  • Is that a TV screen on her chest?

    I’m not thinking it is a flat screen.

    • headhunter2


    • Funkykatt

      Must be a hassle to wash.

      • annrr

        a little Windex should do it 😉

    • JosephLamour

      guys, don’t you mean The Croods? Odd names and bad outfits (I can’t with her) the preview for that movie looks A. MAZE.

    • Teletubby realness

    • Anathema_Device

       It does have a PeeWee’s Playhouse Magic Screen vibe to it.

      • zenobar

        Mekka-lekka-hi, mekka-hiney-ho!  Mekka-lekka-hi, mekka-chawney-ho!

    • Angela_the_Librarian

       Giant raspberry fruit roll-up (okay, maybe I’m ready for lunch)

      • EveEve

        With giant marshmallows extruding out of her sleeves at the elbows!

    • barbarienne

       I think if you pop open that panel, you can reprogram her and stop the alien invasion. I’m sure she’s Macintosh-compatible, right?

      • EveEve

        Can it reprogram her hair? Puh-leeze?

        • barbarienne

           It’s a Macintosh, not the Architect of the Matrix. Some things cannot be fixed!

    • H2olovngrl

      Splatter shield. I could use one of those on every top I own. I am notorious for dropping food on my breasts.

    • AmeliaEve

       She’s a Tele-Tittie!

    • Easy clean up bib for when you dribble food

    • zuzu

       Looks like you stick the airbill in there and drop her off at FedEx for overnight shipping.

    • lilazander

       I say it’s a solar panel.

    • drdarke

      I love a dress that comes with its own built-in lobster bib!

  • Well, it certainly is appropriate for a cartoon premiere.  But what an odd dress indeed.

    • I’m thinking if they replace the front plasma shield with the white from the hem and the sleeves?

      • Plasma shield indeed!  It does look like a reject costume form a Sci Fi film.

        • But I do like the design and fit of the dress. If they didn’t have the built in bib, it would look so much better.

          • It sure looks like it can’t be very comfortable.  “I know!  Let’s encase the girls in plastic!, That’ll be great!”

          • Anathema_Device

             I do spill a lot, so I can see the practical benefits of a built-in bib. Although, I’d want it to also be a pocket so I could just stash the leftovers for later.

          •  You just press a button on the sleeve and the whole carapace opens to reveal a storage unit, with freezer.

          • Anathema_Device

             Heee. Blake Lively: Living Better though Technology!!

          •  You guys just made my Monday morning! 🙂 Thanks!

          • EveEve

            M’kay, so maybe she can keep a hairbrush and mirror in there?

          • H2olovngrl

            Ugh, Major Chest Perspiration!

      • It would look like a bib instead of a plasma shield, still, an improvement for sure.

      • Anathema_Device

         I think white in place of the plastic would take this to Bavarian beer-wench territory. If it *needs* a bib, I’d go for the same color/fabric, but with a texture or tone-on-tone pattern and use that in the hem, too. Or even a matching chiffon inset. The white is AWFUL.

        • So true about the white….. what about a fine smocked wool in the same color? As long as it isn’t lace.

          • RebeccaKW

             Yes, it looks like her slip is showing.  And then whatever the hell is happening at the elbows.

        • lobsterlen

           I wonder if the dress would have worked better with insert being regular leather instead of shinny patent leather. Same color.

          • Anathema_Device

             Oooh, now you’re talking. Even a textured leather would be good. Whew. So glad we all fixed this. Now I can get some shit done! 😉

    • Introspective

      kiltd, i appreciate your being so nice as to just call this dress “odd.” i on the the other hand prefer the straightforward terminology “ugly.”

      dear blake, 

      really. its stylist time. now.

      love, introspective and the rest of the BKs.

      •  Now that we’re into it, I really wish she had gone the whole route and done seriously polished hair to go with the sharp lines and contours of the dress.  She also looks a little stoned.

        • Janet B

          This. Her hair, makeup and shoes are just too bland for this odd/ugly/weird dress.

          • drdarke

            Is that a corset underneath the plastic splashguard…?

            @kiltdntiltd:disqus ‘s got it – she needs to go with the aesthetic of the dress, which is “Bad Science Fiction Costume”.

      • lobsterlen

         Didn’t Blake proudly proclaim she didn’t have a stylist?

        • Melizmatic

           It shows.

    • CPK1

      Maybe the cartoon thingy is what she was aiming for. She really shouldn’t have bothered. I like the coat and the color of the dress but that is it. Oh and it would all look better on someone else.

    • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

       I thought it was her battery cover. She never seems quite ‘real’ to me, as an actress, person, anything.

  • Beardslee

    A coat and sleeves!  Apparently it doesn’t take much to make me happy.

  • Deb Oswald

    The Croods ?  The Drooks?  what?  that is a “different” dress!

  • Diego!

    It’s odd but I like. I hate those shoes. She should have sticked to the runway boots?

    • 3boysful

       I know!  I was wondering why no one had commented on them yet.  Awful.  As is the dress.  And the yoga hair.

      I do like the coat and clutch.

  • AnnaleighBelle

    Shiny, plastic, pointy boobs.  Interesting.

    • ChiliP

      That’s a perfect description for both the dress and her (rumored) implants.

    • MikeW_Vegas

      Gives new meaning to the “short, tight and shiny” looks favored by Ms. Klum. 

  • lobsterlen

    Is Blake Lively trying to out nipple dart Anne Hathaway? Let the pointiest nipple dart win! 

  • I’m glad she had a coat – I do so worry about these girls. The dress is a bit Star Trek Bierkeller.

  • Patent leather boobs?! No…just no….

  • FEMBOT!!!!

  • Anathema_Device

    Oooh, no. I do like the coat very much, and I was intrigued by the dress when it was under the coat. Now all I can think is “PUT THE COAT BACK ON! PUT IT ON! NOT NOW, RIGHT NOW!”

    The panel in front looks like it should have little charms floating in it to entertain toddlers during meal time.

    I’m taking the white* shoes personally.

    *I accidentally typed “shite” shoes. Should have let that stand, really.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Girl, that is NOBODY’S dress!

  • The elbow tumors are weird.

  • Laurie Bergman

    I wonder if she tucked a rear projection screen into that beautiful coat. I do like the articulated elbow of the dress.

  • sometimes when something is particularly hiddy, i think you white board it on purpose so the kittens can slash and burn…looking forward to your Walking Dead review!

    • MilaXX

       for more slashing and burning, because last night? The stupid burned really bad.

  • I think T & Lo are have given up on Mrs Lively! Sending her to the Whiteboard is just the last straw! 

  • Star Trek Ensign Lively reporting for duty! 

  • Sadly, married life and lack of acting jobs has lead Blake to a massive drinking problem.  (
    Having learned their lesson, via the Lohan, fashion houses will now only lend clothes to Blake that have been spill proofed.

  • Sara__B

    A dress with a built-in wipe-off bib will never be a good idea, even though it fits beautifully and showcases her killer legs.

  • kattyatlaw

    I appreciate the coat. It’s gorgeous. Otherwise, why is she dressed like Daphne from Scooby Doo?

  • mmc2315

    It’s all the worse with the reflections bouncing off that thing.  Interesting dress, that’s for sure.  Cracking up at the Star Trek comments.

  • Imasewsure

    Wow boring and hideous! 

  • plastic boob bib…just can’t…agh!

  • MilaXX

    Damn that’s an ugly dress and Blake brings nothing to the table in terms of making it work.  Give this to Roomey Mara so it can  be given the edge it needs.

    • mmc2315

      In the day, Grace Jones.

  • EEKstl

    For the second time today I’m writing the word ‘ridiculous’ in response to a Blake Lively post. I do not anticipate a conclusion to this trend until the woman gets herself some gays. To paraphrase The Bard: To a Stylist Go!

  • insertclevername_ici


  • alyce1213

    This is the fashionworst Monday morning I can remember in a long time.  The coat’s okay, but I’m laughing and shaking my head at the plastic bib.  She’s decades too old for that.

    Please give us some pretty.

    • poggi

      Actually that is a practical point in favor of the dress.  You could eat pasta with sauce or a salad at lunch, wipe away any drips, and go back to work clean. 

  • Betcha her cleavage is sweaty rank.

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      “Sweaty Rank Cleavage” – what a cool name for a band.

    •  I thought that for a moment too, but since it was apparently cool enough for a coat, maybe it’s not SO warm that she’d get… “sweaty rank cleavage” (though I’m sure it kinds holds the heat in…).

  • decormaven

    The only legitimate reason for that plastic insert in the bodice is to serve as a display for advertising messages. Just think of the collateral money stars could earn by getting their photos snapped with multiple sponsors beaming their ads on that thing! Don’t laugh- we’re getting dangerously close to such an approach.

  • I like the dress. The seaming of the bodice is nice and I like the patent leather — maybe not on a normal person, but on a celebrity it’s cool. I like the shoes, too. SO THERE.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    do you think she has an assistant that comes by with Windex from time to time and wipes that down for her??

