Since her starring turn in The Devil Wears Prada, British actress Emily Blunt has quickly become one to watch on the red carpet. Her glamorous, colorful style combines a classic appeal with just the right amount of edge to create bold, statement-making looks. From movie premieres to award show after-parties, Blunt knows how to stand out in all the right ways, and is never one to shy away from a fashion risk. As we have watched the Hollywood actress take on additional roles of wife and mother, she has remained just as stylish as ever.
