Emily Blunt has brought a bit of green to the red carpet by matching up her accessories at the première of her latest film.

The actress is the star of the romantic comedy the Five Year Engagement, which follows the period between the proposal and tying the knot.

The British star went for a classic look at the New York première of the film last night with her choice of strapless black prom dress, but brought some colour by adding green accessories.

With green leaves embroidered on her dress, Emily used the colour as the accent tone when adding green shoes and a pair of dangling earrings in a matching shade.

She also wore several sparkling silver bangles to her left wrist and rings to her right hand.

But the piece that was drawing the most attention was her beautiful diamond engagement ring, which had been given to her by her husband John Krasinski.
