Blake Lively has been doing promotional work for her new film, A Simple Favor, which opened on Friday. The project has lent itself well to Blake's personal ideas about gender equality, and Blake has made the choice to embrace that idea with her fashion choices as well by wearing menswear inspired outfits during her promotional tour for the film.


Blake has been rocking the looks with elegance...


...playful quirk...


...statement jewelry...


...and fearless color choice.

Most of her fans have been really receptive to all the looks, complimenting Blake on her ability to play with menswear in a way that's still very decidedly feminine.

People are loving the clean lines, the purposefully over-done jewelry, and the way she's been playing with plunging necklines and vests as shirts.



Not everyone is into it, though. At one point, a follower told her she needed to fire her stylist. Blake responded that it's not terribly easy to fire your stylist when your stylist is yourself, joking that she's tried but she just keeps coming back.

After her latest Instagram post, a fashion blogger re-posted the image with a snarky caption pointing out just how many suits she's been wearing lately.


Blake wasn't insulted that a random fashion blog wasn't into her look - but she was pretty quick to point out double standard on display. She commented:

Would you note a man wearing lots of suits during a promo tour? So why can't a woman? Just sayinnnn. No double standards ladies.


Once the blogger was presumably done picking themselves up off the floor from the excitement of having Blake Lively comment on one of their Instagram posts, they replied explaining that they actually like the looks, they were just joking around.

You know I love you, and I personally have really enjoyed this tour. If you look at my website, I have said that I have admired your total commitment to rocking suits during this promo tour. That number just an attempt at humor. I'm sorry it didn't translate. Looking forward to the Paris premiere.


Blake was gracious in her response and took the opportunity to remind all of Instagram that every voice counts.

I don't expect everyone to like it. Fashion that creates a difference of opinions is the fun part. I totally understand the missed humor. I do the same thing sometimes. Just looking to encourage women to do what men do without being teased for it. Yes, even in a space as material as fashion. It all starts somewhere...and everyone's voice counts.


What do you think about the message Blake has been sending with her menswear inspirations lately?

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.
