Blake Lively made her first red carpet appearance since giving birth to her fourth child with Ryan Reynolds in February, and she looked absolutely stunning. The 35-year-old actress attended Barnard College’s Annual Gala in New York wearing an off-the-shoulder floral midi dress from Carolina Herrera layered beneath a sheer pink-and-orange trench coat with a neon yellow lining. She paired the outfit with pink crystal-buckled Manolo Blahnik Hangisi pumps worth $1,225, an all-over bedazzled Chanel flap bag, and Brent Neale drop earrings dripping with rainbow-hued gems.
Hairstylist Jennifer Yepez did Lively’s hair in a softly curled half-up style for the evening, while Carolina Gonzalez did her makeup. They both posted about Lively on their Instagram pages, with Yepez calling her a “real-life Barbie” and Gonzalez describing Lively’s rosy beauty look as “Breathtakingly Beautiful.”
Lively presented an award during the ceremony and made a joke about how she returned to college after landing “zero acting jobs” early in her Hollywood career. She said that after two weeks, she received a call from the producers of ‘Gossip Girl’ asking her to be part of the show and promising that she could go to Columbia University one day a week as long as it didn’t interfere with their seven-day-a-week shooting schedule.
Lively and Reynolds share daughters James, 8, Inez, 6, and Betty, 3, in addition to their new arrival, whose name and sex have not been revealed. Lively has been showing off her fit post-baby body on social media earlier this month, and she is known for her high-fashion maternity looks. Last September, she even revealed she was expecting her fourth baby on the red carpet while wearing a glittering gold Valentino mini that highlighted her bump.
In conclusion, Blake Lively stunned everyone in her beautiful ensemble during her first red carpet appearance since giving birth to her fourth child. Her outfit and accessories were striking and colorful, and her hair and makeup were flawless. She continues to inspire others with her style and confidence on and off the red carpet.
