Blake Lively In Carven – WonderCon 2011

Blake Lively attended WonderCon 2011 yesterday, which is being held at the Moscone Center South in San Francisco, California.

When I saw her in this Carven open-front dress from the Spring 2011 collection I did chuckle.

I laughed because I know this will be yet another love it or hate it look.

I personally think she’s having a lot of fun with fashion, and that’s clearly showcased with this look.

She added a white bustier to her midnight-blue and black crepe open-front dress.

The dress has accentuated padded shoulders, short sleeves and a puffy skirt.

On this occasion I do love her two tone ankle strap Christian Louboutin Très Décolleté pumps, but I don’t love her hair as it looks really messy.

I’ve asked before, and I’m sure when it comes to Blake I will ask again.

Do you love it or hate it?

    I really like the dress, but the make-up seems a bit too heavy for my tastes.

  2. MatteaAM April 2, 2011 at 10:44 #

    What’s to hate? The girl looks a-freakin’-mazing.
    and she looks like she’s having fun, which is always a huge plus.
    Love. It.

    Super fun and fresh look…shame about the hair and makeup. Too heavy for such a fun look!

  4. Zoi April 2, 2011 at 11:09 #

    Loooove the look!
    Fresh and fun!
    She looks amazing!
    The shoes work too!
    I think i love the hair but not the make up!

    I love it, first BOTW contender for me!

  6. bb April 2, 2011 at 11:24 #

    It’s OK to me. Nothing to write home about

    But it’s way better than the red Marchesa

  7. Man_utd_fan April 2, 2011 at 11:29 #

    Hate it

  8. M April 2, 2011 at 11:32 #

    love it… fun young n fresh….

  9. Naomi April 2, 2011 at 11:35 #

    This is a bit too dolled up for me, especially with the red shoes. I wish she’d done something with the hair and make-up to make this look more cool and chic.

    LOVE! With legs like Blake’s, I can’t help but love it!

  14. shubby doo April 2, 2011 at 12:33 #

    Love everything but the bustier and the hair. it’s definitely and fun look. good for blake for doing her :)

  15. Hisadora April 2, 2011 at 12:49 #

    She looks amazing!!! I’m super glad she’s having fun on the red carpet again! The dress is totally cute and the shoes work perfectly here.

  16. LemonPi April 2, 2011 at 12:51 #

    Hate it. She looks like she’s had the same wardrobe malfunction as Judy Finnegan at the 2001 National TV Awards.

  17. Michelle April 2, 2011 at 13:24 #

    The make-up is a bit too much and I wish she did something with her hair. I love this look from the neck down

  18. Helen Oakes April 2, 2011 at 13:37 #

    love it!

  19. fashionlover April 2, 2011 at 14:05 #

    i always gasp evrytime i see blake on your blog.
    she always gives us something to talk about. she’s definitely having fun. but i kindda like this look. or maybe it’s just my obsession with her.

  20. june April 2, 2011 at 14:07 #

    i would have been on board with this if she had better hair. it looks so… lacklustre with her hair, and normally blake has great hair

  21. LO April 2, 2011 at 14:20 #

    LOVE IT! I am not a Blake lover or hater, but it is a refreshing change from a tight mini. Still showcases her best asset, but yet is sassy & fun, and also not suction cupped to her ass.

  22. Sasha April 2, 2011 at 14:43 #

    I LOVE the shoes so much

  23. gragriP. April 2, 2011 at 14:43 #

    I love this dress it’s so fun and fresh.
    I totally agree with you guys about the make up..the red lips are a little bit too much but the dress is lovely

  24. Estranged April 2, 2011 at 14:59 #

    I love it. It’s fun, interesting and event-appropriate.

  25. Jennifer L April 2, 2011 at 15:12 #

    Personally I am NOT a Blake fashion fan, I’m never fully sold on her try-hard looks. But I LOVE this. Best she’s looked in a while. It’s cute and a little bit sexy and her make-up has the right amount of retro.

  26. TinaCZ April 2, 2011 at 15:14 #

    I adore the dress, but not so much the shoes.

  27. DivaMom April 2, 2011 at 15:53 #

    Agreed, completely!

  28. justme April 2, 2011 at 16:22 #

    I love the shoes and that’s about it. The hair is messy, so is the make-up, the bustier is ill-fitting at best and the model carried the dress better.
    But someway, somehow, this will end up on the BDOTW list. I’ll be in my corner silently juding lol.

    • Fashion Critic April 2, 2011 at 16:35 #

      There’s a lot of love for this look ;)

  29. snow April 2, 2011 at 16:29 #

    the fanboys certainly loved the look, but liked the comic-con one better for obvious reasons. she’s certaintly doing her best to sway their opinion.

  30. lee April 2, 2011 at 16:33 #

    love it. fashion should be fun and should have no rules.

  31. Eadaoin April 2, 2011 at 17:05 #

    LOVE it! Fun, sexy and not too try hard, for once Blake gets her shoes right! and I like the hair too

  32. Susana Yamaguchi April 2, 2011 at 17:28 #

    I really love it!! The dress, the shoes and the make-up!

  33. Matt April 2, 2011 at 17:52 #

    She just loves showing off that Cleavage at Comic Con. It almost feels like she didn’t go home from last year’s Comic Con, Same hair, added red lipstick, and another dress that shows off the bust.

