We Try To Explain Blake Lively's "You Had To Be There" Outfit

Celebrities often say and do the darnedest things. And, sometimes, they wear them, too. Last night, Blake Lively showed up to her The Age of Adaline film premiere in a Monique Lhuillier ensemble that made our heads go all pug-litter tilt (in a good way).

But, here's the thing — while this outfit is stunning and glorious to see, it's nearly impossible to describe without making it sound insane. The outermost layer of this look is a modern tuxedo jacket-cum-dress that's slightly off-center and shows off a flash of thigh. Underneath is a totally sheer jumpsuit covered in stars, with a cowl-neck top. Tuxedo dress. Off-center. Sheer jumpsuit. Stars and a cowl neck? Yes, we know it sounds batty, but try describing the Mona Lisa without sounding like you're reading way too much into a pair of lips.

No matter which description you decide to go with, Blake killed it, and anytime we see someone dress outside his or her usual sartorial repertoire, we like to document the moment. Especially a moment that leaves us as bewildered — and starry-eyed — as this one.
