Is Savages going to take the box office by storm? Only time will tell. But one of its stars, the bona fide fashionista, Blake Lively, is going to make her mark anyway, whether or not the film does well. We mean, c’mon, she has to give competition to the serious fierceness that is Salma Hayek. Salma plays the boss lady of a drug cartel who kidnaps Blake so she can control Ms. Lively’s two onscreen lovers — Taylor Kitsch and Aaron Johnson. It’s a pretty big ask, so Blake’s made sure her sartorial game is way up for the promotional rounds. It’s all about the mileage, baby!
She’s doing pretty swell, so far. Blake was on the Late Show With David Letterman yesterday and arrived looking elegant, yet young in the outfit that you see on the left. We love the girly Jenny Packham shell dress, especially when it’s been paired with tasteful Lorraine Schwartz jewelry and those awesome silver Christian Louboutin pumps. The actress made a quick change for the show, keeping the hair, makeup and shoes but slipped into a white satin Marchesa dress with jeweled auctions that you see on the right. We like it, but we’re not too sure of the fit because that sort of fabric and color adds bumps where bumps don’t even exist. But maybe it’s just the angle? In the middle, we have Blake from the Savages premiere at the Mann Village Theatre in Westwood, Californaa, the day before yesterday. This is serious, shut-the-hell-up glamour, and Ms. Lively has freakin’ nailed it. How is she pulling off this Zuhair Murad couture gown? It’s like an optical illusion, but we love it. Blake teamed the gown with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry again, and old Hollywood hair and makeup. The red lips and nails, and long, wavy, side-parted hair are spot-on. We’re looking forward to what else she pulls out of the closest for the rest of the promotions.
