Mrs. Reynolds or as we know our favorite Gossip Girl Blake Lively, is easily one of Hollywood’s most fashionable living icons. She was on the scene at the just concluded MET Gala, looking as regal as always in Custom Versace. While her outfit turned heads on the famous steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, its was its encrypted and customized message paying homage to her absent family that got the fashion insiders buzzing. Details…details…details!!! The great ones are always keen about the details. Keep reading and see more of Blake’s custom look.
Blake looked exceptional as she arrived the 2018 Met Ball in a richly embroidered ox-blood and gold detailed Versace number, anchored by some Christian Loubotuin heels, a gold halo-esque headpiece some bright green earrings and a stack of chunky gold bracelets.
She posed for the cameras, giving us a full glimpse of her Versace embroidered long-trained gown and her stunning figure. Blake’s outfit was said to have been inspired by the painting of the Infant Jesus of Prague and reportedly took a whole 600 hours to create by hand.
Blake paired her outfit with a matching rhinestone embellished clutch by Hungarian designer Judith Leiber. Speaking about the clutch, if you look a little closer you would see it has been custom made to include the Reynolds family Crest. The Reynolds crest is in the shape of a cross, and on each of the four points there’s a jewel with a letter in the middle: B, R, J, and I—the first initials of each member of the Reynolds-Lively family (Blake, Ryan, Ines and James). Talk about carrying her family with her literally!
A closer look at Blake’s custom-made clutch, shows that it had been intricately designed with two different embellished scenes on both sides. On the front, it’s classic “sacred heart” iconography behind a veiled woman, keeping with the theme of this year’s Costume Institute exhibit, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”.
On the other, there’s a riff on a medieval family crest, which, at the very center of a scroll, reads “Reynolds.”
Blake looked spectacular and she never fails to exude grace and glam and stand out in everything she does. After all, she is a Hollywood Royal.
