Blake Lively In Chanel Couture – Chanel Hosts An Intimate Dinner In Honor Of Blake Lively

Blake Lively was spotted headed to La Grenouille in New York City on Wednesday night for a dinner party which was thrown in her honor by Chanel.

The “Gossip Girl” actress arrived wearing a Chanel Spring 2009 Couture dress.

Her white swan-like bold shoulder dress was decorated with chiffon and organza ruffled details around the neckline and on the skirt.

The guest of honour who is the face of their Mademoiselle handbag collection added white Christian Louboutin heels and Lorraine Schwartz platinum, green emerald and yellow diamond earrings to her look.

As I’m not a fan of white shoes, I wish she’s worn heels the same colour as her Mademoiselle clutch.

I would never have picked this look for Blake, but she looks angelic in her Couture dress. Unfortunately I don’t see this as a BDOTW contender.

What do you think?

Blake’s still filming scenes for “Gossip Girl” so she won’t be in Paris for Chanel’s show on Tuesday.

    This is pretty but nothing special. I am not wowed. I don’t like her matchy-matchy accessories. An ice blue satin clutch would have been divine.

  2. dee March 3, 2011 at 18:32 #

    Wow this is such a great look for her. I like everything from head to toe.

    Blake Lively has made some comments on how she thinks celebrities such as herself attending fashionshows, tacky. Its a rather funny statement, considering how she’s attended a fair amount of shows in the past.

    • Fashion Critic March 3, 2011 at 18:50 #

      I don’t think that is true. I can’t imagine she said that knowing she is the face of Chanel

      • Mario March 3, 2011 at 19:19 #

        She never denied it and it’s been going around for almost 2 days so it is true.

      • Via March 3, 2011 at 20:32 #

        That was what I was thinking too. It’s just a really stupid statement to make, and I’m positive her PR team aren’t very happy about it.

    • Anita March 3, 2011 at 19:14 #

      She didn’t say that. Fashionista interviewed her at the Chanel dinner and she said no and that she couldn’t attend the Chanel show because she’s got to film GG finale. I’m still surprised Fashionista printed that rumour with little evidence. Plus a bit of common sense on their part would have realised that the story wasn’t true considering she’s been to a million shows and will continue to do so.

    • Lee Ann March 3, 2011 at 19:18 #

      Don’t believe everything you read-she never said that

  4. vivi March 3, 2011 at 18:48 #

    wow… it’s nice to see the cutesy side of her, since she always portraits herself as a sex symbol

  5. Nat39 March 3, 2011 at 18:55 #

    Not working on her , esp. in the shoulder/neck area. Don’t like her hairstyle with the dress either. Very lovely on the model though.

  6. Erika March 3, 2011 at 18:57 #

    I think it’s the best I’ve ever seen her.. And I’m not even a fan :)

  7. Brooke March 3, 2011 at 19:07 #

    She looks pretty, but Naomi Watts owned the look Blake is going for here. White shoes are murder.

  8. AJoanna March 3, 2011 at 19:07 #

    So out of curiosity why don’t you like white shoes, FC? Just a personal pet peeve?

    • Fashion Critic March 3, 2011 at 19:24 #

      personal pet peeve. I grew up believing they = slutty girls.

      • Matt March 3, 2011 at 19:57 #

        I’m the complete opposite, when I see white shoes, I think Fundamentalist in church with an obnoxious hat praising Jesus.

  9. Anita March 3, 2011 at 19:18 #

    I didn’t really like her look at first but I’m slowly falling in love with it. She’s looking so thin nowadays, makes her look tired.

    I believe there’s another fête in Paris in her honour on Saturday.

  10. Alice[*] March 3, 2011 at 19:19 #

    BDOTW for sure.

    • mm March 3, 2011 at 20:00 #

      I agree, i just love the emerald earrings. I can agree with white shoes when you are wearing all white.

  11. juan March 3, 2011 at 19:20 #

    honey, it’s spring summer no fall :) love your blog

    • Fashion Critic March 3, 2011 at 19:23 #


  12. Kate March 3, 2011 at 19:21 #

    Though her shoe choice seems a bit heavy or too sophisticated for such a dress, I am still in love with Chenel’s creation on her and the emerald rings statement.


    would vote for her at BDOTW $)

  13. frommdq March 3, 2011 at 19:36 #

    BDOTW worthy!

  14. Tania (itsnishy) March 3, 2011 at 19:39 #

    I like her so much, I think the shoes are pretty too :) Def a BDOTW contender to me!

  15. Emma March 3, 2011 at 19:54 #

    Wat to matchy matchy. I loved this dress when I first saw it on the runway but Blake kills it (in a bad way) for me. And the shoes do not even get me started.

