Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively on wanting a “ladylike” sense of style
Gossip Girl star Blake Lively is loving living in New York to film the new hit show - because the extreme weather changes help her to justify lots of new clothes.
She told Lucky magazine recently: “I grew up in California, so winter is this entirely new, exciting thing for me - I’ve already justified buying seven coats!”
She added that working on the fashionable show has also turned her head - but she’s always had a certain older-than-her-years style in mind: “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 — 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.”
“I’m having so much fun, but I’m trying to keep my head together too, stylewise. There are so many young women out there dressing like young girls; I want to be more ladylike and classic.”
