Our first memory of Blake Lively is being absolutely hooked to Gossip Girl, taking notes on every outfit her character Serena van der Woodsen ever graced on the show (or that might just be only my obsession). While the college chic and high-glam signature Serena date-night outfits may have been the doing of the show’s stylist Eric Daman, Blake Lively continues to romance every red carpet, TV show appearance, and camera till date. Just as we brace ourselves for witnessing the evolution of her in her upcoming movie The Rhythm Section, the mother of three is back from her maternal leave with a bang! Her press tour for The Rhythm Section has been nothing short of a personal, one-person fashion show, no matter where she was spotted.

If you are about to Google who her stylist is, let me answer that for you: the powerhouse herself. Lessons from Gossip Girl, perhaps?

The first look of her press tour for the film was a Valentino trench, burgundy gloves and boots, layered with necklaces and dark lips, flagging her ensuing fashion marathon off with equal parts grace, equal parts sass.
This white button-up shirt with the velvet ankle-grazing skirt is the exact amount of work-serious and party-ready energy we need in an outfit, any given day. Add to that, printed boots and a wide-brimmed hit and you will have everything that proves why a B&W ensemble is the perfect canvas for sartorial experiments.
If mood swings wore outfits, they'd wear that black and white and this throat-catching blue number on the same day. The printed Sergreenko dress, cuddle-worthy Max Mara coat and statement Christian Louboutins is text-book dressing for whenever you're feeling extra good about yourself.
That's us, marching into work 45 minutes late. The look is fresh off Fendi's SS '20 runway. This trench coat, quilted shorts and combat boots goes on to show that comfort > anything.

Lively shows how to take pretty printed dresses and add goth to them with leather gloves and knee-high boots. The bright pink lips are a reminder that she is Blake Lively and she can pull off both with effortless grace.

 

The premiere screening of The Rhythm Section saw the return of the leather gloves and the boots, this time in an ageless Hollywood chic look with off-shoulder, sweetheart-neck Dolce and Gabbana velvet dress with Lorraine Schwartz jewellery. Smart styling FTW!
