After a year of off-the-radar bliss, Blake Lively is gearing up for a return to the spotlight—and flashing just enough of that blowy glamour and authentic, slightly goofy warmth to let us know in no uncertain terms: Yep, she’s still Hollywood’s golden-est girl. First on her itinerary? A potentially world-changing partnership with Gucci.
As the face of Gucci Premiére fragrance, she’s been involved in the brand’s massively successful Chime for Change charity initiative, which kicked off with a megaconcert in London last year (“It was very exciting to hear the audience cheer just as much for a woman who had broken out of a horrible life cycle in India as for Madonna”) and has since raised close to $5 million, funding more than 260 projects that benefit women in 81 countries. Starting in April, purchasers of Gucci perfumes (via Macy’s or Macys.com) will be able to donate a $5 portion of the price to a charity of their choice via the Chime for Change website. “Sure, you can buy the fragrance and then not go online, but then you’re the jerk,” Lively says. “This makes the consumer an active participant by giving them responsibility.”
Blake Lively on her yearlong break from acting: “Having a personal life has been really nice. I’d been on Gossip Girl 10 months a year for six years, shooting 15-hour days, so I hadn’t had time to just be since I graduated from high school. It’s been nice to kind of settle into my own skin and work on things I really love.”
How her own personal style is starting to evolve: “The older I get, I guess I wear less sparkles. And I know that someday my knees are going to look like elephant knees. But for now, my hemlines are still pretty high.”

Blake Lively is moving into the movie-star big leagues. The Gossip Girl actress is currently filming scenes for The Age of Adaline which also stars Ellen Burstyn and Harrison Ford.
Lively plays Adaline, a woman who stops aging following an accident. The plot “follows the miraculous life of the 29-year-old title character, who stops aging after recovering from a near-fatal accident. Over the 20th century she embarks on an epic but isolated worldwide journey, keeping her secret, until she meets a man who forever alters her life.”
The role is the actress’s first since the 2012 film Savages. Academy Award-winning Burstyn, 81, will appear as Adaline’s mother. Michiel Huisman — best known for his role on Game of Thrones — also stars in the film, playing Blake Lively’s love interest in the upcoming film. Kathy Baker and Amanda Crew round out the cast.
Lively, 26, and Burstyn were spotted in the Gastown District of Vancouver, Canada late last week having lunch together as they prepared to shoot scenes for the movie scheduled to be released in 2015.
Seems like the Lively-Reynolds household is busy, busy, busy. Blake‘s husband Ryan Reynolds is slated to take on the role of a lawyer in the upcoming film The Woman in Gold with another Academy Award-winner, Helen Mirren.

Blake Lively and Ellen Burstyn have started filming the movie Age of Adaline in Vancouver, BC.
Age Of Adaline follows “the miraculous life of the 29-year-old title character (Lively), who stops aging after recovering from a near-fatal accident. Over the 20th century she embarks on an epic but isolated worldwide journey, keeping her secret, until she meets a man who forever alters her life.”
The movie will be filming at Hotel Vancouver through Thursday. Filming in Vancouver is expected to continue through May 2. Thanks to @gettinmyhateon for the info! If you spot Age of Adaline filming in Vancouver, let us know.
Blake has been spending a lot of her time filming the latest season of Gossip Girl in New York City but took some time out to head to Los Angeles where she met up with her beau for a bite to eat.
According to People the couple dined at Umami Burger in Los Feliz, California and an onlooker said: “Blake looked very happy and kept smiling.”
And she wasn’t the only one enjoying the low-key date, Leo seemed smitten with the blonde beauty: “He gently grabbed her hand at one point and he seemed very into Blake.”
However Sources say the couple have broken up and made up twice in one week.
“Blake’s head is spinning,” says a source close to the pair.
“Leo is blows hot and cold with her. He likes his space and it’s becoming a regular thing for them to cool things off or even call it quits. One week they broke up twice only to get back together even more wrapped up in each other than before.”
Recent reports claimed Blake was keen to make Leo her husband!
“She wants to land Leo as a husband,” a source said.
“Everything Blake tells me says Leo is serious. They are making plans together and acting like a serious couple.”
Blake is said to be so smitten with Leo that she’s decided to rent a house “a couple of blocks away” from his Hollywood Hills home.
“She needed a place in L.A. and decided to live as close to Leo as she could,” said the source.
“I don’t think she could have gotten a place any closer. She’s jumping in feet first.
“Blake is really into Leo, and is making it obvious.”
Leonardo DiCaprio’s beloved mum Irmelin wasn’t keen on girlfriend Blake Lively so Leo jetted to Italy with his mother, telling her he needs space.
The 36-year-old actor flew to Capri with Irmelin last week and our source says he’s been ignoring Blake’s emails and texts since.
‘She hasn’t heard a thing from him,’ a friend tells us.
‘All she’s seen are pictures of him all over various women at a wedding reception.
‘It’s awful for poor Blake because one minute Leo’s taking her to Verona in Italy and asking her to move in with him and now suddenly he’s gone all cold on her.
‘She feels totally used and humiliated.
‘Blake thinks she was just a rebound for Leo after his relationship with Bar Refaeli ended.
‘She’s been crying her eyes out since and feels so ridiculous.’
Since Blake Lively is already a pretty incredible dresser to begin with, we admit that sometimes we treat her enviable looks with casual yet sustained enthusiasm. Still, every now and then, she manages to blow us away with a particularly amazing outfit like the ethereal Marchesa gown that she wore to a BAFTA dinner. The asymmetrical cut and gauzy appearance of the fabric lent the dress its otherworldly appeal, but it was the seemingly endless arrangement of sparkly crystals along the hem and neckline that made it truly a work of art.
