Posted in Blake Lively on December 3, 2010 by fadedblog

Blake Lively has a real passion for shopping.

The Gossip Girl actress indulged in an afternoon of retail today (December 3) in Paris, France while shopping around with a pal.

One thing not on her shopping list? Shoes.

The blonde beauty was recently spied buying nearly forty pairs of Christian Louboutin shoes during a VIP sample sale.

It all went down last week in New York City when Blake was invited to the super exclusive, by invitation only same. It’s estimated that she spent about $9000, given the fact that flats go for about $150 at least, while heels have a starting price of about $225.

JESSICA ALBA AND BLAKE LIVELY: FOOTWEAR NEWS FASHIONISTAS

Posted in Blake Lively, Jessica Alba on November 30, 2010 by fadedblog

Blake Lively and Jessica Alba united forces in New York City today (November 30) in the name of fashion.

Looking stylish as always, the big screen beauties attended the Footwear News 24th Annual Achievement Awards at The Museum of Modern Art.

While Jessica was on hand to honor designer Blake Mycoskie, Gossip Girl actress Blake awarded shoe designer to the stars Christian Louboutin with a trophy.

Meanwhile, Jessica says her daughter Honor loves to dress up like her actress mother and try out her clothes and jewellery.

“I just wear whatever’s easy and matches somewhat. My daughter is normally in the wardrobe with me, pulling all my shoes out, trying on the jewellery,” says the 29-year-old actress.

Although motherhood has changed her priorities in life, Jessica claims that it hasn’t dampened her love for partying.

“Oddly, I think I’m a little more wild and free since I had Honor because once she’s in bed all my mom friends come over and we have dance parties at my house. It’s really dorky and I probably wouldn’t have done that before. But no, I don’t go out. I hang out with my friends and I’m pretty chilled.”

However, the Hollywood starlet prefers quiet night these days and doesn’t care much about her body.

“I eat fried foods, I stay up late, too late, lots of times. Like last night. I eat late-night desserts all the time and I should work out. But after I put my daughter to bed, I’d rather have a glass of wine than go to the gym,” she adds.

Beyonce looked gorgeous in a slim-fitting white shift as she modelled bracelets and earrings from the collection on the red carpet.

Despite Us Weekly‘s recent claims to the contrary, the 29-year-old put any lingering pregnancy rumours to rest as she showed off her slim figure and flat stomach.

Newly single Blake, meanwhile, was sizzling in blush-coloured Versace dress and Christian Louboutin heels.
The Gossip Girl completed the sleek look with bangles from the collection.

As for Kim? Well, let’s just say that it appears her promotional duties have taken precendence over her daily workouts.

Meanwhile, Beyonce says she is tired of the baby rumours.

“At this point, they say that I’ve been pregnant like eight times, so I am kind of used to it,” she said in an interview with The Associated Press on Monday. “I just hope that one day when I decide to be pregnant that people are happy for me. … One day hopefully I will be. It’s part of being a celebrity, I guess.”

Posted in Blake Lively on September 27, 2010 by fadedblog

Blake Lively dropped by the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City today (September 27) to tape tonight’s installment of the Late Show with David Letterman.

The Gossip Girl actress showed off her long gams in a sparkly mini dress by Elie Saab as she posed for photos — but if Alec Baldwin had it his way, she’d be naked!

Speaking with E! at the recent gala celebrating 30 years of PETA, the 30 Rock star said that it’s young girls like Blake who are today’s role models with “all the influence.”

“I think those people had a real opportunity to fill a certain role in society and they didn’t necessarily step up,” said Alec, “but those that are I think it’s a great thing if they get involved with anti-fur or anti-animal testing.”

Asked who would he want to bare all for animal rights organisation, Alec said: “Wow, that’s a very personal question. (Laughs). I don’t think I should name – Blake Lively. It’s wrong of me to say anyone – Blake Lively.”

The 52-year-old actor added: “I think she’s a really really gorgeous woman, very stylish.”

Chris Cooper, Rebecca Hall, John Hamm, Jeremy Rennerk, Blake Lively and director Ben Affleck were all on hand as they graced the red carpet ahead of the debut of their Charlestown-based crime thriller.

While working the press line, Ben told reporters: “This moment right now, being here at Fenway Park, getting to the finish line and bringing this movie to Fenway where I used to sit under the Ford sign with my dad in the bleachers, has to be the highlight of my career.”

Snacking on free popcorn, peanuts and beer, some nearly 2000 locals filled the grandstand seats to watch the movie’s premiere on a giant screen set up along the base path.

“I want you to know that I love Boston,” Ben told moviegoers. “This movie is from somebody who cares about this place, grew up here and that means a lot.”

Also in attendance? Ben’s BFF Matt Damon — though he didn’t speak to the press.
