Blake Lively Dishes on Her Favorite Look of All Time, What Style She Can't Pull Off (Seriously!) and More

Sep/22/2014 at 12:20 PM ET

Blake Lively has made headlines this year for her expanding lifestyle empire, Preserve, and has fashioned herself as kind of a humble foodie (yep, she made pal Beyoncé a “bee” birthday cake and hangs with Martha Stewart), but after chatting with the 27-year-old actress about her spot on our Best Dressed list, it’s clear that the field she’s an expert in is fashion.

“It’s such a passion of mine,” she tells PEOPLE. “That’s the reason I don’t have a stylist, not because I think I can do it better than any of these people, but because I just love it so much that it would be like handing over something.” And leave it to Lively to meld two of her favorite worlds: cuisine and couture. “It would be like making a cake and then handing it off to someone else to ice and decorate,” she explains. “Why would you do that?”

Working sans stylist truly lets Lively chart her own red carpet course. “I look at the whole story — I won’t say ‘journey’ because I saw Anna Wintour’s 73 Questions [Vogue] video (ed note: that’s the word Wintour wishes banned from fashion vocabulary) — when doing any sort of press tour or when doing multiple events, and say ok, how can I diversify these looks?” she says. “[I want] to make them exciting but also not totally manic.”

Kirsten Dunst Is Having a Major Style Moment: Let's Discuss

Sep/19/2014 at 02:30 PM ET

Despite recently blaming her man for causing her to gain what is affectionately known around here as “the boyfriend layer,” we think the look of love is really working for the The Two Faces of January star. She’s been stepping out to events all over NYC, and we’ve got to say, her style streak has been both unprecedented and seriously on-point.

Kim Kardashian's Guide to Showing Her Abs: From the Tuck-and-Tie Crop Top to Crazy Cutouts

Sep/19/2014 at 09:00 AM ET

When someone dedicates as much effort to her abs as Kim Kardashian does (who else would admit to waist training with this corset), it’s important to give credit where credit is due. No matter the season, no matter the weather and no matter whether the dress was meant to be one piece, not two, Kardashian finds away to flaunt her stomach. So we created the Kim Kardashian Crop Top Guide for Beginners and Those Who Just Want to Show Their Midriff For Any Festive Occasion. First slide, please:

We Tried It: The Rent the Runway NYC Storefront

Sep/18/2014 at 04:00 PM ET

Who tried it: Alex Apatoff, Senior Style Editor and Brittany Talarico, Associate Style Editor

What is it: The smash-hit website brings the experience to a storefront in NYC’s Flatiron neighborhood for those who are shy about renting online. You try on any number of looks in the store, rent them from the checkout and mail them back just like you would a normal RTR order.

Why we did it: We’re already well-versed in the online RTR experience (among our staff, we’ve rented looks for the Oscars, the Grammys and countless weddings) and when they invited us to check out the just-opened store before NYFW, we couldn’t resist.

Level of difficulty: Fairly high if you live out of town. Pretty painless if you’re down the street, especially if your stylist “clicks” with you right away.

Jennifer Lopez's Matchy-Matchy Blue Snakeprint Look: We Debate!

Sep/18/2014 at 01:11 PM ET

Remember when we said there were some debates happening when we put together our Best Dressed issue? Well another one of those debates is happening right now over one of the ladies on the list: Jennifer Lopez. The one thing the whole staff can agree on? She’s fearless when it comes to her style. Okay, and one more thing — she definitely doesn’t look 45. But two editors have very differing views on one of her latest look: a blue leather DSquared2 snakeskin mini dress, worn with matching heels, purse and even blue eyeshadow to the American Idol XIV photo call in N.Y.C. Read the battling sides below.
