Blake Lively Reveals the REAL Muse Inspiring Her Cannes Fashion Choices
Blake Lively has caused quite a stir during her time at Cannes — so much so that Six Mix-a-Lot himself weighed in on her Instagram caption snafu.
Yet mid-controversy or otherwise, one thing has remained fairly constant about Blake’s time at the French film fest: Her red carpet fashion seemed lifted straight out of a fairytale. With the Internet abuzz about which Disney princess she’d choose as her muse next (in between buzz about her Oakland booty), Blake herself only added fuel to the fire with her Cannes captions, seemingly assenting that the Disney ladies were indeed her style inspo.
“Let it glo,” she punned on this photo of herself in a Versace dress that sparked comparisons to Queen Elsa in Frozen.
“Bippidi Boppidi Bling,” she wrote on another, after walking the carpet with more than a passing resemblance to Cinderella.
Now, Blake is coming clean once and for all about who really inspired all those red carpet looks, and here’s a hint: It’s NOT who you thought.

“Everyone thinks I was inspired by the princesses,” she wrote on this Instagram posted earlier today. “If they only knew…”
Showcasing herself in a strapless black frock with silver glitter polish alongside Disney’s infamous The Little Mermaid villain Ursula, Blake reveals that it was the evil sea witch herself who’s been behind her Disney looks all along. It’s a rather shocking revelation, to say the least: We never would’ve pegged Blake for the villainess type!
Hmmmph. Just when you think you know a celeb, they go and reveal they’ve been channeling a wicked squid.
Touché, Blake. You really had all us poor, unfortunate souls fooled!
