In or Out: Blake Lively in Dolce & Gabbana

Posted on November 02, 2011

Sometimes, despite our different backgrounds, both T and Lo will look at some getup and come up with the exact same reference. Sometimes, to our pleasant surprise, we do that married couple telepathy thing and both come up with the same obscure reference.

So it was with Blake’s little ensemble here.

Blake Lively in Dolce & GabbanaBlake Lively attends the Christian Louboutin Cocktail party in New York City in a Dolce & Gabbana dress paired with Christian Louboutin shoes.

Allow us to demonstrate. Our reactions, upon viewing these pics.

T: Ohmigod.

Lo: That top looks like a bathing suit —

T: — in 1984. And speaking of 1984–

Lo: — Hello, shoes. They just keep on pushing my love over the borderline.

T: Right? It’s like she’s a tragic Madonnabe walking a Jersey Shore boardwalk …

Lo: … wearing last night’s skirt and pumps over a bathing suit.


T: Wait. Is this a Halloween costume or not?


Vote Now!
IN! It’s feminine and retro, you judgmental bitches.


Voting on Joe Manganiello’s unkempt mob enforcer look is still as wide open as his legs in that shot of him sitting down. That sent you running, didn’t it, kittens?

      1984 Boardwalk Slut!

      Hell, even if I liked the outfit (which I don’t), I’d have to vote for that because it is hilarious!

      • ali meowmeow

        You know, it’s one of those things where I would be totally unsurprised if the remark for “IN” was one day “1984 BOARDWALK SLUT!”, but here, it’s definitely “1984 BOARDWALK SLUT” and it’s definitely “OUT.”

        (I’m waiting for that day, though. I’m pretty sure if someone like Chloe Moretz did it well, we’d be cheering “1984 BOARDWALK SLUT!” the same way we might shout “WERQ!”)

        … “1984 BOARDWALK SLUT”… it’s just too fun to type.

      OUT. This look like Blake’s application to be the spokeswoman for Madge and daughter’s clothing line Material Girl.  Gotta be honest, she’s better suited for that than Chanel.

      Honestly though, I like the skirt.  I agree that the shirt is a little bit swimsuit-esque, but the skirt is cute.  But shoes, hair, everything else…I don’t know, it does say a little bit “boardwalk.”

      Dolce: With Hawaii print!
      Gabbana: [smacks head] Madonna mia!
      Dolce: Si! Like Madonna would wear if it was 1984!
      Gabbana: And she was playing Esther Williams. . .
      Dolce: [overlapping] . . . wearing a slip like
      Together: Gina Lollabrigida!
      Gabbana: Shorter, of course.
      Dolce: It goes without saying.
      Gabbana: Styling will be very important. . . .

        Later, after seeing the finished product, the house gays at D & G rise up as one and say to their bosses, “NO, signori!  Questa vestita e un incubo!  A nightmare!  Gli amici di Tom & Lorenzo will say OUT!  NON DI MODA!”

        But do the capi listen?  Does the stylist listen?  Does Blake Lively listen?  No, and what a shame…….peccato.

      That’s just awful.  The top is very swimsuit and that print has a scale that is just wasted on those cuts.  The lace trim on the skirt takes it to lingerie and the whole thing looks cheap.  Which it most certainly is not.  Love the shoes though….

        I wonder if her stylist will appreciate that. 😛

    • Judy S

      Ugh. OUT. Why are her shoes too big? What’s the point of wearing insanely expensive shoes if they don’t fit? Even if she walked in and picked them out of a Louboutin bin of loaners, she ought to be able to find a pair that fit.

      • Anonymous

        You know, I used to wonder that about a lot of celebs because so many seemed to have that problem, but the more heels I wear the more I realize that in some you just *are* sliding into the toes. As far as your toes are concerned, the shoes are the right size – going one down causes intense pain. The way to fix that would be to put some kind of insert in them, but if they’re loaners she might not be allowed.

        (Or have custom-made shoes, which is one of my luxurious, I’ll-never-have-that daydreams. Like many people, I have one foot that’s slightly larger than the other, and it would be such a joy to have shoes made expressly for my 10 little piggies!)

        Re: Blake – OUT. This is terrible, beyond even her usual skin show. The Fug Girls pointed out that she was classing things up for a bit while she was dating Leo, but sadly for all of us that was temporary.

      • Anonymous

        The loaner shoes are usually size 9, because they’re usually samples, and most models being tall need the larger size. My sister worked as a stylist for a while, and says that’s all they would get, size 9. 

