The Met Gala is to fashion what the Oscars are to film, what the Super Bowl is to football, and has been for the past 60 years. Each spring, people anticipate the over-the-top, costume-style outfits — one regular attendee's, in particular. Blake Lively's Met Gala looks have made her a mainstay at the annual event, so here's a look back at her 10-year reign.
This actor's style has evolved so much since her Serena van der Woodsen days. Running around in her early 20s with that impeccably messy blonde hair and outfits that looked like they could have been plucked from the Gossip Girl set, she was every designer's dream girl (and still is).
While still as much of a fashion icon as she's always been, Blake Lively circa-2019 is pretty different, you can't deny. Now a symbol of elegance, sophistication, and timeless style, the actor is simply a refined version of her younger self. She's a fine wine that just keeps getting better with age.
The 31-year-old's evolving aesthetic is evident when you look at her Met Gala looks over the years. From the bright-blue Marchesa mini she sported as a single lady back in 2010 to the Versace masterpiece she debuted in 2018, now married to Ryan Reynolds with two kids, this timeline of Lively's Met Gala fashion is a nostalgic trip down memory lane.
Ahead, all of Lively's past looks to get you hyped for the May 6 ball.
