The 26-year-old former Gossip Girl actress, who can be seen next year in the film The Age of Adaline, made her comments to Vogue magazine in an August 2014 cover story posted online this week. The outlet also features Lively in a American frontier-inspired gorgeous photo spread, shot in Wyoming (see photos, below).
She said that while she watched Florence Welch singing at her wedding reception, sparklers were brought out. One of them burned the front of her custom-made Marchesa gown. It was her husband who first noticed that the dress was ruined.
"And later, my dress was hanging up and Ryan said, ‘Isn't that beautiful?' I said, ‘What?' And he pointed to the burn," she told Vogue. "My heart just stopped, because it was such a sensitive little subject. And he said, ‘You'll always remember that moment with Florence singing and the sparklers. You have that forever, right there, preserved.' Now that's my favorite part of the dress."
