Style Icon of the month April – Emily Blunt

My choice for style icon for the month of April was a no-brainer. At a host of film premieres, and the Tribeca film festival, Emily Blunt just stood out from the sea of bodycon, micro-minied lovelies in a style that is almost a cross between that of Kate Middleton and Grace Kelly. With an exquisite collection of ladylike, calf length shift and prom style dresses.

Unlike Kate Middleton though, Emily knows her designers. From red lace from Michael Kors, to my favourite, the wonderful yellow dress from Elie Saab, Emily has worn clothes with serious designer credentials. These are clothes that flatter her figure and body shape, whilst showing her stunning, natural beauty to its best advantage.

Here are Emily’s standout looks from April, with some ideas on how to get a similar look.

Tribeca Film Festival – All the best looks

This weekend saw the 10th annual Tribeca Film Festival, with a very starry line up in attendance. Emma Watson, Michelle Williams, Emily Blunt and Helena Christensen were amongst the celebrity line-up who were bringing some real glamour to the proceedings. There were lots of outfits that I was lusting after, so I have found it quite hard to choose my favourites, but here they are, with some ideas on how to get the look for yourself.

Helena Christensen defied age in a strikingly simple, but eye-catchingly pretty Marc by Marc Jacobs dress. This is just the perfect white summer dress that every wardrobe should have. All it needed was a glowing tan as an accessory.

MARC by Marc Jacobs Palmetto Eyelet Dress, $458 

Phase Eight Maria cotton dress 

Flounced Bustier Dress with Detachable Shoestring Straps £35 

Emma Watson looked gloriously quirky in Miu Miu mismatched prints at the Struck By Lightning premiere. I loved the fresh youthfulness of this outfit, given an added edge with the cropped leather jacket. The pink purse was also a great touch.

MIU MIU Peplum leather jacket £1,930.00 

Urban Code Leather Peplum Biker Jacket 

Evans Fan Print Blouse Price: £19.50 

Mantaray £35.00 Blue swallow print skirt 

Oasis Floral Skirt, Multi £40

 Camilla Belle was her usual impeccable self, with all eyes on that wonderful bag. Tan is the perfect shade to accompany white, and tan leather is always a winner.

Nikita FIT AND FLARE DRESS CREAM £169 

Tan large croc flap tote Price: £35.00 

Brown flapover shoulder tote Price: £65.00 

Michelle Williams looked really gorgeous in her Giambattista Valli 1920s style dress. This merged  fabrics, patterns and textures to great effect,  and the colours really suited Michelle’s porcelain skin.

ILVA – Printed dress – £159

CHORA – Floral printed dress – £139 

This is my absolute favourite dress of the last month. Emily Blunt again adopted green to dazzling effect in this beautiful prom style gown at the premiere of ‘The Five Year Engagement’.
