Wow, what a year it has been for Blake Lively: a hit show and her first-ever appearance at the Costume Institute Gala. And you know what? Just like her character Serena, she looks playfully pretty. And she looks refreshingly her age. So often young actresses try to look more sophisticated or sexy, here Blake just owns her age. Love. It. Blake's hair is casually down, but it still looks appropriate for the event. Her makeup also looked clean and fresh. Loving the smile, loving the look. You xoxo-ing?
