As far as timing goes, this Allure October cover of Blake Lively has it nailed. It comes right on the heels of her wedding to Ryan Reynolds. The lady is looking absolutely glorious too, and the cover shoot is all soft and glowing and everything a new bride would want to look like. The interview was done a month and a half ago but her nesting instincts really came out when she was questioned. “I’m a very shy person. I can be outgoing, but I’m also very private, ” Lively says, adding, ” I’ve always wanted a big family.” Kids? Hells yes, she replied, saying, “Oh, I’d love 30 if I could.” The dress she’s wearing in the shot is by Marchesa, FYI. Also fortuitous, because guess who designed her wedding gown — Marchesa! Then there’s the part we’re jealous about. She’s talking about her food habits which totally belie her slender frame. Does she exercise? Diet? Not really. She explains, “I wish I could lie and say that I do something, but …I obviously have plenty of imperfections on my body, but I’d rather have a little bit of cellulite and go do a food trip and try every ice cream place in the South.” South … like South Carolina? We’re making a not-so subtle reference to Charleston, which is where she got married. Nicely done, Allure. Quite a coup!
