Blake Lively: Runway in Real Life

Blake Lively is a fashion icon. And not just because she plays Serena van der Woodsen on Gossip Girl. She has become the darling of brands like Lanvin, Chanel, Elie Saab. Almost anyone who has influence in the fashion industry wants Blake to wear their clothing. Now is a chance to examine how Blake rocks looks right off the runway.

Blake wears this Lanvin look almost exactly as it was seen on the runway. Same shoes. Same leash with bug broach. Her tied back in a bun with only bangles for jewelry. The only difference being that Blake went for a monochromatic outfit while the opener for Lanvin's Spring show wore a camel top. Both women look utterly fabulous.

Donatella Versace added lots and lots of fringe for her Spring show. And a look that is so fashion is really hard to pull of in the main-stream media. But Blake manages to look effortless with a few slight changes to the runway styling. She opted for black shoes instead of nude and long dangling earrings to mimic the shape of the dramatic fringe in the front.

This beautifully sequined gown from Elie Saab is stunning. The cutouts add interest, show a little skin, but are far from vulgar. Blake wears blocky black heels rather than the strappy ones seen on the runway and she leaves a few wisps of hair to frame her face. Add bold black nails and million watt smile and Blake looks ready for anything.

December is finally here! It's the most wonderful time of the year! I hope you all are having an amazing year so far. And I'll talk to you guys soon! Bye. :)
