Blake Lively Responds to a Joke About the Suits She's Wearing

Blake Lively steps out in two more chic suits while doing press for movie A Simple Favor on Thursday (September 20) in Paris, France.

The 31-year-old actress has worn only pantsuits during the press tour and a fashion critic on Instagram made a joke about it the other day.

“It’s suit number 1,356 for Blake Lively‘s promotion of A Simple Favor,” the critic wrote.

Blake responded and said, “Would you note a man wearing lots of suits during a promo tour? 😱😊 So why can’t a woman? Just sayinnnn. No double standards ladies 💪💕.”

The critic said that her comment “was just an attempt at humor” and that she admires Blake‘s commitment to rocking suits.

Blake replied and said, “Nothing but love 💚. I don’t expect everyone to like it. Fashion that creates a difference of opinions is the fun part. I totally understand the missed humor. I do the same thing sometimes. 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.”

FYI: Blake is wearing a rag & bone velvet blazer and pants on the left.

    I like a good suit too Blake, but I also like variety.

    No, it’s just funny because she was always this precious girly girl in Marchesa dresses and now it just looks like she wants to be trated like a “serious actress” hence the business attire.
    To me she just doesn’t feel it and this whole outfit thing looks like a part of movie promotion

    If you think that wearing pants makes you look like a “serious actress” then the problem is you not Blake, a dress doesn’t make you the opposite of that. So “it’s just funny” because your comment confirms the bias that Blake was calling out.

    P.S. and of course all those outfits are part of a movie promotion, doh!

    Too many attempts of humour at others expense if you ask me.

    In the critics defence, I have seen several examples of men being called out for wearing the same variation of suits time and time again. What this is down to is someone who had one style for so long has suddenly done a 180 and started constantly wearing something they didn’t before and in Blake’s case there is the theory that it is actually just a publicity thing as she is now constantly wearing suits like her character does which is something she never did previous to this.

    Anytime someone wears something that isn’t considered the ‘norm’, questions are gonna be asked. You only have to see reaction to what Johnathan from Queer Eye has been wearing recently on the red carper to see that. Most people don’t care what he wears but there are those saying hmm.
