IN or OUT: Blake Lively in Gucci at the Chime for Change One-Year Anniversary Event

Posted on June 04, 2014

This is not bad, right?

We’re asking. We can’t make up our minds. We really like the top half on her but we’re not loving the flare on that skirt. Looks like something that belongs under a Christmas tree. Plus, we question whether this mustardy yellow is her color and we SERIOUSLY question the idea of metallic shoes with it. The hair’s generic and the jewelry’s random.

Hunh. We think we just talked ourselves into not liking it.

 

 

 

 

Bitter Kittens make the call:

 

IN! She is giving me Sexy Stewardess and I’m living for it.

OUT! She is giving me baby poop-colored figure skating dress and I’m revolted by it.

 

 

 

 

The Kittens were Not-So-Bitter when it came to Amy Poehler’s business bridal look, voting it IN.

    • Gorengirl

      OUT– Color does not suit her and clashes with her hair.

    • teensmom99

      OUT. While the uncles might like the top, I think the big hole in the middle is not flattering and all I can think about is the tape she must have used. It’s too disracting.

      • MoHub

        Agreed. I find the split top—especially since she has nothing on under it—looks as if she bought it four sizes too small, tried to close it, and had it embarrassingly pop open as soon as she took a deep breath.

        • FuhUgh

          Ditto – out

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          Why do designers think that a big honking slit down the front of the bodice is a good idea?

          • MoHub

            Because the bodices lie flat on most runway models unlike on real women.

            • bitchybitchybitchy

              That’s true-when you’re putting clothes on walking hangers, you can pretend that that is the norm

            • AnguaVonUberwald

              It would lie flat like that on me. I was a real woman last time I checked. ( don’t mean to be overly snarky, but “real women” come in all sorts of shapes, including boobless wonders such as myself)

            • Sophie

              Then you can wear this kind of tops (but please not in that colour) and lord it over everyone else!

            • MoHub

              Apologies. Of course, you are a real woman. but as you say, real women come in all sorts of shapes, but designers seem to create clothing only for the tall, thin, hipless, flatchested ones or fail to make adaptations for those who are not shaped like runway models.

            • AnguaVonUberwald

              No worries! I understood your meaning, just objected to the wording.

            • EveEve

              I’m not so sure that the particular body part in question is “real.” This dress, even in that color, would have looked great on Lupita.
              I’m still giving it an IN. Nice dress, and the styling isn’t horrific.

            • barbarienne

              Even if they are 100% natural, this outfit makes them appear larger than I recall them being. The whole look is all TITS and the rest of her just disappears.

        • smayper

          LOVE that narrative.

          • MoHub

            Thanks! My beady little mind develops some weird scenarios.

      • smayper

        Agreed. Clothing overshare.

    • Latin Buddy

      OUT. Girl cheapens everything. You guys were on-point when you said “she looks like a movie star…but isn’t”

      • conniemd

        Yes, that explains my reaction to Blake Lively. She just likes like a bit player in a film, not a movie star. There is something just “off” about her.

        • d4divine

          She always looks like she’s playing the role of movie star…completely lacking the ability to appear real.

      • DinaSews

        OUT. Thanks. ‘Girl cheapens everything’ accurately describes my feelings. She will always be out for me. I can never get past the phony high school mean girl look on her face.

      • Kent Roby

        Yes. Some people (Tilda, Queen Helen, Rhi, and usually Lu) are able to make bad outfits werq; Blake tends to make good-or-great outfits bland.

        • Judih1

          Totally Agree.

        • Thomas

          Don’t forget to add Cate to that list! And maybe Lucy Liu and Fan Bingbing as well.

    • Frank_821

      marginal out. It’s passable. the silhouette is fine but the color is completely wrong for her. Soemthing more saturated or jewel tone

      • Kristi Mitchell

        I was going to say the same thing – a deep red or purply-blue might have made this an in for me. Or even an emerald green.

    • SarahVN

      I…I can’t. OUT.

    • Introspective

      not bad but its certainly not for the busty. and the color is such a no.

      a better color (royal blue or kelly green maybe) and no hole in the bust and we’d have a winner.

      ETA: out. which is where blake’s fashion choices always seem to land…

      • KES4K

        Yeah, the color and the bolt-ons really kill this one for me.

