“Be careful what you wish for.. What happens after happily ever after?”

 

Emily Blunt, who plays The Baker’s Wife in the upcoming film Into the Woods, stars as her own favorite fairy tale characters in a new shoot for Violet Grey magazine.

SHE IS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING IN THIS GORGEOUS SHOOT!

She is fast becoming one of my favorite actresses… can you believe how far she’s come since Devil Wears Prada 😀

The 31-year-old English actress channels Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, and Cinderella – also the film’s three main heroines – for the fashion spread, which was shot at New York’s famed Carlyle Hotel.

‘The message [of the film, Into the Woods] is very much be careful of what you wish for, and it also begs the question, what happens after happily ever after? I just wanted to play with those ideas a bit more,’ explained the actress, who directed the shoot herself.

The 31-year-old English actress channels Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, and Cinderella – also the film’s three main heroines – for the fashion spread, which was shot at New York’s famed Carlyle Hotel.

Ms Blunt, who gave birth to her first child in February this year, is the third actress (alongside Rosie Huntington-Whitely and Eva Mendes) to direct her own shoot for Violet Grey.

‘It was hugely appealing to me to have that much input,’ she said.

‘Usually, as an actress, you show up and they say this is what the look is and this is the character that we want you to be. And that’s always fun but the fact that I got to have a say in the story was really exciting.’t

Using Into the Woods as her inspiration, Ms Blunt said she wanted to avoid portraying ‘one-dimensional fairy tale characters’.

'The message [of the film, Into the Woods]  begs the question, what happens after happily ever after? I just wanted to play with those ideas a bit more,' explained the actress, who directed the shoot herself

‘They are modern women who are powerful and complicated,’ she said.

Based on Lapine and Stephen Sondheim’s Tony Award–winning Broadway musical of the same name, Into the Woods follows a witch (played by Meryl Streep) who conspires to teach important lessons to various characters of popular children’s stories including Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella (played by Anna Kendrick), Jack and the Beanstalk and Rapunzel.

When The Baker and his Wife (Ms Blunt) learn they have been cursed by the Witch, they embark into the woods break the spell and begin a family.

Ms Blunt welcomed her first child, daughter Hazel, with husband John Krasinski in February, almost four years after they tied the knot in July 2010 in Italy.

The star said that she plans to read Cinderella to Hazel, despite the ‘grizzly’ bits.

‘The Brothers Grimm version has some grisly moments, like the part where the stepsister cuts off her heel to fit in the glass slipper. But maybe if I read it in a happy voice, she’ll just be like, “Everything’s fine!”‘

What a stunning shoot! It reminds me of one of my first photo-shoots I created while studying photography at school.. I had a theme which was about glamour and a fairytale heroin in unfamiliar places.. like a big ball gown dressed princess in a public toilet, using a metro bus and walking in a dark alleyway.

Can’t wait for this film! Not long to go!
