Blake Lively in Roland Mouret

Posted on March 28, 2013

Miss Blake once again demonstrates why good taste is no substitute for a stylist. Not that we’d ever accuse the dear of having an abundance of good taste.

 

Blake Lively attends the opening of Target at Shoppers World Danforth in Toronto in a Roland Mouret dress paired with Christian Louboutin pumps.

Roland Mouret Resort 2013 Collection/Model: Jennifer Messelier

Christian Louboutin ‘Sissi’ Pump

But to be fair, that dress is really cute. It looks a skosh too tight on her and that yoke thing is a little weird, but this suits her and the colors look pretty on her, even if Roland Mouret is a bit much for a Target. The shoes are also really cute, but – and this is where a stylist needed to come in – they don’t really work with each other. If anything, they’re fighting each other, and the result is that two very cute pieces look considerably less cute together. Tsk.

Maybe she’s just upset and distracted because Ryan didn’t get her a Whopper.

      This is a dress I almost want to like but can’t . The print is just used in such a weird way. The top makes her look like someone splashed orange splotches on her boobs and way not print on the front of the skirt? Those shoes simply don’t go.

      • Jacqueline Wessel

        Yeah, that butterfly boob thing is distracting…what shoes.

        • conniemd

          Is it a butterfly. I thought it looked like a cat with the orange blobs being its paws. Anyway If I was there seeing that dress I’d spend all my time staring at the boobs trying to figure out what was on them. Maybe that’s the point??

      • tereliz

        My sentiments exactly! I’d love the shoes with a simple white eyelet dress (oh, or a white eyelet skirt with a colorful, graphic tee for a more casual yet funky look), but they’re too sweet to ground a dress this edgy, and fight for attention with the weirdness of the print on the dress. I like the idea of pairing these shoes with another pattern, but not this one.

        • MilaXX

          I think the dress would work with any pastel. I think they are too focus pulling to pair with prints

          • tereliz

            Yeah, pastel shoes would be a great match with this dress!

            If I’d had access to whatever shoes I wanted, I’d probably lean toward the orange-gold Dior pumps that Marion Cotillard wore with that orange dress to the Globes. They’re striking without being too focus pulling and have a great shape that echoes the architectural detailing in the dress.

            • MilaXX

              I was actually thinking the shoes would pair better with a pastel colored dress. Greens/blues with little to no print to fight against

            • tereliz

              Gotcha! They are definitely the kind of shoe you need to start with and build an outfit around. Let them do all the heavy lifting. Green would be great for spring.

    • kmk05

      THE HILLS HAVE EYES. Or this is a depiction of Sauron’s mother.

      When are those shoes ever a good idea. They look like a kid project! And the dress is too tight, which just make it look like she’s trying too hard.

      • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

        I’m seeing Animal from the Muppets. Or possibly the Mnuh mnuh muppet.

    • alyce1213

      I love a pretty painted dress and the style suits her well. Unfortunately, the ill-placed blotches that look like strange, closely-set orange eyes just ruin it.

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      No. That dress is bugging me to no end, a total Rorschach. I kinda sorta see a kitty in the boob area, a kitty with a flaming stick in it’s mouth. And there’s an angry face on her pelvis. This dress + Those shoes = Total fail.

      • http://onebluetree.blogspot.com/ Sara L.

        Yup, a kitty for sure. A kitty wearing sunglasses, for me.

      • jetpackdino

        I’m seeing lobster claws that are pinching her chest.

      • SugarSnap108

        At first glance, I saw an owl on her crotch. Angry face works, too. And yes, absolutely see a kitty with a flaming stick.

    • Jecca2244

      waitttt, I’m more impressed that target paid big money for these celebs to show up at target. People are going to go to Target regardless of celebs. Weird.

    • Sobaika

      I like the dress on the model but something about Blake in it is ruining it. Killer shoes.

      • wisdomy

        Because it’s too tight, making her look like her boobs are cross-eyed.