    • Kbear

      Out, out out. Looks like someone elses dress. Wrong color for her. She is just so “tepid”.

      • Beardslee

        And that someone else is Mary Tyler Moore, with the gap sewed closed.

    • Griffinqueen

      I think those silicone hooters are too big for that keyhole.

      • Capt. Renault

        Ten pounds of potatoes in a five pound bag.

      • Denise Alden

        Exactly my thoughts. Out.

      • schadenfreudelicious

        “We’re gonna need a bigger keyhole”….so very, very OUT

      • Rhonda Shore

        I <3 the BKs.

      • Sartorial_She

        What’s interesting about the boob-to-keyhole ratio is that she’s actually not showing much mammary tissue/silicone. Beyonce’s white jumpsuit posted earlier today displayed slightly more actual boobage than Blake’s dress does. And in the past, the BK’s have applauded many dresses which were much more boobtastic.

        So what is setting us all off? Our collective dislike of BL? The boob-to-keyhole ratio in the context of this particular dress? I don’t know the answer but I’m curious to know if other BKs have insight.

        • KateShouldBeWorking

          I’m gonna go with the fact that it’s a keyhole rather than a plunging neckline. It appears as though she’s – forgive the pun – busting out of it. Since she is voluptuous enough for that to actually happen, it’s tripping our Tacky Sensors.

        • R.A.

          I don’t think it’s so much the amount of cleavage (or lack thereof) and more about the fact that it’s just too tight in the bust.

        • schadenfreudelicious

          She may not be showing as much boob, but I dont find that type of keyhole flattering on larger busted gals, they gape and pull and the visual is just not pleasing…

        • Griffinqueen

          I think a small bust works best with the keyhole so the plackets lay flat. The dress looks chicer on the model.
          I’ve got nothing against boobs–I’m a busty gal myself. But I know the limitations this imposes on certain designs.

        • evave2

          I am responding on your note here, She, because you are asking a serious question.
          I don’t know what Blake Lively has done to generate the serious hate she gets here.
          It’s like every time Adrian Brody leaves the house he generates such an unpleasant response here (I just realized I may be confusing Adrian Brody with Adrian Brophy – whatever, the Oscar winner).

          She looks ok to me. I give her an IN just because everybody else is saying OUT and saying it so unpleasantly.
          “She looks like a movie star, but isn’t.” I liked her in Savages. She was far from the worst thing on Gossip Girl.
          Look at every thread of this whole page, it is filled with people everybody keeps saying Who is That (I actually looked up Sophia Bush from yesterdays CFDA post – I never watched any show she was on but may catch Chicago PD just because I’m from Chicago.) So there are LOTS of people trying to look like somebody famous.
          Why does Blake Lively get so much venom?
          She’s a generic pretty girl; she must be nice enough because people are willing to work with her (I note this, the bitches really don’t continue to get work.) and I never heard of her doing anything like Reese Witherspoon or God help us all Lindsay Lohan did.
          So why the hate?

          • Griffinqueen

            She dresses badly and the BKs won’t stand for that.

          • Glam Dixie

            I also noticed how nasty the comments were for her, even moreso than usual. I don’t get it either, she’s never done anything like say Reese Witherspoon to make herself look like a total bitch. She’s a tall, kind of bedroom eyed blonde who doesn’t always dress herself to best effect, oh my god, I must hate her!

            • demidaemon

              I don’t hate her, but she does set off my irrational dislike sensors, mostly because she has the expression of the haughty girls I knew in junior high and high school who were (fill in the blank) to me, and I can’t get over the correlation. Also, she has zero style instincts and lacks the common sense to hire someone who does.

            • Glam Dixie

              Mindy Kaling has way worse style instincts and Katie Holmes holds the crown for the nasty I’m better than you face and they don’t get the same hate that this poor girl gets. I’m no fan of theirs, but this girl and Kristen Stewart really seem to push peoples buttons. I just don’t get it, but I certainly have the ones I can’t stand so to each their own I guess.

            • demidaemon

              I think, for me, is that I can find something to appreciate about all those other people (except maybe Katie Holmes, but I’ve given her a pass due to crazy having to deal with Scientology stuff that will probably end soon, and even then I can’t muster up more than an “enh”), but I have trouble finding something to appreciate in Blake. It’s probably just how I feel.

