“Would you note a man wearing lots of suits during a promo tour?” Lively said. “So why can’t a woman? Just sayinnnn. No double standard ladies.”
Blake Lively is sick and tired of double standards, especially when it comes to her wardrobe.
After Lively wore a pink Ralph Lauren suit — inspired by Robert Redford in "The Sting" — to the U.K. premiere of "A Simple Favor," one critic decided she had seen enough. Red Carpet Fashion Awards founder Catherine Kallon cracked a joke on Instagram, saying it was "suit number 1,356." The actress quickly responded, shutting down the suit shamer.
"Would you note a man wearing lots of suits during a promo tour?" Lively said. "So why can’t a woman? Just sayinnnn. No double standard ladies."
Kallon was excited to get the attention of the actress, posting a screenshot of the response on Instagram, saying, "The queen has spoken. #NoDoubleStandards #WomenInSuits #WhenYourJokeDoesntBang."
While on the press tour of her new movie, Lively has been seen sporting a wide range of suits, as a nod to her character Emily in the film who is a fashion designer that favors powersuits, and fans can’t seem to get enough.

"Not to be dramatic or anything but blake lively in a suit is the best thing to ever happen to me," wrote one fan, and another wrote, "Just watched ‘A Simple Favor’ and tbh I could watch Blake Lively slay in suits and a pimp cane all day."
Fans continued to post pictures of their favorite suits, showing that one critic doesn’t speak for everyone.
"blake lively really does make the world livelier when she comes out wearing suits. The world is TOO WEAK for her, I MEAN LOOK AT ALL THAT POWER AND ENERGY SHE RADIATES PHEW I CAN’T BREATHE," wrote a fan.
