12 Things You Didn't Know About Blake Lively

If you know who Blake Lively is, chances are you’re a fan of the series Gossip Girl, where Lively was one of the main characters. You probably also know that Blake dated her co-star Penn Badgley for quite some time before moving on and marrying actor Ryan Reynolds. Of course, you don’t have to know much about Lively to take one look at her and “learn” that she’s pretty stunning.

While many of Blake’s peers are putting lots of their personal details on social media these days, Lively keeps a rather low profile. Those who are interested in her work know that she’s around, but she’s not constantly forcing the public to notice her. In fact, she and Reynolds are pretty private about their marriage and their young daughter James. In fact, when Blake was pregnant, the couple was reluctant to reveal the sex of the baby, and months after James was born, the public still didn’t know her name!

Perhaps being coy is in Blake’s nature. Or, maybe she’s found that she becomes a little more popular whenever the media has to dig a little deeper to find a story about her. Either way, her strategy seems to be working. Here are 12 things you probably didn’t know about Blake Lively.

Lively has been interested in fashion for quite some time, and now she’s actually a designer. She expressed to Mare Claire that she even has outfits that are specific to different parts of the world. For instance, she owns an ostrich feather skirt that she’d readily wear in Paris, but wouldn’t think about donning it in New York. Lively has been teaming up with Sam & Lavi to create some pretty fashionable pieces, like jumpsuits and skirts. She also worked on her first dress as part of a capsule collection for Amour Vert x As opposed to some clothing pieces that people buy simply because a celebrity’s name is attached to it, the pieces Lively collaborated on are visually appealing and made with precision. Is there anything this woman can’t do?
