Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are the type of married couple that (understandably) induces immediate envy: beautiful, smiling, and always looking in love, especially during their somewhat-rare red-carpet appearances together. Although last year Lively attended the Met Gala alone, this time around she and Reynolds arrived together—and were pretty much the cutest duo of the night. (And there was definitely competition: See Tom and Gisele, Chrissy and John, Selena and the Weeknd—you get our drift.)
Lively looked like an absolute dream, not only staying true to her own glamorous fashion aesthetic but also sticking to the avant-garde Comme des Garçons–inspired theme. Her gown was body conscious, almost nude in hue, with just a hint of glittering gold. But then there was the epic train—a bright-blue peacock-feathered one—which had us dreaming of fresh new ways to incorporate “something blue” into a wedding gown or, as Reynolds showed, into his wardrobe. His powder-blue bow tie and clean-lined tux perfectly complemented her glamorous dress, gold earrings, and easy-breezy ponytail.
This isn’t the couple's first appearance at the Met Gala, though: The two were photographed on the red carpet together back in 2014. If their consistent smiles are any indication from year to year, it’s clear that Lively and Reynolds may just be the cutest couple ever.
