Photographed by the famous Annie Leibovitz, Blunt is perfectly captured as Mary Poppins floating in the sky holding on to her umbrella.
Of course, she does this in the most high-fashion way possible wearing a head-to-toe red ensemble all by Dior (it IS VOGUE after all).
Having undertaken the famous Mary Poppins role in Disney’s remake of the classic film, she not only pays homage to her well-loved character in the pages of a fashion magazine, but also tells the magazine of her character “She’s a superhero,” she adds ““You could say she’s some sort of angel. She recognizes what people need, and she gives it to them, yet they discover something about themselves in the process.”
VOGUE posted the below image on their Instagram account with the caption: “For most of us, Mary Poppins has always been Julie Andrews, who made her screen debut in the 1964 original, winning an Oscar in the process. That film remains a canonical piece of American popular art, visually extravagant and full of unforgettable songs by the brothers Richard and Robert Sherman. It’s a hell of a legacy to contend with—but our December cover star #EmilyBluntalongside #LinManuelMiranda are up for the job. Tap the link in our bio to read our full December cover story.

We can’t think of anyone more delightful and therefore perfectly fitting to play this role!