            • gabbilevy

              She defaults to that dead-eyed, heavy-lidded expression on the RC, with the subtext of “be sexy be sexy be sexy.” Which, coincidentally, really never does come across as sexy. Thats what bugs for me, anyway.

          • KateShouldBeWorking

            I don’t hate her but I can’t say I like her. The most negative thing I can say is that I don’t find her especially talented or charismatic. I am unaware of roles or campaigns that she got over others I would have preferred so I, personally, can’t get too worked up.

          • SophieB210

            She’s the human equivalent of “Stop Trying to Make Fetch Happen.” She plainly wants so badly to be a style icon a la Cate Blanchett but doesn’t understand fashion enough to realize how much her “generic pretty girl” look and silicon C cup are the antithesis of her goal.

            • evave2

              That still doesn’t explain the venom. Someone above said she reminded her of girls she knew in high school.
              Strangely that reminds me of a scene in that Legal Whatever with Reese Witherspoon in which someone is rude to Reese and she asks why and the other girl says you remind me of the unpleasant girls in high school. To which Reese replied, I have never been anything but polite so that makes you just like them, treating somebody badly just because. It’s the venom. If she is trying to be Cate Blanchett she has set an unmeetable goal. It’s just that everybody mentions other people who just miss the mark in fashion. But Blake Lively gets the venom of somebody who bathes in baby blood.

            • cocohall

              It’s sort of a mystery to me too, as I just can’t see any reason to get so worked about her – she just seems sort of generic – a pretty girl who sometimes dresses nicely and sometimes not. I didn’t watch the show she was on – was her character unpleasant and people are assuming she IS her character? As for this outfit, she looks like she should be in that Airplane movie as a sexy stewardess. It looks more like a costume than real clothes. But that’s about all the criticism I can muster.

      • Tessa85

        OUT. The dress would look better on someone flat-chested. I don’t hate her, but I’ve never seen her in anything which makes me question her ubiquity (see also Kate Bosworth and Sienna Miller).

    • Jeremiah Capacillo

      IN. Although the look tends to go waitressy, the dress is sassy and fun. Could have done better accesorizing though.

    • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

      OUT! Resoundingly not her color, and when you fellas said you liked the top half on her my reaction was “You do?!” Slutty truck-stop hostess of the future.

    • hughman

      Ew. I am too distracted by the Boob Alien bursting out of her chest.

    • Aidan B

      OUT. Definitely not her color; it’s too close to her skin and hair color, and she looks monochromatic. Hate the cut of the top, and the hair is weird.

    • Marcella Cypher

      Gross. She’s reminiscent of a waitress hooker from the 70’s.

      OUT.

    • lunchcoma

      IN. It’s not perfect, but I think it’s cute.

    • flamants

      OUT because of the color. It looks like mustard yellow against the model’s pale skin and dark brown hair, but next to golden skin and golden blonde hair, it does skew, well, baby poop.

    • Monabel

      “Orrible in so many ways. Out.

    • alyce1213

      Out. I’m craving a hot dog now.

    • decormaven

      Out. The color clashes with the skin tone/hair color, and the bosom is yearning to break free. Not necessary.

    • jtabz

      I actually think it’s a cute cut on her, though, yes, the fit in the bosom is stretching the limits of both the fabric and good taste.

    • conniemd

      Out. Wrinkled skirt drives me crazy too.

    • Tanya Wade

      “Delusional 70s Stewardess who reads to much Erica Jong.” OUT.

      • bluefish

        LOL!

    • Kayceed

      Ugh. Out – keyhole is badly proportioned and puce is just not a great color on most folks.

      • kimmeister

        Puce? Puce is brownish-purple.

        • misstressofsylar

          Or is it puke?

    • BlairBear

      Out. The closed collar with a key hole looks like it doesn’t fit and the color is not good on her the jewelry is hideous. She can keep the shoes and hair though

    • @Biting Panda

      OUT. The color, the keyhole, the smug expression. All of it. Out!

      • TinyDynamo

        The smug expression that somehow implies a complete lack of any actual thoughts. It’s almost admirable in it’s vapidness.

      • demidaemon

        The expression is also what tipped me over into OUT territory.

    • Shelby

      Out. I like the shape of the dress, but despise the color. And I’m not sure the color works well on her. I would have probably voted in if the color was a jade green or a nice burgundy.

