Blake Lively Used to Wear Forever 21 on the Red Carpet and Pretend It Was Vintage

In a recent interview with InStyle, Blake Lively admitted that she used to wear Forever 21 at red carpet events and then lied about where it was from. “I wore Forever 21 much longer than I admitted. I just started saying it was vintage because I was so shamed for it,” said the actress with a laugh.

In 2009 she told Glamour that she wore a $13 Forever 21 yellow dress during her second red carpet premiere. “People were like ‘who are you wearing?’ But when I told them, they said I shouldn’t admit to it, like it was more impressive to have a designer gown that’s thousands of dollars. After that I just told people it was vintage.”

Nothing wrong with that. Fake it until you make it and as Christina Aguilera once famously sang in her 2010 song “Glam” (available on iTunes): “Don't let the clothes wear you, it's all in how you move, it's all an attitude.” Ha!
