Vogue Feb. Cover Girl is Gossip Girl Blake Lively

Check out Blake Lively on the cover of Vogue in a Marc Jacobs dress and bracelet. This outfit would have been a better choice than the Nina Ricci gown she had on at the Golden Globes.

Lively's mother, a former model, inspired the ingenue's interest in clothes. Of the show, she says;

"The fashion is unbelievable. You can watch our show on mute and be entertained,"

Lively often jokingly refers to her California fashion pedigree as "sweatpants and UGGs," but actually, she has always had an interest in clothes, inspired by her mother, a former model from Georgia, who sews and used to take Lively as a child to boutiques and vintage stores and tailor adult clothes to fit her.
"She just did that because she was so creative and because she didn't want me to be dressed in big T-shirts cinched with a plastic clip like all the rest of the kids."

Ironically, it was fashion that gave Lively a taste of how cruel girls can be. When she entered a private school in Los Angeles in second grade, for the first and only time in her life she did not fit in. "It was the only school where people were just downright mean to me," she recalls. "They would make fun of my clothes because I dressed differently than the other kids." Somehow we don't think they're laughing anymore.

The end result of the photo shoot....Simply Gorgeous!!
