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.

    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

      1. Francesca

        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

  2. Anna

    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!

    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.

  4. Anita

    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”.

  5. Noemi

    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.

  6. sara

    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!

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

  8. Tina

    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.

  9. EmmaWoodhouse

    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.

  10. Sonia

    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!
