When I started reading this WWD interview with Blake Lively, I assumed the thing I would find most fascinating was Karl Lagerfeld’s brilliant decision to photograph her from the side so the focus would be on the Chanel Mademoiselle handbag she was modeling and not her famous womanly curves. But then I got to the third paragraph and read this: “I’ve just always believed you should put a lot of positive out there… When I have bad days, I just eat lots of chocolate ice cream and dance to the Lion King soundtrack. It’s really odd, but it’s true.” Shockingly, the writer, who joined Lively at a dinner hosted by Lagerfeld, did not follow up: Is she talking interpretative dance to “Circle of Life” or simply goofing off to “Hakuna Matata”?
What’s your go-to pick me up song? I’m partial to the Cure’s “Mint Car” myself.
