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: Mila Kunis’ second Dior campaign!

Mila Kunis is back for a second Dior campaign! The new ads promote the Miss Dior handbag, and Mila fits the part perfectly!

The black-and-white spots, photographed in Los Angeles by Mario Sorrenti with styling by Carine Roitfeld, depict Kunis as the kind of woman accustomed to attention from throngs of paparazzi, and to smoldering in front of the camera. The young actress, who won wide acclaim for her turn in 2010’s “Black Swan,” is currently on screens in the Seth MacFarlane comedy “Ted.”

The worldwide campaign for Dior is to make its debut in the August issue of Elle Hong Kong on July 21, followed by a range of September issues, including Bazaar and Tatler in the U.K., Vanity Fair in the U.S. and Vogue Paris in France. Dior also plans to unveil the images, along with behind-the-scenes imagery and mini film, on its Miss Dior Web site as of Wednesday.

Love the new ads!


PICS: Lana del Rey poses for H&M!

26-year-old Lana del Rey has had quite a year! Since dropping her debut album in January, the singer has shot into stardom.

The singer was picked by H&M to appear in their fall ads. The campaign, which launches in September, shows their new collection – which they hope will “inspire” their customers.

Chloe Bowers, H&M PR Manager, said: ‘We were looking for a style icon and singer to model our fall collection and Lana Del Rey was the perfect choice.

‘We think she shows our fall fashion in a very inspiring way.’

Lana will star in Press ads and a commercial for the brand, which reported a 20 per cent rise in quarterly profits following ‘very strong sales’ of its spring collection.

Director Johan Renck came up with the idea that Lana should record the song ‘Blue Velvet’ for the commercial.

The theme of the campaign is a modern and feminine woman with a soft attitude.

Curves and waist are important in autumn’s silhouette, with a focus on knitwear and tweed, the store says.

Colours include powder tones and accessories in wine red.

‘The mood is very LA noir,’ Donald Schneider, H&M’s creative director, told WWD.

I’m torn on these ads. I love the clothes, and even the pictures, but I’m not sure how I feel about Lana as the model. Ok, maybe it’s just her hair I’m not so sure about.

What do you guys think?


Lady Gaga poses nude with tiny men crawling all over her body in her new fragrance ad!

You knew Lady Gaga’s perfume ad was going to be a bit shocking.

Today we’re getting our first look at the promotional pictures for her new perfume, Fame. The 26-year-old singer posted the picture on her Twitter account, saying ‘Photo by STEVEN KLEIN. The First Ever Black Eau de Parfum. Model: Lady Gaga.’

Before she revealed the ad, she explained why she was feeling nervous about sharing the new picture.

‘I won’t lie I’m a bit nervous. its been a while since i’ve shared some work with you. But i’m so proud of Steven+I, we really did not sleep!’

In the new ad, Gaga is seen lying on her side, nude, with small men crawling all over her body.

Her new perfume is a black liquid that goes on clear, and it will be released next month.

Renato Semerari, president of Coty Beauty, said: ‘She is an artist that is never satisfied with the status quo – she always has this way of challenging everybody and trying to do something more, something different.

‘She has her own ideas and very often they’re very interesting and challenging…really, she’s not the one who says, “It’s OK, let’s move on and turn the page.” She’s always thinking, “Can we do more?”

‘This is a very stimulating partnership; and she’s pushed us with her ideas, we’ve come with our own ideas – and the combination of the two is very valuable.’

Coty hailed Gaga as ‘zeitgeist in a bottle’ and are delighted with her innovation.

Bernd Beetz, chief executive officer of Coty Inc., said: ‘Lady Gaga joins a legendary cast of talent for whom Coty has created scents.

‘Gaga’s launch represents my personal credo brought to life….Innovate or die! Absolutely everything about this launch is innovative, from the bottle, to the juice, to the lady herself….She’s zeitgeist in a bottle.’

Gaga explained the fragrance’s name relates to her belief that anyone can have fame.

She told WWD: ‘Fame is an illusion – if you really want it, anyone can have it.’

I have to admit, I’m really interested to find out what this perfume smells like. I don’t see myself buying it – but I would like to see (smell) what all the buzz is about!
