NEWS FLASH: Blake Lively IS Florence Welch!


"Quick! Somebody bring me my Florence Welch costume!"



I would imagine for a woman like Blake Lively, the world is simply not enough. As I previously mentioned, Leonardo DiCaprio just won't do. She has to have Ryan Reynolds, too. One pair of Louboutins will not suffice. She'll settle for no fewer than 40. (That's right. 40.) Forget having a closet full of Chanel ... she has to be the face of the entire effing brand or she just can't sleep at night!

So, is it really so crazy of me to think that being a successful television and film actress isn't going to cut it for her, either? Could it be that she wants everything ... to the point of moonlighting as a successful indie rock goddess, the lead singer of Florence + the Machine?

Yes, that's right. I realize that this theory is going to be controversial, but I'm putting it out there: Blake Lively IS Florence Welch.



Really, it's the schnoz that convinced me ... but look closely. There are many similarities.


That Blake is one sneaky kitten. Surely, I'm not the only one who can see the resemblance. After all, what is Florence but a glammed-down Blake in a red wig and ugly dresses? Exactly! Amazing things can be done when the awesome powers of hair and makeup are utilized correctly. If it can make Khloe Kardashian look almost human, it can certainly compensate for the jump from Florence to Blake.

Envision it this way: Swap red with bangs for California blonde. Lose the sleeves and slash the skirt to about 14 inches. Add a pushup bra, a bit of concealer and some false eyelashes. Are you seeing what I'm seeing? Yep, Blake Lively.


Could this be why Blake doesn't have a stylist? Of course, it is. She can't trust anyone else with her secret. Blake can't have anyone monitoring her when she's ducking into NYC phone booths to change and emerge as her flame-haired alter ego.

Now, I know what you're going to say: "Meredith, Blake and Florence are 'best friends' if the media is to be believed. Florence interviewed Blake for Glamour Magazine last year. They've even been photographed together. How do you explain that?"

To that I say, "Haven't you ever seen Fight Club?" ... Yep. I think I've made my point.

Any excuse to post this photo of Brad Pitt ...

I guess it could be. The side by side pictures do look kind of the same.

I think everyone in Hollywood has the same nose...

Meredith said...

I think they have the same mouth, too, though. And cheekbones. And face shape. And eyebrows ... Dammit! They're the same person! I'm convinced of it. :)

I don't care about either of them, but I liked the Fight Club reference.

This is such an insult to Blake. She is much prettier..

Meredith said...

No disrespect intended, but I'd argue that if it is an insult to either, it's an insult to Florence.
Yeah, Blake's prettier, to be sure. But Florence is smarter and more talented.

Blake had a nose job...she cheated...

By the way, that photo of Brad Pitt, Meredith forgot to mention that it was taken in my basement when I had ordered Brad Pitt and Ryan Reynolds to fight to the death for my affection..

Meredith said...

Oh yes, sorry about that, Jan. I did neglect to mention that. My bad. :)
