In the early days of 2023, Colleen Hoover shared the exciting news that her bestselling 2016 novel, It Ends With Us, was making its way to the big screen. Justin Baldoni and Blake Lively were officially confirmed as the lead actors in January of that year.
Recently, on Friday, January 12, captured on the streets of Jersey City, the on-screen couple, portraying Lily Bloom and Ryle Kincaid, shot a passionate scene.

They engaged in a steamy sidewalk kiss mirroring a scene from the book where Kincaid sports a onesie for free beer during a Boston Bruins game at a nearby bar.
Amidst the hustle and bustle of the film set, Blake Lively once again caught our attention with her unconventional style clad in mismatched camouflage.
Blake Lively’s Mismatched Camouflage Outfit
Wrapped up in layers of camouflage, Blake Lively brought a unique flair to the romantic scene. Her outfit seamlessly blended three camo prints, featuring a button-up shirt beneath an oversized jacket.
The 36-year-old American actress completed the look with 1960s Beo-Gam camo fatigue pants, stylishly tucked into beige Grenson Doris burnished suede Chelsea boots.
Adding a touch of glam, Lively adorned herself with various gold jewelry – a stack of rings and dangly earrings – and carried essentials in a brown Gucci Horsebit 1955 textured leather shoulder bag.

Opting for a simple makeup style, The Shallows star embraced her character’s fiery persona with parted red hair falling in loose waves down the middle.
Meanwhile, Justin Baldoni’s bold on-set attire was equally attention-grabbing, donning a vibrant teal onesie adorned with rainbows and unicorns.
Paired with a black T-shirt, a fluffy pink tail, and Nike sneakers, the 39-year-old American actor’s look added a layer of quirkiness to the on-set fashion extravaganza.
Same Day Shooting a Steamy Scene
In another scene shot on the same day, the duo underwent a wardrobe change, engaging in heated arguments and tender kisses.
Blake Lively, embodying the character of Lily Bloom with her distinctive red crimped hair, graced the set in a strapless muted brown tea dress.
Paired with a buttercup yellow shirt, its oversized sleeves were casually unbuttoned and tied into a knot at the waist, creating a laid-back yet stylish look.

The Age of Adaline star’s ensemble was completed with matching brown, shiny, tall boots, oversized hoop earrings, and an array of beaded bracelets.
On the other side of the scene, Baldoni, as Ryle Kincaid, donned an all-black outfit, including a black sweater, dark pants, and dress shoes.
His on-set appearance was intensified by a bandage on his arm, costume makeup, and fake blood on his face – clear indicators of a dramatic fight scene.
Another Quirky Fashion Moment for Blake Lively’s Character
On January 11, Blake Lively showcased her character Lily Bloom’s most straightforward attire while on set in New Jersey – opting for a denim-on-denim ensemble.
The Rhythm Section actress embraced a patchwork button-up layered over a white crop top, complemented by a long shearling-lined denim jacket.
Her casual yet stylish look was completed with blue cargo pants effortlessly tucked into heeled Tod’s lace-up suede platform boots. These boots, featuring an almond toe and a side zip fastening, added a vibrant touch to her quirky appearance.

As fans are left intrigued and confused by Lily Bloom’s eclectic wardrobe, 44-year-old American author Colleen Hoover addressed the confusion during Book Bonanza on June 23, 2023.
Per Today, she defended the choices by stating, “I don’t remember describing outfits at all. I don’t care what they have on. In my head, it’s about the conversation they’re having and the story.”
She urged fans to be patient, assuring that all would be revealed in time, adding, “You’ve seen a couple of outfits that are completely out of context. I’m not worried about it.”
