In or Out: Emma Stone in Fendi

Posted on June 15, 2012

Is Emma’s team just fucking with her? Is there some sort of Gaslight scenario going on behind the scenes, with evil queens slowly driving her mad by pushing her out in front of cameras looking slightly ridiculous?

Emma Stone attends the ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ premiere in Seoul, South Korea in a Fendi dress paired with Stella McCartney pumps and Cartier jewelry.

Fendi Pre-Fall 2012 Collection

Stella McCartney Platform Pump

We’ll start off with this: we absolutely love this dress. But it’s clearly not an easy dress to wear and not the kind of dress that’s going to suit a wide range of types. We think Emma could pull this off, but the styling here is distressing. We don’t know how a belt would work with this dress, but we think there’s an issue with the fact that it’s so shapeless on her. Those shoes are a bit ridiculously matchy and just busy enough to pull focus from the dress. We think a bracelet would have been a nice way to bring color.

We think her lip is way too pink. Let’s see… what else…? Oh, right. She’s sporting fucking B-52 hair for some ridiculous reason. Maybe Emma Stone can work a hairstyle like this (we have doubts), but no one should make the attempt while wearing something so loud. She’s heading into drag territory there. We don’t know what it is about the people being paid to put her together, but for some reason they’re determined to ignore the fact that clean and simple styles are what suit her the best. When you start getting fussy or too-cute with the details (like giving her Patsy Stone hair), it doesn’t look right.

      OUT! Rorschach Test/Diner Waitress.

    • Andy Morris

      Pure Wilma Flintstone.

    • Dana WhatTheFrock

      I don’t know, I’m not crazy about the shoes, but I think the rest is cute. You’re being way harsh, Tai.


    • nicole @ I am a Honey Bee


    • ChiliP

      Hm, out. Come on Emma, I know you can do better.

      And the model is getting ready to cut a bitch in that picture. Just sayin.

    • Susan Baldwin

      I do love the dress.  Perhaps hair and makeup are her homage to Mad Men?  They do not go.  

    • Super_Red

      OUT! She is so incredibly beautiful! Why does she look like this?? The dress looks great on the model, but really doesn’t suit her. 

      • Anplica Fiore

        Agreed – I’m not digging the shortened skirt on this.  OUT

        • Shreya Aren

          I think the short skirt makes it baggy and shapeless, the original proportions would have helped define it. And OMG the lips, they stand out like a beacon! OUT!

    • JackieOBlue

      Out, the top of the dress along with her hairstyle gives her really odd proportions.  The shoes are just all wrong too.

    • Linda Ritchie Unger

      I don’t like anything about the dress (other than the fact that her stylists hemmed it shorter), but I do like the shoes.  The hair is just not working – this style needs to be sleek, not messy, otherwise it looks like she stuck it up with a pencil before running out the door.  I like the lipstick.

    • Kati B

      Out. The piping around the waist is bizarre. High in the front and lower in the back. This is not a good look for her.

      But I do think she can pull of the hair, in the right scenario.

    • Athenrein

      I want the model’s boots so much.

      As for Emma? It’s just a tad too much, and I hate the shoulder flaps. Out.

      • TieDye64

        Yeah, those boots are killer. Want!

      • Tess Danesi

        The styling and longer length on the model makes the dress work. 

        And I’d kill for the boots. 

    • foodycatAlicia

      The hair is actually the only bit I like. OUT.

    • AuntieAnonny

      Just not feeling it. Out.

    • Heather Sheridan


      I like the hair and the pink lip, but that dress is doing nothing for her and looks out of place with everything from the neck up. A simple mod inspired dress in a complimentary color to the lip would have made the hair work.

    • UrsNY

      IN. Love the hair more than the dress. It’s nice to see something so fun it borders on camp for a change. Everyone’s so calculated these days.

    • Sara__B

      The dress looks like it shrunk in the wash. Nothing fits correctly. and the styling is way off. Sorry, cutie pie. OUT.

    • EditKitten

      The model (perhaps the styling as well on the model?) is making it work, but this just isn’t meant for poor Emma.

    • Vaniljekjeks

      In.  She’s my girlcrush, she’s always in, even when she’s out. 
      And I am not one for copying model styling, but she would look amazing in those boots.  

    • amf0001

      I think the dress is a size too small for her,  the shoulder flaps are in too tight aroudn her neck,  and the waist seems to sit too high, making her look a bit squat.  It looks much better on the model.  The hair is nice but doesn’t got with the out outfit,  but she is such a shining, pretty girl,  it’s ridiculous that she looks this bad here!

    • TieDye64

      I kinda dig the dress on the model, but it is beyond unflattering on Miss Stone. I hate it all really, but I do think the hair could be fun with the right outfit. This ain’t it.


    • jtabz

      Tepid IN ’cause I can’t really say this is awful, but I so much prefer the way it’s styled on the model … young and a little messy in a very chic way. But Emma’s hair-lipstick-pumps combo are pairing retro styling with what seems to be a very contemporary dress. It’s giving me fashion vertigo! Yikes!

    • kingderella

      dont know what youre talking bout. not loving the dress and still not loving the blonde, but she looks very put together to me. IN.

    • Ezmartin

      Really guys? I think she looks adorable. In.

    • SapphoPoet

      OUT. None of this works together, even if all the parts are fabulous. 

    • Lisa Weaver

      As an aside, don’t you think Emma could play Judy Jetson? She has that look.

    • MilaXX

      OUT! I don;t mind the dress although I think it should have stayed longer like the model is wearing. I can’t see what’s going on with the wait since the model’s crossed arm get in the way, but the waist on Emma looks weird. I don’t mind the shoes so much either. It’s that hair and makeup that’s dragging this down. I know she’s got a Revlon contract, and I think she could have gotten away with the bright lip if the hair wasn’t so bad.

    • holdmewhileimnaked

      the proportions of the dress have been completely thrown by the way they fiddled w/ it. i dont know if it’s the shortening that was the problem or the inexplicable shortening/widening combo–what the everlovin hella hay did they have to loosen it up for? it puts on twenty pounds in the worstest of ways– i dunno, i dont mind the hair or the makeup &, so help me, the SMcC shoes are the best part of the lot. i agree w/ you that, as designed, it’s a great dress. but not as converted. oy vey, though, she’s pretty enough that it doesnt really matter.

    • teensmom99

      The model has a much longer, fuller skirt and guess what, the proportions are much better that way. Dress is pretty horrible in any case, but would be much improved.  And I, too, have a fondness for B 52 hair and think overly pink lip is better than the awful neutrals.  So I say in from the neck up and then from the knees down (love the shoes with the right outfit).

    • Funkykatt

      Yikes. she’s such a pretty and talented woman and I hate to see her looking so…so….so….I guess…just plain wrong. 

    • Stella Zawistowski

      There’s something about the stiffness of that shoulder treatment paired with the light, flowing material of the rest of it that is just. not. working. OUT.

    • TheOriginalLulu

      LOVE the B-52s hair! She’s got just the face for it.

      The dress, on the other hand, does nothing for her except make her shoulders look oddly scrunched and her middle look wide, so for that she gets an OUT

    • Ann M. Erickson

      No on the hair and makeup alone. NO I SAY!

    • belfebe

      OUT.  Something does not compute.  I don’t know whether she needs a belt, different hair, or different shoes.  BTW, I love the shoes.  They should go with the dress, but somehow they don’t.  I’m baffled.

    • Pannyx

      In, only complaint I can make is that the shoes don’t go that well with the dress. Too matchy

    • judybrowni

      don’t think that thing qualifies for the term ‘dress.’ 

    • amye

      Okay, as a Stella McCartney fan, I have to admit that this dress is UGLY!  And terrible styling as well.


      • amye

        Oops, never mind.  I read it wrong.  I thought the shoes were Fendi and he dress McCartney.


    • chitowndg

      Out!.  The torso is laying like a a ruffles potato-chip, and the length is too short.

    • Jessica O’Connell

      OUT for just the hair and lipstick alone…she needs to fire those people quick…

    • Lina_bee

      The version on the model, with a longer hem and real sleeves instead of just caps, works much better, but it’s a weird, unflattering dress anyway. The epaulets are sort of interesting a la The Jetsons, but on the whole, OUT.

    • TSkot

      Nothing works: OUT

    • demidaemon

      OUT. I do feel slightly bad for her as she has the “WTF has happened to me” deer in the headlights look on her. However, the sum of the parts is equaling something below zero here. Had she had a different hairstyle and better styling, this may have worked.

    • BazoDee


    • unbornfawn

      OUT. I can’t get past those tiny sleeves and huge collar swallowing her up. The shoes look like high heeled sneakers. Fail.

