It's been a huge week for celebs this week, with the 2013 Met Gala dominating the agenda for most, and movie screenings entertaining everyone from Miranda Kerr Carey Mulligan and Leo DiCaprio. Jennifer Lawrence and Sarah Jessica Parker shared a funny moment on the red carpet at the Met Ball, while Beyoncé's dramatic arrival sent the photographers' flashes into overdrive. Blake Lively got back to business after a long break from the spotlight (those legs look longer than ever!), and Baz Luhrmann was flanked by his stars at a special showing of The Great Gatsby.

One of our favourite on- and offscreen couples, Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder, have called it quits. The Vampire Diaries stars dated for over three years, and despite their breakup, they'll still be working together on set when the fifth season begins filming. Nina and Ian aren't the first TV co-stars to strike up a romantic relationship — small-screen duos like Rachel Bilson and Adam Brody, Blake Lively and Penn Badgley, and Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron also hooked up during their downtime, and leading ladies like Jennifer Garner, Emily VanCamp and Sophia Bush were lucky enough to find love on more than one set. Click through to see 30 couples that took their love off screen — and even worked together well past their demise.
Blake Lively showed off her long legs during a photo shoot in NYC today and modelled a series of looks for an upcoming US magazine spread. The actress has been keeping a low profile for the past few months but re-emerged on the social scene in a big way yesterday when she attended the 2013 Met Gala wearing a stunning Gucci gown. Unlike other couples who were loved-up on the red carpet, Blake was solo — she and husband Ryan Reynolds still prefer to keep their relationship away from cameras, as they demonstrated at the March premiere of Ryan’s animation The Croods, which Blake attended while keeping a distance from her husband.
She didn't go punk, per se, but Blake Lively did deliver some serious glamour on the Met Gala red carpet. The actress — and face of Gucci Première — had a bombshell moment in a curve-conscious, strapless Gucci confection, adorned with silver and matte black feather motif embroideries. She added to the drama with a pair of fringed earrings, which she showcased with swept-back hair. Are you a fan of Blake's dramatic look?

Blake Lively stunned in a Gucci frock on the Costume Institute Benefit red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. Blake is back in on the action after being notably absent from last year's ball in favour of a getaway to Vancouver with now-husband Ryan Reynolds. She is somewhat of a Met Gala vet, and Blake even stole the coveted role as Karl Lagerfeld's date while representing Chanel for the event back in 2011. Her return to the red carpet today is her first public appearance in months, and she certainly made a statement. What did you think of Blake's dress?

Nude lips are a makeup go-to, at any time of year. This week, three ladies stepped out rocking the look along with very different makeup palettes. Blake Lively paired her glossy nudes with peach shadow and emerald-green liner, while Jennifer Lopez added black liner with amped-up lashes. And Brandy added a smoky brown shadow to complement her glossy lips. Nude lips are so versatile that it basically pairs with anything, but whose did you prefer?
Sarah Jessica Parker and Blake Lively's ensembles at last night's Target Toronto opening were a clear sign that the weather is heating up in the US. With floral embellishments a-plenty, the two showed off their respective takes on the new season with a light colour palette and whimsical accessories. Sarah Jessica Parker looked casual-chic in a pair of cropped white jeans, sheer pin-dot blouse, and black blazer. For added oomph, the style icon channelled her inner Carrie Bradshaw by accessorising her outfit with a colourful oversize floral corsage and sharp pointed-toe pumps. Meanwhile, Blake Lively opted for a more ethereal look in a soft watercolour-print Roland Mouret dress and whimsical Christian Louboutin pumps. Both ladies look gorgeous, but which floral-embellished outfit do you prefer?
Blake Lively posed for a shot inside Elle Decor and chatted about the new home she and Ryan Reynolds purchased in Bedford, NY. She gushed about decorating the kitchen, which will feature a blue La Cornue stove, and shared that the space is "the most important part of my home." Blake and Ryan have been lying low since tying the knot last year, though they did step out for the LA premiere of Ryan's The Croods earlier this month. Here's more from Blake Lively in Elle Decor:
- On why she and Ryan chose their new home: "The location is great. And we loved the kitchen. It's really the family room."
- On sharing the kitchen with family: "But I'll have to fight my mum for it. She is an amazing chef. We've got a big family, and we're very close. My brothers are great at pies, and the girls usually do the savoury things."
- On her favourite recipes: "I never really cook from recipes. But the worst is when something turns out great and I can't figure out how to make it again!"
Sarah Jessica Parker and Blake Lively helped launch Canada's first Target store in Toronto yesterday. Blake wore a Roland Mouret dress and Christian Louboutin shoes while SJP kept things a bit more casual in white jeans. The pair were joined by Canadian actress and Happy Endings star Elisha Cuthbert, who shopped around the store and later gushed about meeting Sarah Jessica. She tweeted, "What a dream, chatting and hanging out with the one and only Sarah Jessica Parker."
Blake is no stranger to the country, as she is married to Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds, and the two hung out there in February while Ryan filmed Queen of the Night. Blake has been taking some time off from work after she wrapped Gossip Girl last year. Meanwhile, her Target shopping buddy SJP is reportedly working on two films and recently checked out the Tilda Swinton sleeping in a box exhibit at New York's Museum of Modern Art.
