I had a weird moment of confusion here where I thought for a moment that Blake Lively was appearing at a Harry Potter-specific event, due to his logo behind her head, and I was like, “hold on, self. Wait. Blake Lively isn’t IN HPatDH:2, IS SHE? That’s….not possible. That’s…what?”
Fugger: Blake Lively
So: Boobs Legsly is looking neither Boobs nor Legsly. Discuss.
Personally, I feel like if we could just peel off all the Saran Wrap, we’d be in business.
My favorite part of this is how it looks as though part of Blake’s skirt is attached to her elbow with fishing wire, so that whenever she moves her arm, the hem of her dress pops up (I think she just swooshed that layer of frock skyward as the shutter snapped). I also enjoy how BORED everyone in the back looks, especially that downtrodden kid in the tie. Don’t worry, Downtrodden Kid. Awards season is almost over. Soon you’ll be back at the pub with the rest of us.
My other favorite part is the color. This blue is splendid on her, and she should wear it always. But I have, as Tim Gunn would say, concerns. (I’m also concerned about how I have no idea when Project Runway comes back and therefore I’m don’t know when Tim and I will be reunited.) Is this, or is this not inching toward Fancy Muumuu Territory (an unsettled land bordering Caftania to the south and BeachCover-upsville toward the west)? I applaud her for wearing something that leaves SOMETHING to the imagination (sort of), but I can’t decide if the whole look really holds together for me.
Apparently, this event was something called the Footwear News Achievement Awards, which pleases me; I had no idea all those words belonged in the same sentence.
And these are a cool achievement in footwear — although if they are Louboutins, as her occasional poses next to him might hint, then their coolness is not necessarily news because he is hotter than the sun right now. But this dress is pretty great on Blake, the kind of thing I want to try on yet also never want to touch in my life, because if I did it would look nothing like this. My beef: Would it have killed her to make the hair a little neater? I mean, maybe it’s not that bad, but if you told me she’d just gone for a jog in Central Park I’d believe it. Then again — albeit when I was very young — I once believed “gross” was spelled “groase,” so draw your own conclusions about my gullibility and/or lack of mental heft. (However, on a side note, I just noticed that if you scroll up and down over this photo, over and over again, the background starts to look like it’s 3D and moving and changing. Trippy!)
