Blake Lively is InStyle Australia’s October 2011 cover girl. The October 2011 issue also features Natalie Bassingthwaighte and Jodi Gordon inside.

Inside Natalie shows how to colour block this Spring/Summer, Jodi Gordon masters screen-siren glamour in Spring\’s luxe looks and Man of Style Orlando Bloom talks about how he loves being a Dad; “Even changing a diaper is such a special moment!” and how much he loved playing a bad guy in the upcoming film he stars in The Three Musketeers.

Natalie shares the importance of positive thinking:  “I\’ve been told many times, I can only be a singer, or an actor, or a dancer —that I can only be one or the other, but I\’ve wanted to prove that you can do whatever you want, if you follow your heart, and don\’t settle for ‘no\’.”

We will next see Jodi in the film In The Cup (out October 13)—the story of jockey Damien Oliver\’s emotional 2002 Melbourne Cup victory—Gordon plays Trish, the supportive wife of Oliver (played by Stephen Curry). “It\’s great to be telling an Australian story, and playing a real person.”

Gordon also shares how she experimented with colour for the The Cup, too, dyeing her brunette locks peroxide blonde. The process took nine hour to complete—her tresses bleached four times, over two days, to achieve Trish\’s flaxen look.

“It isn\’t easy being a fake blonde,” she laughs. “Next time I\’ll wear a wig.”

Also in this months’ issue, the announcement of the InStyle Fragrance Awards 2011.  With more than 200 new-release fragrances, InStyle whittled it to just 50 finalists across 10 categories. InStyle\’s expert judging panel* carefully selected the overall standouts from each group.
