Lately I have been coveting the style of actress Emma Stone. She always seems to nail red carpet dressing on the head, and her off-duty look is also always on the mark. Her look can be credited to stylist Petra Flannery. Ms. Stone favors red carpet dresses by Alexander McQueen, Calvin Klein, Lanvin, Pucci, and Valentino and shoes by Christian Louboutin and Brian Atwood. Here are a few of my favorite looks on the starlet.
In Lanvin at the 2012 Golden Globes.
I love the dark plum-y colour with her red hair. The gathered tulle is done so exquisitely, the gown seems to float over her body. I love the shoulder details and I would die for that eagle belt. DIE!
In Calvin Klein at the 2011 Golden Globes.
I definitely prefer her with red hair, but this peachy perfection of a gown perfectly compliments her blonde locks. I love the contrast of the soft-coloured gown with the silver clutch. The cutout in the back of the dress is a perfect finishing touch. This is minimalism done right.
In Elie Saab at the Spiderman premiere in London 2012 .
This is not a look that anyone with a large pair of girls can pull off. See? So, there are some pluses to being small-boobed. I love a good jumpsuit, and this is a great one. Minimal accessories and impeccable tailoring make this one a win in my books. I would totally wear this.
In Pucci at the 2010 MTV Music Video Awards.
This is how you wear leather in a non-bondage way. The simple shape of the LBD plays down the leather, as does her simple black pumps. I like that she added a touch of colour with her blue clutch.
In Pucci at the Easy A premiere in 2010.
I love a sequined dress, and this one is definitely not run-of-the-mill. I love the combination of blue and gold and the unique pattern. The neutral shoes are a perfect accompaniment to such an embellished dress.
In Lanvin at the 2010 BAFTAs.
I love how there is almost something casual about this gown. It is so effortless, and this shade of red is definitely Emma's colour.
In Giambattista Valli Couture at the 2012 Academy Awards.
I am sure that all you fashinoistas will note the similarity between this gown and the Balenciaga one worn by Nicole Kidman to the 2007 Oscars. It is a shame that all this look will incite is comparisons, because I think Ms. Stone looks amazing.
In Gucci at the Spiderman premiere in Paris 2012.
I must start by saying that I hate her lipstick. This particular shade of red is just too dark for a blonde, especially a blonde as pale as she is. It might have looked better when she had her red hair. However, I love love love her dress. She loves a belted gown, and she always looks great in them. I love the floral applique and the tulle layer. I just really wish she had gone for a slightly softer lip colour.
In Tom Ford at the Crazy, Stupid, Love Premiere.
It takes a real fashionista to pull off those crazy pointed hips. Of course, being tall and think helps, too. See? The dark red lip totally works better with the dark red hair. I love the beautiful lace of this dress, and the length is perfect. I also really like how she styled her hair.
So, which Emma Stone look is your favorite?
