‘Gossip Girl‘ goddess Blake Lively proved her humanitarian interests over the weekend by speaking publicly at ‘Chime For Change.’ The Gucci-fronted event, held at London‘s massive Twickenham Stadium, featured performances by some of the most prominent voices in the music industry. This includes Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez & Madonna, and her bestie Florence Welch too!
The aim of the event was to raise money for the charity, which is a global campaign for girls’ and women’s empowerment, and it was founded by the fashion house, for which Blake models a fragrance for. The beauty spoke on the red carpet about the most important women in her life, what she wants for women, and drooled over Beyoncé, who she was once famusly quoted as saying: “I want Beyoncé to be the mother of my children!” I’m sure that can be arranged honey…PS A+ for the hair, make up and accessories…simply stunning.
Blake Lively in ‘Hervé Léger’
Eric Daman often dressed Upper East Side Queen Serena van der Woodsen (aka Blake Lively) in ‘Hervé Léger‘ on ‘Gossip Girl‘, and this was one of his greatest choices. The fashion expert/ designer, who worked closely with the show throughout its run, selected this burgundy number for a 2009 episode of the series.
Whilst Blake‘s dress would have cost well over a thousand, you can buy an almost identical copy for just £121.38 thanks to ‘Lust Dresses.’ It features a wide cut along the bust, and the vertical paneling takes inches of the post-Christmas waist! It is available in sizes Small-Large online.

Tomorrow the 1st episode of the final season of ‘Gossip Girl‘ with will air in America, and the show’s producers are pulling out all the stops to make it an unforgettable ending.
The show’s executive producers Stephanie Savage and Sara Goodman have created a new video in which they admit they know who the culprit is, and that their identity will be announced very soon. “For 5 years, that’s the secret she said she’d never tell. But this year, she’s telling,” the pair tease in the clip below.
‘Gossip Girl‘ beauty Blake Lively married boyfriend of a year Ryan Reynolds in front of close family and friends on Sunday. The ceremony took place in Charleston, South Carolina, at the ‘Boone Hall Plantation‘.
Whilst we are still waiting for an official announcement from their representatives, the designing duo from fashion house ‘Marchesa‘, Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, have released a statement confirming that they worked with the actress on her dress: “It had a hand-draped silk tulle bodice adorned with crystal and rose gold embroidery.” Her shoes were by pal ‘Christian Louboutin‘, and his suit was by ‘Burberry‘. No word on whether her cast-mates were in attendance yet.
Ok, calm down people…he isn’t totally off the market yet! After a bit of hurried research, I’ve found that Ryan Reynolds hasn’t yet sealed the deal, ‘put a ring on it’, whatever you want to call it, with Blake Lively. There was a bit of a panic online earlier on when a police officer accidentally referred to Blake (on several occasions) as Ryan‘s “wife”, instead of girlfriend, prompting fans to think that they’d eloped. The innocent mistake was made during a routine paperwork session, and ‘TMZ‘ claim that the report in question was filed after Ryan complained that he was being followed by a photographer.
It reads: “Upon arrival, I spoke to Ryan Reynolds and his wife. They explained that this blank colored vehicle was observed outside their residence, and proceeded to follow their vehicle in an erratic manner. They believed that this individual was a photographer attempting to obtain pictures of them. Mr. Reynolds and his wife were advised to contact police should any persons enter their property.”
Whilst they’re not married as of yet, it looks like they could be headed down that road, as lately he’s been showering his lady in affection, and writing little love poems for her. “He writes personalized sonnets to Blake via email and handwritten letters. When he travels and is away from her, he is constantly serenading her with poems and love letters. He loves sending her excerpts of his favorite quotes. Blake thinks it’s so romantic. Scarlett was always embarrassed and thought Ryan was silly when he did this. Blake is the complete opposite — she saves everything.”
Blake Lively won’t exactly be chuffed to hear that her ‘Savages‘ co-star Taylor Kitsch has described their on-screen sex scenes as “very awkward.”
