Blake Lively showed us why she's Hollywood's latest bombshell last night at the LA premiere of her new film Savages (a crime drama / thriller boasting 'strong grisly violence').

The gorgeous star wowed in a beige Zuhair Murad Couture gown covered in black bugle bead stripes that echoed the contours of the body, dissolving into panels on the waist to sculpt and emphasise curves.

When you look like Blake, it's probably quite difficult to get it wrong when it comes to red carpet dressing, but this girl knows instinctively what works for her, and makes sure that even the most extravagant gown doesn't wear her.

As the face of Gucci's latest fragrance, we can no doubt expect her to wear some amazing Gucci Premiere gowns in the future, but for this occasion we're glad she turned to Lebanese designer Murad. This dress and this girl were made for each other!

Blake teamed the dramatic dress with 1940s style sideswept waves, big lashes and red lips, plus a vintage style manicure with natural half-moons - talk about attention to detail!
