Blake Lively In Zuhair Murad Couture – ‘Savages’ LA Premiere

As expected, Blake Lively stunned on the red carpet for the ‘Savages’ LA premiere held at Westwood Village on Monday evening.

Dressed in a second-skin Zuhair Murad Spring 2012 Couture nude strapless gown with an intricate black beaded embroidered detail, the actress looked uber sexy channelling old Hollywood glamour.

She let the gown do all the talking opting for a few pieces of gold jewels including fan earrings plus she applied a red hot lip colour which matched her nails.

Blonde wavy locks swept over her shoulder à la Veronica Lake completed her look.

Dark roots aside, I love this look.

When I saw this collection presented back in January, Blake was on my wish list. Thankfully she did justice this gown.

Zuhair Murad’s sexy gowns and Blake’s smoking hot body continue to be a winning combination.

    Wow!!! What an incredibly beautiful gown! She looks fantastic. Agreed on the roots FC. Personally i’m not crazy about the lip and nailcolour… Too predictable. I’d prefer a rouge noir color. She can pull it of with her stunning golden pallette.

    • Christine June 26, 2012 at 14:19 #

      She looks drop dead beautiful! BDOTW! :) She is not playing when it comes to this promo tour.

  2. Bec June 26, 2012 at 09:40 #

    Wow. Please excuse me while I pick my jaw up off the floor!

    Werk it girl!

  3. Alina June 26, 2012 at 09:45 #

    I love the dress, but I find the hair and the makeup tacky.

    • Angie June 26, 2012 at 15:26 #

      I think so too. She cheapens what could have been a great look. The roots are unsightly. Thankfully she didn’t do what she usually does when it comes to jewelry (excessorize)

      • Natalie19 June 26, 2012 at 17:06 #

        Agree. The dress is absolutely beautiful!!!! but i think it would be perfection on Amber Heard.

        Blake does cheapen it…a lot

      • Nat39 June 26, 2012 at 19:29 #

        She cheapens it big time with that hair, makeup and nail polish. She looks like a high-priced call girl.

  4. d June 26, 2012 at 09:52 #

    sorry i can’t help but feeling she kinda cheapens the dress? :S

    am i the only one feeling this way

    great dress and she is looking good thou…

    • Kay June 26, 2012 at 10:01 #

      Stunning for sure, but somebody’s trying WAY too hard, it’s not the Oscars!

      • rebecca o June 26, 2012 at 10:36 #

        I agree. It’s way over the top for a film premiere.

        • Tahlia June 26, 2012 at 11:00 #

          Is there such a thing as being overdressed for a film premiere – why wouldn’t you want to look your best? I’d pick this over LBDs and black pumps any day.. Jessica Rabbit eat your heart out!

          • Milah June 26, 2012 at 12:08 #

            Of course there’s nothing wrong with wanting to look your best, but you can tell that she’s trying too hard to impress, glad that Chanel dropped her tbh!

            • Elle June 26, 2012 at 18:55 #

              Chanel didn’t drop her. She had a one season (Spring 2011) campaign contract like all the other models/actresses who have done their handbag campaigns. It’s different than a fragrance campaign like Keira Knightley’s.

          • Paulo June 26, 2012 at 12:30 #

            This site has proven time and time again that beautiful looks exist between LBDs and OTT looks like this one.

      • Jones19 June 26, 2012 at 20:19 #

        She’s dressing for the job she wants which is movie star. Nothing wrong with that.

    • Hannah June 26, 2012 at 13:28 #

      I agree but I can’t work out why. I’m nto against people wearing gowns to premieres, come awards season most people are too scared to wear killer gowns like this, so I’m thankful if anything that they get worn, I just think tthat teh hair & the makeup & the pose & the dress are maybe too much all together. I’m so excited to see her back, I’m really looking forward to seeing what she wears during the promo tour!

  5. zoe June 26, 2012 at 09:56 #

    she looks absolutely amazing, i think this is the best she has ever looked. definitely a candidate for bdotw.

    • Ahot June 26, 2012 at 15:16 #

      +1000! girlfriend blows my mind! just…wow! but haters are gonna hate anyway, which prooves how amazing she looks! I thought for one second she was in Versace, a Zuhair has never looked this sexy. Dayum!

