Blake Lively in Dolce & Gabbana at ‘The Rhythm Section’ NY premiere: gorgeous?

"The Rhythm Section" New York Screening

At this point, we can go months without seeing Blake Lively or hearing anything about her. She’s now the mother of three young children (she gave birth to their third last year) and I think she and Ryan Reynolds spend most of their time in Canada or out in their suburban/country home, away from New York and LA. So we only really see her when she’s got something to promote, which is happening right now. Blake’s new film is called The Rhythm Section and the trailers for it are… not great? It doesn’t look like a terrible movie, per se, it just looks super-derivative of the Bourne franchise. But hey, dudes get to star in derivative action-adventure movies all the time, why not ladies?

Anyway, here are some photos from the premiere and from her promotion this week. Blake wore Dolce & Gabbana to the premiere – a lush black velvet gown with knee-high boots. The necklace is Lorraine Schwartz, who – I’m just going from memory – also designed Blake’s engagement ring, right? I love the necklace, honestly, and that one emerald. I do feel like the whole look together is a bit too much though? But she looks lovely. And look at the Hot Young Pope Jude Law!

Other photos from Blake’s promotion – I don’t have the ID on these looks, but I do enjoy her promotional fashion shows. She’s telling us that 2020 is all about BOOTS and GLOVES. Let’s take this Big Glove Energy with us into February. Also: that pink trench is too busy, right?

    Nope. Too much going on, as per usual with her.

  2. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Nah the film looks terrible. And she’s doing a horrible British accent in it as well.
    She looks nice here though. She still has some fullness from having her last baby and it looks great on her.

    • Lou says:

      I saw the trailer over the weekend and did a full body cringe when I realized she was attempting a British accent…

    • Ravensdaughter says:

      Is she wearing darker makeup? Darker hair? Maybe the change is the post-baby body, which I agree looks great on her!

    • Elisa says:

      I agree, she looks great. Also, the gloves are hideous. :)

    • Still_Sarah says:

      Well, the novel that this is based on was great. I’d be curious to see how much is changed from the book.

  3. Normades says:

    I miss the days when Blake was a baller and left Leo’s ass. That said she would have made a terrific Hollywood wife for him but me thinks she wasn’t going to look the other way at his wolf pack shenanigans. Something definitely went down though in Australia. Any theories?

    • Kimmy says:

      For real! That was the most INTERESTING Blake Lively has ever been. That was amazing gossip!

      She’s like vanilla pudding for me, who occasionally wears pretty things, but most of the time over does it. She’s harmless. 🤷‍♀️

    • Meg says:

      I remember her saying on letterman during her first appearance on his show that she grew up with a crush on him and leo and the next thing I knew I saw pictures of her taking pictures of leo out somewhere together. Right away I wondered did he or his friends hear her say this on letterman and bring it to Leo’s attention?

  4. Ka Sal says:

    What does Blake do…besides wearing clothes

    • Jegede says:

      She starred in a movie (2 yrs ago?) – A Simple Favor

      And is currently promoting her latest movie.

      • lucy2 says:

        A Simple Favor was really good, and she was good in it. I wasn’t much of a fan of her earlier stuff, but that was a good role for her.

        She had 3 kids in like 5 years, so I think she’s been plenty busy.

    • Some chick says:

      Stars in Woody Allen movies and cosplays Plantation Barbie. D&G is right on brand.

      • Keekee says:

        whatever happened to her lifestyle brand wasn’t she suppose to be the next Goop?

      • lucy2 says:

        I think it folded after about a year. Shockingly most people weren’t on board with a California woman romanticizing the old South.

      • Meg says:

        Whew. Spot on

      • Meg says:

        Given her tactlessness like you described it always struck me as odd that she’s still close friends with the sisterhood of the traveling pants castmates as they seem much more socially engaged and interested than Blake who seems lazy in that regard IMO. I can see being casual friends but they seem closer than that to me after all these years

    • Wilady says:

      She’s also a parent? And clearly made a movie.

    • MellyMel says:

      Be a mom and wife and works as an actress, likes she’s been doing since she was a kid…what do you do?

  5. Jegede says:

    I ❤ Jude Law….but those trousers need prayers!

  6. BANANIE says:

    I am really against the tall boots on red carpets when the dresses aren’t long sleeve. I think it jacks with the proportions.

  7. Yamayo says:

    It looks like something Joan Collins would wear!

    And from the other pictures, all of it, and not just the first dress.

  8. Lurker says:

    Maybe it’s time she hires a stylist.

  9. Originaltessa says:

    I mean, she is gorgeous. Her clothes? Almost never. Especially not here.

  10. Jake says:

    Did Jude Law forget to wear a suit and they just gave him whatever was in the Lost & Found box?

  11. T says:

    She’s a beautiful woman, but it seems like her and/or her stylist just don’t know how to dress her. It’s hard to make a gorgeous woman look this bad. Also, it’s perfectly natural and normal for women’s bodies to change after having kids, so this might be the rest of that/they’re still trying to figure out her best looks.

