Instead of the regular sheer and naked gowns, we saw a practical, fashion-forward dress on Blake Lively at Golden Globes 2017. Check it out!
Looks like fashion is fast catching up with the modern woman’s needs – we do need to carry our phones (and other stuff) at parties, you know! So how come men get pockets and we don’t?? All old-fashioned, if you ask me!
But lo and behold – instead of the regular sheer and nude gowns on the red carpet, we saw a celebrity at Golden Globes 2017 whose gown was sexy – and practical. Now that’s something Shilpa Ahuja loves. Muhahaha! >:) Here’s none other than the once Gossip Girl – Blake Lively with her gown with pockets:
The velvet gown with a long train has a gold detailing on the armholes and neckline. And the pockets are not some concealed hidden meek things, no, sir! These are statement pockets. More like “hey-look-at-me” pockets! I likeee! Me wantey a gown like this!
What do you think of these pockets? Would you like to see them in mini-cocktail dresses, too? And, if you had them in your dress, would you put your stuff in them and make them look bulgy? I certainly wouldn’t mind going hands-free for an evening!
Way to go, Golden Globes 2017, for showing us something other than cringe-worthy prostitute-like fashion! And Blake Lively, we expected nothing less from you. Looking stunning, as per ushe! Also loving those matching bracelets with the huge green rock!
Well, comment below!

Fashion has traditionally been for the rich, white, thin woman. That’s how it evolved over centuries and that’s how it’s been represented in fashion media. But Shilpa believes that with the changing role of women in the society, fashion has changed, too. She believes that fashion is for everyone, regardless of their age, gender, color, body type and background. So she translates runway fashion into easy style advice that one can incorporate into their daily lives.
