Kendall Jenner and Blake Lively demonstrated just how chic trousers can be, Caitriona Balfe flaunted her mile-long stems in a pre-wedding party look, and Amal Clooney, Eva Longoria, and Rochelle Humes gave us wedding gown options in a chic trio of styles. Here, the red carpet looks we couldn't get enough of this week.

Amal Clooney at the Money Monster 69th Annual Cannes Film Festival Premiere: We always await with bated breath for each of Amal Clooney's looks: the woman makes elegance look as easy as jeans and a white t-shirt. She was by her husband's side at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of his latest film, draped in a custom Atelier Versace one-shoulder gown. With her sideswept curls and va-va-voom red lips, this look was wedding gown perfection at its finest.

Kendall Jenner at the Magnum Global Ambassador Photocall during the 69th Annual Cannes Film Festival: Jumpsuits are one of our favorite silhouettes. And for good reason: they're all you need in just one-piece, and leave you looking effortlessly chic. Kendall Jenner wore one this week from one of our favorite bridal-perfect designers—Emilia Wickstead. Her cream number boasts flattering seam detailing and a feminine bow at the shoulder: the perfect ensemble for your engagement party. If you're having the celebration outdoors, slip on cat-eye shades like Kendall's to keep the sun at bay. Add bold lip to this pared-down look if your style proclivities are more on the bold side.

Blake Lively at the Café Society 69th Annual Cannes Film Festival Photocall: We love a pop of color for your rehearsal dinner: no need to conform to a traditional all-white ensemble if you're a fashion daredevil. Blake Lively was the lady in red this week at the Cannes Film Festival, in a gorgeous Juan Carlos Obando jumpsuit—his designs make their wearers look incredibly beautiful with little to no effort. You won't need much besides a great updo and your radiance with a look like this one.

Eva Longoria at the 69th Annual Cannes Film Festival Opening Night Gala: Two-tone gowns are so much fun: you can keep the skirt of your dress traditional, while adding some shimmer and sparkle to the top half. Eva Longoria is our inspiration for the choice this week—clad in a long-sleeve Pamella Roland gown at the Cannes Film Festival. She's always in her element during this time of year and we loved her modern middle-part and ear cuff: fun ways to be on-trend without completely being of the moment. Perhaps this is a sign of things to come for her big day!

Caitriona Balfe at the Money Monster 69th Annual Cannes Film Festival Photocall: We're accustomed to seeing Caitriona Balfe in larger-than-life costumes on Outlander, but she flaunted her mile-long stems this week at the Cannes Film Festival. A woman can never go wrong in Louis Vuitton, and her rosette-detailed blouse and mini skirt showed us all why. You'll certainly turn a few heads in something similar at your bachelorette party or post-ceremony brunch. Caitriona's refined updo, rosy pink lips, and gold ankle-strap sandals were the perfect touches for the flirty ensemble.

Rochelle Humes at the BAFTA Television Awards 2016: A thigh-high slit is a surefire way to add some sexiness to your bridal look. You can opt for the sultry detail for your entire bridal moment day to night, or you can change into a dress boasting the leg-baring accent for a full evening of partying. Rochelle Humes's Marco Capaldo gown is one of the hottest gowns we've seen this year. You won't need much more than a sleek ponytail and dewy skin to work with this look—and of course a few squats in the weeks leading up to your big day.

Blake Lively Debuts Growing Baby Bump at 2016 Cannes Film Festival

In case there was ever any doubt, Blake Lively's new maternity wear is in full swing, and it's taking the 2016 Cannes Film Festival red carpet by storm. The actress, who's expecting her second child with her actor husband Ryan Reynolds, was simply glowing among her Café Society cast members as she stepped out for the premiere of the new movie in a shimmery, body-hugging gown that, more importantly, made no effort to hide her baby bump.

The body-conscious, spaghetti strap, trumpet gown hugged Lively's growing pregnancy curves as the actress gracefully walked the red carpet in silver sandals with a slight train following behind her. Lively wore her blonde hair down around her shoulders with a side part and loose waves. Simply put: She looked stunning (no shocker there).

"Blake is absolutely thrilled and so is Ryan," a source close to Lively, 28, and her husband Ryan Reynolds, 39, told People in April following their super exciting pregnancy news.

While this isn't Lively's first strut on the red carpet since news of her second pregnancy broke in April, we have yet to catch a good, solid glimpse of the actress' baby bump. (And, needless to say, we were intrigued.) Earlier this month, we were anxious to see her Met Gala maternity look, but Lively covered up her belly with a lovely pink A-line Burberry gown.

Wednesday morning at Cannes, the actress squashed our hopes again by stepping out for the festival in a fire-engine-red, form-fitting jumpsuit that only slightly hinted at something more than a food baby.

So alas! Reynolds and Lively's second, sure-to-be-adorable child has made its Hollywood debut. The new parents welcomed their first daughter, James, at the end of 2014 and, during Lively's first pregnancy, we got to see ALL the glamorous maternity looks from the starlet. And given her latest ensemble, it seems that we can expect Lively to pull out the stops, yet again, for her second time as a mommy-to-be.

