I always like to read posts where people tell about the source of their inspiration. Last month I wrote about Catherine Deneuve in Belle de Jour and this month I want to post some photos of Emily Blunt. If you follow me on twitter you’ve probably noticed the new background. And yes, that is Emily from Vanity Fair magazine. I have to say that I absolutely adore her! She is so beautiful, elegant and always looks perfect! I have a lot of photos of her so it was hard for me to chose only some of them.
Emily Olivia Leah Blunt (born 23 February 1983) is an English actress known for her work in My Summer of Love, The Young Victoria and The Devil Wears Prada. She won the 2007 Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Miniseries or Television Film for the BBC TV film Gideon’s Daughter. Blunt stars alongside notable actors such as Anthony Hopkins and Benicio del Toro in The Wolfman. Read more here
