Motherhood sure suits Blake Lively.
The "Gossip Girl" actress stars on the May 2015 cover of Allure magazine, and her post-baby glow shines bright.
The cover shoot photographed by Mario Testino features a close-up shot of the 27-year-old mom lounging in a crisp white shirt by Jil Sander. Her minimal makeup lets her blue eyes take the spotlight, and her tousled blond locks add to the relaxed, feminine feel.
Inside the issue, "The Age of Adaline" star opens up about motherhood, life after "Gossip Girl," and why she's not afraid to age.
"People are obsessed with beauty and youth and with looking and feeling young forever. But look at a woman who is granted that: She's trapped, because it's tragic to be young forever," she said of her immortal character, Adaline, in the upcoming flick. "And also, having a child makes you realize that we pass on for a reason. You think, I have to go, because it makes room for you."
