Blake Lively And Ryan Reynolds Named Met Gala’s Hottest CoupleBy: Val Powell - May 7, 2014
The Met Gala gathers celebrities and famous personalities from the fashion world each year to raise funds for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. It is also considered fashion’s red carpet event, and so attendees make sure to look their best when attending.
This year’s theme for the Met Gala is Charles James: Beyond Fashion. The couple who drew the most attention was husband and wife Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, who sported matching Gucci ensembles.
Lively, 26, who has graced the cover of Vogue twice already, wore a stunning silk chiffon mermaid gown with a plunging neckline and rose gold embroidery. The gown was custom-designed by Gucci.
Reynolds, 37, wore a midnight blue velvet tuxedo, also made by the Italian fashion house. The outfit was completed with a crisp white shirt and a bowtie.
“I love a train but then when I get on these stairs, I’m like, ‘Why am I wearing a train?”’” Lively said, referring to her lovely gown.
The Gossip Girl star and her Green Lantern co-star wed in a private ceremony in 2012. They are now living together in their Bedford, New York home.
Since wrapping up Gossip Girl, Lively has been focusing on chasing her personal interests. She has been spending her days preparing for the launch of her own lifestyle brand. In an interview with Elle magazine last April, Lively said that she has been enjoying having a personal life. “It’s been nice to kind of settle into my own skin and work on things I really love,” she said.
Lively will be back on the big screen next year. She is currently filming for the upcoming period drama entitled The Age of Adaline.
Other stunning couples who attended the gala include Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, Jay Z and Beyonce, Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, and David and Victoria Beckham.