  6. Beta June 26, 2012 at 10:07 #

    BDOTW contestant!

  7. Aline June 26, 2012 at 10:10 #

    When I saw this earlier today my jaw dropped to the floor. Old Hollywood glamour was exactly the first thing that crossed my mind. She looks uber sexy, yes, but she doesn’t look tacky at all. I guess this is my favorite Blake look and one of my favorites of the year. So yeah, BDOTW.

  8. Luis June 26, 2012 at 10:12 #

    Drop dead gorgeous. She does more than justice to this gown. Head to toe perfect.

    Here comes the haters attacking Blake again.

    • Pablo June 26, 2012 at 10:42 #

      +1 With you word by word.

      • Luis June 26, 2012 at 11:41 #

        That show you work a red carpet.

        • Luis June 26, 2012 at 11:42 #

          *thats *how

    • Ahot June 26, 2012 at 15:18 #

      lol! they just confirm how freaking hot she´s looking, when they try to find something to complain about. i can´t get over how stunning & classy she looks.

  9. DorianGray June 26, 2012 at 10:14 #

    I love this girl so much and I missed her on the red carpet. Stunning gown, amazing look.

  10. Anita June 26, 2012 at 10:17 #

    Absolutely stunning! Her best imo. BDOTW!

    Can’t wait for the rest of the promo tour!

  11. maria June 26, 2012 at 10:18 #

    I’m speechless! Absolutely AMAZING. And I LOVE LOVE the hair. Best she’s looked maybe ever.

  12. Dan Oliver June 26, 2012 at 10:20 #

    Wow she looks like such a screen siren amazing.

  13. shevelle June 26, 2012 at 10:22 #

    Blake has SHUT IT DOWN- WHAT?!?! BDOTW – signed, sealed and delivered!

  14. Lilu June 26, 2012 at 10:26 #

    First candidate for BDOTW list

  15. Paulo June 26, 2012 at 10:30 #

    I feel that she’s trying wayyy too hard and this look is OTT.

  16. Andreea June 26, 2012 at 10:40 #

    Oh my God !! She looks perfect from head to toe !

  17. Yeliz June 26, 2012 at 10:47 #

    She looks gorgeous, I can’t deny it. But I agree that she’s trying too hard and I also find the roots quite jarring.

  18. Kate June 26, 2012 at 10:49 #

    Smoking hot!

    • Andrea June 27, 2012 at 21:20 #



  19. MEME June 26, 2012 at 11:11 #

    LOVE…. BDOTW contender….

  20. Wizzer June 26, 2012 at 11:14 #

    I think she’s deffo channelling Veronica Lake
    I also think this vamp style is a deliberate polar opposite to the innocent bridal sheath she wore for her last big premiere ‘The Green Lantern’

    • marie June 28, 2012 at 22:03 #

      she was working the innocent bridal look because that coincided with those “pictures” of her leaking out

  21. Jess2 June 26, 2012 at 11:17 #

    This was definitely a WOW moment for me. Amazing old Hollywood glamour for sure, she looks stunning and effortless. Hey styling is perfect!

  22. Lee June 26, 2012 at 11:25 #

    Wow! What a dress! She looks HOT.. My first contender for BDOTW.

  23. ZZ June 26, 2012 at 11:28 #


  24. Shiva June 26, 2012 at 11:40 #

    This might sound harsh but honestly, I’ve never found this girl’s style or presence interesting. ever. And I don’t think that’s going to change. I’m at least happy here that she’s not ‘cheapening’ a ‘classy’ outfit. I’d also be glad if she doesn’t pick the likes of Jil Sander or Celine or Lanvin or ANY of the London designers. ever.
    Now I’m going to browse through your earlier posts of Queen Cate or Thandie or Tilda to cleanse this sighting (God I feel awful :-( FC)
    Having said that (;-p) yes, the look IS working for her

    • JB June 26, 2012 at 18:11 #

      She’s worn Lanvin before and killed it. Sorrryyyyy. In 2010.

