Blake Lively Has Some Fun with Clapback at Instagram Critic of Her Fashion

Sorry, she can’t “fire” her stylist—she is her stylist.

While her husband Ryan Reynolds is more likely to issue a sassy tweet or a clapback on social media, Blake Lively just proved that she too can play the droll commenter—especially when it comes to her famously daring fashion game. Last weekend, the A Simple Favor star stepped out in a number of eye-catching outfits, including a multicolored plaid pantsuit. Apparently not everyone is as big a fan of her looks as we are, because one Instagram user commented on a picture of the ensemble, “I say this with so much love and respect for you babe, please hire a stylist or fire the one you’re currently with.” Per a screenshot on Elle, Lively responded, “”Thank you for the tips, sir. Alas, I’ve tried to fire @blakelively so many times. But that b—- just keeps coming back. She won’t leave me alone.”

Apart from the eye-roll-inducing idea of some random commenter giving Blake Lively fashion advice, said commenter was obviously not even a big fan of hers to begin with. Anyone who follows Lively’s career knows that she doesn’t have a stylist. It’s possible that she’s collaborated with some, but by and large she does her own styling. What you see on her is just her taste, for better or for worse. But honestly, for better, because her style is really fun.

It’s also worth noting that this look seems to be a favorite of Lively’s. She cross-posted the Roland Mouret suit to Twitter, writing, “Pattern porn.”

Some of us are horny for bold details, it’s fine.

And the silliest part? The comment was left on a post in which Lively is already making fun of herself. Perhaps in an attempt to pre-empt the haters, she Instagrammed pictures of the outfit with the caption, “Picnic anyone? I’ll bring the tablecloth…”

Safe to say Lively got the last sartorial laugh. Especially since the post was liked over a million times in under 24 hours.
