Beauty Crush: Blake Lively's Full and Sexy Curls

In addition to her long, lean legs and flawless, radiant complexion, Blake Lively has some seriously enviable hair, which she usually styles into a sleek and shiny blowout.

But in NYC on Wednesday, the 24-year-old newly single star (who just called it quits with her beau of five months, Leonardo DiCaprio) switched things up and opted to go all natural with glossy golden curls.

Dressed in a red mini skirt, blue and white top and a black leather jacket, the Gossip Girl actress indulged in some retail therapy, coincidentally on the Upper East Side.

We love seeing Lively work her natural beachy texture in undone tousled waves. Plus, the laid-back hairstyle adds a casual, California touch to her otherwise city-chic ensemble. (The 5-foot-10 star rocked daring 5.25-inch Fendi snakeskin platform sandals that cost $835!)
