In the world of high fashion, it may come as a surprise to you that rapper R. Kelly‘s infamous words ring as true as ever. You know the line we’re referring to: “After the party, there’s the after party?” Well during Fashion Week, there’s always a party after the party. Last night’s took place in Casa degli Atellan, where guests attended the “Beauty in Wonderland” event, hosted by Franca Sozzani, editor of Vogue Italia, and Joanne Crewes, president of P&G Prestige. After making her front row appearances on the Milan catwalk circuit, Blake Lively attended the evening gala in a shimmering Gucci halter jumpsuit with a high-neckline and sporty silhouette. Leave it to Lively to snag this Spring 2014 design mere days after it premiered on the runway. We’re guessing being a loyal ambassador of the brand (she just wore one of their pieces on the cover of China’s Elle magazine) and the face of Gucci Première helped.
This is the stunning actress’s second style hit during Milan Fashion Week, making an initial public showing in a yellow leather twist-neck sheath to Gucci’s Wednesday show, where she sat alongside Anna Wintour. After some time away from the red carpet, during which she enjoyed her new married life with husband Ryan Reynolds, we’re glad to have Lively back in action. Score her look by picking up a jumpsuit in a similar body-lengthening silhouette this season. Add a blazer and pumps for fall, and re-wear it again this spring without the layers–this is a piece that can be styled throughout the year.
