Blake Lively wears 200 carats of jewellery to the Met Gala

By Bang

Blake Lively wore almost 200 carats of jewellery to this year's Met Gala, which racked up to almost $3.5 million.

The 29-year-old actress turned heads at the star-studded bash in New York on Monday as she adorned a gold, embellished Versace gown with a blue feathered train, which she paired with 130 carats of Lorraine Schwartz sapphire accessories, including an 82 carat pair of Burma earrings and a 50-carat triple sapphire ring, all of which are believed to be worth over $3.5 million, as well as a 50-carat diamond ring.

The American jeweller shared the details of the former 'Gossip Girls' attire on her Instagram account.

Alongside a picture of the golden-haired beauty and her 40-year-old husband at the red carpet bash, it read: "I mean how perfect can you get ?!!! Super hot couple #blakelively and #ryanreynolds at the 2017 #metball in #versace

My girl blake rockin 130 carats #lorraineschwarz and #ofirajewelz #sapphires and 48 carat #lorraineschwartzjewelry #diamondrings wow#family #lovethem (sic)."

Although Blake - who has daughters James, two, and seven-month-old Ines - wore a floor length dress with a train, she has previously admitted she always questions herself why she chooses to wear ensembles with the extended piece when she struggles walking up stairs.

Speaking previously, she said: "I love a train but then when I get on these stairs, I'm like, 'Why am I wearing a train?'"

Meanwhile, Blake has been credited as having "amazing hair and style" by fashion designer Michael Kors.

Speaking previously, the creative mastermind said: "Blake and I have been friends for a long time and she always makes me laugh.

"Her sense of humour and sunny disposition are infectious. I think the video will make people everywhere smile.

"She brings charm and optimism, not to mention amazing hair and style, to everything she does."
