Lively talks ‘real life’ pregnancy style

Blake Lively didn’t drastically alter her wardrobe while she was pregnant.

The 27-year-old Gossip Girl actress and her husband Ryan Reynolds welcomed their first child together in December.

And while she was carrying the baby, Blake refused to abandon her signature style for general maternity wear.

In fact while full term, the stunning star wore a KaufmanFranco gown to L’Oréal’s Women of Worth dinner, which was hosted in New York City on December 2.

“I was going to wear a different dress that evening but… it broke,” Blake recalled to People magazine. “I was too big! The zipper just broke. It popped right open. I changed right before I walked out the door. I have that dress for real life, not pregnant life, other than maternity jeans, I didn’t buy anything maternity. Everything is my clothing, it’s something I can and will wear when I’m not pregnant.”

Blake often sported high heel shoes while she was with child. The beautiful blonde claims her heels helped boost self-esteem.

“What can I say? I feel good when I’m wearing heels. I feel sexier, attractive,” she noted. “When I put on Louboutins while super pregnant, it makes me feel more empowered in that moment, it gives me that extra oomph.”

Ultimately Blake is a proponent of pregnant women wearing what makes them happiest.

“It’s important to still feel like yourself, because so much of your life is changing,” she said.

“I would’ve felt foreign in my own body if I’d started dressing differently.”
