Woman of the week: Blake Lively

Exactly how Blake Lively continues to be the talk of the town…

With her blonde hair, blue eyes and golden skin, Blake Lively is every inch the American Dream. Born in Los Angeles, her Cali-girl looks combined with her dramatic talent has landed her numerous Hollywood roles, the cover of esteemed publications such as Vogue and Elle, and allowed her to become the face of luxury brands such as Gucci and L’Oreal. No red carpet is complete without her or her equally attractive and successful husband Ryan Reynolds, who is surely in the envied position of gentlemen everywhere.

Lively is most well known for portraying the charming NYC it-girl Serena van der Woodsen in the television series Gossip Girl, who she played from 2007 up until 2012, but since then has made numerous critically acclaimed appearances on the big screen that display the fantastic versatility of her performance abilities. Moving away from the teen drama genre, Blake has played the leading lady in 2010 crime drama film The Town, an ageless immortal in The Age of Adeline, released in 2015, and a captivating love interest in superhero movie Green Lantern.

Most recently, this year Lively has further proven her acting credentials in the Woody Allen directed Café Society and in the thrilling survival flick The Shallows, where Lively’s character fights to survive a great white shark attack (all whilst bearing a stunning bikini body). Having been in the industry since just the age of 10, Blake Lively shows no sign of slowing her stardom or being any less desirable.