      • Tatiana Luján

        This is the girl that can make Channel look tacky.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1208138556 Sara Munoz Munoz

        That is usually the case!

    • mightbewrong

      Ugh, for some reason the print is just viscerally repulsive to me.

    • Apocalipstick Now Redux

      Blake Lively is so completely bland. I can never remember who she is or why she’s supposed to be famous. When I see her I always think “Who is that poor-man’s Susan Anton?”

      ETA: That print makes it looks like her nipples are black holes that are sucking you in.

      • Imasewsure

        Susan Anton reference! YES!

      • Airkisses

        She’s pretty much The Most Generic Blond Ever, isn’t she?

    • http://twitter.com/CaitrinofFenris Caitrin

      The print on the top is just weird. Reminds me of a top I bought when I was 16 that had a weird print on it with little mirrors and my dad made me take it back because of the placement of the print and the mirrors – they weren’t directly over my boobs but they certainly drew attraction to them – and not in a good way. That dress kind of does the same thing. “Oh! Your chest… oh. Yellow yuck. sigh.”

      That shirt I got was an ugly shirt. I sure pitched a fit but he made me take it back. Thanks dad. :)

      • gabbilevy

        She looks set her boobs down in a puddle of oil and balsamic.

        Those shoes though… apparently nobody knows how to pair them, because fashionista Kerry Washington struggled, too.

        • http://twitter.com/kerryev kerryev

          Someone should try them with pants.

          • tereliz

            For real life, I would pair a floral beaded pump like this with cropped navy trousers (with a crisp front crease pressed in, and a little bit of a cuff) with a light colored peplum top. Wouldn’t be a ground-breaking red-carpet look or anything, but I’d be good to go from the office to happy hour with a simple change of my jacket.

            For some reason, I can’t escape the idea of wearing something eyelet with these shoes. Maybe because they’re both so sweet!

        • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

          I’m an old fashioned girl. I want to see those shoes with a great pair of jeans and a white shirt. I like them, I like busy shoes, but I like busy shoes paired to accentuate simple clothing.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000905542323 Rhonda Shore

        Gotta love dads! Mine was really anti-overalls…and he was right!

    • jorinde

      but she got a whopper – she spilled the whole sauce on her dress, see?

    • Sweetvegan

      The 2 tie-dye splotches on her breasts are really annoying

      • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

        All I kept seeing, till we got to those amazing shoes.

      • flamingoNW

        Yup. I’d like the dress if it weren’t for that.

      • Catherine Katz

        Yep. That was it.

    • Indigo54

      Can’t imagine why anyone would wanna walk around with two half asleep owl’s eyes covering their boobies. Not a very wise decision. Love those shoes tho.

      • Lori

        The eyes on her boobs are bad, but I think the face on her crotch is worse. It has a mustache and weird eyebrows and everything. That’s just wrong. IOW, I can’t agree with the uncles about this dress being cute. It’s just wrong. She should have ditched it in favor of something that actually went with the shoes.

        • pattyw

          How did I miss the crotch face? It’s like Ed Asner.

          • MoHub

            Actually, I’m seeing Groucho doing his version of “Kilroy was here.

          • Wendi126

            I see a super Mario brother

          • Indigo54

            Am I the only one who sees an Angry Bird on the skirt? No really, it’s there. Right between the first and second crotch arrows. Look. Am I right?

        • poggi

          I did not see that but now I can’t see anything else.

      • In_Stitches

        What? You don’t want hooters on your hooters? I suppose it’s a bit on the nose…

    • Indigo54

      I just love a print that points the way to my crotch. I forget where I put it sometimes.

      • http://twitter.com/kendallbrunson SassyMcFrench

        Yes. It’s always helpful to have arrows down there with large splotches on your chest (just in case you also forgot you had those).

      • Celandine1

        Brace yourself, the crotch prints are now mainstream. Got a Target ad this week and they are selling skirts with crotch prints.

