The press junket for A Simple Favor — a mystery starring Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick, directed by Paul Feig — is shaping up to be an unofficial addition to New York Fashion Week. While promoting the film, Lively has already sported a number of eye-catching looks, like double-blazers, a velour blue suit and an almost impossibly green ensemble that almost reminds of of CGI. And remember, she does all this sans stylist. Now, Lively has turned of the special effects again, wearing an optical illusion-y Roland Mouret pantsuit to meet up with Kendrick outside the Crosby Hotel in SoHo, New York City.
Unlike the monotone ensembles of earlier this weekend, Lively's latest outfit encompasses every shade and hue, using a plaid/checked pattern to go from red to yellow to blue to green in a way that's more "preppy quilt" than "big ol' rainbow." She added a menswear-inspired tie but topped the outfit off with pink earrings and a heart-shaped (like, an actual heart, not a valentine) brooch, because she's Blake Lively, not Diane Keaton.
The petite Kendrick was cute as always in a wrap dress and platform heels. She knows she can't out-fashion Lively, and she doesn't want to, and she doesn't try. She keeps it simple and it works. Perhaps this difference in their outlooks, if not their personalities, led to the casting? From the trailer, it seems like Lively's character, Emily, is much more mysterious and daring (even, let's just say it, colorful), than Anna Kendrick's everymom Stephanie.
The trailer also features a lot of fun outfits and ladies drinking wine and *Gone Girl-*esque clues so get your tickets (and your canned wine) now. In the meantime, the only mystery we have to solve is what are these two going to wear next?
