Blake Lively is attracted to a man that can dress well!

Blake Lively opens up about her likes and dislikes about men in this month’s Marie Claire.

The 24-year-old ‘Gossip Girl’ actress is currently dating Ryan Reynolds, and it sounds like everything’s going great!

The beautiful blonde starlet, who also poses on the front cover in a very low-cut red satin tuxedo-jacket style dress, says she finds a fashionable man very attractive, especially ones who are well-groomed and have a timeless sense of style.

She said: ‘It’s definitely attractive when a man can dress well.

‘What I love most is when someone, guy or girl, is effortless and has this old-timey sort of feel [that] you could take a snapshot of them and they could exist in any time period.’

The Gossip Girl star also admitted she likes guys who love food because she enjoys cooking so much.

She added to America’s Marie Claire magazine: ‘To be around me, you must love food or I’m the most obnoxious person you’ve ever met.

‘I’m in a big cooking phase. That’s all I’ll talk about.’

And though Blake has no plans to marry in the near future, she admits her love of fashion has spilled over into her thoughts about a dream wedding.

She explained: ‘What I planned before I got into the business has changed.

‘Now I’m like, “Hmm, I wonder what shoes Christian [Louboutin] is going to make me. And which couture house should I go to?”‘

Ryan and Blake’s relationship is getting more and more serious by the minute and the couple just recently purchased a new house in upstate New York for more than $2 million.

After a search for the perfect love-nest, the couple reportedly bought the pricey pad in Bedford, in the Westchester area of the state of New York.

Alexander Skarsgard named the new face of Calvin Klein’s fragrance ‘Encounter’

Calvin Klein announced today that ‘True Blood’s’ sexiest vampire, Alexander Skarsgard, is the face of their new men’s fragrance Encounter, WWD is reporting.

The print ad (above) will be accompanied by a TV spot, both of which will break in September and both of which will costar the lovely Lara Stone. Steven Klein shot the campaign, which Skarsgard described as “very film noir,” and marketing guru Fabien Baron gave creative direction. Encounter will hit department store counters in the U.K. in late August, followed by a September global rollout, and is priced between $40 (for 1 oz.) and $72 (for 3.4 oz.). It will have “top notes of mandarin, cardamom and rum.” Yes, rum.

Love it!

Jessica Chastain is the new face of Yves Saint Laurent’s fragrance, Manifesto!

This just in! Actress Jessica Chastain has been named the ambassadress of a new Yves Saint Laurent fragrance, called Manifesto, due out starting at the end of August.

“We were won over by the very subtle strength of Jessica Chastain, her solar charm, her free mind,” stated Stephan Bezy, international general manager of Yves Saint Laurent Beauté at L’Oréal. “Jessica embodies the quintessence of Saint Laurent’s femininity, a woman of her day and age, independent, determined, never where you expect her to be.”

“Yves Saint Laurent is a brand that inspires me deeply,” said Chastain. “Since its creation, the brand has conveyed strong values that I cherish, such as an unwavering commitment, absolute love and feminine audacity. This new fragrance is an emblem of it all. I am [excited] to be part of this beautiful adventure.”

Chastain recently starred in films such as John Hillcoat’s “Lawless” and Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life.” She has been nominated for prizes like best supporting actress at the BAFTA Awards, the Golden Globe Awards and Academy Awards.

Upcoming movies for Chastain include Kathryn Bigelow’s “Zero Dark Thirty.” The actress will also take to the stage for “The Heiress” on Broadway.

Manifesto is to be introduced in France on Aug. 27, followed by elsewhere in Europe in September. Further launch plans include a U.S. debut in the first quarter of 2013.

It was only a matter of time: Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian launch a makeup line!

I’m surprised it’s taken them this long! In fact, I think I thought they already HAD a makeup line! Guess not! E! is reporting that the celebrity threesome are launching their own makeup line, called Khroma Beauty.

Between books, fragrances, clothes, swimwear, and a home collection (but no prepaid debit cards), we were just anxiously waiting for Kourtney, Khloé and Kim Kardashian to scramble together a cosmetic line—after all, they know their makeup—and just as we’d hoped, it happened.

Say hello to Khroma Beauty.

“We’re so excited to partner with Boldface Licensing+Branding on this new venture. There’s a glam girl in all of us and it’s a dream come true to have our own makeup line and to share it with women around the world,” the Kardashian sisters said in a statement.

If you’re getting a head start as to what you want from Santa this year, don’t hesitate to put Khroma Beauty products on your list. The E! stars will be releasing a special holiday assortment in Ulta stores this December, which will feature eyelashes, mascaras and Kardazzle Compacts. A larger array of products will launch in early 2013.

The ladies tell E! News, “Makeup has been an essential part of our lives for so long. Like fashion, it’s always changing and evolving just as we do and we can’t wait to share this new venture with our fans!”

According to the press release, the new line is said to bring a “luxury feel and quality to the mass customer, with exquisite formulas to emulate the eyes, lips and complexion looks for which the Kardashian sisters are famous.”

I never think any of their makeup looks very good, it’s so fake and plastic and slathered on with a paint roller. I take that back – I’m mainly talking about Kim’s makeup…. it’s beyond bad. Kourtney and Khloe don’t ever look as bad.
