  • Emily Blunt talked about her first red-carpet outfit in a recent interview with W Magazine.
  • It’s safe to say she isn’t a huge fan of the look.
  • She described her appearance as “far too tanned,” “sweaty,” and “horrible.”
  • Blunt’s fashion has certainly evolved since then.

Emily Blunt has become quite a style icon in recent years, but the “Mary Poppins Returns” star isn’t a huge fan of her earlier looks.

W Magazine recently interviewed the actress for its first issue of 2019, and she shared her thoughts on her first-ever red carpet appearance.

“It was for ‘My Summer of Love,’ and I was far too tanned,” she told W Magazine’s Lynn Hirschberg. “I was wearing a very bright yellow dress. I always laugh at how sweaty I looked. Horrible.”

Blunt wore the cheery yellow dress to the opening of the Sydney Film Festival in June 2005. She paired it with strappy teal pumps for an extra pop of colour.

While not necessarily “horrible,” it’s certainly simpler than the elegant gowns she’s become known for.

Her distaste for this particular outfit doesn’t mean she’s shied away from yellow hues as her fashion sense has evolved. She wore the colour during the Dubai International Film Festival in December 2014 with a Zuhair Murad design that is more indicative of her current red-carpet style.

Her recent Yanina Couture gown for the premiere of “Mary Poppins Returns” in November 2018 further proves her style evolution from breezy dresses to extravagant, billowing gowns.
