Blake Lively Went for a Vintage Femme Fatale Vibe to Kick Off Her New Press Tour


Spotted in Manhattan: Blake Lively all dressed up and back to styling herself for a press tour. The former Gossip Girl star opted for a very vintage-inspired, femme fatale kind of look: a pink trench coat dress with black boots and leather gloves, plus a lot of jewelry. With her hair pinned to the sides and her deep crimson lips, there’s a clear 1940s vibes happening.

Why? It may be a nod to one of her character Stephanie Patrick’s looks in the film. Lively teased that look—a disguise, of course—on her Instagram. Patrick, as seen in the trailers, is hell bent on getting revenge after her family was killed. The role features Lively in a lot of different wigs to play the dark character:

The last time Lively did a press tour, she also chose outfits based off the character she was playing. Then, she was promoting A Simple Favor, where her character Emily always wore suits. So Lively wore suits to every press stop.

It’s unclear whether the femme fatale motif will stick this time around. This is Lively’s first press looks of the decade though and since welcoming her third daughter at the end of the . summer.

Lively explained to Women’s Wear Daily in March 2018, by the way, why she is her own stylist. “I have control issues and a big ego—that’s probably the honest answer [for why I won’t hire a stylist],” she deadpanned, per WWD‘s reporter, before becoming more serious. “I just like it. I love design and I love fashion and it’s a way to be creative. In my job I get to be creative, but it’s over a period of time and so many other people are involved, whereas this is a beginning, middle and end, and I get to be creative and there’s an end date in the near future. It’s the same reason why I like doing my friends’ hair and makeup or cooking—you get to be creative and finish it. Whereas with my job you do it and then two years later it’s finished. It probably goes back to the control issues; it’s like, ‘Okay, I did it, I completed it, it’s done!’”
