As a co-chair of the highly anticipated 2022 Met Gala, we were fully expecting Blake Lively to smash it in the style stakes – but she has truly exceeded expectations this year, arriving on the red carpet in Atelier Versace.

The actor is co-chairing this year's 'In America: An Anthology of Fashion'-themed gala alongside husband Ryan Reynolds, Regina King and Lin-Manuel Miranda. The museum has also partnered with pioneering directors for this year's proceedings including Regina King, Sofia Coppola, Martin Scorsese and 2021 Oscar winner Chloé Zhao to create 'cinematic vignettes' for the exhibition.

Lively's dramatic fashion looks have been a highlight of the Met Gala red carpet over the years, and have just got better and better since she started attending in 2008.

For the 2018 Gala, themed 'Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination', the Gossip Girl star walked the steps of the Met in a crimson Versace gown complete with embroidered bodice, bejewelled straps, and an extra-long train, all of which took 600 hours to make by hand. She paired the gown with a sweet tribute to her family: a custom-made Judith Leiber rhinestone clutch embellished with the initials 'B', 'R', 'J' and 'I' as well as their family surname 'Reynolds'.

One of the best-loved A-list couples of recent years, Lively and Reynolds last attended a Met Gala together back in 2017. The duo missed the smaller-scale 2021 Met Gala, themed 'In America: A Lexicon of Fashion', preferring instead to enjoy the proceedings from the comfort of home as Lively shared some of her favourite past Met Gala looks via Instagram stories.