    • boweryboy

      OUT. I like the dress, but not on her. The A-line is ruined by the way it fits her body. Maybe she had it altered or maybe it’s not a dress for busty ladies.

      • poggi

        Agreed. For a dress with sleeves, that’s a lot a real estate in the bust area to have uncovered. The covered up sleeves and a-line skirt only serve to draw attention to the chest slit which ends up looking like a gaping cleavage window (a picture window at that) on her.

    • ♠♥zee♣♦

      OUT- It’s painfully boring.

    • queeniethebold

      ZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzOUTzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    • JP

      OUT — Girl that is NOT your color.

    • Anna

      Time for Change: Less Boobs and Legslies.

      Out.

    • TinyDynamo

      Out. Even her boobs are trying to get the hell out of dodge.

    • Lex

      OUT- it is too monochromatic with her hair and her coloring. I think it makes her look all very yellow from head to toe. I DO like the dress but think someone with more contrasted coloring would make it sing

    • Celeste

      Out!!

    • Jangle57

      I didn’t have to talk myself into not liking it, it invoked an immediate feeling of revulsion on my part. Hate the colors, hate the leather trim and I hate the design of the dress from top to bottom. I don’t even like it on the model. OUT

    • Glam Dixie

      I like the dress on her a lot, but boy do I hate that color. Shoes are inoffensive but bland face and hair are pretty, so I’m giving it a tepid IN.

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      Out – she looks like a bottle of French’s Yellow Mustard.

    • butterflysunita

      OUT. Hideous dress with overly large boob window.

    • Meri

      Out. It’s very much not her color, and I can’t even judge the rest of it on her because of that.

    • PeggyOC

      Out. The color is terrible, it’s her usual game of something that might be nice that she wears with too much hooter or legs.

    • ThaliaMenninger

      I’m thinking she’s in a production of You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown. I think she’s playing the little sister. And she’s OUT.

    • melanie0866

      IN. She’s come a long way from her Boobs Legsly days.

    • KendraMR

      OUT. I hate the color and the slit is for a woman without that much boobage.

    • appliquer

      Out – not a fan of the color and another dress inappropriate for summer.

    • Alyssa

      Out. Don’t like the keyhole or the color. While her hair may be generic, I would love to have hair like that!

    • rissa42210

      OUT – She is giving me 70’s porn star trying to clean up her image despite bad color instincts and I’m revolted by it.

    • SewingSiren

      It is at least one size too small. If it fit , it would be fine.

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

      Oh, Marcia, Marcia, Marcia…

    • TerryMarie

      OUT — that color has turned her yellow all over. Not a good look for ANYONE.

    • Michael_Jones

      I’m thinking it’s a lower-case “out.” I don’t love that colour on her, and it’s feeling a little boobtacular on her. I think you need to be built a little more “model” than “sexy starlet” to pull this one off.

    • whaddami

      Gah, what a gawdawful color! Who would put that on a blonde????

    • luludexter

      out! the dress is ok, especially the skirt, but that is *really not her color* and the shoes clash

    • Bernadette

      Out she looks like a slutty 60’s air hostess and NOT in a good way.

    • Jennifer Bober

      Out, mostly based on color choice.

    • http://sleepingfoxstitchery.weebly.com CLoverleaf

      Out. I actually like the shape but I can’t overcome that hiddy color.

    • http://recapscallion.blogspot.com/ Claire

      I really love the dress and it suits her except for the color. Blake today and Shailene Woodley yesterday have taught me that tan people probably shouldn’t wear yellow. But I actually like the shoes with it and though nothing on her head is exciting it at least goes with the outfit, so I’ll say IN.

    • Lori

      Out. Boobs busting out of a poop colored figure skating dress, with generic hair & blah jewelry. I’m not exactly revolted by it, but I don’t like it. Plus she’s doing that annoying head tilt, mouth open pose she always does. I’ve come to really hate that.

    • Jecca2244

      weird styling. I feel in general that she has looked great recently and I think it might have to do with her not wearing super short and super tight looks. She’s a Camilla Belle in my book though…her celebrity baffles me.

    • Mary Elizabeth Poytinger Baume

      1960’s flight attendant. all she needs is a pillbox hat and Roger Sterling on her arm.

