Blake Lively Doesn't Use a Stylist But Pals Around with Karl Lagerfeld

Whether she’s on or off the Gossip Girl set, actress Blake Lively rarely gets it wrong when it comes to her fashion choices. Which is why it’s particularly refreshing to hear that the California native has shunned the services of a stylist to take charge of her own look. “I’ve always loved fashion,’ she tells the UK edition of Marie Claire in its October issue, on which she graces the cover. “That’s why I don’t use a stylist. Number one, it’s such an expression of self,” she states with a confident air, before amusing the set with stories of her recent trip to Paris where she got to meet one of her own fashion idols, Karl Lagerfeld.  After chatting with Anna Wintour about her love of all things Chanel, she soon found herself bagging a front row seat at the fashion house’s Paris haute couture show in July and some one-on-one time with the designer himself. “So I went to dinner with Karl Lagerfeld and we got to spend a lot of priceless time together,” she gushes, excitedly. And the highlight? “Oh my gosh, riding around in Karl Lagerfeld’s Rolls-Royce with the top down. Insane!” To see Blake’s cover shoot, pick up the October issue of UK Marie Claire, or check out marieclaire.co.uk. –Monique Jessen

Thanks for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research on this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more from this post. I am very glad to see such wonderful information being shared freely out there.
