In 2007 before I’d even seen Gossip Girl (we’re behind in the UK) I had already labeled Blake Lively as One to Watch in 2008.

Unfortunately things didn’t go to plan and 2008 ended with her receiving the Most Disappointing Award.

Our fingers and toes were crossed for 2009.

Before we knew it “She Was Back”.

Gone were those Vena Cava ankle length skirts, and in came Versace gowns with plunging necklines and thigh high splits plus Adam and Topshop playsuits.

Stella…I mean Blake’s got her groove back, and I for one couldn’t be happier.

As my mother always said “if you’ve got it flaunt it”, and boy has she been flaunting it this year.

Welcome back Blake, we missed you.
