Blake Lively has revealed that takes inspiration from Brazilian supermodel Gisele when it comes to making red carpet appearances.
"I am so not confident on the red carpet," she said. "I just sit there thinking, 'What would Gisele do?' It is such a sensory overload."
The actress also revealed that she also counts Beyoncé's little sister Solange Knowles as an inspiration after attending this year's Met Ball together.
"I saw her at the Met Gala and was thinking, 'Oh why do we do this?' This red carpet is always so scary," she told Huffington Post.
"I saw her take a deep breath and put her performance face on, and you really have to do that.
"I'm not comfortable as me standing in front of 500 photographers, so I have to go somewhere else and pretend that I'm the confident person you hopefully expect me to be."
Former Gossip Girl Blake looked stunning on the red carpet at the Costume Institute Gala, dazzling in a nude sequinned Gucci gown on the arm of her husband Ryan Reynolds.
But rather than head to any of the glittering, star-studded after parties, Blake revealed that she left to go and eat her favourite dessert instead.
"I ate hot fudge sundaes," she told "Extra" host A.J. Calloway at Gucci's Chime for Change party Tuesday.
"Yeah. That's what I look forward to because you're just, like, in a corseted gown all night, like, just give me a hot fudge sundae."
She visited the well-known Serendipity in New York City's Upper East Side to indulge in some frozen hot chocolate with extra peanut butter sauce on the side.
"Closed that place down," she said. "That's how I do an afterparty ... Peanut butter frozen hot chocolate, extra thick. Then you get peanut butter sauce on the side, and you get a hot fudge sundae, and you use the peanut butter sauce for that too."
