Blake Lively: I love kids' clothes

Blake Lively still likes to play dress up and would wear more childish clothes if her family didn't laugh at her.

The 27-year-old became a mom for the first time in December, when she and husband Ryan Reynolds welcomed a daughter into the world.

Despite being one of the world's most stylish stars, Blake would still dress like a kid if she could.

"They make these Little Goodall coats for women too! You could really go for it and have a matching mother-child look. I would own these coats myself if I wouldn't be laughed out of my home for dressing like a four-year-old. I still like to play dress-up," she confessed to People magazine.

As well as her new mommy duties, Blake is busy with her lifestyle website Preserve. The site sells an array of goods; from clothes to homewear. It also stocks food, with Blake particularly interested in turning edible goods into beauty products.

"We did a 'farm to face' series. We thought, 'What are you throwing away that you can breathe new life into?' We researched our banana, oat bran and honey mask with experts. [Ingredients: half a banana, ¼ cup oat bran, 1 tbsp. honey.] I could've given my own advice, but I don't know about telling people to put egg yolks or mayo in their hair, like I do... though I swear it works," she laughed.

During her pregnancy Blake didn't give up her beloved high heels, and while most women would opt for a more comfortable wardrobe, the actress bucked the trend.

She wowed on the red carpet in a series of stunning gowns, which showed off her growing baby bump.

"I feel good when I'm wearing heels. I feel sexier. It's important to feel attractive when other things are going a little crazy," she smiled.
