All eyes were on Blake Lively as she sat in the front row at the Gucci fashion show Wednesday during Milan Fashion Week. The 26-year-old beauty wore a form-fitting mustard leather dress, setting off the look with red lips, rust-colored heels and a bedazzled gold clutch.
Before the show began, Lively showed her relevance in the fashion world, speaking with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. The beauty, who is the latest face of Gucci's Premiere fragrance, also showed off her sparkling wedding ring. She is married to fellow actor Ryan Reynolds, who was not in attendance. The easy-on-the-eyes couple celebrated their first wedding anniversary last week.
They married in a surprise wedding, shocking Lively's ex-boyfriend and "Gossip Girls" co-star, Penn Badgley.
"I actually didn't know until last night, but I think it's fantastic. I couldn't be happier for her," Badgley told People magazine after the big news. Badgley went on to date Zoe Kravitz, daughter of rocker Lenny Kravitz, but they recently split. He and Lively, 25, dated after working together on "Gossip Girls" and broke up in 2010.
"I'm so happy for her," Badgley went on to say. He, like the rest of the world, learned about the wedding by reading reports and speaking to "people who are close to her," People reports.
Reynolds, 35, was previously married to actress Scarlett Johansson. They divorced in 2010. This is Lively's first marriage. After she broke up with Badgley, she and actor Leonardo DiCaprio dated briefly.
Us Weekly reports that the couple married at Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, S.C., where the romantic flick "The Notebook" was filmed.
