Style icons II.: Blake Lively

“You can’t really go wrong as long as you are true to yourself.” /Blake Lively/

Blake Lively became famous around 2006 after appearing in The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants and playing the role of Serena van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl. A role that she played for 6 years and Serena’s name became a synonym to IT girl. Later on she played in the Green Lantern movie where she met her future husband, Ryan Reynolds. They have two beautiful daughters, James and Inez. The last three years have been very busy for Blake but she played the main role in The Age of Adaline, The Shallows, All I See Is You, A Simple Favor and debuted in her first Woody Allen film, Café Society.
Blake uses her fame to protect children and put an end to child pornography and sex trafficking.

Pregnant and powerful. The actress chose to wear this Frozen inspired Versace dress to at Cannes in 2016…

Last year’s Met Gala’s theme was Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons, which seems a bit weird because the Japanese designer’s work is more like ‘antifashion’. She uses destroyed garments so her collections often consists of absurd dresses. Even so she is considered a brave and groundbreaking artist and has the support of Alexander Wang, Donna Karan and Jean-Paul Gaultier. 

Let’s take a look at last year’s very creative outfits:

Cara Delvingne was wearing a Chanel suit and her whole outfit had an alien kind of vibe.

The queen of every year’s Met Gala, Rihanna fulfilled the absurd theme the best with a dress from not other than Comme des Garçons itself.

On 7th May the annual fundraising event of the Metropolitan Museum in New York took place. The ball is the initiative event of the year’s fashion exhibition. It’s a very high profile event full of celebrities. Each year the ball has a theme and this year it was ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’ and holy moly it was spectacular! Here are the dresses I liked the most:

Only Rihanna can rock a Pope inspired outfit.

I always have some doubts when it comes to combining green with blue or pink and red. But I absolutely love Katherine Langford‘s cape:

Gigi Hadid looks like a beautiful swan. Or a flower. Or both.
