Top Ten Celebrity Inspired Knee Length Cocktail Dresses - Blake Lively

Updated on May 31, 2011

 My idea for writing this particular hub all started when I was looking for a dress for myself and I decided upon my number one pic in this hub the knee length cocktail dress with black bodice and white skirt. It turns out that it is also a celebrity inspired dress design available at Light in the box ( The site states that this dress is inspired by Serena on the show Gossip Girl, the character played by the actress Blake Lively.

Whether it is Blake Lively herself or the character she plays on television, below are other favorite designs worn by her. This hub starts a series that I will write on various celebrities and the fashion they inspire consumers to wear.


 Blake Lively has become a significant influence on fashion style for the younger generation especially. I chose the number one dress because I love it independently of Blake having worn it. It is certainly unique among the dresses that are available on the market today and it has a timeless and classy quality. Some customer reviews at light in the box say that the dress is reminiscent of a Chanel dress.

Regardless, once I purchased my dress, I was indeed intrigued by the idea of beginning to write some hubs about celebrity inspired fashion, especially for formal and semi-formal dresses. It certainly interests me and with this niche, I can write quite a few hubs.

So, I have decided to start with Blake Lively herself. I researched some of her other fashion choices and here is what I came up with. These are my favorites in knee length formal dresses that she has worn.

 #10 on my list is the Blake Lively White Knee Length Chiffon Celebrity Dress available at for $188. It is available in sizes 2-28W and custom sizes. It also looks great paired with black tights and black pumps as Blake wears in the photo.

      Hi Gramicore, thanks alot for your comment. You're quite right but it is nice that the majority of these dresses are available in such a wide variety of sizes giving us all a chance to wear them and hopefully feel very confident in them.

      Nice hub. Have recently bought a dress, too. And it was knee-high as well. Looking at this hub, I think one of the reasons why Lively looks gorgeous in those dresses is because of her height. I mean, look at how tall and slender her build is! Wish I had that. But anyways, what a nice hub. :)