    • Nancer

      Out. Very unflattering on her. It makes her look really wide through the waist, which we all know she isn’t.

    • Laura Nugent

      Out!  This is awful.  I agree that the dress is interesting and could maybe work, but definitely not like this.

    • mjude


    • AlexisPayne

      Not working, OUT

    • mhleta

      I like it all in spite of the Wilma Flintstone In Space vibe. Or maybe because of it. I don’t know. Maybe I can’t be objective. She delights me no matter what.  

    • terekirkland

      This dress works better with a little edge to it, otherwise it looks too staid and… dare I say, awkward? Definitely needs to be nipped in at the waist if not belted. Love it with the boots on the model, though. Seems far more fitted to her waist, too. 

    • Charles Barthelme

      Out, but mostly because as a look, it fails on the shoes.

    • Julie Chase

      The hair isn’t right, but she looks adorable-in!

    • Cathy S


    • meowing

      Definite out, altho’ the dress is nice.  Styling is weirdly aging.

    • Aly Light

      OUT… though I thought a belt might help, too.

    • Laurie Bergman

      Love the dress, hate the shoes.  I normally love bright lips, but they don’t fit here. And she looks uncomfortable, like she knows it’s all not right. OUT.

    • LP


    • Emily Smith

      me gusta, in

    • Judy_J

      OUT.  That dress is supremely unflattering.

    • MissAnnieRN

      Out. The proportions on the dress are off. The dress on the model has a much longer skirt. And those Stella pumps are popping up over and over again and they’re ugly. Patsy hair is right boys.

    • another_laura

      Noticing that the photo of the model has her arms quite obviously folded over that somewhat problematic waistline treatment.  It seems clearly to be intended to have the look that ES is showing and I don’t mind it except that they also brought it up over the knee so it looks like it’s trying to be something else.  Am I making sense?  Naaaa.

      Hate the shoes.  This color is not her friend, either. I think her hair is okay and at least is not interfering with our view of the neck and shoulders of the dress.

      Overall, OUT.

    • granddelusion

      Out. Nothing here works.

    • margaret meyers

      Someone’s messing with her.  Out.

    • GTrain

      OUT. I much prefer the styling for the model.

    • saanrio

      OUT.  I don’t know what, exactly, might help here, because to me, this is more of a “Girl, that’s not your dress” moment than anything else.  

    • Lexie

      That hair so so so bad :( The shoes don’t help either.  I like the dress, but the shorter length is kind of throwing off the proportions. Out :(

    • VicD

      The Stella McCartney shoes are just as ugly and unflattering as the rest of the Stella McCartney stuff.  Those shoes are out on everyone who’s worn them.

      However, Emma Stone is, on the whole, IN

    • call_me_schmeg

      neck-up, she’s totally going to prom in 1997. OUT.

    • formerlyAnon

      It has a GREAT sci-fi vibe to me that I love. But I’d rather keep the dress’s collar/shoulders, and the hair and makeup – sub in a more simply cut dress. Sheath-like. I think with that change, the shoes might could stay.

      *sigh* I guess if I’m effectively making her change the dress, it’s out.

      But I love the hair & the lip on her.

    • MzzPants

      Star Trek lingerie.  OUT.

    • mrspotts66

      not loving it, but not enough to call it an “out”.


    • Colleen Kay Sanceda Gadon

      Someone’s armory got raided!

    • Depot'er

      Out. looks like a Project Runway ‘make a dress out of a shower curtain’ (or plastic poncho) challenge…

    • golspie

      She looks like a diner waitress from the future.


    • lesmaha

      OUT. way out there.

    • jan lee

      I’m going with IN cos I think the dress is real cute on her but I have to say, it was close round for me cos the make up and the hair is plain sad and just so damn wrong for this dress.

    • Louise Bryan

      The parts are okay, although I don’t like the shortened hem on the dress because it skews the balance.  Together, this is a bit of a mess, maybe a warm mess.

      Sorry, Emma, yerrrrr OUT!

    • Anna Tree

      OUT. I don’t hate the dress but those shoes make me cry inside.

    • Aurumgirl

      Very bad shoes kill a dress that wants to die of humiliation anyway.  But Emma’s cute in pink lipstick.

    • Haley Buchanan

      OUT – I too love the dress, and I like it on Emma, but the hair and makeup are just bizarre unless you’re trying to go that drag route, which I don’t think she is.

