Taking time away from the set of her upcoming film "Adaline," Blake Lively landed herself a feature in the April 2014 issue of ELLE magazine.

While striking a few poses for the Cedric Buchet-shot spread, the former "Gossip Girl" leading lady opened up about her new quiet life and shared details about her personal style.

"Having a personal life has been really nice," Blake explained. "I'd been on Gossip Girl 10 months a year for six years, shooting 15-hour days, so I hadn't had time to just be since I graduated high school."

She continued, "It's been nice to kind of settle into my own skin and work on things that I really love."

In regards to her go-to apparel, Miss Lively stated, "The older I get, I guess I wear less sparkle. And I know that someday my knees are going to look like elephant knees."

"But for now, my hemlines are still pretty high," she added.
