Emily Blunt’s friend was quick to tell her she’d been snapped wearing an old pair of sweatpants.

Emily Blunt nearly ran out of clothes to wear during her second pregnancy.

The British actress and her husband, The Office star John Krasinski, welcomed baby girl Violet in June (16), a sister to two-year-old Hazel.

Prior to Violet’s arrival, Emily was snapped at a farmers market wearing a pair of bright purple trousers – a unique ensemble which caught the attention of waiting photographers.

“I was wearing these bright purple harem pants that were stretchy,” Emily recalled to Britain’s Vogue magazine. “And my friend, who likes to inform me on these things, sent me the links to the article which said, ‘Emily Blunt, slumming it, wearing the same pair of purple sweatpants two days in a row. She must be running out of things to wear’. I was like, ‘No s**t! Yes! I am!”

For her cover shoot with the fashion glossy, Emily stuns in designs by Isabel Marant, Fendi and Coach. Despite the high-end wardrobe choices, Emily was chosen to front the Real Issue of Vogue, though she joked it took her ages to look as natural as she does in the photos.

“It took three hours of hair and make-up to get me looking this real. Earlier I started to lactate on these designer clothes and I was like, ‘I need a pump!’” she giggled.

The outfits she models in the pages of Vogue are typical of her usual style, with The Devil Wears Prada star favouring structured designs over floaty, feminine dresses.

“For the red carpet, I like form fitting clothes,” she previously told U.S. InStyle magazine. “I’m not so good with the sort of ethereal, girlie, whimsical things. I tend to go for dresses that have bold cuts and strong colours.”
