Metallic is everywhere this SS'13 season! Metallic fabrics by nature look incredibly luxurious which is why they appear in so many designer collections. For spring, choose colourful metallics in peach, brown, blue and grey from designers such as Stella McCartney, Dolce & Gabbana, Balmain and Balenciaga. Metallic fabrics will also beautifully highlight a tan as Blake Lively demonstrates below. A lighter metallic like Blake's sensational silver Chanel evening gown also makes a great choice for a wedding if you're a guest or the bride! Shop a design close to Blake's by Rachel Comey (£549.77) and browse our favourite metallic evening dresses from Farfetch below.

We absolutely love Blake Lively's fun and playful embellished mini dress.

Knee high boots are an Autumn classic so are a great investment. Gossip Girl's Blake Lively is often spotted rocking knee high boots, like this Rupert Sanderson pair and we love the way it looks. This seasons there are more boots than ever available and we're loving the classic black style. Sam Endelman's over the knee style (£188) would look great with thick tights and a skirt. Or how about Dune's ankle detail boots (£170) with a chunky heel. You can shop more knee high boots below.
The Gossip Girl cast were sharing some personal photos over the weekend as they filmed the final episode of the show. They were filming the end of the sixth series and made sure they went out with a bang (and some cake). Blake Lively, Chace Crawford, Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick have become household names in the last few years since they first appeared on our screens in 2007. The photos show the actors having a cake fight as they partied together, but will there be such a happy ending for their onscreen personas too? Click through to see photos of the cast.

Blake Lively recently surprised us all by getting married to Ryan Reynolds. Details of the ceremony have so far been pretty scarce, but it seems like we're soon going to get to see the dress! Blake and Ryan's wedding photos are going to appear
in Martha Stewart Weddings in December.
Blake got married in a Marchesa dress and although we're yet to see any photos, the designer duo Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig have spoken a bit about the gown. "Blake is incredibly stylish, and she really knew what she wanted. It was very much how we do a lot of brides. We started with a lot of sketches, and we sat down and talked through the sketches until we came to the final dress…she just wanted it to be romantic and beautiful."
Martha Stewart helped Blake organise the wedding so it makes sense for her to print the photos. She commented on the big day, "[It was a] charming, charming wedding. Real people, real love. Just really nice and personal." We can't wait to see the photos! Are you intrigued to see what her dress was like?
If you haven't already chosen your perfect winter coat or are thinking of an alternative to traditional black then may we suggest grey - this season's must-have shade. Choose something with on-trend military buttons like Blake Lively here or alternatively go for a tweed effect or perhaps luxury leather detail. Collars should be extra large or choose a Chanel style coat with no collar at all. Shop just a few of our favourites below.
Rupert Sanderson's designs were in demand in New York this week as two stars of Gossip Girl stepped out in his designs. Blake Lively wore a pair of grey suede knee high boots from the new season collection called Jove (£825) with multi-coloured trousers and a stripey tote. Leighton Meester meanwhile went for a much more classically feminine look with a pair of pink suede Gabor heels (£465). We love both of these girls' style and are struggling to decide between the two styles. You can shop similar shoes below. Which Gossip Girls' style do you prefer?
Long hair lovelies will be feeling the heat right now, so why not wear a fishtail plait like Blake Lively. Sophisticated enough for work, bohemian for the weekend, lets face it beautiful Blake working this trend is reason enough to try it. Fishtails can be a little tricky at first, so check out a tutorial here. The secret for the perfect finished effect is to pull outwards on the plait with your fingers to give it extra volume. Shop the rest of Blake's gorgeously glowing look below.
