Life is imitating art for Blake Lively who stars as fashion forward ‘It Girl’ Serena van der Woodsen on the hit show Gossip Girl, and is on the fast-track to becoming a real life ‘Hollywood It Girl’ in her own right.
Like Serena, Blake has an enviable sense of style which has put her on everyone’s fashion radar. In the January issue of Lucky, the rising starlet dishes on her passion for fashion and emerging sense of style.
“Growing up, I was constantly borrowing clothes from my older sisters, or I’d pick out something from Urban Outfitters and my mom would tailor it to my size,” Blake tells Lucky. “I don’t think I ever dressed like a kid. Now that I’m on Gossip Girl, the wardrobe is so amazing and inspiring, it’s opened a whole new style gateway for me.”
Also like Serena, Blake possesses an inherent sense of style and is keenly in tune with what she does and doesn’t want, opting to follow her instincts rather than the masses to achieve a unique look. “I’m trying to keep my head together stylewise. There are so many young women out there dressing like young girls; I want to be more ladylike and classic.”
Move over Kate, Sienna, and Olson twins, it looks like a new style icon is about to be born.
