"I was blind to the book's power," the actress said of her first reading of The Bridges of Madison County. Director/costar Clint Eastwood convinced her to play the role, which required her to gain a few pounds. "I don't think anybody has shot a love story weighing as much as I did," she joked.
At the Van Cleef & Arpels flagship store in New York City, Blake Lively celebrated the redesign in a black bias Marchesa slip dress with pastel floral embroidery, Chantilly lace cut-outs and a tulle flounce skirt. Van Cleef & Arpels jewels and black Gucci heels completed her look.
