But the once put-upon, snarky fashion assistant to Ms. Streep has genuinely arrived in Hollywood and is now a star in her own right. She got her starring turn as another famous Brit- playing the title role in 2009’s The Young Victoria. With her European charm, unabashed excitement and girl-next-door beauty, Emily has taken both sides of the pond by storm.
Next up was an obvious Matt Damon screen teaming. (Side note: I mean, who gets ahead in Hollywood without at one point working with Matt Damon?) Anyway, Emily turned heads as the adorably doomed girlfriend that Matt is determined-if not destined- to meet.
She even had a starring turn in real life in a role most girls dream about- Michael Buble’s girlfriend. The two were a sickenly sweet example of young love for three years, but like most of Buble’s songs, it was too good to last.
Of course Emily picked up her fashionable self and moved on to another equally yummy star, the much sought-after John Krasinski. Last July, they tied the knot in an intimate ceremony. The couple regularly sizzles on Red Carpets.
The 2010 Golden Globes showed off Emily’s philanthropic side, too. She auctioned off her amazing blush Dolce & Gabbana gown to raise money for Haiti relief.
At the 2009 Screen Actors Guild Awards, Emily caught fashion attention for her sparkly silver Pamela Roland. She’s certainly comfortable wearing haute couture and showing some skin. I loved how she went minimal with her accessories.
Of course, my favorite Emily Blunt fashion style might be her stunning emerald moment at the 2012 Screen Actors Guild Awards. She drew inspiration right from the runway, and just screamed “elegance” in this Oscar de la Renta. Who doesn’t love a bold green?
On and off the Red Carpet, Emily has been pretty loyal in emulating the role that made her famous, and stuck to high-end couture designers for her fashion moments. After all, once you wear Chanel boots on a set for a long period of time, I can’t imagine it’s easy to let all that glamour go.
Next up: she will star alongside Jason Segal in the much anticipated The Five Year Engagement. Not only do the ads for this film look hilarious and adorable, but Emily certainly garnered some interest when she showed up at the film’s New York City premiere at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival in a spectacular Jason Wu. Is it just me, or does it look better on Emily than on the model?
Pair that fashion sense with Emily’s super-sophisticated accent and Grade A man candy, and you have one of best British imports since tea and crumpets.
