One of the most stunning women in the world, Blake Lively, channels her beauty for the new Gucci Première Eau de Toilette ad, which was released on Sept. 25. Learn more about the fragrance below! View the image here.
Blake Lively, the gorgeous face of Gucci Première Eau de Toilette, explains the new scent: “This new fragrance announces that you have strength and are happy in your own skin. I really love that. It’s for the woman that I’ve always aspired to be. Every day.”
Blake looks better than ever! She seriously has that retro beauty look down pat. What we wouldn’t give to have those waves! The new fragrance smells like a dream with top notes of Orange Blossom and Citrus Oils, middle notes of White Flowers, Freesia, Jasmine, and Bulgarian Rose and bottom notes of Leather, Patchouli, and Musk.
Gucci’s Creative Director Frida Giannini explains the scent more: “In the new Première Eau de Toilette, there is a charming balance of jasmine sambac and Bulgarian rose, two classically elegant feminine flowers that are contrasted with delicate freesia. The result is a vibrant, modern feminine scent that you can enjoy wearing every day.”
The studio has moved The Age of Adaline release date from January 23 to April 24, 2015. The Age of Adaline brings back to the screen Harrison Ford. Blake Lively is joined by Michiel Huisman and Amanda Crew. Anthony Ingruber is set to play a young Harisson Ford William. Peter J Gray and Kathy Baker are also set to join the cast of the movie. Sidney Kimmel, Garu Lucchesi, Alix Madigan and Tom Rosenberg are the directors while J Mills Goodloe and Salvador Paskowitz are writing the screen play. Filming ended in June 2014.
Blake Lively has spent nearly a decade in an industry she initially had no interest in pursuing, but from the moment she appeared on TV screens in Gossip Girl, there’s been no denying her allure—just ask Leonardo DiCaprio, who was so under her spell, he engaged in several PDAs during their brief dalliance (we still want to know how she pulled that off). Today she’s married to Canada’s own Ryan Reynolds, has worked with Oscar winning directors such as Oliver Stone and Ben Affleck and this past summer launched Preserve, her own lifestyle website.
Amid the frenzy of the Cannes Film Festival and her duties as an official spokesperson for L’Oreal Paris back in May, Lively sat down with FASHION’s beauty director Lesa Hannah to discuss Hollywood, cakes and that time she visited babies in Sudbury with Reynolds.
On avoiding Hollywood at first:
“It was never that I didn’t want to be an actor because I thought it was a bad industry. It was just that my whole family did it and I wanted to do something different. I was the youngest of five kids and I wanted to create my own path and my own sort of legacy.”
On her announced visit to the pediatric unit of a Sudbury hospital last year:
“I have six nieces and nephews, so for me, children are really what gets my heart going. I’ve spent time at St. Jude’s in the States and so any chance I get to go to a children’s hospital, I do. I try to do that in a way that’s it’s on a more personal level, but that one became sort of a public thing that we didn’t intend, but it’s great to do that.”
On how her mom’s cakes made her see the power of baking:
“She just created a whole life, a personality out of this thing. It was very much art and a celebration, and it made every holiday so special. I would be so proud when she would bring them into my class, and all of the kids in school would just freak out. She would let other kids help decorate too. And I suffer from the opposite, I’m very precious about it, it has to be perfect.”
On Age of Adaline, her first movie post-Gossip Girl.
“I really wanted some time to myself and to focus on other things that I loved, so that when I did it again I would be really re-invigorated. And it took a movie that I really couldn’t say ‘no’ to, you know, because there’s plenty that I would have done, but it was really important to have that time. So when I read that one, I said, ‘I can’t not be in this movie, I have to do this movie.’”

The movie release schedule for 2015 has slowly been coming together and Lionsgate today announced that the Blake Lively Harrison Ford romantic drama The Age of Adaline will open on January 23, 2015.
In The Age of Adaline, Adaline (Blake Lively) ceases to age following an accident one icy night, but keeps her condition a closely guarded secret while embarking on a number of incredible adventures throughout the 20th Century. After years of a solitary life, she finds the love and courage that enable her to fully begin living. Ellen Burstyn, Amanda Crew and Kathy Baker co-star in the Lee Toland Krieger directed film.
Blake Lively was born in Los Angeles on 25 August 1987 to actor father Earnie and his wife Elaine. When she was just 11, the blonde-haired beauty began her acting career appearing in the film Sandman, which was directed by her father.
In 2005 the stunning 5’10” actress got more recognition when she got cast as the role of Bridget in The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants, which earned her a Teen Choice Award.
It wasn’t until 2007, however, when the fashion queen was cast as the wealthy and gorgeous Serena Van Der Woodsen in the Gossip Girl series – that she became an icon for teen girls all over the world.
Blake Lively covers the September 2014 (20th Anniversary) issue of Marie Claire Magazine.
She talks about food, a lot. She talks about how her husband is her best friend. Her “greatest joy comes from Canada”. She wants to give back to the world. She doesn’t drink. She’s never done drugs. You can watch the behind the scenes video here and read the full interview here.
On her relationship with Ryan Reynolds: “We’ve never gone a week without seeing each other. There’s no major decision that I make without him. The best part is when we turn off our phones and just talk and hang out. He’s my best, best friend. What do you do with your best friend? You do nothing.”
On her past claims of wanting 30 kids of her own: “I gotta get started. If I could spit out a litter of kids, I would.”
On her new venture, Preserve, an immerse lifestyle e-commerce website: “I went straight from high school to Gossip Girl, and both were very structured, scheduled environments, so I never had freedom to explore and carve my own path. When I finished my show, I wanted to take a break from acting and try what I would have tried if I hadn’t acted, and that was this.”
On her involvement in the PBS documentary miniseries A Path Appears: “I don’t pretend to speak for anyone, but my feeling is that the general consensus in the United States is that [sex trafficking] is elective here–that when women are prostituting themselves, it’s their choice. But what you realize when you start talking to these young women is that they’re in emotional chains.”
On Reynolds’ favorite meal: “Honestly, all he wants to eat is hot-fudge sundaes.”
Red lipstick can leave any woman even more powerful. And to prove this idea L’Oréal Paris met none other than Blake Lively, Eva Longoria, Jane Fonda, Julianne Moore, Freida Pinto, Laetitia Casta, Sonam Kapoor, Ines De La Fressange, Zoe Saldana and other prominent actresses in a amazing essay recorded by Julien Lutt.
The photos are part of the new line of lipsticks Pure Red, Color by Richie, the French brand campaign. With completely different beauties, all posed with rouge lips and made it clear that a remarkable mouth can indeed highlight the feminine force!
The collection, which will feature different shades of red, will be launched in September in the United States and major European countries.
