Blake Lively Talks Ryan Reynolds, Why Her Marriage Isn't A 'Dictatorship'

Blake Lively's marriage to Ryan Reynolds is by no means a dictatorship.

Almost one year ago, the blond stunner married the "R.I.P.D." actor in a secret ceremony. The style icon and former "Gossip Girl" star covers the September 2013 issue of Lucky magazine, and inside its pages she dishes about life as a new wife.

“I was recently asked how my style has changed since I got married, as if I was living under some sort of dictatorship,” Lively told Lucky. “I should hope I dress differently at 25 than I did when I graduated high school. I hope I never stop changing.”

Lively, 25, and Reynolds, 36, dated for almost a year before they tied the knot in Charleston, S.C., last September. Her fashion sense was as on-point as ever for her wedding day. She opted for a Marchesa "cloudlike silk tulle" gown featuring crystals and rose-gold embroidery.

Of course, her red carpet moments are no less fabulous now that she's a married woman, but some things are different. These days, you are more likely to see her in the aisles of Home Depot than in the front row at a fashion show. She is in the process of decorating the Bedford, N.Y., abode she shares with her hubby. Currently, she has her heart set on "a handcrafted Rosemary Hallgarten rug and the perfect midcentury Danish side table from Etsy." She credits Reynolds with having "better taste" (although we find that hard to believe), but says they influence each other in different ways.

“Work is important, but my greatest passion is my personal life,” she added.

Earlier this month, Reynolds told Details magazine that "words are too clumsy" to accurately express how he feels about his love. However, the notoriously private actor -- who has had very public romances and breakups with Alanis Morissette and Scarlett Johansson -- did reveal that he and Lively might be parents to a large brood someday.

"We'd love to have a big family," he said. "We both come from big families -- my parents did four, Blake's did five. A lot of people say it's crazy, but we'll only know when we're there, you know? We'll walk through that fire pretty happily, I think."
