When we heard that Blake Lively was going to be the new face of Gucci’s perfume we thought it was a great match – as the Gossip Girl actress has looked particularly polished and super-glam in recent times, shaking off her character Serena’s boho look. And her new super shiny look suits Gucci sooo well.
There is a plush film in the pipeline to promote the new fragrance, Premiere, and we love Blake’s classic Hollywood siren look complete with vampy red lipstick.
Have two of our favourite celebs sparked a micro-trend? Rihanna and Blake Lively have both been spotted wearing traffic-stopping red suits in the past week. While the coordinating colours thing is very this summer, the red suit has been an almost constant presence on the catwalk in recent years as well as on countless celebs. Is it a look you’ll try? Chris de Burgh is a fan.

I’ve just read an article in Glamour magazine saying that out of all the SS12 trends men like the sports luxe look best…and we bet this cover featuring Blake Lively in a sport Victoria Beckham mini dress will be quite popular too.
I love the sports details starting to trickle into high street stores, but for me this shoot is just a little too lads’ mag. Sports luxe works best with clean lines, crisp fabrics and bright colours so while Blake undoubtedly looks great, I’ll be skipping the mesh/fishnet extras and just-out-of-the-shower hair.
Having said that, I love the front cover where Blake looks super polished in a Victoria Beckham dress…and the Alexander Wang jumper and ski pants look.
What do you think?

We’re all at sea with Gossip Girl atm – when is it coming back?! But according to the US, Blake Lively‘s character Serena van der Woodson steps into Marilyn Monroe’s pink shoes for a Gentlemen Prefer Blondes moment in GG’s 100th episode. We can’t wait to see it.
Who’s your favourite nouveau Monroe? xoxo
Yup- we obviously wear designer bling to cook in too. We love the simple sheer shirt tucked into the super glam skirt and incredible golden flower brooch.
In case you were wondering, Blake was helping out at a charity event at Sprinkles bakery in New York with these special cupcakes raising money for Oxfam’s Somalia disaster fund, according to The DM.
We’re always impressed by Blake Lively’s red carpet bravery and high fashion looks as Serena van der Woodson in Gossip Girl, but we also love her off-duty casual personal style.
Here’s some inspiration…
