Is it just me, or does Blake Lively’s style just keep getting better and better? I’m 99% sure it’s not just me. She kills
every red carpet ( see: her most recent Met Gala look) and even though she’s never worked with a stylist, she always owns the street style game — whether she’s stepping out with a friend or picking up one of her mini-mes from school.
The actress rose to fame in the role of Serena van der Woodsen on
, who's Gossip Girl wardrobe was in a league of its own. IRL, Lively is just as chic. Through the years, she's been known to reach for luxury brands like Chanel, Dior, and Versace, and loves (I mean loves) her Louboutins, when it's time to go full glam for a premiere. Other end of the fashion spectrum, you can also catch her in a pair of affordable Reformation overalls with booties and trendy sneakers on the day-to-day.
All this is to say, she know what works for her (read: sultry gowns and head-turning suits) and she runs with it. The inimitable actress and mom of three always leaves us wanting more, when it comes to her fashion choices. Keep scrolling to see exactly what I'm talking about.
