When the CFDA Fashion Awards return as an in-person event on November 10, they will do so with a very glamorous new host: Emily Blunt. The British actress, famous for roles like Mary Poppins (quite stylish in that red coat), A Quiet Place (more scary than stylish), and The Devil Wears Prada (stylish in a scary way!), will emcee the evening inside The Pool Room and Grill.
CFDA Chairman Tom Ford wrote in a release: “Emily is one of the most talented actresses in the world. Her timeless style and elegance light up any room. The wonderful thing about Emily is that she is both kind and intelligent. I have great admiration for her, and I am so happy to have her as the host of this year’s CFDA awards.”
Blunt follows in the footsteps of previous CFDA Fashion Awards hosts Tracee Ellis Ross, Issa Rae, Seth Meyers, and James Corden, among others. As for what the actress might wear for fashion’s biggest night, we’d anticipate a few costume changes throughout the evening.