He told ‘People‘ magazine: “It was very awkward to do, you know, and I was just glad it was over with to be honest. And it’s such a big part of my character and who he is, and that’s how you meet him. So its a pretty intense reveal, no pun intended. A lot of sexual improv was going on there. God knows we had 2 weeks of rehearsal …and then we shot the sex scenes on the day I think I knew Blake 3 days…4 days maybe.”
‘Gossip Girl‘ stunner Blake Lively has told ‘Bullett‘ magazine of her relief to finally see the end of the hit TV show. Although she admits that she has enjoyed the experience, she doesn’t feel like its her best work to date, and that she has played roles with most substance since.
In an interview about moving on from her fashionista role, she disclosed: “I think the best way to describe it is like someone who really enjoyed high school, and is like, I’m a senior and I can’t wait for the next thing! ‘Gossip Girl‘ was so great, but what’s the next challenge in life? Because, you know, 6 years is a long time. And as an actor who plays a caricature of myself on the show, I don’t think I’d say, “Watch ‘Gossip Girl‘ for my best quality of work.” But I am very lucky to have had that experience. I’m ready to move on with my life, and I can’t do that with ‘Gossip Girl‘ tracking my every move.”
She may play the perfect princess of the Upper East Side in ‘Gossip Girl‘ as Serena van der Woodsen, but Blake Lively‘s latest acting gig doesn’t require such a high-maintenance beauty regimen.
In a series of stills from her upcoming movie ‘Savages‘, the blonde can be seen with both of her arms covered in blood in a very disheveled state. Other snaps prove her to have acquired some new tomboy skills, as she points her gun at the camera lens on a shooting range. ‘Gossip Girl‘ fans will find her new image quite ironic, given that the author behind the show, Cecily von Ziegesar, wrote a book called ‘Psycho Killer‘ last year, in which Blake‘s character becomes the mass murderer of the city.
Director Oliver Stone shared some personal pictures of them filming on a Facebook page: “Blake took a lot of photographs along the way. She’s quite creative and is always exploring things, including her bloody hands. I won’t tell you how they get bloody, but you’ll see for yourself.”
‘Savages‘ opens in American cinemas on July 6. The film is based upon 2 Marijuana growers, who fight a Mexican drug gang that kidnap their shared girlfriend.
‘Gossip Girl‘ fanatics everywhere (including me) will be heartbroken to hear that the classiest show on TV has just been axed by ‘The CW.’ The show, which parades the best of fashion, has announced that this autumn’s 6th series of ‘Gossip Girl‘ will be its last, and that there will only be 11 episodes instead of the usual 24. It has been on our screens since 2007 on ‘ITV2‘ here in the UK, and is shown in 197 countries- quite an achievement!
In the 6th series Nate Archibald (played by Chace Crawford) will develop an obsession with finding out who the mysterious ‘Gossip Girl‘ actually is. Chace told ‘The Mirror‘: “For me, it’s going to be tough to leave New York City. And it’s definitely an end of an era. It was college for everyone really. If I got to write the show, it would be a very different thing. I would make Chuck ‘Gossip Girl‘ and I would turn my character into Patrick Bateman from ‘American Psycho‘. That would be a weird twist of events.”
The show’s writers themselves tweeted: “Looks like the secret’s out, we’ve been picked up! But we’ve been here scheming our final season for weeks. See you in the fall! XOXO.”
Concerned actress Blake Lively has taken out a restraining order against one crazy fan after he stalked her numerous times on the ‘Gossip Girl‘ set, and tried to contact her mother by phone several times.
The man in question, Sergei Mifle, contacted Elaine, and caused Blake to worry about not only her own safety, but that of her mother. A picture of Sergei was attached to the legal petition, in which he wears a baseball cap, polo shirt and coat.’TMZ‘ claim that the man believe he shares a “metaphysical” connection with the actress.
According to the application: “Respondent Milfe‘s harassing and stalking behaviour has steadily intensified between February 1 and the present causing Lively and her mother significant distress and anxiety.” The order, which was successfully granted by a judge, will prevent him from coming within 100 yards of the actress or indeed Elaine Lively.
