Blake Lively is known for her unwavering loyalty to the designers she loves, as was evident at the 2013 Met Gala where she cemented her love for Gucci. Lively’s outfit for the event was a strapless fit-and-flare gown, a silhouette with a full feather-and-organza skirt, but the tattered, layered, and intricately deconstructed design gave it a punk edge and added an overall rock and roll feel of the look. Despite being known for her polished and preppy style, Lively proved that she was willing to take a fashion risk and push the boundaries of her personal style.
