    Blake Lively went to extra mile to make sure her accessories perfectly fit her look during an event at New York’s Empire State Building on Monday night.

    The A Simple Favor star, 34, admitted she painted her $995 jeweled Manolo Blahnik ‘Hangisi’ pumps with scarlet nail polish to match her embellished ruby red Georges Chakra minidress.

    While showing off her look on her Instagram Story, Blake offered a number of apologies, which included a sorry to Manolo for ‘painting the white jewels on my shoes with nail polish as I was walking out the door.’

    She went on with a ‘hush’ emoji, then coyly asked: ‘Worth it tho??’

    In the post the wife of Ryan Reynolds also apologized to designer label Max Mara for tying her coat ‘like the fifth Golden Girl.’

    ‘Wow, it’s divine though,’ she went on.

    Blake also said sorry ‘to the color pink for using you to cheat on the color red with this stunning Chanel bag.’

    Blake donned the stunning look as she celebrated the end of the United States travel ban on Monday November 8 at an event hosted by British Airways, NYC & Company and the British Consulate General in NYC.

    At the celebration — which focused namely on UK travelers — Blake gave a welcome speech where she spoke about her joy at the end of the ban. 

    ‘It’s an honor having you all here, just as like a mama and a human, and a New Yorker,’ she said. 

    ‘I’ve never felt more like a New Yorker than I do tonight, so thank you all for giving me this feeling — selfishly this is what I’m taking out if it,’ she continued to joke.

    ‘Spilling the tea…the #BritsareBack! Celebrating the return of our friends from across the pond by lighting up blue red and white,’ the buildings official count said.

    After the welcome portion of the event, the iconic building hosted a booming cocktail party and afterwards attendees were allowed up to the top of the building to take in the skyline. 

    Blake slipped a matching scarlet coat over her dazzling dress and even took a few selfies on the observation deck. 

    Dixon announced during his welcome speech that in honor of the ban being lifted NYC & Co. — New York City’s official marketing, tourism and partnership organization — would be launching a new partnership with British Airways. 

    As a way to spur travel from the UK’s main hub London, the airline would be scheduling up to eight flights daily to NYC’s LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy airports.

    On Monday the travel ban — which was first put in place by former US President Donald Trump on account of the COVID-19 pandemic — was lifted by President Joe Biden after 20 months. 

    The old rules had barred international visitors from 33 countries, including the U.K., South Africa, Brazil and much of Europe from visiting the US.

    The end of the ban comes just before the holiday season — a huge time for tourism recovery, as international travelers account for 50% of all the tourism spending, at 20% of the volume in NYC alone. 

     Under the new rules, visitors can fly into the US with proof of full vaccination, though there are some exemptions for travelers under the age of 18, and passengers hailing from countries with low vaccine availability.
