Natalie Ludwig: 'Blake Lively is my style icon'
Model Natalie Ludwig is constantly inspired by Blake Lively.
The Canadian star was scouted aged 13, but only began her career when she signed to Elite Management in 2014. Turning 21 this month (14Jul16), Natalie's fashion credentials are on the rise and she's already walked for big brands like Givenchy, Burberry and Dolce & Gabbana.
But no matter how successful she gets, she'll always be in awe of another blonde beauty in the showbiz industry.
"Blake Lively, I think that she has such a classic beauty and she really inspires my everyday style. Oh, and being married to Ryan Reynolds wouldn’t suck either," Natalie laughed to W magazine when quizzed on who she thinks her doppelganger is.
Luckily for Natalie meeting Blake isn't a dream out of reach, as her brother Alexander Ludwig is an actor who has starred in movies including Lone Survivor and The Hunger Games. It seems the film star also helps with his sister's beauty regime, as Natalie admits she uses his texturing paste on her hair to keep flyaways in place.
She has plenty of her own top tips too though on maintaining her gorgeous looks, especially when it comes to her skincare routine.
"Oh, (for a face mask I use) mud for sure," she explained. "Travel makes my skin freak out a little bit, and since my job requires lots of flying, I needed to find something to help me out. Glamglow makes a mask that is the greatest thing in the world, I can apply it at the beginning of my flight and since it’s clear it doesn’t make me look like a monster. I just land with super happy and moisturised skin."
Although she doesn't have much time to style her blonde tresses Natalie never looks dishevelled, and she puts it down to using dry shampoo on the go and a thorough treatment whenever she does wash her hair.
