When you're married to Ryan Reynolds, it must be tough to compete with his humor. But people forget that Blake Lively is, in fact, well-versed in the land of comedy. I mean, no, she doesn't have any comedy film or TV credits, but she holds her own against her trolling, funny-man husband.
Which was further proven when she and Reynolds went to mail in their ballots last week. They each posted near-identical photos on Instagram to mark the occasion, as it was Reynolds' first time voting in a U.S. presidential election as a dual citizen, but with one key difference: In Reynolds' photo, Lively wasn't wearing any shoes. In her photo, she...was.
The internet quickly caught on to the fact that Lively had edited her shoes on -- but not just any shoes. She chose to sketch Louboutins, as eagle-eyed fans caught the iconic red sole detail she added to her drawing, even tagging the designer in the photo as if she was actually wearing their shoes.
Cat being so obviously out of the bag, she blasted herself on her Instagram stories, offering Louboutin her services as a "barefoot iPhone doodler with vast experience." The heels were actually her second choice, as Reynolds also shared an IG story where Lively had drawn on Louboutin boots.
"Can you tell I was so happy to get outta a onesie and vote. Sure it was an absentee drop off ballot with a mask covering my look. But dammit (sic) I exercised my right to vote. And to not wear shoes that ruined my outfit," Lively also wrote on her stories. USA! USA! USA!
It was sort of a faux pas, but one that's so endearing that we couldn't even be mad about it. Instead, we laughed along, and now fans are even taking it more in stride -- ha! -- than we thought.
The hashtag #LivelyxLouboutin is trending on Instagram, where users are drawing designer footwear onto their own photos in honor of Lively's little slip...and the renderings are actually pretty dang good.
Perhaps Lively can branch off into pet footwear once her "brand" really takes off?
And she definitely has a market in mens' pants.
Is it just me, or is Blake onto something for future virtual fashion shows, here?
