Blake Lively Reveals Hollywood Style Secrets
Blake Lively is one of our favorites, and not just because she’s friends with Beyoncé. In a recent interview from InStyle’s May issue, Blake revealed that she’s not always worn designer labels to Hollywood events.
I wore Forever 21 much longer than I admitted. I just started saying it was vintage because I was so shamed for it. [laughs] For me, fashion is a form of self-expression. It also really takes me out of my comfort zone. One of the reasons I’m an actor is that I’m naturally very shy, so it’s liberating to dress up and pretend to be someone else.
And apparently Blake is big into pretending — which makes sense she’s an actress. She says she got her red carpet smolder down pat by pretending to be J.Lo!
With some outfits you need to do a smolder because if you’re wearing a slit up to your hip bone and you’re smiling like you’re on Space Mountain, it just doesn’t go together. It took me a few years to learn it too. If you pretend that you’re J.Lo, that helps.
Love this. Kudos to Blake for keeping it real. Do you ever pretend your fast fashion fits are the real designer deal?
