It would seem that being an ever popular Gossip Girl, befriending the most powerful members of the fashion industry and being a pretty big deal in fashion herself isn’t enough for Blake Lively. As her apparent close relationship with high-end footwear designer Christian Louboutin continues to grow from strength to cursed strength Blake Lively has now topped the Luck-o-Meter with the newest member of the coveted Louboutin family… The Blake. This idea was first conjured up when Lively met up with Louboutin in Paris whilst she was on set for GG and went for a private tour of his atelier where she became besotted with a pair of strappy heels, yet to be finished. This then made Christian so thrilled that he went on to name these colourful backless heels after Miss Lively, thereafter beginning the legacy of ‘The Blake’!
