Blake Lively Dresses for Her Body Shape, Loves Styling Herself


Former ‘Gossip Girl’ actress Blake Lively always has such impressive style both on and off the red carpet, and she is responsible for styling herself. Blake reveals that she dresses for her body shape and has become quite knowledgeable about what works on her frame. She admits that although it annoys her because not everything works, she thinks dressing for her figure is the most flattering way to style herself. She explained:

”There are things that I see on Kate Moss and think, ‘I have to have that,’ but when I try it on me I look like a potato.’ I don’t like to wear things that don’t look right on my body – that Twenties drop waist, or even Sixties mod. If you don’t cinch in the waist it looks like I’m just hiding, you know, animals? I just start to look like the cargo part of an airplane.”

Blake doesn’t use a professional stylist because she feels very passionate about fashion and enjoys doing the work they would do because it’s a fun, enjoyable experience to pick out her own wardrobe. She comments that dressing herself is a big passion:

”Fashion is such a passion of mine. That’s the reason I don’t have a stylist, not because I think I can do it better than any of these people, but because I just love it so much that it would be like handing over something. It would be like making a cake and then handing it off to someone else to ice and decorate. Why would you do that?”
