Blake Lively does all of her own styling, which is a rare occurrence in Hollywood where most celebrities hire someone to source all of their looks for major events. Instead, Lively prefers to do it herself. “Probably because I have control issues and a big ego — that’s probably the honest answer,” Lively explained at a Barneys x Tod’s event in New York on Thursday, Women’s Wear Daily reports.
However, Lively admitted that she doesn’t do it completely solo. She often works directly with designers for custom pieces or have an assistant help her make calls and request the looks she sees at fashion shows. When you are your own stylist, you have to think ahead, apparently — at least by about two months. Lively already has her Met Gala look in the works.
She didn’t go into any more detail about the dress, but we already know she has an impeccable sense of style. “I love design and I love fashion and it’s a way to be creative,” Lively said to Women’s Wear Daily. Rather than hiring someone to painstakingly curate her looks, Lively gets more involved with the big picture while leaving the details to her team — basically, living the fashion dream.
