Fans of The Devil Wears Prada love to hate Emily Blunt‘s neurotic, die-for-fashion character; but in real life, the self-deprecating star is far from high-strung when it comes to her personal style. “I never have any idea [about what I’m wearing],” she confesses to Harper’s Bazaar UK. “I’ll look at several things and make a choice. But I’m much more excited by fashion than I was before The Devil Wears Prada.” In fact, working with stylist and designer Patricia Field on that movie changed her perception: “I could finally see how artistic and an extension of someone’s personality fashion can be.” Emily graces the magazine’s January issue, resplendent in a blue fringed Tom Ford dress, among a host of 70s glamour-inspired outfits by Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent. No one would ever guess from the gorgeous multi-page spread that looking good didn’t always come naturally for the English beauty. “I used to look like a deer in headlights on the red carpet,” the straight-talking actress admits. “You step out of the car and it’s bedlam. Everyone’s got crazy eyes. Now, I have a martini before I leave – just to take the edge off it.” With two huge movies (Gulliver’s Travels and The Adjustment Bureau) to promote, we’re sure the newlywed will look radiant on the red carpet.

I think she is very stunning and classy. She is graceful and always amusing when she is interviewed. She looks amazing in these photos. Don’t let her personal life interfere with that fact. I love John Krasinski too, and as much as I wish I married him, he deserves such a great catch! :)

@ California and Lipstick, I totally agree with you both, “The Young Victoria” is one of my absolute favorite movies and Emily Blunt is stunning, the perfect person to play such a significant member of the British Monarch!!

Canada Girl, it doesn’t matter who ended the relationship and why, they have both moved on and are both clearly happy (I am a proud Canadian fyi)

Love Emily Blunt, such a beautiful classy woman.
@Jay very jelous she got John Krasinski first!! But I got another John that is pretty awesome too so I will live lol

Did anyone else find it amusing that this headline was printed in the same sidebar as “Brooke Mueller checking into a sober living facility”?

Actually, Canada Girl, Michael Buble cheated on her (like he’s done to his past three girlfriends). He’s a total ass, and he admitted it.
