There she is, Mrs. Reynolds, everybody! For her first public appearance after marrying Ryan Reynolds this September, Blake Lively stepped out for the Chanel Bijoux De Diamant 80th anniversary party in NYC last night and stunned in a silver satin gown. Stunned. Married life obviously agrees with Blake because I dare say she's never looked better. I suppose it's difficult to look bad in Chanel couture, but when Blake wears it, the clouds part, the sun shines down, and angels can be heard singing. Ahhhh!
Blake's no stranger to Chanel -- even though she "dissed" the designer and wore a Marchesa gown on her wedding day, Blake's the face of Chanel's Mademoiselle handbag and seems to have a deep relationship with the design house. I mean, when Karl Largerfeld calls you his muse, I think that means you're in for life.
But Blake's not letting all this go to her head. It sounds like she's still blown away by everything that's happened to her. "Life is great! I was so excited to be driving over here in the car in this beautiful outfit. It's like a Disney princess dress!"
I don't remember any Disney characters in couture, but that's neither here nor there.
The best part about Blake's look is that it's metallic. I thought we were done with metallics, but if Blake is wearing Chanel metallic on the red carpet, then I guess not. Metallics are here for fall. Metallics, metallics, metallics. Have I said it enough yet?
Also, adding enviable to jealousness, her husband Ryan showed up later to the event and couldn't keep his eyes off his new bride. Sigh.
Do you like Blake's dress?
