Red Carpet Re-Do: Emily Blunt's Layered Dress Look

January 29, 2010 by Marisa Siegel
shefinds | Style

All too often celebs take what could have been a fabulous red carpet ensemble, and turn it into a fashion nightmare.  With Red Carpet Re-do we take stars’ style slip-ups and show you  how to make it work better. Emily Blunt has proven her acting and style chops in movies like Devil Wears Prada, but we can think of more then one fashion editor who would turn up their nose at this overly styled outfit.  We’ve laid out where Emily went wrong and how to save this wrap dress from making it onto the worst dressed lists again.

What She Did Wrong:

  • Shirt or dress, with a wrap dress you don’t need both
  • One brooch on each strap makes her look wider than she actually is
  • An all black dress plus all black tights is too much of the same
  • Above the ankle booties with a short dress cut down the length of your legs making them appear shorter than they really are

What She Should Have Done:

  • Lose the undershirt and let the wrap dress do all the talking
  • Wear just one brooch down by the knot of the dress,  this draws the eyes down to the smallest part of the waist
  • Choose a brightly colored brooch to add some pizzaz
  • Accessorize with bangles that add an element of playfulness
  • Try nude tights instead of black opaque ones
  • Go for sky high pumps with subtle detailing or color flatter your legs and add an exciting edge

Here’s how we would rock this look:

Athleta, $49.50

Newport News, $19

Ashley Cooper, $11.99

Stuart Weitzman, $169.05
