Get Blake Lively’s Amazing CFDA Look For Less Than $150

While the entire Internet was busy buzzing over Rihanna’s tasteless (yeah, I went there) see-through CFDA look, I was more concerned with a girl who walked the red carpet with style, class, perfect styling and gorgeous hair. I’m talking about Blake Lively, of course. In my humble opinion, she was the real style star of the night.

Blake famously went on record telling the world she doesn’t employ a stylist and, while some people don’t quite believe it, I sort of do. I mean, yeah. Pretty much every celebrity is going to have a lot of help, especially before hitting a red carpet event. She definitely has an expert tailor on hand (that dress fit her perfectly) and designers wooing her to wear specific pieces. But when it comes right down to the nitty gritty styling, Blake is never so out there or unusual that it looks like the work of a professional. Her outfits areĀ far more classic. It’s sort of the way an ordinary girl would. Which is why I’m about to show you how you can get a similar look for less.

Rock this look out for a wedding this summer because why not? It’s fairly basic so no one will know you’re just using Blake for inspiration and its both formal and simple enough for anyone to pull off.

First up, the dress. This Adrianna Papell sheath is a similar fit and, though it’s a bit more sparkly than Blake’s dress, at $99, the price is pretty great.

Step 2: Your shoes. I love the subtle pink tone of Blake’s shoes. It is so feminine and it’s a fun twist on the typical nude shoe. This pair is super affordable at $24.

Don’t forget to accessorize. Blake adds some hoop earrings (you probably have some of these lying around) and a stack of bangles. These are only $6.80!


Finish off with neutral makeup, teased hair and a nude headband and there you have it – Blake’s look for well under $200 – I’m willing to bet this is, like, one tenth of what her outfit cost.
