Emily Blunt In Elie Saab – Elie Saab Private Dinner Party

At the Crown in New York City, stars gathered for a private dinner held in honour of the king, Mr Elie Saab.

The ladies were of course all dressed Elie Saab’s creations.

Emily Blunt is probably Mr Saab’s biggest celebrity fan alongside Fan Bingbing.

The British actress has worn his dresses on many occasions; most recently the Emmy’s and the Golden Globes.

On this occasion she wore a belted yellow ¾ sleeve dress which she teamed with an Elie Saab grey lame diamond clasp clutch.

Her spring dress is perfect for such an occasion and I will be eternally grateful to Emily for not killing the look with nude, black or white pumps or any type of clunky triple stacked platform heels.

Those yellow Sergio Rossi ‘Ophidia’ embellished sandals couldn’t be more perfect.

Love that red hot lip colour.

MEUS Designs earrings completed the look.

    She is absolute perfection, from head to toe!! So beautiful and I love the red lips and nails!

    I do like Xtina – but take note, this is how you wear red lipstick without OVER doing it.

    love the reds!

    I love Emily’s style, she’s always so classy. She looks lovely here, I especially like the red lipstick paired with the yellow dress.

    Elegant dress. I think that she’s a bit uncomfortable with the open neckline, as she pushing her shoulders way back (at least that’s what it looks like). Other than that, I like it! The shoes are AWESOME, because black pumps would have killed it…or white (lol FC I don’t think you could handle another pair after La La’s)
    I would have gone with a pink lip and pink nails, though. The red/yellow combo is a bit too harsh for me, but she still looks good.

    She has a very pale complexion, so maybe it’s true that yellow is not really her colour. However, I love this look. Beautiful dress + pretty lady + great accessories + flawless makeup = WIN. 😀

    What a cute dress! And I love her make up.

    I love yellow dresses. I need a pretty one for summer.

    The clutch keeps me away from loving the whole look. If I ignore it, she looks great.

  10. Jessica April 6, 2012 at 7:46 pm #

    I think she looks great!

    Love the colour of the dress, but just not on Emily. It’s doing nothing for her complection, washing her out completely.

  12. SilentVisitor April 6, 2012 at 6:54 pm #

    I love this look. I love ES……

  13. SilentVisitor April 6, 2012 at 6:53 pm #

    FC, how are you going to choose the list of dresses deserving to be BDOTW?

    • Fashion Critic April 6, 2012 at 7:10 pm #

      It’s already done…it was fairly easy to pick 10 this week.

      It will post later this evening.

    I LOVE IT! She looks so amazing. Love Emily Blunt.

  16. Jill April 6, 2012 at 5:54 pm #

    this color is just the best dress color in the world!

  17. Rebecca Z April 6, 2012 at 5:52 pm #

    BDOTW in my opinion. Love it.

    The dress looks a bit wrinkled but I still like it on her.

  19. bm April 6, 2012 at 4:49 pm #

    I don’t like it (except for red lippie). She’s not selling this look to me, and the dress is usual for Saab’s standard.

    I adore the colour, I love the dress and the red lips are fantastic – but I am not feeling the look.
    It clashes a bit with her skin-tone.
    (It might just be the poor light, but honestly, when you are throwing party for the sole purpose of creating buzz for the clothes, you need to think about these things.)

    Such a shame really, because otherwise this would have been absolutely amazing.

    • Mick April 6, 2012 at 7:30 pm #

      I agree: she’s obviously beautiful, the dress (and shoes) are amazing, but yellow is really not her color.

    • gurlygurl April 8, 2012 at 3:28 pm #

      I must agree, I love Emily and I love everything about this look but I would not have chosen that yellow for her skin tone. I love that she’s gone with such a bold red against the yellow though. On the right skin tone this is a knock your socks off look….Emily hasn’t done that for me but she does look lovely. BTW FC, any chance of getting an idea of what that lip and nail color may be? 😉 I simply must try that red and yellow combo!

  21. Ritika April 6, 2012 at 4:23 pm #

    simply fabulous

  22. Hisadora April 6, 2012 at 4:14 pm #

    She looks picture perfect…. so elegant and pretty!

    • Riley April 6, 2012 at 4:58 pm #

      I agree. BDOTW. Emily makes me swoon. As does her goofy looking but adorbz husband.
