Blake Lively has always been on our stylish celebrity radar but she’s definitely stepped it up a gear in recent weeks.
Her glittering gold Gucci gown at the Met Gala attracted rave reviews (if you missed it, have a look here) and last night, she donned a burgundy Gucci gown for the first day of this year’s Cannes festival.
A thigh split can look tacky but the high neck and folds of fabric detract attention from the leg on display and Ms Lively looks elegant yet modern.
The former Gossip Girl star is at the 67th Cannes film festival carrying out official duties in her role as ambassador for L’Oréal Paris.
Blake’s high ponytail, cuffed sandals and statement bling might sound a little over the top but there’s no denying that this style icon can pull any look off.
