Blake Lively’s 29 greatest Instagram photos

The Shallows star's social media hits all in one place.

Blake Lively’s had a pretty good few years.

After finishing up her long-running TV series Gossip Girl she’s shifted effortlessly into film roles with top-tier directors Oliver Stone and Woody Allen, and started a family with husband Ryan Reynolds.

2016 might just be the summer of Lively, though. Her movie The Shallows became a box office hit and cemented her as an actress capable of carrying her own film. In a season of mediocre sequels and remakes, her shark-based blockbuster stands up as proof that you don’t have to reboot some crusty old 80s franchise in order to produce a hit.

Lively’s also had an interesting time on social media. She sparked some controversy earlier this year after a controversial “LA face with an Oakland booty” post, but had the backing of Baby Got Back maestro Sir Mix-A-Lot.

To mark the summer of Lively – and with today (August 25) being her 29th birthday – here are 29 of her very best Instagram uploads…
