Which Was Your Favourite Emily Blunt Look Of The Week?

Which Was Your Favourite Emily Blunt Look Of The Week

It’s always a delight to see Emily Blunt on the red carpet. This week she’s served up three red carpet looks during the ‘Into The Wood’ world premiere and the Dubai Film Festival, of which only two I liked.

As there has been so much debate about Emily looks, only a poll will decided which look you wish to see up for BDOTW.

Emily Blunt In Lanvin – IWC Filmmakers Awards

Emily Blunt In Lanvin - IWC Filmmakers Awards
Emily Blunt attended the IWC Filmmaker Award Night 2014, held on day two of the 11th annual Dubai International Film Festival, at The One & Only Royal Mirage on Thursday (December 11) in Dubai.

Wearing an improved look over her first Dubai film fest outing the day before, the actress and IWC Ambassador donned a Lanvin Resort 2015 lace gown.

The rich emerald-green colour was striking, and the semi-sheer effect helped achieve a certain and much-needed lightness to the more bottom-heavy silhouette of the dress.

Matching gemstone earrings continued the monochromatic theme, with the requisite IWC watch rounding out the styling although perhaps not in the most ideal way.

Emily Blunt In Zuhair Murad – 11th Annual Dubai International Film Festival Opening Night Gala

Emily Blunt In Zuhair Murad - 11th Annual Dubai International Film Festival Opening Night Gala

Emily Blunt attended the Opening Night Gala during day one of the 11th Annual Dubai International Film Festival held at the Madinat Jumeirah Complex on Wednesday (December 10) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

The British actress wore a Zuhair Murad Spring 2015 limelight-yellow floral-embroidered two-piece look styled with Lorraine Schwartz jewels, an IWC timepiece and Jimmy Choo shoes.

You may be surprised, but I have to say I’m not a fan of this look.

Not the colour – as the tone feels too harsh for Emily. Not the style – perhaps I would’ve preferred a full gown over a top and skirt. Not the watch – pretty sure this was obligatory, but it doesn’t go with the look.

I much prefer the Dolce & Gabbana look from earlier in the week.

Which do you prefer?

Emily Blunt In Dolce & Gabbana – ‘Into The Woods’ World Premiere

Emily Blunt In Dolce & Gabbana - 'Into The Woods' World Premiere

Emily Blunt attended the ‘Into The Woods’ world premiere held at the Ziegfeld Theater on Monday (December 8) in New York City.

Considering the title of the movie, Emily’s bewitching Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2015 dress feels rather apt.

I love how the delicate point d’esprit bodice and sleeves counter the enchanting heavily rose-embroidered full skirt in this fairytale piece.

The dramatic nature of the look was amped up with a glossy red lip, with the rest of the styling including Louboutin pumps and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Serving up a double dose of Dolce, John Krasinski suited up in the Italian brand, donning a brown suit. Yep, brown suit are in my friends.

Emily Blunt In David Koma & Tory Burch – Late Show With David Letterman

Emily Blunt In David Koma & Tory Burch - Late Show With David Letterman

Emily Blunt was spotted making her way to the Ed Sullivan Theatre in New York City on Tuesday (November 25) for a guest appearance on ‘Late Show With David Letterman’.

The actress wore a David Koma Spring 2015 colour-block black and white dress with double-strap shoulder detail, which is a commercial version of a shorter piece which stormed the runway.

While I’m sure the shorter version will make its way down the red carpet on the likes of Kristen Stewart or Emma Watson, this lady-like offering was much more in tune with Emily’s style.

Keeping the winter chill at bay, she slung a Tory Burch ‘Heather’ shearling black coat detailed with leather trims over her shoulders, simply adding a pair of Brian Atwood ‘Cassandra’ pumps to round her super-chic look.

You can buy Emily’s Tory Burch Heather Coat from Saks.com and Bloomingdale’s.

Elie Saab Private Dinner Party #ElieSaabLA

Elie Saab Private Dinner Party #ElieSaabLA

Elie Saab hosted an event in LA on Thursday (November 13), finally getting a chance to meet all those ladies who he helps secure best-dressed status whenever they wear his gowns.

Ashley Madekwe: The gorgeous actress was by far my favourite at this event, wearing a teal look from the Spring 2015 collection styled with a cream Elie Saab clutch. It’s a typically chic offering, easy, effortless, tailored to perfection, with plenty of feminine appeal. I’m crushing on her new bangs too. This is a BDOTW contender if ever I saw one.

Lily Collins: The lady of the hour must have been Lily Collins, who had a breathtaking turn on the red carpet a few weeks ago wearing an Elie Saab ombre Couture gown which I’m pretty confident will be top of many BDOTY lists. Going for something less dramatic on this occasion, the actress wore an uber-chic short jumpsuit from the Spring 2015 collection spliced with a lace sleeve and ruffled detail, which she styled with a black Elie Saab bag and Louboutins. No Lily Collins look would be complete without a bold lip.
