Watch: How Blake Lively Went From TV Actress To Hollywood Royalty

7 Apr

The end of a hit show, a major ad campaign and a wedding. For Blake Lively, 2012 was all about major beginnings and endings.

In June, the Gossip Girl actress — who ranks 18th on Celebuzz’s Hollywood Power Index — was named as the face of Gucci’s new fragrance, Gucci Premiere. The luxury retailer approach the star due to her “extraordinary beauty” and love of fashion.

“Although she’s young, she’s also very determined,” Gucci creative director Frida Giannini said last year, “and I liked this spirit … She knows how to be a diva in the right sense, with an aspirational glamour.”

Days after celebrating the launch of the fragrance at the 2012 Venice Film Festival, the actress wed her Green Lantern co-star Ryan Reynolds, 35 on September 9, 2012 in Mt. Pleasant, S.C. The pair — who met on the set of the 2011 superhero flick — made a major leap in their relationship three months prior to the nuptials. The couple invested in a country home in Bedford, N.Y., estimated to be worth up to $2 million — the same price Lively’s hubby spent on her oval cut diamond, roughly 12 ‘carat total weight’ wedding ring.

Just a day after the hush-hush ceremony, it was business as usual for Lively. Returning to the New York City set of Gossip Girl that Monday, the star shot scenes for the sixth and final season of the series that made her a household name.

As the saying goes, when one door closes another opens. As the actress proved in Oliver Stone‘s Savages, she can do much more than just play the privileged Serena van der Woodsen. Take it from her co-star, Salma Hayek:

“It was really fun to work with someone so professional, and so smart and with a director [Oliver Stone] who gave us so much space to really create and be apart of it,” the actress told Celebuzz. “But also, when you are with a lot of boys it’s great to have a sister, you know, to be there with you.”

Celebrity Cheerleaders

What do Snooki, Jessica Simpson and Kylie and Kendall Jenner all have in common?

Besides their history with reality TV — all four ladies have at one point or another shouted cheers from the bleachers, the field or on top of the pyramid, with pom poms in tow.

As San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens fans across the country count down the last hours until kick off, Celebuzz is taking a trip down memory lane — and in some cases, right into some stars’ yearbook pages.

Long before she took home the Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild (and come Feb. 24, maybe Oscar?) for Best Actress, Silver Linings Playbook star Jennifer Lawrence donned a cheer outfit for Kammerer Middle School as a seventh grader in Louisville, KY.

Before making her mark in the soap opera world and eventually, the Live! stage, Kelly Ripa cheered for Eastern Regional High School in Voorhees, New Jersey.
