Miss Lady certainly pulled out the stops for this one. Then again (they said, quite bitchily), how often does Blake Lively get an entire night devoted to the opening of her movie? Might as well take it and run with it.
Unfortunately, this is what she took and is running with:
Blake Lively attends the premiere of “The Age of Adaline” in New York City in a Monique Lhuillier lace and leather gown featuring a feather ball skirt from the Fall 2012 collection paired with a Judith Leiber ‘Koi Fish’ clutch and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.
First, red lace, lingerie-inspired dresses feel awfully dated – which isn’t so much a knock on Monique Lhuillier because this dress is from a 3-year-old collection. Now before you jump on us, we’re not saying she or anyone else should be looked down on for wearing a 3-year-old dress. It’s just that this 3-year-old dress embodies 5-year-old style trends.
Second, leather, lace AND feathers. Come on. Pick one; maybe two. Three is just too much for one look, especially when it’s all rendered in lipstick red.
Third, the leather trim under the arm is, as they say, “unresolved,” and we find it terribly distracting.
Fourth, she looks like a sexy feather duster.
Fifth, anyone who’d pair that dress with that clutch has absolutely no idea what she’s doing.
But the fun didn’t stop there, darlings. Check THIS shit out:
Blake Lively attends “The Age of Adaline” premiere after-party at The Metropolitan Club in New York City in a Monique Lhuillier look from the Fall 2015 collection paired with Christian Louboutin pumps.
She’s a stripper AND a private detective! Tiffani Bambi, Private Dick (Hunter)! This fall on NBC!
Oh, Blake Lively. If you didn’t exist, we’d be forced to create you.
