Blake was seen filming her upcoming movie recently, dressed in a long, olive green coat, red wide-legged pants, strappy sandals, and black leather gloves. It may be a costume, but I’d like to think part of what’s making the look work so well is Blake and her killer fashion sense. So glad to have her back in the spotlight.
After her hit show Gossip Girl wrapped, Blake took some time off from acting, focusing more on her self. Blake told Elle Magazine during her recent shoot with them, ”I’d been on Gossip Girl 10 months a year for six years, shooting 15-hour days, so I hadn’t had time to just be since I graduated from high school. It’s been nice to kind of settle into my own skin and work on things I really love.”
I’m sure a good part of her hiatus was spent spending time with Ryan, as the two tied the knot in September 2012. “Having a personal life has been really nice.” I’ll bet.
One of Blake’s favorite parts about being back is getting to play such a fashion forward role. “You don’t even need a title card to tell you what year it is — the clothes and the makeup are part of the storytelling.”
As for her own person style, Blake has basically no shame. ”I know that someday my knees are going to look like elephant knees. But for now, my hemlines are still pretty high.” Wear them proud, girl.
