Blake Lively returned to the red carpet post-baby adorning a velvet Dolce & Gabbana vision and we couldn’t be more obsessed if we tried.
Lively attended the premiere for her upcoming film, The Rhythm Section, at The Brooklyn Music Academy dressed in a Dolce & Gabbana sculpted dress and Victorian-style laced up thigh boots. The actor’s latest style shift gives way to an exciting few weeks of promo (hopefully) including opulent sartorial choices, an influx of statement boots and a smattering of jewels.
The Rhythm Section sees Lively (sporting an array of wigs) play Stephanie Patrick, a widow attempting to seek revenge against assassins who killed her family in a plane crash. The action-packed movie – which will be released on 31 January in the UK – includes notable figures such as Jude Law and Sterling K. Brown.
While promoting the movie, Lively has unveiled a selection of outfits, mainly incorporating her latest shoe fixation: lace-up heeled boots. As aforementioned, she wore Louboutin’s with a velvet sleeveless vision. And while she’s been in NYC, Lively has coupled the silhouette with a velvet tiered hem skirt and crisp shirt, a ditsy floral maxi dress and a canary yellow ensemble complete with a grandad-style argyle vest.
The last decade saw the Gossip Girl actor forge an alliance with a stream of renowned fashion houses, from fronting a Chanel Mademoiselle campaign in 2011 to having a pair of Louboutin heels named after her. Long gone are the days of her girl-next-door aesthetic, in its place a more glamorous, understated route. As the inherently stylish actor embarks on a new press tour, we take a look back at her fiercest sartorial moments.

The velvet! The gloves! The boots! Blake hit the red carpet for the first time after giving birth in October and she catapulted back onto the scene in an alluring Dolce & Gabbana dress and Christian Louboutin lace up boots. The lashings of jewellery add to the opulence and we simply can’t get enough.

The expectant actor further solidified her firm fondness for yellow when she appeared on the aptly coloured carpet for the Pokémon premiere last year. Tightly coiled waves and statement drop earrings ensured the star nailed this look.

A metallic dream is what we’re labelling this. The drop hem and halter-neck are simple a stroke of genius. With spiral curls atop her head (again), the unkempt beach waves are the perfect compliment to combat this futuristic look.
The BFI screening of A Simple Favour
Her stint promoting A Simple Favour in 2018 was littered with numerous memorable suit situations, but this pale pink three-piece suit was a standout moment. Lively donned sharp tailoring for a BFI screening and between the satin tie and nifty fit, we can’t decide what we love the most.

Beaming in a yolk yellow Oscar de la Renta creation, the then 28-year-old actress settled on another awe-worthy neon yellow design, with corset detailing and contemporary shirred hem. 10/10 for the duck-egg blue studs.
