Emily Blunt stunned at last night's Harper's Bazaar Women of the Year Awards as she picked up the Best British Actor gong.

The Five Year Engagement star wore an orange column gown by Alexander McQueen for the awards, which featured a sparkly halterneck.

She wore her hair scraped back to draw attention to the neckline, while keeping her makeup simple and pretty, with lightly contoured cheekbones and copper eyeshadow.

Also in attendance at the awards was Marion Cotillard who was honoured with the International Actor of the year award.

The French actress wore a black strapless dress which had a tulle skirt and asymmetric hemline.

The awards, which celebrated inspiring female figures who have made a mark in 2012, were hosted by British comedian David Walliams.
