Blake Lively celebrated the re-opening of the Chanel Soho Boutique in New York City on Thursday with a super sparkly purple and gray gown. It's rare to see the "Gossip Girl" star so covered up!

The actress recently told Marie Claire magazine that she's always loved fashion and doesn't use a stylist. While filming her TV series in Paris, she met Karl Lagerfield and John Galliano. She explained, "So I went to dinner with Karl Lagerfeld and we got to spend a lot of priceless time together. Oh my gosh, riding around in Karl Lagerfeld's Rolls-Royce with the top down. Insane!"

Blake admits she never googles herself because she thinks it's destructive: "Why? I mean, I'm with myself all of the time. Why would I want to see myself on the internet? I can look in the mirror."
