The star gushed to us that to pair go way back. "I'm a huge fan of his but he was really the first person who brought me into the fashion world. It was my first big event in New York. It was a big deal because it was Seventh on Sale and I had just started my show [Gossip Girl] so no one knew who I was."

Even before the twosome became buds, Blake was a huge admire of the American designer's work: "He understands that simplicity is really sexy. So there's nothing too complicated about his designs or his shapes yet that doesn't mean they are not entirely innovative," she gushes. "He's able to keep the woman as the focal point and emphasize her best outfit rather than the outfit overpowering the woman."
