Blake Lively’s Versace gown took over 600 hours to make, so you better believe it was one of the most regal looks at the Met Gala (opens in new tab). For her ninth time at the annual event, Blake wore an intricate woven dress, which required a party bus (opens in new tab) for getting her to the red carpet. The designer number featured a beaded bodice and Blake's heavy train trailed behind her as she walked the red carpet. To give the outfit an even more royal flair, Blake accessorized with a spiked crown and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

The actress also carried a custom Judith Leiber clutch, which had a special message. The beaded accessory featured a bejeweled cross (opens in new tab) with Blake's initial as well the first letter of the names of her husband and their two children, James and Ines. Underneath the letters 'B', 'R', 'J,' and 'I' was the family's last name Reynolds. This special shout out made Blake's outfit all the more memorable.
