Blake Lively aka our favorite Gossip Girl has always been one amazing style icon. Remember the spellbinding number she wore at the Met Gala this year and even last year? The diva totally stole the show. These days, though, her style is pretty different than what we are used to seeing.
The mother of two is showing more love to complete suits these days. Recently, she was also seen in five different suits in a single day! Lively’s new found obsession with suits comes with a reason backing it; the 31-year-old star is busy promoting her movie A Simple Favor these days.
In the movie, her character Emily is seen favoring menswear, rocking multiple crisp suits. And while Lively looks lovely as ever, not everyone is a fan of her latest style game. Instagram account @fashion_critic_ posted a picture of Blake in her latest suit, one from Ralph Lauren, and wrote, “It’s suit number 1,356 for Blake Lively’s promotion of A Simple Favor.”
To this, Lively wrote, “Would you note a man wearing lots of suits during a promo tour? 😱😊 So why can’t a woman? Just sayinnnn. No double standards ladies 💪💕” However, the person behind the post didn’t have any bad intentions at all. She explained, “You know I love you, and I personally have really enjoyed this tour.” She further added, “If you look at my website, I have said that I have admired your total commitment to rocking suits during this promo tour. That number was just an attempt at humour. I’m sorry it didn’t translate. Looking forward to the Paris premiere. 😘”
Blake Lively replied in her ever-so-graceful way saying, “Nothing but love…I don’t expect everyone to like it.” She also expressed, “Fashion that creates a difference of opinions is the fun part. I totally understand the missed humor. I do the same thing sometimes. Just lookin’ to encourage women to do what men do without being teased for it. 😊👍 Yes, even in a space as material as fashion. It all starts somewhere…♥️♥️ and everyone’s voice counts.”
Talking about females’ voices, Lively recently said in an interview that things have gotten a lot better for women in Hollywood. She insisted that even though their voices are being heard more, there’s still need for improvement. It’s clear that equality for women is a cause The Age of Adaline actress is dedicated to.
Blake Lively also seems to be in full Emily-mode these days. In the movie, her mysterious character goes missing. Ryan Reynold’s wife has been very keen on promoting this movie of hers with Anna Kendrick and Henry Golding. A few months back, she also deleted her entire Instagram page to look as if she was ‘missing.’
She then followed more than twenty Emily Nelsons on the social media network, making sure she had all the attention to herself. At the same time, her bio read, “What happened to Emily?”
