Blake Lively in Gucci on the Set of “Age of Adaline”

Posted on March 19, 2014

Hunh. Blake is an actress of some sort, apparently. Who knew?

And judging by these pictures, she must be a very good actress, because we totally believe she’s a stylish lady with poise. That’s got to be quite the stretch for her.

But seriously, these outfits are really, really cute on her. Interesting that they’re using current Gucci as period costuming. Of course Miss Blake has a professional relationship with Gucci, so this is all a bit of lovely cross-marketing. Maybe at regular intervals during the movie she can flip her hair, look directly into the camera and just say “Gucci.” Like real serious and everything.

      Nice to know she can fake “stylish”.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork International Model

      Grim and prim.

    • PastryGoddess

      Are we sure the name of the movie isn’t the Age of Mumble-ine? What good is looking fabulous if you refuse to move your mouth

      • Kent Roby

        I just looked it up, the full name is “Age of Adaline: Sisterhood of the Traveling Gucci: A Lifetime Movie Event”.

        • PastryGoddess

          Ha!

        • charlotte

          Literally lifetime, given the character’s immortality!

    • vickilu

      Tennis ball.. hrm. What’s going to be CGI’d into that scene? Suspicious.

      • Toni

        I’m guessing that the contraption with the tennis ball isn’t in the shot, but is just a piece of equipment that they’ve put something over the pointy end so it doesn’t accidentally poke people.

        • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

          Actually, it’s likely for her to establish an eyeline. Whatever or whomever she’s looking at/speaking to in the scene is represented by the tennis ball and gives her something to focus on.

          • Toni

            Ha! I completely accept your take on the situation, because you know far more about this business than I do, it’s just amusing that you’re talking about eyelines since when I saw that particular photo it actually made me wonder if Blake was playing a sight-impaired character who was reading a book in braille. Something about the combination of her vacant stare and her fingers on the book.

            • @Biting Panda

              I wondered the same about the blindness. I found two descriptions of the movie, neither mentioned that as a plot point, so maybe she’s just confused. : )

            • Kitten Mittons

              Confused for sure (the actress, not the character). Which supports the need for the ball in the first place.

              “Blake, look at the ball. Look at the ball, honey. Over here. *snaps* This ball, the green one. Blake, darling, LOOK AT THE BALL. *whistles* Over here, sweetie, this ba……screw it, just fix it in post.”

            • Brett

              That definitely looks like a braille book supported by a very modern coffee thermos.

            • Kent Roby

              I’m betting that it’s a regular book…turned upside down.

            • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

              That’s exactly what I was thinking, with her fingers in that pose.

          • Kent Roby

            I’m happier now just imagining that the tennis ball establishes the eyeline with a CGI monster that is about to devour Blake.
            ETA: A CGI monster that, after devouring Blake, will look directly into the camera afterwards and say, “Yum, Gucci”.

      • alwaysanswerb

        It’s a very period tennis ball.

    • @Biting Panda

      “I’m not Boobs Legsly! I’m not dammit. I am an ACTress!” But since she’s not going “ugly” or wearing a facial prosthetic, no one will believe her. Poor Mrs. Reynolds.

      • charlotte

        According to IMDb, Katherine Heigl dropped out. So…we should be glad…I guess?

    • Imasewsure

      My best guess is that this is a period piece about a very fashionable time traveller who is either very depressed or who causes everyone else around her to feel awful. At least it’s better than bored, which is how she usually makes us feel!

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

      Pretty clothes. I am still not interested in her though.

    • MK03

      This is set in the 40s, right?

      • charlotte

        With clothes from actual 2014 collections…that confuses me.

        • MK03

          Hence my question. Is it a period piece with modern vintage-looking clothes or a modern movie with weird-ass styling??

          • @Biting Panda

            I think it may be a play on the plot. She is a mid-century gal, who at 29, has an accident that prevents her from ever ageing. So I think we’ll see modern clothes with that vintage feel, hopefully all the way through. That would be interesting.

