Oscars 2018 Style File: Emily Blunt Went to Extremes in Schiaparelli Couture and Alexander McQueen

Posted on March 06, 2018


We figure her unusually strong style showing had something to do with keeping her profile high (on a Disney-owned network) the night the Mary Poppins Returns teaser dropped. In which case, well done, Miss Emily. Not only did you keep your profile high by choosing these high-impact gowns, you managed to play in two sandboxes at the same night: romanticism and glamour. Perfect for what you’re selling at the moment.

People on the twitters thought we were nuts when we praised this dress in real time, but our opinions haven’t changed much. We get the argument that it’s a bit too much and that at least one element (the high collar, shoulder treatment or applique) could have been toned down for a more fiercely fashionable look, but we think this is a great way to do a couture take on the Disney aesthetic. We strongly suspect we’ll be seeing a lot of this side of Emily on the MPR promo tour.

That shade of blue is lovely on her. Not convinced on the earrings, unforch.

For the after-party (and off the Disney network), she opted to remind everyone that while she may be Mary Poppins, she’s also a drop-dead chic movie star:

We question nude linings on mostly sheer dresses because it places the wearer in this weird bodyless state. We love this look, but it would’ve been so much better if the lining was black.

LOVE these earrings.
