Blake Lively showed off her legs as usual at the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala in NYC yesterday. She opted for a short blue Marchesa Fall 2010 peacock draped chiffon strapless dress with ruffled paisley detail. She brought much-needed color to the event, and we think she looks great. What do you think?

The "Gossip Girl" star was recently named one of the most stylish stars of 2009 by Glamour magazine. Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Cole took the top spot, followed by Rihanna, Blake, and Leighton Meester. Kate Moss, Beyonce and Emma Watson also featured in the top 10.

Style-conscious "Gossip Girl" fans will soon be able to get their hands on the show's official clothing range - TV bosses have signed a deal with a British high street store to create a fashion collection. The collection will be based on the show's stylish characters, including Blake's couture-clad socialite Serena van der Woodsen and Leighton's Blair Waldorf.
