If there's anyone you can count on to deliver a groundbreaking ensemble at the Met Gala while staying on theme, it's Blake Lively. The Gossip Girl star has cemented herself as queen of the Met Gala red carpet thanks to her awe-inspiring looks over the years. Perhaps your mind goes to the pink Burberry gown with red floral embroidery she wore to 2016's "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology," which could pass for this year's Garden theme. Then there was that stunning rose Atelier Versace gown that famously oxidized into a light blue skirt for the 2022 "In America: An Anthology of Fashion" Met Gala where she was co-chair.

And how could we forget her interpretation of 2018's catholic theme? Once again partnering with the famed Italian house, Lively wore a red Versace gown (and crown) with an intricately beaded bodice that took over 600 hours to make. Another of her major Met Gala moments came courtesy of the champagne Gucci dress she wore back in 2014. The Old-Hollywood look featured a dazzling beaded gown and dramatic cape that graciously kissed the floor, while her signature long blonde tresses were styled in gorgeous vintage curls.

Lively never misses the mark, so here's to hoping that she shows up at this Monday's red carpet. Keep scrolling for some of the star's greatest style moments in Met Gala history.
