Blake Lively has been one of the Met Gala’s most regular attendees over the years. Her first appearance in 2008, during the Gossip Girl craze, set the tone for her run on those storied steps. For the most part, Lively, who has famously braved Hollywood’s red carpet gauntlet without a stylist, embodies classic glamour on the Met Gala red carpet—which has its benefits, including an escort to the 2011 Met Gala in the form of none other than the late Karl Lagerfeld. Lively is no stranger to extravagance, either; her 2018 Met Gala dress, a jewel-encrusted Versace number with a dramatic train, took a reported 600 hours to make. From her debut in a feathered Ralph Lauren gown to her jaw-dropping Versace homage to the Empire State Building, look back at all of Blake Lively’s Met Gala fashion, here.
