Watching stunning couple Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds float down the red carpet on May 5 was like seeing a mythical unicorn in person. You’ve heard stories of such beauty, but didn’t really believe it could exist.
Lively, in a curve-hugging, nude Gucci Premiere dress, and Reynolds, outfitted in a deep blue velvet Gucci tux, were — arguably the hottest couple — on the 2014 Met Gala red carpet in New York City. And that’s saying a lot, considering that some of the other A-list couples attending this year’s event at the Metropolitan Museum of Art included Johnny Depp and Amber Heard; Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield; David and Victoria Beckham; Charlize Theron and Sean Penn; and Beyonce and Jay Z.
Even though Lively, 26, and Reynolds, 37, have been married since September 2012, they’ve rarely been spotted together at big events like this. Definitely too bad as the affectionate couple sure knows how to rock the red carpet. At Monday night’s event, Lively’s hair was styled in glamorous waves, which perfectly complemented her custom made gown. As for Reynolds — the former People Sexiest Man Alive — played it ruggedly handsome by sporting a little bit of scruff on his face.
Lively’s dress featured a beautiful train, which she joked about with PeopleStyleWatch, saying, “I love a train, but then when I get on these stairs, I’m like, ‘Why am I wearing a train?'”
The private couple, who met on the set of 2011’s “Green Lantern,” live in Bedord, New York. Ever since “Gossip Girl’s” finale in December 2012, Lively has been busy working on her home and also on creating a lifestyle brand similar to Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop. And in March, the actress began filming a romantic drama, “The Age of Adaline.” Reynolds has been busy working, as well, and has several films due out soon, including “Selfless,” which will also star Ben Kingsley.
Although the couple don’t have any children yet, Reynolds told Details magazine that he’d “love to have a big family,” because both he and Lively came from big families.
