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?
“Maybe it sounds jerky, but I’m lucky to be on such a fashion-centric show. There’s no designer I don’t have access to. … What I planned [for a wedding] before I got into the business has changed. It used to be that my mom or I would make my dress. Now I’m like, ‘Hmm, I wonder what shoes Christian [Louboutin] is going to make me. and which couture house I should go to?’”
– Decisions, decisions for poor Blake Lively in Marie Claire — who, I might add, has not even officially announced she is engaged yet. Which $650 heels will you have custom-made for you? Which couture house will make your gown?! What a terrible life you and your vagina do lead. (And yes, you do sound jerky.) [Marie Claire]
Blake Lively’s March Elle cover is decidedly one of those “typical” ones — note the solid background and “traditional hand-on-hip pose” — that Glamour is now so decisively against. But regardless, the accompanying interview contains some gems of awkwardness, like her thoughts on motherhood: “I hope to have a few girls one day. If not girls, they better be trannies. Because I have some amazing shoes and bags and stories that need to be appreciated.” Read more…
