Blake Lively in Burberry Prorsum at the “Turbo” Premiere

Posted on July 10, 2013

Blake looks like she spent all day color-coding TPS report covers and just exited the office ladies’ room after having changed her skirt for a much-needed night out dancing.


Blake lively attends the premire of “Turbo” in New York City in Burberry Prorsum.

Burberry Prorsum Resort 2014 Collection

Of course, how exactly she’s going to dance while wearing a bath mat remains to be seen. What does NOT remain to be seen are her boob sconces.

Oh, honey. This one’s a disaster. Go home and try again. And let’s leave the sensible sweaters on the hanger next time, hmm? It’s a red carpet, sweetie. Not a business meeting.

It’s a shame, because we kinda like all these pieces, but the look on a whole is simply not red-carpet ready.

    Is she at the beach or what?

    • If she is, she has been collecting beach glass and hot gluing it to her skirt.

      • Monzerrat Ontiveros

        LOL, I hate hate her hair!

        • Lets face it, the whole look is WAY too casual for a premiere.

    • Blake sells seashells by the Burberry-Shore.

  • I know! Don’t you want to see candle holders attached? With bobeches, of course.

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      Yes!! Then, let’s get that tissue sweater in pink, toss it over the whole thing and get some mood lighting going on.

      • I think we’re on to something here.

        • decormaven

          Genius! You two just keep collaborating. It sounds wonderful!

    • alyce1213

      Love bobeches! I have a little collection. It’s also one of my favorite words to say.
      And what a funny concept here.

  • Jessica Freeman

    This looks so cheap. I hate when the front beading doesn’t go around the back. And let’s be honest, that top is made of tissue paper, not fabric.

    • MoHub

      As much as I hated the over-embellished skirt, I could only hate it more after I saw that the embellishment didn’t make it to the back. It looks as if the designer ran out of geegaws and forgot to tell Blake not to turn around whatever happened.

      • SRQkitten

        Yes, seeing that the embellishments only went half the way round really did make it look cheap and half-assed.

        • gabbilevy

          … or no-assed, really.

        • Rhonda Shore

          And the shirt tucked in makes it even more hideous. Everything is wrong here. And she just might realize it – she doesn’t look happy in these pictures.

        • decormaven

          Looks like something in the Macy’s bargain bin or trampled in the dressing room at Nordstrom’s Rack.

      • SugarSnap108

        YES. The fact that the crafty cray-cray stops halfway around makes it so much worse.

      • Little_Olive

        Maybe it’s so that they don’t hurt when you sit down?

        (Then don’t make it, mister designer)

    • I understand that its mostly for matters of comfort and wearability, that they do that occasionally. However, if the embellishments you want are that extreme, maybe you should rethink the whole notion.

    • SephSki

      I agree. It looks like it’s some discount fashion knock-off that’s affordable because only half of it is finished. It looks really stupid from any direction but head-on too.

    • lobsterlen

      Imagine if the polished beach glass went around the entire skirt at the end of the evening when you take it off it would like you had chicken pox ass.

      • kimmeister

        You would probably also leave tiny shards of glass all over any seats you used.

      • makeityourself

        Chick pox ass. Boob sconces. Okay, that’s all I can handle today. Thank you.

    • TLJezebel

      You’re right. The skirt would be so much better completely beaded.

  • Annarosa

    agreed. dislike the invisible shoes. dislike the unflattering skirt. dislike the bra. dislike the invisible make up. dislike the air. WTF.

  • In_Stitches

    Maybe a white oxford on top? Not sure what to go for with the shoes…I feel like pumps in one of the colors from the skirt would be a little too on the nose. Maybe in plum?

  • Alison McAfee

    to be fair, that skirt is amazing. just not for a premiere.

    • eowyn_of_rohan

      This is her husband’s movie, right? Maybe she’s really not sure how to dress as a +1 instead of the focus of attention.

  • I’m digging the skirt, but Ms Lively is looking no so Lively.

  • Nothing says kid’s movie premier like visible underwear. I love love love that she’s the civilian equivalent of hot waitress scores rich, conservative, country club guy.

  • kipper

    All the other PTA mothers are going to feel under dressed!

  • Courtenay P

    if’s official, Blake: time to get a stylist.

  • I wonder what the back story is here. She doesn’t measure up to her usual grand self. I appreciate her considering a longer skirt, but the fabric doesn’t work here at all. The boob area is weird. I wonder if she was in a hurry, or once she got the outfit on, she had second thoughts herself. Heart heart isn’t in these photos.

    The white runway shoes freak me out.

  • LuisaNL

    hahahah boob sconces ahahaha

  • LuisaNL

    It really isn’t.

  • Cameron Turner

    I like the outfit, but hate that you can see her strapless straight through the shirt….

  • eowyn_of_rohan

    The silly putty pumps are the brightest spot in this look. And that’s a really bad sign.

  • Kristin McNamara

    Oh weird. I’m not sure if it’s just me or my monitor, but I was interpreting this as a pale mint green. Sorta gray, true. But I read it as super pale green. Either way… not her friend.

  • It’s not appropriate attire for the event, but the color looks beautiful against her (always) perfect tan. If she were to spend as much on a stylist as she does on her spray tan, she’d reign supreme over ‘everyday’ looks as if they were Met-Gala red carpets. Love her!

