Forget the cheeky intro and opening tease, we’re just going to come out and say it: fashionably speaking, Blake Lively has been killing it all week long at the premieres and media appearances for her new movie, “Savages.” Our spidey style sense has been tingling off the hook as she debuted one amazing look after another, from a custom Lanvin cocktail dress to a vibrant Michael Kors suit. But it was her outfit at the film’s L.A. premiere that hit it out of the park, and made her today’s Style Superstar.
Blake was channeling old Hollywood glamour in a big way when she donned this skin-tight Zuhair Murad gown with a nude underslip and a dizzying pattern of intricate beadwork. The sideswept cascade of curls, the red-red lips, the simple gold jewelry; it’s all very Veronica Lake, and an interesting choice for the actress who usually favors a more fresh-faced and modern look. She looked confident and classic—and where most ladies, even ones with flawless figures, would risk being overwhelmed by the bold design, Blake was the boss of this daring dress from top to bottom.
And speaking of daring, Blake wasn’t the only star to step out in a dress with some serious character; Selena Gomez was pretty in pink at the premiere of the new Katy Perry movie. This Emilio Pucci number is definitely fun, but the ragged edges and random flyaway bits make it look like it’s made from confetti and/or Muppet hair…and if she weren’t at the premiere of a movie celebrating the woman who made it normal to wear cupcakes as a brassiere, that would be a bad thing. But y’know, under the circumstances, it’s actually kind of perfect. Carry on!
