Taking the whole tights-as-pants trend one step further, Blake Lively wore these thigh-high, faux-leather Stella McCartney boots as tights to the You Know You Want It book party Monday night. That’s right — she wore boots as her bottoms. I wonder how long it takes to get those on and off … [via NYMag.com] Keep reading »
Blake Lively and her gorge eyes — thanks to her perfectly lined inner rims — hit the town last night, above. We’ve talked about lining the inner rim of your eyes before, and I’m all about it, but, there’s one problemo: My eyes tear up something crazy and I can’t keep my eyeliner in place. To solve that rather irritating (literally and figuratively) issue, I got to testing out possible solutions and I think I’ve discovered the secret! Keep reading »
Blake Lively did her best greaser impression on February’s cover of Esquire, though I remember the guys in “Grease” wearing pants.
In unrelated news: the arch of Blake’s left eyebrow looks super-obviously Photoshopped, right? [Esquire.com]
UPDATE: Eek, how embarrassing! Commenters have correctly pointed out that the Sharks and the Jets are from “West Side Story,” not “Grease.” And I’ve seen both of those movies a million times. For shame! Keep reading »
I had uncomfortable feelings about this “Saturday Night Live”
skit where Kenan Thompson and Blake Lively
make fun of Elin Nordegren
allegedly beating up Tiger Woods
. Ever since the Woods/Nordegren shiz-nit went down over Thanksgiving, I’ve been noodling a blog post about how I’ve heard and read nothing
condemning Nordegren’s what-sounds-a-lot-like domestic violence
against her husband and the fact that he seems to be covering for her. Keep reading »
Hey, we all have our off-days, which may be the only explanation for this NY Times Style section piece about how women are like, really, really into “Gossip Girl” star Blake Lively‘s hair.
“In the 1990s, there was the ‘Rachel,’ named after Jennifer Aniston’s character on the TV show ‘Friends.’ Before the Rachel it was the ‘Farrah’ — the flipped out, flouncy hairstyle worn by Farrah Fawcett. Now, it’s Ms. Lively … whose tresses are coveted: extra long, ultra-shiny blond with a mussed-up tussle frolicking through the ends.”
Really? That’s quite a statement, guys. Here’s another quote on the subject for you, from our own Lily Q: “People need to calm down.” After all, there’s nothing more to the look than really long, slightly wavy, unbrushed hair, and I’m not jealous because that’s what I’ve got and most days it goes in a bun. Their proof that women are just dying to copy this hairstyle? Well, there’s the hard cold fact that a Google search of “Blake Lively Hair” produces 713,000 results (at their press time). Wow! At our press time “Angelina Jolie Hair” was at 5,160,000, Jennifer Aniston at 2,290,000 and Blake Lively’s own costar Leighton Meester beat her at 839,000. Just sayin’. The other “evidence” of this phenomenon is that Blake HERSELF admits that stylish women like “Vogue staffers” routinely approach her and compliment her hair. Honey, we know Vogue staffers, and that definitely doesn’t sound like any of them, unless they were being facetious and mocking you behind your back. Of course, the Style section could have just run an article about how women will always want princessy blond hair. That might have made more sense, no? [NY Times] Keep reading »
“When I was only three years old, my mom enrolled me in the first grade. My older brother was supposed to start school, but he didn’t want to go alone, so my mom told them I was six since I was so tall. But after a few weeks, they said they would have to put me in mentally disabled classes because I wasn’t up to pace with the rest of the kids. They thought that I was slow because all I wanted to do was sleep while the other kids were doing their projects. (laughs) So my mom took me out of school.

Blake Lively has established herself as something of a fashion maven, but even the sartorially adventurous have dress-down days. Or maybe she’s just in costume for the film she’s working on right now, “The Town.” Either way, she looks a little bummed out about being photographed wearing this outfit. [Boston, 11/2/09] Keep reading »
As the Daily Mail so nicely pointed out, Blake Lively‘s got some concealer on her chest (check it out above)—and what, pray tell, is she covering up? No idea, but when I try to throw cover-up on my chest it’s for one reason—chestne. (Acne on your chest for those not occasionally plagued by it.) It’s the annoying little skin secret you don’t hear about much, but loads of people suffer from it. Fortunately, I’ve got a few tricks and preventative measures you can try out to get rid of it. Blake, listen up! Keep reading »
It’s hard being Blake Lively. Between Leighton Meester‘s alleged sex tape, Ed Westwick‘s stupid tattoos, and Taylor Momsen‘s incessant partying, she’s the only class act “Gossip Girl” has got going. Yet, when it comes to the red carpet, subtlety eludes the poor thing. Keep reading »
Blake Lively and Penn Badgley are definitely the cutest actors who’ve played a couple on TV that refuse to acknowledge they’re one in real life too. Luckily, “Gossip Girls” in training all around New York are constantly telling the tabs about their Blake/Penn sightings. Like last week, the two were spotted having brunch and smooching at Five Points restaurant. According to People, “The actor was very doting and even walked his girlfriend to the bathroom at the end of their meal. The two left the restaurant arm-in-arm.”
Um, back the truck up a second. He walked her to the bathroom? I’d never heard of this particular convention until last summer, when a date offered to do this. “Why would you walk me to the bathroom?” I asked. “Oh, I thought that was common courtesy,” he said. Sweet, but I’m a big girl. I can make it the 15 feet to the bathroom on my own. I’m not really interested in having you join me for the walk, unless you’re planning to join me in there for a quickie.
I’m all for opening doors and you giving me your jacket when I’m cold, but here are eight other supposedly gentlemanly moves we don’t understand. Though any effort is always appreciated, even if it’s a little weird. Keep reading »
