WHEN A STAR IS BORN:
In her scene-stealing turn in The Devil Wears Prada, Blunt’s withering glares and perfectly timed put-downs earned her a spot on movie-makers’ maps. She recently took on a more regal role as the lead role in The Young Victoria, which opened in the U.K. in February and is awaiting U.S. distribution. Two more Blunt films, Sunshine Cleaning and The Great Buck Howard, debuted in the U.S. in March.

THE DEVIL’S ASSISTANT WEARS PRADA, TOO:
Blunt has a classic take on style, which veers from unstudied casual looks to sleek eveningwear, often opting for dresses by Prada and Marchesa.
