Blake Lively: You've got to feel comfortable

Blake Lively wears different styles every day, ranging from biker jackets and jeans to feminine dresses.

The American actress is known for her flawless fashion choices, and often dons designer gowns on the red carpet.

Instead of relying on the style credentials of others, 27-year-old Blake dresses herself. She doesn't pigeonhole her wardrobe, instead opting to mix and match her clothes.

"Since I don't use a stylist, I'll look at the runway shows on I'll call in a rack, and then I pick from that," Blake explained to People magazine.

"Every day it's different. I'll wear a motorcycle jacket, jeans and cool boots; when I'm feeling feminine, I'll wear a flowy dress. I think the best thing to do is whatever makes you feel the most comfortable, the most confident. Everyone has their own version of that."

Blake has been working with Italian fashion house Gucci for the past few years, and is once again the face of their Première perfume.

It's not just expensive fragrances that Blake favours the smell of; she also loves the scent of things that remind her of home.

"Coming from California, I like the scent of the sequoias and the ocean; I'm pretty addicted to Le Labo candles. And I love the smell of my mom's skin," she smiled.

"However, the smell of fresh brownies or cookies wins over my mom's scent!"

Blake likes to wears Première, citing the elusive and powerful orange blossom and leather-spiked scent as her reasons for choosing it.

"I used to have to mix cologne and perfume. This strikes the perfect balance between soft and strong," she added.
