Cover Loving: Emily Blunt In Prada For Citizen K

I do love a cinematic cover and editorial spread and this one from Citizen K’s autumn issue featuring Emily Blunt is one of the best I have seen for a while, I just adore her disturbed housewife role.

Shot by Gavin Bond, Emily Blunt looks amazing, very prim and proper, I love the matching ruby-red lips and nails, and it is all pulled together nicely with an added stiffness and a cold stare that you would expect from a Stepford wife – seriously cool shoot.

The cover sets the scene perfectly, Emily looks striking in an incredible Prada look styled by Penny Lovell – that beaded crop top is divine. Throughout the editorial I love the contrast of the glamorous styling featuring red carpet worthy gowns from the likes of Roberto Cavalli against the housewife tasks, you see Emily beheading a rose, cleaning the pool, feeding the dog, and even finding the time to catch a few rays between chores – the story telling is perfection.

I do love it when magazines take their cover shoots to a whole new level and this is one of my favourites this year. Do you rate Emily Blunt as a Stepford wife?
