For her first appearance on the press tour of her new film All I See is You, Blake Lively was looking very old fashioned, in a good way. The blonde beauty attended a press conference for the movie Tuesday at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., in a demure look that’s character is only caught upon closer inspection.

The chirpy audience was able to bask in the best collection that the designer has put forth in some time. While we know that Africa has always been an inspiration in Theallet’s collections, this season she worked with Beyoncé’s former stylist, Jenke Ahmed Tailly, who encouraged her to really go for it. “He said, ‘Sophie, open up and do whatever you feel, because I believe in you. Cocktail dresses with tiered layers of leather and raffia, see-through waffle skirts, and lots of revealing sheer looks that somehow did not appear gaudy or ostentatious given how much skin was on display. By the time that Candice Huffine strutted onto the runway — in a corset and sheer dress no less — everyone (including Carine Roitfeld, who put Huffine on the map by styling her for the Pirelli calendar last year) was beaming. Theallet became friendly with model when she was designing a collection for Lane Bryant, and also made her the face of her first (and most recent) campaign. “She’s so beautiful and sweet,” Theallet told Yahoo Style.
