Neon green Versace or all white to the VMAs — Blake Lively‘s pantsuit style knows no boundaries. The A Simple Favor actress has been rocking fabulous pantsuits for almost every single appearance she’s made this month, and we are so here for it. Blake’s fully committed to her sophisticated look, but it’s not just about the stylish ensembles — she’s “just lookin’ to encourage women to do what men do without being teased for it.”
Earlier this week, a blogger posted photos of Blake at the UK premiere of her new movie, writing, “It’s suit number 1,356 for Blake Lively’s promotion of A Simple Favor. This time custom pink Ralph Lauren Collection.” While the initial thought behind the caption was “an attempt at humor,” it did not sit well with with Blake.
“Would you note a man wearing lots of suits during a promo tour? 😱😊 So why can’t a woman? Just sayinnnn. No double standards ladies 💪💕,” she replied to the blogger.
“You know I love you, and I personally have really enjoyed this tour. If you look at my website, I have said that I have admired your total commitment to rocking suits during this promo tour. That number was just an attempt at humor. I’m sorry it didn’t translate. Looking forward to the Paris premiere. 😘,” the blogger wrote in response.
It was all love from Blake after that, but she brings up a valid point: why is there a need to calculate her fashion choices when some men wear suits every single day? Blake’s recent style choices are a nod to her character in A Simple Favor, who wore similar suits. Read on to see the Blake’s full comments and more gorgeous photos of her rocking the heck out of pantsuits.
