Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively star in A Simple Favour, a tale that centres around mummy blogger, Stephanie (Anna), who is embroiled in a school gates mystery when her frenemy, Emily (Blake), goes missing. Dun. Dun. Dun. Think Gone Girl meets slapstick comedy – it’s great!
The film is finger-clicking-good with two sassy independent women trying to outsmart one another. That’s something that isn’t lost on Anna Kendrick, either. “I watched it and I was like, ‘I am so good in this! Oh my god honey, you are so talented,” the Pitch Perfect star told GLAMOUR this week.
However, whilst the real winners are women in this movie, what Blake Lively is about to do for a power suit is Oscar worthy in itself. As a high-powered executive, Blake’s boardroom wardrobe centres around many variations on the classic three-piece suit – sometimes even accessorised with a cane, naturally. So, Blake, what are the secrets to a boss-ass look? “I don’t think you have to show everything to be sexy in a suit so button it up to here,” Blake stated and, boy, would she know, if her latest style is anything to go by.