            • Kent Roby

              An accident that makes Blake Likely’s character live forever? Oy, I’ll pass.

          • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

            Must be a modern setting – that is not period makeup at all!

    • Chris

      I know the look up top is supposed to read as a “period” look but to me it just reads as frumpy. Frumpy being a word I never thought I would associate with Blake Lively. The second look is cute, but that first outfit, especially the shoes, bag and hair scream “middle aged librarian cliche” to me.

    • SneakyKitty

      The outfits are adorable, but she is so boring that I always momentarily forget who she is when y’all post about her.

    • BlairBear

      Well if her performance is anything like her work in Gosisp Girl those great costumes will be the best thing about her performance. She will look beautiful but vacant. Also I am getting shades of January Jones.

    • Anna

      Pretty clothes, boring girl. Find it amusing that although she’s sitting on the steps of a different gallery and is in Vancouver, she looks like she could be waiting for Blair at The Met. But in the ’40s from the looks of it.

    • marlie

      I covet both of these outfits. First time I’ve ever said that about something Blake is wearing. She looks pretty great though. Now she just needs to translate this success to her red carpet appearances.

      • kimmeister

        I covet the jacket and bag in the first look, and the entirety of the second look (minus the shoes). Oh, plus the boobs and the legs while I’m on a covetous streak.

    • Sweetvegan

      She looks like Gwyneth Paltrow here. I never noticed the resemblance before, probably because Blake rarely presents herself in that Gwyneth-like lady-like way.

      • SophieB210

        I get that too, largely because the camel coat ensemble reads very Margo Tenenbaum.

    • webslice33

      she was actually pretty decent in Affleck’s “The Town”

      • stubbornthoughts

        I enjoyed her in Accepted, as well. Nothing to phone home about, but she was adorable.

    • marlie

      Anyone want to guess the plot of the movie (without cheating and checking IMDB)?

    • Betsy

      I love the way she looks here. Cheers to the costume designer/wardrobe department. I don’t have high hopes for her performance either. Still have not been able to “Men in Black memory eraser stick” her performance in The Town (a/k/a Heat).

    • hughman

      I find it hard to believe that someone who wears Gucci 24/7 brownbags their lunch every day.

    • Kent Roby

      Her purse in the first shot looks white/brown to me (because of the reflection); someone needs to make that version, because it is fabulous.

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      I know there will be plenty who ding Blake here…but honestly I’m wondering why Gucci is making such literal period pieces in 2013 and 2014 to begin with. More so for the first sweater and skirt. We don’t need that look back.

    • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

      The beach ball dress and sweater are giving me deep covets.

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      She looks so upset in these pictures. As if she were thinking to herself “I just know I don’t look hot in these outfits”.

    • Sabin

      If it’s 40s, that V is way, way too deep.

    • Rand Ortega

      Very Audrey Hepburn/Givenchy (who was her costumer in many films). That blue frock with the cardigan is D. VINE!

    • Angela_the_Librarian

      Love both ensembles! Just out of curiosity, what is the tennis ball on the stick in the 1st blue dress picture?

      • MilaXX

        Maybe it’s a focal point for something she’s supposed to be looking at that will be added in post production.

    • Danielle

      *immediately tries to balance coffee table book on top of coffee thermos*

    • MilaXX

      It works but soon actresses are going to be literal billboards like the nascar drivers.

    • quiltrx

      Being plopped on a set and dressed nicely does not an actress make.
      And is this a movie about being constipated? Because she looks that way in every shot.

    • Granny panties

      I want all these clothes! She looks gorgeous!

    • ajl

      How about you all stop criticizing an actress for doing her job and start focusing on the fashion—isn’t that essentially the point of this blog? Stop being so cynical. She looks gorgeous and the clothes are fabulous

      • sagecreek

        I think we’re sweet.

