Everything that touches, wears or adopts Blake Lively turns into a trend. Who never wanted to reproduce her signature wave, her Californian blond or her porcelain complexion? From “Gossip Girl” to her appearances on the red carpet, the young woman is always unanimous. At least, so far. Invited to the American Cinematheque Awards ceremony, the actress stood out thanks to her new manicure. If it has always oscillated between rather neutral colors, sometimes opting for pearly varnishes, sometimes for classic red, this time Blake Lively has stepped out of her comfort zone. On her oval nails, we could see a yellow varnish upgraded with brown and green flower patterns. And on closer inspection, this nail art looks just like an ultra vintage tapestry. An inspiration confirmed by the main interested party. “Thank you for giving me these grandma’s antique tapestry nails that I’ve wanted for a long time,” she wrote on her Instagram Story.
What do we think?
On paper, let’s be honest, we’re not thrilled. In writing, opinions differ. If some speak of audacity, others think that too much is not needed. Have the limits of vintage been reached? Surely not. With this new manicure – which has a good chance of becoming a solid trend for 2023 -, Blake Lively confirms her pioneering status. Besides, this isn’t the first time that grandma’s trends have tickled us.
