Blake Lively made an impression at the 2017’s MET Gala.
For our nostalgia-saga we will talk about this incredible custom Atelier Versace ensemble that could really represent the theme of that year: Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between. As I see it, she could embody the mix of a human and a bird, also, the silhouette of the dress resembles that of a mermaid. What about a human emerging from the sea?
(See the different choice of colors for the feathers which could represent the sea foam and the water while the body is emerging from it).
I’d say that it was an ambiguous dress, on theme with the event–something people often do not take into account.
Blake is also known for her diverse choice of roles, very different from her Gossip Girl days. Have you seen The Rhythm Section, A Simple Favor or All I See Is You? Well, if you have, take a moment to reflect on it–there can really be an intricate explanation for her choice.
Makeup artist Kristofer Buckle used L’Oréal Paris makeup on her face (click here for all the details) while hairstylist Rod Ortega made sure to secure a long sleek ponytail with some accents of Lively-waves.
She was decked in over $3.5 million worth of Lorraine Schwartz and Ofira Jewels (178 carats of blue sapphires).
When it came to the nails, nail artist Elle told US Magazine: “I wanted the look to be clean, but also opulent. After painting two coats of L’Oréal’s beige as a base coat, I dipped a brush into raw 24k gold dust to create an ombré design that was stronger at the tip and faded down towards the base of the nail. It creates crazy shine—it looks like an actual piece of jewelry that becomes one on your nail.”
