How It's Done: Blake Lively's Effortless Red Carpet Waves

Apr/15/2016 at 09:00 AM ET

Now that you’ve seen Blake Lively’s braid tutorial, it’s time to move onto something a little more advanced. It’s a hairstyle perfect for your next wedding or formal event. It’s also perfect if you just want to feel Blake Lively-adjacent (like the editor in the video above, who you can see geeks out over the actress).

The man behind some of Blake’s most iconic red carpet looks, hairstylist Rod Ortega, stopped by the PeopleStyle offices to show how to create those effortless waves Blake wore to the amfAR gala in N.Y.C. in February.

The look may seem complicated, but the braid and waves combo is actually easy to achieve as long as you have these three things — a wand (Ortega used T3’s latest curler), a light texture spray like L’OrĂ©al Paris Air-Blown Texture Mist and a mascara spooly to backcomb the braid for a more textured, undone look. Easy, right? Get the rundown above.

Do you want Blake Lively‘s hair? We thought so. Thanks to the many braids she’s rocked over the years, she’s earned official Pinterest-inspo status: According to Rod Ortega, Lively’s hairstylist, the undone look he constructed for the Green Lantern Los Angeles premiere back in 2011 is one of the most pinned braids of all time. And we think it’s time to bring it back.

This Hollywood couple looks mighty glamorous, eh?

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds dressed to the nines for the Obama-hosted state dinner honoring Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Thursday. And no surprise, they looked picture perfect.

Lively, 28, chose a silver Ralph & Russo number, looking every bit the screen siren. The mother of one completed her plunging ensemble with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, a Marchesa clutch, Christian Louboutin heels and Serena van der Woodsen-esque hair. She accompanied husband and Van native Reynolds, 39, who donned Burberry.

And it appears Reynolds and Trudeau are on the road to becoming BFFs.

The prime minister tweeted a photo of the handsome pair chatting during the black-tie event, and the Deadpool actor’s smile says it all. “Our talented artists are a credit to Canada in the US & around the world,” Trudeau captioned the album that also included snapshots of Mike Myers, Michael J. Fox, Sandra Oh.

When desperate times call for desperate measures, you make do with what you got. Right, Blake Lively?

While the actress has a closet full of designer heels, she may have a shortage of socks. Lively, 28, got tired of her stilettos while on set of The Shallows on Friday, and fashioned her own “socks” out of tissue paper and hair elastics.

Blake Lively: Ryan Reynolds Is Enduring 'Ball-Busting' from Family About His 'Sexiest Dad Alive' Title

Feb/18/2016 at 08:35 AM ET

Blake Lively may have a former People’s Sexiest Man Alive, Ryan Reynolds, to accompany her to premieres — but for fashion shows, it’s a whole different story. Her mom, Elaine, has become a front-row fixture alongside her fashionista daughter. Last year, the duo attended the Marchesa show together (Elaine in a poncho borrowed from her daughter’s closet, no less) and this year, the two sat front row at Michael Kors — much to Kors’s delight.

And if one home-run outfit wasn’t enough, the mother of one was stunning earlier that same day while sitting front row at Kors’ Fall 2016 show during New York Fashion Week.

Ryan Reynolds‘ stylish wife sparkled in a nude lace design that featured embellished crystal detailing all throughout the dress. The event also served as a mother-daughter date for Lively, who sat with her mother Elaine.

With Michael, you never know what you’re going to see,” the Gossip Girl alum told Extra. “It’s always nice to see what’s been in his head, where he’s traveled this year, what inspired him.”  

Adding, “We are both happy, tan blondes. I feel happy when I wear his clothes because he is so happy and always celebrating life.”

Olivia Munn, Naomie Harris and Jennifer Hudson were also in attendance.
