Blake Lively Reveals The REAL Reason Behind Those Many, Many Outfit Changes

Blake Lively Reveals The REAL Reason Behind Those Many, Many Outfit Changes

After a whopping 9 (or 10 if you count that coat dress) outfit changes in one day last week, we couldn't help but wonder what Blake Lively was up to or what she was trying to prove. Now, she's given us our answer...

It's fair to say that Blake Lively left us utterly awestruck last week when she totted up an epic 10 outfit changes in the space of 24 hours. Sure, we'd seen three or even four different looks from other A-listers while they've been on their respective promo trails but TEN? Not only is that unheard of but we didn't think it was physically possible for a human being to unclothe then redress that quickly. And considering most of her appointments and appearances were ticked off before lunchtime, it must have been some challenge. 

While we questioned what the explanation behind the 27-year-old's mammoth outfit changes was, we boiled it down to just having too many gorgeous looks to choose from. However, as it turns out, there was some method to her fashion madness. 

Chatting to US mag People, the Age of Adaline actress revealed that there was a very practical reason behind her countless outfits and it's something we imagine all you new mum's out there will appreciate.

"So my proportions definitely started to, shall we say, increase throughout the day. I walked out onstage for one appearance in an outfit that had fit perfectly when I tried it on many hours earlier, but by the time it got on me, I thought, 'Oh no! This isn't going to cover them up at all!' I was very worried about a wardrobe malfunction." 

Being the lady she is Blake refrained from directly saying which body part she was talking about, but it's clear she's referring to her new shapely bust. It's also worth mentioning that no one wants a wet patch to make an appearance, let alone when you're being papped at every given opportunity — so yeah, we're kind of down with Blake's countless outfit changes. 

However we didn't even come close to seeing the entire array of outfits Blake had lined up for her Age of Adaline tour. Not by a long shot. 

She continued to reveal that in the run up to the film's premieres and press conferences, the stylist-less starlet enlisted the help of her older sister — and her daughter James' godmother — Robyn who helped her whittle down her choices.

How many outfits do you think Blake had lined up for the tour? Go on, take a guess. 20? 50? Nope — it was more than FIVE HUNDRED. Yikes... 

After getting through all those looks, she and her sis managed to make a shortlist of 256 ensembles and that's before she even started thinking about shoes, bags and accessories. Wowza. 

Should she ever wain of acting or writing for her lifestyle website Preserve, we reckon Blake could have a career as a pretty successful stylist. Food for thought, hey?
