Times When Blake Lively Slayed The Red Carpet Looks
2022 The Adam Project Screening
Blake Lively recently joined her husband Ryan Reynolds for the New York screening of his upcoming film, The Adam Project. She wore a pastel multi-colored couture gown designed by Atelier Versace. The dress featured a high leg slit, a drape at back and a plunging neckline.
Blake paired it with statement earrings and used a denim jacket to layer the dress. The dress looked subtle but very fascinating with the multiple colors and minimal accessories. This flowy sweet pastel dress was a perfect choice for her since she was pregnant during the event and covered the bump just fine.
2022 Met Gala
The 2022 Met Gala had Gilded Glamor as the theme where Blake Lively walked the red carpet as a co-chair and set the bars too high for us at first sight. The dress designed by Atelier Versace was inspired by New York and gave us the surprise of our lives when it transformed into a new dress within a few seconds!
This was one of most mesmerizing outfits Blake Lively had given us and it seems she raises our expectations with each following year. The dress along with the gloves and an oversized ribbon which were all copper in color, instantly changed to blue. The design was to pay homage to the Empire State building and we think she did justice to the outfit!
2021 Free Guy Premiere
We did not expect Blake to look this exotic in a pink cut out dress but she surely served us with amazing sparkly apparel during the ‘Free Guy’ New York Premiere in 2021. The Prabal Gurung dress and Lorraine Schwartz jewels look extremely chic along with the dress.
For the bottoms, Blake went for Loubutins and carried a star shaped clutch on hand. One of the things we can take note of is the diamond ponytail Blake did along with the outfit. This cut-out dress flaunts her toned physique and abs while the pretty pink color brings out her charming personality altogether. The shiny dress was sure to grab all the attention without doing much.
2020 Rhythm Section Screening
Versace might fit Blake Lively perfectly but we can all agree how this black Dolce Gabbana outfit is just meant for her! The black velvet drape was just rightly paired with leather opera gloves. Looks pretty sassy, doesn’t it now?
For a contrast, the all-black look was complemented with Lorraine Schwartz Diamond and Pearl Necklace Featuring a 50-carat Colombian Emerald. As for the bottoms, the Christian Louboutin ‘Fabiola’ Black Leather Over-the-knee boots do look amazing completing the classy all-black look.
2019 Pokemon Detective Pikachu Premiere
Yes, we love the pop of yellow color on her matching her personality so well. The thigh slit dress with a belt was one from a summery dress collection by Retrofête. For the premiere Blake wore the outfit with some bouncy curls that brought out the playfulness in a more vibrant manner.
The color enhanced her natural beauty as she got a natural light-weight makeup. She leveled up her outfit game with accessories such as rings, bracelets and statement earrings to compliment the sequined dress. The dress also revealed that the couple was expecting their third child so the flowy summer dress came out to be the best option for the actress.
2018 Paris Fashion Week
For the Spring 2019 Dior Show, Blake Lively unexpectedly showed up at the fashion show in a modified version of her Gossip Girl Dior outfit. The look is the most Serena van der Woodsen we have ever got from her! Her Dior version was a lightweight, embroidered tulle fit-and-flare layered over a nude slip.
To complete the look, Blake slipped a detachable caged skirt swathed in sequins over her dress preshow to get a voluminous look. The ensemble was accessorized with a color block Dior purse and spiked Christian Louboutins. Blake layered a coat over the outfit to keep it a surprise. And surely we were all thrilled to see the connection between both the dresses!

Now isn’t that one enchanting dress to wear at the Met Gala? Yes this is what we expected from Blake, always the best. The Versace dress was designed for the theme ‘Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between’.
The golden bodycon dress with blue feathered tail was definitely an unexpectedly good combination to view. Needless to say, the outfit does not require any accessories to adorn it so the statement earrings work perfectly along with the outfit.
2017 Golden Globes
The golden sequined detailed outlines on the black dress give a defined look to the dress while making it stand out as well with the glamorous combination. The Versace dress was worn by Blake during the 2017 Golden Globe Awards. The neckline and, yes you’re right, the pockets were all lined with 24 carat gold.
The outfit was carefully paired with a tied up bun and an oversize Lorraine Schwartz emerald and diamond cuff provided a pop of color that was needed. Black and golden Louboutins were the ones to complete her golden and black glittering ensemble.
2016 Cafe Society Premiere
This shimmering nude dress was a custom from Versace as well. The bodycon gown is from her ‘Cafe Society’ premiere in 2016 at Cannes Film Festival. The sheer and glittery dress stood out among the crowd even with the minimalistic look and hairstyle.
The sparkles that started from the chest and flowed in a train towards the bottom looked really stunning on its own. The makeup as well as the jewelry were kept at the minimum to let the dress shine.
2016 Cannes Film Festival
The blue dress definitely makes her look like the modern age Cinderella! Blake wore this blue Atelier Versace gown with a thigh-high slit for the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. She wore this beaded dress along with silver Christian Louboutin heels and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.

2016 Met Gala
Never missing a chance to delight us at the Met, Blake wore a light pink dress for the 2016 Met Gala for the theme ‘Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology’. The flowy Burberry gown matched the carpet of the exhibition hall extremely well.
The time was when Blake was pregnant and yet turned out to look so gorgeous with that little baby bump of hers. The sheer drape looked amazing paired with the statement earrings along with them.
2015 Age of Adaline Premiere
During the premiere of Blake’s new movie in 2015, ‘The Age of Adaline’, the actress wore a sexy red feathered Monique Lhuillier dress. The dress features a sheer corset dress with features from waist down.
To pair with it, Blake chose Lorraine Schwartz jewelry that goes too well with the outfit giving a subtle glamor touch. The outfit does not need much accessories to stand out from the crowd. The fiery red is capable of showcasing her charismatic personality solely alone.
2014 Met Gala
The 2014 Met Gala might be the one to remember because it marked the first red carpet appearance of the lovely couple. But other than that, it was the form-fitting Gucci Première blush gown with a long train that did the magic.
With the theme of ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’, the couple’s Gucci outfit seemed too apt for the red carpet. The outfit brought out the Old Hollywood vibes with Blake in the dreamy rose gold train attire.
