Blake Lively Wraps Her Feet in ‘DIY Socks’ Made of Tissues and Hair Elastics After Spending the Day in Heels
When desperate times call for desperate measures, you make do with what you got. Right, Blake Lively?
While the actress has a closet full of designer heels, she may have a shortage of socks. Lively, 28, got tired of her stilettos while on set of The Shallows on Friday, and fashioned her own “socks” out of tissue paper and hair elastics.

“When you wear heels to work but wish you just had a cozy pair of socks, but don’t. So you make your own,” she captioned a photo of her DIY garment.
A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do!
The mother of one was busy on the road with husband Ryan Reynolds and their one-year-old daughter James during his Deadpool press tour. But Lively did find time to take part in New York Fashion Week during which she attended the Michael Kors show.
And while she may not have socks at her disposal, Lively does have a pair of Christian Louboutins named after her — sorta!
“Shoe shopping – I look at the name of the pump: it’s doggone called the Cross Blake!!” she enthusiastically shared on Instagram. “So there you go @amberrosetamblyn David Cross and I FINALLY have a shoe baby! It’s kinda like finding your porn star name but different.”

Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid are the Cindy Crawford and Claudia Schiffer of 2016. And they have the love lock and a friendship necklace to prove just how powerful their bestie bond is. But it doesn’t stop there. KenGi just landed another Vogue spread, marking multiple appearances in the mag together, which got us nostalgic for their best model moments. (So we tracked down our all-time favorites!)
For the editorial, the duo was sent (along with fellow Vogue regular, Karlie Kloss) to catch up with the reigning wizards of the tech world in Silicon Vally. They posed alongside Jess Lee, CEO of Polyvore, Pinterest cofounder Evan Sharp plus its design-and-creative team and Instagram founder, Kevin Systrom.
Danish model Josephine Skriver officially has her wings. She’s been inducted into the Victoria’s Secret Angel Hall of Fame, joining the ranks of Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge and Behati Prinsloo as a full-fledged Angel.
“Josephine Skriver is a stunning young woman and a delightful person,” Ed Razek, Chief Marketing Officer, Victoria’s Secret, said in a statement. “She is so special and we are enormously happy to welcome her to the most exclusive club in the history of modeling, The Victoria’s Secret Angels.”
Skriver couldn’t contain her excitement on Instagram, writing: “I’m literally living my dream right now! Can’t believe I get to share with you today that I’m #NewestAngel for @victoriassecret thanks to everyone that has helped to get me here! So humble and proud to be apart of such an amazing legacy!! THAAAAANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to everyone who believed in me!!”
#AngelJo didn’t stop there, adding, “I don’t even know how to be in my own body! It still feels so insane the day is finally here!”
Now that she’s in the “most exclusive club in history,” here’s what else you need to know about her.
1. She’s in Kendall’s Squad
Gigi, Kendall, Hailey, Cara and Jo, duh. She also made sure to support Kendall and Kylie at the launch of their new clothing collection in N.Y.C.
2. And Selena Gomez’s too …
Her clique is legit.
3. Her Boyfriend Is a Rock Star
Schriver dates Alexander Deleon, lead singer of the punk rock band The Cab. They’ve also modeled together, fronting a campaign for DL1961 denim last year. And he was so proud of his longtime love, that he gushed about her Angel status on Twitter in one of the most romantic threads we’ve ever read.
4. She’s Walked in Three Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and Landed the Cover of VS Swim’s Catalogue this year
She earned those wings!
5. She Grew Up with Gay Parents
Skriver’s mother is a lesbian and her father is gay. She’s been very open about her childhood and is a proud “IVF” kid, she told i-D magazine last year.
“It has taught me to look at the world and every new thing with open eyes and an open mind,” she shared in the i-D interview. “None of us are the same… We are all born in different cultures with different personalities, and we all have a right to just be who we are! It has without a doubt opened my heart and taught me that love does not judge, love does not discriminate, and love does not hate.”
6. She’s an ambassador for the Family Equality Council’s Outspoken Generation Program
“I hope I can help raise awareness about how amazing and loving parents members of the LGBTQ community can be,” she told i-D. “Who they love does not make them any less capable of raising great human beings. The more people realize that my own upbringing and that of others were healthy, positive ones, the more they will come to understand that the love in an LGBTQ household is no different.”
7. She Has a Younger Brother Named Oliver, and He’s Super Stylish Too
They share the same parents, and should win an award for most adorable sibling duo.

We’re constantly updating our Last Night’s Look gallery with all the best red-carpet moments (gorgeous dresses! dazzling accessories! sky-high heels!). Now, let’s talk beauty. Each week, we’ll be highlighting one of the most gorgeous makeup and/or hair moments, along with details on how to recreate the look — straight from the makeup artist or hairstylist — in our feature, Look of the Week.
With the recent launch of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, supermodel Lily Aldridge has been jet-setting across the country to celebrate the annual mag’s three-cover special. And during the promo tour, we’ve been seeing a whole new side of the star — a bold, colorful side — with the help of celebrity makeup artist, Patrick Ta. Her latest look, highlighted with a poppy coral lip, is giving off major spring vibes, so we’ve tapped the makeup pro for all the scoop on the warm weather beauty moment, below.

