Blake Lively stuns in plunging Marchesa dress for rare red carpet appearance with Ryan Reynolds
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are staking a serious claim to the title of Hollywood's Most Stylish Couple.
The Shallows star (29) and the Deadpool actor (40) have been married for five years and are famously private, making only a handful of red carpet appearances throughout the year, but made an exception as they stepped out in style to celebrate Reynolds being named among Time Magazine's 100 most influential people in the world.
To mark the occasion at a gala in New York on Tuesday night, the actor brought two of the main women in his life - Blake and his mother Tammy. Lively stunned in a custom Marchesa gown with floral appliqué and a plunging neckline with fringe detail, while the man of the hour opted for a Tom Ford suit.
Reynolds debuted on the list, which also included supermodel Ashley Graham, Oscar-winning singer John Legend, Australian actress Margot Robbie and Oscar winner Viola Davis, praised for his acting talents comparing him to Old Hollywood legend Cary Grant in a profile written by his Woman in Gold co-star Helen Mirren.
"He's the Everyman, but somehow with more of everything: wit, elegance, looks and general hunkiness," she wrote.
"Ryan is also rumpled, kind, committed and generous, especially to women. He likes them in the most simple, direct, unadorned way: for their humanity. (How very appropriate that he is the father of two girls.)
"He has a natural wit, which he often turns on himself, and he can balance his private and public life with great dexterity. He is open and generous, but never inappropriate. I suspect this is part of what makes him such an appealing performer."
In typical self-depricating form, the star responded to the accolade on Twitter: "I thank you from the heart of my bottom for the kindest words ever. They will be sung by a children's choir at my extravagant funeral."
Meanwhile, Blake recently spoke out about her love for her two daughters James (two) and Ines (six months) saying: "I would do anything to protect them. I would literally die for them without a moment's thought.
"I mean if you think of what you would do for your child, I don't think there's anything you wouldn't ask yourself."
