Blake Lively

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

 “Gossip Girl” glamazon Blake Lively has risen from T.V. star to a favorite of Vogue and everyone from Karl Lagerfeld to Christian Louboutin, who named a strappy shoe “The Blake” after meeting her in Paris.

Lively grew up in a showbiz family and quickly followed her parents’ and siblings’ steps–and she’s definitely made it to stardom. During her senior year at Burbank High, Lively got the role as Bridget on “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” and the rest, as they say, is history.

The California-bred blonde manages to balance a youthful cool with a sophisticated twist, like when she wore short shorts and a sequined Chanel jacket to meet Lagerfeld.  Lively’s looks are always head-turning and often provocative—helped by the fact that she has longer-than-long legs and a bod that has made her a sex symbol. “Everybody has such different bodies,” she’s said. “You have to think of your favorite few outfits and say, ‘What is it about these outfits that I like on my body?’” Well, Blake, we can’t think of anything that wouldn’t look beautiful on your curves.

We think you’ve made it when you can say you are a muse of Lagerfeld and have dated Leo (DiCaprio, that is).
