Blake Lively wore a white sundress to see Taylor Swift speak in NY

I feel like Blake Lively has been a bit more out and about than usual recently. She and Ryan Reynolds co-chaired the Met Gala this year and she was spotted at some other events in Manhattan here and there. Most recently, she and Ryan went to see Taylor Swift speak at one of the Tribeca Festival events.

It’s not officially summer yet, but it’s hot in New York and Blake went full summer with her outfit. She wore a white deep-V midi sundress with a tiered skirt and tiny buttons on the bodice and smocking on the back. There was no ID on the dress, but Glamour has some dupes at different price points. She accessorized with a pretty badass pair of spiked tan Christian Louboutin pumps, and a beige Gucci Horsebit 1955 shoulder bag. Then some chunky gold jewelry and her signature beauty waves to top it all off. Honestly, this outfit gives me nostalgic 2012 Gossip Girl vibes! It looks like something Serena would wear in the season premiere episodes when all the characters were getting back to New York after summers away. Even Ryan is giving Dan Humphrey vibes with his outfit and hipster glasses.

Blake has a few things announced or in pre-production now, so maybe she’ll be working more now that their girls are a little older. Most notably, one of the upcoming projects co-stars Lin Manual Miranda and Richard Gere and the other is the latest adaptation of a Liane Moriarty novel. Interesting! I know a lot of people think Blake and Ryan are #couplegoals, but I definitely prefer Blake to Ryan (probably my GG nostalgia even though Serena wasn’t my favorite) so I’d be happy to see her in more movies.

    I really like the dress. Zara has a few dupes I’m looking at for my upcoming holiday in Greece.

    Not a fan of the shoes and bag with this look – too formal for an otherwise casual outfit. I’d end up stabbing myself with those spikes as I like to cross my ankles too much.

      Hey, I m from Greece! So happy to welcome you to our country! Please note that these days it’s really hot but windy so bring something light but warmer to wear for the nights. Have fun!

        This comment shows so much of what I love about this community!

      • Macheath says:

        Thanks so much, Ellie! I’ll be sure to pack weather appropriate attire. Can’t wait for my trip! I’ve been before and had a wonderful time, Greek people are so welcoming. 😊

    • Ellie says:

      I’m glad you ‘ve been here before and had a good time! I hope you will enjoy your vacation this summer too! This summer there are a lot of purple/red jellyfish in the sea especially around Attica, so if you go for a swim be careful and have something with you in case they sting you. Please ask for advise at your hotel or where you will be staying!
      Btw the dress you like is lovely 🙂

    Wow, 3 names I would not have put together: Lin-Manuel Miranda, Richard Gère, and Blake Lively. Can’t see any 2 of them together in a project let alone 3! Eager to hear more about that project.

    I just don’t like her. Before she even got with Ryan for there is just shady lady vibes. It’s a bit of Gwen Paltrow vibes too. When she launched her company all I saw was pretentiousness mixes with casual racism. Them getting married on a plantation hasn’t helped either. Her dress is pretty.

  4. Pinkosaurus says:

    Stupid quibble, but such a summery dress needs open toed sandals. I’m sure she wanted to wear her adorable spikes though to give it some edge.

    I think she has made some major pr missteps in her career but she is basically harmless. She and Ryan have also supported an incredible amount of charitable giving.

    I will always like Ryan though. He has done a lot of good for Canada and he genuinely cares and is invested in good causes. During the pandemic, he took the time to personally message a friend of mine who works for public health in a Canadian city to thank him/acknowledge how good their public health messaging had been(to be fair, their messaging was amazing). I thought it was such a thoughtful gesture.

    I adore those shoes — not with this dress though. Shoes are a bit too formal for this look. I watched the Vogue / Blake Lively breakdowns x looks on YouTube and I liked that she was so grateful to all the designers. She seems to really love fashion (even if she doesn’t get it right all the time, but heck who does) I think these 2 look cute in these pics

  7. jferber says:

    Another odd pairing–she reminds me of JLo in that she has incredible hustle, always meets/hooks up with the right people (Leo, Ryan), soared into a mediocre movie career when other cast members of Gossip Girl were more talented and did not rise higher, etc. She’s not as brazen as JLo (ex. pissed at sharing the stage with Shakira), but the upward drive is sure there. Also, her Southern charm offensive rubbed me (and a lot of people the wrong way)–casual racism is right. I do like her shoes and yes, she has made a very nice life for herself.

  8. M says:

    It’s amazing how much younger she looks without a bunch of makeup on her face.

  9. C-Shell says:

    They’re such a pretty couple. Love Ryan, a sense of humor is such catnip for me. Re: her outfit and styling … the pieces are each great, but (to me) they miss coming together somehow. I’d like to know more about the Taylor Swift talk!

  10. minx says:

    Yes to the dress, no to those shoes and purse.

    • Twin Falls says:


      I thought she was good in a simple favor so I can see her in a laine moriarty adaptation.

      Richard Gere is hella sexy but I sincerely hope Blake isn’t his love interest in whatever they are in together.

    • Green Desert says:

      Agreed @minx. Blake never gets it quite right IMO. Some element of her look is always over the top/tacky.

  11. Betsy says:

    I looked it up and the Blake Lively Liane Moriarty project is The Husband’s Secret! I’m so excited for this, my first thought after I finished reading it was to hope a series was coming. I think that book has the same spark that Big Little Lies did, I can’t wait to see the show.

    The dress is giving me hardcore Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants promo tour vibes!