  34. Jen April 2, 2011 at 18:05 #

    kooky, but I like it on her.

  35. molly April 2, 2011 at 18:31 #

    I hate it. It wouldnt be so bad if the skirt fell straight down, and didnt have pockets. I hate the shoes with this. She needs a higher pair of pumps. And the makeup are terrible. It makes her look like a clown. I guess I like the jumpsuit, just not on her. It needs to be worn by someone with a personality.

  36. Talita April 2, 2011 at 18:39 #

    I hate it!

  37. Hannah April 2, 2011 at 18:41 #

    Again, I don’t like it. I am all about fun with fashion, but I cannto see thsi as fun. It seems to, I know it isn’t, be a mockery of some sort. I HATE her hair, I hate hate HATE the lipstick on her, I think she cannto really pull off red lipstick all that well, personally. My real problems though are with the outfit. The bustier is WAY too tight, in other photos you can see the much smaller cup sized and her boobs spilling over the edges and sides. Whether this was done on purpose to either make her look at her boobs or notice the gratuitous size of them, neither of which would shock me from her, or if this was a genuine lack of fit, it is not acceptable to me. I really don’t like the shoes with this look, they really bring it down for me, and the issues with the taffeta are annoying. In short, she managed to drain this look of any level of chic it had in the “runway” photos.

  38. Emma April 2, 2011 at 18:45 #

    Hate it. This type of look doesn’t suit her.

    Has anyone else noticied that everytime Blake wears an edgier brand Leighton Meester has worn it months before?

  39. Linda April 2, 2011 at 18:45 #

    Love it.

  40. ShoeGal April 2, 2011 at 19:38 #

    I like this dress but she is just so not a Carven girl. She has slutted it up to much for me. The boobs,messy hair,and bad makeup are all just fighting against the dress for me.

  41. carine April 2, 2011 at 20:11 #

    i am not a fan. i find it funny she jumped on the carven wagon.

  42. misschatty April 2, 2011 at 21:23 #

    I love this look. I think had the hair or make-up been “perfect” looking, it would have taken away from the fun of this look. This dress shouldn’t be paired with long, curled hair.

    She looks very cute which is what she was aiming for anyways so a win in my book

  43. 2724 April 2, 2011 at 21:25 #

    Here FC. I’ve found the exact same outfit online at a remarkable price.

    No need to thank me. I do this.

  44. Nikki April 2, 2011 at 23:10 #

    Even until now I think Blake Lively is confused when it comes to her fashion identity. I feel that she’s trying too hard to be a fashionista and be a sexy bombshell or something. For me being sexy doesn’t mean having a great body (because Blake does), but she flaunts too much skin and her pose is awful. She’s not classy at all and it really frustrates me because I know she could do much better. I don’t care of she has all the access to the designer clothes and shoes but if she doesn’t know how to put them together and have the right posture then it’s all for nothing.

    Ok, now for the positives. I love her shoes and I actually like the outfit. Needs improvement on her hair and makeup.

  45. Amber April 2, 2011 at 23:32 #

    Look, up there in the sky! It’s Boobs Legsly to the rescue!

  46. mochababe73 April 2, 2011 at 23:36 #

    I love the shoes.
    I love the dress.
    I don’t like Blake in it. In my opinion, the dress doesn’t fit well in the bust area.

  47. Can April 3, 2011 at 01:01 #

    I finally figured out recently why I’ve never been as enamoured with Blake Lively as I feel I’m expected to be: she reminds me of a really skinny Britney Spears – with better legs.

    I agree that fun should be had with fashion, and yet I’m unmoved by this look. I do like the red shoes with it and I get what they might have been shooting for but it just doesn’t work for me, on her, personally.

    Might be because I never get any sense of personality from her (probably because I don’t know much about her – and I’ve never watched Gossip Girl).

    Don’t like how she’s worn her hair with it either. I don’t feel that she’s found a style individual to her yet, just that she’s worn a LOT of stylish clothes.

  48. Zineb April 3, 2011 at 09:11 #

    I think it’s a cool look but she could’ve done much better

  49. Emi April 3, 2011 at 09:39 #

    She looks like a sexy and a bit tacky Tyrolese. I don’t like the make up and the white corset. I read an article about her, maybe written by her publicist and not a real journalist, which said that she has perfect natural features, a perfect nose (?) and small breast, a classic face… What??????

  50. Tania April 3, 2011 at 17:24 #

    Love it!

  51. stylegoddess April 3, 2011 at 22:21 #

    Blake has too much cake-y orange makeup and big saggy boobs going to make this a good look. She’s been a fashion nightmare lately.

  52. FelipeA April 4, 2011 at 03:11 #

    I have to say i really don’t like it. The hair is too messy, the lipstick is way too bright and the dress just really doesn’t suit her. In a million years i wouldn’t have picked that dress for her. She would’ve looked much better wearing look 16 from that collection.

  53. susan April 4, 2011 at 13:44 #

    make it go away.

  54. Jones19 April 4, 2011 at 14:16 #

    I like it but isn’t she a bit overdressed for this occasion?

  55. julia April 7, 2011 at 01:23 #

    I love it! And love the shoes, but would change the hair a bit.
