Blake Lively spent 2014 schooling us all in flawless maternity wear and giving Martha Stewart a run for her money when it comes to craftiness (who can forget that Bey-hive birthday cake she made for Beyonce), so it should come as no surprise to anyone anywhere that the actress’s 2015 is already off to a killer start: Lively, 27, was just named to the top of Forbes’ annual “30 Under 30” entertainment list.
Helping Lively nab the top honors this year was her entrepreneurial work on Preserve, the lifestyle brand she launched this past summer that sells clothes, food, and home goods. Her mantra for success? “I’ll never feel like I arrived,” she told Forbes. “The people I look up to the most are the people that are continuing to up their game.”
Also making this year’s entertainment list was Whiplash writer-director Damien Chazelle (29), Ansel Elgort (20), Broad City’s Ilana Glazer (27), Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany (29), Emma Watson (24), Miles Teller (27), and Emma Stone (26). You can see the full entertainment list here, but what you won’t see are any repeats from years past (e.g., no Lena Dunham or Jennifer Lawrence):Forbes implemented a new rule this year that the lists in each category could feature no previous “30 Under 30” honorees.
Moving over to music, Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard (27) and Brian Kelley (29) were highlighted for their trailblazing mix of country, electronic, pop, and hip-hop music; along with Iggy Azalea (24), Hozier (24), A$AP Rocky (26), Ed Sheeran (23), Sam Smith (22), Meghan Trainor (21), and Charli XCX (22).
