Blake Lively dons a Chanel jumpsuit on the October 2010 cover of Marie Claire UK.

The gorgeous ‘Gossip Girl’ actress features in an amazing editorial shot by Guy Aroch wearing Victoria Beckham, Antonio Berardi and Giorgio Armani.

In her interview she tells us why she doesn’t have a stylist, why she branching out career-wise and she also tells us why she never googles herself.

This issue hit newsstands this morning.

Here are some extracts from her interview.

On her style: “I’ve always loved fashion. That’s why I don’t use a stylist. Number one, it’s such an expression of self.”

On branching out from Gossip Girl: “I’m on a very commercial show, so the last thing I want to do is a commercial movie. I wanna take risks, I don’t wanna play it safe. I mean, I could probably make more money if I did more commercial projects. It would be nice to buy an apartment but I’m 22 and I don’t need to yet.”

On romance: “At the end of the day, you’re just in any relationship. How does anybody go to work every day and come home? You just do it and it either works or it doesn’t.”

On whether she googles herself: “No. Why? I mean, I’m with myself all of the time. Why would I want to see myself in the Internet? I can look in the mirror. I think it’s destructive.”
