Blake Nails The Perfect White House Look
Imagine you were invited to the White House to attend a State Dinner in honor of Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau. What would you choose to wear ? Something demure but not boring, chic but not too classic. Now imagine yourself as a hot celebrity also, your questions immediately get compounded. The style stakes are high. Do you remember Angeline Jolie in her Ralph & Russo ensemble to meet the Queen ? Not great, she didn’t look like her at all, and so boring!
Well, Blake Lively AKA Mrs. Ryan Reynolds, had a mighty attractive accessory on her arm, her husband looked as dapper as can be.
Her Ralph & Russo silver silk wrap dress was a fine balance of chic, glamorous sex appeal. The choice of satin could have gone terribly wrong, imagine it creasing… The brilliant duo behind the label ensured that there wasn’t a crease in sight.
The daring front slit of the dress added some serious sex appeal without appearing too brash, thanks too the peekaboo effect created by the wrap dress.
The demure long sleeves of the dress, again without a crease in sight, balanced out the deep V. The dramatic lilac earrings and glamorous hairstyle added her traditional pizzaz to an otherwise unaccessorized look. A large part of the success of the look is that she still looked pretty much the same.
Her delicate makeup and nude manicure and pedicure, ensured that she looked as regal as the best of them.
The piece de resistance however were the shoulder cut-outs, a playful twist on a White House appropriate formal dress, just to lighten things up a bit !
