Blake Lively is known for her impeccable fashion sense on and off screen. In the actress' new movie Savages, the 24-year-old Southern California native sheds her couture Gossip Girl wardrobe for bikinis and maxi dresses.

So, what did Lively think of the hippie, free love look?

"I loved the clothes," she told Celebuzz. "That's always one of my favorite parts of designing a character."

However, Blake ran into one challenge:

"When I play a character so different than myself I love to hide behind the clothes," said Lively. "It's actually a really good secret-- if you don't look like her, and you don't talk like her then you can disappear."

In Savages, Blake Lively plays "O", a pot-smoking, wealthy and neglected Laguna Beach local who is in a monogamous three-way relationship with both Ben (Aaron Johnson) and Chon (Taylor Kitsch).

Off screen, Blake is currently in a serious relationship with Ryan Reynolds, and overall, she couldn't be more different than "O". That's why her wardrobe made hiding out difficult for the actress.

"When you look like you, you talk like you, you're from southern California and you wear clothes you went shopping for at Top Shop, then it gets to be a little messy," recalled Blake. "Like, 'I don't want people to think this is me!' It was a really weird personal challenge shooting this."

"Can I say something?" interjected Lively's Savages costar Salma Hayek . "[Blake] also designed the tattoo which was part of the wardrobe in a way. She found the artist and worked with the artist butterfly by butterfly, color by color. Just hours, Blake spent making it perfect!"

"It's by one of my favorite artists Sage Fawn," Lively said speaking about the tattoo. She elaborated:

Sage Fawn creates these beautiful, pure, colorful nature tattoos...I thought it was such a perfect example of ["O"]-- this pure, free, hopeful girl that has been really broken and torn by her life and society. I think if you're going to get a tattoo it should be significant. I thought that would be more significant for her.
