Blake Lively’s disgustingly blessed genes.

Blake Lively is absolutely stunning, always has been. I don’t know about you, but when someone is as gorgeous as Blake, I like to imagine that they 1) hate their lives, 2) mo’ money mo’ problems, 3) starve themselves and 4) spend all their free time sweating at the gym. Apparently none of these things are true, as Blake admits she doesn’t work out at all, and has been “very, very lucky”. Bitch.

Blake sat down with the British magazine More, promoting her new movie ‘Savages’. Here are some clips:

Blake on her insecurities: “I have insecurities like any girl. I used to be really shy and unconfident. I hated being tall. Walking the red carpet is so scary, so I pretend to be Marilyn Monroe – someone who owned their sexuality and projected this incredible aura of self-confidence.”

Style pressure: “There’s a lot of pressure to constantly find the best designer outfits. As a teenager, my mum was constantly after me to dress better. She encouraged me to dress up and discover my own style. I love fashion and shopping though, just like any girl.”

She still claims she doesn’t exercise: “I don’t exercise, but I will start one day. I’m 24 now, so I guess I’ve been very, very lucky that it doesn’t show that I like to eat. I should probably start working out I guess!”

What she looks for in a man: “When I look for a partner there has to be a strong connection. He needs to be my best friend, whether he’s macho or sensitive – it doesn’t matter. He also has to make me laugh. I enjoy someone who’s a lot of fun to be with. He also needs to be kind, patient, caring and not take himself too seriously. And of course, he needs to appreciate my cooking! I’m very domestic.”

She thinks cooking is sexy: “I really like to cook. Cooking makes me feel sexy. I think there’s something so sensual about it – the smells, the touches, the flavours, the experience of creating something,” she explained. “And you know, when you’re doing it with someone you love, creating that together, I think it’s really attractive.”

She can’t wait to have babies: “I want to be a mom someday. I’m upset that my nieces and nephews aren’t my own children,” she sighed. “It’s something I can’t wait for and I’m so excited about.”

I think she’s basically saying she’s ready for boyfriend Ryan Reynolds to put a ring on it. Who wouldn’t be!?

FIRST LOOK! Blake Lively’s NEW perfume ad for Gucci!

Call me crazy, but someone over at Gucci gave Blake Lively a nose job! That is 100% NOT her real nose! Either Blake’s had a nose job, or someone gave her a photoshop nose job. Either way, that’s not the real deal.

Two weeks ago Blake Lively was given a major endorsement by Gucci to promote their new perfume, Gucci Premiere. Rumor has it she insisted on the director of ‘Drive’, Nicolas Winding Refn, to film the commercial for the perfume, which I can’t wait to see!

Blake already models for Chanel, and according to sources, was hand-picked by Karl Lagerfeld himself.

What do you think of her new ad?

1) Spray hair with the Angelo David Long and Strong Detangler, followed with the Angelo David Sea Silk Styling Mousse to prepare for styling
2) Begin blow drying hair by sections using the Angelo David Round Brush, bringing hair all the way to the back.
3) Gather hair and begin your fish braid. Divide hair into two sections. Take a small portion of hair from one side then bring it to the other, repeating this process back and forth. We want a clean, yet effortless feel, so it is ok if strands of hair starts sticking out.
4) Continue braiding until you reached desired length, then secure the braid with an elastic
5) Finish the look with a great hairspray, like L’oreal Tex Infinium Professional, for a firm hold without creating stiffness

Blake Lively named the face of Gucci’s new fragrance, Gucci Premiere

Blake Lively, who last year fronted a handbag campaign for Chanel, is the face of Gucci’s new fragrance, Gucci Premiere. Named after the brand’s couture line of the same name, the scent is meant to evoke Old Hollywood charm, glitz, and glamour, WWD reports. “Celebrities and red-carpet glamour have always been a part of the Gucci heritage,” Gucci creative director Frida Giannini explained.

This is Lively’s first fragrance campaign. “Gucci is a staple. It is a brand I have always looked up to, because to me it represents strength,” the actress told WWD. “In their designs, in their images, in what they stand for philanthropically, and especially in their fragrance.…I couldn’t be more proud to be working with Gucci and its heart, Frida.”
