Blake Lively is getting some unwelcome press this week, thanks to some fake nude photos circulating the web. However, Leo DiCaprio's new arm candy is getting some good publicity this month: She's the cover girl for this month's Glamour.

Inside, Florence and the Machine singer Florence Welch interviews the Green Lantern star about her hobbies of fashion, food and… sauce smuggling?

On having a stylist

"You know, my mom modeled and made clothes, so I always had such an appreciation for design. And then Gossip Girl completely blew open the door to fashion for me. I'd go to fashion shows and call my publicist and say, "Can I wear that?" I think I became my own stylist by not knowing any better," Lively said.

"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!"

Well, we'd say she does a pretty good job if she doesn't have a stylist.

On her easy, breezy beauty routine

"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," she mused.

"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."

On her diet

"My diet of choice before events is a chicken potpie from Tea & Sympathy, because they never have enough food at these things," the leggy Lively said.

She even tried to get a restaurant to illegally send her some sauce she loved.

"This is absolutely crazy, but I wanted a sauce from New Orleans, and they wouldn't send it because the FDA didn't approve it. I called the restaurant and I said, "OK, can you buy a teddy bear and cut it open and put it in and send it?" They're like, "No, we are not the drug cartel; we're not sending you your sweet potato sauce in a teddy bear."
