Blake Lively’s 7 best red carpet moments

Ahead of the release of new film The Rhythm Section, Blake Lively is back on the red carpet and looking as incredible as ever.

At a special screening of the movie in New York, the 32-year-old pulled out all the stops in a strapless black velvet gown, which she teamed with long black leather gloves and multi-strap boots.

Adding a splash of sparkle to the all-black ensemble, the actor accessorised with a statement pearl necklace.

The Gossip Girl star brought boho glam to the Elle Style Awards 2011, where she picked up the Best TV Star gong wearing a bright blue tiered dress by Emilio Pucci, paired with pink peep-toe heels.

Lively loves a bit of princess dress drama, and this white one-shoulder Marchesa gown with silver embroidery is a prime example. Her matching glittery slippers are even giving us Cinderella vibes.

3. Met Gala 2013

Always one of the best-dressed celebs at the Met Gala, Lively manages to stick to the theme while still looking uber-chic. For the ‘Punk: Chaos to Couture’ theme in 2013, her jade green Gucci gown had a hint of punk styling thanks to its choppy black train.

4. Met Gala 2014

The 2014 Met Gala, which honoured couturier Charles James, was the perfect opportunity for Lively to showcase old Hollywood glamour.

Posing with husband Ryan Reynolds, the actor chose Gucci again, donning a beautiful blush pink beaded gown with cape detailing. Glossy, side-swept curls completed the look.

5. Met Gala 2018

But by far Lively’s best Met Gala look came in 2018, with the theme ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’.

This time, the actor teamed up with Versace on a heavily embellished gold and burgundy dress inspired by liturgical clothing. The stunning gown’s train was so big it had to be carried up the steps of the museum by three people.

6. MTV Video Music Awards

The promotional tour for 2018’s A Simple Favour was a fashion tour de force, with Lively taking inspiration from her character in the movie with a series of bold tailored looks.

At the MTV Video Music Awards,  she chose an all-white suit by Ralph & Russo, which combined a sharp-shouldered jacket with billowing pleated trousers.

After years of flowing gowns, it was refreshing to see Lively switching it up. We can’t wait to see how her style continues to evolve in future.