“Her dress was so beautiful and white — I didn’t want to do anything too out there,” Ta tells PeopleStyle of his decision to give the supermodel a statement lip. “We were in Miami, and I thought the color went with the city.”
So Ta chose a gorgeous bright coral shade to really make the supermodel’s pout pop, as he does with most of his clients, including Olivia Munn, Gigi Hadid and Shay Mitchell, these days. (You could say he has a thing for statement lips!)
“I love an orange lip, and I want all my clients to wear it,” says Ta. “Lip colors make a look so much for fun — they bring a whole new vibe to the full look.”

For the fresh lipstick look, Ta began by lining Aldridge’s lips with M.A.C Cosmetics Pro Longwear Lip Liner in What a Blast, and then filled in the rest of the lip with Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Electric Coral.
Aldridge, who we rarely see rock a bold lip, was enchanted by the unexpected pop of color, says Ta. “She loved it — she hasn’t done a orange lip in a while, so it was a fun look.”
For a statement pout like Aldridge’s, Ta recommends keeping the rest of the face fresh with minimal makeup. “Remember when wearing a bold lip or color that you want to let that color shine,” he tells PeopleStyle. “So to make color work, keep the rest of the face clean, and color will be fresh and cool instead of tacky.”

You’d think someone who has landed major fashion campaigns, designed a namesake accessory line and even had an entire documentary dedicated to her personal style would be out of career goals at this point. But 94-year-old Iris Apfel is not like most people. She lives by her own strong style motto and is the busiest campaign model of the spring season (yes, busier than even Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner). We caught up with the new face of the clothing line, Blue Illusion, to discover her iconic accessorizing tricks and amass as much fashion wisdom as possible from the timeless tastemaker.
For her new partnership, the style icon is not only starring in Blue Illusions’s Spring 2016 ad campaign (and accompanying video), she helped style the shoot and welcomed the photo crew inside her magnificent N.Y.C. apartment (like we said, she’s busy). “All of the accessories in the campaign were mine. I accessorized everything,” she tells PeopleStyle. “I have a very big collection. I’ve been collecting since I was 11 years old. I’m 94 now, so do the arithmetic. It’s a lot of stuff.”
She credits her 83 years of accessorizing know-how to one person: “My mother worshiped at the alter of the accessory and she taught me that they were extremely transformative. You could have one basic black dress and if you had a group of accessories and you had some creativity, you could make 20 outfits. Change them around. And I learned a lot from that.”
Which is exactly what drew her to Blue Illusion’s simple, elegant designs, saying they make the perfect “foundations” in a wardrobe. “I thought they have a wonderful product and I’m always interested in clothes that are architectural and suitable for people of all ages,” she shares. “That’s something I really champion and I think they do a very good job on all those fronts.”

Considering this marks her second campaign of the season (she’s also working with Kate Spade for the second year in a row) she’s the most active 94-year-old model in the game. “Oh my god, I love being busy, I think it keeps me alive. I’m probably the busiest person you ever heard of. I’m busy to the point of insanity.”
Though there is one requirement for every job she takes on. “If it isn’t fun, I don’t want to do it.”
Looks like blondes really do have more fun! Just ask Ali Larter, who has reverted back to her signature sandy, California-inspired shade, after a brief stint as a redhead for her reprisal role in the new Resident Evil film.

Although Larter is excited about returning to life as a blonde, she says her former fiery strands gave her a bit of an edge. “It’s almost embarrassing being this blonde again,” she tells PeopleStyle, exclusively. “Redheads are cooler and more under the radar — if you can believe that!”
Larter was previously a redhead for her reprisal role of Claire Redfield in the final installment of the Resident Evil film franchise, but tapped her go-to colorist, celebrity colorist Tracey Cunningham, who is the owner of L.A-based Mèche Salon, for the “California blonde” shade.

“Ali [is] a long-time client of mine, and we have gone through this process before — going red to blonde for a movie role,” Cunningham, the actress’ colorist of more than 10 years, tells PeopleStyle. “We took Ali back to the ‘California blonde’ that she is. She wanted to go back to her natural look. Her base color is a gorgeous natural dark blonde, so I like to complement that.”
Cunningham adds that the bringing Larter from a deep, fiery hue to a light, sandy blonde is a dye job that can take up to a couple of days to complete.
“This process was a two-day situation and 12 hours of work,” she says. “It was an ‘in-salon’ job — we did four rounds of highlighting, being very careful to maintain the integrity of [and to protect] her hair using Olaplex [during the coloring process].”
But Larter says the 12 hours went by fast, as working with her colorist is anything but work.
“We talked, read, laughed, ate macaroons,” she tells PeopleStyle. “I’ve known and loved her for 15 years. She is a brilliant lady.”
So now that the star is back to her roots, should we expect any major cuts in the near future? Not so much, Larter says. “After finishing the movie in South Africa and my daughter, Vivienne, turning 1, I’m just coming up for air,” she says. “I am ready to just keep it easy and be my normal self.”

