While it’s pretty easy to rag on this gal’s style choices – especially since she tends to make them without the aid of a stylist (and also because they’re usually pretty bad) – we can at least appreciate that she has a love of fashion and an understanding that an entertainer benefits from mastering the art of self-display.

In other words, she likes to get dressed up in expensive designer clothes but tends to make some questionable choices about which ones and how to wear them.

 

Blake Lively attends “The Shallows” photocall during the 2016 Cannes International Film Festival at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes, France in Giambattista Valli couture.

Case in point. Also: HAHAHAHAHAHA.

Sorry, it’s so awkward and badly proportioned, with that weird little cape and that unflattering skirt that looks more like an apron, not to mention those totally wrong striped pumps. We couldn’t help but laugh when we saw the whole look. It looks like the choice of someone who picked it based on the name on the label and not whether it suited or looked good on her.

Having said that, she does sometimes land on something decent:

It’s very naive; more of a little girl’s idea of high fashion. Very Cinderella. That’s all fine. It’s a look that suits her. We’re not bowled over by it, but it’s pretty enough. It’s a bit too tight in the bodice, unfortunately. Also the jewelry choices are too matchy. Simple diamonds would’ve been more chic. And while we can appreciate the modern take on the classic Disney Cinderella hair, it’s a bit too windblown. Overall, it’s not a bad look, though. Solid B+, dear.
