Blake Lively in yellow Oscar de la Renta at ballet gala: lovely or tedious?

American Ballet Theatre Spring 2017 Gala

Blake Lively attended the American Ballet Theatre Spring 2017 Gala last night and as you can see, she’s a wilting wallflower who never wants to get attention for how she dresses. Wait, what? HOW DARE YOU. How dare you talk about her style when you should be talking about… something else. Ballet or something. This neon dress is by Oscar de la Renta. Yellows are so difficult for most women to pull off, but this looks nice on her. I hope she doesn’t scream at me or other people for talking about what she’s wearing.

In other Blake news, as we discussed in the links last week, Blake got cast in a new movie and it sounds… um, interesting. The movie is called Bruised and Blake will play “Jackie, a single mother working two jobs and a disgraced MMA fighter who has been up against the ropes her entire life. When the authorities threaten to take her young son away from her, she must get back in the cage for one last chance to fight for redemption and give her son the life she always wanted.” This role just screams “Blake Lively,” right? Then again, I can’t figure out who I would have cast. Michelle Rodriguez? Gal Gadot? Archie Panjabi? But no, they just went with the first blonde they saw.

From the same event, here’s Hilary Rhoda in Monique Lhuillier. Eh. It could have been cute, but it ended up really boring.

Nicky Hilton in Oscar de la Renta. I think this is really cute?

Katie Holmes in Zac Posen. This would be really great with just a few adjustments. Like, instead of a “boob flap,” just make the top part a structured bodice. And then the whole look is amazing.

    Her dress looks like a highlighter exploded, yuck.

  2. Alleycat says:

    The style of that dress is just really unflattering for Blake. Katie Holmes looks cute!

  3. Maum says:

    Yes Katie looks the best of all of them.

    Blake’s dress is hideous in colour and bodice design. It looks like a failed Westwood.

  4. sun says:

    that yellow would look amazing on someone with darker skin

  5. WhichWitch says:

    Bahahaha neon canary as an MMA fighter!

    Why would they cast Gal Gadot when Gal didn’t even bother to bulk up for Wonder Woman? From what I can tell, Blake looks like she is getting bigger for the role and will probably start bulking up soon . As I said in the comments section when it was announced, Blake was most likely chosen because she is a client of WME who also own UFC. So the connections are all there and they can get one of their own fighters to train Blake. I think she looks fine here. I’m not usually a fan of bright colors like this, but she pulls it off.

      Blake never lost all the babyweight from her last pregnancy. No shame, of course, this is just how she looks now.

    • Diana says:

      Bulking up aside, Gal is a terrible actress. Are we gonna cast her in stuff now just because she not blonde or because she “bulked up” for WW?

    ugly as hell

  8. minx says:

    Why have that fabric gathered right at Blake’s hip? It’s not flattering for anybody. The color is bad on her and it’s too much boobage.
    I do love Katie Holmes’ whole look! The others, meh.

  9. NeoCleo says:

    The yellow is awful on her. Do not like.

    • Ankhel says:

      Would be better with a stronger lip and hair that doesn’t look like mine does – in the shower.

    aaaaaaaaah, kaiser! seriously? katie looks she’s wearing the 10 dollar drapes in the bin at giant tiger. that sheen is just….(frantically scrambling to find my eye balls on the couch, where they fell out at seeing that sheen…that sheen…) so. very. no.
    the structure of the dress is nice, and yes say goodbye to the boob flap.
    but the sheeeeeeeeeeeeen (did i mention the sheen yet)…..

  11. Who ARE These People? says:

    Katie Holmes is really maturing into a lovely woman who dresses well.

  12. annie says:

    katie and the dress are really lovely, she is glowing lately and brimming with confidence. something good is going on in her life.

  13. bella says:

    I like all of them, but I love Monique Lhuillier on Hillary Rhoda as I think she is just gorgeous!

  14. Pandy says:

    Blake’s dress looks like a sarong over a one piece. Good grief. I do like Hillary and Katie’s dresses. Nicky’s not so much.
