Blake Lively may have just set the bar for maternity style—even for herself! The 27-year-old star stepped out in a breathtaking black backless Kaufmanfranco gown to attend L'Oréal's ninth annual Women of Worth Awards on Tuesday. Stars such as Eva Longoria, Julianne Moore, and Andie MacDowell joined Lively at the Pierre Hotel in New York City for the event to honor women who've helped address social issues such as drug addiction and sex trafficking.
Lively reportedly purchased the Kaufmanfranco stunner herself and contrasted the black dress—which featured slim straps across the back and across the shoulder—with sparkling silver jewelry. She decorated one wrist with a selection of bangles and opted for dangly chandelier earrings. At the awards, Lively spoke about a woman who gives her inspiration: her own mom. "She had her own career, she raised five kids—she was superwoman, and she was never satisfied doing one thing, probably because she had too much energy," Lively says. It sounds like the actress, Preserve founder, and mom-to-be learned from the best!
