Get ready for some stylish Blake Lively with her upcoming movie “A Simple Favor.” The movie opens September 14th, and it couldn’t be better timed, as we’ll be just coming off New York Fashion Week. We expect to see Blake at many a front row seat too!

The upcoming book-turned-movie centers around Stephanie (Anna Kendrick), a mommy vlogger who seeks the truth behind her friend Emily’s (Blake Lively) sudden disappearance from their small town. The stylish thriller is filled with twists and betrayals, secrets and revelations, love and loyalty, murder and revenge. The movie also features Emily’s husband Sean, who happens to be the sought-after actor Henry Golding from “Crazy Rich Asians.”

Costume designer Renee Ehrlich Kalfus drew inspiration from Helmut Newton for her creations, updating a masculine wardrobe with feminine touches.

Fashionista Blake Lively has plenty of opportunities to show off her style, and she teased the movie with her “Where is Emily” Instagram stunt where she deleted her account, stopped following hubby Ryan Reynolds, and started following 27 mere mortals named Emily!
