Blake Lively designs her first dress

With striking personal style that runs the gamut from bohemian to old Hollywood, 27-year-old Blake Lively never fails to grab our attention - and she's done it yet again, this time trying her hand at fashion design. The former Gossip Girl star gave fans a glimpse of her new project, sharing a photo on Instagram of the very first dress she has designed.

“I may not be able to draw worth a lick, but I am proud of this dress I co-designed with Amour Vert for @preserve_us ,” she wrote alongside a photo of herself wearing the gorgeous gown. “You better send me pics if you buy it! I want to share your photos!! #PRSRV so I see it…”

The pretty gown features a cream, sleeveless bodice with a tie-front and peekaboo cutour, while the skirt is a light shade of pink with a purple pattern. Ever the fashionista, Blake completed the ensemble with a pair of cotton candy-pink heels and wore her long locks down in tumbling waves.

The dress appears to be part of a new project as part of Blake’s lifestyle website Preserve, which she launched last July after months of teasing fans.

The blond beauty wrote an editor’s letter for the website, explaining that it aims to capture “the power of imagination, ingenuity, quality and, above all, people.”

It’s no doubt been a busy few months for Blake as she and husband Ryan Reynolds adjust to parenthood after welcoming their first child, a girl named James, in December.

The actress, who kept a relatively low profile to spend quality time with the new arrival, recently opened up about her experience about becoming a mother.

I feel like I’ve figured out the most important thing to me, and everything supports that," she told Allure magazine. She also revealed why the couple initially chose to keep their daughter’s name a secret.

“It’s her life,” she explained. “She should have her privacy until she chooses not to have her privacy, just as I got to choose and my husband got to choose.”

However, Ryan has since revealed that the baby girl’s name is, in fact, James, joking: “It’s Butternut Summer Squash. No it’s out there. It’s James. Everyone knows.”