  25. Kim June 26, 2012 at 11:45 #

    Wow, she looks incredible, I’ll be remembering this look for the BDOTY poll!

  26. Serena June 26, 2012 at 11:56 #

    She looks gorgeous, but the make-up is way too heavy.

    • june June 26, 2012 at 13:07 #

      + 1

      way too much makeup on a gorgeous girl who doesn’t need it. and the dark roots aren’t helping

  27. M June 26, 2012 at 11:57 #

    Wow!!! Oh!!! Wow!!! What a return to the redcarpet.. SHe looks freaking amazing.. i love her…

  28. Mimi Cracra June 26, 2012 at 12:06 #

    Absolutely gorgeous!!! BDOTW !!!!!!!!!!!!

  29. bm June 26, 2012 at 12:17 #

    She’s out of this world. Really stunning. my 3rd BDOTW-worthy.

  30. mandy June 26, 2012 at 12:30 #

    Bang !! Blake is back !! And I never thought I’d say that cus I never liked her as a FASHIONISTA. My my my my my I can’t love this more ! She looks absolutely amazing !! I’m so happy . Haha

    • Andrea June 27, 2012 at 21:22 #

      couldnt have said it better :)

  31. Zerina June 26, 2012 at 12:35 #

    OMG! My jaw just hit the floor.
    She is perfection from HEAD to toe.
    Love it.

  32. Te June 26, 2012 at 12:52 #

    WOW! this dress is amazing!!
    but it deserved a bigger venue!
    It looks great on her, but.. a movie premiere? poor dress..

  33. Fiona-Brasil June 26, 2012 at 12:59 #

    Breathtaking!She channels old Hollywood with the red lips and the hair a la Veronica Lake!Just perfect!BDOTW winner even without knowing the others…

  34. Allie June 26, 2012 at 13:16 #

    don’t understand why so many people dislike blake!? Think she looks unreal

  35. Jessica June 26, 2012 at 13:20 #

    wow! She looks amazing! Contender for BDOTW for sure !!!

  36. Joan June 26, 2012 at 13:20 #

    Cant believe how stunning she looks! I adore the old hollywood glamour

  37. kane June 26, 2012 at 13:30 #

    I can see the issues people are having with it (overdressed considering the occasion, Blake persona etc), but this blows my mind (and all those thoughts with it)!

  38. CreoleLady June 26, 2012 at 13:39 #

    Why why why the dark roots? Still, definitely a worthy of being a BDOTW contender imo.

  39. dee June 26, 2012 at 13:58 #

    She looks gorgeous. This look reminds me of Amber Heard.

  40. sara June 26, 2012 at 14:02 #

    i think i said for the first time ever ‘WOW’ out loud..and then my mounth dropped before even realizing it was blake!!!LOVE IT!!

    • sara June 26, 2012 at 14:04 #

      p.s.i think the whole look including the hair/makeup is very Amber Heard-esque..but blake is more statuesque so it looks even better on her!

      • sara June 26, 2012 at 14:05 #

        and the earrings are gorgeous!

  41. A June 26, 2012 at 15:20 #

    This is SO gorgeous! Loved the dress before but it looks amazing on her! BDOTW.

  42. Mol June 26, 2012 at 15:30 #

    I’m happy to see Blake back, a perfect va voom moment here, every detail is working (save the roots but that’s minor for me, I’m still enjoying every minute!)

  43. Lisa June 26, 2012 at 15:31 #

    Of course people think Blake looks OTT in this gown for a premiere when Amber Heard, Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Watson, Elizabeth Banks and all the likes have worn gowns for their movie premieres.

    I’m glad she looks this good because I’ve missed her on the redcarpet.

    • Malli June 26, 2012 at 18:08 #

      No offense to Blake, but of course you would pick a gown for something like a Hunger Games or a Harry Potter premiere, given the size and anticipation sorrounging the film, which is why for a premiere like this Blake’s look just screams overdressed and OTT.

      • Lisa June 26, 2012 at 19:23 #

        I’ll give you Emma and Jennifer but Amber Heard wears gowns to her premieres and while Johnny Depp was in The Rum Diary, the movie itself was hardly a commercial film. It is more or less on the same level as Savages, yet people are floored by Amber but find Blake to be too OTT, especially considering that she hasn’t been on the redcarpet for months.

