A Sit-Down is Needed

      I know, I know your in the middle of carpools, food shopping and play-dates but seriously you need to put that stuff aside because there is something major we need to discuss, and I mean MAJOR!!!  Ready!? Are you sitting down? We need to talk about how Blake Lively seriously killed it at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Her style summed up in one word: Flawless!!!

Perfection is an understatement when talking about Blake’s red carpet looks. And no, people, this wasn’t a one-time thing either (like that one time I “lost” my car in the Costco parking lot and had to have security drive me around for 30 minutes until I found it, thankfully). I apologize for the tangent but, clearly, I’m still not over it.  Anyway, so back to Blake- every time this girl stepped foot on the red carpet in one of her Louboutin’s she nailed it!!!  From hair to shoes and everything in between- every detail- gorgeous!  A true gift from the fashion g-ds! 

What I love about her style the most?… Was how it always seemed like 5 minutes before she arrived on the red carpet, in couture, she was making out with Ryan, in her bikini, on the beach!  What I’m trying to say is that the potential for these haute couture ensembles to look unnatural, stiff, and over-done is very likely but, somehow,  Blake managed to make them all look so easy and effortless- like she just threw them on.  That combined with her tousled beach waves, sun-kissed skin and some lip-gloss and you’ve got “Paris runway” on bottom and “California beach girl” on top- a tough combo to achieve, yet Blake does so beautifully.

To the Kate’s in my life (Hudson and Moss) sorry but Blake has officially become my new fashion favorite and, on a side note, Ryan Reynolds is a total hottie #justsayin !!!