    • Annmarie Kane

      OUT. That color is universally fugly.

    • Rhonda Shore

      OUT. I don’t like the top part either, it looks like it gapes…

    • Nancer

      OUT. Color, cut, boob-slit – no.

    • NMMagpie

      That color is wonky and it’s just so…expected from her. Out.

    • Danielle

      So much mustard.

    • MilaXX

      OUT! I don’t like the unnecessary boob window, that’s not her color and the metallic accessories don’t go.

    • StarburstLady

      When I saw “Blake Lively” in the headline, I was all set to declare this out, but it really isn’t bad. IN for improvement? Though I also hate the color.

    • Judy_J

      I didn’t have to think twice about this one. OUT.

    • Nicole

      Out – dress does not flatter her figure, colour is icky.

    • Julie Chase

      The color is all wrong for her and the shoes clash with it.

    • crash1212

      OUT. That span of chestal area revealed by that gaping maw is freaking me out…she looks plastic under there. *shiver*

      • http://viridianpostcard.blogspot.com/ viridian61

        if she has had boob work done — she is plastic under there.

    • Pj Bryant

      Love, love, love this colour and style. She looks awesome.

    • elleg929

      Out – horrible color

    • Lilah

      I love the dress. I do think it would look better on someone not quite so boobtacular. Also would have been better in the ox blood color that was also in the collection. Tepid IN.

    • sunflower

      OUT. could have been in if it were a different color

    • Aurumgirl

      Who keeps putting her in yellow? It’s a colour that makes her look green.

    • https://www.facebook.com/pages/Words-in-Design/158664667624412 Tejana

      Mustard not a good color for her … or most people. Great for hot dogs, tho!

    • Sarah

      Out. I hate that color, and I hate it even more on her.

    • ashtangajunkie

      Out. I hate all of what’s happening here.

    • Sunraya

      Out. She is too busty for that dress opening. Did she get new boobs? They look really fake and are not flattered at all in this dress.

    • samo_samo

      The bottom is so wrinkled which I find really weird. It’s not bad, but I’m going to say OUT. The wrinkled bottom half pushed me into it.

    • Terri Terri

      No, no no. The breastacular top half is bad, the color is bad, it’s all bad!

    • Liz

      I’m not sure who would look good in that color-blech. Out.

    • MissusBee

      Out. Baby poop is a terrible color against her hair and the escaping boobs thing says ‘bimbo’, which is plain sad.

    • ktr33

      Out. I rather like the shape of the dress, but 1) I think it’s for a flat- or nearly-flat chested girl, 2) that is likely nobody’s color, except squirted on a hot dog, and 3) the skirt’s all wrinkly. Also the shoes are wrong. Also, she has that blank expression she seems to favor. So, yup, out.

    • James

      Out. Her boobs tearing her dress in the middle is not what I should be thinking. Ghastly color too.

    • Miranda Neville

      OUT. Hiddy.

    • http://dentsdelait.tumblr.com/ Nancy Marion

      OUT. The split top turns her boobs into an ass bared by split pants. Yellow is not her color—makes her look even more wax doll-like than she normally does.

    • ChelseaNH

      OUT — the color is completely wrong. Plus the Sexy Stewardess thing is kind of a negative, unless you nail the styling, which she hasn’t.

    • Kent Roby

      OUT: the outfit itself is fine, and she wears it okay, but her innate blandness drags everything down.

    • KT

      It’s a pretty cute dress, but it definitely would have looked much better in another color. Maybe in a navy or forest green. Although just thinking about these colors, and considering the sort of back-to-school vibe this dress has (albeit, the Hollywood reinterpretation of course) makes me think this would work better as a fall outfit — with boots and a pea coat to go with it. The dress needs something more to make it sing. I’ll still say she’s IN, but she could have done better.

      And you’re right, the shoes are all wrong.

    • Anne Elliot

      out. girl is always posing so hard

    • Snailstsichr

      Out for all your reasons and also I don’t like the shoes with this dress.

    • BLauD

      Out. Mostly because I can’t find anything I like about it…

    • d4divine

      Out…for all the reasons stated before my post

    • LadyVimes

      Should have been a pencil skirt. The flare isn’t working.

    • another_laura

      Out for reasons stated well by others. (I just like seeing my own comments!) She should stay away from that color, the bodice is ugly and the shoes are awful with it.