        • BerlinerNYC

          Thank you! Assuming your sister is right (I mean, that her stylist experience is true for the whole industry), that is actually really useful information.
          And of course by “useful,” I mean beyond trivial, but it at least it makes red-carpet photos on fashion blogs make more sense. :-)

      I’m a little disappointed in you guys for the use of the word “slut”, especially in a negative way. I love you guys, but slut-shaming is not okay. I know this is just a funny post on the internet, but this is the kind of thing that allows slut-shaming to continue. Your post is basically implying that the outfit is bad because she looks like a “slut”, and the reason she looks like that is because she looks like she’s on a walk of shame. That’s saying a lot more than you guys probably meant for it to say, so just be careful in the future about word choice. Thanks!

      Out. Awful awful awful.

    • Deitra S.

      Out – complete 1984 Boardwald Slut.  And someone get her some conditioner STAT!  Or, I don’t know…a brush.  Did she walk to the red carpet in a wind tunnel?

    • Cathy S

      Out. Even before your hilarious critique. So very out.

      I’m always confused when pretty girls like her try so damn hard. Honey, we know you’re sexy. We don’t need black lace AND snake skin AND a bustier AND bright pink. OUT. slut.

      Bathing suit was my first thought.

    • Claudia Fernandes

      Love the shoes. Hate them with the outfit

    • Julie Fountain

      Out! And I’m so ridiculously proud that I was thinking “It’s too Desperately Seeking Susan” before I read y’all’s comments!

      But I will nitpick with the other commenters. The lace? Too heavy a thread to be lingerie. More like a pillow or towel trim. Skirt? Did we even notice that ugly elastic waistband? Top? No. Just no.

      But I love the shoes. And if there ever was a right pair of shoes for this outfit, those are the ones.

      Honestly …. I kind of like it. Oh, it’s tacky as hell but somehow it works. Maybe because she’s obviously happy about it. She thinks she looks great and that always helps. I gave Joe Manganiello an Out because his look didn’t really suit him. This look here – shiny and kind of cheap looking but fun – suits her.

      OUT! My grandma owned that swimsuit.  I do covet the shoes, though.  Don’t judge me!

      Seriously trashy looking. Unless you’re at the beach.

      I kinda like it. In.

      OUT..I’m pretty sure I wore this outfit in 1984.  The floral bustier, and bustiers in general, were really hot at the time.   I remember those multicolor “python” pumps too, because I had a pair.

      1984 Boardwalk Slut all the way!

      Are Dolce & Gabbana just flipping through their old designs and re-issuing them? Is it me, or do they just put out the same bra-dress over and over again? Not that I mind too much, I would probably wear nothing but Dolce & Gabbana bra-dresses if I had the money.

      Out. Also, can these women PLEASE wear shoes that at least PRETEND to fit?

      I’m just missing the hat or big hairbow. Ah, 1984. High school graduation. Thanks for the memories, Boardwalk Slut!

      If the trim on a skirt is CROCHETED, it’s an automatic out.  Shoes are okay though.

      1984 Boardwalk Slut! I think I have the name for my next all-girl punk-rock group. Or a shop where I sell clothes just like this. Or maybe just a song. Can you hearing the pounding back beat of 1984 Boardwalk Slut?

      Out. She sure makes that expensive dress and those expensive shoes look cheap, cheap, cheap!

      Out.  It looks like what you wear under what you really wear.

    • Sorana Tarmu

      Oh Lord, no. OUT! (And glad about this. It’s beyond any explanation why she is the image of anything. Bland and boring. Slightly ugly.)

      OUT! You pegged it. I worked in Wildwood, NJ in 1984, the summer after my sophomore year of college, and this exact outfit could be seen up and down that boardwalk.

      I had this swimsuit in black in 1983. I’m just sad I never thought to pair it with a skirt like that. :(

    • Patricia Biswanger

      Having grown up not too far from the Jersey Shore, I can say, without qualification, that you nailed it.

    • kvlm

      definitely OUT!  boobs or legs, babe, boobs or legs.  (and who told her those shoes work???)

    • Amelia Logan

      Everything always looks cheap on her. At this point I would bet money that her D&G came from k-mart.

    • Alison McAfee

      the outfit is heinous, but I NEED, NEEEEED those shoes.

    • TerraBanks

      OUT. I was thinking swimsuit as soon as I saw it.

    • drdarke

      ::sigh:: Out – though I’m sure her new hubbie Ryan Douchenozzle Reynolds thinks she looks “HAWT!” in it….
