If “Looking Phenomenal on the Red Carpet” was an Oscar category, Blake Lively would’ve been awarded the coveted statue dozens and dozens of times over. The golden California girl, who is most famously known for her portrayal of Serena Van Der Woodsen on Gossip Girl, was not only blessed with an amazing figure, memorable face, and luscious blonde locks, but also an innate style acumen that has made her one of Tinseltown’s best-dressed celebrities.
Although she prefers a classic hourglass silhouette for her most-snapped moments, the actress isn’t shy about embracing daring trends, colorful patterns, and figure-revealing outfits. In celebration of Lively’s 30th birthday, tomorrow, Savoir Flair is looking back at 30 of her most jaw-dropping moments on the red carpet in the gallery below.
