Blake Lively's Everlasting Obsession with Peplum
The peplum trend has been all over the red carpet for the past couple of months, with every starlet from Miranda Kerr to Anna Faris jumping on the bandwagon. And who can blame them? A peplum piece is an easy way to add structure to a silhouette and infuse a ladylike retro vibe into a cocktail dress. But one Hollywood vixen has proven to be a particularly strong advocate of the look, sporting it again and again.
Of course, it's none other than It girl Blake Lively. A Tinseltown tastemaker, Blake hopped on the trend when it was still in its nascent stage all the way back in 2010. What a style prophet right? She sported a black peplum minidress by Victoria Beckham to the Angel Ball in NYC. Pumping up her look with blue-capped Louboutins and red lips, Blake looked very polished and sophisticated.
Her love affair with peplum continued into 2011 when the gossip girl donned a feathered peplum dress by Chanel to the MoMA Film Benefit in New York. The gray tweed outfit was made even more stylish with sheer tights and Louboutin ankle boots.
Then just last week, Blake rocked the look again to the Jason Wu for Target launch party. Wearing a black and creme peplum dress by the headlining designer, the 24-year-old looked especially debonair. Lorraine Schwartz jewelry and Loubous -of course!- completed her swanky look.