      • calimon

        Well, sounds like someone’s not feeling so bitter today.

      • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

        Whenever someone gets mad at us, they essentially tell us to shut up and just talk about the clothes. Guess what? We’ve NEVER done that. The site has NEVER been about that. And we’re NOT going to shut up.

    • tereliz

      So this period film takes place in Milan in 2013? I’m just going by the costuming…

    • susu

      LOVE these looks on her. Hair and make-up is great too.

    • poorellensmith

      That blue dress is super cute! (I still don’t care about her movie.)

    • sagecreek

      She looks great in this styling.

    • Truthiness2U

      Blake looks amazing in the amazing clothes. Which actually is not a natural thing for her, as one would think. So well done, film!

      Oh and I covet every single piece she is wearing. I want! I can’t afford, so won’t happen. But I so verra want.

    • Aurora Leigh

      #shadyapes! I bet Vivacious never thought that would be her legacy.

    • http://thishotoldbroad.blogspot.com/ Sara Leigh Merrey

      I covet the blue dress. That’s my style. I wonder whether I can pull it off at my advanced age. Oh, right. This isn’t about me. It’s about Blake. Don’t like the first look, love the second.

    • formerlyAnon

      I can tell she’s acting because I’ve never seen her in any heels as moderate as these. Flats, yes. Celebrity Woman stilts, yes. Moderate heels? Never.

    • Jacob Bowen

      I LOVE her hair that way! I think she looks incredibly good this covered up!

    • ‘Becca’lise Deveaux

      I erupted in the most hideous laugh at #shadyapes and had to explain myself to my roommates.

    • myristica_fragrans

      ryan’s letting her out of the house again. how nice.

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      I’d love to see that dress without the (admittedly lovely) coat – it’s infinitely more interesting than she is. #TheShadeOfItAll

    • a_liking

      oh, but I ADORE these looks.

    • elemspbee

      fab!

    • calimon

      She appears to be reading (with her fingers) brail text….is her character supposed to be blind?

      Blake hate aside, she looks believable.

    • http://kittysdrawings.com Esz

      it doesn’t quite work as period though – a bit sloppy and that coat is all wrong. I am assuming they’re hitting for 40s by the shape of the shoes. Or she’s meant to be a dowdy girl in the early 50s? Cos that bag does not fit the brown shoes. The cardigan looks odd too. Not to mention no one in the 40s had that much cleavage on show unless you were on stage.

      • in a pickle

        That was my take to, it looks 40′s…ish. Maybe early 50s? The rolled hair and the shoes seem to say 40s, but everything is just a bit off somehow.

        • http://kittysdrawings.com Esz

          The big funnel neck on the first dress is totally out as well. The proportions are odd and the colours dont work well together.

    • abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxqyz

      every single movies she is in flop, a literal box office bomb.

      • Melanie

        what about the town? i’m not saying she was the high point of the movie, but i enjoyed it a lot & i believe it did well.

    • FridaStaire

      That beach ball dress is fantastic!

    • Sophie

      Love the first outfit! I don’t think the second one looks as good, though, maybe just because I dislike the sleeves on the model.

    • MannahattaMamma

      ACTING NOW BECAUSE SEE HOW I FROWN SLIGHTLY?

      feh.

    • KinoEye

      Her face does not change from shot to shot. Seriously, it’s the exact same expression of vague confusion and maybe constipation in every shot.

    • MaggieMae

      Very surprising it’s current Gucci and not period costuming! I was fooled.

    • Bradio311

      I tried to give you a “thumbs up” for the #shadyape tag!

    • gefeylich

      She is so unbelievably boring as a person it completely obviates any “style” she might have. And an actress she is not – wooden yeah, actress, no.

      From IMDB: A young woman, born at the turn of 20th century, is rendered ageless after an accident. After years of a solitary life, she meets a man who might be worth losing her immortality.
