What Do We Think Of Blake Lively’s Very First Dress Design?

Actress, mother, style icon and founder of Preserve, Blake Lively has yet another profession to add to her very impressive CV. The actress took to Instagram last night to show off the dress she co-designed with Amour Vert which is being sold on her lifestyle website.

The amazing dress is wedding guest-ensemble perfection and Blake is the perfect model for the frock. She captioned the image:

“I may not be able to draw worth a lick, but I am proud of this dress I co-designed with Amour Vert for @preserve_us You better send me pics if you buy it! I want to share your photos!! #PRSRV so I see it!”

The lovely star seems super excited to be adding fashion designer to her list of achievements and this may be just the start of much bigger things to come. Speaking to German mag, Jolie, Blake explained:

“To be honest, I could really see myself opening a clothing label and might even do it one day. But right now there is just no time for it. I really couldn’t take any more sleep deprivation!” 

Juggling being mum to a newborn, wife to a Hollywood heartthrob, doing worldwide film tours and working as the founder of her own website, we’re not surprised Blake doesn’t have any time in her schedule to add yet another role, but we really hope she might do one day.

With her incredible style and huge influence – remember that time Blake wore 10 amazing outfits in just one day? – and judging by her first attempt, we’re pretty sure a fashion line by Ms Lively will be a massive success.

If you want to get your hands on Blake’s very first frock, then you can buy it on Preserve for $230. But if you can’t quite manage the splurge, then check out these high street alternatives.

We love this maxi number from Zara which has the same tie detail as Blake’s lovely dress and this polka-dot Topshop number taps into the same print and cut-out detail.


Zara Pink Floral Maxi Dress, £59.99

Topshop Polka Dot Dress, £38
