Emily Blunt’s SAG Awards dress is getting ridiculed and it’s not cool

Emily Blunt won a SAG Award last night, and thanked her husband and director John Krasinski in the most beautiful way. But none of that matters apparently, because – stop press – she wore a dress that looks like a vagina.

The, let’s reiterate the point here, award-winning actress walked the red carpet in a baby pink custom Michael Kors sequin dress. It featured a giant ruffle around the shoulders, which reminded a lot of people on Twitter of a labia.

Cue Twitter memes galore, as you can see below.

Now I don’t mind a bit of banter, I really don’t. However, given the mammoth battle against sexist reporting, with actresses wanting to be asked a little more than who they’re wearing (#askhermore), and of course the more recent #metoo movement, it just doesn’t seem right to me that poor Emily Blunt be reduced to a walking vagina.

God forbid she be remembered instead for the award she won. Or the heartwarming love she showed for her husband and her daughters.

And don’t get me started on the fact she was ranked amongst the worst-dressed actresses on the night (funny we don’t rank their male counterparts here).

Whether an outfit is to your taste or not is bloody irrelevant.
