Despite being famous for her press tour outfit changes, Blake Lively recently revealed she still doesn't have a stylist.
"I have control issues and a big ego - that’s probably the honest answer," the actress told WWD when quizzed as to why she still dresses herself, rather than hiring a professional.
“I just like it. I love design and I love fashion and it’s a way to be creative," she continued. In my job I get to be creative, but it’s over a period of time and so many other people are involved, whereas this is a beginning, middle and end, and I get to be creative and there’s an end date in the near future. It’s the same reason why I like doing my friends’ hair and makeup or cooking—you get to be creative and finish it. Whereas with my job you do it and then two years later it’s finished. It probably goes back to the control issues; it’s like, ‘Okay, I did it, I completed it, it’s done!’”
Lively also revealed she's already picked her dress for the biggest fashion event of the year, the Met Gala.
"I just sent Lorraine Schwartz and Christian Louboutin my dress, and said, ‘Okay let’s do something special.' They’re making something custom for it. So it’s kind of nice, because I have a bunch of artists around me who I have direct relationships with. It’s sort of a group effort with that. I rely on people who do that for a living rather than outsourcing it to someone else.”
