Emma Stone in Carven

Posted on June 26, 2012

Good morning. Attached please find your Recommended Daily Allowance of Stone. Failing to consume your RDA of Stone will cause dropsy, rickets, and miner’s cough, rendering you pretty much unlovable.

Just look at the pictures, okay?


Emma Stone lights The Empire State Building in New York City in a Carven dress paired with Christian Louboutin nude ‘Pigalle’ pumps and Dalla Nonna Jewelry.

Tottering around in 4-inch heels and at least an hour’s worth of hair and makeup; surrounded by male co-stars in jeans and sneakers. Such is the way of the red carpet.

It’s like Little Orphan Annie grew up and got a job in an office. It’s cute, though. And it suits her. That weird drape in the front is distracting, but we suppose the dress would be too boring without it. She needs to stop wearing that same pair of shoes; not because they’re the same pair of shoes, but because they’re at least a size too large for her. We hope her stylist packed some Band-aids for her feet.

And we’re sorry, but her makeup has looked incredibly odd and unflattering throughout this press tour. Her eyes always look swollen, like she’s been crying. Then again, we’d be crying constantly if we were tottering around in 4-inch heels a size too large for us every day for the last two weeks.

    The makeup may be hiding puffy eyes from allergies.

    • PinkLemon

       i feel like her eyes are just really heavy-hooded….?

      • TieDye64

        Yeah, that’s what I’m thinking. 

  • The dress is stupid and the shoes are giving her Barbie feet.

    Sorry, it’s too early to be nice. Although I don’t think I could if I tried. This outfit is bad.

    • Barbie feet.  Brilliant.

    • RzYoung

      Yep that’s how I feel today too! 

    • kikisayshi

       She DOES have Barbie feet! I wonder if her feet are small, which would explain the always-too-big shoes and the “Barbie feet”. I wear a size 6 and not sure I could stand upright in a pair of 4-inch heels. Poor thing. 

      • I wear a size 4 and have a couple of pairs of 6-inch heels. It’s definitely a more pronounced angle than for women who wear a larger size, but as long as the shoe is well-made and fits properly they’re not a problem to walk in. It is just incredibly strange that she keeps wearing these shoes that are at least a size too big for her.

        I like the dress and think the color is beautiful, but the swoopy detail at the waist doesn’t translate well to ‘real-life’ wear. It looks like she’s got her dress twisted up. A pair of kitten heels would both be really cute with the dress and make her look a little bit more casual next to her jeans-wearing co-stars.

  • j_anson

    Love the color, but can’t say I’m on board with the collar. I’m surprised she can even walk in those shoes. I couldn’t.

    • E_bee

      Seriously! Every time I see these I wonder how she manages it. I have a pair of heels I realized too late were half a size too big, and they are unwearable. I can’t get from my bedroom to the front door. Are they glued to her feet or something?

      • j_anson

        Hah! You know, sticky inserts for troublesome shoes does seem like something Hollywood WOULD have, but I’ve never actually heard of such a thing before. Maybe the stars have their secrets. 🙂

    • introspective

      hell, im not on board with the collar, weird stomach drape or fit. she looks like she’s swimming in the dress. and with the too big shoes, she just seems like a little girl playing dress up. not feeling it.

  • Judy_S

    The shoes, the shoes. Love the dress, the makeup I have gotten used to, but the too big shoes. 

  • MilaXX

    I like the dress, funny twist included, but I don’t think I like it on her and I REALLY hate those shoes. Her hair and makeup look okay.

  • altalinda

    No to the clerical garb.

  • SapphoPoet

    I like the color of the dress, but not that swath of fabric in front. And if the shoes don’t fit, why is she wearing them? I find this baffling. All I can think of is how it must sound when she walks: flap, flap, flap.

  • terilla

    I don’t understand, how she is even able to walk in those shoes. How comes they don’t just fall of her feet?
    I really like the dress, though.

  • Larkin21

    Hm, I wanted to like this one but it just looks sloppy. Something about the way the dress fits across the shoulders … makes the wearer look like their posture is bad. Even in the over the shoulder look. It’s strange.

    • Lori

      I noticed the posture problem too. I think it’s even more of a problem on the model than on Emma, but they both look like they’re slouching in an odd way.

      • Larkin21

        I agree. I think the model’s slouch is intentional and more obvious but it also looks like the seam is resting forward on the shoulder so maybe that’s why Emma’s posture seems worse too.

  • She’s on Live! right now, looking much better than here.

  • NurseEllen

    The dress color is great and I don’t even mind the shoes because I’m used to them by now, but that collar is way too Catholic School Uniform.  I do like the pop of red with the jewelry.

    • Magatha

       Yes, the color is fabulous. Makes me want to grab a pair of scissors and attack that white collar. This is a dress on the edge of gorgeous, but a few of the details, like the collar and the awkward draping, keep it from getting there.

    • poggi

      I just had a school uniform flashback. After 12 years of Catholic school I cannot abide Peter-pan collars or any kind of plaid.

  • gabbilevy

    She looks so ‘normal girl’ here I sort of love it. Except for the shoes. WTF, stylists?

  • Can you guys seriously stop with these Emma Stone posts? There are more interesting women out there making bold fashion choices without the aid studio-hired stylists. Can we not with this girl?

    • Skip the post if you don’t want to read it.

      • Yup. Gonna tweet about that one. 🙂

      •  Hard to when your front page is clogged with Emma Stone.

        • We’re sorry to hear you’re afflicted with some mysterious ailment that prevents you from clicking on the 21 posts out of 23 on our front page that are not Emma Stone posts. We are not, however, moved to do a thing about it. Complaints that you are not being sufficiently entertained will always be dismissed.

    • kingderella

       uhm… are you seriously critisizing stars for hiring stylists on a site which routinely begs them to hire (better) stylists?

      •  That’s exactly the problem. She always looks like a studio-hired stylist dressed her from head to toe. This is not style, this is a mannequin.

  • VioletFem

    Cute. Looks like a dress that Michelle Williams would wear.

  • PaulaBerman

    That smile looks so forced. She looks tired. Kind of hate this dress. 

  • I seriously will never understand how celebs can’t acquire shoes that fit.

    • Right?  This mystery keeps me up at night and drives me to drink.  Unless they have weird feet in totally unusual sizes — and it looks like she doesn’t — or the shoes are totally unique one-of-a-kind masterpieces — and these can’t possibly be — then why can’t they find shoes that fit?

      •  Perhaps she is actually going broke paying for plastic surgery to make her look like she actually DOES like Andrew Garfield! (Sorry, I start salacious rumors. It’s my thing.)

      • Melissa Brogan

        I think some of them wear the free sample size shoes. I don’t know if that explains this particular pair though.

  • Spicytomato1

    It’s twee! With a twist! Tweest?

    I think she looks great.

  • Lisa Dugan

    I don’t understand the middle of this dress at all.  I get that there needed to be some interest but it just looks like it fits wrong.  I feel so bad for her with the shoes.  It looks painful and honestly I’d be terrified of falling.  However, her face is lovely as always.  She makes these less than perfect things work for her which is impressive.

  • Candigirl1968

    I am in love with the jewelry.

  • I just can’t like the dress.  She looks like she should be headed to her prestigious private school.  Not a press junket.  

  • Lina_bee

    I’ll be so glad when the insanely high heel trend is over. The dress is fine, although too damned warm for June. She’s got to be sweating buckets…unless she’s had her sweat glands lasered off.

    • kimmeister

      “sweat glands lasered off” – BWAHAHAHAHA!  I don’t know if such a procedure exists, but if not, it probably will soon!

  • Vlasta Bubinka

    Those shoes are giving me railway spine.

  • Jecca2244

    she must be exhausted. she’s flown around the world. puffy eyes is probably the least of her problems. 

  • Judy_J

    The dress is cute, but those shoes are killing me, and I’m not even wearing them!


  • kingderella

    i dont know whether its me getting used to her hair colour, or if she did something, but ive been diggin it lately. still prefere red, but this is fine, too.

    dont love the dress, but shes wearing it well. shoes are clearly too big but otherwise a good choice.

  • Cathy S

    Not my favorite dress. Hey, look! It’s Denis Leary!

    •  That was my thought too!  I’ve had enough of Emma Stone, but Denis Leary?  Yippee.  Someone new and different doing nothing especially offensive (for now). I keep going back to look at him

      • mshesterp

        And from what I can tell, he looks good!  

  • Pennymac

    I find that dress weirdly unflattering, especially the way it just sort of hangs, and not in a good way. The color is about all I like. And the celebrity shoes that don’t fit is apparently one of the great mysteries of life. These are boring, nude, ugly, poorly fit, and insanely expensive. Just NO.

  • reddhouston

    This look is so boring it’s giving me the symptoms you mentioned above from not looking…I wish she could just wear jeans and sneakers…I think it would make for a more interesting outfit.

  • Ksagun13

    It looks like a too-big Catholic school dress that somehow got twisted as she was putting it on, and she didn’t fix it.  The shoes are boring and I agree with the rest of the posters, they just look painful. 

    And the model’s posture is so awful in that photo, like she doesn’t have the strength to stand up on her own, which she probably doesn’t — she may be starving to death.

  • crash1212

    I love this dress. Maybe it’s the coffee kicking in…don’t know. I think the white collar makes her skin look creamy and beautiful and I actually like those shoes – even if they’re too big. She looks great. Also, Denis Leary? Love you and you look great in that color and it’s a nice enough outfit, but you’re just a tad too casual doncha think?

