Emily Blunt landed herself one of fashions hottest campaigns, and she’s incredibly humble about the honor.
When she was recently asked why she was chosen as the face of YSL’s Opium fragrance, Blunt told The Telegraph:
‘I don’t know. I’ve no idea,’ she says, wheezing with laughter. ‘There was no one else? They made a mistake, a terrible mistake.’
She says she suggested wearing a dress in the advert rather than the classic Yves Saint Laurent tux. ‘But I got word back, ’ she continues in a perfect French accent, ‘that the leopard trainer says, “If you have flowing fabric around the leopard the leopard will go crazy .” So I said yes to the tux. ’
The ad, which you can watch above, is interesting to me. I think that Emily is very beautiful, don’t get me wrong. But she’s a comedy actress, so it’s hard to see her being seductive. I kept waiting for her to do a flip – and make me laugh…. or something. It looks like it’s on the verge of being something funny (to me).
