L’Oreal deal? Check. New lifestyle website? Check. Flawless string of red carpet looks, and numerous subsequent appearances on best-dressed lists everywhere? Check. Vogue cover? You can check that one, too. Blake Lively is Vogue’s latest cover girl, and though she’s found herself gracing the cover of the fashion bible before, it’s different this time around. It’s been a while since we’ve seen the blonde beauty on screen (RIP Gossip Girl), but that’s because her new lifestyle website, Preserve, is what she’s been focusing on. It’s a project that she insists doesn’t involve “trying to show you the perfect life or the aspirational life. It’s real life…It’s not about me.” Ahh, how refreshing. But, we digress, because Jonathan Van Meter’s Vogue feature is, after all, all about Lively. In it, she touches on her love of food and perpetual hunger (we feel you, girl), and her modest southern upbringing. She talks about her return to the big screen in an upcoming film called The Age of Adaline. As much as we love seeing her on the red carpet in gowns by Chanel, Valentino and Gucci, suffice it to say that we’re looking forward to seeing this actress in character once again. Within the pages of Vogue's August edition, Mario Testino takes Lively back to her southern roots in an incredible spread, shot in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. It might sound more rustic than what we’re used to, but throw Blake, along with a little bit of Lanvin and Burberry, onto the scene, and watch it come alive. Read the full story here.Read More ↓