    • http://twitter.com/MajorBedhead MajorBedhead

      No, no, no, you guys. She’s promoting her new movie “The Boobs Have Eyes.” Which went straight to video and is being sold at Target.

      • http://twitter.com/herong Heron

        AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH #cantunsee

      • fashionzombie

        It looks like she drank Kool-Aid and then started lactating.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QFW22QV426LUOEPGASPZJWJMDE MishaFoomin

        Eyes? I thought they were weeping and festering stab wounds. Maybe what one sees depends on one’s mood.

      • Kathleen Shicks

        Or the outline of a cat is throwing up all over her chest. That was my first thought.

        • FloridaLlamaLover

          Yes! I thought “That’s an orange cat wearing skinny shades on her chest.”

      • aeb1986

        hahahaha. so funny

      • Vlasta Bubinka

        I was wondering why and how her nipples got pink eye. Now, as we’ve learned from South Park, don’t let her have worstershire sauce! She’ll turn into a murderous zombie.

      • unbornfawn

        I thought her boobs were leaking mustard.

      • VicD

        I was not aware that Rorschach made clothes

      • drdarke

        No, no, no, @twitter-15514692:disqus – she’s sporting the new “Hooters Goes Avant-Garde” uniform!

    • hmariec19

      I think the problem here is that Blake needed to go up a size. The chest-region is stretching, making that sheer part look like a t-shirt . It looks more structural on the model.

      Also, the boob-eyes.

      • http://www.djplaw.com/ Tadiana

        No! Blake wore something too tight?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000905542323 Rhonda Shore

      i’d vote this out, but this one wasn’t put to a vote.

    • NDC_IPCentral

      Orange eyes at a crucial pectoral location and a crazy face at a crucial lady-organs location. LOCATION., LOCATION, LOCATION. This dress belongs on the re-work table, not on a female (or male) body.

      Annabelle Archer, your Rorschach comparison is right on the money.

      The beaded crewel-work design shoes cost, I’m sure, more than a lot of us make in quite a bit of billing time, but they are still shuffling around trying to find the proper garment pairing. LOCATION….

    • http://www.facebook.com/thepurtleofallpurtles Stephanie Purtle

      the two yellow dots on the boobs look weird. otherwise pretty

    • http://twitter.com/Mlle_D Donyelle

      The mirror image of The Joker’s mouth is annoying me!

    • Trisha26

      I don’t like the dress at all – orange “boob eyes” and the slight v-shapes in the “V” area – YIKES! The shoes are awful – another craft project.

    • jessica walsh

      This dress makes it look like she’s lactating tomato soup.

    • amaranth16

      Inkblot crossed-eyes vagina nonsense. Try again, please.

    • http://www.twitter.com/anneofnogables AnneNotHathaway

      She could be wearing a sack, an HBC-esque fascinator, and a giant dollar-sign diamond necklace, and I’d still like this because those shoes are so stunning.

    • Tatiana Luján

      That dress goes with her image and, for once, she doen’t look vulgar and her clothes don’t look tacky.
      i don’t know if a stylist told her what to wear, but this seems more like her choice than some dresses she’s worn.

    • http://twitter.com/irmaladuce_l8ly IrmaLaDuce

      Looks like her nipples are wearing sun glasses.

    • Donna Tabor

      She has headlights! On her, er, headlights.

    • http://twitter.com/KathrynTewson Kathryn Tewson

      She looks like her nipples are suppurating.

    • Nicholas

      That lactation looks like something that should be on House MD, not the red carpet.

    • PeggyOC

      Aaarrgh! Nipple spots that make her chest look like the Corinthian. I can’t unsee that.

    • eowyn_of_rohan

      Coming soon, Blake Lively in the new horror movie “The Tits Have Eyes.”

      • susan6

        Exactly…..my first reaction to the picture was “The Boobs Have Eyes.”

