Sink Or Swim: Blake Lively In Spring 2012 Elie Saab

Blake Lively attended last night’s party for Lady Gaga at Barneys (where Gaga wore a crazy dress custom designed by Chanel) and showed up in an Yves Klein blue pantsuit by Elie Saab with lace detailing on the shoulders. We wouldn’t call this a full-blown disaster but…

1) We think the blazer/no shirt combination always looks pretty trashy (remember when Rosie Huntington-Whiteley tried it?)

2) We think that lace detailing is distracting/pointless:

3) We can’t stand her fistfuls of costume jewelry:

4) The fact that Lively is convinced all shoes must come with a red heel really bit her in the ass on this one because (although you can’t quite see it in the photo below) her choice of bulky Christian Louboutin Metallips really weighed the look down:

…Now that we’ve parsed it out, we actually really dislike this look, though it’s more the styling decisions that drag it into Fashion Disaster territory than simply the suit itself. What do you say?

Sorry! This poll is now closed.

      She also looks like she’s wearing and enormous teal cowboy hat the way that picture is taken. It’s like Annie-Get-Your-Shirt-On.

        Haha I thought the same. The whole outfit looked much better when I realized she wasn’t wearing a giant blue hat.

        I actually have a picture of me wearing a giant teal foam cowboy hat…rough times.

        Hahaha I only realized it wasn’t a cowboy hat thanks to your guys’ comments. I looked back and it suddenly looked a lot better.

      It is very ill fitting. I am a fan of a no-shirt suit, but this is too small on her and the shoes are too heavy.
