The Met Gala & Blake Lively

MET GALA * The quick 411…..

The first Monday of May is aka “Met Gala Monday.”The Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala and also known as the Met Ball, is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s Costume Institute in New York City. It marks the opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit. Each year’s event celebrates the theme of that year’s Costume Institute exhibition, and the exhibition sets the tone for the formal dress of the night, since guests are expected to choose their fashion to match the theme of the exhibit. The theme for this year’s event is Camp Notes in Fashion.

Actress Blake Lively (yes, the Blake Lively married to Ryan Reynolds and pregnant with their third child-why do I know this?) has always been on of my absolute favorite Style Stars to watch at the Met Gala for two reasons: 1. Blake brings it! (Big time) Blake continues to wear the most beautiful gowns that are tasteful and elegant. 2. Blake styles herself! Yes!!! You heard me she picks her own apparel and styles herself. I’m sure she does have help when it comes to hair and make up but she chooses all her gowns with out some fancy schmancy A- list stylist. How can we not love a girl that has great taste and trusts herself with her style selections! Here’s a brief review of Blake’s Met Gala moments (and gowns) throughout the years. Enjoy!
