Blake Lively confused by fashion calendar
Blake Lively admits she finds the fashion industry's calendar confusing and was unsure which Gucci collection she would see at Milan Fashion Week recently.
Blake Lively is confused by the fashion calendar.
The 'Gossip Girl' actress recently attended the Gucci spring/summer 2014 runway show during Milan Fashion Week, but admits she was unsure whether the latest run of fashion weeks are for spring/summer or autumn/winter.
Traditionally, fashion houses unveil their autumn/winter collections in February, and their spring/summer collections in September.
Blake told Vogue.co.uk: ''It was actually really funny leading up to it because I was saying, 'I wonder what the collection is like? I wonder if it will be bright or dark?' And someone said, 'Well, it might be bright because it's spring', and I said, 'No, it's fall', and they said, 'It's spring!'
''Of course they're not showing fall collections in the fall! It's funny ... as involved as I am in fashion and as much a part of my life as it is, I still thought, 'Oh!' ''
The Gucci show marks the first time the 26-year-old beauty has attended a spring/summer runway show as she's always been too busy working in previous years.
She added: ''I've always been working on 'Gossip Girl' in the fall so I've never been to a fashion week aside from in the spring ... I've never seen a spring collection! I came out of high school and went into working on 'Gossip Girl' straight afterwards, so it's a really new thing for me to have free time in the fall.''
