Emily Blunt is Radiant at American Institute for Stuttering Gala!

Emily Blunt is gorgeous as she strikes a pose at the the American Institute for Stuttering’s 2017 Freeing Voices Changing Lives Benefit Gala held at Guastavino’s on Monday (June 26) in New York City.

The 34-year-old actress hosted the fundraising event honoring the inspiring accomplishments of people who stutter. The gala is the foundation’s primary fundraiser, allowing them to continue in their work and mission to provide universally affordable stuttering therapy.

Emily was joined by Freeing Voices Changing Lives awards recipient Wayne Brady.

“I think whatever you have to overcome in life ultimately paves the way [for whom you become as an adult]. I got teased a lot, and to this day, I hate unkindness in people and bullies,” Emily told InStyle back in November. “Names are always tricky because you can’t substitute a different word and there’s so much pressure attached to it. Even nowadays, when I’m tired or I feel put on the spot, I still sometimes struggle to get the words out. When I make a phone call”especially if I’m calling someone I don’t know”I have to mentally prepare myself. There’s always a big pause between when they ask ‘Who’s calling?’ and when I say ‘Emily Blunt.’”

FYI: Emily is wearing a Marc Bouwer dress, Sophia Webster shoes, earrings by Dana Rebecca Designs, and rings by Graziela Gems and EF Collection.
