Blake Lively took a trip down memory lane on May 4, 2020 - what would have been the 2020 Met Gala. To celebrate the first Monday in May, Blake posted a series of throwback pictures of her gorgeous gowns on the red carpet with the caption, " . . . when the carpet matches the Blakes. Met Ball 2018, 2017, 2016." It seems like the Gossip Girl star realized that she somehow ended up coordinating with the carpet of the iconic steps each year without meaning to! Even Gigi Hadid joked that Blake and Vogue Editor in Chief Anna Wintour were in cahoots to make this coordination happen commenting, "How far in advance do you have to tell Anna what color to make the carpet?" Let's take a look at the evidence, shall we?
For the 2016 "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology" theme, Blake wore a pink silk floor-sweeping Burberry number, complete with red bouquets that embellished her cape. The carpet that year happened to be in the same pink and red color. In 2017, Blake channeled her inner Serena van der Woodsen in a dazzling gold Versace number with light and dark blue feather trim. If you look at the carpet that year, the colors were - you guessed it - blue and gold. Finally, in 2018, Blake looked like an absolute queen for the "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination" theme in a Versace gown that featured an intricately beaded bodice. Read on to see all of the color-coordinated looks.
