Blake Lively’s quick-fire fashion changes include Azzedine Alaia look

  • Blake Lively is on a whirlwind press tour to promote her new film “The Rhythm Section”

DUBAI: US actress Blake Lively is back in the spotlight. After taking an extended break from public appearances following the birth of her third child with husband Ryan Reynolds in October, the former “Gossip Girl” star is on a press tour to promote her latest film, “The Rhythm Section,” which sees the actress playing the role of a spy who takes out bad guys for revenge after discovering that the plane crash that killed her family wasn't an accident. 

On Monday, she arrived at the Brooklyn Academy of Music for the New York premiere of her new film wearing an off-the-shoulder black velvet gown by Dolce & Gabbana. Paired with leather opera gloves, an emerald Lorraine Schwartz choker and over-the-knee Christian Louboutin boots, Lively looked every bit the femme fatale, just like her onscreen personae.

The next morning, Lively stepped out wearing not one but three outfits in less than 24 hours. The mother of Inez, James and a new baby girl offered up a masterclass on almost a week’s worth of outfits in a span of a single day as she flitted from one interview to the next.

The 32-year-old kicked off her jam-packed day with an interview on “Good Morning America,” wearing mustard-yellow quilted shorts, a matching sequined jumper over a white button-up and a coat plucked from the Fendi Spring 2020 collection.

Never one to shy away from a rapid style switch-up, Lively has the ability to flip-flop from high-waisted shorts to mididresses in the span of a couple of hours with ease. Case in point: She quickly slipped into a sky blue printed Ulyana Sergeenko dress paired with a matching oversized coat from Max Mara for her second rendezvous of the morning.

For her third and final rapid-fire outfit change of the day, Lively opted for a head-to-toe ensemble from late Tunisian designer Azzedine Alaia. The star looked elegant in the label’s white button-up, which she tucked into a black velvet skirt. She completed the classic look with a pair of lace-up, suede boots and a studded wide-brimmed hat, also by Alaia.

US rapper Kanye West to pay college tuition for George Floyd’s daughter

DUBAI: US rapper Kanye West on Thursday pledged to set up a college fund for the daughter of George Floyd, the African American who died at the hands of police.

Floyd’s longtime friend and former NBA (National Basketball Association) star Stephen Jackson shared a touching video this week on Instagram of Floyd’s daughter Gianna being carried on her uncle’s shoulders, smiling, and saying, “Daddy changed the world.”

 

According to CNN, father-of-four, West, has also donated $2 million toward helping fund the families and legal teams contesting the deaths of African Americans Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor, and supporting black-owned businesses in crisis in his native Chicago and other cities.

Over recent days, the streets of New York, Los Angeles, London, Toronto, Paris, and more have witnessed celebrities and influencers standing together in solidarity with black communities.  

 

 

Meanwhile, other stars, such as 42-year-old West, have taken to their social media platforms to demand justice and draw attention to various organizations which help low-income protesters pay bail, or donation pages that directly benefit the family members of victims.

 

Earlier this week, Iraqi-American beauty entrepreneur Huda Kattan and actors Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds donated a hefty sum amid the #BlackLivesMatter protests.
