Cover Girl: Emily Blunt for Harper’s Bazaar Australia

Posted on October 04, 2012

Miss Emily perfects her bitchface for Harper’s Bazaar:

Emily Blunt covers the November 2012 issue of Harper’s Bazaar Australia magazine in a Just Cavalli dress accessorized with an Yves Saint Laurent ring.

 Just Cavalli Resort 2013 Collection/Model: Mariane Fassarella

Yves Saint Laurent Arty Gold-plated Glass Ring


We’ve got to give her credit. That ring alone would overwhelm lesser mortals, let alone the earrings or the dress, which is far too much dress for most ladies to pull off. Such is the power of her face-giving skills that you don’t even notice the pieces. They just become another part of the backdrop in service to showcasing that gorgeous face.

      The best of 1970’s era diva-dom.

    • MitchellGilburne

      Love her with lighter hair!

    • Kiltdntiltd

      Perfect presentation in every respect. Appropriate service done to the products on display, as well as beautifully showcasing Ms Blunt.

      • Gayer Than Thou

        And she wakes up next to John Krasinski.  Hate her.

        • karen

          And her sister just married Stanley Tucci….sigh…

          • Gayer Than Thou

            Ugh.  Hate them both!

    • Knightley

      Was she a model before she was an actress?  She really does have some great skills.

    • Kim Brightman

      I’ve always thought she’s gorgeous but I never even noticed her eyes.  Incredible.

    • mmgk

      She makes it all look better than it should. 

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Now that’s giving good face-your WERQ it, girl!

    • Sugarbeetle

      My mom had a dress like that in the 70s. I always thought she looked like a model when she wore it. Then again, I was five. 

    • Bert Keeter

      She is stunning…loved her in Young Victoria….more please!

      • SoAustentatious

        I watch that every time it’s on.  And The Devil Wears Prada.  I can’t get enough.  She’s fabulous.

      • SoAustentatious

        Oh, you’re Bert! You were my favorite! And you’re a fan of The Young Victoria!

    • StellaZafella


      Thanks for pointing out the other details on this shot TLo…

      Until I read your comments I was like, “Hmmm…wha’…whoa baby! Pardon my stare!”

    • TonyGo

      Very 80’s Kristin Scott Thomas.  Pretty.

    • frannyprof

      Gorgeous. And I *covet* that ring.

    • VioletFem

      Only Emily Blunt can make a Cavalli dress look classy.

      • foodycatAlicia

         Thank the gods of styling they didn’t make her wear that terrible trucker cap.

    • Peter Hepburn

      Was she always that slim?  Her neck and face look oddly narrow.

      • ampg

        I noticed that, too. I’m hoping it’s Photoshop.

        • Heather

          She looks fantastic in general, though her neck could go on Photoshop Disasters.

      • NC_Meg

        I wondered the same thing. I think it has to be Photoshop.

        • Little_Olive

          There dis photoshop it like there is no tomorrow and ruined the lovely natural shape of her face in the process, but there is a dark lock of hair on the back of her neck making it look weirdly thin.

          • Peter Hepburn

             You’re right – that lock of hair does conceal part of her neck.  Thanks for pointing that out.

          • DesertDweller79

             Ah, yes.  You are right.

      • Nora M.

        Has to be photoshop. No way her neck would hold her head if it were actually that thin.

        • Dee B

           I think it’s just her hair covering the back of her neck

      • DesertDweller79

         I’m sincerely hoping it is just bad photoshop

    • Susi R

       She looks lovely! I love it!

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      Great cover.  She looks like Lauren Bacall.

    • hughman

      “ANDY! BIANCA! Air-kiss darlings. This old ring? It’s Yves. Oh look. there he is! YVES, DARLING! LOOK, THE RING! Sweet man. Can’t understand a bloody word he says. Let’s dance.”

    • MilaXX

      Love the ring but she doesn’t look all that fierce to me. Constipated maybe, but fierce? Nope.

    • SapphoPoet

      She looks so completely different to me than when she was in The Devil Wears Prada. Of course, that was years ago, but I never seem to recognize her in pictures nowadays. I think her looks have changed a lot since then. 

