Blake Lively - Fashion Icon Blake Lively Swears Off Stylists

Actress Blake Lively has sworn off the idea of hiring a stylist because she insists dressing herself is one of her favourite hobbies.
The Gossip Girl star, who recently became the face of top fashion design house Chanel, has gained a reputation for being one of the best dressed stars in Hollywood - and she comes up with the looks all on her own.
She tells Glamour magazine, "Gossip Girl completely blew open the door to fashion for me. I'd go to fashion shows and call my publicist and say, 'Can I wear that?' I think I became my own stylist by not knowing any better.
"And once I was told it was time to get one (stylist), I thought, 'This is one of my favorite hobbies! And I'm going to pay someone to steal my hobby from me? That's a terrible idea!'"
Lively admits style comes easily to her - and she loves to look natural on the red carpet.
She explains, "I don't feel like I have to do so much with hair and make-up, because I'm the mannequin for these beautiful clothes, so I never want to do anything too distracting.
"Most of the time, I put my hair in a ballerina bun, and I take it down and it's wavy, and then I leave. I feel shy when people are fussing on me."
