Blake Lively stepped out in a black Atelier Versace dress with gold sequined detailing and Lorraine Schwartz jewels. As she walked down the red carpet with husband Ryan Reynolds, we couldn’t help but notice her power stance with her hand on her hips. Power stance yes, but also an elegant way to draw attention to the sparkly gold pockets and emerald Lorraine Schwartz bracelets on her wrists.

The dress’s gold chain-mail detailing along the neck and — unexpectedly — along the pockets, were the most breathtaking part of the gown. For even more drama, the pockets were also encrusted with beautiful Swarovski crystals.

Variety magazine writes, “These pockets should win seven Golden Globes.”
