Emily Blunt Reveals Her Red Carpet-Ready Strategy

Fans of The Devil Wears Prada love to hate Emily Blunt‘s neurotic, die-for-fashion character; but in real life, the self-deprecating star is far from high-strung when it comes to her personal style. “I never have any idea [about what I’m wearing],” she confesses to Harper’s Bazaar UK. “I’ll look at several things and make a choice. But I’m much more excited by fashion than I was before The Devil Wears Prada.” In fact, working with stylist and designer Patricia Field on that movie changed her perception: “I could finally see how artistic and an extension of someone’s personality fashion can be.” Emily graces the magazine’s January issue, resplendent in a blue fringed Tom Ford dress, among a host of 70s glamour-inspired outfits by Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent. No one would ever guess from the gorgeous multi-page spread that looking good didn’t always come naturally for the English beauty. “I used to look like a deer in headlights on the red carpet,” the straight-talking actress admits. “You step out of the car and it’s bedlam. Everyone’s got crazy eyes. Now, I have a martini before I leave – just to take the edge off it.” With two huge movies (Gulliver’s Travels and The Adjustment Bureau) to promote, we’re sure the newlywed will look radiant on the red carpet.
