It's the end of an era! Kind of!
Blake Lively has officially returned her Instagram to normal — including re-following husband Ryan Reynolds. Phew!
In what turned out the whole thing was a publicity stunt for her movie, A Simple Favor, Blake unfollowed everyone (including Ryan who had an iconic response!) and only followed about 30 women named Emily Nelson, which is the name of Blake's character in the movie. She also hid all of her other posts, and only kept one video up — a trailer for the movie.
Well, no Blake is back and so are her posts and so is this new image of her in a cute-ass outfit that I'm coveting hardcore.
In the caption she wrote, "Reuploading my page and loving this excuse to post this 💯 outfit from last month that I forgot to post the next day. Because after a couple days it's strange to post, like you're hung up on how awesome you were 2 days ago. Which highlights how lame you are now by comparison to how cool you were when you wore that amazing outfit. So you wait a week or so for a #tbt. But then you realize it's way too soon for a #tbt, what were you thinking??! You should've just posted the next day! 💩! What are you gonna do now?!? You can't let that outfit go unposted! And then you realize something even more important— you've lost your cool entirely. Thanks social media. You've officially taken my chill." (#VERYRELATABLE #CELEBSAREJUSTLIKEUS #SOCIALMEDIAISAPLAGUE)
Now Blake only follows Ryan and one Emily Nelson — and that Emily appears to be her character from A Simple Favor.
So, yeah. It was an extended publicity bit that we all fell for and yay I love what's news in 2018 BLESS UP TECHNOLOGY!
