Style icons II.: Blake Lively

“You can’t really go wrong as long as you are true to yourself.” /Blake Lively/

Blake Lively became famous around 2006 after appearing in The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants and playing the role of Serena van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl. A role that she played for 6 years and Serena’s name became a synonym to IT girl. Later on she played in the Green Lantern movie where she met her future husband, Ryan Reynolds. They have two beautiful daughters, James and Inez. The last three years have been very busy for Blake but she played the main role in The Age of Adaline, The Shallows, All I See Is You, A Simple Favor and debuted in her first Woody Allen film, Café Society.
Blake uses her fame to protect children and put an end to child pornography and sex trafficking.

Pregnant and powerful. The actress chose to wear this Frozen inspired Versace dress to at Cannes in 2016…

Best of Met Gala dresses 2017

Last year’s Met Gala’s theme was Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons, which seems a bit weird because the Japanese designer’s work is more like ‘antifashion’. She uses destroyed garments so her collections often consists of absurd dresses. Even so she is considered a brave and groundbreaking artist and has the support of Alexander Wang, Donna Karan and Jean-Paul Gaultier. 

Let’s take a look at last year’s very creative outfits:

Cara Delvingne was wearing a Chanel suit and her whole outfit had an alien kind of vibe.

The queen of every year’s Met Gala, Rihanna fulfilled the absurd theme the best with a dress from not other than Comme des Garçons itself.

My perfume collection

Not many people knows about this but perfumes were already used in the ancient Egypt. We Hungarians took part as well in the making process because it was us who used scented oils mixed with alcohol solutions first. Then of course the French people made an industry of perfume making in the 17th century. That time people didn’t take baths very often so they used perfumes to cover their body smell. The world’s most famous perfumes are the 4711 made by Mäurer & Wirtz and Chanel No. 5, the scent that was personally chosen by Gabrielle Chanel. Now let’s move on to some useful details about perfumes.

Who are ‘the noses’?
They are people who have exquisite smell and work to create new perfumes.

What is the difference between eau de toilette and eau de parfum?
Eaut de toilette contains maximum 10 percent of aromatic compounds while eau de parfum contains up to 20 percent. So all together you can use more amount of eau de toilette.

How to choose your scent?
I think you should take time when it comes to choosing your scent, because it will become a signature, a part of your personal style. While our noses get tired very easily, don’t be ashamed to go back to a store multiple times.
Don’t sprinkle the perfume on the test papers. It smells different when it is directly sprayed on your skin.
Don’t change your perfumes very often, maximum 2 bottles are enough. A lighter smell for spring and summer and a stronger or sweeter smell for autumn and winter will be enough.
Behind the ears and the inside of the wrists are the places you should spray your fragrance.

Here are the perfumes I tried throughout the years and I really admired:

Emma Watson was the face of Lancôme‘s Trésor Mindnight Rose in 2011. She once said in an interview that this scent reminded her a lot of Paris where she was born.

Nina by Nina Ricci became a very iconic fragrance with its apple shaped glass.

I really like the Christina Aguilera perfumes, Insprie is my favourite one.

It has been my dream for a long time to own a Chloé perfume and last year I bought one in Austria. The ad features Harry Potter’s Fleur Delacour, Clémence Poésy.

And this is the fragrance I currently use from Versace:

My most favourite perfume of all is Burberry‘s Brit Sheer, but I couldn’t find the commercial video of it. 😦
