Blake Lively In Ralph Lauren - Careers In Film Workshop

Blake Lively was one of the guest speakers at the Careers in Film workshop on Friday, an event hosted by the First Lady, Michelle Obama, in the White House’s East Room in Washington D.C.

The actress wore a look from the ballerina-inspired Ralph Lauren Resort 2014 collection. Staying true to the original styling, Blake wore the black silk dress with its matching long-sleeved leather jacket, but swapped the black shoes (as seen on the runway) for a pair of gold Christian Louboutin pumps with black polka dots.

She complemented her dark dress with fresh-faced makeup and a sleek ponytail.

While she didn’t necessarily abstain from showing some skin — at a film symposium held for high school students at the White House, no less — I think she executed the look in a very tasteful, polished way.
