Giuseppe Zanotti Shoes Lure Blake Lively Away From Gossip Girl Set

Giuseppe Zanotti Shoes Lure Blake Lively Away From Gossip Girl Set

If you skipped happy hour on Friday to pay a little visit to Saks Fifth Avenue‘s Manhattan store for the Giuseppe Zanotti appearance, you got a bit more than you bargained for.

Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively surprised shoppers at the department store with a personal visit while on break from the GG set. Lively is no stranger to Zanotti’s famous footwear, that can often be found on the ankles of A-list stars at red carpet events. But after wearing his shoes for so long, the Serena van der Woodsen alter-ego wanted to meet the man of the hour in person. Lively spent a large part of the afternoon at Saks chatting with Zanotti about fall footwear styles and testing out multiple pairs of the designer’s coveted shoes. She finally left with a pair of boots happily in hand (and personally signed by the designer).

While chatting with People magazine, Zanotti said “Blake Lively is a true Giuseppe Zanotti woman. The Giuseppe Zanotti woman loves fashion and enjoys being up-to-date.”

Well, if that’s the case, we can name a slew of women who embody this “Giuseppe Zanotti Woman,” well, minus the cash to purchase a closet-full of his designs. If you can’t afford to step out in a Zanotti original, at least take the designer’s free advice. According to Zanotti, the thigh high boot trend and open-toe booties will freshen up your look for fall. We couldn’t agree more.