  • My first thought was that she looks like she has a windshield. Pretty color on her though.

  • PeggyOC

    That’s a look you’ve got to commit to fully, and she’s not.  If you’re going to go “fembot” and wear plastic on your chest, you can’t do soft yoga hair and gentle makeup.  Take this off, Blake, and send it to Rooney Mara.

  • eowyn_of_rohan

    If I were her I would have insisted on it being a blue panel and having tiny fish embroidered onto it so you had a fishtank on your boobs.

    • alyce1213

      Now that would have been interesting, at least.

    • l_c_ann

      Or a real albeit thin fish tank with real guppies

  • elleg929

    For the love, GET A STYLIST!

  • trisker

    What a strange mess of an outfit!  WHITE shoes? and the dress has all this weird stuff: white hem? white elbow doo-dads. snaps down the sides of the skirt? or are they brads?  and the BKs have had me laughing out loud while I read the comments about the sneezeguard/plasma screen.  She’s SUCH a beautiful young woman!  Why?????

  • Kate4queen

    Teletubby anyone?

  • GorgeousThings

    Shades of Barbarella

    • Melizmatic

       Great minds.

    • Annabelle Archer

      Yet short of enough.

  • Indigo54


  • snarkykitten


  • It’s window into her soul! Oh wait, no–it’s a window into her boobs. 

  • leave_Blake_alone

    This is kind of awesome. The coat appears as though it may be fantastic, but I wish we could see more pictures of it.

  • MarissaLG

    Love the coat, HATE the dress. 

  • Trisha26

    I wish she’d just buttoned the coat and called it a day. Then again that Plexiglass bodice would still have been visible.

  • Jennifer Coleman

    Hello, Maroon Teletubby.

    • suzq

      Tinky Winky, complete with magic purse.

  • kaycem

    it almost looks better with the coat, but even though the plastic chest plate is weird, it all fits her like a dream and i kind of like its quirkiness.  her accessorizing and hair need work, though.

  • It’s an interesting dress, but it’s spoiled by the poor styling. I hate the white shoes, and the clutch is all wrong. And while I appreciate a girl wearing a coat when it’s weather appropriate, it does nothing for the look. 

    Also, her hair? REALLY? Come the F on.

    • Janet B

      Maybe the clutch goes with the collar of her coat? 

  • judybrowni

    Well, if it rains, her tits will stay dry.

  • Sorry, but I can’t say a bad word about Marios Schwab. Can’t say the same for Blake though…

  • filmcricket

    Way to ruin all the space age funkiness of the dress with those white shoes and terrible hair, Blake. Sigh. I get that designers probably love having their art on that fabulous canvas, but she continually fucks up the presentation.

    That first picture is the illustration for Cake’s single “Short Skirt, Long Jacket” btw.

  • Alyssa

    All I see is a boob shield!

  • marilyn

    She should have kept her coat on.

    • conniemd

      This. Looked good with the coat as I couldn’t see what that design thingy on her chest was, so I couldn’t form a negative opinion on it.

  • IMNAngryLiberal

    Did Anna Wintour stop dressing Blake when she 1) got married OR 2) her show ended?

  • poggi

    She really needs some better accessories–maybe bigger earrings, bracelets, or some windshield wiper.

  • libraangel

    Guess Blake still didn’t hire a stylist,eh? Model’s  expression – precious (sarcasm)

  • ankali

    I’ll give her this. The vinyl on her chest is odd, but: the dress looks good on her, I love the coat, the hair is only mildly tragic for once, and I can ignore the shoes.

  • muelonil

    I am forever getting food on my top, so one with a built-in wipeable bib would be genius. But something tells me Mrs. Reynold doesn’t really have that problem.  Maybe she reads TLo and took the “whiteboard” concept a little too literally and just wore one.  So..uh..I’ll stick with my original reaction of “out.” 

    • random_poster

      There you go. Where are the dry erase markers?

  • librarygrrl64

    Gotta say, I don’t absolutely hate the dress. But, because of the futuristic vibe, I think it would have looked better with knee-height boots. Which also would have looked better with the coat. Full disclosure, though: I hate white shoes unless they’re sneakers. Hair and jewelry are meh.

  • cowper

    I’m wondering: “Why does she have one of those plastic bags that you keep school supplies in affixed to her chest?” It just needs to have that tab with the three holes across the top of it. And she needs to be carrying a Trapper Keeper with a picture of kittens on it.

