Looks like motherhood suits Blake Lively!

The Gossip Girl alum looked stunning as she attended the Gabriela Cadena show at Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week on Thursday, Feb. 12, wearing an incredibly flattering black and white dress and eye-catching yellow clutch bag.

The new mom was almost glowing as she posed for photographers before entering the show, her blonde hair falling over her shoulders as she showcased her slender figure in the Gabriela Cadena bodycon dress.

Lively and husband Ryan Reynolds welcomed their first daughter less than two months ago, shortly before the New Year. They have yet to officially reveal her name, although E! recently reported the little tot is called James.

And while Lively has been enjoying a bit of time out from the limelight to dote on her new bundle of joy, dad Reynolds has been gushing about the joys of parenthood.

"I'm happily not getting any sleep," he told Kelly Ripa during an appearance on Live! With Kelly and Michael earlier this month. "These days I just sort of think of blinking as taking tiny little naps all day," he quipped.

"It's what you do. You're up all night, but it's weird — you're, like, happy about it in a strange way. If anything else woke up every 45 minutes during the night, demanding to see my wife's breasts, you kill it. But, you know, a baby, you're like, 'Aw, woohoo!'"
