Emily Blunt In Elie Saab Couture – “The Adjustment Bureau” New York Premiere

On Monday night Emily Blunt dazzled on the red carpet at ‘The Adjustment Bureau’ New York Premiere.

The British actress gave us our first look of the Elie Saab Spring 2011 Couture collection on the red carpet which was only presented last month.

The blush long-sleeved cocktail dress with floral appliqués, lace detailing and subtle sequin embellishment is as beautiful as I hoped it would look on the red carpet.

It’s been a while since Emily look this good and thanks to my king she’s back on track.

Thankfully no tights were used in this look, just nude Brian Atwood ‘Wagner’ pumps and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Emily has recently undergone a hair colour change which I’m not too fond of, so I appreciate the neatly pulled back chignon which doesn’t distract me from her gorgeous dress.

    I am so glad to see you post this….I saw the premiere photos and loved it! Glad to get your thoughts with it 😉

    Personally, I think it is darling.

    Pretty, but too monochrome – red lipstick and darker hair (and maybe a contrasting clutch?) would have sold this for me.

    Love it! BDotW contender for me! <3

    She looks nice enough the problem is that you can tell that she doens’t love fashion..she always looks bored and stiff and never WORKS a look.

    it shoulde’ve been great,but it’s not really

    This is going to sound harsh, but : the dress is great, the problem is her. Like, theoretically, I can’t see any reason why I wouldn’t be wowed by that dress, but she’s not doing it for me.

    It’s probably the hair.

    I prefer the model’s version, but pink is my favorite color. Emily’s version has too much brown in it.

    So gorgeous! I think it’s real elegant and sweet, BDOTW if possible? 😀

    This is a gorgeous dress, and while I’d rather see a brunette or darker-skinned woman wear it, Emily does look really beautiful.

    My first thought, bland.. It’s all just one colour! She disappears.
    Had it been worn without the sheer fabric it might have looked better.
    Shame since it’s a lovely dress.

    BDOTW! This is one of the best she has ever looked!

  13. Nia February 16, 2011 at 13:40 #

    I really love this, I wouldn’t mind if it gets a BDOW nod.

  14. justme February 16, 2011 at 13:39 #

    Were she still a brunette, I would’ve loved it more. The light hair makes the whole thing look washed out.

  15. Manel February 16, 2011 at 13:06 #

    The dress is so beautiful

  16. Mahima February 16, 2011 at 12:41 #

    I like it but it washes her out a little. It blends with her skin too much for my liking.

  17. Amy February 16, 2011 at 12:27 #

    The sheer top and sleeves makes her look like she has really freckly skin from a distance.

  18. Snarky Sharky February 16, 2011 at 12:26 #

    SOOO cute 🙂 I’d say, just peachy 🙂

    It’s pretty, but I wasn’t wowed. It looks a little more matronly on Emily than it does on the model. I think the heavy eye make-up and lower hemline exacerbates this. It looks whimsical on the model, but stops short of ethereal on Emily.

    In my opinion, a dress that relies so heavily on a dramatically cinched in waist shouldn’t be worn by someone with a barrel-like torso.. it could be the angle, but I don’t think Emily pulled it off to maximum effect.
    Also, her olive complexion worked against the dress as her decolletage blends in with the rest of the gown, which I believe defeats the purpose of the sheer panel.

      I think this is a good analysis, but there is also something off a about the way the sheer panel fits on her particular shape–I want a visible neckline to compete a little bit with all that ornamentation on the bust.

    she looks amazing! love this look on her…very romantic and pretty. emily pulls off this look easily. bdotw!

  21. Gaber February 16, 2011 at 11:32 #

    The breast/arms embellishment is way over the top on both girls – the model and Emily. It unnecessarily adds a whole lot of volume.
    On top of that, I am also bothered by the length of the dress on Emily and how it completely matches her skin-tone and hair under that light.

    I am seriously bothered by the end-result. It’s simply not doing her any favours.

  22. robbie February 16, 2011 at 11:15 #

    not into the sleeves wish she got them removed but the rest of the look is nice.

  23. Jones19 February 16, 2011 at 10:50 #

    I hate how the dress matches her skintone exactly. It disappears.

    • molly February 16, 2011 at 23:05 #

      I feel the same way. Its a lot more pink on the model. I wish it were that way on the red carpet….its too matchy matchy. It could have been better if she had her darker hair and different shoes.

    Ellie Saab’s collection was my favorite from the Spring Couture 2011, I’m so happy to finally see it on the carpet. Emily Blunt looks gorgeous! BDOTW worthy!