    • mickiemonkey

      Horrid color and it looks like her boobs are going to pop out and roll across the room.

    • Imasewsure

      Slightly OUT I can live with the top and the color (almost) but the bottom in kind of ugly and the fabric is dull overall

    • frannyprof

      Out. Horrible fit and wrinkled skirt. And baby poop.

    • suzq

      Despite the Jeannie C. Riley, Harper Valley PTA realness, No. The color is ugly as sin and the lampshade skirt makes this look like a bad 1960’s go-go costume.

      “Chime for Change” is about raising money for women’s education, justice and health care around the world. What a perfect event to show off the rack, don’t you think?

      • Shawn EH

        Some people are too dumb to be stars.

        • demidaemon

          I didn’t know they actually had a bar set for that.

          • Shawn EH

            I think she and Ry-Ren are trying to lower it, nonetheless.

            • demidaemon

              Well, good luck to them on that, I guess.

    • trisker

      Out. Hate color and style.

    • jilly_d

      I feel like if this were in a berry color, it would have been terrific. As it stands, it’s a lower case “in.”

    • Tricia Rose

      Out: mostly because of the vacant drugged look in her eyes.

    • vitaminC

      “She looks like a pixie stick smuggling volleyballs, smuggling grapes, smuggling craisins.” So to speak. OUT.

    • altalinda

      Out. But could have been an in with some tweaks. FItted better in the bust so she’s not bursting out. And get rid of the wrinkles.

    • E. D.

      OUT. Someone’s trying to make the 70s happen. It’s not going to happen. What’s next, a macrame top with an avocado green maxi skirt?

    • warontara

      Out!! This color is terrible on her. It makes me think of movie theater butter for some reason. Even if it were a better color, it’s still yawn-inducingly generic.

    • Eclectic Mayhem

      OUT. On principle.

    • Betsy

      Please make her go away.

    • Shawn EH

      She is giving me my kindergarten school teacher’s cleavage peephole and that’s NEVER BEEN RIGHT! Out! And old-fashioned!

    • Meg

      OUT. It looks like a mustard Jetsons costume.

    • Andrea Lentz

      OUT i think this would be way cuter on someone else but i can’t think who lol

    • http://www.beautifymylifeblog.com Jessica

      OUT! What is it with all of the ladies today and wearing things that make it look like their boobs hate each other?? I’m not suggesting pushed together cleavage as a necessary alternative, but it looks like you could drive a truck through that space. Same goes for Taylor Schilling and, to a lesser extent, Beyonce.

    • dash1211

      Oh [yawn] out.

    • http://logical-insnaity.com/ elizonthelam

      Out. If it had been in almost any other color it’s be in. But the lame hair and accessories keep it squarely out!

    • Heather

      OUT

      The top makes her boobs look weird.

    • greymain

      OUT not a good color…HATE the chest slash….

    • LeelaST

      OUT. That cleavage situation – ugh. Plus color, fit, shoes…

    • B_C_J

      OUT! Her bust is too large for the design of the top. The color is horrible on her & she is utterly forgettable in this.

    • FibonacciSequins

      OUT. Her cleavage looks plastic and it’s all I can see.

    • Fyolette

      out. damn, that’s way too much yellow for one picture

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

      If it were on someone who isn’t her, I’d probably give it an in, especially if it were a woman with darker skin. As it is, girl, that’s not your dress. OUT.

    • kimmeister

      Out because it’s not her color and it’s even making her eye shadow look bad.

    • quiltrx

      OUT. First thing I thought was “no to baby-shit-colored clothing.” Right up there with ‘puke’ on my least favorite colors list.
      I don’t care for her, but I can admit when she looks good–but this ain’t it. Unflattering and she looks hunched over (which usually means something in the fit is off, at least for me).

    • newidentity

      hate the color and the top half (or maybe the whole thing) is giving me 70s flight attendant porn vibes. Maybe I’ve seen her cleavage too much in the past few weeks.

    • Devon Whittaker

      OUT. The Boobs are bad. Just bad.

    • sunshine and chaos

      Out. Wrong colour for her, don’t like the sleeves, top is too tight. The flare of the skirt doesn’t bug me but that hip-level horizontal seam does. Why is it there?

