Blake Lively may be in the middle of an unenviable situation -- she's threatening to sue over what she says are fake nude pictures of her that have surfaced on the Web -- but for the most part the 23-year-old beauty has it pretty good. She's starred as the lead in the hot teen drama "Gossip Girl" for the past four years, will appear in the soon-to-be summer blockbuster "Green Lantern," just signed on as the face of Chanel, and is rumored to be dating Leonardo DiCaprio. See? Not a bad life. And though she constantly finds herself on "most stylish" lists and even accompanied the Karl Lagerfield to a recent gala at the Met, the new redhead tells Glamour magazine that she doesn't even have a stylist.

"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."
