In her new, Oliver Stone, movie Savages. For the flick, Blake sheds her couture Gossip Girl wardrobe for bikinis and maxi dresses.
This is a new look for her and Celebuzz wanted to know how she felt about the hippie, free love look!
“I loved the clothes. That’s always one of my favorite parts of designing a character.”
BUT Blake did run into a challenge:
“When I play a character so different than myself I love to hide behind the clothes,” continued Lively. “It’s actually a really good secret– if you don’t look like her, and you don’t talk like her then you can disappear.”
But off-screen, Blake is in a serious relationship with Ryan Reynolds!
“When you look like you, you talk like you, you’re from southern California and you wear clothes you went shopping for at Top Shop, then it gets to be a little messy,” recalled Blake. “Like, ‘I don’t want people to think this is me!’ It was a really weird personal challenge shooting this.”
Blake’s costar Salma Hayek interjected…
“Can I say something? [Blake] also designed the tattoo which was part of the wardrobe in a way. She found the artist and worked with the artist butterfly by butterfly, color by color. Just hours, Blake spent making it perfect!”
“It’s by one of my favorite artists Sage Fawn,” Lively said speaking about the tattoo. She elaborated:
“Sage Fawn creates these beautiful, pure, colorful nature tattoos…I thought it was such a perfect example of [“O”]– this pure, free, hopeful girl that has been really broken and torn by her life and society. I think if you’re going to get a tattoo it should be significant. I thought that would be more significant for her.”
Should she keep the hippie look are go back to her old ways?
