When questioned on the red carpet about whether fans will see Lively at the yearly largest night in fashion, the 35-year-old actress responded, “You will not. But I’ll be keeping an eye out.”

Lively donned a leather brown belted midi dress with a plunging neckline and strappy matched heels to the event on Thursday. She accessorized her ensemble with massive gold jewelry and abundant curls in her hair, which she wore loose.

Lively has been a regular at the Met Gala since 2008, often appearing alongside her husband, Ryan Reynolds, whom she has been married to since 2012. In fact, it was their first red-carpet appearance as a couple in 2014.

At the event, where they both served as co-chairs with Oscar winner Regina King and Broadway superstar Lin-Manuel Miranda, Lively looked absolutely elegant as she posed with Reynolds.
