Blake Lively was at the launch of the new Gucci Premiere fragrance this past weekend in Venice, as she's the face of the campaign.
She spoke to Vogue.com about her beauty choices, products and her ultimate icon.
She recently started the promo tour for her new and upcoming film, Savages which started in LA. At the premiere she chose a beautiful Zuhair Murad gown, she explained that the beauty could have gone two ways:
“A smoky eye and lighter lip with a very slicked-back, straight, long ponytail, or a Rita Hayworth look with the red, longer nails and little cat eyes. So I went for [the latter] because that to me was a fun, special moment.
“But the next at the premiere in New York I had this beautiful Gucci mellow yellow gown, and with that I thought I could go Grecian or A Midsummer Night’s Dream. So, to make it different from the night before, I thought: ‘I want a high pony or I want a braid’. And I had a necklace that I was considering wearing so I thought: ‘Let’s wrap it around the braid because it will make it more interesting’.”
fashion is obviously a fun hobby for the beautiful blonde, who explains that: “There’s no go-to, it’s ‘who do you want to be tonight?”.
With a flawless figure and a beautiful face it’s no wonder she’s on the arm of Ryan Reynolds. And she’s finally revealed her must0have beauty product. Meaning there’s a chance we get to look like the Gossip Girl actress too.
“I work so much, so when I’m not working I try not to use so much make-up, it’s more about taking care of myself. So I’ll use Créme de la Mer body lotion – I know it’s luxurious but oh it’s so, so good – but I try to avoid wearing make-up.
“I always like hair being a little messy because I think there’s something appealing about the whimsy of putting on a gown with any hair or make-up – just stepping into it and you’re ready.”
With the pick of a huge string of Hollywood beauties, it was surprising to find out her humble beauty and style icon.
“My mom is my biggest beauty and style icon – my sisters too. She’s so elegant and so fun and so bohemian. She does everything with such child-like wonderment. She's somebody that's so beautiful because she's so kind to everyone. She always goes out of her way to tell people they look nice. I think that's so beautiful - she's a good woman, a good icon.”
