Chanel Soho Boutique Re-Opening – Blake Lively In Chanel Couture

Karl Lagerfeld threw a party in New York City last night to celebrate the re-opening of the Chanel Soho boutique.

Many stars donned their finest Chanel garbs for the event.

First up my girl Blake Lively.

Judging by this picture its clear Blake didn’t want anyone making comments on her famous assets.

Normally you are crying out for her to cover up both her legs and her boobs.

She heard you loud and clear.

I love that she’s showing us a different side to her in this striped sequined Chanel Fall 2010 Couture dress.

It’s totally unexpected. I would’ve thought she’d pick a Resort 2011 piece, as that collection appears made for the Californian actress.

My only problem with this look is the shoes…again.

Her ankle strap Louboutin’s are so clunky for this Couture dress.

With high necklines I usually prefer a pony, but Blake sports ponytails so often on the red carpet that I’m relieved she didn’t on this occasion.

    The cuff looks like the one beyonce wore to the 2008 grammy awards, sans th eoutline of extra sparkle, if oyu see what I mean?

    I would’ve loved that dress better with a brunette and not orange.

    Leighton, I would’ve loved leighton in this.

    what a mess

    the model looks 100 times better. she looks so lifeless.

    i will never understand why Anna is so crazy about this girl.

    Like, the effort and attempt of change is appreciated but it really didn’t work. I’m sure in her stylist’s head she was going to look as whimsical as the model, but she really really didn’t.

  5. Hannah September 10, 2010 at 22:12 #

    It ahs grown on me, I like the change, pose and lack of a pout, which I think looks ridiculous on blake, as sh ehas thin lips so pouting emphasizes that. I wish she realised howmany hair stylists there are in new york, and that couture rarely goes with a lightning bolt/zig-zag cuff. I would have prefered other shoes but the platform was necessary. I am pleasantly surprised.

    didn’t like it at al!
    she can’t pull this look!
    i think she’s only good with the usual sexy style.

  7. Laura September 10, 2010 at 20:20 #

    Ehh I don’t like this look. Bright and sparkly can very easily look cheap and immature. And I’m not one who constantly fusses about Blake covering up. If you have a look that works for you, go with it. This looks like Blake’s trying to hard to be different and unexpected.

    Where is her neck?

  9. moja31 September 10, 2010 at 17:45 #

    it’s hard to imagine this look being more ill fitting; wrong person, wrong proportions, and wrong accessories. i’m continually confused as to why people think she has such great style.

    • justme September 10, 2010 at 18:49 #

      You and me both. She gets it right once in a blue moon which makes Anna Wintour’s obsession with her even more comical.

  10. Sophia September 10, 2010 at 16:11 #

    I’m sorry to say that but I think it looks way better on the model. Blake has a cute style but it seems to me like she didn’t really “understand” this dress and that makes her look slightly weird. ^_^

  11. nicky September 10, 2010 at 15:48 #

    definitely not a good look. even blake who herself is tall did not pull this look off. the length, colour, cut all made this look badd. even her hair is awful!

  12. Anissa September 10, 2010 at 15:21 #

    I see what she was going for but I don’t think it worked. Yes it did cover her gams and cleavage but the neckline is all wrong for her. Tyra would scold her soundly 😉

    She also takes a dress full of whimsy and makes it boring, and her bracelet kind of looks like a tattoo at first glance…

  13. Sisi September 10, 2010 at 15:10 #

    Er…….Her Marchesa dress was much better than this one. This dress makes her dull and lifeless, and she looks neckless. Her hairstyle and whole make-up were horrible. You could see skin color difference between hairline and the edgy of foundation color(too tan).

  14. Moxie September 10, 2010 at 15:06 #

    I love the boots the model is wearing, they go perfectly with the dress. But I know you aren’t fond of boots, FC.

    • Fashion Critic September 10, 2010 at 16:31 #

      I think the models boots would’ve worked better

  15. Kim September 10, 2010 at 14:54 #

    I didn’t like any of this.

