This is casual chic! She looks ready to go shopping or countless other day-time activities. The blue leather skirt is an unexpected color for such a fabric. Then she picks the perfect top. It is a print to add interest to the outfit but the colors aren't matchy-matchy. The pulled back hair highlights Blake's natural beauty. Her simple makeup is perfect for the day.

Blake sparkles in that playful Elie Saab look. The cut-outs are both edgy and young. This woman is so incrediably photogentic and this look shows off her amazing legs. Simple black pumps and black nails finish of the look with effortless simplicity.

Next, Blake is wearing a look straight from the runway. She wore the look as it was in the show. Harness, broach, and everything. The dress is very fashion-forward and needs no touseled hair to distract from the craftsmanship of the look. The long slit is very sexy with glimpses of leg as she walks. Add chunky bangles and shoes to balance out the draping of the skirt, and the look is complete.

Gossip Girl this season is really good. So much better than last season. I love Clemence Poesy. She was amazing as Eva. I want Blair and Chuck to get back together but I can't get over how douch-ey Chuck was when he sold Blair for his hotel. Jeezz...boys. Are you watching Gossip Girl? [you should. jk!]
