Stars – they’re just like us!
Style icon Blake Lively recently admitted that during her early days of fame, she’d pass off Forever 21 fashions as “vintage” when questioned on the red carpet about who designed her look.
The 31-year-old “Gossip Girl” alum – who famously does not work with a stylist – made the relatable confession during a conversation with InStyle for their May issue.
“I wore Forever 21 much longer than I admitted. I just started saying it was vintage because I was so shamed for it,” Lively said with a laugh, of the short, strapless, $13 yellow frock she wore to the 2005 Teen Choice Awards, Us Weekly reports.
According to the outlet, it was her second-ever red carpet appearance.
“For me, fashion is a form of self-expression. It also really takes me out of my comfort zone,” the A-lister continued. “One of the reasons I’m an actor is that I’m naturally very shy, so it’s liberating to dress up and pretend to be someone else.”
