Met Gala fans are obsessed with how ‘smooth’ Blake Lively’s outfit change was at the event.
The actor and 2022 Met Gala co-chair, 34, showcased two different looks on the red carpet, turning heads with a bespoke Versace copper gown which transformed into a sparkling sea-foam green ensemble in a Disney-style turn.
Check out Blake’s dress transformation here:
Her first outfit was adorned with a large copper bow around the waist of her dress with matching arm length gloves and a crown.
The Gossip Girl star then paused during her red carpet walk to unveil her second look of the evening with the help of some assistants, revealing a baby blue skirt underneath with matching reversed gloves.
And fans have praised the ‘smooth’ look, with one tweeting: “This glove change is so smooth! Just loved Blake Lively’s dress unveiling #MetGala.”
Another fan echoed: “No one telling me HOW Blake Lively's GLOVES changed colours (I just saw the video and feel a little let down because I thought the dress colour change was gonna be more Hunger Games-ian) but still, did she just sneakily change gloves?”
“Incredible. The artistic genius of those who made this dress! Bravo,” a different fan wrote on the social media site.
“Blake Lively really ate up,” another onlooker tweeted. “Everything’s on point! She understood the assignment.”
“Now this is how you do it,” someone else wrote.
In an interview with The Cut, Blake explained how her dress was a tribute to “New York City architecture,” including the Statue of Liberty, which was originally copper but oxidized and became the teal colour we recognise today.
"This is the constellation from Grand Central Terminal; this is the Empire State Building; this is the Statue of Liberty," Lively gestured towards her stunning gown.
The elementals of architecture were even brought through to her Lorraine Schwartz jewellery: "The crown has seven tiers—the Statue of Liberty has seven rays representing the sun's rays—and the seven continents," Blake explained.
"It also has 25 windows, so Lorraine put in 25 stones at the bottom."
