Blake Lively Rocks the Flag for “W” Magazine

Blake Lively is the latest muse to grace the cover of the December 2008 issue of "W Magazine".

The "Gossip Girl" star is rocking a short, strapless red top that flares out at the bottom to reveal more red fabric or painted in red color.

Thing is, Blake has gone all patriotic on us on this cover by clutching the Stars and Stripes by her waist. And with the election of Hollywood favorite Barack Obama as president, showing one’s patriotism has suddenly become the new black for celebrities and mere mortals alike.
