How to create a Versace dress for Blake Lively
The theme of the annual charity ball Met Gala was religion and its relationship with fashion. The party has traditionally begun the work of a new exhibition in the Metropolitan Museum, which this year is devoted to the relationship of fashion and the Catholic religion. On the red carpet, the events were decorated with religious decorations by Rihanna, Madonna, Gigi Hadid, Kim Kardashian, Gisele Bündchen, Uma Thurman, Emily Clark, Jennifer Lopez and many others. Actress Blake Lively has undoubtedly entered the best dressed rating this year. This year, Blake came without Ryan Reynolds’s husband, but with designer Christian Loubouten, who helped the star create a vivid image for this evening. Blake Lively is the old muse of Christian Labuten, the actress can often be seen on the red shoes in shoes from Christian Louboutin.
For the red carpet, Blake Lively chose a Versace raspberry dress with hand embroidery, a gemstone decoration and a sumptuous train. As accessories, the emerald earrings Lorraine Schwartz and the golden crown stylized under the halo came out. The shoe under the heavy hem was not visible, however, it is known that these were shoes on the heel Christian Louboutin. In honor of Blake Lively Christian Labuten even created a pair of shoes.
For the first time Blake Lively came to the fitting of the future attire in March 2018, already at that time more than 600 hours of manual labor took place to create a luxurious outfit, and it was not finished yet. “This will be my favorite dress of this year,” Blake said then. A complex work on the outfit also inspired the jewelry designer Lorraine Schwartz to create unique ornaments for the actress. “She saw embroidery with beads on her dress and invented her work on the basis of a brilliant decor,” Lively said.
About the participation of the actress in the creation of dresses for Met Gala, Christopher Bailey (the blond-pink dress of Burberry Blake put on in 2016) also told: “She takes an active part in the creation and design process, and this is very inspiring. We liked the idea of mixing complex manual technologies with high-tech fabrics. The result is really the only one of its kind – it’s a real treasure, like Blake! “
