Blake Lively walked the red carpet in New York on Monday night, making a rare appearance for the world premiere of her husband Ryan Reynolds’ latest film, “The Adam Project.”
The “Gossip Girl” star stunned in a multicolored striped Atelier Versace Couture dress. Featuring a plunging neckline, crystal-embroidered panels and a ruffled skirt, the fluid pastel number is actually from the brand’s Spring 2019 collection – showcasing Lively’s penchant for retro styles. The star completed her look with lots of mixed bangles from Lorraine Schwartz, pale agate disc earrings and – briefly – a wooden-handled pink tweed Chanel handbag.
When it comes to footwear, the ‘Savages’ actress also went vintage with a pair of now sold out Gucci sandals. Lively coordinated her dress in a pale blue Mallory style with slender back and toe straps, lined with gold crystals. Her shoes were complete with stiletto heels totaling at least 4 inches in height, though they weren’t fully visible under the flowing skirt of her dress.
Glitter sandals like the ones from Lively are a high-end style in today’s high-heel renaissance, bringing glamor and drama through shimmering embellishments and textures. Most styles feature crystal accents, sequins, or sequins, as seen in new styles from Kurt Geiger, Schutz, and Manolo Blahnik. In addition to Lively, glittery Amina Muaddi, Mach & Mach and Tom Ford sandals have also been worn by Rihanna, Elsa Hosk and Chrissy Teigen in recent weeks.
When it comes to fashion, Lively has a penchant for glamour. The actress is known for wearing ensembles detailed with intricate sequins, embroidery, and embellishments from high-end brands like Ralph Lauren, Versace, and Brandon Maxwell, among many others. On the front of the shoe, these are often accompanied by pointed toe pumps, elegant boots and strappy sandals; Besides Louboutin, Lively has also been spotted in the styles of Alaïa, Tory Burch and Valentino. When not on duty, she prefers Nike, Allbirds and Vans sneakers.
The ‘A Simple Favor’ actress is a fixture on the fashion scene, due to her glamorous style and close friendships with designers like Louboutin and the late Karl Lagerfeld. Lively was previously the face of L’Oréal and Gucci’s Gucci Premiere perfume, as well as Chanel’s Mademoiselle handbag line, in the early 2010s.
