“This, is without a doubt my favorite look of all time,” Blake said of the Versace gown she wore to 2018’s “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” gala. “The is the Met Gala 2018, Versace dress. I get very involved in the design of the dresses, I don’t know if it’s just that I’m a Virgo, or that I need a life.”

“This one is actually a dress that they had made, but it had a train that was like this — it was a shorter train,” she continued. “So, we took this dress, and said, ‘Ok, can you guys add like 8 feet of train? Can you add beading on the inside?’ This had ruching in the middle, which kind of looked like it was too tight and pulling at the hips, so I was like, ‘We need to pick up that pattern here as well, so that it looks like a part of the dress.’”

Blake added that the headpiece she wore was also put together right before the event, with Lorraine Schwartz crafting the crown out of brass and brown diamonds.

“And this was just a headpiece that Lorraine made, with these brown diamond and brass — it wasn’t even gold, it was brass — it was like bendable hardware store brass,” she said. “These earrings she made the night before. She took these giant emeralds and stuck it on one of her sister, Ofira’s shield gold earrings, and she stuck an emerald on top, so, it was very makeshift.”

She continued, “Christian Louboutin made the most beautiful shoes. I just love this look so much. I just thought it was just so striking.”

Blake‘s three daughters, James, 7, Inez, 5 and Betty, 2, are also big fans of the look, with the actress using photos of the gown to remind them to behave when they’re giving her attitude.

“It’s something that when my kids are giving me attitude, I’m like, ‘This is your mom.’ I mean come on — I try to tell them that I’m real-life royalty and that they’re lucky that I’m raising them,” she explained. “They don’t buy it. They don’t believe it.”

She also discussed her Met Gala look from this year and shared some more context about the meaning behind the gorgeous Versace gown.

“What an honor to get to host and to wear this dress. Versace turned it out,” she said. “Rather than looking at fashion from the gilded age, I wanted to look at architecture. New York has been such a critical part of who I am. It’s the place I choose to live, it’s the love of my life — other than my family — so, I thought, ‘Well, I’d love to arrive in a copper dress, and have that dress patina as I ascend the carpet and turn fair degree — which is oxidized copper.”

She continued, “The statue of liberty obviously showed up shiny, copper, like a penny, and now it’s the green that we have. So, instead of me performing, I wanted, sort of, the dress to perform.”
