The Lively set

Robert Stacy McCain, having found her name in a fiskable article, wants to know: “Who is Blake Lively?”

Being the generous soul I am, I will tell him, and you, that Blake Lively is an actress (Gossip Girl, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) and occasional celebrity cook. She’s twenty-six. And he, and you, should know this up front:

Boobs Legsly: A nickname for Blake Lively, originating from the period of time when Blake would go out of the house wearing cleavtacular outfits that also showed a lot of leg, in opposition to the traditional advice to show either boobs or legs but not both. As of this writing, she seems to have reined in this habit, but she also proudly does not use a stylist, so anything could happen.

For instance, this happened at a Lady Gaga-related event in the spring of ’11:

Blake Lively at Gaga's Workshop in New York

Which takes care of the first name. Now the second:

Blake Lively at 12/12/12 Benefit

Last I looked, Lively was filming Adaline in Vancouver: she and Michiel Huisman play a Romantic Item.

    she dressed in opposition to “the traditional advice to show either boobs or legs but not both.”

    Yet another example of a Celebrity Problem that I don’t seem to have.

    (I will, on occasion, show off legs to a certain extent. But not the other part, not more than what would be considered acceptable in a fairly-conservative classroom)

    What, no pictures of her flouting the “but not both”?

    This way I get to show off two pictures and pretend to have some regard for propriety.

    However, you might try this one on for size.

    Only 26? Even in these pictures she looks a decade older.

    Birth date I have for her is 25 August 1987, which would make her 26. She is showing, um, some signs of wear.

    From Not Dead Yet Style, Miss Legsly in a skirt “8 inches too short” for the fiftyish proprietor.

    …and, once again, excellent example why flats are bad, bad, bad (for anybody but Lynn).
    Blake’s legs are decidedly unappealing in that picture, despite the “8”too short skirt” – no calves, but knees looks like she borrowed them from an elephant.
    In your example, in the post above (where she is in orange leather number) – they are spectacular: exactly because they are shod for a spectacle.
