Blake Lively was one of the first stars to hit the red carpet at the 2022 Met Gala on Monday night.

On fashion's biggest night, the actress, who is a co-chair for the star-studded gala with her husband, Ryan Reynolds, wore a custom gown from Versace.

Lively, who is never one to shy away from making a style statement at the annual event, stopped to take photographs in the red-toned gown, which featured a large bow, before walking further on the carpet and completely transforming her look.
