When you're a celebrity, like Blake Lively, getting event ready is easy with the help of a stylist and a wardrobe of designer gowns at your disposal. So, when Blake made her return to the red carpet last week after a near year-long hiatus, she did so looking more radiant than we remembered in not one, but two Chanel gowns. We basked in her glamour when she appeared with her husband on the Deadpool red carpet and when she arrived at the amfAR gala in NYC, eyeing her dresses with our jaws agape.
That's the beauty of the red carpet, it pulls you in with envy and awe. The truth is that that kind of glamour isn't a reality, not even for the celebs who live it from night to night. As Blake Lively revealed in an Instagram snap those beautiful Chanel dresses eventually went back to the design house, loaned out for just the couple of occasions. At the end of the day, the looks you see at award shows and events get sent back — though in our minds, they'll always belong to the stars who first wore them. Read on to see Blake looking stunning in both designs and, later, her sad 'gram as she parts with the pieces.
