Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds make rare red carpet appearance

Blake Lively and her husband Ryan Reynolds made a rare red carpet appearance on Friday.


The low-key couple, who married in a secret ceremony in 2012, were every inch the glamorous Hollywood duo when they attended The Captive premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.

Blake turned heads in a show-stopping strapless monochrome gown which she accessorised with a glittering diamond necklace, earrings and a cuff bracelet.

The 26-year-old Californian opted for a simple but elegant beauty look, adding a pop of colour with scarlet lipstick and nail polish and sweeping her blonde locks into a low bun.

Ryan, 37, echoed his wife's black and white outfit in a smart tuxedo, complete with a white bow tie.

The duo were out to support Vancouver-born Ryan's latest silver screen venture, The Captive, in which he plays a landscape gardener whose daughter Cassandra was kidnapped while walking through a car-park eight years previously.

The film, which also stars Rosario Dawson, Scott Speedman and Mireille Enos follows Cassandra's parents as they try to work out the mystery of her disappearance and discover if she is still alive.

Blake has made several stylish appearance at Cannes this year.

On Thursday the former Gossip Girl star chose a stunning, intricately embellished, dress from French fashion house Chanel for the premiere of Mr Turner.

Despite appearing self-assured on the red carpet, however, Blake recently revealed that she lacks confidence when it comes to events she will be photographed at.

"I am so not confident on the red carpet," she said. "I just sit there thinking, 'What would Gisele do?' It is such a sensory overload."
