Now that the former Gossip Girl star has delivered her baby girl, the new mom is dishing on how she managed to look so chic throughout her pregnancy, as well as why she just couldn't stop wearing heels.
"What can I say? I feel good when I'm wearing heels. I feel sexier, attractive," she told People. "When I put on Louboutins while super pregnant, it makes me feel more empowered in that moment, it gives me that extra oomph."
"Trust me, when you see that scale starting to go up up up - and not the little number slide on top but the big number slide on the bottom - you go shopping and buy yourself some red-soled shoes," she continued.
In addition to her love for Loubis, one of the biggest secrets to Blake's maternity style was that she didn't wear too many maternity clothes. "Other than maternity jeans, I didn't buy anything maternity. Everything is my clothing, it's something I can and will wear when I'm not pregnant."
"It's important to still feel like yourself, because so much of your life is changing," she continued. "I would've felt foreign in my own body if I'd started dressing differently."
Still, there was a moment when she realized she couldn't rock everything she wore before her pregnancy. Although she wowed on the red carpet in a black backless KaufmanFranco gown at L'Oréal's Women of Worth dinner in New York City Dec. 2, Blake originally had something else in mind.
"I was going to wear a different dress that evening but ... it broke," she says. "I was too big! The zipper just broke. It popped right open. I changed right before I walked out the door. I have that dress for real life, not pregnant life."
The Age of Adaline star and her hubby Ryan Reynolds welcomed their first child together, a baby girl, in December.
