Blake Lively, Vision of … Elegance?

45186, NEW YORK, NEW YORK - Monday September 20, 2010. Blake Lively and Sam Page film an intimate kissing scene on the set of Gossip Girl in NYC. Page is seen wearing a tuxedo with Blake sporting an elegant silk gown and holding onto a clutch. Photograph: PacificCoastNews.com

So far into “Oh Honey, No” territory I don’t even know where to begin. Forget the Uggs (ugh); she’s filming and they’re only going to shoot from the waist up, so naturally she falls back on the comfortable footwear of choice for fashion-backward starlets who probably don’t wear pants when they’re doing closeups either. No, here I’d like to point out the dress: point at it and laugh like a murder of ravens, for it makes me think of nothing so much as this must be That Scene where she plays the Klondike Hooker with the Heart of Gold Who Time Travels to 1981 and Finally Makes Her Dreams Come True And Wins Gold in Ice Dancing With Robby Benson.

Yeah, Blake. Go win a gold medal “for Mom” and then you can properly wear Uggs.

Ugh!

Related: only people who can ride are allowed to wear cowboy hats. It’s true. It’s a Fact.

The (Un)Dress Code

Deep in the realm of comedy lies the concept of clothing for bloggers. I mean, like, if skyclad is good enough for Perez Hilton, it’s good enough for me. But that didn’t stop a company called Mod Cloth from coming out with the monstrosity they call the Blog Writer Dress:

Blog Writer Dress, otherwise known as You've Gotta Be Kidding Me, HoneyAs a full-time blog writer, you know that there’s no reason to sacrifice ease in the name of style when you’re swanning around for hours with your laptop in tow. This loose-fitting babydoll dress makes a perfect match of both with its functional button front, cuffed short sleeves, and dark grey trim. A star-like pattern adds to its charm, as do its useful pockets. Transition from typing at home to meeting up with your readers for cupcakes by adding a fitted blazer, grey tights and a high, sturdy pair of heels, and you’ll be feeling both comfortable and confident as you chat the night away.

Riiiiiiight. Look at this thing (perhaps between slightly parted fingers, while crouched in the fetal position). The only blogging this godforsaken tatersack is suitable for is nursing twins while liveblogging the Hee Haw Marathon. Thanks for alerting me to this…this THING, Gawker. I also note that they think not just that we should be wearing this (how does Nick Denton feel about that? I just don’t think these are Ryan’s colours) but that bloggers will pay $131.99 for the privilege.

Ridiculous! Everyone knows what real bloggers wear at work: Three Wolf Moon Footie PJs with Drop Seat they order off Amazon.com

What is this? I can’t even… are they Canadian or something? It’s been a long time since I’ve seen this much blah and beige at a red carpet. Martha, cropped is an either/or choice, not an “all of the above” one.
