Blake Lively wore a stunning two tone gown that paid homage to New York City architecture.
Lively arrived wearing a rose-gold Versace gown with a beaded bodice that was inspired by art-deco architecture. An aspect of the Gilded Age, which lasted from 1870 until 1900, was heavy industrialization and a new focus on landmark buildings that weren’t just functional, they were impressive too.
Lively’s fashion team then untied the large bow on the side of her dress, revealing a turquoise underlayer that paid homage to the Statue of Liberty. The actress also told E! News that the colors of her gown were meant to mimic the landmark’s oxidation after it changed from copper to green.
