Blake Lively Reveals the Secret Inspiration Behind Her Stellar Style (PHOTOS)

blake lively and her mom Whether she's blonde or bronde, rocking a boho look on the street or a vintage glam gown on the red carpet, Blake Lively seems to constantly kill it in the style department. And to whom does the celeb mama to 9-month-old James owe her flawless sense of style? In a recent Instagram post, Blake payed tribute to her "best dressed" icon: her mom!


Blake's mama, Elaine Lively, has been in showbiz for years as a talent scout -- and the matriarch of a brood of actors! (You know by now that Blake's big sis Robyn Lively played THE Teen Witch, yes? And all of their other sibs work in Hollywood, too!)

So it's no surprise that Elaine's a style inspiration to her own daughter! Check out the latest adorable snap of the duo, in which Blake gives a shout-out to the Duchess of Cambridge (aka She Who Best Recycles Stunning Looks) and her own brand Preserve for supplying new duds.

So perfect! No wonder Blake calls her mom "best dressed." She looks like the reigning queen of travel chic.

There's even more proof that Elaine's a fashion-forward force to be reckoned with. Check it out.

Best date ever. My mama ���
