Blake Lively went with another Versace ensemble for her Met Gala afterparty look, this time wearing a red beaded micro minidress by the designer while hitting the party circuit in New York City last night. With its corset-like bodice, which featured a black-and-blood-red beaded hemline, the dress couldn’t be more different from her red carpet look from earlier in the evening. The embroidered sleeves also featured beaded tassels, and the neckline had a classic black lace detail. The 34-year-old actress accessorized the “Moulin Rouge”-inspired outfit with a pair of black strappy Christian Louboutin heels. She also wore multiple rings that featured black and red stones.
Lively started off the night in a custom Atelier Versace gown that was full of hidden meanings. There was a giant bow on one side, which created a long train in the back. The rose-gold dress was actually inspired by the Statue of Liberty: as Lively walked up the stairs at the Met, the copper-colored train was untied to show off a gorgeous teal hue, which symbolized the oxidization of the statue from copper to blue. There was even a constellation-like design on the train of the gown, which Lively said was inspired by NYC’s Grand Central Station. She accessorized that look with a bejeweled tiara, complete with a small braid, dangling earrings, and satin opera gloves that matched the big bow on her gown. She also wore gold Christian Louboutin heels and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.
