Ah, yes, just what the Internet needs: one more myopic blonde celebrity so enamored of her perfect, precious life that she’s deluded into genuinely believing that she can help you, yes, you, you darling humble peon, attain a similar perfect, precious, curated life. (Aw, it’s so cute how you can’t even curate your own life!) Thanks, Blake Lively! What would we do without you and the new company you plan to launch, the main element of which is “about storytelling and … about living a very one-of-a-kind, curated life, and how to achieve that” — turn to GOOP for all of our life-curating needs? Heavens forbid. Curated, in this context … what does it mean? Does anyone have a GOOP dictionary on hand? Oh, no, my apologies, Blake, I recognize that “there’s nothing like it out there — it’s without a genre.” Reaaaaaal sorry about that. [via Jezebel]
So many Well Played fashion moments this week, so little time. Natalie Portman and Sarah Jessica Parker brought out the big guns for the New York City Ballet Fall Gala (someday I hope to be fancy enough to be invited to a “gala” or some sort), Eva Mendes looked radiant at Vanidades’s Icons of Style Gala, Miranda Kerr worked it the opening night of Romeo & Juliet on Broadway, and Blake Lively rocked a cool pantsuit situation at the Beauty in Wonderland event in Milan. Which star do you think was the best dressed of the week?
Blake Lively sure loves being famous, so I can’t imagine why we haven’t been seeing her out and about lately. Does Ryan Reynolds keep her locked in his basement or something? Do we have a hostage situation on our hands? Regardless, Blake’s captor let her out for the Very Important occasion of the “Turbo” premiere in New York. (Do I know what “Turbo” is, or what it is about? No. Will I deign to Google it? Also no.) I can’t always get down with Blake’s style (Serena van der Woodsen’s, on the other hand…), because she always looks like she’s trying just a little too hard to be, like, fashion-y and interesting and avant-garde, but I actually love this svelte, sexy Burberry look on her. Well done, Blakester.
Whenever I see Blake Lively I feel compelled to wail, “Blaaaaaaake!,” Amy Winehouse style (God rest her soul). Sadly, this Blake ain’t no Fielder-Civil, but I suppose she’ll do. The “Savages” actress (what a terrible, terrible movie) has maintained a curiously low profile since she wed Ryan Reynolds back in September, but she showed up on the red carpet yesterday to support her man and his co-star Emma Stone in “The Croods.” Blake does like to make a statement with the way she dresses, so I’m not surprised that she chose this fairly questionable Marios Schwab dress. With those gorgeous gams, Blake can pull off almost anything, but her mini look here is straight out of the uniform-regulation book for a super-slutty marching band. Boob windows may be kinda in right now, but this PVC breastplate is more like a one-way mirror. What do you think?
People has confirmed that Blake Lively, 25, and Ryan Reynolds, 35, were married tonight at Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. The pair have been dating quietly for almost a year, after meeting on the set of “The Green Lantern.” Mazel tov! Here’s to hoping Reynolds’ second marriage to someone 10 years younger lasts a lifetime! [People]
Tiny trucker hats are the perfect accessory for when you’re hanging with your significant other with the paparazzi, or drinking a bottle of Moet Chandon by yourself on the phone, or at a movie premiere, or getting over The Most Important Breakup Of Our Time or whatever. That’s why all the celebs love their tiny party trucker hats. Just, like, whatever you happen to be getting into at the moment. Take life by the reins and get your very own tiny party trucker hat — or 10, one in every shade — here.
It was a struggle for me to come to terms with the fact that I think Blake Lively nailed it at Monday night’s “Savages” premiere. To be honest, I find her very milquetoast, and most of her public appearances are ineffectual to me, but even so this Michael Kors pantsuit caught my eye. It also raised a few questions, like: is it even possible to pair red and black without inviting imagery of Hot Topic? Does an almost head-to-toe monochrome outfit (in a color other than black or white, naturally) ever look good on anyone, even Blake Lively? And, most importantly, why does Blake Lively look uncannily like Jennifer Aniston? Mysteries.
I’m reluctant to admit this, but facts are facts: you done good, Blake Lively. I have a few bones to pick with the overall look — like, how much better would it have been with a messy updo instead of mermaid waves, or a smoky eye and nude lip, or glossy flesh-toned nails rather than red? — but this dress is devastating, and I mean that in the best way. Of course, I’m still not going to see “Savages.” Is anyone?