  • MilaXX

    Wrong bra! She probably went strapless because she didn’t want to risk having straps show when she removed the cardigan. She just choose the wrong one. I like the skirt, but I do not understand why they would only have design on the front like that.

    • Donna Tabor

      To me it looks more like those paste-on cups than a strapless bra.

      • Heather

        Indeed, while I am glad that she is WEARING a bra (am amazed by how many of these starlets find that optional… I do not leave the house without one), I resent both that I can see it, and that it’s the wrong choice here. Blake, girl. The Calvin Klein Tshirt Bra, in a color close to your skin tone, is your friend!

    • lobsterlen

      I believe the front of the skirt is bejeweled and not the back because it would uncomfortable to sit on glass stones.

    • Little_Olive


  • Introspective

    so bored with her. waiting for when hollywood gets bored with her too. she feels so nondescript in general, but especially in this office party outfit…

  • lobsterlen

    Don’t you wear those silly putty colored shoes to make your legs look longer? Followup question … Why would Blake Lively need to make her naturally long legs look even longer?

  • veleri

    she looks older!

  • Jangle57

    I guess I’m feeling generous cause I really don’t mind this all that much. I noticed that reviewing pictures of this event on other sites that a) it’s Ryan’s movie, not hers, b) in a shot of him in the movie theatre he’s not even sitting anywhere near her and c) she’s there with her brother and her 2 nephews who are included with the shots of her on the red carpet, and her brother is in jeans so perhaps she was just looking for something that was somewhat formal but not too formal as to make her brother and nephews feel the need to be dressed up.

  • MzzPants

    I detest Jekyll/Hyde skirts.

  • Nancer

    SO disappointed in the skirt when I realized that the back is plain – it just makes it look cheap. Of course, the weight of this might drag the skirt down if it was embellished on both sides, so maybe this was a pragmatic decision.

    • conniemd

      Imagine trying to sit on a skirt with those stones glued/sewn on the back. You’d be squirming in your seat.

      • demidaemon

        I agree on the practicality matter. However, it doesn’t really make the designer look very good. We would have never known about it if she hadn’t made the side-turn. But, since she picks out all her own red carpet looks and doesn’t seek a stylist’s help (who would have told her, hopefully, how to pose in this skirt if not steered her away from it), she made the mistake of showing the weakness of the design.

  • boob sconces

  • seelebrennt

    she’s just so BEIGE. and i don’t mean the color. bland bland bland.

  • Danielle L

    Visible bra for a kid’s movie 🙁

  • gabbilevy

    A little mascara might have made her look slightly less… invisible.

    • marlie

      Yes, her face is SO monochromatic. Not a good look.

  • NBG

    Outfit is pretty bad but what’s really bugging me is the beach hair.

  • formerlyAnon

    Bath mat. Boob sconces.
    Y’all are really, really good.

  • marlie

    For f*ck’s sake, hire a stylist!!

    (Really? Those are the best shoes she could come up with for this look?)

  • frannyprof

    She. Bugs.

  • cowper

    Since it’s an animated movie, maybe all the stars could come dressed as their characters! That would make things a bit more lively (pun intended).

  • Helen C

    Why exactly is this hot mess a fashion icon again?

  • maggiemaybe

    Can we dial back the orange Fakey McFakerson tan? It’s giving me a headache.

  • TSkot

    Haters gonna hate. She looks fantastic.

  • Diego!

    And you forgot the shoes…

  • jjfg

    Cannot. Unsee. Boob sconces!!!

  • omg_dora

    She looks lovely in the first picture — like an elegant, grown-up woman. She usually dresses so strange I forget how pretty she is. If she’d worn that soft top and cardigan with a more appropriate undergarment and a more tasteful skirt of the same silhouette and length… I guess she’d still be underdressed but she’d look beautiful.

  • Synnae

    Totally agree with TLo- great items separately but not together and just a tad too casual for a red carpet, even if it is for a cartoon movie. Had she combined that awesome skirt with a more fitted and covered top, the outfit would have been fine.

  • DesertDweller79

    It looks half finished. Like, he ran out of the beading for the back. And then the top is just a piece of fabric he threw on while he was working on the skirt. If the embellishments went all the way around, and the top was a heavier piece of fabric which wasn’t sheer…. Then maybe it could have worked.

  • J. Preposterice

    why does she look…40?

  • demidaemon

    It’s a bit secretary’s night out. I’d like the skirt more if it was fully embellished. The split fabric seems half-assed to me.

  • MannahattaMamma

    It’s bad, it’s all bad.The boob sconces (!) are one thing, but what’s with the droopy half-eye? Is she being all come-hithery? It’s a movie about a SNAIL. Don’t “come hither” me, lady; you’re wearing a skirt that is a glue gun’s wet dream, and shoes from the mannequins at Dress Barn (not that that’s a bad thing) … so just do NOT be all “hither hither hoochy me” with the eyes. Genre collisions will result

  • Michelle Wilson

    I wish I looked so bad. I have no idea who she is or what she does, but she looks pretty gorgeous to me and I love the color and lightness of the sweater and tank set.
