Blake Lively was having none of it when asked about her outfit at a Power of Women event

The question ‘Who are you wearing’ is one that countless female celebrities have had to endure over the years.

But, in case you missed it, actress Blake Lively expertly shut down a reporter last weekend when the pointless, sexist question was put to her.

Lively was being honoured at Variety's Power of Women event for her work with the Child Rescue Coalition against child sex trafficking and pornography. And yet she was being asked about what was wearing.

When the reporter asked about her go-to “power outfit”, the actress answered: “Really? At this event, you're asking me about my outfit? Seriously... Would you ask a man that?

“I'm here so we... Become more aware, and that we change, and that we build (women up). So, you can ask me another question.”
