Blake Lively 'Preserves' Our Interest With Her Cupcake-Decorating Talent, Shade-Throwing Skills & More

Posted on

Blake Lively is hungry. And not just for enchiladas or experience. She’s also hungry for a cupcake that she doesn’t get to eat thanks to a window-entering, baked-goods-stealing home décor enthusiast … well, it will all make sense when you watch her “73 Questions” video with Vogue, below.

The actress (and newly minted lifestyle blogger) deflects some of the criticism of her new internet venture, Preserve, with a full-fledged charm offensive in the video. From kicking off her barely worn “Everlasting Gobstopper” Louboutins upon entering the apartment to discussing the sweetest gifts she and her husband (that would be Ryan Reynolds) have ever exchanged, she’s all sunlight and smiles.

That’s not to say she’s above the snark. When asked about her ideal Starbucks order, Lively wonders, “Do people go to Starbucks these days?” But ultimately she’s got a good sense of humor (her dream duet partner: “An unplugged microphone”), a really cute outfit (one of our editors is ready to track her down and find out where she got that dress) and some amazing hair (which she admits she recently cut shorter on one side of her head: “very unfortunate”).

We won’t give too much away — you’ve got to watch if only to see her embellish a cupcake with floral icing patterns — but suffice it to say that this video both completely explains Preserve and makes it that much more inscrutable to us at the same time.

Are you loving Lively? How are you feeling about her new website? Let us know below.
