Since her turn in The Devil Wears Prada, the British actress Emily Blunt has quickly been both a Hollywood and red carpet mainstay.

On the red carpet, Blunt’s glamorous, colorful style combines a classic appeal with just the right amount of edge to create bold, statement-making looks. From movie premieres to after parties, Blunt knows how to stand out in all the right ways, and is never one to shy away from a fashion risk—especially from her favorite brands, Prada, Alexander McQueen, Miu Miu, and Louis Vuitton. Below, soak in the very best of Emily Blunt’s red carpet fashion, from The Devil Wears Prada to Oppenheimer.
