Never one to turn down a fashionable gathering, Blake Lively made an appearance at Lady Gaga's Christmas Workshop opening last night, and did so in statement style.
Instead of embracing her inner Snow Queen a la Gaga, Blake opted for the simple-but-striking approach to styling, in a blue-purple two-piece Elie Saab suit with lace shoulder pads.

And of course, Blake being Blake, she opted out of wearing any form of shirt underneath.
If you think about it, it was quite a clever choice. There was no way she'd be able to out-dress Gaga at her own grotto opening, so a headline-grabbing dress was out of the question - but the bright colour meant she still got noticed, and the choice of wearing a slick suit is a noticeable enough departure from her usual thigh-grazing mini dresses that it ensures all us fashion watchers will pick up on it...
We suspect we may be over-analysing this a tad. She probably just liked the suit.
She likes it, we like it - but do you?
