Blake Lively was spotted on the set of Gossip Girl in a pair of J Brand 901 Leggings in Blue Viper wash. It goes without saying that anything on the set of GG will be insanely stylish (yes, we’re still addicted, ridiculous story lines be damned), but this outfit gets extra points for working in three of our favorite things: sequins, leather, and denim. Try this look for a casual winter weekend. Check out a whole range of J Brand 901 leggings to find your perfect pair.

With Halloween around and everyone making their apple picking & pumpkin patch visits on the weekend, there are two things to remember. First, the stars love a good pumpkin just as much as you do. Secondly, jeans make the perfect uniform for the causal-yet-taxing task of lugging your seasonal orange accessory around! Blake Lively was seen with pumpkin in hand hailing down a taxi in Rag & Bone/JEAN Zipper Jeans—we’re pretty sure this is a still from Gossip Girl. Her outfit had a bit of animal instinct with a Theodora & Callum clouded leopard haircalf biarritz espadrille and a Lanvin felt hat. Off duty Kristin Cavallari was seen wearing a pair of [BLANKNYC] Spray On jeans in Heavy Dose. The Dancing With The Stars contestant employed a bit of Navajo-inspired styling… and her pumpkins? Much smaller than Blake’s!

Blake Lively strikes a pose in a pair of American Apparel white jeans in the July issue of Glamour Magazine. Looking pretty much fabulous in every shot, Blake says she doesn’t believe in hiring a stylist because she loves fashion so much: “This is one of my favorite hobbies! And I’m going to pay someone to steal my hobby from me? That’s a terrible idea!”
Blake’s career is red hot right now, what with her popular Gossip Girl TV show, a summer blockbuster movie (i.e. “Green Lantern” with Ryan Reynolds!) and a gig as the new face of Chanel‘s Mademoiselle handbag. Need more Blake? Facebook Fans of Glamour Magazine get to preview photos and watch an exclusive video interview before the issue goes live next week!

Yesterday, Blake Lively was spotted filming a scene for ‘Gossip Girl‘ in New York City (per Denim Blog), wearing a pair of Paige Verdugo Jeggings in Eternity wash. This is a very saturated, red wine-burgundy wash that works well against muted tones, such as gray, taupe or beige. The costumer on the show really played up the Paige jeans, which we particularly love tucked into those rockin’ suede, stiletto boots! Also known as the “Eternity Jeans,” the jegging is created with 360 degree super-stretch, lighter weight denim fabric. Kate Moss, Courteney Cox, Heidi Klum, and Jessica Alba are also fans of these jeans.
Blake’s career is red hot right now: after just signing a contract to be the new face of Chanel and securing a steady job prime time show at least through 2012, this girl has the world at her feet! And, snagging herself a rumored new boyfriend — Ryan Gosling (hello!) — doesn’t seem to slow down this It Girl from ‘Gossip Girl’ one bit.