  16. Joy September 10, 2010 at 14:51 #

    Awful. It looks like the dress is chocking her. The make up looks caked. And the hair… Just awful overall.

  17. mm September 10, 2010 at 14:46 #

    If the hair wasnt a stringy mess, she could’ve gotten away with the hair being down.

  18. mochababe73 September 10, 2010 at 14:21 #

    I like the dress better on the model.
    For Blake, it needs to be shorter. The length of the dress along with the shoes cuts her off.
    On top of everything else, she looks neckless.

  19. Ju September 10, 2010 at 14:10 #

    I usually prefer when she shows her legs.

    I don’t really mind the shoes, but I think she would have looked 100% better with her hair up.

  20. Elena September 10, 2010 at 13:57 #

    The dress is so beautiful on the model, but on Blake it’s just flat and liveless. Don’t like it. The pose doesn’t help either

  21. Camille September 10, 2010 at 13:46 #

    The shoes!!! FC what is up w/all these lovely ladies having so much trouble finding the right shoes for an outfit?? There are so many gorgeous shoe choices out there and they inevitably pick the clunkiest most inapproriate shoe they can find..ugh! And don’t even get me started on that hair. Hideous, it looks like mine when I roll out of bed in the a.m. And she has such gorgeous hair, no excuse for this limp lank mess. I actually like the dress, but it was sooo not styled to shine.

  22. Lei September 10, 2010 at 13:43 #

    uh oh.. this is not a good look

    Me no likey! :S

  23. Anna September 10, 2010 at 13:30 #

    I don’t like this AT ALL. Too long, the shoes are way too matchy-matchy, the hair (which usually looks so good – pony or not) just doesn’t work and she appears to have NO neck.

    + I seriously believe that some people (NO matter HOW gorgeous they are) can’t do couture. And she is one of those people. The dress is just LOST on her.

    I totally hate this look…. she looks like a witch with those colours in the way they were mixed.. purple and black… BLAH! It works better in the model. And as usual I hate her shoes….. And pleaaaase, she needs to learn how to pose… Close your mouth, BL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She tries so hard to be sexy.

    • E September 10, 2010 at 13:38 #

      I agree! The trying so hard to be sexy does not work with this dress at all.

      • Sally September 10, 2010 at 15:25 #

        At first I thought she was looking pained or feeling miserable. But, you’re right, it’s her ‘sexy’ face and body pose juxapositioned with a fun dress.

  26. dag September 10, 2010 at 12:57 #

    Love the dress, don’t mind those shoes but really hate her hair it looks like they need to be washed!

  27. Marvel September 10, 2010 at 12:57 #

    I dont mind so much the shoes, its the length thats bothering me. The ‘Go Fug Yourself’ girls will be having a field day with no ‘Boobsy Legsly’

  28. jello September 10, 2010 at 12:39 #

    I love the dress!!

    Can’t really see how the shoes look in the picture, but i think they look fine with the dress. I think this dress goes well with clunky footwear.

    Just wanted to say again though… I love this dress!

  29. Vanessa September 10, 2010 at 12:36 #

    I was so dissapointed with this look. Love the dress and that she covered up, but hate the hair and the shoes

  30. Dorian Gray September 10, 2010 at 12:24 #

    So beautiful, but I prefer her usual assets 🙂

  31. june September 10, 2010 at 12:13 #

    funnily enough, i actually think the dress is too long on her. it hits the model just below the knee, or something approximately there, and it seems to hang down even further on blake. with those shoes cutting her off at the ankle and the long dress, it makes blake look a lot shorter than she actually is.

    it should be knee length or just below (or even shorter – blake does have great legs).

  32. Elle September 10, 2010 at 12:12 #

    she should tie up her hair!!!

  33. eimear September 10, 2010 at 12:09 #

    Completely agree about the shoe choice! That pewter colour is way to similiar… and they look a bit officey. What shoe would you have put with this dress.. ?
