Blake Lively looks stunning on the cover of Marie Claire UK!

Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively looks gorgeous on the cover of October’s Marie Claire UK! She opens up about being a style icon and what she thinks of Chanel:

‘I’ve always loved fashion,’ she beams with child-like enthusiasm. ‘Love it!’ she repeats before adding, ‘that’s why I don’t use a stylist. Number one, it’s such an expression of self,’ then regales me with the tale of how, while filming Gossip Girl in Paris, she recently got to meet a fashion hero of hers, Karl Lagerfeld. ‘I was speaking with Anna Wintour,’ she casually name-drops the famed editor of American Vogue, ‘and we were just talking about different fashion houses and I said, “I love Chanel”, and she said, “You should come with me to the show.” I also said I loved Dior. She said, “OK, well, I’ll take you to the Chanel and Dior shows and we’ll meet with Karl and John [Galliano] afterwards.” So I went to dinner with Karl Lagerfeld and we got to spend a lot of priceless time together. Oh my gosh, riding around in Karl Lagerfeld’s Rolls-Royce with the top down. Insane!’

‘It was like a fairy tale,’ she gushes. ‘Afterwards we went to dinner and we’re climbing back inside his Rolls-Royce and someone said to me, “See, you’re so lucky, you get to see the real Paris with the real Parisians.” And I said, “What part of this do you think is the real Paris and the real Parisians! This is fairy-tale Paris.” It’s not everyday life. I mean, I know I’ll go back but it won’t be the same.’
