Emily Blunt joined Dakota Fanning at the Elie Saab Private Dinner in New York last night.
The British actress brightened up the room in a vibrant mustard yellow Elie Saab cocktail dress from the Spring 2012 collection.
Her crepe knee-length dress with a square neckline and three-quarter sleeves was cinched at the waist with a matching thin belt.
To accessorize the ladylike outfit, Emily carried a metallic clutch and opted for a pair of coordinating yellow Sergio Rossi sandals with crystal embellishments.
For a dramatic touch, she pulled back her hair in chic bun and added bright red lipstick.
