Oppenheimer star Emily Blunt took a minty fresh retro approach to her red carpet style at the Paris premiere. Not to brag, but that is an absolutely perfect description. Here. We’ll prove it:
That is pure 1940s style rendered in a toothpaste color. Are we right or are we right? We’ll just be over here once again noting that blockbuster or prestige film premiere red carpets continue to trend toward a cosplay approach, something that the Barbie promo tour practically codified on stone tablets at this point. We’re not complaining, really. The style here is somewhat close to literal 1940s, but only if you’re looking at the silhouette and the lacquered hairstyle. That collar and the interesting pleating in the bodice take it in more modern and interesting directions. We can’t say we love the color, but it doesn’t look bad on her. That satin is unforgiving as hell but she did a wonderful job of keeping it fairly wrinkle-free. We love the shoe choice, which gives exactly the right amount of impact. It’s an interesting, high-impact look situated rather high on the fashion difficulty setting. We may have quibbles, but overall, we really like this.
