Apparently Gossip Girl star Blake Lively smells as good as she looks. Or close.

Soon, we'll know for sure: She's the face of Gucci's fragrance Gucci Premiere!

"I admire the qualities of the Gucci Première woman and feel honored to represent the fragrance," the 24-year-old actress said in a statement Tuesday.

Lovely Blake Lively

"It is a pleasure to collaborate with [Gucci's creative director] Frida Giannini."

Giannini said: "In conceiving this fragrance I was inspired by timeless Hollywood glamour and the iconic leading ladies of Hollywood's golden era. Blake Lively's unique style and charisma brings that allure to life in a very contemporary way."

Gucci Premiere hits stores in the U.K. in July and worldwide in September.

Lively hits the big screen this summer in Oliver Stone's film Savages and the small screen this fall in Gossip Girl Season 6, the CW series' swan song.

Stop us if you've heard this one before, but gorgeous Gossip Girl cast member Blake Lively is apparently nothing like her character on Gossip Girl! Crazy!

Primary case in point: Blake does not party or get around.

The 24-year-old actress tells Marie Claire that “People like to draw parallels between my life and the scandalous stories on Gossip Girl."

"I do dress similarly to my character, so they think, She lives this life on and off set ... I recently shared how many boyfriends I’ve had [four], and people were like, ‘That’s impossible!’ But it’s true."

"I’ve been with very few people. If I’m not with somebody who really excites or inspires me, then I’d rather be by myself.”

Those four guys would be Ryan Reynolds, Leonardo DiCaprio, Penn Badgley and ... the guy before Penn Badgley. Lucky fellas!

On preparing for her Savages role, Blake told the magazine, “I went to the gun range and learned how to shoot a gun for the first time."

It looks as thought Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are totally nesting.

Just a few days after reports surfaced that they were house hunting in Connecticut, the Gossip Girl star and her beau reportedly did buy their own place.

The couple, who were first linked late last year, "bought a beautiful country home" in Bedford, N.Y., a source tells PEOPLE. Spoiler alert: It's not cheap.

"The house cost more than $2 million," a source said of the property.

Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds

The two actors, who starred together in the super-hero film The Green Lantern, have been seen in Boston, New York City and New Orleans in recent months.

It looks like Bedford, N.Y., is their new spot of choice, however.

Just 45 minutes outside New York City, but offering privacy in a country setting, it will serve as the perfect respite for the couple of ... several months.

They have been spotted around town doing everything from horseback riding, to buying chocolate milk and dining at the Bedford Post Inn. Quite cute really.

Blake Lively and boyfriend of six months Ryan Reynolds want to live together, according to reports, and are supposedly looking into making that happen.

The couple had domesticity on the brain April 12, when they strolled through the upscale town of New Canaan, Connecticut, an hour outside of New York.

"They checked out a lot of home decor," says a source of the pair, who peeked at a china boutique, the Whitney Shop, and a jewelry store, Pennyweights.

Adds a second insider close to the Gossip Girl star and her actor beau of half a year, "They love getting out of the city and appreciate a slower pace."

They haven't signed on the dotted line yet, and this report is almost certainly overblown, but the two are already well practiced at playing house.

Reynolds put the L.A.-area home he shared with ex-wife Scarlett Johansson on the market and now spends much of his time at Lively's pad in NYC.

"Ryan is practically living with her already," says one insider familiar with the pair's comings and goings. "When he's at her apartment, it feels like home."

In March's issue of Elle, Gossip Girl star Blake Lively shows off her ridiculously good looks and fashion sense, modeling a red-hot Michael Kors swimsuit, suede and patent leather sandals by Pierre Hardy, a Blumarine jacket and other items.

Items most mortals couldn't afford, and wouldn't help us look as good as her anyway. Oh well! Did we mention she also dates Ryan Reynolds? Some people ...

On top of all that, Blake actually seems like a cool girl and pretty down to Earth for a star on the rise. Excerpts from the 24-year-old's interview with Elle ...

On the men in her life: “I’ve had four boyfriends in my whole life. I’ve never been with anyone that’s not a boyfriend. If I spend time with a man, it’s because I think there’s somebody that I know well who has been a friend for a while.“

On not having a stylist: “When I go to an event, I’ll send Christian (Louboutin) a picture of my outfit and say, ‘What shoes do you think I should wear with this?’”

On kids: “I hope to have a few girls one day. If not girls, they better be trannies. I have some amazing shoes and bags and stories that need to be appreciated.”

On reports that she and Ryan are apartment hunting: “Newspapers say a lot of stuff. I wish I could afford half the places I hear I’m looking at. Sign me up!”

Sorry, Scarlett Johansson. But it's becoming increasingly clear that you have a legitimate reason to be jealous of Blake Lively.

Multiple pieces of evidence over the last few days confirm the rumor that this Gossip Girl beauty is dating Ryan Reynolds.

  • Gorgeous Blake Lively
  • Sexy Ryan Reynolds

Ryan likes what he sees. So does every other warm-blooded male.

FIRST, witnesses tell People the pair was spotted in Ridgefield, Connecticut on Friday, holding hands, admiring the holiday decorations and sampling dessert together at Deborah Ann's Sweet Shoppe.

"They picked their own flavors, English Toffee and Chocolate Fudge Brownie, but put them in the same cup and shared it," an insider says. "They seemed very happy together. They were very excited about the ice cream."

Well, sure. But calories are not the only thing these two shared: TMZ has uncovered a video that depicts Blake and Ryan totally making out during a trip to a bed and breakfast in Utah. Watch it now and then come up with a nickname for these two...

Blyan? Rake? Hottest Couple of All-Time?