    Definitely not BDOTW.

    • Nat39 March 3, 2011 at 20:46 #

      It’s more like she murders it, just doesn’t look right esp. with the pic. of the model beside hers. Very wrong, certainly don’t see this as a BDOTW contender.

  16. Sharon March 3, 2011 at 20:11 #

    Cute dress but a little too bridal for me.

  17. Becca March 3, 2011 at 20:17 #


  18. A March 3, 2011 at 21:25 #

    I normally don’t like white shoes either, but somehow this works for me. I really like the way she looks, BDotW worthy.

  19. rawda March 3, 2011 at 22:08 #

    BDOTW!!! i just one word when i saw her ‘WOW’

    • rawda March 3, 2011 at 22:10 #


  20. Danika March 3, 2011 at 22:11 #

    Not a fan, I really really don’t like her shoes. And if Karl Lagerfeld was throwing a party for me, I’d probably have brushed my hair.

  21. Ariel March 3, 2011 at 23:22 #

    I like what she’s wearing but I don’t love the overall presentation. Her hair is just messy which puts me off most of her looks. Stunning earrings though!

  22. Leo March 3, 2011 at 23:24 #

    Don’t like it. This is for Anna Wintour, not Blake.

  23. Marvel March 3, 2011 at 23:46 #

    LOVE it!


    I think she looks great. I love her fresh smile!

  24. KateS March 3, 2011 at 23:47 #

    I do think the dress is pretty on her, but the shoes ruin it for me. Definitely not BDOTW.

  25. Hannah March 3, 2011 at 23:50 #

    I honestly find Blake so frustrating, because she seems pretty nice, and she has a great body, and usually good taste in clothes, albeit usually showing off her legs and or breasts, but she cannot style a look to save her life IMO. It all looks a little mish-mash. I mind neither the earrings nor the clutch with this stunning dress, but I think with this dress one colour group and simplicity was the key. I also really am not a fan of her hair yet again or her maeup. She doesn;t have the most ‘classic’ beauty face around, she is by NO means ugly, but her makeup always lets her down. Her face looks greasy not glowy and I cannot bear ehr eyebrows any longer.
    I’m sorry but IMO she needs stylistic help.

  26. b March 4, 2011 at 01:05 #

    Again. She totally ruins one classy look.

    How on earth she manages to make that look so cheap is beyond me. Maybe it’s the hair. I friggin hate it.

  27. Linda March 4, 2011 at 01:16 #

    LOVE it! I would definitely consider this BDOTW worthy. It’s one of her best looks ever.

  28. mochababe73 March 4, 2011 at 01:54 #

    I love the dress, but not on Blake. It’s far too sophisticated.
    The shoes are reading a little bridal. She should have done what she usually does-rip the runway.

  29. june March 4, 2011 at 04:52 #

    am not a fan of the dress in general, but blake is pretty in it. unfortunately, the shoes don’t work with anything else she’s wearing

  30. Anita March 4, 2011 at 05:04 #

    After seeing a few more pics I’ve concluded that I love it lol. BDOTW for sure.

  31. let March 4, 2011 at 05:23 #

    the dress in Blake looks so cheap,look like it made by a designer of Project Runway…..and she looks like a plastic barbie..

  32. Victoria March 4, 2011 at 07:13 #

    I like it! Thought it was a nice change from her usual looks. :)

  33. Lils March 4, 2011 at 08:01 #

    For the first time, I have to disagree with you concerning Blake.
    I usually don’t understand everybody’s passion for her style but this time she is divine! BDOTW

  34. Emi March 4, 2011 at 09:14 #

    Cute but not interesting or particularly interesting. I’m not a fan of B. Lively but, honestly, I think, as I’ve already written before, that she’s very overrated, she’s a kinda new Mischa Barton. Once there was O.C. now there’s Gossip girl. She doesn’t have what magazines often call K (for Kate Moss) factor. For me, she’s often without blame or praise, she always has the same apathetic expression. If she was going to get married I would have liked this look, but total white is such a dramatic and difficult look. So, not BDOTW, for me.

  35. M March 4, 2011 at 18:09 #

    BDOTW contender for sure. I m loving this look. It’s refreshing and she’s covered again. It’s the confidence that she has that made me like this look. To each his/her own.

  36. moja31 March 4, 2011 at 18:51 #

    one of the few times that i love what she’s wearing.

  37. Jones19 March 4, 2011 at 20:46 #

    Best look I’ve seen from her in months. Drop dead gorgeous.

  38. Carolina March 5, 2011 at 02:14 #

    Love her!
