Blake Lively's 21st Birthday Bash Pictures


Gossip Girl star Blake Lively celebrated her 21st birthday with a flapper-themed party at the New York Palace Hotel in NYC on Sept. 6.

“I love to plan parties,” Blake tells Life & Style. “That would be my career if I weren’t an actress.”

Blake’s high school friends and family were among the crowd, along with Gossip Girl co-stars Chace Crawford, Leighton Meester, Jessica Szohr, Ed Westwick, Connor Paolo and Michelle Trachtenberg. And of course, her boyfriend (and co-star) Penn Badgley was there too. James Franco was also on hand, and crooner Michael Bublé even sang “Happy Birthday” to Blake!

“They were very cozy,” a partygoer reveals. “They seem as if they’ve known each other forever.”

  • Rose

    didnt Keira Knightley throw a flapper-themed party at a club when it was her 21st birthday? Pure coincidence, i’m sure.

  • Angeline

    Aw. Blake is so awesome, and it’s good to see she hangs out with her castmates offset. They all look gorgeous. Great party theme.

    this is a lame theme idea.

  • yaya

    i love the theme of the party. and her cake looks amazing.

  • is_It

    There’s no SOTP cast, they must have all hated BL these days (for her smugly fug mug )not only America. Not that surprising. And I’m w/ America, Amber & my fave Alexis.

  • Crystal

    I like the theme of her party. I wonder if the Blake/Leighton rumors will finally end since people who don’t like each other usually don’t invite the other to their birthday party or Leighton’s case, attend the party.

  • Stephie

    It says James Franco, but in the picture that is (i’m almost positive) John Patrick Amedori! I don’t know if James attended the party, but that is not James in that picture.

  • fkgfkjgf

    i told ya, it’s a horror movie!! that’s hot.

  • fkgfkjgf

    ok, i just suddenly love them.

  • Yily

    Happy birthday to blake. She’s so beautiful. I just love to see that all the gossip girl cast got together to celebrate her birthday. Go blake!

  • michelle

    Love that idea! That’s so cute! And they all look amazing! Especially Jessica and Chace. I’m surprised that James Franco was there!

  • jeff

    James Franco was at the party, but those pictures weren’t released. I was the photographer that night.

  • jeff

    One of the photos of him is on my site..

  • nancy

    I love the roaring 20′s theme! I would do it for my own 21st bday, though it wouldn’t be any where near as glamorous as Blake Lively’s, heh. I like Jessica and Leighton’s look the most, and of course, Ed <33

  • ac

  • devit jonathan

  • devit jonathan


  • Helena

    Where was Taylor Momsen? Too busy trying hard to look edgy?

  • giadana

    Everything looks a little too perfect & manufactured.

    I bet the studio paid so they could get these hot flapper pic out there of their “Gossip Girl” product.

  • Blair

    OMG blake lively is only 21???she looks 28 to me… god she looks old!!!

  • newport beach, 92660

  • deanie

    Hey JJ, ALEXIS BLEDEL got a b-day party too at Las Vegas. Hope that you could get some info & pics. too.

  • dialectic

    rich kids celebrating their own banality with a fat line of coke and a cliche cake that im sure no one touched

  • newport beach, 92660

    #42- They weren’t rich when they started doing Gossip Girl. + I bet they DID it the cake, cause it looks too good… even for someone who is on a strict diet… seriously

  • Juliana


  • male

    blake has really nice breasts..

  • David


  • Michelle

    Isn’t it kind of sad how all the cast members attended Blake’s birthday but barely any of them showed up at Ed’s?

  • kkcc

    looks like she had a great birthday!!

    i love her cake :)

  • sara

    Yea Blake definitely does look beautiful! I would love to know where she got/who designed that amazing headpiece she’s wearing in the pictures…The bejeweled art deco one (you can see it best in the middle picture of the thumbnails). Anyone know??

  • Ashley
