When you don’t have someone to model yourself after, you’re going to make mistakes.
– Blake Lively
I love to photograph the gorgeous landscapes when I travel.
If people could walk around in suits of energy, that would be cool. Other than that, I don’t think men should wear spandex.
I love layering things. Fall is my favorite time of the year to get dressed.
My dad was an English professor.
The Gucci woman can be the equestrian woman, the woman in the suit, the woman in the flowy bohemian dress, or the couture woman.
What can I say? I feel good when I’m wearing heels. I feel sexier, attractive.
I have smuggled so many ingredients across so many borders, like shallot confit from Thailand, or a new sauce from New Orleans not approved by the FDA.
I’ve kissed just three people in my life, other than stuff that I’ve done for TV or movies. I know – I’m weird!
I always loved fashion.
Fragrance is a bit of a selfish gift because it’s comforting when you’re near someone and you recognize their smell.
I always want to wear clothes that my children will one day look back on and say, ‘Oh, you looked amazing – why didn’t you keep that?’ Not, ‘Oh my God – I can’t believe you wore that.’
I love being at home and cooking and baking.
It’s definitely attractive when a man can dress well.
If a guy can play Guitar Hero with me and sit at home and watch the Food Network and read magazines with me, that’s good. I don’t think there are many guys that’s fun for. It’s a lot to ask.
The Green Lantern is a unique superhero because it’s not that he’s super that is his focus; it’s that he’s a man. He’s very human. That’s his greatest strength and his greatest weakness.
There have been so many things written about me that are untrue and horrifying.
I think that when you smell good, you feel good. You know how when you’re in a room and someone else smells good, you’re like, ‘Where is that?’
After my first year on ‘Gossip Girl,’ everybody said, ‘You’ve got to do a big commercial movie, ride this wave.’
I could probably make more money if I did more commercial projects.
Forget the fake syrupy stuff. Melt down a bar of chocolate, mix it into some warmed up whipping cream, and put it on top of ice cream. Add some sprinkles, and you’ve got a delicious treat.
I love a challenge.
I think baking is an incredible thing; cooking in general is an incredible thing.
Ngila Dixon is such an incredible costume designer. She’s such a cool, stylish woman. She has such an understanding of character.
Christmas for me is all about spending time with my family. I cherish any chance we have to spend all day together making gingerbread houses, baking cookies, or sitting around and watching movies.
I feel like heels must be a workout! I know that they’re really bad for you, but I run around in heels a lot and go up a lot of stairs, so maybe that’s my terrible workout. I know that’s not really a workout.
I have to learn to knit.
My hair is a safety net for me, so I love to have it down and full and relaxed.
I want babies. Lots of babies. Of course!
Each day, I choose my age.
