Blake Lively’s Secret Confidence Trick

Whether she’s on the red carpet or walking the streets of Manhattan’s Upper East Side, Gossip Girl‘s Blake Lively seems to have found the secret to confidence. And we just found out what it is for her (because no matter how many pairs of Louboutins or designer dresses you own, everyone feels self-conscious sometimes.)

“I have insecurities like any girl. I used to be really shy and unconfident. I hated being tall. Walking the red carpet is scary, so I pretend to be Marilyn Monroe – someone who owned their sexuality and projected this incredible aura of self-confidence.”

Marilyn Monroe, you say? Well, Blake definitely channeled her confidence idol in Season 5 of Gossip Girl. Check out the pics below!
