Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, and even Time Magazine — Blake Lively has come a long way since her Gossip Girl days, dominating the headlines everywhere with her style choices. However, did you know she doesn’t even have a personal stylist?

The actress, wife of actor Ryan Reynolds and mama to daughter James, just gave birth this past weekend but she’s already out and about, going the extra mile to attend her best friend’s wedding. It’s no wonder this go-getter firecracker of a woman is our mum crush of the week!

During her latest pregnancy, Blake was not afraid to flaunt her curves, a trait we greatly admire.

This is how you glow, plus-one. Pre-order @blakelively's Resort 2017 dress on @modaoperandi

This is the look that captured the attention of many. She paired an off-shoulder Cushnie Et Ochs bandage dress with beaded Louboutin pumps. The dress hugged her curves in all the right places, and showed off her (then) budding baby bump perfectly.

#TheShallows Day 1 …she thinks I'm way overdressed for 7am. #shesnotwrong ??

Pulling off the nude trend flawlessly in this beaded mini dress by Elie Saab. The intricate details of the dress provided a gorgeous distraction to her growing bump. Now how’s that for a fashion tip mummies-to-be?

For the premiere of her latest movie, The Shallows, Blake wore a Carolina Herrera gown with a leather bodice and tulle skirt showing just a hint of leg paired with her go-to Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

And of course, who could forget how resplendent she looked in this red Oscar de la Renta form fitting creation, topped off with jewels from Van Cleef and Arpels and Lorraine Schwartz, statement Louboutins and a megawatt smile.

Red carpet ready actress aside, we’re absolutely in love with Blake as a person.

She doesn’t follow trends, wears whatever she wants, and looks good doing it! Just check her out in this daring gown-denim jacket combination:

I mean, it's not a gooooown if there's denim over it. Right?!?

Everyone thinks I was inspired by the princesses. If they only knew…

Her tongue-in-cheek humour is definitely part of her charm. Blake has been quoted as saying: “Having a baby is just living in the constant unexpected. You never know when you’re gonna get crapped on or when you’re gonna get a big smile or when that smile immediately turns into hysterics. It might be like living with a drug addict.” To us, that captures the experience of early motherhood perfectly!
