WHEN THEY GOT COZY AT CANNES

WHEN THEY GOT COZY AT CANNES

Not all PDA is kissing – sometimes it's just gushing. When Lively talks about their romance, she talks about the two as partners: "We help each other with basic things from just helping what we have to do that day to saying, 'Hey there's an emotional challenge in this, what do you think? You know how you would conquer this?' "

ON THEIR PRE-RELATIONSHIP 'FIREWORKS'

"About a year after Green Lantern had come and gone and we were both single we went on a double date – [Blake] was on a date with another guy and I was on a date with another girl – and it was like the most awkward date for the respective parties because we were just like fireworks coming across … We were buddies for a long time, which I think is the best way to have a relationship, to start as friends."

The plunging neckline. The super-high slit. The slicked-back braid. There was no question that the small-screen star was ready to amp up her image in her sexy red Versace gown when she strutted onto that red carpet like a seasoned pro.

Sadly, she's not scheduled to attend this year, but, oh, what we'd give for a Blake Lively cameo. She kicked off last year's festival in an oxblood chiffon Gucci Premiere gown (not to mention one of the best black tie braids we've ever seen), then proceeded to churn out one killer designer look after another (see here, here and here) in the way only she can do. Someone buy this girl a ticket, stat!

Lively and Reynolds's wedding wasn't just a shock – it was awe-inspiring too. The lovebirds made it official on Sept. 9, 2012, at South Carolina's historic Boone Hall Plantation with the help of Martha Stewart and her team of bridal experts, and let the domestic doyenne run a few photos in her Weddings magazine later that year.

Mayonnaise, it doesn't just make burgers delicious – it's also the recipe to the new mom's shiny locks. "My mom taught me this really great beauty tip," she told Byrdie. "She used to put oil or mayonnaise on the bottom half of her hair before she would shower. That way, when she would shampoo, the soap wouldn't strip the bottom of the hair and dry it out, making it brittle."

"I wore this Sam and Lavi top with necklaces by my friend (and Preserve artisan) Margo Morrison when I announced my pregnancy. We weren't prepared for what an exciting response we got. We sold out instantly. We tried to reorder, but Sam and Lavi sold out as well. So they reprinted the fabric and made a new set exclusively for us. That was so rewarding to see the response," says Lively, who does an exclusive interview in this week's issue of PEOPLE.

Before major closet envy sets in, remember Lively isn't the type of girl to say, "Oh, this old thing? I got it at some little shop in Paris years ago, I can't remember the name …" No, she's the stylish poster girl for her website Preserve, where a plaid mohair coat and tweed newsboy cap are instant Blake-ifiers. And she isn't afraid to re-wear – this time her cozy charcoal sweater gets more dressed down.

Even in pregnancy, she's dressing for the job she wants – Martha Stewart's, that is. In an angelic white Michael Kors knit with a coordinating embroidered skirt, Lively fits the role of a maternal domestic goddess for a one-on-one about her lifestyle site at the Martha Stewart American Made Summit. Her crisp and clean monochromatic ensemble matched the neutrality of the crafty host, her neighbor in the 'burbs – and presumably her idol. "That's the only woman that can creep up on my man and I would be okay with it," Lively joked of the domestic doyenne.

Something tells us we'll be seeing a lot of this trick: Another hiked-up floral skirt effortlessly paired with stylish separates. This time there's a casually draped scarf involved, along with an "environmentally responsible" handmade striped T-shirt by Amour Vert and a Michael Kors Miranda drawstring bag.

Most moms-to-be might invest in one decent coat they can actually button come third trimester. But the actress takes staying warm to a new level with another dramatic wool cloak (this one by Lindsey Thornburg) on a crisp fall day. Though it's heirloom quality, the coat is "inspired by tales of the clever raven as a mediator between life and death," which isn't exactly bedtime story-friendly.

"I'm gonna amp up my style by wearing things that are stretchier," Lively told PEOPLE. But instead of the elastic-waist pants route, the star goes haute couture, opting for a sparkly tulle Michael Kors gown with some stretch to it. "It needed minimal alterations," Kors explained. "In fact, we just added a slip. Blake looked beyond beautiful in it."

She's said she "could spit out a litter of kids," but she starts by wearing a litter (of puppies) on her whimsical patterned separates. Normally, we'd have a hard time forgiving someone for sporting top-to-bottom canine-printed pieces, but if anyone can convince us that these Michelle Kim pants and matching top are chic, it's the former Serena van der Woodsen.

"With a new baby on the way there is so much to do!" Lively wrote in the Oct. 6 pregnancy announcement on her site. But even with everything on her to-do list, she hasn't let picking out interesting outfits and making unique layering decisions fall by the wayside. Case in point: her printed Michelle Kim skirt, checked Loup "Capri" top, mock turtleneck wool coat (also Michelle Kim) and Collina Strada cross-body.

An A-list star who doesn't use a stylist? That's right. This best dressed list regular does it all on her own – from the dresses, including her Gucci Première Met Gala gown, to the dazzling jewels – which makes her red carpet looks that much more impressive. "I'll look at the runway shows on Style.com. I'll call in a rack, and then I pick from that," she tells PEOPLE. "I think the best thing to do is whatever makes you feel most comfortable, the most confident."
