We were unabashedly obsessed with Blake Lively’s 2018 Met Gala look…which is why we can’t believe me missed this secret message to husband Ryan Reynolds. And once you spot it, it’s actually totally obvious. Lively wore a stunning crimson Versace gown to the event that reportedly took 600 hours to make, and she carried a custom-made matching Judith Leiber clutch. And it turns out the purse’s intricate beading contained a hidden note.
The accessory included a “B” for Blake, an “R” for Ryan, a “J” for daughter James, and an “I” for daughter Ines. And in case that wasn’t obvious enough, it also included the word “Reynolds. So cute.
Here’s a better look at the very special clutch.
It’s gorgeous, and the perfect memento from a special night.
Here was Blake’s ensemble in full.
When she’s not wowing us with red carpet genius, Blake has been busy promoting her upcoming movie What Happened to Emily? on Instagram. After posting several cryptic hangman clues, the actress deleted all of her Insta pics and unfollowed every single person she knew…but refollowed women named Emily Nelson.
Her Instagram returned on May 2nd, and included the trailer for the film.
Lively has emerged as the queen of cryptic, and we’re all about it (but never delete all your pics ever again please and thanks).
