Barbiecore pink had its moment—and what a glorious moment it was!—but it’s time to move on. Leave it to IRL Barbie Blake Lively to find a new way to channel the iconic doll without going anywhere near magenta. For a night out with the Swift Squad, Lively paired a multi-colored mini-dress with a light blue tweed jacket and a toy-sized quilted blue purse. It’s very pastel and it’s very Chanel, though it might technically be from another designer…
Pretty pink kitten heels and sparkly jewels complete the look, and Lively’s husband Ryan Reynolds stayed on-theme in a pink collared shirt with a youthful design on the front, plus his ever-present beaded bracelets.
I wanna say his socks are…flamingo-patterned?
The pair were out to dinner with longtime friend Taylor Swift, plus her pals Gigi Hadid, Zoë Kravitz, Channing Tatum, and Cara Delevingne. Swift, too, wore a light blue outfit to the dinner, which, if you know Taylor Swift Color Theory, you know is a subtle nod to her upcoming re-recorded album, 1989 (Taylor’s Version). The red lip, the New York location? Yeah, she’s in promo-mode, and maybe Lively wanted to match the musician.
