Blake Lively In Chanel Couture – Chanel’s Fine Jewelry 80th Anniversary Celebration

Even though Blake Lively is now known as a Gucci girl, the ‘Gossip Girl’ actress was one of the many stars invited to the celebration of Chanel Fine Jewelry’s 80th anniversary of the ‘Bijoux De Diamants’ collection created by Gabrielle Chanel in New York City yesterday evening.

The actress opted for a look from the Chanel Fall 2012 Couture collection.

I’m sure that some of you are rolling your eyes that she picked one of the few looks with a plunging neckline, but this silver-and-rose pink dress with jewel accents on the empire waist and shoulders is a perfect look for the blonde actress.

It’s both sexy and sophisticated, but those those creases at the back are a huge shame.

Mrs Reynolds opted for metallic pewter Christian Louboutin pumps, which considering her sizeable shoe closet are a tad disappointing.

Side-swept glossy blonde tresses and a pink lip colour completed her look.

    I only like the hairstyle.

    She looks lovely, it’s a shame about the creases on the dress. If there was one thing I would perhaps change would be to show more of the underlying light layer of the dress around the shoulder and chest area as seen on the runway

    she looks absolutely gorgeous.

    How come a Chanel dress look so budget to me?

    • Erin October 10, 2012 at 13:18 #

      I agree. I can’t believe this is couture. It looks so cheap.

      • Christine October 10, 2012 at 14:47 #

        It looks like a knock off. Very cheap looking.

      • Francesca October 10, 2012 at 16:56 #

        I can’t believe it either. The first thing I thought was that the fabric made it look very cheap (and the cut didn’t help).Boring

        • Pati October 10, 2012 at 18:58 #

          Agreed. It really does look cheap. And the shoes are disaster.

    • Hannah October 10, 2012 at 20:33 #

      That was my instict. I thought that on the runway it looks cheap, on Blake it looks cheap & tacky.

  5. Anna October 10, 2012 at 12:43 #

    Her predictability is snooze worthy! Boring dress with a predictable cut and it looks like a nightgown on her. And it looks like the dress my friend made when she was 18 at school. Blake always manages to cheapen Chanel.

    And the shoes don’t go at all with this look. Sandals would have been much better.

    And lastly, why is she still hiding her wedding band an engagement ring? We’ve already seen them!

    horribly horrendous dress- dislike the material as well as the shape- it lookss unfinished

    • mm October 10, 2012 at 14:32 #

      I agree, it looks cheap

    • Hannah October 11, 2012 at 14:43 #

      It looks like a project runway 24 hour challenge dress.

      • Lily October 12, 2012 at 07:49 #

        haha,agree

  7. dee October 10, 2012 at 13:53 #

    It is a nice dress, shame about the creases.

  8. rebecca o October 10, 2012 at 14:14 #

    I like this far more that what she normally wears. She looks subtle even with the low neckline.

  9. Amy October 10, 2012 at 14:22 #

    the dress is okay but the shoes are snoozeville

  10. rafael October 10, 2012 at 15:19 #

    I like the dress but she doesnt pull it off; it’s just looks meh, blah… BORING

  11. priyanka October 10, 2012 at 15:46 #

    it seems like the dress was shortened or altered in someway at the bottom that makes it look odd in comparison to the flowiness on the runway. i think the dress would be hard for most people to pull off, but the styling (hair, shoes) doesn’t really help her here.

  12. Gwyn October 10, 2012 at 15:49 #

    Chanel Couture!?! Oh lord, everthing does look so cheap on her

  13. Anj October 10, 2012 at 16:39 #

    This looks like a low-budget prom dress.

  14. Anita October 10, 2012 at 17:31 #

    I think she looks fine, but the fabric is a whole different story.
    Even on the runway it the fabric looks so cheap What the hell is it? Some type of Sateen! Those types of fabric always always crease easily and look budget/prom like.

    Although this isnt as bad as Michelle Dockereys emmy abomination; this suffers from the same issues. Plus in some universe they were both deemed “couture”.

  15. Noemi October 10, 2012 at 17:55 #

    Well at least she didn’t have to change once at home, she was already wearing a nightgown; she only had to take off those wrong shoes.

  16. Joan October 10, 2012 at 18:08 #

    Lovely as always!

  17. sara October 10, 2012 at 19:03 #

    I agree that the fabric looks cheap and the dress doesn’t do anything for her. Despite the plunging neckline, it is not figure flattering from the back – maybe because of the fabric or the length? And it also looks like she’s going out of her way to keep her ring concealed with her hands in her pockets making her look wider. Sweety, everyone knows your engaged either show the ring with pride or just don’t wear it rather than keeping your hands in your pockets down the red carpet!

  18. Wizzer October 10, 2012 at 19:22 #

    It looks equally bad on the runway imo.

  19. Jones19 October 10, 2012 at 20:56 #

    I don’t like this look. This color makes her look washed out, she should have gone for a stronger lip.

  20. Yeliz October 10, 2012 at 21:17 #

    I think she looks great from the ankles up. Shame about the shoes.

  21. Tina October 10, 2012 at 21:56 #

    To be honest I’m just not a fan of her style. She’s pretty, yes, but almost everything she wears screams tacky to me.

  22. MEME October 11, 2012 at 05:02 #

    I think she actually put this together…. not her stylist…

  23. EmmaWoodhouse October 11, 2012 at 21:58 #

    I don’t like the dress. Too lowcut, odd lentgh, the side panels are odd and the fabric (especially with the creases) looks cheap. Neck up she’s glowing, at least.

  24. Sonia October 14, 2012 at 17:04 #

    How can you avoid the creases? Some fabrics (linen etc) do that when you sit in the car. I’m curious. Is there a purse size hand-held steamer? Do you sit a particular way? Help!
