In her coverstory interview conducted by Florence Welch, Blake talks about her new job with Chanel, her decision not to tweet, her style choices and more. Click below to see and hear from the lovely Miss Lively.
On Twitter: “People ask me why I don’t tweet. Honestly, I’m so sick of myself.”
On becoming the new face of Chanel’s Mademoiselle handbag: “It’s such an honor. When I found out I got [the job], you 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 you’ll perform, and we’ll do it in Paris.” Like you and I were in charge of Chanel!”
On being her own stylist: “I think I became my own stylist by not knowing any better. And once I was told it was time to get one, I thought: This is one of my favorite hobbies! And I’m going to pay someone to steal my hobby from me? That’s a terrible idea!”
On getting ready for an event: “I like it to be easy. I don’t feel like I have to do so much with hair and makeup, because I’m the mannequin for these beautiful clothes, so I never want to do anything too distracting. 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 & Sympathy, because they never have enough food at these things.”
On breakups: “Every relationship you have, you’re learning and growing and taking something from that. So for me, it’s never been too dramatic of a thing when something ends.”
I have to admit, I was fooled by those fake nudie pics but I am glad to know that Blake isn’t one of those dumb people moronic enough to share nekkid photos of themselves. She strikes me as such an intelligent and private person, I can’t imagine that she would be dumb enough to share nekkid photos.
