Gossip Girl Blake Lively at End-of-Summer Bash in the Hamptons

How Would YOU Wear It? Blake Lively

Every fashion follower is bound to have a momentary lapse of judgment, and that moment has come for Gossip Girl Blake Lively. The actress had us scratching our heads when she showed up to a party in the Hamptons in this monochrome outfit. All-white can be crisp and refreshing, but here it's tacky.

If I were Blake's stylist, I would have ridded her of those unflattering white pants and thrown on a slimming black pair. I would have cut off the side tie that accompanies the blouse as it's too much with the ruffles. On her feet, I would have recommended fun metallic sandals so as to let the blouse do the dazzling. How would YOU wear it?

Black jeans/pants and black stilettos.

Too many ruffles is right, I would wrap the side tie around to lose the sheer look of the blouse and tuck it under, or do a simple "rob drape" which is just making sure its flat, elegent(no bows!!) and comple..but still visible as a tie. Very chic, also...maybe a black denim..? for a dramatic yet recently popular colour blocking effect.

It's as simple as giving her a new top. I think that one is hideous.

Sorry dears, I only do sheer when it's stockings. And I'm not much on the lobster-bib style top, either. I'm messy, and I just know that SOMETHING would get dropped on it, or worse, it'd get dipped in something. Pass!

at first glance I didn't recognize her. The outfit makes her look old.

I love the top. Anybody know who makes it?

I actually really like the outfit on her and the "slimming" comment leaves me a bit boggled. The only thing I would have done differently is worn black or nude closed toe shoes. White shoes rarely look good and especially so when worn with white.

its not SUPER UGLY... But I would pair that blouse with some brown pants and a strappy silver sandal... Brown is so refreshing to me...

I'd go with either a sleek black pencil skirt or a cute little gold mini skirt. and i agree cut off the side tie.

I would have worn it with a high waisted black pencil skirt and black sky high YSL pumps

The top is cute and would look good with the pencil skirt EU suggested or black pants a la Fab. I don't like the side tie of the shirt either (it looks rather extraneous) and the sheer top with those tight white pants isn't flattering. With a different outfit, the pants would look good. The shoes are ugly.

I love the all white...crisp, summer, Hamptons-y. I do agree that metallic sandals would have been a nice touch, but I think she looks great.

Keep the shirt, add denim mini skirt and python pumps. Wear hair up in a loose ponytail and add stud earrings with just a hint of sparkle. Add a bracelet with a little punch of color. Go. Check out my look at:

Synergistic tackiness.

I would bring some sort of colour into it at least, like her shoes, a colourful heel and matching accessory would make the outfit less tacky & i do not know what that white fabric on the belly is but it looks awful! she should get rid of that! and the trousers have to go, a skirt would look much better. but im not sure what skirt! :)

I am sorry but those shoes are most offensive.

Either a black pencil skirt very sleek with a great pair of grey suede high heeled loafers or a fun metallic mini....... I think the all white thing was just bad judgement but everybody has off days

I can't decide which I hate more--those horrible pants or the top. I like ruffles, but this a little over-the-top for me.

the bottom sash i'd X out and maybe even try it with a hot pair of dark skinny jeans and some snake skinned louboutins (although i personally don't wear animals).

she looks great, I like the outfit too!

I like her outfit as it is too! Sure, maybe it's not her best outfit to date, but it still makes her look great. She has such a nice body that she can pull off the "unflattering" white pants.
