Blake Lively, Elle China

Elle China

Blake Lively's been quite the busy cover girl! 

Just a few short weeks after the debut of her gorgeous September cover for Lucky magazine, Elle China is giving us a look at the blond bombshell's turn fronting the pages of its glossy. 

And the former Gossip Girl star definitely doesn't disappoint in her second cover of the season, turning up the va-va-voom volume for the overseas publication!

Unlike her casual cool Lucky cover, which saw the star bundled up in a cozy-yet-chic overcoat, Lively sports a red carpet worthy Gucci gown with fab feather embellishments that's sure to turn heads on the newsstands thanks to the dress' seriously sexy sheer detailing.

Of course, it's not a surprise that Lively sports the designer creation from the Italian fashion house's fall 2013 collection—she is the face of Gucci's Premiere fragrance, after all.

But we also weren't stunned to see her working her enviable curves in the feathered frock because it seems to be the fall favorite of many a fashion editor, who have reached for it for their high-profile September issue fashion spreads too.

Those who thought the gown looked a bit familiar, may recall Kate Upton striking a glam pose in the pages of the American issue of Elle in the same Gucci design. Both Elle cover girls rocked the dress with sulty side parts, with Upton opting for retro glam curls and Lively looking lovely in loose, beachy waves. 


Or perhaps you remember seeing the dress on yet another September issue cover girl? That's right, Sarah Jessica Parker, who fronts next month Harper's Bazaar, also suited up in gown, but the former Sex and the City star proved not all birds of a fab feather flock together, choosing the dress in brilliant shades of blue rather than gold and wearing it with a fuss-free middle part.

But despite the differences in their styling, the cover girls definitely had one thing in common: Each looked absolutely stunning!

Who do you think wore the Gucci design best?
