While former Gossip Girl star Blake Lively isn’t slated for another film appearance until — sigh — 2015, she’s been keeping us entertained with her lifestyle website Preserve (which even has Martha Stewart talking), and flawless fashion choices. Whether she’s promoting a project or not, these red carpet looks are enough to keep us constantly tuning in. Lively doesn’t have a stylist. Every ensemble you see the blonde bombshell rocking is handpicked by her. Cool, right? And furthermore, homegirl lands herself on a Best Dressed list almost every single time. That’s quite a talent, especially when you think about the number of stars who fall victim to a fashion faux pas at the hand of a stylist’s uninspired choice.
No one is safe from bad fashion. A-listers like Shailene Woodley, Lupita Nyong’o and Julianne Moore are all guilty of violating style laws, but they’re not the ones to blame. Their stylists — including some of the industry’s biggest names like Rachel Zoe and Elizabeth Stewart — are the real culprits. Perhaps they should take a few lessons from Lively and figure out how they can make sure their clients hit home runs every time? It’s something Serena van der Woodsen has down to a science.
Don’t believe us? Take a look at seven times Lively ruled the red carpet sans stylist while her peers looked tragic even with the best help money can buy. It goes to show that sometimes the person who knows you the best is…well, you.