    • Call me Bee

      Gee–I like it.  A lot!  Love the high hair and the dress and the pumps–and I think the pink lipstick is really perfect for this look.

      Relax–it’s just fashion!  IN!

    • marilyn

      Out:  Not because of her but because of the dress.  I think the neck area is hideous.  That collar was an afterthought, and the neck has no shaping.  It is almost as if the designer got the thing together with the interesting fabric, draped in an interesting way, and then was stumped about what to do with the neck.  The hideous plastic bee-wing collar was just stuck on a rounded neckline.  I think this dress could have been saved if something genius had been done with the neck area.  Too bad.

    • Nicole Merrill

      IN; except her hair, but we’ll just let that be.

    • jhedman

      OUT. She shortened the dress and ruined the line, turning it into a babydoll.  Ick.

    • sk8tfan

      Whoever is doing her  hair needs to be put behind bars and tortured with hot curling irons

    • Jangle57

      Dress is shapless on her, not sure about the collar but I’m feeling generous – IN

    • CatherineRhodes

      The only thing I love is the big hair! OUT

    • Kristen

      Judy Jetson in stiletto sneakers. Out.

    • Qitkat

      Sometimes a dress gets lost in translation. Emma is clearly longer waisted than the dress is designed (it’s not nearly high enough for empire, so it just looks like it doesn’t fit right, I want to tug it down). But the most egregious change was shortening the skirt, which ruins the proportions top to bottom. Too bad, because it’s an unusual, striking dress, especially with the boots on the model.

      So that’s an out.

    • minnye

      I like the fabric a lot. My first thought was that while they were shortening the dress for Emma, they should’ve taken off the heavy collar… but then she’d end up with a cute dress which would suit her but the edge in the design would be gone. I guess the dress, as designed, is only suited to willowy ethereal types like Kiera Knightly. So… OUT.

    • cleep1000

      The shoes are the only thing about this look I like. OUT.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      hair and lip are fine by me, dress and shoes not so much….

    • fallen_ikon

      I think the dress would’ve been better if it had been left at the original length. With the shorter hem it makes the top look even baggier by contrast. I really like the dress on the model, but the changes they made to it on Emma makes it just look like a sack.

    • Allison Woods

      I think it looks great on the model, but shortened, the proportions are just totally wack. Out.

    • Shawn EH

      Love the shoes, hate the dress, sorry Ems, OUT!

    • sunandmoon24

      Um…no. Making her look thick waisted and I know she can’t be.

    • Anika

      The combat boots on the model are the best thing in this entire post. Out. 

    • altalinda


    • pennypug

      I think the dress is too small on her. On her the sleeves look like cap sleeves, the waist is too high and the length too short. On the model the shoulders are wider, sleeves sit lower, as does the waist and hem. Maybe if it were a size bigger it would sit right on her waist and sholders and look more proportionally correct.

    • Mylynka

      Out.  And she looks miserable.

    • Carlodog

      The dress on the model looks very different – the sleeves, the length.  The version on Emma is awful.  No, wait, I hate the dress on the model too.  Total fail.

    • bailey debruynkops

      eventhough i hate stella mccartney-everything the collar on the dress saves all, IN

    • guest2visits

      Her dress looks like it’s in the pupal stage.  I think the longer length of the model’s works better; especially with so much
      going on at the shoulders. It needs a slim belt for Emma, or it needed to be altered, – because it’s verging on shapeless and boxy.
      And I love her hair and makeup, – she looks gorgeous; it just seems overly much for this particular dress. The shoes work ok;
      the jewelry seems too conventional for an oddball dress.

    • sashaychante

      HATE THOSE SHOES…oh, they are Stella McCartney, no wonder I hate them.  Do NOT get SMc’s esthetic at ALL.  This dress is not for Emma’s shape.  It’s so NOT for her shape, that it looks like a different dress from the models.

    • Merneith

      OUT. This dress makes her look like a broad-shouldered, thick-waisted, no-neck monster. She deserves better. I’m going to go with the evil gaslighting queens, scenario.

    • Cassie

      Oh, Emma. Why do you do this to us?

      Gotta be an OUT.

    • Eovaai

      OUT. That dress looks utterly hideous on her.

    • LambeeBaby

      Out. It looks like she is wearing the cardboard shoulder shapers that come with my dry cleaning.

    • Renaissance_Man_ATL

      OUT!  I hate the shoulders on the dress and even I think those shoes are too matchy!  OY!

    • Lilak

      Is that even the same dress?  Miss Stone’s looks like a hot air balloon compared to the model’s.

    • Lauren Lynch Fox

      Such a lovely girl and a good actress in a BAD dress…OUT

    • Joyce VG

      IN! Lighten up!

    • jcolli69

      OUT. That dress is fugly and she looks embarrassed by her hair. Poor girl.

    • Pop Tarts Jen

      I think the dress could work, but THAT HAIR! Tragic. Also, she looks totally uncomfortable in the pictures. If she would look confident, it MIGHT work.

      As it is, it’s a big ol’ OUT.

    • Dhammadina

      Out. The collar looks like two roof tiles. 

    • lizajane1776

      STAND UP STRAIGHT! There, that makes your neck look longer and the ….

      Oh, heck, I just can’t! The bangs and neck sticking forward and lack of any Vee at the neckline make a horrible focal area. I liked the shoes from the front, but from the sides they look like high heeled Keds.

      No, OUT!

    • Lisa_Cop

      I like the dress much better on Emma than the model. Just the hair is wrong. IN.

      IN!!! Hate the shoes though.

    • bellafigura1

      I love the look on the model.  It’s just all wrong on Emma.  Makes her look like she left the dentist wearing one of those xray protectors ’round her neck, and also, gives her melonbelly.

      • Charmella

         I agree! So it’s O-U-T!

    • crush on you

      It’s those strange gray lapels over the shoulders and the fact that the bodice pulls up at the center. If you look at the model’s shot, they downplay the lapels taking the pic from the bottom, and the model is crossing her arms. I think a wide belt would have helped wonders. And something like a clean ponytail. I’m fine with the shoes though.

    • Kristy Evans

      Yeah, way harsh, T-Lo! She looks AMAZE. IN IN IN

      Out.  Awful.  Somehow, though, I see Dianna Agron working this.

    • PaulaBerman

      The dress seems not to fit. It makes her look bloaty/pregnant, and it shouldn’t be possible to do that to Emma Stone, much less for her own stylist to do it to her. Plus, her headsuit is laughable. OUT.

    • NurseEllen

      I don’t mind the hairstyle, but that ensemble is uglissimo.  OUT.

    • LinXGUA

      She only needs a dalmatian.
      I prefer the length of the one on the model, though.
      Ehm … out.

    • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

      That is SO not her dress!  The proportions are clearly off – it was shortened too much, the waist is just weird and makes her shapeless, which we know she isn’t.  Dislike the shoes, too, at least with that outfit.  The dress looks so cute on the model – somebody did ES a disservice by altering the dress.  OUT.

    • LilyPad

      OUT. The fit on that dress is very unflattering in the waist, and I agree that the makeup and hair were very poorly suited to the look.

    • Patricia Gillett

      Stella McCartney Platform Pump? Those four words should never have been strung together at all, let alone refer to something that actually exists. 

      OUT, for the shoes alone.

      I like the dress on the model, not so much on Emma.  It makes her look thick in the waist.  Hate her Sarah Palin hair and hate x10 her pink lipstick. 

    • DCSheehan

      Out. Mucky dress, badly styled.

    • Ass Kicking Adviser

      IN: I am so relieved you liked the dress because I really love it. I agree that maybe it could have been altered to be slimmer at the waist (because you are right that I don’t see it working with a belt). I disagree about the hair, it’s working for me in this instance. I think any hair on the shoulders would be distracting to the collar of the dress. It’s the shoes that are just ruining it for me. Hiddy. Matchy, ugly, focus-pulling, hiddy.  But I can’t let the shoes alone make this look out. Took too much guts to wear the dress.

    • ballerinawithagun

      Out! The multiple collars(???) and cap sleeve combination are especially frightening. I love the Kate B 52s hair but not with this dress.

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      In.  I hate that dress.  It’s not fitting her.  And I hate her shoes.  They make me sad.  But I love her hair and I love her.   I accept this should not be an “in” but I can’t help it.  In.

    • Samantha Irene

      Out. Hate the collar!

    • RzYoung

      OUT awful, makes her look like she has no neck…now I’ll be on ‘neck watch’ in all her other outfits to see if she has a neck or not.

    • PeaceBang

      That is a really cool dress but it really isn’t working for Miss Emma. Too boxy and shapeless. Shame. The Stella McCartney shoes are so very ugly that I have to give this an OUT. The hair and lipstick would have been fine with a cute outfit.
