Blake Lively covers the July 2012 issue of Marie Claire US. The Gossip Girl star has been keeping a low profile since hooking up with Ryan Reynolds – even skipping the Met Gala in May – but she’s about to make a comeback, promoting her latest movie, Savages. Blake wears a red Balmain design for Marie Claire’s cover and also poses in a selection of looks by Marios Schwab, Jenny Packham and Dolce & Gabbana.
In the accompanying interview Blake continues to play the “I don’t have a stylist” card (I’m still not 100% convinced), but does admit she has help doing call-ins. “My assistant will call fashion houses for me,” Blake says. “But I always pick the outfit, shoes, jewelry, and a lot of times I do my own hair and makeup for events. Sometimes I think, God, why do I do this to myself?”
Personally I’m not keen on the cover, but I do like Blake’s editorial – especially the image of her wearing Marios Schwab’s gorgeous embellished gown [below]. I wonder if we’ll also see Blake on the cover of US Vogue this summer…