        My second reaction was “the designer is obviously joking, what with the positioning of those spots and especially the stripey v-shaped features. “This way to the V.” Uh, thanks for the hint.

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      I love the dress on the model, but on Blake, it’s too tight, therefore drawing WAY too much attention to the … eyes… on her boobs. Just weird. Love the shoes, too, but not with this dress.

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      Also… there’s a red carpet for the opening of a Target? WTH?

      • Lori

        I honestly don’t get that either. It was a BFD when Target opened a store in DC (right across from a Metro station and everything), and there was no red carpet there. What’s so special about this store?

        • MilaXX

          first one in Canada

          • Lori

            So now that Canada has Target does that mean we can have more Tim Horton locations? The closest one to me is over an hour away.

    • http://twitter.com/switchGirl Alison Lewis

      It doesn’t fit exactly right, but it’s cute. A cool clutch could bring this outfit together and make the shoes work.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/37TPKASIMXVUPYK5BNQFOL43KU Carina

      It just looks like her boobs are really, really angry.

      I still think that Whopper was for her… interesting dress, interesting shoes, nothing hair – and agreed that a more “real life” outfit would have been more appropriate for Target… How about Missoni for Target… Jason Wu for Target!!

        That’s it! I couldn’t put my finger on what that dress reminded me of. It isn’t good.

      • poggi

        I thought moth too. Yes, now Blake can close her eyes and dream of Whoppers or Ryan with a manly voice or Gossip Lady or whatever, and predators won’t eat her because her boob eyes are still on alert.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=677547537 John Hodgins

      It looks like Angry Birds or Angry …well, something else I won’t mention.

    • Carly Warnock

      Her make-up is a bit wonky here. Agreed on the dress and shoes…. I’m partial to the shoes though.

    • C Silberman

      That crotch face looks kinda like a Goomba.

    • Alexandra Simons

      That crotch looks angry!

    • l_c_ann

      Poor little rich girl has no idea what size dress she should be wearing.

      The splotches look like a melting pair of sunglasses hanging around her neck.

    • elemspbee

      The dress fit and shoes are inoffensive. it’s the damn hair that is.

      She should eat with a bib, because she has egg yolks on her boobs.

      I don’t like that bodice at all. I keep getting distracted by whether I think the sunglasses of a passerby got smushed up on her front or a moth went splat there. It’s all very car accident/hit and run/unpleasant.

    • Monabel

      How can you think that dress is cute?

    • Qitkat

      I see a kitty face too. Awwww. Not this time.

        When I was teaching a colleague who taught first grade leaned over the fish tank one day with disastrous results. Kind of like this dress.

    • Pennymac

      Love those shoes! Does the dress remind anyone else of the Shroud of Turin across the boobs?

    • AnnaleighBelle

      Love the shoes. Don’t understand the boob glasses.

    • siriuslover

      Sorry, I can’t get behind barfing boobs. It’s a cute dress if you take away that barf boobs and the vajayjay arrows. I’ll give you the shoes, though.

      Reminds me, unfortunately, of my first attempt to go out after my baby was born. I was breastfeeding…. and leaked.

    • Nonmercisansfacon

      I’m sorry but why would a designer think women (any woman) would like to have Sauron’s eyes right in the middle of their chest? Are there any murdering hobbitses running around we need to scare away from our breasts?

    • disqus_sZRDWtvvVD

      Just not loving the tea stains on her chest.

    • DesertDweller79

      The print over the boobs is icky. And I hate the vagina arrows. But, without those flaws in the print, I like it. Shape and color are nice.

      Hate the shoes. They look like a craft project to me. I hate it when it looks like I could make them with some beads and a glue gun.

    • guest2visits

      Agree completely about the shoes. The top for this is a mistake no matter who wears it. Those splotches are just not
      placed well – there needs to be more or they need to be replaced with the inky patterns on the skirt portion.

    • PeaceBang
