To Blake Lively, Stardom Means Lots of Handbags
Blake Lively
Forget the fancy restaurants and fame – one of the best parts of being on Gossip Girl for Blake Lively is having nice handbags, she says.

"I probably have, like, 60 gorgeous bags," the 21-year-old tells W in the December issue. "I have a closet with my really sharp, fancy, nice ones – the ones that go with my Valentino pumps, for example. And then I have a closet with the ones that are a little more rugged-feeling, the kind that go with my Belstaff motorcycle boots."

Lively, who leads a famously homebody-ish private life, also says that rumors of tension with costar Leighton Meister are nothing more than speculative trash talk.

"I've never really had a competitive relationship in any work situation," she says. "The media is always trying to pit us against each other, I guess because it's just not interesting to say, 'Everyone gets along; everybody just works 18-hour days and goes home to sleep.' That's not fun to read, I guess."
