Emma Stone (x2)

Posted on June 18, 2012

Miss Emma, continuing her summer-long poledance for the Spider-Man movie, went a little edgy-fem, with mixed results.

Emma Stone attends ‘”The Amazing Spider-Man” photocall in Moscow, Russia in a Lanvin dress paired with Brian Atwood shoes, Nikki Baker  earrings, and Dalla Nonna stacking rings.

Oh, nicely done, dear. This, to us, is the perfect Emma Stone look. She needs a little edge to prevent her from looking bland, but she also needs to dabble in that old-chool femininity because, really, that’s her look. Love the dress and love the jewelry. The shoes are inoffensive (if a little dull). We’re okay with the flyaway hair (JUST okay), but we really can’t with that makeup, which makes her look like a baby punched her in each eye. Still; one of the best looks from her in a while.

On the other hand…


Emma Stone attends Moscow premiere of “The Amazing Spider-Man” in an Emilio Pucci dress paired with Christian Louboutin pumps and Dana Rebecca Designs Nikki studs.

Sweetie, this just isn’t in your wheelhouse.

The color looks amazing on her, but she just doesn’t have the dress-wearing skills to pull off that bodice, which looks a bit sloppy on her. And the hair’s out of control this time.

Stylists, why do you take really pretty girls and do everything in your power to make them less so? We don’t understand. Screw whether or not the dress is “interesting” or the makeup “trendy.” Does she look pretty in it; yes or no? If you have to hem and haw on the “yes” part, then this is not the look for her. Simple as that.

    That blue dress is SO Nicole Kidman I almost thought the first shot of it was her. She would wear the hell out of that dress. Emma looks okay but, yeah — not her best style. First dress is gorgeous. I kind of like her hair but it definitely doesn’t work with the blue dress.

    • Linda Taylor

      but the blonde looks really washed out- add that to the pale blue, and blah...DemoforFrank.blogspot.com

      I know! I mean, what’s with the big pink eye shadow? That makes her look like a Chinese opera singer.

        is it me or does the close-up pic make her look like her boyfriend’s twin sister?  Weird.

    • MK03

      This is why fair-skinned ladies should avoid pink eye makeup. We look ill when we wear it.

      • http://twitter.com/pennyeager Penny Eager

        She looks a little like she’s been crying, also…

    • http://twitter.com/bredalot Bridget Smith

      I once read something that said girls with blue eyes should wear pink/orange/red eyeshadow to make their eyes pop. And I mean, this is true, but it’s also a TERRIBLE IDEA.

      • Sobaika

        I hate those ‘rules’ about making eyes pop. According to them I’d have to go around with bright green eyeshadow to make my brown eyes pop, even when I know I’d look a colossal fool.

        Skin tone and eye shape are always more important factors to consider with makeup, not eye color.

         MAC Amber lights – orange enough to make blue eyes pop, bronze enough not to look like you’ve been crying.

    • Le_Sigh

       Right???? My eyes started to itch looking at those pics

    • MightyMarshal

      She looks like she has really bad pink eye and wiped the snot/crust away from them just before the picture.

  • http://twitter.com/siao siao

    I like both looks, with the exception of the shoes in the second, though I admit neither look is very stunning.

    Mostly I really like what the stylist is doing with the jewellery. Her hair is super cute in the second look.

  • Jecca2244

    i am starting to think the problem is more her hair than the dresses. i like both of these. 

    • http://twitter.com/DarthJaeda Jaeda Laurez

      that’s what I was thinking- I think the pale blue dress would look fantastic with her red hair, but the blonde looks really washed out- add that to the pale blue, and blah.

  • NDC_IPCentral

    Pink/red eyeshadow is almost never a good choice – looks like a burgeoning infection.  Or a sunburn.

    • introspective

      i know the stylist thought she was going for an ethereal/fairy-esque look. but combine that fug makeup job with that 2nd dress and her hair (both the bad color and the cray hairdo) and she looks downright consumptive.

  • http://twitter.com/AShinyOConnor A Shiny O’Connor

    Pink eyeshadow makes her look like she’s been crying for a day straight.

  • MilaXX

    I like the first look better on her than the model, but that eye shadow is a big ole “NO” Second look really just doesn’t work. The earrings are really pretty. I wouldn’t mind having a pair myself.

    The line version of that top looks heavy and the shirt/skirt combo for some reason is making her look a little thick wasted.