  • lizlemonglasses

    Coming soon to a TV near you, it’s BoobVision! 21st century, what’ll you come up with next?

  • frannyprof

    I was not aware that Ms. Lively has a drooling disorder.

  • stubbornthoughts

    Plastic ruins everything.

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    If the plastic bib becomes a fashion thing then I will finally be able to eat in public.

  • maggiemaybe

    Huh. There appears to be a plastic bib attached to her dress, much like the one my son used to sport when he was an infant and had trouble finding his mouth with his wee plastic spoon.

  • Melizmatic

    Blake, serving you ‘throwback to Barbarella realness’;

    Um… I’ll pass, thanks.

  • Kristy Evans

    LOL WUT? No.

  • I actually don’t mind the bib. It’s a cute little sci-fi dress. I don’t think the coat goes with it at all (even though I am coveting it) and her hair…did she just roll out of bed and put it in a pony tail?

  • crow girl

    Against all reason, I kind of love it.

  • Ok cranky moment:  I know nothing about this woman that I don’t see on either TLo or the Fug Girls site, but why do so many pictures make her look like her spa day is running five minutes late and EVERYTHING is RUINED FOREVER?!   So weary and put upon – should I make her some tea?

  • 4JJ

    Great coat, horrible dress, shoes don’t go with either.

  • PeaceBang

    What!? The plastic boob shield is fashion, I suppose. *sniff* But white pumps? Girl, are you from Akron? 

  • Ediths_Head

    Dress appears to be worn over nightie. With vinyl couch arm cover tucked into bodice. The coat is beautiful, though.

  • There’s a windshield over her tits!  Hate this dress.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    Plastic bib, white shoes, a winter coat with random crap on the collar… Yeah, no. None of these things go with each other. She looks like a six-year-old who picked her own outfit while her mom was too busy to help.

  • allj

    I just. I can’t. No no no no no no no.

  • cmb92191

    Looks like something that the lead singer of Missing Persons would have worn.   Google up “Words” video.. and tell me I’m not right! There’s a fabulous video from 1981.. .that just screams this dress.

    • Igor Buarque

      this video: . It seems the dress was inspired on it.

  • guest2visits

    No. All she needs is a goldfish for her fish tank.   The coat on the other hand.. beautiful!

  • I like what she did with the shoes…

  • libraangel

    Er, why is her, er “panel” have red stuff showing underneath whereas the runway one does not? And also, is her um “panel” (don’t know what else to call it!) there because she will get dental x-rays later?

  • Ms. Olivina

    Eh, I like it better on the model. You need a B cup or less to properly rock a dress like this one.

  • Hideous.

  • LilyPad

    The plasticy looking thing totally ruins this look for me…the maroon color looks great on her, and that is a really beautiful coat. I like the white accessories, too. That shiny thing and the way it sits so high on her decolletage? Just plain weird. 

  • bd73

    i don’t think a windshield on the chest makes any sense. should have replaced that with a fabric panel of some sort. nice color though.

  • Louise Bryan

    You forgot your pants
    There’s a mirror on your chest
    Go home and try again

  • bingo

    well, it certainly desexualizes her boobs, for me at least.  I do think plum is a flattering color for blonds with some melanin, though.

  • SophieCollier

    WELP.  It’s a look.  


    That is a gorgeous color and really good on her but that plastic bib is awful…..

  • Therese Bohn

    Hey! I can see myself in…your…uh…

  • Very sci-fi…. um…. hmm. well. Very purple or is that more a maroon? Well, very nice. I double checked that what looked like a slip hanging below was actually intended by Marios Schwab, which it seems it was…. which is good, but it still comes across, to me anyway, as something thrown under because you felt your skirt was a tad short. Overall, it’s just … well, it’s odd. In a sci-fi kind of way – ok. I don’t get the plastic bib per say… I mean, I get it, but I don’t, you know? I gotta move on. 😀

  • kathrineb

    This so wrong in so many ways.

  • Without that shiny bit, this is actually a really cute and totally appropriate dress. I think she looks great otherwise.

  • berkeleygirl

    I can barely see the outfit for the size of the silhouette of the ring on her left hand.  Ryan Reynolds was very, very good to her.

  • poor blake forgot her makeup artist.  why are her boobs covered in that plastic you use to keep furniture clean?  and white shoes? WHITE SHOES?  no.

  • Yuval Dinoor

    She’s a Teletubbie!

  • Carly Warnock

    That is majorly unflattering. She’s also aging weirdly… her eyes seem to be getting smaller or is that just the make up?
