Blake Lively’s Met Gala Looks From 2008 to 2018

Posted by Catherine Kallon

Blake Lively and husband Ryan Reynolds, who are currently expecting their third child together, are on the committee for this year’s 2019 Met Gala, taking place tomorrow, Monday May 6, so it’s the perfect time to look back over Blake’s Met Gala looks.

2008: ‘Superheroes’

For her first Met Gala, Blake played it fairly safe wearing a Ralph Lauren gown  which basically ignored the theme.

2009: ‘The Model as Muse’

Dressed in Versace, it was safe to say that Blake was channelling her inner Gisele Bündchen.

2010, ‘American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity’

Teal blue worked well for her in 2009, so Blake repeated the colour in 2010 wearing Marchesa.

2011: ‘Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty’

Showcasing a new strawberry blonde ‘do,  Blake rocked a silver Chanel Fall 2009 Haute Couture Grecian-inspired dress.

2013: ‘PUNK: Couture to Chaos’

Gucci Première, oh how I miss thee.  Let me count the ways.  This strapless gown touched on the theme, while still bringing that Blake sex appeal to the red carpet.

2014: ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’

Blake was at her most glamorous best, doing the old-school Hollywood thing perfectly in Gucci Première. 

2016: ‘Manus x Machina: Fashion In The Age Of Technology’

While everyone else rocked up to the Met Gala in 2016 wearing robot-like metallic dresses, Blake just did her thing in a floral number by Burberry. She was pregnant at the time, so I guess the

2017: Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art Of The In-Between’

I remember that  you all disliked Blake in this Atelier Versace gown.  Between those blue feathers creating the most dramatic in the train and the gold fringe work, what’s not to love?

2018: Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination

I’m sure you noticed that Blake took things up several notches last year in this Atelier Versace design, which is still my most liked picture on Instagram. 

I’m confident being the co-chair, that Blake will knock us off our feet for this year’s theme which is ‘Camp: Notes On Fashion.’

I’m not even going to guess who she wears, I’m just gonna make sure I’m sitting down when she makes her entrance.

    2014 stays my favourite forever.

    I am honestly NOT impressed by any of her looks except the 2014. She is too banal for my fashion taste I guess. I want Rihanna or anyone bringing some much needed drama and ON THEME PLEASE! Blake only shines her best in Cannes. Otherwise, she is as intersting as a dishwasher ?

    I don’t understand this year theme. Someone can explain ?

    I don’t dislike any of this looks, but they’re all pretty safe and dull, except for the last one.

    I keep thinking 2008 was like 2 or 3 years ago not 11 years!

    I voted for 2013. That was truly a wonderful look. Most of these however are not. I especially hated last years Versace…it’s so ugly and looks so cheap to me.
    I don’t mind 2017 though…I never understood the hate for that.

    Ahhh, Gucci. *breathes it in*

    I loved Frida Giannini heading up Gucci, and while Alessandro Michele has his moments I never fully warmed up to him when the slew of articles came out about him having ‘saved’ Gucci and made it relevant again.

    The below collection will always be my favourite from Frida.

    I keep getting logged out after every minute here. whats going on? this suxxx.

    She has definitely gotten fashion better with age.

    The 2011 and 2014 are my favourites here, not just from her but favourites from the Gala in the past decade. Apart from these the 2013 is nice rest are no good.

    When last year rumours were circulating that Anna might leave Condé Nast so 2018 might be the last Met Gala, a part of me hoped that happened, because I hate seeing trashy models and rebellious music artists try and hog limelight at an event which was once meant for fashion royalty and American aristocracy. It’s turned into a marketing circus for both guests and the designers. Anna should be more selective of the guests and designers who are invited to buy tickets/tables and try and restore the class the event had in the Diana Vreeland days. Does anyone else agree ?

    • Guest May 6, 2019 at 2:47 am #

      ‘American aristocracy ‘? It’s not the 1950s, most people don’t care about random rich people just because they come from ‘old money’. That all seems so out of sync with now and rather deferential.

    • Guest May 6, 2019 at 7:09 am #

      I actually agree, it’s really become a marketing circus nowadays.

    • Guest May 6, 2019 at 8:12 am #

      You are right, my categorisation fell rather short. I didn’t just mean rich people, I meant people who value art, fashion and history and hold the Costume Institute and it’s archives in high regard. In the past the guestlist (or their +1) have included performance artists, theatre and Broadway talents and other innovators. Just saying that it could use a few less attention seekers who don’t see fashion/art the way you and I do. We could do without those who smoke cigarettes and weed in the bathroom there to post it online. Or the event will loose it’s true value in the coming years.

    • Guest May 6, 2019 at 8:54 am #

      Yes, a certain cache to be invited and decorum should be expected. I hope some there’s a wider mix of guests and I think there are some more high brow guests with people not just from pop culture but as things are with today’s society, they don’t (perhaps sadly) really get the press or attention. Anna, whatever you may think of her career has known/ believed that you’ve got get the people that the masses are going to be talking about.

    • Guest May 6, 2019 at 9:15 am #

      I think very highly of Anna’s career. I agree with you. Let’s just hope there are more magnificent moments to behold this time and less trashy ones.

    Blake’s style is completely overrated. I voted for 2014. She looked amazing that year and the dress was lovely. I’ll be all alone but I intensely dislike the 2018 dress because of the sheer panels even though Blake looked stunning. I do credit Blake with working her height, blonde hair and privilege/connections to her advantage .

  12. Guest May 5, 2019 at 11:14 pm #

    I like the 2011, 2014 and 2018 outfits.

    3 out of 9 is not a lot but I’m not the biggest Blake fan tbh.
    She usually does well with her maternity style though so this year might be good.

  13. Guest May 5, 2019 at 8:52 pm #

    I love this post. I love seeing a celebrity’s style transformation. Can’t wait to see what Blake wears tommorow.

  14. Guest May 5, 2019 at 8:44 pm #

    Never been a fan but there are some good looks here.

    I still think her style is overrated.

  15. Guest May 5, 2019 at 8:22 pm #

    I’ll sure be in the minority but I find her overrated style wise. This adoration towards her fashion choices is beyond me. She always tends to over accessorize which is a big no for me. Less is more.
