Hello Blake fans! A chapter is closing and before we open our arms to a new chapter, i thought it would be nice to go back in time and take a look at how this year was for Blake with A YEAR IN REVIEW post! This has been quite a busy for Blake as not only she was busy traveling around promoting A Simple Favor, but also filmed The Rhythm Section. — Now, let’s start our post, shall we?

2018 begun with The Rhythm Section moving to New York for some more filming, before an injury forced the production to stop while Blake recovered. But that didn’t stop her from attending some fashion events and as always, we were blessed with Blake’s fashion style.

April arrived with Blake’s trip to CinemaCon alongside Paul Feig and Anna Kendrick. The trio was in Las Vegas to promote their movie, A Simple Favor and during the presentation, the girls just happened to… “Poison” the movie’s director and producer. After all the fun and games, heads turned when Blake walked the steps of the MET in May. She was named one of the best dressed at the MET Gala and honestly, no complains there because she killed it.

May was also marked by the theatrical release of Deadpool 2, and of course, we just couldn’t pass on talking about Blake attending the film’s New York Premiere and supporting her husband, Mr. Deadpool himself, Ryan Reynolds.

Blake went back to filming The Rhythm Section in June, this time in Spain (before heading to Ireland to wrap up shooting in July). It was also in June that it was reported that Blake had been invited to join The Academy of Motion Pictures.

Promotion for A Simple Favor kicked-off in August, in New York as Blake attended a Cocktail Party for the movie followed by a Photocall and Press Conference. It was also the start of Blake’s iconic suits because let’s face it, Blake’s wardrobe choice for this particular press tour was a blessing.

Blake also attended MTV Video Music Awards, the talk shows Good Morning America and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and the New York Premiere before heading to Europe for the UK and Paris Premiere! The press tour for A Simple Favor ended on September 19, after Blake and Anna Kendrick visited the French talk show C À Vous.

In October it was reported that Blake, along with Amazon, were developing a fashion-focused scripted series. Blake would be producing the series and as of starring in it? Still a mystery. It was also announced that she would be guest starring on Sesame Street Special, which would air on HBO in November! That’s it for news-related but before we move onto Photoshoots and Fan Favorites, i’d just like to bless you with Blake’s September and December looks for Fashion events, in particular, Christian Dior, Versace and Chanel fashion shows.

It’s fair to say that when it came to photoshoots, we didn’t got the kind of shoots we expected and instead, we got portraits however they were just as beautiful and we’re always thankful for more of Blake and Anna Kendrick.

Fan Favorites

In order to do something special this year, i asked on the site’s twitter @solivelycom for favorite Blake looks, photoshoot and the project they most enjoyed (and are looking forward to). A huge thank you to those who contributed, and now onto our favorites:

  • Favorite Looks

  • Favorite Photoshoots

  • Favorite Projects

As of projects, we can’t deny that A Simple Favor was named a favorite. The movie was absolutely amazing, and Blake’s performance in it was definitely something we had never seen before from Blake and it made us want to see her in more roles like this one. As for projects looking forward to? The Rhythm Section, of course.

That’s it for 2018, everyone! 2019 promises to be just as eventful as this year, with the theatrical release for The Rhythm Section aimed for February 22, 2019. But also, The Husband’s Secret is currently slated as announced on IMDB but we should expect filming to happen in 2019 as well.
