OK, Blake Lively Is Definitely Doing This Disney Princess Thing On Purpose
I have a conspiracy theory for you. It doesn't have anything to do with UFOs, mostly just celebrities — AKA the best kind of conspiracy theory.
Blake Lively, flaxen-haired goddess and erstwhile "Traveling Pants" sister, may indeed be a real life Disney princess. It's not enough to have hunky husband Ryan Reynolds, a spunky baby and Christian Louboutin on speed dial. Now, she's living out all our childhood dreams by playing dress up or, as Hollywood likes to call it, “promoting her new film 'The Shallows.'"
On Monday, Lively hit the town early for a long day of interviews, photographs and tapings in preparation for the film's release. Although I vaguely understand it to be a long story about a shark, that's not what interests me. Rather, I'm fascinated by the way each of Lively's wardrobe choices lined up perfectly with a Disney princess's costume.
There's no way she's not purposefully messing with us. After all, this is the same woman who put her tiny, baby-bearing body in a pastel blue ballgown for the Cannes Film Festival in a totally self-aware reference to Cinderella.
Follow me down the rabbit hole, ladies, as I break down Lively's princess mania.
