Alexis Bledel Plays Dress-Up

It's hard to break out of the cutesy child actor box once you've wedged yourself into it but Post Grad star, Alexis Bledel, is up for the challenge. The 27-year-old actress and former Gillmore Girl has since moved on to embrace a more stylish and sophisticated demeanor as proven in this fun '80s-inspired photo shoot.

“I try to get away from the way people see me on the show in little ways, try to dress older or just differently,” says Bledel. “I try not to wear anything that makes me look too young because that only aggravates the idea that I’m young and sweet like my character on [Gilmore Girls].” Alexis's recent red-carpet looks had me awed but seeing her in a leather YSL unitard is an entirely different story . . .

To see more '80s-esque Alexis,

I agree with Syako - it's not like she doesn't look great, but it seems a little forced. I totally get that she's trying to look sexier and more mature, but there's a more balanced way to do it. For instance, I recall recently seeing a photo of her in a Herve Leger dress at some red-carpet function (possibly on FabSugar) and it was HAWT, yet simpler and more tasteful. Maybe I'm just having trouble with this since I'm not a big fan of the full-on 1980s redux generally.

She does look great here. I just think maybe she's trying too hard... I see her and of course we think of Rory, just like you think of Rachel when you see Jen Aniston, but it's just part of who she will always be. I think she should just be herself and not worry about looking grown up or shedding that part of her career.
