Blake Lively is the extraordinarily beautiful actress married to Deadpool himself, Ryan Reynolds. Of course Blake’s rise to fame started long before her marriage to the 2010 sexiest man alive, when she earned the recurring role as Bridget in the Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants series. Thereafter, Blake skyrocketed to fame in the CW series Gossip Girl. Playing the elite New York socialite, Serena Van Der Woodsen, made Blake a household name for tweens and young girls. Seeking another chapter in her career Blake started appearing on the big screen in movies such as The Town, Savages, and Green Lantern. It was when she was playing Carol Ferris in the superhero flick Green Lantern that she met her sexy now-hubby, Ryan Reynolds.
Now flash forward five years and the power couple are expecting their second child. With Blake as elegant, sexy, and powerful a fashion icon she is, there’s no doubt she’s been killing the maternity game. Reynolds and Lively are close to their due date with their second child and Blake has been making the media rounds promoting her movies The Shallows and Cafe Society at Cannes Film Festival and other media junkets. And it’s no question in the mind that Blake has been looking amazing! They say pregnancy gives you a glow and if that’s true Blake is shining brighter than the sun. Here’s our top 15 pregnant Blake Lively fashion moments to show you what we mean!
15. Looking Like Elsa
Many affiliated this look with the now famous Disney princess, Elsa, from Frozen. As Blake was attending the 2016 Cannes Film Festival promoting her film, The Shallows, she wore this slick, blue gown that could only make us think of a princess. Even the scarlet herself must have been feeling the Frozen vibe as she posted an Instagram photo of the dress with the caption “Let it Glo.” The dazzling ocean blue dress, accompanied with Lorraine Schwartz jewellery worn by Lively, was the perfect mixture of elegant and fun. The dress was worn to the Cannes primer of BFG so the Disney reference is spot on! Oh, and did we mention she’s 9-12 weeks pregnant?
14. Monse Mini For Moi
Remember when mothers were urged to cover up back in the 80s with long sun dresses, over sized sweaters, and pretty much anything that would make you look four times bigger than your actual size? Well those days are no more. And I think we’re happy about that! Maternity style has slowly evolved but, as we jet into the millennial age, pregnant mothers have more options than ever! Not to mention the different designer brands producing styles to fit a range of body types rather just one. Blake has used this to her advantage by outwearing any model adorning it on the runway. Blake was out and about in NYC when photographers captured her in the stylish ensemble as she promoted her film The Shallows. To spice up the look and help stray from her trademark ponytail, Blake wore over-the-top curls and Versace heels.
13. Fab In Feathers
This look came from the Michael Kors 2016 Fall Collection which Blake completely rocked! Again, Blake is months pregnant… not that you could tell with the white feathery skirt that flows gently over her baby bump! Blake took a stroll in her current home city of New York in the cute outfit as she went off to do interviews for her two movies Cafe Society and The Shallows. The dress comes from a designer line, but Lively still managed to pull off a grey hoodie over top and still have her style on fleck. Of course, how could Blake run a media junket tour without featuring her trademark ponytail at least once or twice? Blake made this look so effortless and cute!
12. Scarlett Red For A Scarlett!
Who said you can’t show off your curves while pregnant? Blake rocks this sexy, tight Oscar de la Renta dress she wore while promoting. Blake included this in her Instagram mini series she called “#TheShallows fashion recap.” The scarlet paired the look with some killer four inch heels by Louboutin, shimmery Lorraine Schwartz earrings, and a Van Cleef & Arpels braclet. Blake pulled off another ponytail and totally killed the dress with her new mom curves. Blake has definitely proved to us that she’s the one to beat!
11. Today Show Stopper
Yet another mini dress from The Shallows (which did great in the box office by the way!) star. Some hit Blake with criticism over her Today Show look she wore in June. However, we think Blake looked the perfect amount of classy and cute as she promoted her film on the famous talk show. The show stars it’s filming early in the morning which the beauty joked about on her Instagram joking a women captured standing behind Blake in a street photo thought Blake was “way overdressed for 7am.” The dress came from the Elie Saab 2016 Spring Couture line in the colour peach. Blake also took to point out she was wearing Stuart Weitzman sandals and carrying a Louboutin bag.
10. Lady in Red
Four months pregnant but you probably can’t tell! Straying from her trend with dresses, Blake chose to wear a red jumpsuit to a photo call for the Cafe Society during the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. The jumpsuit red was provided by Juan Carlos Orlando – yet another designer name to add to the list. Blake looked nothing short of sophisticated and strong in the red ensemble and it really shows how versatile Lively’s style can be. The jumpsuit was also a great way to comfortably hide her baby bump, although we all know Blake isn’t the type to shy away from showing it! Good for you, Blake!
9. Upper East Side Class
Pearls on a dress? Don’t mind if we do! This is probably Blake’s most expensive look while promoting films during the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. While standing on a fake rock Blake gave us some serious nostalgia looking like her former upper east side character, Serena Van Der Woodsen. The dress was from the Giambattista Valli Spring 2016 Haute Couture line. The skirt covered her baby bump effortlessly and a small purple shawl gave the look the step up towards class. Of course, Blake’s styling team couldn’t keep the look simple and plain as that wouldn’t fit the zesty actress’ taste. Instead, Blake’s heels took a more animalistic twist with a zebra pattern by Christian Louboutin.
