"I think I became my own stylist by not knowing any better," Lively explains. "And once I was told it was time to get one, I thought: 'This is one of my favorite hobbies! And I'm going to pay someone to steal my hobby from me? That's a terrible idea!'"
Keeping it simple is the actress' number-one rule when it comes to putting a look together for a big event.
"I like it to be easy. I don't feel like I have to do so much with hair and makeup, because I'm the mannequin for these beautiful clothes, so I never want to do anything too distracting," Lively says in her cover interview for the magazine's July issue. "Most of the time, I put my hair in a ballerina bun, and I take it down and it's wavy, and then I leave. I feel shy when people are fussing on me. And my diet of choice before events is a chicken potpie from Tea & Sympathy, because they never have enough food at these things."

Though she didn't address her current romance during the interview, Lively -- who previously dated actor Kelly Blatz and co-star Penn Badgley -- did touch on breakups.

"Every relationship you have, you're learning and growing and taking something from that," she says. "So for me, it's never been too dramatic of a thing when something ends."
Oh, and as for why Lively hasn't jumped on the Twitter bandwagon, she has a pretty simple answer: "Honestly, I'm so sick of myself."
