"That’s one of the first times I left my house in four months. Otherwise I’m just a boob truck. Open for service.  It’s hard to keep up with this level of attention. I’m going to leave the house and wear 37 outfits! I’m like trying to do as many outfit changes as possible," she said.

In the complete three day promotional tour, Blake's wardrobe bill was estimated to come in at a whopping €4.5 million.
