Inspiration: Blake Lively by Txema Yeste for Marie Claire July 2012
Blake Lively’s new film Savages hits theaters on July 6th, thus you can expect to see a great deal of her over the next month. She is Marie Claire’s July 2012 cover girl, in a red tuxedo dress from Balmain.
Check out some of my favorite quotes from Blake about her style from the article:
“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. Sometimes I think, God, why do I do this to myself? It’s so much extra work!”
“Because I love fashion. It’s such an expression of self. I often see people and they look great, but I can identify who styled them. Every stylist has a signature. Maybe it sounds jerky, but I’m lucky to be on such a fashion-centric show [Gossip Girl]. There’s no designer I don’t have access to.”
“People like to draw parallels between my life and the scandalous stories on Gossip Girl. I dress the same as my character, so they think, She lives this life on and off set. I recently shared how many boyfriends I’ve had [four], and people were like, ‘That’s impossible!’ But it’s true. I’ve been with very few people. If I’m not with somebody who really excites or inspires me, then I’d rather be by myself.”
