InStyle's 50 Best Dressed in Hollywood: 4 Reasons We Love Blake Lively


Blake Lively could have her pick of any A-list power stylist, but instead, she chooses to dress herself for every outing, both on and off the red carpet, which is why she finds herself at No. 4 on our first-ever roundup of the 50 Best Dressed Women in Hollywood.

The proof of her sartorial strength lies in the Age of Adaline promo tour she went on earlier this year when she wore more than 10 enviable outfits in a single day—again, mind you, without the help of a stylist. Another strength is the breadth of her encyclopedic fashion memory: For a premiere, she asked to wear a red lace ruffled Monique Lhuillier creation that was from a three-year-old collection. And it paid off—it's one of our favorite looks of hers this year.

What is it we love about Blake Lively? let us count the ways. She doesn't use a stylist. Lively makes all of her own fashion decision, a rarity in Hollywood. She says that would be like making a cake and then handing if off to someone else to ice and decorate. And has she ever gone wrong? She set a record for outfit changes on a press tour this year. She wore different designs for each interview and appearance She made more than ten in one day alone to promote the Age of Adlai. She has an encyclopedic fashion memory and she remembers everything she likes. When she requested a ruffle and lace red dress from Monique [UNKNOWN] for a film premiere this year, she said she wanted one from fall 2012. She's a pose pro. She even has a signature move down pat, the cleverly placed hand on the hip. She's Blake Lively, and she knows her style.
