It’s been over a year since Blake Lively’s last major press tour. (She kept an understandably low-profile throughout her third pregnancy and in the months following her daughter’s birth). This week, however, we’re pleased to report that the actress has made her triumphant return to the spotlight to promote her new drama, The Rhythm Section. In the past day, she’s stepped out in not one look, but five. FIVE — as in the number of outfits most people wear through an entire work week.
Lively kicked off the sartorial parade in N.Y.C. in a retro-looking belted trench coat, leather gloves, and lace-up boots, her blonde locks pinned back in a ‘40s-esque style.
Next up, Lively arrived at a screening for the film in another retro-inspired look: a black velvet off-the-shoulder Dolce & Gabbana gown with black leather opera gloves and matching over-the-knee Christian Louboutin boots. She accessorized with a four-tier pearl and chain-link Lorraine Schwartz choker with a 50-carat emerald accent.
Following the screening, Lively swapped her gown and updo for a floral shirtdress and loose waves.
And while the sheer number of outfit changes (not to mention the high-energy of a press day) would have me on the couch in the fetal position for the next 24-72 hours, Lively does not share such limitations. The next morning she was back on the press circuit, first in a muted mustard Fendi ensemble which included quilted high-waist shorts (in January!), a glittering patterned V-neck sweater, a white dress shirt, lace-up combat boots, and a trench coat.
Lively then turned to the opposite end of the color spectrum, exiting the Good Morning America studio in a sky blue button-front floral mididress and a cozy cobalt blue Max Mara coat. The mother of three offset cool tone of the outfit with a pair of red and black platform pumps with a glittering silver toe.
Keep the looks comin,' Blake!
