High praise for the birthday girl!

Remember when Ryan Reynolds referred to Blake Lively as the "Beyoncé of red carpets"? He may be biased as her hubby, but he's got a point. The former Gossip Girl star never falls short on the red carpet, which is a particularly impressive feat considering she's one of Hollywood's few stars who operate without a stylist. Since giving birth to baby James, Blake's kept her red carpet cameos to a minimum. But that doesn't mean we don't recall her many, many unbeatable style moments.

In honor of Blake's 28th birthday, we're proving her hubby's point by throwing it back to 28 times the actress crushed the red carpet (starting with the breathtaking Monique Lhuillier above, ahh).