Ryan Reynolds Shares the First Photo of Baby James!

It's about time! Five months after Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively welcomed daughter James into the world, they finally (kind of) debuted their baby girl on social media. Instagram newbie Reynolds shared a heartwarmingly adorable photo of James clutching his thumb in her tiny hand.

"Thumb wrestling isn't always fair. Curiously, my hand is the small one," he humorously captioned the photo. Sure, we can't actually see baby James's face, but come on — with those two as parents, is there any doubt that she's gorgeous? Reynolds once said that James had him "wrapped around her finger," but clearly, the opposite is true.

Reynolds only joined Instagram three days ago, but if he keeps up this habit of sharing cute morsels of his home life, we'll have no complaints. His previous hesitance to share photos of James seems about right, given the rest of their behavior since becoming parents. They waited several weeks to announce their daughter's birth, and even longer to reveal her name.

Not that they haven't had fun with it along the way. In their own sweet way, they've been plenty open about how much they love having a little one running around. "Our baby in particular is, we think, allergic to sleep," Reynolds said in March of James's up-all-night behavior.

Meanwhile, Lively's made jokes of her own about how having a baby has changed her life. "With all the wardrobe changes, one thing I hadn't accounted for was that I didn't have time to pump," she said of managing motherhood amid her busy schedule promoting The Age of Adaline last month. "So my proportions definitely started to, shall we say, increase throughout the day."

Blake Lively is noticing how hard it is to juggle her three important jobs: mom, wife, and movie star! Especially when she's expected to look like her best self on multiple red carpets each day.

The Age of Adaline star recently joked about her changing responsibilities while on tour to promote her new, highly anticipated movie. In between premieres and press calls, James's mother, who's still breastfeeding her little girl, needs to find time to pump so she can nurse her newborn daughter. Even more pressing, the fact that this fashion icon's, um, measurements change throughout the day thanks to her lack of pumping. So in other words: each day, Lively's cup size fluctuates and the forever-flawless style icon is left to face a potential fashion faux pas.

"With all the wardrobe changes, one thing I hadn't accounted for was that I didn't have time to pump," Lively told People of her busy schedule. "So my proportions definitely started to, shall we say, increase throughout the day."

The style-setter, who's a perennial fixture and inspiration on the red carpet, even nearly had a wardrobe malfunction. "I walked out onstage for one appearance in an outfit that had fit perfectly when I tried it on many hours earlier, but by the time it got on me, I thought, 'Oh, no! This isn't going to cover them up at all!'" she hilariously admitted. "I was very worried about a wardrobe malfunction."

Despite her fears, we know for a fact that she stuns in no matter what she wears — a little extra spillage and all.

Celeb Bridal Beauty Looks Blake Lively Olivia Palermo Elizabeth Olsen

Blake Lively makes her red-carpet return with bombshell waves, while Elizabeth Olsen goes for a dramatic side part, and Olivia Palermo opts for beachy tresses. Here, the red-carpet beauty looks we loved this week.

Blake Lively at the New York premiere of The Age of Adaline: Want to give old-school waves a modern twist? Try Blake's take, which features a French braid on the side. It's both fashionable and functional, since it will help keep your hair out of your face. Another way Blake keeps this look fresh: Instead of pairing her hairstyle with siren-red lipstick and rosy blush, she went for a deep nude, highlighter on her cheekbones, and shimmery neutral eye shadow.

Elizabeth Olsen at the European premiere of The Avengers: Age of Ultron: Much like her chic, older sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley, Elizabeth typically favors understated hair and makeup. She made her style work for the red carpet by adding a deep side part to an undone, wispy chignon. (This style is also perfect for showing off a high, embellished neckline.) Worn with black liquid eyeliner, bronze eye shadow, and rose-tinted lips, her versatile beauty look would work in just about any setting.

Olivia Palermo at the AMNH Museum Dance: The style maven usually goes for perfectly polished hair, but she changed it up this time with center-parted, bohemian waves, complete with little braids. (Perhaps she was inspired by her beachy, seashell Valentino dress? In any case, if we were getting married on the beach, this is one look we'd wear head to toe.) Her signature makeup — glowing, seemingly airbrushed skin, brown eye makeup, bronzed cheeks, and nude lips — ensured she was still evening appropriate.

Blake Lively wears one of our favorite bridal designers, Sarah Hyland is a breath of fresh spring air with floral embroidery, and Kate Mara oozes romance in lace. Here, the red-carpet looks brides should take notice of this week.

Blake Lively at The Age of Adaline New York Premiere: The actress opted for popular bridal designer Monique Lhuillier, but she chose a non-traditional color in a fiery red leather and lace gown. Though this look is surely for the bride who wants something completely out of the box, there's no doubt all eyes will be on you. (Think about how this would look in white!) Side-swept retro-inspired waves and Lorraine Schwartz jewels provided the perfect complements to a bold and spirited ensemble.

