Blake Lively In Atelier Versace – 2017 Met Gala

Blake Lively was another of the evening’s guests at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) in New York City.

King Midas would find nothing to fault about her gilded Atelier Versace gown, which erupted at the bottom in a sea of feathery blue plumes.

It’s not the first time she’s worn feathers at the Met Gala, as in 2013, she also brought in some serious plumage.

But, aside from that, I feel like we’ve seen incarnations of this look before. Beyonce and Kim Kardashian are just two who come to mind who’ve worn bird-inspired gowns in the past.

Perhaps I’m having some feather fatigue, even though I wanted to love this body-contouring, liquid gold moment on Blake. Did it maintain its lustrous shine for you?

    As a true Blake style fan, this was so disappointing. She’s been in a rut which makes me sad.

    I think this is the perfect illustration of how those desperate looks by Kim Kardashian or Beyonce in previous years may have ruined our perception of certain dresses forever. I think it is really sad, because if one tries to abstract herself from those references, and just looks at the dress, I think it becomes so much better.

    The more I try to see it as a Versace + Blake moment, without other references, the more I love it. She looks like a golden Venus coming out of the water. Dated? Maybe. Tacky? Mmmm not so much for me but maybe. Still, incredibly gorgeous and well constructed. I love it.

    I want to hate this look so much – it’s dated and we have seen dresses like this many times, but… the more I look at it, the more I like it. I admire their courage to combine gold and blue.

    i LOVE this!!! one of my best dressed for sure!!

    I love Blake but her looks can be so lazy sometimes. This has been done to death. The feathers look like a part of another dress. And does she ever read the theme ? The met Ball is the occasion to get bold and creative but she always plays it safe. She looks okay but okay is not enough for the gala.

    She looks beautiful but wish they had stopped before adding the blue feathers – done to death.

    my minds are battling between liking or loathing this look.
    sure ,the dress is a bacis mermaid dress with feathers on the hem,nothing we haven’t seen before,however,the gold and blue looked divine on blake.

    How do yall hate this??? One of my best dressed of the night. To me it’s Donatella and Blake at their very best.

      I agree.

  10. Christine May 2, 2017 at 11:54 #

    So dated. Smh

  11. Chris May 2, 2017 at 11:48 #

    I think it’s stunning, I love the blue at the bottom.

  12. Thit May 2, 2017 at 11:25 #

    If all the feathers had been gold, I would’ve been totally sold on this.

  13. Keeks May 2, 2017 at 10:20 #

    I’m controversial but I’m loving this dress. Yes the feather thing has been done but I love this version of it! I think the colours have sold it to me!

    So incredibly dated. She, years after Kim K, Beyoncé, decided to look at Cher in her ICONIC Bob Mackie dress.

    It must have cost a fortune to make yet it looks like something I’d find in a mall.

    She’s got the most envious-inducing body there is (and a safe yet flattering style) and this is what she decides to wear??

    Blake has been serving some mildy dated looks here and there lately, but this is… This is Dynasty level.

    • Charlotte May 2, 2017 at 08:33 #

      I agree.
      Plus I find this whole look quite tacky.

  16. Pheephee May 2, 2017 at 06:21 #

    Oddly this does seem dated. Its like Ive seen this dress a dozen other times….surprisingly Im going to have to pass on it. Its just not doing it for me.
    I love those blue rocks on her earrings though.

  17. Mickey May 2, 2017 at 06:11 #

    I like the look. The dress goes well with her skin tone, the feathers carpet. But that hair needs some moisture

  18. Carolina May 2, 2017 at 06:11 #

    I find this absolutely gorgeous!

  19. Nat39 May 2, 2017 at 06:06 #

    Yep, Beyonce-Kardashian-esque. I’ll pass.

  20. Alex May 2, 2017 at 05:54 #

    Stunning, but not a new design. She looks flawless. As we expect!

  21. Alina May 2, 2017 at 05:53 #

    IMHO, this gown looks dated and cheap (which I know it isn’t).

  22. JHH May 2, 2017 at 05:52 #

    This is a very ugly dress.