8. Met Gala 2016
The theme for the Met Gala 2016 was fashion of the future and it would appear Blake just didn’t get the memo. However, did that stop Ms. Reynolds from looking bomb? Not a chance. Blake wore a custom-designed Pink Burberry dress as she attended the Gala alongside Burberry CEO, Christopher Bailey. The dress looked as if it were inspired by a cherry blossom tree but according to the brand it was a “blush pink silk organza, accented with hand-dyed and sewn perspex petals.” The dress looked spectacular on Blake, whom has had some involvement in the design, according to Bailey who told Vogue magazine.
7. Sunny And Yellow
Blake Lively brings all types of energy to those she meets, so it’s not like she needs the assistance of a bright coloured dress to capture herself some attention. But whether or not Blake needs help isn’t debatable as she rocks this Jenny Packham gown with a denim jacket – giving her a rather country feel. Blake was off promoting Cafe Society at The Today Show again when she was captured by paparazzi whilst strutting down the streets of New York. Blake’s look was paired with a nude sandal by (you guessed it!) Louboutin, and turquoise earrings courtesy of Jennifer Meyer jewellery.
6. Cinderella, Cinderella!
We told you Blake had a knack for impersonating princesses didn’t we? After showing off a sexy Elsa look, Blake debuted a Vivienne Westwood dress that had everyone comparing it to Cinderella’s ball gown. Of course, it helps Blake was wearing a diamond headband much like the animated version of the princess! Blake wore her princess get up to a showing of Slack Bay (Ma Loute) during the 2016 Cannes Film Festival – at which Blake clearly won the fashion game for that year. All that was missing to Blake’s Cinderella rendition was the infamous glass slippers (ouch!) and black choker. Wouldn’t Blake make the perfect Cinderella or princess in general?
5. Cut Outs In Sexy Dress
Yet again Blake is here to give pregnant moms the boost of confidence required to go ahead and wear a tighter more form fitting garment while repping her baby bump. The 29-year-old actress wore this green and blue body con dress while attending an event at Hotel Martinez in May while on her Cannes Festival tour for The Shallows and Cafe Society. The clinging dress hugged perfect to Blake’s curves and new baby bump! The look was rather daring as it has many slits or “cut outs” baring some skin… not that showing skin is a problem for Blake! The star paired the look with emerald earrings and Louboutin heels.
4. Bringing High Fashion To Jimmy Fallon!
Blake visited the set of Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show in July and had a blast! Blake has a knack for storytelling, especially about her family, and this episode of Jimmy Fallon was no exception! Not only did the star share some personal stories about her and Ryan Reynolds’ daughter, but she also dazzled us in an Emanuel Ungaro halter and skirt duo. The dress was connected by black strappings, which gave Blake a sexier feel. Paired with Blake’s favourite shoe artist, Louboutin, Ofira Jewels bracelets, and a Judith Leiber clutch. Blake also blessed us by adorning her classic Hollywood curls that she infamously debuted back in 2013.
3. Who Can Rock Leather Flowers? Blake Can!
Blake Lively isn’t one to shy away from a fashion statement and it’s said the star doesn’t have an official stylist. I guess it would appear Blake has a talent for fashion just as she does for acting! The star wore this black and white dress by designer Carolina Herrera for her premier for The Shallows, leaving Lively looking perfectly svelte. The actress wore the dress on the red carpet, while also wearing accenting Lorraine Schwartz earrings and Louboutin pumps. The skirt of the dress was embellished in leather flowers, which was a very unique twist on a bella skirt. Who thought leather could look classy on the red (or blue) carpet?
2. “L.A. Face With An Oakland Booty”
Blake got quite the backlash for posting this photo on Instagram with the Sir-Mix-Alot lyrics, “L.A. face with an Oakland booty” as the caption. Apparently, some people took the reference to be racist rather than comical as it was perceived by Lively. Of course, that didn’t stop fans from going hysterical over Blake’s body though. The actress, who recently put on her baby weight, was loving her new curves and posted the photo not thinking any backlash would occur. Nonetheless, Lively shone in the Versace golden gown that she wore at the 2016 Cannes Festival. Blake also made mention to one of her favourite jewellery designers, Lorraine Schwartz, for pimping her hand with some nice rocks!
1. Sizzling While Repping The Bump!
Last but not least, we present you with this sexy David Koma dress worn by Lively during the after party of the premiere for The Shallows. Blake’s baby bump was on full display as she partied with co-stars and cast members – without the bubbly, of course! Blake was also representing her trademark high ponytail and some killer Ofira jewellery hoops. Lively must be getting a discount at Louboutin for the amount she represents them because, yet again, Blake chose to wear some Lou pumps. Not that we’re blaming her, Blake looks awesome in everything!
