Step 1: Freak out over Blake Lively’s insanely glamorous Met Gala gown. Step 2: Take a breather and bask in the gorgeousness that is her regal beauty, and see if you can handle it better than the photographers at the Met Gala could. Step 3: Go on with your day and try to accept that even though Blake Lively didn’t bring hubby Ryan Reynolds as her date, she made up for it with every single detail of her outfit being on-theme.
OK, now, take a step back and prepare to have your mind blown, because it turns out that the Met Gala veteran actually did bring Ryan with her, and not only him, she brought the whole family right in the palm of her hand! For the “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” theme, Blake carried a custom Judith Leiber handbag emblazoned with a “Reynolds” family crest matching perfectly to her Versace gown.
If you look a little closer you can see the initials B, R, J, and I, for Ryan and their daughters James, 3, and Ines, 1. Yep, it doesn’t get any sweeter than that, and we can’t believe the subtle family tribute almost slipped right past us. Read on for a closer look at the heartwarming bag.
