At least, if Blake Lively and her latest look have anything to say about it. On Friday evening, the actress mastered the midriff reveal in an ultra-sexy LBD while stepping out solo for the Gem Awards at Cipriani in Manhattan. The ab-baring moment came courtesy of her dress's plunging neckline that stretched below her chest and was met with a tiny gold charm, before flowing into a massive cutout below. The bottom half of Lively's LBD featured a high-waisted pencil skirt silhouette, which was amplified by a pair of Christian Louboutin stilettos covered in tiny black and silver crystals. She carried a gold Chanel clutch with a black diamond weave pattern and accessorized with jeweled drop earrings and stacked rings on multiple fingers. Blake Lively Wore a Shacket With Nothing But a Bra Underneath Earlier this week, Lively's spellbinding fashion finally got the recognition it deserved, after she and her husband Ryan Reynolds were named co-chairs of this year's Met Gala. The annual event will celebrate the Costume Institute's exhibition on American fashion, titled In America: An Anthology of Fashion — a continuation of last year's In America: A Lexicon of Fashion. In addition to Blake and Ryan, Regina King and Lin-Manuel Miranda were also named official co-chairs of the evening.
