Exactly!! Agree 100% with everything you've said.

I love her and I think she totally deserve to be on the list. She's definitely one of the best dressed celebrity at the moment, she doesn't have a stylist and yet always manage to deliver something quite interesting everytime she show up at an event.
Can't wait to see the full list, never thougth Anna would put Lady Gaga on her best dressed list.
The cover is flawless btw.

The 'don't have a stylist' line is all a load of bull. They do.

It basically means instead of someone saying to her "these shoes?", she says "those shoes".

Someone's already done all of the work of getting the selection there, the celebrity or whoever simply narrow it down to one out of the choice someone else has already made. If that.

The cover image is beautiful as a wide view shot and thankfully it isn't too upclose because she does not have the charisma to be a standout on a newssstand.

Anyways, this thing is $10.99! I flipped through it and it's totally not worth it, IMO But I guess you'll love it if you're into being reminded how styles and trends have been recycled over and over and over and over and over again throughout the years!

ETA: Just wanted to add that besides the fact that it's an annual edition, I think it's also a bit more pricey because of the printing..which is quite nice. But then again, it's mostly just celeb snapshots on fine paper, which just makes it just a step higher from most weekly magazines (that are $2.99!) if you ask me.

How do you know? Maybe she legitimately doesn't. Or only uses one for major events. Is it so crazy to think that someone with that much money and access would love fashion and want to pick out her own things?

She may well 'pick her own things' but there's stylists involved for certain. Do you believe she gets on the phone and rings designers for them to send over selections to her? Then moves on to calling up her jewellery contacts, before moving onto calling in her own shoes and bags? Someone always pre-selects and then Blake may well narrow it down out of a very small choice. But it's certainly never stylist free.

I'll remember this cover as one of the rare times when Blake Lively is allowed by Vogue to have breasts. The amount of air-brushing they did for her swimsuit editorial in the summer was unforgivable. Also, girlfriend needs to do away with metallic/copper eyeshadow.

I'm so tired of US Vogue trying to make Blake some kind of a style icon, especially when her "style" is just clothes made of minimal amount of material in an attempt to showcase maximum amount of flesh.

It is Leighton Meester grabbing Blake while screaming "WHEN IS IT MY TURN" at the top of her lungs.
