…of herself, according to Lively’s interview in the July issue of Glamour US with Florence Welch. On the cover of the monthly, Blake wears a Michael Kors Fall/Winter 2011 look – the next best thing to nude? Part of the the interview and the full photo spread – featuring my dream wardrobe – is below!
Twitter: “People ask me why I don’t tweet. Honestly, I’m so sick of myself.”
She is the new face of Chanel’s Mademoiselle handbag: “It’s such an honor. When I found out I got [the job], you [Florence Welch] and I went to dinner and concocted this plan, like two little girls at a tea party, saying, “Oh, it would be the best if we had a party. And you’ll perform, and we’ll do it in Paris.” Like you and I were in charge of Chanel!”
Being her own stylist: “I think I became my own stylist by not knowing any better. And once I was told it was time to get one, I thought: This is one of my favorite hobbies! And I’m going to pay someone to steal my hobby from me? That’s a terrible idea!”
Getting ready for an event: “I like it to be easy. I don’t feel like I have to do so much with hair and makeup, because I’m the mannequin for these beautiful clothes, so I never want to do anything too distracting. Most of the time, I put my hair in a ballerina bun, and I take it down and it’s wavy, and then I leave. I feel shy when people are fussing on me. And my diet of choice before events is a chicken potpie from Tea & Sympathy, because they never have enough food at these things.”
Breaking up: “Every relationship you have, you’re learning and growing and taking something from that. So for me, it’s never been too dramatic of a thing when something ends.”
Acting in ‘darker roles’: “I’m drawn to those roles because [they’re so] rare, especially for someone my age. Women in film are often the prizes for the men and nowhere near as layered or complex as the men get to be. My character in The Town was written for a 37-year-old. I had to fight for that role. But also, I’m not this super-tortured soul, so it’s fun to be able to go there.”