  • Lina_bee

    The Lanvin is a total stylist win, apart from the eyeshadow, but that Pucci doesn’t look like it’s made to be worn off the runway.

    • http://profiles.google.com/gillianholroyd gillian holroyd

      Nailed it.The Pucci demands perfect unbending posture at all times. She carries it off in the first photo though.

  • TheOriginalLulu

    I think she looks amazing in the first look.

    Second look, aside from the color, is all wrong for her.

  • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

    Sorry, that pale blue Pucci dress looks like a pile of wet laundry on her.  

  • sweetlilvoice

    I don’t get this red eye shadow trend. I saw a waitress with it last night and she looked a bit crazy. First look is a win, second look a fail. Love the yellow.

  • NCDFan

    This dress calls out for a tall woman with a swan like neck. Also, the model has her hands in the skirt pockets which gives more shape to the dress. Not sure that it is all that special without that touch.

    • AudreysMom

       Maybe she can loan it to Keira. She’s got a lot of RC work to do for her film that opens next weekend. Something tells me Keira would know what to do with this dress.

  • 3boysful

    I covet those Dana Rebecca earrings in the second look!

  • jen_vasm

    Sorry, I keep involuntarily re-coloring her hair red and both outfits improve considerably. The pink makeup is a wee bit bizarre.

  • Christina Brennan

    I disagree with your assessment of the light blue look.  I really like it!  It’s edgy and feminine.  I agree that the make up is tragic, though.

  • drdirection

    Dear TLo, what sort of hair-do is your favorite? I mean this in a nice way, I’m just curious…

  • http://phantomminuet.blogspot.com/ MinAgain

    I like both dresses on her, but I do agree with Jennifer that the blue dress has Nicole Kidman written all over it.  

    That said, Emma’s hair and make-up are atrocious. 

  • ChaquitaPhilly

    Like the first dress better than the second one, but what about HER HAIR???

  • SpcilK

    Love the Lanvin dress on her. Wrong shoes for that dress.

  • Qitkat

    Oh, Miss Emma, you are still one of my favorites, even if I prefer you in red hair. I digress. Wowsa, was I blown away by your lovely self in the Lanvin. Such a stunning dress, you are very close to a werq here, head (I’m sure you were going for slightly windblown, like a breezy meadow day to go with the florals of the dress, with the charming earrings) to toe, shoes are fine by me, no need to distract from that lovely, did I say that already?, dress. You are glowing.

    Second verse, not same as the first. Still so pretty, so I assume you were aiming for the slightly wan, floaty, misty look here? with a side of *renaissance princess* tossed in with the golden hair ornament (what is that?). The Pucci has such an intricate construction on the bodice, looking especially at the side view, with the hint of self-fabric covered buttons which I have always adored, but require a lady’s maid to insert oneself into such a dress. Yet not as successful as the first look, you are feminine and so confident and mignon in both.

    • AthenaJ

      I dig the gold hair ornament, but of course I’m already planning out this year’s trip to the Ren Faire… so there you go :)

  • PeaceBang

    Absolutely adore the first look — except for, as you say, the punched-looking eyes. I loved her in the first shot of the Pucci dress but then it fell apart when she moved. Great color on her, and the shoes are beautiful with it. The braid detail is sweet if they could just get the flyaways and that one big chunk of layered hair under control. 

  • jilly_d

    I actually like the blue on her – I think it just looks sloppy in that last photo because she’s bending forward to talk to someone and not standing up straight.  With better hair and makeup this would have been a hit.

  • Lilithcat

    Stylists, why do you take really pretty girls and do everything in your power to make them less so? We don’t understand. 

    If they followed your advice, we’d have nothing to talk about.  Post after post of “WERQ” would get really dull, no?  So, in reality, they are doing us all a big favor!

    • AthenaJ

      Agreed, sometimes we have to unleash our bitter-kitteness on some poor, hapless celebrities. It’s just the way of nature.

  • Judy_S

    The eye makeup is ugly, but these colors are so much nicer on her than the browns she was wearing last week. For the blue dress, it seems to me that in the full-length posed photo she looks great–it’s in the more relaxed shots that the dress betrays her, or she it. 

  • judybrowni

    oh dear me the ’80s red eye shadow is back

  • charlotte

    I want the first dress and the earrings. The second one though….

  • kittenwithaquip

    I think the main problem is actually the condition of her hair. It looks like it has been through a lot of processing, making those wispy tendrils look fried and flyaway. I’m fair with green/hazel eyes, and a bit of pink makes the color of my eyes stand out. I would tend toward more of a lavender, but it’s not as if I have an edgy look I’m trying to impart.

  • AthenaJ

    I just love the visual of Emma Stone being punched in the face by a baby. No idea why.

  • http://twitter.com/SparklyCasanova UglyCasanova

    Yep, with you guys, love-love-love the first one.  Isn’t she just beaming? I wonder where what’shisface is?

  • MightyMarshal

    The second dress would look amazing on Charlize Theron. Just sayin.

  • mhleta

    Love the first look. Disagree on the eye makeup; It’s edgy on her, though I’ve seen it look bloody on others. Judging by her super-straight posture in the first shot of the Pucci look, I’d say she’s aware of the potential pitfalls of this dress, which looks wonderful when she’s standing upright but falls to chaos the minute she slouches a little. The deconstructed hairdo looks fine in the first look, but, again, gets a bit chaotic in the second. I agree with Kittenwithawhip, that the problem with her hair may be that the ends are fried. 

  • nannypoo

    I’ve never understood that orange eye shadow. What is it supposed to represent? Allergies? Up all night crying? Anyway, I love the first dress. It’s perfect for her. The second one, not so much, but compared to what a lot of these people are wearing it’s not so bad. Just not so good.

  • lunulaoblongata

    I don’t think that first dress suits her at all. Yellow is not her color, and busy dresses never look right on her. I like the idea of the second dress, she looks gorg in the full-on pic.

  • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

    I **LOVE** the first dress! The makeup is weird, but not offensive. The blue dress is pretty, but there’s something a little off about it. Maybe it would have been better if it had stayed sheer?

  • minnye

    The first look is perfection. The flaws that TLo and others point out aren’t enough for me to dislike the second one. I think it’s sophisticated and beautiful on her.

  • http://twitter.com/connectinglines Me Again

    She needs dark red hair.  So much more gorgeous that way.

  • SapphoPoet

    She looks wonderful in the yellow and black.

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    Damn boxing babies. I really want to like that first dress, and I do in close-up, but I’m not sold on the longview.  She needs to set that second dress free to find January Jones (love the jewelry, though).

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Bob-Sponge/100000465550991 Bob Sponge

      YES! her choice of jewelry is impeccable. LOVE those earrings.

  • sashaychante

    First dress – nice.  Second dress – Nicole Kidman.

  • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

    She killed it with the Lanvin, although I do feel the lack of the statement necklace.  That was a STATEMENT.

  • turtleemily

    I like the first dress on her more than the model. I wouldn’t have guessed that she’d look good in yellow.

  • http://asskickingadviser.com/ Ass Kicking Adviser

    I liked them both. The first was defnitely better but I am not having any problems with her in the blue. 

  • snarkykitten

    she looks like a sister wife with pink eye in that second look. but the first one is fierce as shit!

  • quiltrx

    Love the first dress; the second isn’t ‘her’ at all.  And she looks swollen-eyed and exhausted in both, and like she is SO over having her hair done.

  • NC_Meg

    I was thinking the same exact things you two were thinking before I even read your comments and I totally agree. I feel like I just graduated to the next level of being a bitter kitten.

  • TieDye64

    Loving the first dress on her, but the makeup in both instances is horrible. No way in hell on the 2nd look.

  • Lisa_Cop

    The Lanvin dress the model is wearing is yellow with grey trim; Emma’s version is yellow with black trim. I much prefer the grey (gives the dress a lighter feel). Also think a few inches shorter plus a statement necklace (like on the model) would improve the look.

    I like the Pucci but not sure about that baby blue color.

    i love both dresses. I love how she werqs them better than the models. 

  • guest2visits

    Agree first dress is much nicer; styling matches.  The second looked fine until the close up of how messy the hair and fussy the
    jewelry. The light blue dress needs to stay simple and clean, like the shoes and clutch she’s carrying. The hair treatment
    should have been sleek and severely pulled up or back; the zillion buttons down the back are busy enough. Still a pretty dress.

  • nancylee61

    I hate the light blue on her – it is as dull as dishwater. Ugh. Looks like my old Aunt Lila would wear, except for the chest twists.

    On the other hand, I really love the first look on her!!

  • Wellworn

    The runway styling on the Lanvin dress makes it almost disappear.  Way to sell dresses!
