Blake Lively has cemented herself as an incredible actress, a superstar mom and a total fashionista. After all, there’s no celebrity who does a red carpet like her. She can turn heads in gowns, pants and everything in between.
From her colorful and feminine beaded frocks with just a tinge of effortless boho flair, to her penchant for Christian Louboutin shoes — Lively’s style is uniquely her own and endlessly inspiring.
And it’s all the more impressive since the star famously picks her own clothes. That’s right, this woman acts as her own stylist.
“It’s a lot of work [but] I mean, it’s not hard in that we all dress ourselves every morning,” she told WWD in 2018. “So once you have the clothes, you just pick out what to wear like any other human being does. But it’s easier because you have access to clothes so it’s not that hard.”
She continued: “The hard part is going through all the fashion shows and screenshooting all the looks you like and calling them in. I have an assistant who helps in calling in the looks. But a lot of it is I have relationships with the designers.”
The reason she’s yet to seek out help? Well, she chalks it up to “control issues and a big ego.” But with a love for fashion and impeccable taste, it’s no surprise that the Gossip Girl alum hops on the chance to “be creative.”
While she has a handful of looks for the books, one that was unquestionably her best was her 2018 Met Gala ensemble. For fashion’s biggest night, she stunned in an Atelier Versace gown that oozed opulence. And given that the beaded dress took a full 600 hours to make, it’s no surprise that Lively made her mark has red carpet royalty.
Even with a penchant for high heels though, the mom of three doesn’t overlook comfort. For the Free Guy movie premiere in August 2021, Lively casually rolled up with a pair of Converse kicks!
Fear not, though — by the time she made her way to the carpet with husband Ryan Reynolds, who stars in the film, she traded in her sneaks for some Louboutin stilettos, which went perfectly with her glitzy Prabal Gurung gown, Judith Leiber purse and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.
