Forget just dressing like your favorite celebrity, thanks to an insurgence of celebrity lifestyle sites, you can now emulate them entirely. From Gwyneth Paltrow’s infamous “GOOP” to Blake Lively’s new “Preserve,” there’s something for everyone in the lifestyle site market.
Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell and her bestie-turned-business partner Michaela Blaney have been blogging for years at ShayMitchell.com, but just this week overhauled their site into an entire lifestyle destination, rebranded as Amore & Vita. (In case you’re not fluent in Italian, the name means love & life). The site chooses a different theme each week, with every post drawing inspiration from that theme. The result is a site that features “colors and patterns to places, ingredients and everything in between.”
The launch of Shay’s new venture got us thinking: With so many celeb lifestyle sites out there, how does one distinguish between them? Do you turn to Lauren Conrad or Olivia Palermo for fashion advice? And should you get menu inspiration for your upcoming Scandal viewing party from Blake or Shay?
We decided to help you skirt those daily dilemmas with a guide to each celebrity site that breaks down what it’s about and what it has to offer. Keep reading below to find out which site is right for you:
