In or Out: Emma Stone in Chanel

Posted on November 16, 2011

We have such a love-hate relationship with Emma and her style choices. Sometimes she nails it (but not enough), sometimes she looks like she couldn’t care less, and sometimes she looks like she’s trying, but falling short of the fabulous mark. We don’t know where this one falls on that scale.

Emma Stone in Chanel Couture

It’s a really fantastic dress and it looks great on her, but what do we all think of her hair? We want to like it – we think we do like it, maybe – but we were taken aback when we first saw it. This can be a fun ‘do, but we’re not sure if it suits her that much. Plus, a pretty redhead sporting a bouffant can’t help but be compared to Kate Pierson of the B-52s. We can’t not see that. Still, that’s not to say a pretty redhead can’t rock the puffy hair if she wants to. But does it suit Emma? Does it suit this dress? We’re asking.

IN! She’s young! It’s elegant and fun! Lighten up!

OUT! Priscilla Presley hair and Chanel Couture should not be mentioned in the same lifetime.

Voting on Blake Lively’s equally challenging Chanel is still open, darlings.

      This is an In for me. I love the whole thing, except maybe the shoes. I think strappier shoe would have been nice.

      I actually think this looks better on Stone than on the model. The hair is very cool with the dress. It is understated but still makes a statement without competing with the print and pleating on the dress.

        I agree.  In.  But I would add the bag in with the shoes as a potential question mark.  But neither is enough to ruin the overall look.

          I kinda like the shoes, but the dress is screaming for something more fun. Something pink, maybe?

        • Anonymous

          hmmmm…didn’t even notice the bag, that’s how hard it is to see beyond the backdrop.

          IN. Agree that this dress looks better on ES than on the model, looks like it might have been modified to not be as hip-intensive. Eh, for the hair but as noted, it is sleek and that werqs with the dress.

        Busy dress on a busy background does make it hard to see. I bet it smelled lovely though. :)

      She looks great! The dress looks better on Emma than on the model. And I actually like the hair because it’s a little modern (Though I didn’t think of Kate Pierson until you guys mentioned her. Thanks a lot.).

      IMO it should be fussy hair OR fussy dress. Having both seems aging.
      (Also the red rose backdrop helps nothing and adds yet more visual noise. Poor choice, event planners!)

      Out. The combination of the dress’s hip-bumpers and the poofy hair makes her look like she’s tottering in Mommy’s clothes.

    • Sobaika Mirza

      I dig this so much. The hair makes it, for me.

    • Jasmine

      I kind of love the hair, especially since Emma seems like she has fun with her hairstyles and likes mixing it up a bit.  A bouffant is just fun, and she’s so pretty and lively that she can wear it without it making her look old and tired. In!

    • Kathrine Marlow

      I think she looks great, even the hair.  I have a small issue with the shoe, something more fabulous is in order.  IN

    • Stefanos Mantyla

      This feels like an OUT. Do not like the hair, and the dress just does not turn me on, either. At least in photos, it looks rather stiff and, when combined with its shininess, cheap, which I know Chanel is absolutely NOT.

      If Michelle Obama wore this, she’d use a black belt and look better than the model.

        Well, I’m biased, but asking anyone to compete with Michelle is hardly fair. She’s sui generis!

      Your last two questions, TLo:  YES and YES.

      She looks beautiful and her hair looks better with that dress than the dorky Michael’s Craft Store thingies on the model’s head.

      Honestly, I think the issue is the backdrop; it makes it difficult to see her hair and the proportions. But based on what I can see, it’s pretty and it works.

    • MilaXX

      First impression before I read you comment was I like the hair and makeup. Sure it leans towards B-52 territory, but as a one off it works.

      IN!  Though I may have been distracted by those beautiful roses behind Ms Stone.

    • Katie Dunneback

      I’m going to give her a tepid IN because the dress is gorgeous and I think the hairstyle works more than it doesn’t.  I think she’d have nailed if she’d A. done a sleeker bouffant without the side bits falling free and B. not stood against those roses as a backdrop as her hair actually fades into them a bit.

    • Anonymous

      I love the black and white graphic print of the dress against the red rose backdrop!  I assume that was just a happy accident.  IN!

      IN. Love the hair, the strands down modernize it a little, besides, isn’t this the anti-spaniel do? The shoes are a little boring, but they still work. The dress itself looks better on her than the runway, but that is because she has toned down some of the outrageous parts, but the runway is the place to show those off.

      Hard for me to focus on the dress and hair with all of those roses!  But it is an interesting dress–IN.  The hair–not an out but I don’t think it goes with the look, since the hair is retro but the dress isn’t.  Then again, f you saw my hair and clothes at this moment you would laugh that I could even think of judging someone else!

      I know it’s heresy to not like Chanel couture, but I think the gown is bordering on ugly. Busy pattern, fussy gatherings in awkward spots, unflattering silhouette on the hips. 

      But other than the dress, I think she looks good. I really like her hair. Nothing wrong with a good Kate Pierson homage.

    • Linde Hoff

      I’m on the fence…the rosebush backdrop wasn’t helpful at all (not her fault), so the hair got lost in it.  The dress is odd in the hips, and I’m not thinking it’s right for her.  I liked the model’s hair much better and wish something could’ve been added to her red hair in a similar fashion.  It would have popped and been a nice accessory.

    • Anonymous

      i like the hair and makeup without question.  she’s had trouble finding off-the-face styles that suit her, and i like this one as an occasional option.  my issue is with the length of the dress.  i wish she’d have hemmed it just below the knee, nixing that split and the odd length.  other than that, she is IN.

      also, whomever decided that the step and repeat should be roses is also IN:  genius.

      I’m torn – I like the dress, she looks nice, but I also thought the hair made her look much older than she is and dated.  I didn’t see Pricilla Presley, more like Grace Kelly or Tippi Hendren.  Do 20 somethings want to be that retro?  It isn’t even that the hairdo is that retro, more that it isn’t her hairstyle?  It makes her forehead so prominent in that first pic.  I’m going to go with an In because I don’t think she looks bad, but she could look better.

      But, oddly enough, I think she’s wearing it well. For what it is (in an eye-assaulting print), she’s doing it justice, and the styling (yes, the bouffant) works well.

      PLUS, she’s not falling into her usual sheer lip / wash of eyeshadow makeup. I never thought the eyeshadow almost to her brow suited her.

      And I mean, the B-52s were an entire generation before her (I’m a little older than her and I barely know them, and definitely didn’t think of them when I saw this). I think she’s pulling it off all on her own.

      In!  Its really flattering, and the use of the print is interesting.  Shoes and bag are a bit boring, but appropriate.  I like the hair, my only quibble are the tendrils; it would have been better clean and all up.

    • CQAussie

      That hair, it’s awful.  That Chanel dress sadly looks weird too….lovely on top and yet crazy split skirt on the bottom and….with pockets?  No.  OUT.

    • R. L.

      I think she’s IN but not overwhelmingly so.  The shoes and bag kind of fade into the background.  I think I like the model’s shoes better but I like the way E.S. wears the dress better.

      Against the background of the roses, she looks amazing.  Really stunning.  IN.

      IN! I dont like her hair but everything else looks good.

      From the neck up, she and Blake Lively ( went the same route with the hair, and IMHO, Emma pulls it off way better. It’s sleek and classy, but with a pinch of sass and a wink. She can pull of hairstyles that look dated on other ladies, I think because she’s got so much personality. 

    • Gabrielle Levy

      A total IN. 

      From the neck up, she and Ms. Lively went similar routes, but IMO Emma does it better. She’s got enough personality to pull off hairstyles that could read as dated on other ladies, and make them werq for her. Love the dress, too.

      In.  She looks really good, not spectacular, but really good.  I love that shade of red.

      i’m afraid she’s out.  she needs a belt or something to break up all that whirling black and white, and the “corsage” thing on her left shoulder (right side of photo) looks like it’s growing and will soon take over the world.  she should have done more with the shoes and the purse is so forgettable i had to go back and seek it out. with such a high forehead, that hairdo is making her look like an alien with a giant brain.  it’s a shame, because you know i love me some redheads.

      I’m the polar opposite to TLo in that I think the dress is hideous but I love the hair. Even though I think the dress is ugly, she overcomes it and looks good overall. In.

      I think the dress is wonderful.  In front of that backdrop – it looks busy as hell.  (Why do events keep doing this “Hollywood goes to a garden party” thing?)  But imagine how great she looked walking around the party?  I think she even makes the dress look better than it did on the model (less going on around the hips).  Hair was a perfect choice.

      She’s IN! (And I can’t even remember who she is.)

      IN. She looks very good. The hair is fine by me. I would like to see a slightly more dramatic lip color.

      IN. Love the hair and she’s one of the few people that I think can pull off a black and white look like that. My only problem is with that insane shoulder detail.

      the hair is good, at the very least for going there. But the dress does seem wrong for it somehow … good for her for not going too literal, but something about it seems off.

      Still, IN.

      In. And I like the hair. You can’t have busy hair with such a busy dress. I think she looks great!

      In. Love the pattern and the dress fits her pretty well. Her makeup is fresh and pretty, so it’s too bad her hair is just meh. But I think the dress and makeup make this a solid In for me.

    • Stan

      Love it!

    • Erin Nice

      I love this. I’m very happy to see a young celebrity with her hair actually done, as opposed to the dreaded “messy bun” or cocker spaniel waves.

      She’s a beauuuutiful girl, so why the distraction of wearing a Rorschach test?

      I love the dress so much, I say in. I think the dress called for an updo, but NOT that beehive.

      In, but would def change that hair.

      It’s not the hair, that’s not a fabulous dress. It fits her oddly around the hips.  Perhaps because on the tiny model the hips look like shelves, which is what the designer wanted (?).  Because Emma is not the same degree of tiny, the fabric ends up looking bulky and pulls oddly.  it’s not a fabulous dress on the model, and it’s a terrible dress on a human.  Out (sorry, Emma, I still love you.)

      IN! Love the dress and for some reason I really don’t hate the beehive hair. Strange… Maybe it’s the lovely Wall O’ roses warping my vision.

    • andy

      “falling short of the fabulous mark”, falling short being the operative words here. The dress is calf length on the model, and floor length on Emma. Hence, the odd fit and off proportions. “Couture” my ass. That should fit better than her skin. Since it doesn’t, OUT.

    • Pam Winters

      Love the dress on her, but not the hair. Something looser (though not bedhead) would work better, I think.

    • Jessica

      In. It’s not my favorite hairstyle, but it could be much worse. Very pretty dress.

      Out sadly. She wounds me because she’s so pretty and awesome, yet her RC choices are so terrible most of the time.

      It’s funny. I was scrolling along thinking, “I like that dress. What the hell’s up with her hair? Why don’t T & Lo like the dress? Oh, it’s her hair.” Yeah, love the dress, hate the hair. I give her an In though because she looks really great in the dress.

      IN.  The hair works.  Perhaps more prominent earrrings might have punched it up.  Shoes are a smidge office-y looking and the bag is expected; color would have been nice.  These things are nits though.  Overall, lovely.

      Ooh, that’s some bad bridesmaid hair. Not many can rock the Kate Pierson bouffant successfully. Well, other than Kate. Love the dress, but I’d nix the corsage-y appendage. Out.
