Gimme More! DON's Deal
Wednesday, June 01, 2011
Look, I love Blake Lively, but with every interview, she continues to say things that make her even less relatable and more an object of envy. Maybe she simply can't be relatable because she just isn't at all like the girl next door? More examples of this come from her interview with her friend, singer Florence Welch in Glamour:
Point 1: These are her silly little daydreams, which actually happen.
"It’s such an honor [to be the face of Chanel's new handbag]. When I found out I got it, [Florence] and I went to dinner and concocted this plan, like two little girls at a tea party, saying, “Oh, it would be the best if we had a party. And [Florence] will perform, and we’ll do it in Paris.” Like [Florence] and I were in charge of Chanel!"
Point 2: She doesn't have a stylist because she doesn't need one. She's just that good.
"...And then Gossip Girl completely blew open the door to fashion for me. I’d go to fashion shows and call my publicist and say, “Can I wear that?” I think I became my own stylist by not knowing any better."
“I like it to be easy...Most of the time, I put my hair in a ballerina bun, and I take it down and it’s wavy, and then I leave. I feel shy when people are fussing on me. And my diet of choice before events is a chicken potpie from Tea and Sympathy, because they never have enough food at these things."
"This is absolutely crazy, but I wanted a sauce from New Orleans, and they wouldn’t send it because the FDA didn’t approve it. I called the restaurant and I said, “OK, can you buy a teddy bear and cut it open and put it in and send it?” They’re like, “No, we are not the drug cartel; we’re not sending you your sweet potato sauce in a teddy bear.”
