Staying grounded priority for lively Gossip Girl star

Another little intreview with oyr girl Blake, found it at NWAnews.com.

NEW YORK — Wide-eyed teens excitedly watch as Gossip Girl star Blake Lively films a scene with co-star Penn Badgley.

Take after take in New York’s Stuyvesant Park — a perfect setting with its stately gates and statues — the youthful onlookers linger on this cold day, providing some evidence that the low-rated CW series holds interest for its target demographic: BlackBerry-holding, DVR-using Gen-Yers.

Lively, who got her big break as a soccer-loving teen in 2005 ’s The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, plays Serena van der Woodsen on the glossy soap, based on the popular youngadult novels about rich Manhattan private-school kids whose scandals and trysts are dishy fodder for an anonymous blogger.

Serena captures the most attention: the Queen Bee hooked up with her best friend’s man — OMG ! — and now has a budding romance with brainy black-sheep-on-campus Dan Humphrey (Badgley ).

Loves her Urban Look

One more article about her fashion style. Credit: CTV.ca

Shooting “Gossip Girl” entirely in New York City has motivated the show’s star, Blake Lively, to step up her fashion game.

“New Yorkers have a sleek, subtle look,” says Lively in a fashion profile with the New York Times. “In L.A., people wear comfy, drawstring yoga clothes in bright colors.”

Lively portrays Serena van der Woodsen, the most beautiful girl in the Upper East Side and gem of the show’s fictional social scene. The upside to playing a character at the center of the world’s fashion capital has also meant that Lively enjoys wearing a wide variety of high-end fashion for the show — even if it means suffering for her art.

“It was March when I did the pilot, and there was snow on the ground,” says Lively.

“I was wearing two pairs of leggings, four sweaters and a big down coat. People here look sharp. You feel like an idiot in Uggs.”

Lively, who moved to Manhattan to shoot “Gossip Girl,” confesses that working on the show has influenced her current look.

“[Serena] does have a strong sense of style, and I like to think mine is a little bit like hers,” says Lively.

The 20-year-old also admits that she also orders clothing directly from the designers she wears on the show.

“Gossip Girl” airs Tuesdays on CTV. Check your local listings for details.

Want a “Ladylike” Sense of Style

I found this online article over at Fametastic, it’s about Blake’s great style.

Gossip Girl star Blake Lively is loving living in New York to film the new hit show – because the extreme weather changes help her to justify lots of new clothes.

She told Lucky magazine recently: “I grew up in California, so winter is this entirely new, exciting thing for me – I’ve already justified buying seven coats!”

She added that working on the fashionable show has also turned her head – but she’s always had a certain older-than-her-years style in mind: “Growing up, I was constantly borrowing clothes from my older sisters, or I’d pick out something from Urban Outfitters and my mom would tailor it to my size — I don’t think I ever dressed like a kid.”

“Now that I’m on Gossip Girl, the wardrobe is so amazing and inspiring, it’s opened a whole new style gateway for me.”

“I’m having so much fun, but I’m trying to keep my head together too, stylewise. There are so many young women out there dressing like young girls; I want to be more ladylike and classic.”

“My style has been totally influenced by Audrey Hepburn and Kate Moss equally – they’re such fashion icons. But Sienna Miller’s young urban style is also totally what I’m going for.”
