Blake Lively has been a sartorial queen ever since her days as the lovely Serena Van Der Woodsen on Gossip Girl. She is a fashion icon and her fashion choices inspire a lot of young girls. In a recent interview to Instyle, the actress, however, revealed that she used to wear Forever 21 on the red carpet when she started out. Moreover, she got away with it every time saying it was vintage. She pretty much lied about it on a regular basis, back in those days.
It is pretty relatable though, isn’t it? Don’t we all do that sometimes? Well, for Lively, this is not the first time she has confessed about her sartorial lies. Back in ’09, she told Glamour magazine that the yellow shirred mini dress she wore to the 2005 Teen Choice Awards was, in reality, a piece that cost less than 15 bucks.
“This was my second ever premiere. I’m wearing a $13 dress from Forever 21. On the red carpet people were like ‘who are you wearing?’ But when I told them, they said I shouldn’t admit to it, like it was more impressive to have a designer gown that’s thousands of dollars. After that I just told people it was vintage,” said Lively.
As of these days, Lively does wear vintage to red carpet. Last year, Blake attended the Versace pre-fall 2019 show and turned heads in an asymmetric vintage very Versace chainmail dress from the 1999 spring/summer collection. See for yourself-
