Blake Lively continues to slay the fashion game. On March 18, the actress stepped out to the 2022 Gem Awards in NYC to help celebrate honoree Lorraine Schwartz, and while the mom-of-three donned plenty of sparkly jewelry for the occasion, it was her black dress that had everyone talking.

She never misses! The Gossip Girl alum strutted her stuff in a black cutout dress by her go-to designer of the moment, Sergio Hudson. She also wore a pair of glittery Christian Louboutin heels and carried a brown and black clutch.
For the final touch, she slipped on several rings and put on a pair of dangling earrings.
Lively's style is one of the reasons she was named as a cohost for this year's Met Gala, which takes place on May 2. She holds the honor alongside husband Ryan Reynolds, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Regina King. This year's theme is In America: An Anthology of Fashion, which acts as the second part to last year's In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.
Andrew Bolton, the head curator of the Museum of Modern Art’s Costume Institute, previously explained what visitors can expect when they come to the MoMA exhibit.
"The stories really reflect the evolution of American style, but they also explore the work of individual tailors, dress-makers, and designers," he shared. "What’s exciting for me is that some of the names will be very familiar to students of fashion, like Charles James, Halston, and Oscar de la Renta, but a lot of the other names really have been forgotten, overlooked or relegated into the footnotes of fashion history. So one of the main intentions of the exhibition is to spotlight the talents and contributions of these individuals, and many of them are women."
While the event is invite-only, you'll be able to once again watch red carpet coverage on Vogue's livestream or on TV.
Because of the pandemic, the 2020 party was canceled, and last year's event was delayed until September. The latter was hosted by Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Amanda Gorman, and Naomi Osaka.
