What would Gisele do? Blake Lively reveals her red carpet inspiration

Blake Lively is the ultimate style star, but even she feels uncomfortable on the red carpet.
The former Gossip Girl actress said that she's 'so not confident' when posing for photographers at events that she simply thinks of Gisele Bundchen to put her on form.
She wowed in Gucci earlier this week at the exclusive Met Gala and topped best dressed lists the world over, but it turns out she's still a down-to-earth 26-year-old who would prefer to be anywhere but the red carpet.
"I am so not confident on the red carpet. I just sit there thinking, 'What would Gisele do?' It is such a sensory overload," she told the Huffington Post.
"I saw her at the Met Gala and was thinking, 'Oh, why do we do this? This red carpet is always so scary.' I saw her take a deep breath and put her performance face on, and you really have to do that."
"I'm not comfortable as me standing in front of 500 photographers, so I have to go somewhere else and pretend that I'm the confident person you hopefully expect me to be."
Blake and her husband Ryan Reynolds, who wed in an intimate ceremony in 2012, looked the picture of happiness as they walked the red carpet at the Met Gala.
Lively (26) who is famously close with US Vogue editor and Met Ball supremo Anna Wintour is a regular at fashion's biggest night and her husband of two years appears to have had a change of heart when it comes to their public displays of affection.
The former Gossip Girl actress stunned in a nude Gucci gown, while her other other opted for a classic black tuxedo by the brand, whom she is a brand ambassador for.
