Emily Blunt’s Oscar dress is beautiful but fans are very confused by one specific detail

Emily Blunt looked incredible as she stepped out in a sparkling cream Schiaparelli gown on the Oscar’s red carpet – but one detail is causing confusion amongst fans. 

The Academy Awards took place on Sunday, with famous faces from the film industry gathering to celebrate the films nominated for Oscars in 2024. Emily Blunt was among the A-listers at the event as she earned her first Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress in Oppenheimer. For the awards ceremony, the actress looked incredible as she wore a beautiful cream-coloured gown with a close-fitting corset and a stylish train.

The beaded gown featured floating shoulders and a detailed mid-section in silver sequins which complimented the diamond Tiffany&Co necklaces that decorated her decollatage. Speaking to Vanity Fair about the ensemble, Emily’s stylist Jessica Paster, revealed that the gown was one of three contenders and a final decision was reached on Sunday morning. 

“I think when you decide what you want to wear, I think something happens,” Jessica said. “It depends on your mood. One was colourful, one was diaphanous, one was white, and there was this little girl.”

The floating straps were a little unusual and confused some fans who weren’t keen on the avant-garde look.
