Blake Lively Covers 'Allure' May 2009

Gossip Girl beauty Blake Lively models the perfect asymmetrical Alexander Wang dress in the May 2009 cover spread from Allure, on stands April 21. Check out what the 21-year-old actor revealed:

On why she feels like a tranny most of the time: “I feel like a tranny a lot of the time. I don’t know, I’m….large? They put me in six inch heels, and I tower over every man. I’ve got this long hair and lots of clothes and makeup on. I just feel really big a lot of the time, and I’m surrounded by a lot of tiny people. I feel like a man sometimes.”

On her image as a blonde fashion queen: “I’m blonde, and I have a small dog, so I try to avoid looking like a piece of bubble gum.”

On being quiet about her relationship with Penn Badgley: “You see people who will open up their relationships, who are very affectionate on the red carpet or are doing a reality show with each other, and their relationship just seems to crumble, so I decided to keep a vow of silence.”

On what she will say about Penn: “He plays any instrument he picks up, he bought a piano, and then two months later you would think he was a concert pianist.”

    I don’t find Blake to be a pretty girl

  • Halli

    She always looks the same. It gets boring.
    1) tight clothes
    2) cleavage
    3) messy blond hair
    4) frown lines


  • Party Pooper

    She’s such a sweet girl, I’d never think she’s a man. Lovely Lively!
    Maybe her face is not outstandingly beautiful (though I find her very pretty), but she has a great body.

  • me1031

    i feal her pain, im in 9th grade and im 5’7-5’9.
    and i love wearing heals but i cant because i am constantly
    taller than everyone. thats when i wish i was short so i could
    wear them(: hahha. i think she is gorgeus. just needs to
    mix up her style. but other than that (: shees just finee.

  • liz k

    More like Blake Un-lively. How absolutely boring she is!

  • lizzie

    we tall girls can become models ;)

  • Lana

    she is UGLY!

  • zee

    Blake is gorgeous! And she has the best body.

  • athena

    Is she tall? I know Taylor Momsen used to model and is tall…so, are they like both tall or something?

  • cecile

    she says she’s surrounded by a lot of tiny people but all of her costars have the same size, they all are tall, except Leighton Meester. So i don’t understand where that comes from… ok she’s maybe one or two inches taller but that’s nothing.

  • Alyssa

    she is beautiful, but what i like most is the way she wears and looks in clothes. she is a lucky actress who easily walks in the shoes of a model. waiting to see her on some more campaigns soon!!

  • jughed

    so hot! :)

  • essie

    sorry but that cover is awful!!! what are they focusin on? why the extreme close up of her face? the eye makeup is not even that great, woopeedoo let’s just smear black eyeshadow and call it a cover.. isn’t this a fashion magazine, where’s the fashion?

  • Lalique

    Ugh! She looks like a strung-out druggie. Where’s the beauty in that? I repeat: ugh!

  • lakers fan in boston

    the cover looks horrible, it’s what 2 up close
    i like the other pics of her
    i didnt even no she was that tall
    she’s a pretty girl tho and she can dress =]

  • date cute

    she’s wicked hot. she is very tall and leggy. She may be mannish, but i think that is an attractive quality.

  • null

    Beautiful body, regular face.

  • bella

    I love her braclet in the black and white pic.
    I have a lot of respect for her. She is in a popular show yet she has remained very private and choses to stay that way.

  • Rodney h

    You idiots are assholes, how in the world is this girl ugly? People are so jealous. She may not be some amazing beauty, but you know if she walked down the street of your hometown everyone would be wanting a piece. I bet it pisses you people off that she is a nice and down to earth person too, she’s not some bitch with her nose stuck in the air. She’s pretty and she’s awesome, get over yourselves!

  • Sienna

    lol rodney i know right…the girl is freaking gorgeous. but i hate the cover, its almost like they were trying to portray the tranny statement lmao it looks awful. i don’t know whats with all the haters- shes a stunning girl, good rolemodel, healthy, responsible, kind… so WHAT is your problem? god i’d like to see your ass handle fame..oh thats right you would never get it ;)

  • LuckyL

    God, they try so hard to make this b*tch hot

  • brina

    i like blake :) she seems chill

  • tina

    Don’t like the cover, but I do love her!

  • Yily

    Blake Lively is so damn gorgeous! She’s a white girl with curves. It’s so rare to see that in a woman. I love her…sigh…(i’m not a lesbian hahahah).

  • Bruna

    I don’t know why but she seems nothing special to me
    I agree
    tight clothes
    and ect.

  • piscot

    she is probably saying that about “towering men” because all her male costars (i mean, the 3 principal characters-chuck , dan, nate) are 1.75-max 1.80 cm tall. And that in a boy is not tall. It is average. My height is 1.74cm and I can relate to her…sometimes I say to myself that i can be a model, who cares if I only end up with average height guys..but sometimes is just depressing. :D

  • andromeda

    cute, she’s so honest about feeling like a man. :p i can’t deny i’m a fan, but honestly she could’ve looked way better in these photos.. certainly not her best look(s)

  • Haya

    love her.

  • MMA


  • Lulu

    I like her better as Bridget. I’m tall too and guys look up at me. I feel weird. Blake Lively is my fave actress. She doesn’t get enough credit. She’s great! Better than Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale.
