Blake Lively’s tacky, trashy style tops Vogue’s best dressed list


Vogue Magazine (American) has just released their “Best Dressed of 2010” list, and it is… not good. Some of the choices are completely obvious, some are completely wrong, and some are completely dumb. From what I understand, this is going to be a “special issue” – usually they put their best-dressed list in the December or January issue, but this is going to be a separate thing. I hope it gets sent to subscribers (hello!). Anyway, one of the biggest wrong/dumb choices was to put Blake Lively’s jacked tittays on the cover of the special issue. Now, is Blake a pretty girl? I think so. Is she a good dresser? It’s hit-or-miss, and more often than not, her style is just kind of trashy and tacky. But why put her jacked tittay on the COVER?!? Ugh. Here’s a little more about the rationale “behind the tittay”.

The January issue of Vogue has historically been dedicated to the best dressed women of the year; it is the issue where we take stock and anoint those whose sartorial skills warrant some recognition.

“Inevitably, we’re overflowing with ideas, photos, and candidates—and there just isn’t room for all of it,” explains Vogue Style Director Alexandra Kotur. “So this year, we decided to create a special issue devoted just to the best dressed.”

Kotur eagerly took on the role of issue editor, and the final product not only names the best dressed of the year and the decade but also boasts an exclusive interview with Natalia Vodianova, a look at the chicest couples, and an insider’s guide to the top shopping, fitness, and beauty in America. The issue, which is Vogue’s very first special edition and sure to be a collector’s item, was months in the making and goes on sale at newsstands today for a limited time.

    Blake is a hottie!

  2. devilgirl says:

    I know I will get hell for this, but I think Michelle Obama dresses horribly. The clothes never flatter her, and for a tall woman, she is terribly short waisted, and she always wears things that cut her dreadfully.

  3. deinemudda says:

    her stylist should be on the cover!

  4. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Not the best list…I love Lady Gaga and Michelle Obama (gotta rep my city), and SJP. Blake is adorable and I can see how she was the best dressed this red carpet season. I can’t think of anyone who really deserves the title. So Blake can have it. I can’t think of anyone who wowed me this season. Hmmmmmm…I am sure people had moments but Blake was consistently well dressed and less unimpressive.

  5. scotchy says:

    oh good lord, this is all kinds of wrong.

  6. jen says:

    How much longer are they going to try & convince us that Michelle Obama is stylish?

    They should have saved this list for the April Fool’s edition.

  7. Cheyenne says:

    I’ve said for ages that Vogue hit the skids when Anna Wintour took over, but Jesus please us — Lady Gaga?!!?

  8. gabs says:


    Hmm what about natalie portman or anne hathaway or scarjo? I do not want biel representing my country ever

  9. Petra X says:

    Those pics were hilarious. Oh dear.

  10. Gabriela says:

    OK, so apparently Lady GaGa is one of the best dressed.
    How can we possibly give this list some credibility?

  11. Xx says:

    Emma Watson and Anne Hathaway should be on the list. hope they are.

  12. kiki says:

    I have to agree with the comments about Michelle Obama. Some of her inaugural dresses were lovely but it’s been all downhill from there. She needs to get some help with dressing for her figure.

    I love Blake and always look forward to seeing what she’s wearing. Not everything works, but it’s always interesting. I find most of her outfits neither tacky nor trashy. I’m not understanding the “jacked up tittays” thing at all. Kaiser, you seem to be obsessed with Blake’s boobs.

  13. Rianna says:

    If they included Rachel Bilson or Katie Holmes, it will send me over the edge.

  14. dread pirate cuervo says:

    On the home page, the picture is cropped to say “Special Ed.” LOL.

  15. jover says:

    Yes cheyenne everyone agrees with you that Anne Wintour has been a disaster – she’s turned Vogue into a glossy version of People or Us. If you want to see Vogue in its glory days, go on Youtube and type Vogue covers 40s – 70s todays covers and photos pale in comparison;
    Natalie Vodianova and Liya Kebede are much better than Blake and Caca; but they are not the celebs favored by today’s vogue; and btw, could they have found more unflattering photos – the pic of blake looks like they shrunk her body and inflated her head – odd and weird and not good.

  16. mystified says:

    I’ve gotta agree with Anglelina, Jen and Kiki. Michelle Obama is not a very good dresser considering her wealth and position. I guess she must have too many yes people around her to tell her that she can’t actually pull off some of those unflattering outfits that she wears. My pet peeve is that she is as short-waisted as I am, but she keeps wearing those really unflattering thick belts.

    I looooove that picture of Jessica Biel. I just printed it out. I was bummed out about how I was having a super bad hair day and had to go out in public anyhow. Then I saw Jessica’s picture and her hair looks every bit as bad as mine does today, and she’s so much younger and wealthier. Thank you for giving me my self esteem back! I can face the world now.

