Blake Lively ‘turns down NYFW invites’

Blake Lively has allegedly turned down her New York Fashion Week invites to spend time with her husband Ryan Reynolds.

The Gossip Girl actress and style icon is famed for attending the esteemed event along with a host of other fashion-conscious stars.

But a source has told the New York Daily News that the beauty has turned down invitations to every New York Fashion Week presentation despite designers and PR companies "clamouring to have her sit front row at their shows”.

The insider added that Blake was "basically invited to everything,” but decided against attending in favour of joining her husband Ryan Reynolds in Ontario, where he’s filming Queen of the Night.

The source revealed that Blake is expected to be at the London, Paris and Milan shows.

“She normally goes to the European fashion stuff instead anyway," the insider added.

Meanwhile, actress-and-model Jaime King has spoken of her experiences at New York Fashion Week so far. The blonde beauty sat front row at Prabal Gurung's military-themed Fall/Winter 13 show at the weekend alongside Eve.

Jaime gushed about the designer's flair for fashion.

"What I love about Prabal’s work is the incredible mix of masculine and feminine," she gushed, according to Elle. "I feel like his clothing comes from a dream. He uses colour, design, and patterns in a way that nobody else does. I think it’s really exciting what he does.”

Eve- who later performed at the show's after-party - also explained her love of Gurung's designs.

"It’s very structured but also beautiful. Structure works well on my body. I love beautiful elements but don’t like to be frilly and Prabal splits the difference," she smiled.
