While Blake Lively’s impeccable taste in suits proved to be too much for some people’s liking, the gorgeous star of the new film A Simple Favor proved that she was really onto something with the look. With both plaid and pant suits trending for the season, other stars like Tracee Ellis Ross and Ruth Wilson are falling into lockstep with their own versions. On the other end of the style spectrum, we were surprised to find Cardi B glammed within an inch of her life at the VMAs in a look that came straight from the Golden Age of Hollywood, while Shanina Shaik quietly served one seriously sexy all-black ensemble.

With a new Elizabeth Taylor-inspired pixie cut, gorgeous jewelry, and an eye-popping gown, Cardi B made quite the entrance at the VMAs last week.
Look by Balenciaga
All-black ensembles are anything but boring when you add as many bells and whistles to them as Shanina Shaik’s Balenciaga look conveys.

We love Blake Lively and her penchant for pantsuits. When a fan rudely suggested she fire her stylist after debuting this boldly patterned look, Lively hilariously clapped back, “Thank you for the tips, sir. Alas, I’ve tried to fire @blakelively so many times. But that b*tch just keeps coming back. She won’t leave me alone.”

Tracee Ellis Ross takes a page from Blake Lively’s book of style by rocking a power suit in a potent shade of blue.

Like Lively, Ruth Wilson, star of The Affair, has a penchant for plaids, which she highlights in a bright shade of yellow for the summer season.
