For a big event like Met Gala, there is a lot of time and effort that goes into the decor especially the carpet that the high profile guests walk on.
Phillip Bland, a decorative artist on Long Island is responsible for painting the carpet, and got the prestigious job seven years ago after working with Anna Wintour on her various homes, Curbed reported.
"My hope is when the final design comes out, it doesn’t clash too much,” Bland told the publication on celebs walking the carpet.
“If someone spent all this money on this beautiful dress and all of a sudden they get out there — I’m sure they don’t know what the carpet is gonna look like.”
With this in mind, let's take a look at Lively's outfits which seamlessly match the carpet.

At the 2016 Met Gala, Lively wore a Burberry blush pink strapless gown with a red floral design on the train along with a cape to match, and the carpet for this year just so happened to be a similar blush pink to her dress, with flickers of red at point - much like her train.

Versace dressed Lively for her 2017 Met Gala where she sported a fitted gown with gold beading and included a mix of gold and blue feathers at the bottom of the dress. The carpet for this event was also a comparable gold with a touch of blue, just like Lively's dress.

In 2018, Lively walked the carpet donning a ruby and gold Versace gown which included a bejewelled corset and intricate beading on her skirt.
Again, it seems the actress match the colour of the carpet which was gold and had a ruby pattern around the edges.
