Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively star in a mystery thriller, “A Simple Favor.”
Consider Blake Lively’s life made.
The “Simple Favor” star shared a who-wore-it-best-style image of herself next to legendary actor Robert Redford on Twitter Tuesday.
Lively, 31, channeled “The Sting” actor in a custom pink Ralph Lauren collection suit with a gray tie that she wore to her film’s UK premiere in London Monday.
“Life Goal: To be in a Who Wore It Better with Robert Redford,” she tweeted.
But, it appears the busy actress may be able to check this monumental goal off her bucket list: “Other Life Goal: to have less free time spent making photo collages of myself and Robert Redford.”
Lively has lived in a suit while promoting “A Simple Favor,” where she plays Emily Nelson, a wealthy fashion design executive who (you guessed it) wears a parade of stylish suits.
The mother of two’s latest fashion choices have occasionally come under fire, including the light pink menswear that helped complete her “life goal.”
Red Carpet Fashion Awards founder Catherine Kallon joked that Lively wore “suit number 1,356” at the film’s UK premiere. The “Gossip Girl” alum called out the critic for promoting a “double standard.”
“Would you note a man wearing lots of suits during a promo tour?” Lively questioned in the comment section. “So why can’t a woman? Just sayinnnn.”
She continued: “Just lookin’ to encourage women to do what men do without being teased for it. Yes, even in a space as material as fashion. It all starts somewhere… and everyone’s voice counts.”
This is not the first time Lively has fired back at fashion critics.
After posting a picture of herself wearing a boisterous, plaid Roland Mouret suit, the @commentsbycelebs Instagram account showed Lively clap back at a user who told her to “please hire a stylist or fire the one you’re currently with.”
Lively replied: “Thank you for the tips, sir. Alas, I’ve tried to fire @blakelively so many times. But that (expletive) just keeps coming back. She won’t leave me alone.”
