Blake Lively shows off her body in rare bikini snap: 'Smokeshow'

Gossip Girl star Blake Lively is known for her daring red carpet looks, and had one of the most talked about Met Gala outfits this year.

Now, the Hollywood actress has swapped her Versace gowns for something a bit more casual: a stunning white bikini.

Blake, who has three children with husband Ryan Reynolds, looked gorgeous as she stood poolside in a wraparound white bikini.

The A Simple Favour star showed off her natural wavy hair and toned figure as she smiled for the camera.

Blake also paid subtle tribute to Olivia Newton-John by quoting a line from Grease in her Instagram caption, writing: “summer lovin’…had me a blast”.


It wasn’t long before the post was flooded with positive comments.

“With a body like that, I’d have a blast all year round,” one wrote.

“Ok smokeshow,” a second wrote, while another added, “You look amazing!”

“How do you feel knowing that tomorrow you turn 35? You definitely stayed in your 20s,” gushed a fourth.

Blake and Ryan tied the knot in 2012, and are known for their humorous sledges at each other on social media.

Fans were eagerly awaiting Ryan’s comment and he didn’t disappoint, writing: “Wrexham is the Ibiza of Wales.”

The Deadpool star was referencing the town of Wrexham in Wales, after he made an impulse decision with his friend Rob McElhenney to buy the Wrexham soccer team.

Recounting the story on Jimmy Kimmel’s late night show in the US, he said that he didn’t tell his wife until after the purchase was made.

“I remember seeing Blake and saying, ‘I have bad news and I have really bad news. The bad news is I slipped into someone’s DMs again. The really bad news is that I might have bought half of a fifth-tier national Football League in Wales’,” he quipped.

According to Ryan, his wife was furious and her reaction was ‘not good’.

However, after taking Blake to see a match at Wembley Stadium, she became a huge fan of the team.

“The atmosphere at Wembley is electric, and you talk to some of these players, and they said their whole lives could go by as a professional athlete, and never enter that stadium, so, it’s a massively revered moment,” he told Entertainment Tonight.

Blake then confessed to her husband that she understood the hype around football, and is now ‘obsessed’ with the ‘club, community and the town’.

“She’s already like, looking at the schedules throughout the year, wondering which matches she can attend, so, it’s pretty great,” he said.