    • http://www.bertkeeter.com Bert Keeter

      Uh…? First of all the top is TOO SMALL… Secondly, it’s all a wrikled mess. I’d put a zipper in the front even on the runway look…

    • Kerry McCombs

      No. Out. Yuck.

    • Michelle

      I love the shape of the dress, personally, but it’s too many yellow tones at once, what with the dress, earrings and hair. I think it’s an IN overall because the dress is beautiful, though.

    • Jean Beaton Leavitt

      Out…she is all one color..isn’t that a nono?

    • http://weirdinedgewise.blogspot.com ONEWEIRDWORD

      Not a dress for someone with boobs

    • demidaemon

      Well, it looks like a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen (anyone who is over an A is basically going to bust out of this dress) and her expression just naturally irritates me, so OUT.

    • nannypoo

      She seems to like that facial expression in the first picture. She often defaults to it but, sadly, it makes her look less than bright.

    • Emily Roach

      OUT. The keyhole isn’t good on someone with a bust like that.

    • GeoDiva

      OUT: It looks like she stole it off the costume rack from that bad Gwyneth stewardess movie “Over the Top”.

      • Amel

        my thought EXACTLY

    • Miss Ruth

      OU(CH)T. That color. Holy 1972 doctor’s waiting room, Batman.

    • Steve Ek

      Out. Color, bad. Fit, bad (at least one size to small for the boobage and it looks like she can’t breath). Shoes, pretty, but not with this dress.

    • Amel

      OUT: that color kind of blurs with her skin tone and hair so at a glance she’s just a mustard-colored blob with metallic pumps

    • somebody blonde

      OUT. Tit window. Also that color is terrible on her.

    • TheLaurenJean

      If it were in any other color, but this? Baby diarrhea should just really not be allowed to be a color.

    • CT14

      That color is horrible, and I hate the dress.

      Ugh.

      OUT.

    • Lisalady161

      I like the dress and I like the way it fits her, but that color has got to go.

    • Sarah

      OUT. Awful color for her, awful skirt shape, awful hole in the chest of the dress. She might have sold it with an actual facial expression, though

    • Qitkat

      It’s a pair of roller skates and a frilly apron with 29 kitschy pins away from a fifties throwback diner waitress uniform. Yeah, that means Out.

    • marlie

      OUT. Not Blake’s color, and not her fit; that dress belongs on a slightly less-busty ladystar. And her makeup, hair, and expression are the definition of “snooze.”

    • unbornfawn

      OUT. Don’t like the color and that pointed collar, naked chest combo on top is awful.

    • musi_

      don’t hate it but leaning to OUT. makes her hair look like straw. i don’t mind the shoes with it. her chest also looks like its fighting for freedom.

    • Danielle West

      Even though she’s one color from head to toe I still give this an IN.

    • uprightcitizen

      Out. For all the reasons you guys said, plus she’s got way too much bosom for that dress. She’s busting out of it and making it go all wonky. This belongs on Zoey Deschanel, but that color is tough for any white girl.

    • Courtney

      The color is just not happening for her. Hair, skin, dress, all kind of blend together and not in an attractive or pleasing way. Out.

    • random_poster

      OUT. That color does not look good on her at all.

    • macwell

      Not bad at all, but the lighting seems to be washing her put or something. …

    • Judih1

      Out – hate the style, the color and her silly posing just makes it worse

    • http://vhanna26.typepad.com Vera

      Out. This dress only works on a runway model, and while Blake has a killer figure, the dress is for models only. Oh, and the baby bm color doesn’t help.

    • Mothra

      Out. Terrible color and her boobs are too big. Well I mean, they look great but I think they are a little too pushy for that look.

    • AnniNoone

      OUT. Do the Fug Girls still call her “Boobs Legsly”?

    • Alloy Jane

      OUT. That color is awful on her and unless she’s going out into the world as a corn dog, should never be considered again. Oh, and Boobs Legsly living up to her name.

    • Sophie

      Out. Hate the colour, the big slit in the front, the hair and the earrings. I think it could be marginally improved if the dress were the shade of the leather bands.

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

      Out. She looks sallow.

    • kfizz

      OUT out out OUT!! No no no. That’s the worst combo of garment color and complexion I have literally ever seen. I am shocked. So bad.