We all know Kendall Jenner loves a good ’90s trend. And what would ’90s fashion be without Britney Spears‘ stylish influence. From her school girl skirts to her parachute pants, she was an ultimate tastemaker for the decade. And it looks like Kendall is still following Brit’s stylish reign.

The supermodel hit the front row at Calvin Klein Thursday in an outfit that had us reaching for our old Delia’s catalogues. (You kept some of yours too, right?) She paired her white, wide-leg khaki-like trousers with a high-neck crop top and black pointy toe-heels.
The look immediately gave us fashion flashbacks to Brit’s 1999 “Sometimes” music video, where she’s seen dancing on the famous Paradise Cove pier in Malibu wearing all white as she croons about finding someone to hold her tight.
We doubt she dressed like Brit on purpose, but Kendall did prove her love for ’90s fashion is unparalleled.

Kendall definitely has more crop tops than Britney (we know, seems impossible) and she’s never met a choker she didn’t like. So don’t be surprised if you see more pop star looks pop out of her closet in the near future.
Do you see the similarities in their looks? Who wore it better? Kendall or Britt? Sound off below!
Olivia Culpo’s Fashion Week Strategy Involves Changing Clothes in the Car and Plenty of Ice Cream, Of Course
We already proved how insanely stylish former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo is, but now we’re going to give you a whole new reason to fall head over heels for the owner of those enviable cheekbones and killer jawline. Turns out, even though she’s the picture of chic while attending the shows, the process of getting that way is a little bit sloppier. Olivia gave People‘s Style and Beauty Director Andrea Lavinthal a peak behind the glamorous curtain, showing her tricks of the trade to change clothes in the back of a moving vehicle, and even stopping to take a quick ice cream break (despite the below freezing temps in N.Y.C.).
If you’re looking to cop Culpo’s exact look, her stylist Jennifer Mazur was kind enough to give us the full lowdown on all of the day’s ensembles which included a healthy dose of Jennifer Fisher jewelry and all the Giuseppe Zanotti your heart could ever desire. The first tough, streetwise look of the day was head-to-toe Public School, paired with a black fur jacket by Reiss, hat by Eugenia Kim, a Jennifer Fisher choker and Giuseppe Zanetti booties. At the Rachel Zoe show, Olivia swapped out her biker-chic look for an all-white ensemble from the designer which she smartly paired with a pair of dangly earrings from Jennifer Fisher and a white clutch from Maiyet. Culpo charged ahead, changing looks yet again, looking runway ready in a full look from Jonathan Simkhai’s Resort 2016 collection, minimally accessorized with an armful of Jennifer Fisher bracelets. Finally, the former pageant girl called it a day in another full Resort 2016 look from Prabal Gurung that she accented with a pair of thigh-high brown suede Giuseppe Zanotti boots and a smattering of Jemma Wynne jewelry.
And it wasn’t just the ice cream that convinced us that our girl Olivia knows how to celebrate, in the cab on the way to her final appearance at Prabal Gurung and after a long day of non-stop runway shows, the street style star put her feet up and kicked back with a chilled glass of bubbly. A girl after our own hearts.
What do you think of Olivia Culpo’s ice cream tradition? Do you think you could change so quickly in the back of a car? Which is your favorite look?
Robyn Lawley may be famous for showing off her gorgeous curves while wearing gorgeous bikinis in the pages of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, but the Australian beauty says she’s not thinking about being glam while posing.

“Modeling is pretty much 99 percent of the time uncomfortable,” she tells PeopleStyle of shooting, citing her unpleasant experience of posing on a rock for hours. But she does have a strategy for keeping her mind off things. “I think about my sweatpants that I’ll be wearing that are so comfortable afterwards. I always dress most comfortable to a shoot because when you finish it, you just want to put your sweatpants on and your T-shirt and you’re like — this is heaven, actual heaven.”
That said, the six-three, size 12 beauty is quick to clarify that she’s got a pretty cushy gig. “It’s not every day,” she says of modeling. “You get days off, and you also travel a lot. And, I mean god, it’s not like curing cancer!”

The new mom also recently launched her own swimwear brand, after finding it impossible to score a bikini that fit her properly. “I used to wear underwear bottoms — regular underwear. Because I hated (bikinis) cutting into me, and I could never find ones that fit,” she says of starting her own line.
Because Lawley now has “truckloads” of her own suits, she finds herself the lucky recipient of a very different kind of takeaway from the SI set.
“I get given shoes a lot because they always outsource giant shoes for me and they’re like — oh no one else is going to have this big size, here you go! I’m like — thanks guys,” she jokes of her size eleven feet.
