Happy Birthday Blake Lively ! The actress, model, mother and L'Oréal Paris ambassador turned 28 years old today, bringing an end to an incredible year which saw the addition of a new little family member - the birth of her daughter, James, with husband Ryan Reynolds - and the release of her latest film The Age of Adaline.
In celebration of her big day, here are our top 5 red carpet appearances from the beautiful Blake...
Glittering at TIFF
With the Toronto International Film Festival 2015 fast approaching, we had to give a shout out to Blake's red hot appearance on the 2010 TIFF red carpet. In a deep wine-colored body con dress, embellished with sequins and petal detailing, Blake gave her lips a fire engine red shade to match, and set hearts pounding with her signature tousled locks.
After party glamour
Nothing speaks glamour like an A-list after party, and Blake surely knows how to dress for the occasion! We loved her tailored sophisticated-but-sexy ensemble from the April 19, 2015, which she donned after the The Age of Adaline premiere in New York City, pulling her hair into a high-volume ponytail and matching her outfit with an evening smoky eye look.
The dress to top all dresses, Blake Lively's gown from the New York premiere of The Age of Adaline had everything: a skirt and train of feathers, leather sections on the bodice with lace detailing, and that unbeatable shade to match the red carpet itself! She ticked all of our beauty boxes for the evening!
Blake loves to channel that classic Hollywood siren look on the red carpet, 'Charles James: Beyond Fashion' Costume Institute Gala in May 2014 was definitely a prime example! Her light rose pink gown - with its figure-hugging bodice, lines of dazzling sequins and plunging cleavage - looked like it was tailor-made for her; perfectly complementing her English rose complexion and her cascade of vintage curls. We think we are in love!
The only way is Cannes
With their matching black and white ensembles at the Cannes Captives premiere on May 16, 2014, could there be a cuter Hollywood couple than Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds? Both have the looks, the talent and the growing happy family to make anyone green with envy, especially in looking back at their hand-in-hand red carpet appearance from Cannes 2014, where Blake wore a strapless two-tone gown with a sculpted bodice and a voluminous train.
Fingers crossed for a Blake red carpet appearance at TIFF in a couple of weeks!