    • brinibini says:

      She dresses herself. She says she doesn’t need a stylist, even though she clearly does. Playing a fashionista on a teen drama for a few years doesn’t turn you into a fashion expert

    • MellyMel says:

      Yeah, she famously doesn’t have a stylist. Sometimes it works, sometimes not.

  12. Other Renee says:

    Gloves and boots in all three outfits? No. Just no. Plus the gloves look ridiculous period.

  13. Laura says:

    Seeing her look gorgeous and curvaceous AF is making me feel better about my post partum body. I recently won some photography awards, and when I saw myself in the photos from the event I was like “oof,” even though I had only given birth 3.5 months ago and should be nicer to myself.

    • Spicecake38 says:

      Definitely be nicer to yourself,I’m sure you’re beautiful,you won photography awards…Very cool 👏👏👏👏👏
      Accomplishments over appearance all day everyday day!

    • Sarah says:

      Congratulations on the baby AND the award. You rock 👏👏👏!!

    • doofus says:

      your body made and fed a baby for nine months! DEF be nicer to yourself!

    • minx says:

      I first gave birth 28 years ago, waiting for my body to go back to normal….

    • Sophie says:

      @Laura same girl, same. I’m 30 weeks pregnant with my 3rd and have gained 35 lbs. I am trying to be kind to myself, but it’s hard. I plan on doing my 2nd triathlon 7 months postpartum, hoping that getting strong and doing well will help me appreciate my body for what it can do instead of what it looks like. Blake’s photos reminded me that my breastfeeding boobs will be bigger than my head for a year at least!

  14. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Maybe the trench should be on its own? Just wear it like a dress and put a different belt on? But yeah, it’s too busy or tiery. LMAO, as I’m typing this, her trailer just aired. Eh.

  15. Sass says:

    Blake is trying too hard. I’ve actually always liked her. I wonder if she’s going through a fashion phase. Tbh I did that after my last child, I was tired and my body had changed and I wasn’t sure how to dress anymore. I kind of think that’s happening here.

  16. Meg says:

    She’s naturally one of the most beautiful women but you can tell her stylist etc were concerned about her post baby body and I fear she heard/felt that concern with her body language in some of the shots. She’s gorgeous but the all black dress causes you to not see her body shape which i fear was the point to instead draw the eye to her necklace. And the too dark tan on her neck in the second shot and her sticking her neck up so high looks odd.

    • Kaya says:

      Natural? She’s gotten a boob job and at least one nose job. No shade, it’s good work. She’s not natural and doesn’t have a stylist.

      • Normades says:

        Exactly. Blake is an example of good work. NO SHADE. She looks fantastic minus all the gloves.

      • minx says:

        Agree, when you see her before her “work” she was very average.

      • Anita says:

        I thought she was cute before the nose job but I think she’s stunning now. She’s not everyone’s cup of tea but I find her gorgeous. Oh and I feel like I’ve read somewhere that she was lies about not having a stylist but who knows. I dont think hollywood stylists are and doing a super job most of the time anyway…most awards show fashion is boring af.

  17. Lena says:

    I know she’s trying to make gloves happen but to me they ruin all the looks here. I don’t blame her for wanting to wear boots in the New York winter instead of stilettos though! As far as the Brit accent – she is no Gwyneth (or Renee).

  18. Spicecake38 says:

    The necklace is sublime.She should have done absolutely nothing to detract from it,and unfortunately the boots and gloves do just that.

  19. ZanB says:

    I’m a sucker for righteous vengeance movies heralding a female protagonist. I’ve watched Jennifer G in “Peppermint”, Gabrielle U in “Breaking In”, all the “Girl with the Tattoo” movies in both English and Swedish, plus the film that started it all for me “La Femme Nikita”. So, yeah. If a girl kicks ass, the flick is kick-ass!

    Although, I do wish they gave it a generic title like “Dead Ahead”, so that the film’s characters and trailer didn’t waste time explaining the meaning of “Rhythm Section”.

  20. Nan says:

    Oh, it is Reed Morano’s movie. Of course I’ll go to see it :)

  21. Leskat says:

    Blake is so beautiful but she overdoes it with every single look. She has no idea how to dress simply or in her size so that she doesn’t look like her outfit is going to burst. And that’s saying something because she is tiny!! With her it’s always giant hair, fussy frilly overdone outfits and too much makeup or jewelry. If she did just some sleek hair (with about 5 inches cut off) and a simple dress with minimal jewelry she’d go from mall rat to gorgeous.

  22. Blerg says:

    The gloves aren’t arbitrary. They cut down the chance she’ll catch a virus, and they don’t draw attention to the fact she can’t wear her rings right now. All post-partum women should be able to wear gloves if they want to. Huzzah, gloves.

  23. Case says:

    I like Blake and think she’s beautiful, but this looks like a Breakfast at Tiffany’s cosplay.

  24. A says:

    This is what I call the rich widow look.

  25. Silvie says:

    I love her. She just keeps getting more beautiful as she ages. I have high hopes for The Rhythm Section, too. Great director and the trailer is hot.
