Blake Lively needs to show waist

Blake Lively looks like she is "hiding animals" if she doesn't accentuate her waist.

The former 'Gossip Girl' star is a huge fan of Kate Moss' style but has learned not to copy the British supermodel's looks as they are not always flattering on her figure.

She said: "There are things that I see on Kate Moss and think, 'I have to have that,' but when I try it on me I look like a potato.'

"I don't like to wear things that don't look right on my body - that Twenties drop waist, or even Sixties mod. If you don't cinch in the waist it looks like I'm just hiding, you know, animals? I just start to look like the cargo part of an airplane."

The 27-year-old beauty - who is married to Ryan Reynolds - loves fashion so much, she refuses to hire a stylist because she thinks that's one of the most fun aspects of her job.

She told People magazine: "Fashion is such a passion of mine. That's the reason I don't have a stylist, not because I think I can do it better than any of these people, but because I just love it so much that it would be like handing over something.

"It would be like making a cake and then handing it off to someone else to ice and decorate. Why would you do that?"
