Blake Lively might be the best stylist in Hollywood. Her main client—herself—has a strong sense of how to put together a cohesive look to make a point. The current one: embodying her latest character from A Simple Favor. In the film, Lively plays a devious, well-dressed woman with some kind of unknown, questionable past. She notably wears suits and ties in nearly every scene—a power move we can get behind. While doing press for the movie, Lively has kept up the same bold style. Here are some of her best 'fits yet.

Blazer dress? Yep. Fun bow tie? Also, yep.


If tucking your tie into your suit becomes a thing, you know who to thank.

Thank you, Blake, for redefining what people think when they hear "pinstripes" and "wide-leg trousers."

This is an actual men's Versace suit. Joke's on us; it looks like it was made for Lively.

A velvet two-piece suit is everything good about office-wear.

There's a lot happening here—a regular collar, a pussybow neckline, a vest, and a Bottega Veneta suede jacket. It's all very, very good.


Orange Bottega Veneta suits! Louboutin Penny loafers! A POCKET WATCH! There is nothing this woman can't do.
