Blake Lively wants you to stop trolling her over her suits

Yes yes, we've all noticed that Blake Lively has worn a lot of suits lately. Big deal. Why would you have to wear a ballgown every time you make an appearance?

But it turns out some people just find it weird, and the actor has had enough of it.

One user commented on her Instagram, 'It's suit number 1,356 for Blake Lively's promotion of 'A Simple Favor'. This time custom pink Ralph Lauren Collection.'

To which Blake made a very very valid point: would you be sick of a man wearing too many suits?

She replied, 'Would you note man wearing lots of suits during a promo your? So why can’t a woman? Just sayinnnn. No double standards ladies.' She also added a strong arm emoji for good measure.

It turns out the commentator was making the comment in a jokey rather than taking offence, but it's still a valid point. You wouldn't ask Brad Pitt to mix things up and walk the red carpet in a tutu now would you?

Lively has previously called out reporters asking her to talk about fashion when she was promoting her work with Child Rescue Coalition.

At the time she said, 'Really? At this event, you're asking me about my outfit?" she said. "Seriously...Would you ask a man that?'

Too right.

She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
