Blake Lively isn't one to get dressed up on a school night.

As a mother of three kids, the actress is likely wearing comfortable PJs when the sun sets on the East Coast. But with New York Fashion Week currently underway, the 34-year-old couldn't pass up the opportunity to celebrate Michael Kors' Fall/Winter 2022 runway show.

"This is his first night show ever, which is very exciting," she exclusively told E! News on Feb. 15. "I could put my kids to bed and then secretly sneak out and go have a whole alternative life."

As Blake watched Irina Shayk, Emily Ratajkowski, Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid walk the runway, the actress wore a baby blue sparkling coordinated bra, coat and skirt. The fabulous ensemble isn't exactly something Blake wears every night.

"I like not wearing pajamas. Anything is a level up from that," she joked. "I like a tone on tone on tone moment. Michael just makes the sleekest lines and you always feel effortless in it and still glamorous, which is him. He's effortless and glamorous and sparkly and sunny and magical."

Camila Mendes, Brooke Shields, Dove Cameron, Ariana DeBose, Addison Rae, Olivia Culpo, Lori Harvey, Anna Wintour and Amelia Gray Hamlin were just some of the familiar faces who traveled to NYC's Terminal 5 to see his latest collection. 

As for Blake, she persuaded her sister Robyn Lively to stay in the city just a few extra days to experience a very special show. 

"She was supposed to leave town," she explained. "It was her birthday last week and when I ran into Michael at the Music Man the other night, he told us about the show and we had to go and I talked my sister into staying just for Michael. She's not here for me. She's here for him."

And while husband Ryan Reynolds was unable to make the show, he couldn't help but comment on his wife's look for the night.

When sharing her outfit on Instagram Stories, Ryan added several heart emojis. He definitely, maybe loves it.
