Being a fashion icon is serious business and sometimes that business involves hopping over the ropes at museums to fix your dress.

Blake Lively took to Instagram Stories to share a video of herself standing in the middle of the Crown to Couture exhibit in London's Kensington Palace to fix the display of her famous New York City-inspired gown from the 2022 Met Gala.

“When you’re the clown who hops over the rope at the museum to fix the exhibit," she wrote on top of the video which showed her trying to show the inside of the dress. "Happy almost Virgo season folx.”

In the following post, Lively reflected on seeing the pieces she wore to the prestigious fashion event in a museum.

"This was absolutely surreal. Seeing this crown that we made in Kensington Palace," she wrote. "I still feel like a kid playing dress up every time I get to wear a gown and borrowed jewels out. to see it memorialized like this... just. Wow. Something I'll never forget."

Earlier this year, Lively gave birth to her fourth child with her husband Ryan Reynolds. On Super Bowl Sunday the actress revealed that she had given birth to her baby prior to the game and took to Instagram to share several photos of her with her husband and his mother, Tammy Reynolds.

Fans immediately noticed that her baby bump was missing and she joked that she'd been "busy" in the caption.

Blake broke the news of her pregnancy in September 2022 when she surprised attendees at the 10th Annual Forbes Power Women's Summit in New York with a baby bump.

According to TMZ, event employees only let a few photographers take shots of Lively telling them beforehand that it would be a "sensitive shoot" and they would find out why when she walked down the red carpet.
