And he’s giving us all major husband goals.
Blake Lively spent Valentine’s Day with her sister Robyn this year, together working with L’Oreal Paris to throw a Galentine’s Party, focusing on female empowerment and bringing women together.
To mark the occasion, Blake went all out, donning a SemSem dress covered in hearts and sculpting her hair into a heart-shaped up-do. The best part of her outfit, however, was an early Valentine’s present from Ryan Reynolds: a piece of jewellery that he had given her the day before.
Blake explained to her guests that she and her husband had actually already celebrated the occasion, with Ryan giving her a single rose gold arrow earring the day before, because he was apparently ‘too excited’ to wait. When explaining how she ‘wasn’t prepared’, she admitted, ‘Ryan’s a much better wife than me.’
The 18-karat gold and diamond earring is by Beverly Hills jewellery designer, Anita Ko, designed in the shape of cupid’s arrow.
For those of us that don’t live anywhere near Beverly Hills, don’t sweat, the earring is also available on Net-a-Porter, but at £1,400, it doesn’t come cheap.
Blake seemed to love it though, explaining the sentimental message behind it at her Galentine’s bash. ‘The cupid got me very bad with him,’ she said. ‘I have it very, very bad for my husband, so it’s a nice representation of that for me.’
‘My husband’s really good about writing cards,’ she added, going on to explain how her favourite gifts are the sentimental ones that come from the heart. It looks like her hubby is one step ahead of her, giving her a sentimental AND luxurious gift. And apparently that’s only one of her presents – Blake alluded to the fact that there might be more waiting for her at home. Oh to be Blake Lively.
There’s not much that would be worthy of leaving Ryan Reynolds alone on Valentine’s Day, but this party does seem to make the cut, focusing on empowering women.
Talking about why she hosted the party, Blake explained to E! News: ‘This is the first time in my lifetime where I have been aware of a women’s worth being questioned. I know it happens all the time everywhere, but I never felt it’. She continued: ‘I think it’s just so important that we come together and build each other up — and that we remind women of their value. It’s really beautiful to see women come together. It’s something I’ve never seen.’
