She's become a bonafide fashion icon in her own right thanks to six seasons as the label-loving Serena van der Woodsen on Gossip Girl, so Blake Lively knows impeccable A-list style when she sees it. First on Lively's list of celebrity style crushes: None other than catwalk queen Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
"She's just perfect looking — always!" Lively, 25, raves to Us Weekly of Jason Statham's Victoria's Secret model girlfriend, 25. "She looks so regal and elegant all the time and I love that. I love that's she's a young woman who dresses of times past and isn't afraid to dress up. It's really special to be able to celebrate style like that."
In terms of her own fashion choices, Lively — a fan of designers like Louboutin and Marchesa — says she draws inspiration from centuries ago and the styles worn by the likes of Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly. "I love the sophistication and every single detail," explains the star. "I would love it I could wear little cut off gloves everyday. Go to the grocery store in a beautiful hat with lace draping over your eye. That would make me so happy."
Never afraid to push boundaries with her own look, Lively indulged her passion for fashion in September 2012 when she walked down the aisle to marry Ryan Reynolds in a wedding gown she co-designed with Marchesa's Georgina Chapman. "I've worked with her so many times and know her so well," Chapman told Us at the time of Lively, who had lots of input on her custom-designed beaded gown that featured a silk tulle bodice and rose-gold embroidery.
The actress, Chapman raves, "has a very clean sense of fashion . . .such an innate style."
