On Tuesday, the actress attended an event for Betty Buzz, her new line of drink mixers, at the Empire State Building in New York City. Lively wore an all-red look that was made up of a Max Mara trench coat, a Georges Chakra dress, a Chanel purse, and the $995 Manolo Blahnik Hangisi heels.
She shared a picture of herself from the event on Instagram and jokingly apologized to the designers for how she looked.
Lively apologized to Max Mara for tying the coat "like I'm the 5th Golden Girl," and to the color pink "for using you to cheat on my red look" with a Chanel bag. She also said sorry to Manolo Blahnik for completely changing the look of her classic heels.
"I'm sorry: @manoloblahnik for painting the white jewels on my shoes with red nail polish as I was walking out the door. worth it tho," she wrote.
The shoes Lively was wearing in the picture normally have "a square crystal buckle encased in a gunmetal frame," according to the designer's website.
Representatives for Lively and Blahnik did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
