All-American actress Blake Lively is no stranger to the fashion world, having graced the cover of American Vogue twice, Wintour took quite a shine to her. Soon enough Lively was front row of every big name fashion show and has just been confirmed as the new face of Chanel. Her approach to style is unfaltering, never veering too far away from her favourite style combination of killer heels and a sexy, feminine dress that has been taken straight from the runway. Lively is known for her seductive, showstopping evening style which usually features a short, leg-baring hemline and bright acidic colours. During the day she mixes neutral tonal layers with leather boots and cashmere separates for a distinctly uptown look. Take a leaf out of Blake’s book and buy into eye-catching evening-wear by Lanvin, Versace and Herve Leger.
