Emily Blunt 'fantastic' fashion fan

Emily Blunt created a "fantastic" vibe for the wardrobe team on the set of her newest film as she loves fashion "so much".

The actress plays Violet Barnes in The Five-Year Engagement, which also stars Jason Segel and Alison Brie. The film's costume designer Leesa Evans says the British beauty was a joy to work with because of her enthusiasm for clothes.

"It was fantastic," she gushed to People. "And what made it so fun was the fact that Emily and Alison both love fashion so much, too."

In the film, Emily and Alison play sisters Violet and Suzie. Both characters have very different styles, which made picking out opposite ensembles fun.

"Leesa really wanted to create something very singular for Violet," Emily explained. "She likes vintage shops doesn't have that much money. [She wore] stuff she found in a thrift store that she'd tailor and alter.

"[Brie] had a lot of great fashion moments. It was a lot of accessories bright leggings. I feel like every outfit I was in we had some crazy tights happening."

Leesa pulled looks from designers including Chloé and Stella McCartney for Emily, and Sonia Rykiel and Vanessa Bruno for Alison.

The clothes expert had a great time putting the ensembles together with the actresses.

"Sometimes when you start trying things on, something stands out as so perfect and so special," she explained. "And we all start to have so much excitement about having created this person we feel is real."