  17. guesty says:

    ita with the other posters about the first lady’s style. ugh.

    blake lively is so understated…think that’s why she usually looks good. exception being the ‘christmas tree skirt’. (dlisted) lol!

  18. liz says:

    Enough with this Blake girl. If she’s pretty, then great, she got what she very well paid for, excellent. Girl can’t act and she better start her own clothing line or something, cause being well dressed doesn’t keep you on Vogue covers for long.

  19. Linda says:

    that’s the best ever that I’ve seen SJP! That is a fantastic outfit!

  20. bros says:

    when is the last time a first lady’s style was memorable or even commented on, aside from Jackie O? at least michelle takes risks and had an identifiable style and is commented on. cant say the same about laura bush. i cant remember anything she ever wore.

  21. Chelle says:

    Carey, GaGa and Blake are the only ones who probably deserve to be on the list since their looks are youthful and interesting for most of the year. I think its just based on who’s more popular this year, and there’s some butt kissing here with Mrs. Obama and SJP on the list, I remember Blake was the only girl who made Wintour smile, so I guess thats her muse…

  22. December says:

    God, I really hate Anna Wintour. She obviously plays favorites with celebrities, like choosing Blake Lively over Kristen Stewart, simply because Kristen didn’t want to talk about certain things in the interview, and also because Blake probably does a lot of ass kissing to Anna.

    If Anna Wintour wasn’t the editor, you would have never seen Blake Lively on the cover of Vogue. Maybe Teen Vogue, but Vogue? Never.

    This is my opinion, but I just feel Anna’s cheapened Vogue. Sorry, but before Anna Wintour became editor, Vogue was very selective on which female celebrity would be on the cover, and they hardly would have the same celebs on so many times. They had some variety, and usually it was the A-List celebs, and usually the ones with good fashion sense. Now you get all these B and sometimes C-listers, with interviews that a tabloid magazine would produce.

    Vogue was and should be a classy magazine. After all, all the clothes they advertise you should buy are the ones most normal women could never afford. Yet, they keep using the same people over and over, and have pushed the interesting and the true glamorous people aside.

    Sorry for the rant, but I really used to like Vogue. That is, until Miss Anna Wintour came along.

  23. danielle says:

    I don’t agree with Biel, Lively, or Jolie. Sounds like a bad list. Angelina Jolie?! Beautiful yes – good dresser – NO!

  24. eleni says:

    lady gaga? really?

  25. Ame says:

    I hate boobs legsly, All I know is that I prefer to be the clever hooker and not that stupid bitch.

  26. normades says:

    FIRE ANNA WINTOUR!!!!! She has no style and plays favorites. Carine Roitfeld from Vogue France or Grace Coddigton should take over. They have style and talent. Anna has nothing!

  27. C-DUB says:

    Anna Wintour is fabulous. She can make a designer and can influence a whole fashion season.

    Michelle Obama is fabulous. Thanks for bringing the kitten heel back. I may not be in love her every part of every outfit she has worn but she always has something that I must have.

    I will give it up to Blake for not using a stylist for own personal style but other than that…

  28. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Uh Danielle, Angelina isn’t on the list. LOL

  29. Az says:

    Well, it’s official. The Wintour of everyone’s discontent is insane.

  30. Cheyenne says:

    @jover, December and normades: I remember Vogue back in the day when the covers used to be so gorgeous you could cut them out and frame them. Now I go into the magazine store and retch when I see them. I’ve seen better covers on Women’s Day.

    I still remember the September issue of 2007 or 2008 when they ran Keira Knightly on the cover. They had her dressed in something that looked like a pair of curtains from Wal-Mart and a cheap-looking patent leather belt (that outfit probably cost upwards of $5,000 and it looked like 59 cents), and a haircut that looked like somebody did a number on her head with a weed-whacker. I canceled my subscription behind that one.

  31. Kim says:

    Kotur must be smoking crack!!!

    Best dressed Blake Lively?? Michelle Obama??? Lady gaga?? When did meat become fashion?? Shock and awe does NOT always mean fashion. What a terrible list.

    I can not believe Anna Wintour oked this issue?!

    Sadly, obviously Vogue has lost its touch.

  32. Kim says:

    Michelle Obama is the WORST dresser.

    Personally i dont think that matters when a Presidents wife. I think there are far more important things for her to care about than her wardrobe so if she purposely didnt care more power to her BUT she does care. She cares tremendously & tries to dress nice but fails miserably.

    No matter how much we love Michelle you have to be honest that she cant dress for beans.

    Someone was looking for higher readership & not staying true to the magazine. Shame.

  33. Kim says:

    HUM i wonder how much Blake paid for this honor!

