Blake Lively does all of her own styling, which is a rare occurrence in Hollywood where most celebrities hire someone to source all of their looks for major events. Instead, Lively prefers to do it herself. “Probably because I have control issues and a big ego — that’s probably the honest answer,” Lively explained at a Barneys x Tod’s event in New York on Thursday, Women’s Wear Daily reports.
According to People, this year’s dress is her all-time favorite out of Lively’s past Met Gala dresses. “They’ve already worked on it for 600 hours, and it’s not done,” she told People. “I just sent Lorraine Schwartz and Christian Louboutin my dress, and said, ‘Okay let’s do something special,’” she told WWD. “They’re making something custom for it. So it’s kind of nice, because I have a bunch of artists around me who I have direct relationships with. It’s sort of a group effort with that. I rely on people who do that for a living rather than outsourcing it to someone else.”
