What we would give to spend Christmas at the Lively house…
Both Blake and husband Ryan Reynolds are known for being a fiercely private couple – remember when they snuck off and got married before we even knew they were engaged? – but since she launched her lifestyle site Preserve earlier this year, the Gossip Girl star has slowly let us all in to see her perfect life.
Yesterday, the stunning actress posted this gorgeous snap of her making an amazing dinner with a private chef and enjoying the meal with friends. Stood in the kitchen in a timeless Breton, a topknot and a pinstripe apron, she looked effortlessly chic. What we most loved about the pic though was how she showed off her ever-increasing baby bump.
The actress has been praised for her chic maternity style – bringing some serious glam to the baby-bump world. Whether in the highest of heels or the tightest of red-carpet gowns, Blake has proved that being pregnant doesn’t mean you have to give up on your style.
Captioning the Instagram snap; ‘Nothing better (or tastier) than an evening spent with friends who share your passion.’ She also thanked private chef Hung Huynh for such a great night.
The actress has made no secret of her love of food, speaking to French Vogue last year about how she denies herself nothing and starts each day with a “cup of hot milk chocolate.” Not your average Hollywood actress!
She launched her Goop-style website this year where she gives tips (and posts amazing photos) of entertaining, cooking, style, home and wellness. Basically, she shows people how to have as fabulous a life as her. We will obviously try to emulate it but ideally an invite to her amazing New York mansion for Christmas dinner would be even better…
