Vertu Smartphone Launch Party – Blake Lively In Christian Dior

Blake Lively covered up on the red carpet at the Vertu Smartphone Launch Party in New York City last night.

The ‘Gossip Girl’ actress wore a burgundy Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2010 ruffled dress with black tights.

For a girl who’s used to walking the red carpet in barely-there mini dresses I’m very surprised to see her in tights despite the cold temperatures.

Like Cheryl Cole yesterday, Blake wore her cute dress with cropped leather jacket to toughen up her look.

She also added Christian Louboutin Fastissima velour booties.

This is not my favourite look, but Blake does look beautiful as always.

    I love the burgundy color, but I wish she had stuck to the runway look. The Louboutin booties are beautiful, but I much prefer the shoes on the model.

    She’s gorgeous and this is something I would absolutely wear on a night out (ok, maybe not opaque tights), but on the red carpet it looks a bit boring, no?

    this is exactly how dior should be worn.

    I don’t love the look, but the additions make me like it more than I would’ve. The color change and jacket really enhance the look. I’m still deciding on the tights, but this may be the very rare occasion where I like them.

    I prefer the runway color, with the jacket the dress seems a curtain.

    I love this look! It is part edgy part girly. I love the leather with the ruffles and the preppiness of the tights. The interplay of texture and volume through the ruffles, leather and fit of the cropped jacket also make it a winner for me.

    I love it! The colour is strong enough to carry all the black accessories. I wish she was standing against a lighter backdrop so I could see more details.

    I hate when people try to toughen up a cute little dress with a leather jacket. I don’t know why the dress can’t just stand out on its own.
    Oh yeah, I prefer the runway version. Her version is not as cute.

    Its so odd not seeing her boobs or legs.

    I like it. The colour is great and yes…beautiful as always. There is just one strip of cloth that’s hanging a little awkwardly in the front. Other than that I kinda love the look.

    You said it so right FC, she does look beautiful as always, always, always.

    i think she looks adorable–kind of casual and impulsive, but it totally works for me.

      I agree!! She’s beautiful.

    The jacket on a loose dress makes Blake’s mid-section very wide.

    I absolutely love the color of this dress.

  16. Ethne Blist October 21, 2010 at 17:16 #

    I don’t like this look. She should have worn it like the runway! NOOOOO! Stockings? Seriously?

  17. Angie October 21, 2010 at 17:09 #

    I rather like seeing an edgier side to Blake. Quite a departure from her usual va-va-voom
