Here’s Blake Lively at last night’s New York premiere of Sherlock Holmes. I can’t even imagine how cold she was - the whole Eastern corridor is in the midst of a huge cold front, and we’re getting lots of snow today and this weekend. I just checked - it’s hovering around 20 degrees Fahrenheit this morning in New York, so I can only imagine it was in the teens last night for the premiere. The men at the premiere were bundled up in scarves - meanwhile, Blake is prancing around in what basically amounts to a pair of panties and a lace chemise. She looks flawless, though. Great hair and makeup. Perhaps this look would have been better during a warmer season, though.
As many know, I’m a big fan of Blake Lively. I don’t watch Gossip Girl or anything, so I can’t really say I like her for whatever acting chops she has. I think my affection for her is that she’s one of the most interesting girls on the red carpet these days, and because I think she’s very, very pretty, albeit in a surgically altered way. Every day that I see Blake on a new red carpet, I’m happy. She’s likes to show off her T&A, as well as her legs - but rarely in a “look at me, I’m so sexy” Pamela Anderson way. Blake tries to be high fashion while she’s showing off her asset. I appreciate that. That being said, I think she should cover the hell up! I feel like her mom - but she’s seriously going to catch something if she doesn’t start wearing more clothes.
As far as the rest of the red carpet, everybody else at least made some concessions to the cold weather. Robert Downey Jr. wore a fabulous brown suit which looked great on him. Rachel McAdams opted for a strapless jumpsuit that was kind of blah. Jonny Lee Miller was there too! He looks amazing, and he was probably there to support his bestie Jude. Mark Strong is a total cueball now, but I still find him sexy. And Guy Ritchie’s date was his son with Madonna, Rocco. Rocco looked uncomfortable, which makes me feel for the poor kid.
