For those lucky enough to get an invite, the Met Gala puts serious pressure on celebs to up their fashion game and bring their best looks to the red carpet.
And while some stars didn't exactly meet the high expectations that fashion fanatics had set for them this year, one guest who came through, as always, was Blake Lively.
The actress and 2022 Met Gala co-chair, 34, has a reputation for serving among the most iconic looks each year, and this year was no exception.
Taking this year's theme of 'Gilded Glamour' very seriously, Blake had fans' jaws on the floor when she debuted not one, but two different looks on the red carpet.
With her husband and fellow co-chair on her arm, Blake immediately stole the show with her beautiful copper gown custom-made by Donatella Versace. Blake's look was complete with a large pink bow around the waist of her dress with arm length gloves and a crown to match.
And as if that weren't enough, the Gossip Girl star paused halfway through her red carpet walk to undergo a total dress transformation before our very eyes in true Disney fashion.
With the help of some assistants, Blake pulled the bow of her gorgeous rose gown to reveal a magnificent baby blue skirt underneath, and reversed her gloves to match.
Fans were blown away by Blake's look this year and took to Twitter to praise the fashion icon, who truly understood the assignment.
"I’m afraid she might be the best dressed #MetGala2022 #MetGala" tweeted one fan.
"Blake always understands the assignment and never disappoints. a SERVE," raved another.
"SHE ALWAYS GETS IT RIGHT" a third ecstatic Twitter user wrote.
A fourth fan quipped: "Her back must hurt from carrying this year’s Met Gala on her shoulders".
And a fifth gushed: "A whole gown that changes color and she looking gorgeous as hell in it".
Speaking about her look later on in the night, Blake revealed that her gown was inspired by New York City architecture.
"I arrived copper and then, like New York City classic architecture, I patina-ed" she explained. "This dress is an homage to New York City and so many of the classic iconic buildings."
All hail Queen Blake!
