Blake Lively: ‘I look unrealistically awesome on the red carpet’

Blake Lively looks “unrealistically awesome” when she attends red carpet events because she’s usually wearing pyjamas and onesies.

The Gossip Girl star revealed she was pregnant with her third child when she joined her husband Ryan Reynolds at the premiere of Pokemon Detective Pikachu in May, and it was reported earlier in October she had given birth over the summer.

The Canadian actor confirmed the news on Wednesday by sharing a picture of himself, Blake and their baby daughter, with her face obscured, on Twitter, while the actress launched a baby registry with Amazon.


Speaking to People about the registry, the 32-year-old joked that her appearance on the red carpet is the complete opposite of the comfortable maternity style she can be seen wearing in the comfort of her own home.

“(My style is) comfortable, comfortable, comfortable in real life and unrealistically awesome when I have to do press. But that’s only a couple days a year, if that. I really raise the bar for myself, then it’s back to pyjamas, onesies, and disappointment,” Blake laughed.

She then jokingly described her postpartum style as “Lord Varys”, referring to Conleth Hill’s character in Game of Thrones, who is regularly seen wearing dark cloaks.

For her baby registry, Blake has created a list of “must-have” product recommendations, which include the Playtex Diaper Genie, Baby Jogger’s double City Mini stroller, and diapers from Jessica Alba’s The Honest Company.

“Before I had my own kids, I asked all the parents I trusted most for a list of their go-to items. My registry is made of all those products plus ones that I’ve discovered myself over the years,” she explained. “It’s also a great way to share my must-have list with my friends, as they did with me when I needed it.”

Blake and Ryan are also parents to daughters James, four, and Inez, three.