    Plleeaaassee. She looks like a line backer wearing his moms clothes and will someone please tell her to stand up straight!

  34. Kim says:

    Cheyenne u r so right. To bad. Vogue USED to be the Bible of fashion and now its trash.

  35. dj says:

    This list is ridiculous!

  36. Michael says:

    michelle obama is far from being a fashionista

  37. Louwho says:

    I’m sorry, but Angelina Jolie? Her style sucks the big one.

  38. Amy says:

    Seriously, that Blake Lively chick must be banging someone in power because she is sooo average looking in the face and has zero talent. I don’t get it! Someone explain it to me! Gah.

  39. neelyo says:

    Geez, look at Blake Lively’s arm on the cover! I’m sure it’s partly photoshop but look at what a bobblehead she’s become in the picture where she’s wearing the fancy Sizzler waitress outfit. She’s lost too much weight.

  40. Cheyenne says:

    @Kim and Michael: Michelle Obama has hits and misses. But she does need a stylist.

  41. Kricket says:

    ew. michelle obama?! really?

  42. Ruffian9 says:

    Wintour has lost her touch…and Vogue is paying for it. Blake has a slammin’ bod. She shows of her tits a lot…that’s not fashion. Marion is legit, but the rest? Biel? Really? Gaga dresses for shock. How about Diane Kruger, Cate Blanchette? Anne Hathaway? Emma Watson?

  43. Siren6 says:

    The first four on the list are debatable.

    Honestly, I dont get the whole Blake Lively thing. She’s about as interesting as Jessica Biel/plain toast.

  44. Kat says:

    Someone needs to break Nuclear Wintour of her Gossip Girl addiction. Blake Lively on the cover? Fail. Where’s Anne Hathaway in that list? Reese Witherspoon? Dita Von Teese? Anyone of those ladies would be better than some tv starlet from a fading soap.

  45. Kimberly says:

    Blake is a shitty dresser who needs to fire her stylists. Her look is generic and bland. Her stylists pisses me off because she’s really beautiful, but doesn’t know shit about dressing. Some actual originality would be nice since that’s the looks she’s trying to impress us with.

  46. Persistent Cat says:

    I love how Blake looks and dresses.

  47. Taurus says:

    I do not understand the fascination with Blake Lively! She’s unnatractive and she dresses terribly! To top it off, she can’t act to save her life!
    Now on to our First Lady, can someone please get her a decent stylist. She looks awful!

  48. heathen says:

    @devilgirl — I gotta say I agree with you and am glad you said it first. Just because Michelle Obama is a good first lady and/or we like her as a person, doesn’t mean she dresses well. I think she dresses very “dowdy” — I know she is the first lady, so she can’t be all sexy, but “best dressed” — no way, imo.

  49. DeeVine says:

    I love Blake’s style on Gossip girl, not sure about her real style, but she can pull off a lot of looks that normal people cant carry. That to me means style. It is easy for a rich person to put on designer clothes and look good. Blake looks good with all sorts of layering, high street and designer mix. Just like Alexa Chung. Which is great for inspiration for people like me who don’t have thousands to spend on designer clothes.

    Angelina Jolie? Not a stylish bone in her body. Empress Zahara should be on the list instead!

  50. Liana says:

    Gah. I don’t see the appeal of Blake Lively, either. I don’t think she’s that attractive (though I do envy her body, fake boobs aside) and I can’t stand 90% of what she wears. Where is Anne Hathaway on that list?

  51. Stephanie says:

    The only thing missing is Katy Perry & her Sesame Street getup.

  52. animac says:

    jessica biel in this picture will remain in history… simply amazing..

  53. sunshine says:

    sorry to disagree but in no way is Blake Lively trashy!! the way she dresses and carries herself is very classy. the things she wears for photo shoots are another question but when it comes to dressing for events she is probably one of the best dressed on the red carpet.

  54. Newbie says:

    Have to agree that Marion is THE screen goddess. And while Jessica Biel is annoying, she looks LOVELY in that dress.

  55. onebabe says:

    this list is a bit of a hit and miss
    i dont think people like jessica beil etc should be on this list just because they had only one or 2 great outfits this year

    i think its so clever to put someone like blake lively on the cover and as ‘the bombshell’ she definitely earnt that title and she is one of the few celebrities with curves! why encourage the skinny stick thin bodies! they look disgusting

    anyway blake livelys style has grown immensely! i dont think ANYONE should be criticizing herbecause she has a great body or her style used to be crap! everyone went through some ugly style moment at one stage of their lives

    btw kristen stewart is a crap actress with only one emotion and her style is crap there simply is no style there she just looks like shes decided to go out in what she slept in. and shes not a nice person,

  56. Tina says:

    Blake is white trash.