      • Fari June 26, 2012 at 22:20 #

        Lisa, you’ve said it. It’s her night, so why not go with a big bang? she looks amazing!

    • Isai June 26, 2012 at 18:38 #

      Totally agree with you! PERFECTION!

  44. Parvati June 26, 2012 at 15:48 #

    This look could have been amazing if it weren’t for those dark roots.

  45. Lisa June 26, 2012 at 15:54 #

    Wow – BDOTW

  46. Rebecca Z June 26, 2012 at 15:56 #

    I didn’t realize how much I have been missing the Blake controversy! (Not)

    She looks spectacular. The dress is gorgeous and fits her perfectly. Her hair and makeup are definitely old Hollywood glamour and work. I adore her earrings. Perhaps it is not the case with Blake, but many natural blonds have what appear to be dark roots when, in fact, they do not color their hair–in fact, if you look at the model wearing the gown, it is the same.

  47. priyanka June 26, 2012 at 16:01 #

    nothing about this look is surprising aside from the fact that she is wearing neither chanel nor marchesa to a major event. it would have been surprising if she had chosen something more subtle and sophisticated than going full jessica rabbit (and wasting that dress at a movie premiere when it was really worthy of the oscars, golden globes, or a major film festival). i’m sure she’ll win BDOTW, she does look great, but to me it’s just more of the same.

  48. yesaya June 26, 2012 at 16:04 #

    gorgeous! BDOTW CONTENDER!

  49. Taylor June 26, 2012 at 16:07 #

    WOW…what a return. She is killing this look.

  50. fromchi-town June 26, 2012 at 16:07 #

    Oh my good god …. this is just superb. Its jaw droppingly beautiful. BDOTW and maybe BDOTY ???

  51. vivian June 26, 2012 at 16:34 #

    maybe OTT?
    but GORGEOUS!

  52. Mariana June 26, 2012 at 16:38 #

    BDOTW?? BDOTY!!!!

    • sara June 26, 2012 at 16:51 #


  53. Shaina June 26, 2012 at 16:52 #

    This is the best she has ever looked! WOW! Stunning in every way possible. BDOTW worthy, and probably going on my BDOTY list!

  54. amparo June 26, 2012 at 17:01 #

    She looks way better than the model. Stunning!!!

  55. Marko_M June 26, 2012 at 18:27 #

    I’ve missed her and missed her and here she is looking as stunning as ever! Love her from head to toe. Absolutely perfect!

  56. lu June 26, 2012 at 18:38 #

    she looks amaizing, very old holywood ! I`ve never saw her looking so glamorous. Beautiful gown (maybe it is a little too much, but who cares as long as it`s a great look) flawless makeup and fun choise of accesories. BDOTW worthy.

  57. Vidhya June 26, 2012 at 18:42 #

    I came here just to read the comments.. Its funny how Blake can evoke such strong love-hate from people. I like the dress but don’t like how low it sits. Otherwise, its nice. Meh!

  58. Elle June 26, 2012 at 18:53 #

    She looks better with more natural make up and paler skin but overall this is a fantastic look. She’s a total bombshell and knows it. Wish she had worn Gucci though.

  59. PETER June 26, 2012 at 19:29 #

    This is a dress for a higher status actress like Nicole Kidman or Charlize Theron, but at least I am glad she stole it from Jennifer Lopez (who want to monopolize all the Zuhair Murad dresses).

  60. Kaiae June 26, 2012 at 19:46 #

    So true! But then again I highly doubt that ‘subtle’ or ‘understated’ are in Blake’s dictionary. She looks stunning, but so many elements of this look are trying to stand out.

  61. Simon June 26, 2012 at 20:11 #

    OMG. OMG.

    SHE IS STUNNING. Thats perfect to me.

  62. Jones19 June 26, 2012 at 20:20 #

    Love her or hate her you can’t deny that she does high octane glamour like a pro! Like I said in another comment, she’s dressing for the job she wants which is movie star…and not for the job she has which is up and coming starlet.

