OMFG, Blake Lively spotted leaving the Upper East Side? Yes, to go a gala at Cipriani. Sigh. Oh to lead the life of a Gossip Girl starlet. Blake was looking polished in purple at the 2011 National Board of Review of Motion Pictures Gala in NYC earlier this evening. Her and her co-stars from The Town picked up the award for Best Ensemble Cast and the Boston-based movie was also named one of the top ten flicks of the year. Ca-ching! Lucky Blake looked picture perfect — a far cry from her drug-addled character Krista — wearing her hair elegantly pulled back into an intricate up 'do. Keeping things signature Serena, Blake made sure there was a dishevelled finish to the style, with flyaways giving it a modern and on-trend vibe. Because of the bold colours of her dress and accessories, she kept her makeup palette simple: a wash of champagne on the lids and up to the brow bone, faux lashes and pink gloss.
