Blake Lively Missed the Met Gala So the Internet Decided to Look Back at Her Iconic Looks
Gossip Girl star Blake Lively missed the Met Gala this year and the Internet was clearly none too pleased with her absence. Blake Lively, a Met Gala veteran of sorts, has been serving up one hit look after another. She has also been matching her outfits with the color of the carpet. The internet, which is a huge fan of Blake’s Met Gala style, took the opportunity to look back at her iconic looks, especially this 2022 one. Blake Lively who was one of the hosts at last year’s Met Gala wore a pink Atelier Versace gown that was draped with a bow and later opened up to reveal a blue layer. His outfit was meant to celebrate the architectural wonders of New York. Her outfit changes mirrored the changes to New York landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building over the years.
One fan wrote, “No interest in the #MetGala this year because my Queen and Queen of Met Gala outfits Blake Lively isn’t going to attend. Still remembering her magical outfit from last year.”
