Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds at the “Free Guy” World Premiere

Posted on August 04, 2021

We’re happy to report that we haven’t regained our red carpet cynicism just yet. Oh, we know it’s coming back. We can only be as the universe and the fates intended us to be, but right now, we’re still in that post-lockdown feeling of “Isn’t it GREAT that big, dumb movie premieres are back and celebrities are going out in horrendous outfits?” Why are we saying this? Oh, no real reason…


It just sort of popped into our heads unexpectedly.

Honestly, we’re thrilled to see Blake Lively on a red carpet in something so tacky we have to assume she’s partially trolling us all. Nature really is healing.

We, like most sentient mammals, find the Reynolds-Livelys to be a fun and charming couple. In fact, one of our favorite things about them is how they just don’t care what the other one wears on the red carpet. They’ll never coordinate their outfits and we think that comes down to being a rock-solid couple who enjoys letting the other one fly their own flag. So no, it makes no kind of sense for him to be wearing a corduroy suit next to her in a pink sequined sleeveless gown with cutouts, but they’re just so darn cute together and so clearly crazy about each other that we can’t get mad about it.

Make no mistake: her dress is terrible and corduroy suits are pretty much a fashion abomination (even if he is pulling this one off).




We feel bad about admitting this, but that trailer is actually pretty charming.