    • Rand Ortega

      Dayum. Ms. Blunt is giving some serious face right there. Very hot Marisa Berenson vibe. 

    • jilly_d

      agreed.  I got to the photo of the ring and i was like, that hideous monstrosity was in the picture?  I had to scroll back up.  Primo bitchface.

    • berkeleygirl

      Seriously, is there anything that Emily Blount cannot do? 

    • Araina23

      She was so fantastic in Looper.  The lighter hair color really de-ages her.  Not that she ever looked old or anything.  

    • A B

      I don’t know–I think her face looks weird.  I hardly recognize her. 

      • AzulFashion

        I agree.  Her face looks oddly shaped.  I bet, she is embarrassed by that photo.

      • iheartbuffy

         FOR SERIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ITS SCARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She looks like she needs to be hospitalized from that photo!!!!!!

    • Adriana Blair

      I don’t even really like the ring or the dress, but I can’t imagine this photo looking more stunning.

    • kimmeister

      I find myself staring at her eyebrows.  I don’t think I’ve ever noticed them before in particular.  Maybe it’s because they’re particularly asymmetrical here?

    • twigg

      I don’t like the hair color on her, but everything else is great. I don’t know who’s luckier: her or or husband.

    • sk8tfan

      She reminds me of Marisa Berenson. Stunning.

    • Maya KC

      First glace I was blown away. Great face. Second glance I was sort of horrified. I know it’s not really that bad, but the way her hair is falling makes her look absolutely emaciated.

    • Little_Olive

      She is very beautiful and can rock so many different looks. I don’t know why so few people realize that -but then I also love that she is lo low key.

      I prefer her with darker hair, and her face looks a bit too elongated, but she is serving it up. 

      Anyone else saw Amber Valetta there for a second?

    • littlemac8

      Well, luckily, we don’t have to see too much of that Cavalli dress.  Ms Blunt looks gorgeous if a little angular for my taste but I love her and her funny little smile – not on display here…doesn’t go with a Bitchface!

    • Florence Whytingale

      LOVE that girl. Even with the power of bitchface she still emanates an incredible warmth. She’s the gal I want to be drinking martinis with. 

    • Myra C

      I LOVE HER. That is all.

    • guest2visits

      Yay – I’m always glad when she tries something different with her hair. She looks wonderful in this. The dress makes me think Uli.

    • Rin

      she’s forever emily from The Devil Wears Prada for me <3

    • Heather

      While the photo is stunning, I honestly think poor Emily looks Photoshopped beyond recognition. Her head looks huge on a barely there neck and a way, way, way too small frame. If she truly is that skinny, I’d be worried about her health!

    • GorgeousThings

      Sweet jesus – could they Photoshop her any more? Look at the curve of her back under her shoulder blades. Terrible job on one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood.

      That is one fierce-assed ring, though.

    • whitrome

      She won me over a long time ago, but she was positively dynamic in Looper. Love her.

    • PeaceBang

      She’s giving off some serious Lauren Bacall here. 

    • Tatiana Luján

      Is it just me or she is so skiny in that shot that her head looks big?

    • RzYoung

      I love her mouth! And her voice, I just love her. I could watch Devil Wears Prada over and over again

    • Liana Brooks

      That neck! All I see is a photoshop alien. 

    • Verascity

      Her eyes are lovely, but the ultra-thin Photoshopping needs to stop. It doesn’t help that the makeup also makes her look slightly consumptive.

    • neofashionista


    • nancylee61

      I love the dress – I think it looks gorgeous on her!! But she is unique in that she can pull off most of the clothes out there.

    • Kolo_Ol

      didn’t notice the accessories until you pointed them out :)

    • bringbackbeatles

      Stunning! Love the dress and the ring, and, of course her face is gorgeous as usual. Love the hair too!

    • LLuL

      I would LOVE to see the original photo. I don’t know why they needed to remove her shoulder and back, and the hair covering her neck has been Photoshopped so much, I doubt it was originally there. Heaven forbid she looks like she weighs more than 90lbs.
