Blake Lively's 'Preserve:' She Gives a Hint About the Name (and Gushes About Husband Ryan Reynolds)

Jul/18/2014 at 12:14 PM ET

We have so many questions about Blake Lively‘s soon-to-launch “curated lifestyle” site, Preserve, including: What will she feature? Will she be writing about her happy home life? And really, what on earth does “Preserve” even mean? She’s keeping most of the answers close to the vest (for now), but in her Vogue cover story, she gives a clue as to where she might have found the name for her site — and it’s a sweet anecdote from her wedding to Ryan Reynolds.

Jun/07/2014 at 09:00 AM ET

It’s time to talk about some very important medical conditions we are currently experiencing. The technical terms (according to doctors) are “Blake Lively Hair Envy” and “Blake Lively Leg Envy” (can we also add “Blake Lively Husband Envy” to the list?). And if this week’s Most Loved Looks competition is any indication, many of you are suffering from it as well.

You’ve known about the return of overalls for a while now. You’ve seen them on noteworthy women as varied as Keira Knightley, Selena Gomez and Cressida Bonas. And maybe you’ve even embraced the trend, buying a pair for yourself and wearing them to music festivals and for weekend lounging. But now you realize that they just aren’t fancy enough for occasions like date night, high-end shopping and work. What’s a onesie-loving gal to do?

Cannes 2014 Style Awards: The Beauty and Fashion Looks That Stood Out Above the Rest

May/23/2014 at 09:00 AM ET

While the official mission statement for the Cannes Film Festival describes it as an occasion to raise awareness of films that contribute to the development of cinema, we believe that it should be rewritten to, “An event where Hollywood’s finest take fashion risks in plunging gowns, bold lips and noteworthy hairstyles.” (But that’s just our opinion.)

Over the past week we have seen some looks that have left us absolutely envious (Seriously, have you seen Blake Lively lately?) and others that we would be way too timid to try. Take a look below to see which of your favorite celebs earned nods in our beauty and fashion awards for rocking some seriously striking trends.

Boldest Lip: The first award in our beauty category goes to supermodel Coco Rocha (left). While everyone else stuck with a basic red, nude or pink, she opted for a gothic-inspired deep purple to contrast her white Gabriela Cadena column gown. (Take that, Naomi Campbell!)

Biggest Braid: When Blake Lively stepped on the scene on day one of the festival, we didn’t think her enormous plait could be rivaled (see it from all sides here) — but Eva Longoria (center) proved us wrong. The actress showed up to the Foxcatcher premiere with a voluminous fishtail that mirrored her revealing cutout.

Most Enviable Waves ( … and dresses, and husband … ): But Lively did emerge victorious in another hair category. Though tons of Cannes attendees brought the glamour, we ultimately decided that her thick, luxurious waves from the Mr. Turner premiere were the perfect topper for her Chanel Couture iridescent dress.

Highest Slit: After a while, we started to lose track of the number of thigh-high slits we saw on the red carpet this week. Though every celeb seemed to want to show off their stems, we noticed one supermodel that ultimately deserved the prize. Adriana Lima’s Alexandre Vauthier Couture bustier dress (left) took the trend to new heights with an opening that rivals Angelina Jolie’s 2012 Oscars dress.

Maximum Number of Embellishments: We were mesmerized not only by the many colors on Marion Cotillard’s Maison Martin Margiela Couture mini (center), but also by the sheer number of beads, gems and other bric-a-brac it took to make this piece (we’re not going to start counting, but we can guess the total is well into the thousands).

Biggest “YAAAAS” Moment: The second one editor saw Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s look (right), she sent it to the rest of the team with the subject line, “Dead.” All eyes were on the model as she walked down the red carpet in her strapless Gucci Première gown with perfect free-flowing tresses and flawless makeup.

Did you see any other noteworthy looks on the Cannes red carpet that deserve a style award? Let us know in the comments section and tell us who was your favorite!

Does Poppy Delevingne's Wedding Dress Look Familiar?

If you’re a firm believer in the “something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue” wedding superstition, then this one’s a doozy: British model and personality Poppy Delevingne (sister to supermodel Cara) just tied the knot in London wearing a Chanel dress that fits two of those criteria. The bride looked radiant in a Chanel Couture gown that “borrows” inspiration from look 64 in the spring 2009 collection — an “old” gown that was previously worn by Blake Lively.

The two dresses have tons in common, from the structured bodice with its short sleeves and shorter hemline, to the flowing sheer skirt at the bottom, to the allover floral appliqués. But while Lively’s was more of a bohemian take on the dress (with her braided pony, stacks of bracelets and bronzed glow), Delevingne’s is all bride — she’s got the perfectly coiffed waves, minimal jewels and, oh yeah, the lined skirt, to prove it.

Sister Cara served as maid of honor, recalling another famous British sister act by wearing a flowing cream-colored gown, plus black and white sandals and a topknot. (See a photo below.)

What do you think of this surprising bridal faceoff? Do you like Poppy’s take on the dress? Tell us in the comments!

Blake Lively Wears the Holy Grail of Braids at Cannes (Plus, See Her Gucci Gown from Every Angle)

It’s true: We relish a Blake Lively red carpet cameo. And lucky for us (and all you other Blake style enthusiasts out there), we just got our second “Wow” moment of the month. After making jaws drop in a sequin champagne-hued Gucci Première gown at the Met Gala, the star is at it again in another head-turning design by the label.

Lively kicked off the Cannes Film Festival at the Grace of Monaco premiere in a oxblood chiffon dress featuring a thigh-high slit and open back detailing. (See it in motion at left!) And while it’s no surprise the face of Gucci fragrances is often dressed in their designs, we’re still always mesmerized by how perfectly they fit her. She accessorized with ruby-and-diamond Lorraine Schwartz statement earrings and gold Casadei sandals.

“Lorraine Schwartz made the most amazing earrings ever,” Lively told PEOPLE. “She actually made them for the Met, but we ended up thinking they would look better with this dress so we saved them for Cannes.”

Probably more captivating than the dress? Her long messy braid. From the front it looks like a basic slicked back pony, but from the back the mega-plait can be studied in all its glory. It’s a really fun formal braid look (though for a daytime style, we love Lively’s fishtail.)

Naturally, the face of L’Oréal Paris had an on-point beauty look as well — an allover bronze glow, heavily-lined smoky eye and nude lips. Really the only thing missing is her hot husband Ryan Reynolds on her arm. What do you think of Lively’s look? Does it top her Met Gala moment? Is she the Queen of Cannes so far? Share your thoughts below.
