Blake Lively is many things. Star of Gossip Girl, talented actress, wife of Ryan Reynolds and mother to two daughters. She is also one of the most stylish celebs at the moment and relies on daring choices and bold colours and materials to create unforgettable fashion statements. Here are just 10 of the outfits Blake has put together that we have been obsessed with ever since.
1. Velvet Suit
This ensemble could only be pulled off by Blake. Not only did she layer jackets – yes, two jackets! – to create a chic suit, she went completely topless underneath and still looked sophisticated. Originally a teal two-piece, Blake added a burgundy velvet jacket to shake things up. Amazing!
2. Red Scarf Jumpsuit
Blake was unafraid as usual to create a bold statement with this stunning red jumpsuit at the Cannes Film Festival in 2016. The softness of the lines made for easily acceptable daytime wear, as Blake has done, but the classy addition of the scarf gave it an extra oomph for a subtle transition to evening wear. Chic and practical. Also, note how Blake avoided over accessorising and let the scarf be the centre of her neckline.
3. Floral Fusion
Blake worked so many spring trends in this one outfit that of course, it is obsession-worthy. Arriving at the Time 100 Gala, Blake ensured all eyes were on her in this stunning floral, embroidered gown by Marchesa. Complete with flashy little details such as tassels and lace lining, Blake looked absolutely gorgeous and finished this daring outfit with some chunky rings.
4. Fanatical Feathers
It is almost impossible to be the stand out at such a daring fashion event as the Met Gala, but it was no problem for Blake at the 2017 event. In a gold sequined structured dress that flaunted her amazing figure, the pinnacle of Blake’s outfit was the array of beautiful bright blue feathers gathered a the bottom in a creative spin on the fishtail dress. She was channeling all kinds of a goddess!
5. ’60s Chic
Blake brought back the swinging sixties with this adorable look, by complimenting a chic mini dress with bouffant style hair and bright pink platform heels. The scallop hemline of the mini dress added even more edge and flattered her legs even more so. Take note of these style tips!
6. Queen of Cannes
There are a few of Blake’s Cannes outfits on this list, and you can see why. We are still in love with this stunning Grecian-Esque gown she wore in 2014, with its striking statement neckline and dramatic thigh slit. Blake has accessorised beautifully with a sophisticated take on plait for her hair, shimmering cuff bracelets, and matching heels.
7. Flower Bomb
Another seemingly impossible outfit to get right, this dress could easily look like a car crash of flowers. But Blake managed to pull it off perfectly, looking elegant in this red flower dress with puffed sleeves, ruffles for petals and a dramatic cleavage. Blake gave the ultra-feminine look a punky edge with studded heels and a chain strap bag.
8. Maternity Chic
Blake and Ryan have their third child on the way, but everyone knows pregnancy doesn’t stop Blake from slaying. For the premiere of her husband’s film Detective Pikachu, Blake took inspiration from the adorable little pokemon himself and wore a stunning yellow dress to flaunt her bump. She wore statement earrings and ’70s inspired curls to complete the elegant look.
9. Silver Goddess
For the – you guessed it – Cannes Film Festival, Blake wore this stunning couture Chanel gown that has to make the list for its gorgeous detail, from the cinched waist to Blake’s ethereal white shawl she wore with it.
10. Electric Blue
Showing us yet again that maternity dresses can be chic, Blake debuted her baby bump at the 2016 Cannes ceremony in an eye-catching and memorable electric blue one-shoulder gown. The tiny sequins are almost missed, but Blake ensures that all eyes are on the main attraction with subtle accessories.
