It’s the new year, and when Dubai goes big, so do we! Our first post of 2014 is bang on with an exclusive interview with Actress Blake Lively.
I am sure you have lots of endorsement offers what made you sign up with Gucci?
Its an honor to be associated with an iconic fashion house with so much history like Gucci. Frida is also a main factor, she is so inspiring with setting up a Chimes for Change raising over $4 million dollars and the Gucci woman can be the equestrian woman, the woman in the suit, the woman in the flowy bohemian dress, or the couture woman. I feel like this fragrance embodies all of them. It’s been a pleasure to work with Gucci.
The creative part of shooting the video in old school Hollywood glamour setting with director Nicolas Winding Refn I loved the whole process!
You work with the best make up artists and stylists around the world from being on tv and movie sets what tips did you learn?
I use to always be in the sun because I liked the all year around tanned glow. I know learned I can achieve the look I want with bronzer and I know take care of my skin more which means using SPF everyday as apart of my skin routine.
If we open your make up case what will we find?
I grew up in California so undone hair, natural make up is what I like and grew up with.
I always use Per-fect Beauty Gel The trick is to apply Skin Perfection Gel with your fingertips for an evened out skin tone. I love the glow it gives to my skin and its lightweight.
What’s it about Gucci Premiere fragrance that you love?
I’m always looking for scents that are both masculine and feminine. I used to mix perfume with cologne, but with Première, the wood notes give it masculinity, the citrus is fruity, and the floral is that feminine vibe. Its perfect for me.
What do you do between press junkets and filming? What’s relaxing?
Spending time with my family and baking. I love cooking and baking for sure. If I had more time in Dubai I would take a cooking class and visit the spice market to learn to cook Middle Eastern cuisine for sure. It’s a way to connect to the culture.
They say you don’t have a stylist. Is that possible in Hollywood?
I love fashion so much so for me it doesn’t feel like work. I have good friends in the industry that I can call when I need shoes or a dress. I like experimenting and creating my own look.
