Soon to be unleashed on America due to her co-starring role as The Girl in the new Green Lantern movie (because every superhero movie has to have The Girl in the supporting role, clutching her hands to her chest and looking earnestly to the sky as her man saves the day), Blake gets a jump start on the poledancing routine by getting her Glamour on.

Inside, Blake gives us some high-larious sound bites:
“You know, my mom modeled and made clothes, so I always had such an appreciation for design. And then Gossip Girl completely blew open the door to fashion for me. I’d go to fashion shows and call my publicist and say, ‘Can I wear that?’ I think I became my own stylist by not knowing any better. And once I was told it was time to get one, I thought: This is one of my favorite hobbies! And I’m going to pay someone to steal my hobby from me? That’s a terrible idea!”
Blake honey, there’s no kind way to put this, so we’ll be blunt: YOU LOOK LIKE A HOOKER WITH POOR ACCESSORIZING SKILLS 99% OF THE TIME YOU APPEAR IN PUBLIC. We don’t care if it’s your “hobby.” Hire a pro.
“I loved that dress [Versace dress she wore to her first Met Ball], but I am far too shy to walk around in a dress like that with a slit up to my neck. So I thought, The only way I can wear this is to pretend I’m someone else. Who is somebody who completely owns her sexuality? I thought, Marilyn Monroe! So I’m going to be Marilyn Monroe tonight.”
She’s fucking with us, right? “I’m far too shy to blahblahblah?” Who the hell is SHE kidding? The girl parts her skirt on her legs the second a camera gets pointed at her. Red carpet commenters could pick her legs out of a lineup, we’ve seen them so often and in such detail. Her upper thighs can’t go more than 6 hours without exposing themselves to the world. “Far too shy.’ Blogger, please.
But we’ll be nice (from here on out) because the pictures are actually pretty great. She’s styled well and she’s working that lens. Why couldn’t Uncle Karl make her look this good for her Chanel campaign?
