Lively arrived at Met Gala in a magnificent rose gold gown with a pink-orange bustle at the sides, complete with shoulder-length gloves and a tiara. Each and every component of her outfit perfectly matched the theme. Needless to say, the couple looked nothing less than royalty.

What’s truly breathtaking about this wonderful transformation is the fact that despite minimal alterations, the second look was entirely different from the first.

The turquoise skirt train represents the constellation from Grand Central station. The metallic gown and the draping represent the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty respectively.