  63. Cecelia June 26, 2012 at 20:22 #

    Va-Va-Voom! That’s the way to do it. Go, Blake, you are beautiful and you’re rocking this dress. Definitely BDOTW and a contender for BDOTY.

  64. Dhppy June 26, 2012 at 20:58 #

    Whoo boy! Thank goodness there are still starlets like Lively and Heard who aren’t afraid to unleash their outer bombshell.

  65. gabis June 26, 2012 at 21:37 #

    I’m most definitely not as amused by her look as the other readers.
    She looks great, the dress and the styling are gorgeous, but we can cut the effort with a knife. She’s clearly trying too hard to say “hey, i’m back” and “see, that’s why I told Marie Claire that i don’t need a stylist” . Plus, her hair looks awful and I don’t like the golden bracelet.
    Her pictures make me wanna tell her “yes, we can see that you’re matching nails and lips now get over it”.

    • Vera June 26, 2012 at 23:20 #

      +1 You’re absolutely right!

  66. Oscar June 26, 2012 at 22:21 #

    She looks FLAWLESS. BDOTW, for sure.

  67. Amy June 26, 2012 at 22:24 #

    THIS is as good as it gets! Blake nailed it!
    love the whole thing. and no this is not too much for a movie premiere,come on guys we’ve seen many looks like this one for movie premieres : hunger games tour,Spiderman,Rum Diary, Transformers and the list goes on.
    I’m not always fan of Blake’s red carpet style but this is a BDOTW contender!

  68. Bec June 26, 2012 at 22:45 #

    90 comments! Only Blake… 😉

  69. lila June 27, 2012 at 01:33 #

    Oh, for God’s sake, she’s just trying to impress the Gucci crew. Remember this :“In conceiving this fragrance I was inspired by timeless Hollywood glamour and the iconic leading ladies of Hollywood’s golden era. Blake’s unique style and charisma brings that allure to life in a very contemporary way.”

    • Fashion Critic June 27, 2012 at 06:10 #

      great comment.

    GORGEOUS!! now THIS is what i call a bombshell. sexy,gorgeous,sultry- only Blake could deliver this kind of punch! (and stir up so much controversy on top of it lol).

  71. roxana June 27, 2012 at 07:31 #

    OMG!!!! i think this is one of the best dresses of the year!!!! STUNNING!!!

  72. Zee June 27, 2012 at 10:34 #

    This is gonna be in my BDOTY list. Stunning.

  73. Burcu June 27, 2012 at 12:14 #

    Great turn on red carpet.She looks perfect from head to toes.I dont understand how you found hair and make up cheap,really make me remember ex hollywood stars!!!and this dress is one of my favorite from the couture 2012 collections,happy to see on her

  74. Andrea June 27, 2012 at 21:27 #

    She looks drop dead gorgeous!

  75. MoxieSue June 27, 2012 at 21:31 #

    OTT for a premiere, but still stunning.

  76. Ericka June 27, 2012 at 22:35 #

    I am generally not a huge Blake fan but I must admit she is absolutely killing it here. I can find no fault.

  77. robbie June 28, 2012 at 12:54 #

    trying way too hard at the femme fatale look and failing. the dress is divine but deserves much better than this.

  78. Annel June 28, 2012 at 22:55 #

    Veronica Lake!? She looks like her! It’s pure perfection!

  79. Joane July 8, 2012 at 12:43 #

    Sorry, but i have to ask, did anyone knows were i can buy this dress? Or other dress similar?

    BTW: She looks stunning!

    • Fashion Critic July 8, 2012 at 14:48 #

      Contact Zuhair Murad

  80. Christopher Teoh Jing Xiang August 12, 2012 at 16:38 #

    Should we say that Blake Lively is our perfect fashion goddess?? The Gossip Girl stunner looks absolutely breathtaking by channeling 1920s siren in a two-toned striped evening gown by Zuhair Murad!! Are you feel drunken with the mesmerizing pattern of the corset taffeta?? She pairs it well with romantic side swept curls and bold red lips!! We adore her red nails and gold bow-shaped bracelet!! Absolute perfection and tres magnifique!! Viva La Blake!!!