Sarah Hyland at the See You In Valhalla Los Angeles Premiere How does one make florals modern and fun? Well, equal parts Oscar de la Renta and Sarah Hyland will do the trick. The actress stuck to the classic color combination of black and white with a floral appliqué dress from the famed designer — a great blend between a timeless palette and vibrant detailing. This is just the type of dress for a modern bride-to-be at her rehearsal dinner.

Kate Mara at the 2015 Will Rogers Pioneer of the Year Dinner: This is no typical lace LWD: a bow at the neck injected flirty femininity while sheer detailing lent a hint of sensuality to the Valentino dress. A modern edge was infused by way of metallic accessories. We love this look for an engagement party or bridal shower.

Ryan Reynolds’s Reaction to His Daughter’s Birth Is Priceless

It's no secret that Ryan Reynolds adores his three-month-old daughter, James. But the actor recently opened up to People about just how joyous her birth was for him — and you should be prepared with tissues, too.

The last time he cried, the Woman in Gold star told People, was when "my baby [was] being born. I was inconsolable. I was moved to instant sprinkler head."

The first-time dad went into greater detail during a recent appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman, describing just how much he loves his wife, Blake Lively, and their baby girl. "I used to say to [Blake], 'I would take a bullet for you. I could never love anything as much as I love you.' I would say that to my wife," he said. "And the second I looked in that baby's eyes, I knew in that exact moment that if we were ever under attack, I would use my wife as a human shield to protect that baby."

Don't be fooled, though — the 38-year-old actor still adores his wife. He admitted to People that Lively had called him "sexy" on a recent morning. "I left the house a little taller," he said.

It wasn't until mid-February that the couple released to the media their baby's name. Until then, rumors flew around that the girl's name was Violet, despite Reynolds adamantly denying it. In fact, for many months, there was speculation over the baby's sex because of how quiet the couple kept her birth.

Blake Lively Pokes Fun at Husband Ryan Reynolds for Flirting with This Actress

 Blake Lively, Celebrity, Celebrity Weddings, News  Comments Off on Blake Lively Pokes Fun at Husband Ryan Reynolds for Flirting with This Actress
Apr 062015
 

Ryan Reynolds may have a beautiful wife at home, but that isn't stopping him from sharing a flirty relationship with his on-screen lady, too. But his work crush (and Blake Lively's reaction to their connection) is probably not who or what you would expect. As it turns out, 27-year-old Lively has found a steep competitor in 69-year-old Helen Mirren.

According to People, both Reynolds and his Woman in Gold costar have been talking one another up while promoting their latest film, and Lively has started to notice. Yesterday she posted the above photo to Instagram, writing, "Should I be concerned that my husband's never looked at me this way?.. #WhereAreThoseEyesWanderingReynolds #HelenMirrenIStheSexiestWomanAlive #WomanInGold."

See More: Who Called Ryan Reynolds An Amazing Father?

The message was all in good fun. Even still, there's no denying that Reynolds and Mirren hit it off in a totally platonic way while shooting their upcoming flick. Reynolds even told Vulture that he did, in fact, flirt with Mirren on set. "Everybody who meets with her flirts with her," Reynolds said. "I don't care who you are — guy, girl, fat, skinny, tall, short, gay, straight — everybody flirts with Helen Mirren."

Mirren obviously feels similarly smitten with Reynolds. She recently dished on what it's like working with the new dad to baby James in an interview with People. "You know, he makes a girl feel good," the actress said. "Some guys don't. They're macho and attractive, but they make you feel awkward. Ryan just makes you feel so great. He's just so generous in his masculinity. He happens to be hunky and gorgeous and everything as well, but when you get a beautiful combination of the two? He is wonderful."

We have a sinking suspicion that Reynolds is still happy to return home to Lively every night, though!

If there's one thing Ryan Reynolds seems to love, it's being dad. The newly-minted father can't stop gushing over his daughter with wife Blake Lively, James. And it turns out, others are taking notice of his doting-dad habits.

In his latest film, Woman in Gold, Reynolds plays a devoted father, and those on set with him believe that's not only true of his on-screen character. "I can't imagine a better dad than Ryan," Woman in Gold's director Simon Curtis told People at the movie's New York premiere last night. "He's such a sweet, funny guy. He seems besotted with his new baby, and I think he'll be a remarkable father."

Not only director Simon Curtis, but lawyer Randy Schoenberg, whom Reynolds plays in the film, agrees that he's going to be a stellar father.

"I think he's gonna be a great dad," Schoenberg also told People. "You could see him holding a baby, interacting with babies in the movie. And you could tell he was thinking about it."

Reynolds and Lively have been nothing short of over-the-moon ever since little James was born. Reynolds has even been one to infuse a bit of humor in the mad dash to find out his baby's name, first joking that it was Excalibur Anaconda and Bruce Jenner, and then, right before officially confirming James's name on Today, saying he calls her "Butternut Summer Squash." It's nice to hear from someone other than the new parents themselves that Reynolds's parenting skills are just as serious as his jokes.
