Check out this photo of Anna Wintour and Blake Lively sitting next to each other in the front row at Gucci. Remarkable how not awkward and relaxed Lively looks chatting with her. It’s almost as if the former Gossip Girl star, face of Gucci fragrance, and fashion world “real girl” icon is totally impervious to the Wintour Intimidation Factor (WIF). And look at the body language: Wintour is sans sunglasses, her legs crossed toward Lively, about to crack a smile! They’re friends! The two-time Vogue cover star might be the only thing other than a Jason Wu bag that gets Wintour smiling. Okay, we know, we’re judging a lot from a photograph.
