Blake Lively is on the July issue of Marie Claire and per usual looks hot.The Gossip Girl star wears Balmain on the cover, and a variety of gorgeous threads in the spread including Jenny Packham and Dolce & Gabbana. Just to make us a little more jealous of Lively, she apparently styles herself for red carpet events, or, “half-styles”.
“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!”
So why do it?
“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.”
