So Blake Lively is covering Vogue‘s first-ever Best Dressed supplement, draped in a gorgeous Reed Krakoff dress. We love the brand extension, but do we love the choice of cover model?
Here’s the thing. We actually do like Blake Lively. We think it’s silly that she claims to not use a stylist, but that doesn’t mean we don’t think she’s pretty and lovely. But Lively’s covered Vogue twice recently, and she’s the last star we feel should symbolize Vogue‘s best dressed list.
It seems that Ms. Wintour–whom we respect and admire, despite the awful photoshopping that goes on in her magazine–has a bit of an obsession with Lively. One Vogue source says Anna tries to use her in anything and everything she can. However, another says that “Anna doesn’t ever come off as obsessed about anything.”
Regardless, there is good to be culled from Anna’s girl crush: curves. Unlike the Eastern European models Vogue has favored in the past, Lively is real person, with a semi-normal body.
