Well Played, Blake Lively


You know, I might not be a hundred percent sure about the booties, but this look works for me.

She’s just so PRETTY. And her hair is brushed, the color is great, her makeup is subtle and perfect… If she had to work  out all her weirdo exhibitionist mojo over the years to get to this place, where she looks poised and composed and lovely, then it was all worth it. Well, who am I kidding? It was worth it ANYWAY, just for the hilarity factor. In fact, hopefully Boobs Legsly isn’t PERMANENTLY retired, but I think we’re all relieved she’s taking a well-deserved nap.

    I don”t know.

    Orange dress, orange skin, it’s too matchy-matchy.

  2. Fifie

    I don’t see the pretty. She always looks one horse face away from Sarah Jessica Parker to me. Also, I’d say she may not be “Boobs” here but she’s definitely “Legsly”.

      I’m so sick of the SJP hate on here. It’s the reason I visit less than I used to.

  3. Sandra

    I like the dress a lot, but it could stand to be a few inches longer. Her hair has just been awarded space in my Hair Hall of Fame, right next to Connie Britton’s.

    • CakesOnAPlane

      …but Connie’s is still in first place right??

      Blake here looks lovely, but her nose looks different…

  4. Bella

    Dress could be a few inches longer, not a fan of the shoes, but overall, she looks good.

  5. China

    I agree about the booties, and I wish the hem were a smidge longer, but overall, I’m on board. It’s an interesting dress — I always appreciate dresses with sleeves, and the color and studs are nice design choices. Also, her hair is awesome, so I’m giving this a thumbs up.

  6. Helen

    Booties, weird at best, but that dress is spectacular on her. Love the cuff with it, too.

  7. Lynne

    I’m not sold on the shoes either but the dress is great. LOVE the color.

  8. Vandalfan

    Dress, OK for a bedazzled leather jerkin. But the footwear is total June through August.

    Fug ladies, Sorry this does not pertain to Blake. But want to weigh in on the mega-annoying popouts. I inadvertently move my mouse over the picture and out flies an annoying ad on where to buy something (typically not really even remotely) similar. BUT, as if that is not bad enough, the clothing ad is embedded in ANOTHER ad for Best Buy. Suddenly there are laptops and random dress and links to other stores all over the place. I get it you gals need to support yourselves, but me no likey. Thumbs down.

    • Sandra

      There’s an app (okay, a plug-in) for that. If you use Firefox, search “adblock plus” and grab it. I’m sure the other browsers have something similar

    My goodness she is beautiful. I love the bracelet, dress and hair. I don’t care for the booties. Her legs are to die for.

  11. Scouse Helen

    Boots: heinous. Like, proper terrible. How does Christian Louboutin get away with it? It’s the emperor’s new £700 shoes. But I like the dress and she’s pulling off the short hemline by being modest on the top deck.

    • Jules

      Agreed; they’re terrible. They look like some kind of post-surgical mesh.

  12. TaraMisu

    I like the dress but the shooties need to go.

  13. Mouse

    I can’t say I love her or her usual sartorial choices. But I am mad jealous over her body. I’d sell my soul to some underhanded deities to look that good. *sigh*

  14. McLisa

    She is rocking this dress WITH the shoes. She totally has the legs for the length.

  15. adriennebarbeaubot

    I happened to cross my eyes just a little as I looked at her legs and… Well, it looks like she’s on her toes, like she’s got Barbie feet. And now that I’ve seen it, I can’t unsee it.

  16. Jennifer

    She can basically do no wrong for me – she is gorgeous.

  17. Jules

    I usually agree; but that’s a studded leather(y) shift and macrame shooties.
    It leaves me wondering just what exactly fug is.

    • Kat

      I agree. I feel like it looks like she turned some kind of fancy Western Wear into a dress. And the mesh booties… mother of pearl. One should never have to type “mesh booties,” but here we are…

  18. Daisy

    Love the dress, but in some other photos that were taken from a more sideways angle, I was pretty sure we should be on bump watch. Or maybe she just had a large meal. Could be. Anyway, she looks a million times better than she usually does, but I have to agree on the booties, they’re terrible.

    • buttercup

      Nah, some dresses just land that way and make mountains out of molehills. I’m not sure why, but there it is. That being said, why would you wear one? When I got married, I was the lowest weight I’ve been as an adult (due to stress etc.) with a very flat tummy, and there’s a photo of me with light coming from above, and voila! Magic tummy bump. Hope no one thought it was a shotgun wedding! ;)

    Disgusting plastic vomit… ugly dress

  20. Aria

    Love everything but the shoes! She IS pretty, and I would kill for her hair and her legs.

  21. AM

    Pearl clutching here. That is not a dress. It is a cute tunic top. It needs pants, maybe leggings or at least dark tights. Because it is really short for a dress.

  22. amys

    Her booties are made from a fishing net torn from the wall of a Long John Silvers. A too short leather dress makes it really hard to sit down without showing just about everything. Guess that’s the goal?

  23. Kuri

    I really, really dislike those shoes. They remind me of some hallowe’en fake spider web shit. How much more fabulous would this look be with some gold or coppery sandals that picked up on the accents on the dress?

  24. dawn

    Love the dress. But she just doesn’t do it for me. Particularly because she always seems to have exactly the same vacuous expression on her face.

  25. VanDee

    Hmmm her nose does look different. I don’t like this. At first I thought the dress was okay bust on closure examination it looks cheap. As everybody has mentioned the shoes I’ll leave them be. She has great pins though.

  26. Emma

    The dress is just meh for me. Maybe if it was a little longer and had more shape. At the moment I’m really tired of grown women wearing teeny tiny dresses. Even a really great pair of legs like Blake’s do not a style statement make.

  27. buttercup

    Since this dress haunted my thoughts before going to bed last night (I need a life, I KNOW!), I had to come here and say that I have no idea why she chose this color. Maybe it translates differently in real life, but wan summer tomato is not something I would go for, especially with her coloring.

  28. Lily1214

    She looks great. I’ve always liked her. Except for the booties. Forget the booties.
