Naturally, Lively was very kind in response, writing back, “Nothing but love. I don’t expect everyone to like it. Fashion that creates a difference of opinions is the fun part. I totally understand the missed humor. I do the same thing sometimes. Just lookin’ to encourage women to do what men do without being teased for it. Yes, even in a space as material as fashion. It all starts somewhere… and everyone’s voice counts.”
This isn’t the first time Lively has commented on her recent style statements. Earlier this month, Lively shared the story of wearing a sheer shirt on the red carpet and thinking a reporter was commenting on her chest. In reality, he was talking about her “tweets.”
“I was so relieved it was about my mind, and then after I was like, ‘But how’s [my chest]… How are they?” she quipped while on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
