Emily Blunt for YSL Opium

I like Emily Blunt, despite her having stolen lovely John Krasinski away from me. Liked her in The Devil Wears Prada (I liked the movie so much more than the book --  is that wrong?), Sunshine Cleaning, The Adjustment Bureau, and a cute film with Bill Nighy (I love him) called Wild Target. And she's in The Muppets -- as Vogue editor Miss Piggy's receptionist. (I really hope that movie doesn't suck. Please report back if you see it!)

Blunt is also the new face of Yves Saint Laurent Opium, the iconic fragrance first launched in 1977.

In the following clips, which include a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the first Opium commercial in about a decade (points for anyone who knows who directed the 1992 one -- yes, 20 years ago, because that's an interesting tidbit), the actress describes her weekend experience filming the ad, and answers that question: what does fragrance mean to you.

I love her makeup by YSL makeup artistic director (and Canadian) Lloyd Simmonds in the ad, and especially love it in the interviews. (I can especially love something, right? #grammar)

Here's the clip featuring scenes in the new YSL Opium perfume commercial starring Emily Blunt. More behind-the-scenes stills here.

What do you think? Are you a fan of Emily Blunt? Of Opium?
