Blake Lively In Gucci – Chime for Change One-Year Anniversary Event

Blake Lively In Gucci - Chime for Change One-Year Anniversary Even

Blake Lively attended an event to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Chime for Change hosted by Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini at the Gucci Fifth Avenue boutique on Tuesday (June 3) in New York City.

Once again I’m looking at Blake and wondering what happened, and that’s hard for me to say considering she’s my girl.

This Gucci Fall 2014 dress is all wrong for her, feeling a tad twee and too much up front.

Let’s start with the colour. I’m not a fan of this shade of mustard against her skin tone, nor am I a fan of the leather trims.

The keyhole. I know this will be the deal breaker for most (especially those who often ask Blake to pick boobs or legs, and here she opted for both), and I would agree.

And don’t even get me started on the creases.

The only things I would save from this look are the gold glitter Christian Louboutin pumps and her Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Blake Lively In Michael Kors – 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards

Blake Lively In Michael Kors  - 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards

Blake Lively attended the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards held at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center on Monday (June 2) in New York City.

As one of the major players at this event, I was somewhat disappointed by her look.

Her Michael Kors Resort 2015 sequinned dress with a scalloped hemline doesn’t quite live up to the glamour of the event.

The barbarella ‘do and clunky Casadei pink suede pumps also get a resounding thumbs down from me, as the styling feels a bit too cheesy for my liking.

It’s like her mojo was left on the red carpet at Cannes.

Lorraine Schwartz diamond hoops and an armful of Lorraine Schwartz natural wood and diamond bangles completed her look.

Blake Lively In Vionnet – L’Oreal Photocall

Blake Lively In Vionnet - L'Oreal Photocall

On Sunday (May 18) Blake Lively attended a L’Oreal photocall in her role as ambassador for the brand during the 67th Cannes Film Festival.

Wearing a summery look, the actress donned a Vionnet white jersey T-shirt styled with an aqua-green pleated skirt with a front slit she made good use of.

Via the slit we get to see her striking footwear.

I adore these Sophia Webster ‘Cleo’ orange pumps which feature a black and white butterfly detail at the heel; you may remember we saw these beauties on Nina Dobrev back in January .

I would’ve loved to have seen a picture of her standing; I’m sure her pose would’ve ensured the shoes and slit were firmly on display.

Get The Look: Blake Lively’s Cannes Couture Makeup

10329319_699044330157287_4386331019035586774_n

L’Oréal Paris ambassador, Blake Lively made her debut on the Cannes red carpet wearing a gorgeous burgundy Gucci Première gown, followed by two more stunning looks by Chanel Couture and Gucci Première again.

Here’s how to get her look. The actress wore a shimmering gunmetal rendition of the smokey eye look with a smouldering finish. I just loved her flawless base, lush lashes and sultry eyeliner. So take your beauty cues from Blake and master her bold smokey eye by applying the below.

Start by applying an eye makeup primer to your eyelids for long-lasting coverage. Follow by covering your eyelids and inner corners of your eyes with a base coat that matches your skin tone which will make blending your colours easier.

Using a small eyeshadow blending brush apply a deep gunmetal shade at the corners and along the lower lashline, blending along the way. It’s important to apply it as close to the lash line as possible – applying it to the edges is key to getting the perfect result.

Using a kohl pencil, line your upper and lower lashline while using a smudge brush to smudge the corners accentuating the shape of your eyes.

Apply two or three generous coats of mascara for an extra dramatic look.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Blake Lively in Gucci Première, Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé, Ryan Reynolds in Gucci & Benedict Cumberbatch in Ralph Lauren

BDOTW Cannes

With so much going on this weekend I almost forgot to announce who was best dressed of the week.

Well, it was a two-way tie between Blake Lively in Gucci Première and Blake Lively in Gucci Première. While I believed her opening ceremony gown was the better of the two, it would appear you guys loved them both equally.

My choice was the great Cate Blanchett in Armani Privé. What can I say; it’s a match made in fashion heaven.

When it came to the fellas, you gave Ryan Reynolds in Gucci the top honour this week. I, on the other hand, was swept away by Benedict Cumberbatch in his impeccable Ralph Lauren Black Label suit.

Blake Lively In Gucci Première & Ryan Reynolds In Gucci – ‘Captives’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

"The Captive" Premiere - The 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Just as we hoped, Blake Lively joined husband Ryan Reynolds on the red carpet for the premiere of his latest movie ‘Captives’ during Cannes Film Festival this evening (May 16) in Cannes, France.

Working black and white in unison, the couple blew me away.

She wore a Gucci Première black and white silk crepe fifties-inspired strapless gown featuring a full skirt and a dramatic train, while he wore Gucci black satin peak lapel one-button Signoria tuxedo with a white evening shirt, white satin bowtie, black silk cummerbund and white leather laceups.

While I prefer Blake’s first Gucci Première gown, I don’t think she has ever looked more beautiful than she did tonight. I have goosebumps on my goosebumps.

It’s like looking at a couple from Hollywood’s golden age, they complemented each other so well.

Blake wore over 180 cts in Lorraine Schwartz diamonds including 20 ct diamond studs, two diamond necklaces, a natural pearl and unheated ruby and diamond bracelet and her own Lorraine Schwartz pink diamond engagement ring.

Ryan wore a pink gold ‘Octo’ Bulgari watch with black alligator strap.
