Emily attended the Christian Dior Presentation at the Paris Fashion Week earlier today, here are some photos. I’ve also added pictures from two events we were missing, Audi Polo Challenge and the 9th Annual American Institute For Stuttering Benefit Gala.
In Mexico, SICARIO means hitman. In the lawless border area stretching between the U.S. and Mexico, an idealistic FBI agent (Emily Blunt) is enlisted by an elite government task force official (Josh Brolin) to aid in the escalating war against drugs. Led by an enigmatic consultant with a questionable past (Benicio Del Toro), the team sets out on a clandestine journey forcing Kate to question everything that she believes in order to survive.
Sicario also stars Josh Brolin, Benecio Del Toro, Victor Garber, and Jon Bernthal. It hits theaters on September 18, 2015
The book is really good and I hope Emily gets the part!
