Emily Blunt led the fashion pack at the 68th Annual Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday as she attended the photo call for her new movie, Sicario — a crime-drama film wherein she portrays the role of a police officer who travels across the border to Mexico to track down a drug lord. At the press conference, the 32-year-old actress also led criticism of the Cannes Film Festival after reports surfaced that women who were not in heels were barred from entering the screening of the lesbian romantic movie, Carol. “Yeah, that’s very disappointing,” she said. “Everyone should wear flats, to be honest. We shouldn’t wear high heels anyway, that’s my point of view. I prefer wearing Converse sneakers,” the English actress added.
At the event, Emily stunned in a colorful Peter Pilotto A/W 2015 frock featuring bold embroideries and silver studs and embellishments. It has a demure silhouette with long sleeves and a mid-length pencil skirt slashed to the thigh for an added daring touch. Wearing minimal accessories to let her dress shine, the Edge of Tomorrow star wore her short blonde hair down in loose waves and opted for a bright red lip shade.
