Blake Lively Brings The Sunshine In Neon Yellow Dress At New York Gala

It might hurt your eyes


Summer may be here (hello, sweaty tube) but Blake Lively is already way ahead of us.


The Gossip Girl star dazzled (literally) in a neon yellow, strapless Oscar De La Renta dress last night, swapping the usual black tie for something significantly brighter, while attending the American Ballet Theatre Spring Gala in New York.

The mother-of-two's appearance at the Gala comes days after catching up with her Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants co-stars – America Ferrera, Alexis Bledel, and Amber Tamblyn – to support Amber's premiere of her directorial debut, Paint in Black.

Lively wrapped herself in a clashing pink coat, and paired the look with statement turquoise earrings.

While the rest of us would resemble something closely related to a canary, she looked positively glowing, a week after it was announced she's to star as an MMA fighter in upcoming film Bruise.

It's probably that sweet Californian tan. Or that she's safe in the knowledge highlighter yellow teamed with turquoise (earrings) is a good look for her. She's a repeat offender, you see.

Lively sported a similar look at the premier of her film Savages in 2012 in a lemon chiffon Gucci gown. We like a girl who knows what works.
