Glossy, girly, gorgeous and never far from the top of our lust list Gossip Girl wouldn't be our favourite teen drama without Blake Lively as Serena van der Woodesen. Just like Serena, Blake has undergone a huge style transformation over the last decade to become a serious style icon. Gone is the ripped denim and tight cropped tee from that first red carpet outing in 2005. Now, it's all about showing off those killer pins in insanely chic designer dresses straight from the catwalk. We're not the only ones who noticed Blake's stellar style early on. Karl Lagerfeld loves her so much that she was snapped up as the face of Chanel after appearing on the cover of fashion bible, Vogue. Cue even more dreamy frocks! She's also good friends with A-list shoe designer, Christian Louboutin who often supplies her with ah-mazing shoes to go with all those brave fashion choices. Well, how else would you pull off red frou-frou Marchesa with such elegance? The only thing more exciting than her incredible wardrobe is her love life. Blake's dated Gossip Girl co-star Penn Badgley and actor Leonardo Dicaprio. She's now all loved-up with actor, Ryan Reynolds. Jealous, us?