    • Melissa Mendes

      Nope. Looks like a Barbie doll, not in a fun way. Like the Barbies I gave the ugly outfits to and didn’t let ride in the convertible.

    • Kelly

      Out. “Jaundice” is not a good look for her. And the giant keyhole is just tacky.

    • Khaleesi1031

      OUT–this has Halloween flight attendant costume all over it, all that is missing is the included hat accessory

    • Pterodactyl111

      Out. I really just want to sew up the middle.

    • Margaret Grace

      Make it in ox-blood, dark green, navy or something and I would love it! (but then, of course, it wouldn’t be appropriate for this time of year)

    • LibKat

      Judy Jetson’s sex tape. Very out.

    • http://phantomminuet.blogspot.com/ MinAgain

      Out. A bare sternum is not appropriate for street wear.

    • smh4748

      Out. I think I could get behind the dress, but that is so emphatically not her color that I just can’t forgive that. You may be supremely gorgeous, Blake, but it turns out you can’t wear *everything,* and mustard is on your “can’t wear” list.

    • Haley Buchanan

      OUT. No yellow on blondes. Even as a foolish blonde teenager, I have always instinctively known this rule, and Blake should too.

    • MartyBellerMask

      Questionable details, but not enough to call this one out. Therefore, IN.

    • http://cheekypinky.wordpress.com cheekypinky

      In, but only because it reminds me of Vera Ellen’s rehearsal tap dress in “White Christmas”.

    • ankali

      Eh, IN, I guess. She looks nice enough, though the color’s not great on her, and her eye makeup kind of sucks.

    • Jarethee

      I actually wish she was wearing the boots that the model had.

    • Samantha Irene

      IN – if she’s going for Southwest Stewardess from the 70’s. OUT – if that was not the desired effect.

    • BrianaJC

      OUT – really bad color. You’re spot on calling out the shape of that skirt on her. And the shoes and jewelry are not right. If this were separates, she could keep the top in a different color, and pair it with some giant ball gown of a skirt.

    • holla

      girl that is not your color. OUT. This could be really nice if it was a deep jewel green or blue. the shape is very nice though.

    • http://TheDoseofReality.com/ The Dose of Reality

      OUT…even if someone had steamed the skirt.

    • Rebekah B

      I’m one of the few (it seems) who likes Blake Lively, and yellow’s my favorite color, but even I have to go with OUT on this one.

    • Joey Melliza

      Stewardess for Air Honkytonk Realness

    • barbarienne

      OUT, for the color alone. Ew.

      But more than that–the keyhole is accentuating her bosom to the point where that’s all you see. Everyone wants to look like they’ve got big boobs, but this outfit reduces Ms. Lively to a pair of tits and nothing else.

    • Laura Livingston

      Hustler Magazine’s office receptionist.

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

        That is such a fabulously specific read.

    • Mary Lauer

      Out. SO not her color! Look how it sings on the dark haired model!

    • webslice33

      IN! she’s the quintessential All American Girl!

    • mdcoon127

      color out, and girls are out too not in a flattering way in that dress

    • AthenaJ

      Boobs Legsy is looking very boobs legsy.

    • http://www.lippsisters.com/ Deborah Lipp

      I think there’s a charming sort of comedy to the dress that elevates her above Boobs Legly. It’s better the way the model’s wearing it, and the color’s not really her color, but the sum total is an IN.

    • patticake1601

      OUT – Austin Powers Airlines flight attendant uniform.

    • Pablo

      Out, but I’m living for the boots on the model.

    • katiessh

      Is there room for MEH? I like almost everything apart from the colour.

    • NBG

      Lea Michele wants her dress back.

    • AnneElliot

      Baby-poo colored figure-skater outfit = automatic OUT.

      And I am so tired of the sternum-baring fashions.

    • Mousentrude

      Out. She looks about ten years older than she actually is, which may be the dress or the hair and make-up. Either way, I don’t think it works. At all.

    • CheriCPat

      Out. Chest slit is too wide, even on the model. Not her color.

    • D J H

      OUT. Everything about the dress is unflattering on her–the color, the busting out keyhole (ew), the skirt–and the shoes don’t work either. Every time I’ve seen her not in costume, her clothes have been boring (on her), cheap-looking (even when they clearly are not) and questionably styled. She needs a new stylist who knows how to dress her.
