Blake Lively’s

impeccable style

 

never ceases to amaze me…

Last night at the Met Gala was no exception. Lively looked stunning in her strapless Gucci custom gown; its train made of black feathers. Every detail from her “tri-pod” ponytail to her immaculate manicure was perfect; So it was no surprise when Lively’s Met Gala “look” was named “Look of The Day,” today by InStyle Magazine.

One Thing Is True,

Blake Lively possesses true iconic style

that will not soon be

forgotten.
