Blake Lively: Hollywood’s Golden Girl
2001: WITH HER MIDDLE-SCHOOL DANCE SQUAD
“I was the tallest person, obviously. I think that was before it was cool to have Kate-Moss-unbrushed hair. I can’t believe I made it, because I’m a terrible, spastic dancer, but I smile a lot. That’s probably why. I remember we had to do the Pony.” -Blake Lively
2009: WITH LEIGHTON MEESTER AT THE EMMYS IN LOS ANGELES
“I thought of Veronica Lake but wanted something more modern. I sometimes wear these really daring things on the red carpet, but that’s so not who I am. Doing something like that is always very scary for me, but also very liberating.” -BL
“I loved that Lanvin has this really heavy, chunky, metallic embellishment. That dress was way too fancy for the event, but I was obsessed with it. So I wore it anyway.” -B.L.
2011: WITH KARL LAGERFELD AT THE MET BALL IN NYC
