The ’90s pantsuit has wormed its way back to our wardrobes with a bang! Gone are the baggy jackets and heavy shoulder pads *shudder* the pantsuit is now making a statement on the red carpet. I knew we had a trend here on our hands when Blake Lively wore a red Micheal Kors pantsuit very similar to Freida Pinto’s Gucci look at the Trishna premiere. While Pinto’s suit was more burnt red, Lively’s was the right shade of fire-engine red.
I’m really torn on who wore it better. On one hand Blake’s look is a departure from her usual formula of either cleavage or legs on display on the red carpet. I love the strappy design of her Christian Louboutin shoes. However, I love how Freida accessorized her suit with that beautiful butterfly brooch. The striped Fendi baguette also adds a nice touch to the ensemble. Ack! I can’t decide. What do you think?
Psst! Catch the trailer of Blake’s new movie here:
