Blake Lively looked as beautiful as ever on the red carpet at the 2011 National Board of Review of Motion Pictures Gala in New York City last night.

I love her plum Marchesa Spring 2011 dress.

The suedette laser cut sculpted sleeve cocktail dress with low cut back doesn’t have as much details as the runway version.

Her version feels muted in comparison, but it’s event appropriate. The runway version would work better at a Premiere.

I loved her aqua jewels, but I’m not a fan of the Burberry heels.

I’m not a season snob, but these Fall 2008 heels look really dated. They take a lot away from her overall look.

I can only appreciate this look from the ankle up.