  • quiltrx

    It’s bad when Denis Leary is looking better than you.

    And WTF on the poorly-sized shoes with her????

  • msdamselfly

    Wow!  Who hasn’t had their morning coffee yet?  I think the dress is incredibly flattering and her makeup looks flawless

  • I like the dress well enough, but the shoes are a big ol’ fail.  Love the rings, though.

  • nancy

    This dress just made me fall asleep. Officially getting sick of the Stone! I’ll skip my daily allotment from now on, thanks. 

  • ChaquitaPhilly

    WHY are all the shoes too big?

  • Beardslee

    Why doesn’t her stylist get her shoes the right size?  Why why why??  Those men in their sensible shoes must have to carry her off and on the photo ops.

  • I usually wouldn’t like this shade of blue but it looks great on her. And I love the jewelry.  The shoes make me nervous, though.

  • a nun dress

  • judybrowni

    the model is a consumptive little orphan annie (cough, cough) in that weird drape.

    emma fills the drape out nicely: annie, post daddy warbucks.

  • MarissaLG

    She’s rocking a grown-up Tavi look. I wish she would have done something a little more interesting with her hair, but I like it. 

  • CassieLee22

    HATE the shoes, they need to go, the dress is odd but cute

  • I love this dress. I think she looks chic and pretty. She also looks ready to be done with this press tour.

  • bluefish

    The House of Carven seems to be in a real slump — sad.  Without the drape there is no dress really — Those shoes are so wrong for this look and the jewelry is zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

  • kimmeister

    I think the dress is adorable, but would look 20x better with, say, aqua pumps instead of the ones she has on.

  • Call me Bee

    Dropsy, miner’s cough and rickets, but not consumption?  Excellent. 

  • I love her but I seriously hate that dress.  And it has nothing to do with the collar, which disappears on her anyway.  AND THOSE SHOES.  Good god hollywood, must we persist with the nude shoe trend?

  • I love the dress, but the shoes blend in with how pale her legs are and it’s FREAKING me OUT.

  • The dress is fugly. Does nothing for Emma.

  • VicksieDo

    I’d be crying too if I had to promote this movie…at all!  Looks bad to me.

    Love this outfit though.

  • I’m not loving the dress. It’s too Michelle Williams. And yes, those shoes seriously need to go. 

  • vanjar

    I like the colour of the dress, don’t like the collar. I covet the shoes on the model, they’re tini tiny and very elegant.

  • TieDye64

    The color is very pretty on her. Girl has got to be exhausted from the ridiculous amount of pole dancing she’s doing to promote her movie. It’s insane. Tiring for her, tiresome for us.

  • guest2visits

    I thought she looked especially fresh and pretty; even though the dress is not particularly interesting.
    Also thought the black shoes looked better.

  • librarygrrl64

    Re: eyes, I’d chalk it up to allergies, too. Mine have been horrendous this year.

  • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

    That dress is …. interesting.  It looks quite different on the breastless, slouchy model.  Like the color but not the collar, and the wrapped part is … interesting.  Those shoes would kill me.  I would love to know how these stars and starlets do it. 

  • afabulous50

    Hmmm…looks as though my comment is no longer here.  All I said was that I wouldn’t even wear this dress to the office.  And, no more Emma Stone…but meant that in a funny way – not mean-spirited.  Did I offend the Emma Stone police? 

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    Her hair looks really lovely here, and the color of that dress suits her down to the ground. I wish the drape at the front weren’t bagging out, but she looks pretty and understated otherwise. I know we’ve seen a ton of her lately, but I still love her.

  • butterflysunita

    That is one ugly dress.  

  • Can we please take a break from Ms. Stone & her boyfriend-of-the-moment?  Aren’t any other movies opening which need to be flogged by other actors?

  • Aurumgirl

    It really is secretary wear, isn’t it?  Right down to the dowdy but demure little pieces of jewellery.  But the lucky girl gets to stand next to Denis Leary, so there’s that.

  • Melissa Brogan

    I hate the dress. And the shoes. And maybe it’s the lighting but her face looks washed out.

    I have a feeling her stylist is exhausted with all this pole dancing.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    OK i just love this dress. Weird drape and all.  I don’t know why.  I just love it.

  • She looks better than the model does in that dress (but that’s not saying much). I want to go up behind the model and shove a stick between her shoulder blades and tell her to stand up straight.

  • Warrior89

    Yuck.  No.  Bad.  Stop it.

  • with that white collar, she looks like an episcopalian priest.

  • granddelusion

    No shit about the shoes.

  • Thathoodwink

    Her eyes look perfectly fine to me.

  • ccm800

    I am officially NOT seeing this movie. The tepid feelings for him AND her has been moved to the dislike perhaps despise column by over exposure.
