Blake Lively Wore an LBD with a Subtly Sexy Keyhole Cutout

Little black party dress.

Last night, Blake Lively took to the streets of New York City to support her BFF Taylor Swift at Saturday Night Live's afterparty wearing a chic alternative to the plunging-neckline dress. At first glance, Lively's LBD might have appeared conventional, but the keyhole-style frock was sexy in a subtle way with a strategic flash of skin.

The ribbed sweater dress featured a high neck with a cutout below stretching across the top of her chest. Lively layered on a gold necklace and added a pop of color to her monochromatic look with a pair of emerald drop earrings and a sapphire heart-shaped ring. Further dressing up her otherwise minimalistic outfit, Blake accessorized with a sparkly shoulder bag and platform heels with deep purple accents on each toe, which coordinated with her husband Ryan Reynolds's suit jacket.

A black face mask and glossy waves provided the finishing touches to her look.

During last night's episode of SNL, Swift performed the 10-minute version of "All Too Well" from her rerecorded album Red (Taylor's Version). And the next morning, she teased the release of a new music video from the same album, crediting Lively as the director. "SURPRISE! NEW MUSIC VIDEO TOMORROW at 10am ET," Swift captioned a short clip, featuring a three-tiered cake with two claw marks running across the white icing. Seconds later, a hand wearing a ruby and diamond ring (similar to Lively's) grabs a chunk from the center. "I finally got to work with the brilliant, brave, & wickedly funny @blakelively on her directorial debut. Join us as we raise a toast, and a little hell."
