It’s no wonder why we absolutely adore Blake Lively. We’ve been following her every move from her breakout role in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, to Gossip Girl, to The Town, and to the more recent, Savages. Blake Lively is talented, gorgeous and intelligent– a triple threat! Another thing we love about Blake Lively is her style. She always looks well put together and plays up her assets, aka, legs that run for miles. This particular look is relaxed, yet elegant. And the Givenchy Brown Antigona bag pulls it all together.
The gorgeous bag you see in Lively’s hand is the Givenchy Brown Antigona, made of cow leather. It retails for about $2400. The handles are a darker shade of brown and look great with the leather. We’ve seen Lively with this bag numerous times, which is probably why the leather on her bag appears softened. The bag’s size and shape makes it perfect for running errands, going to work, and stuffing with essentials. As you can see, it is a versatile bag because it also comes with a long shoulder strap. This bag is perfect for an every day look. Pair it with nude tones like Blake Lively and you’ll look a star too.
It’s the final season of Gossip Girl, ladies! That means this is the last year we’ll be receiving stills of the gorgeous Leighton Meester and Blake Lively shooting for the high fashion TV series. Both stars are fairly low maintenance outside of their roles as Serena and Blair, so we doubt we’ll be seeing these lovely ladies rocking the same level of trends after shooting wraps. The many designer items in their GG wardrobes is courtesy of many fashion houses that send things free of cost just to garner publicity. Not every starlet can afford a new bag a day or is interested in burning a hole in her pockets to do so.
The rest of us mere mortals like to awe in wonder in their hot off the runway accessories in the hopes of finding a *ahem* similar piece somewhere on the market. This colorful bag is the kind of piece you can find a budget version of without too hard a search. This one is the 3.1 Phillip Lim Small Lark Duffel.
It’s not the first time Blake has been seen carrying a colorful Phillip Lim handbag on the set of Gossip Girl…it seems the show’s stylists have a deep love for the designer. Also, this bag is actually from Spring 2012 but the stylists have chosen to have her carry it as they shoot for fall. Sometimes a bag is so cute that it doesn’t matter that it’s last season – even if you’re one of Hollywood’s hottest stars!
How lucky is the cast of Gossip Girl? Other than Little J, who was condemned to being the “poor girl from Brooklyn turned grubby rebel outcast”, everyone always gets to wear the latest trends way ahead of everyone else. So ahead that during the time they’re filming, us mere mortals aren’t even aware of the trends Blair and Serena are creating for us!
This Jimmy Choo Lara bag is the perfect type of printed hobo bag to carry to school or work. Blake’s dark trench and worried look gives hint that the directors were shooting some heavy scenes for the show in New York. The Jimmy Choo handbag adds a touch of elegance to the look and the printed scarf prevents the outfit from being too mournful.
A point to note is that the protruding black part of the bag is just an optical illusion! The black top appears as though it’s part of the bag but is in fact a Marc Jacobs laptop sleeve. However, don’t be disappointed – this just goes to show how much you can stuff in this multi purpose bag. You can use it while traveling and still look as stylish as Blake does.
Just don’t forget to make your tresses as va-va-voom as hers to complete the look.
This spring, no one is schooling us better in the art of color blocking than Blake Lively. Sure, she’s probably had the help of a professional stylist or two, but she still looks amazing in this colorful outfit and eye catching clutch. It even looks as though it’s cozy and comforting to hold.
The bright blue bag the Gossip Girl star is clutching was designed by Emily Cho. The turqouise python double folded clutch perfectly complements the lime trench coat, from the Spring 2012 Reed Krakoff collection. The baby pink shoes add a softness to prevent the outfit from becoming a tad too loud and bold.
Judging by the blonde beauty’s wide grin, she knows she looks great just as much as we do!
This spring, British superstar TV presenter Fearne Cotton has been spotted many times with her beloved Mulberry Taylor Oversized Satchel. The bag was previously seen on American It girl Blake Lively, who’s often toted around by fashion heavy weights Karl Lagerfeld and Anna Wintour. Blake Lively’s jump from successful actress to fashion It girl is slightly ironic, considering that her look is effortless on the show Gossip Girl. Costar Leighton Meester plays Blair, a character who quickly became a fashion icon in teen circles as well as beauty blogs and fashion mags. Unfortunately for Leighton, it’s the effortless Serena’s real life persona who’s more magnetic in the field of fashion. Maybe that’s why Fearne took a cue from Blake’s book and got her hands on this vibrant Mulberry bag.
However, Fearne has no need to be a copycat. She’s a brand ambassador for the fashion house Mulberry and they even dressed her for Kate and William’s royal wedding. The pretty blonde’s often seen toting a Mulberry bag and this is just one in her countless collection. Recently, Fearne even auctioned off one of her Mulberry bags for charity. Clearly this one’s become a favorite since the star’s been seen with it so many times. Perhaps the quirky, irresistible color is what draws her to the bag.
Say what you want about Blake Lively, but there’s one thing you can’t deny—she’s officially the sweetest celebrity ever. A few months ago she sent cupcakes to Burberry’s Christopher Bailey as an apology for missing his show. Now, she’s waxing poetic about Chanel’s recent Resort 2012 presentation.
Seriously, there isn’t a bad bone in Blake’s body! She says:
“Every piece just made me smile. My mood was every single bit of that collection. The hardest part was thinking ‘I want to wear every single thing here.’ I never thought I’d be able to come to a Chanel fashion show, let alone be here working with them and be stood here wearing Chanel couture. This is so special.”
Based on these comments, it’s pretty easy to see how Blake charmed Karl Lagerfeld!
