Emma Stone for Vogue Magazine

Posted on April 21, 2014

Miss Emma is a classic example of someone who should really pay attention to how she’s styled for editorials and try to replicate the looks for the red carpet. Every single look here is better than almost everything she’s worn on the Spider-Man poledance.

Then again, it’s Vogue. When all is right with the world, they’re the ones who style better than anyone else. Emma, just rip out these pages and hand them to your stylist. Do not allow her to deviate. It’ll be so much easier for you that way. Just one in a long line of unasked-for bits of advice  we don’t mind giving you, dear. No need to thank us.

    But please do NOT wear that Dior with the mesh in real time.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      also please do not wear them with what appears to be some couture version of sparkly bedazzled crocs…

      • Lori

        This. What in the living world are those hideous things and why are they on the feet of someone modelling Dior?

        • schadenfreudelicious

          i know, something that looks like a bedazzled croc mated with a Sketchers Shape Up should not be associated with the name Dior…

          • Sarah

            Man, many of designs Dior puts out these days should not be associated with the name of Dior. Yikes.

          • Let it out

            Yes! Raf Simons always makes his dresses too tricky. Why slap some garden fencing on a perfectly adequate (if dull) dress?

        • txngyrrl

          hideous shoes for sure! And all I can think of is that the model is probably happy that she doesn’t have to wear killer heels and gets to wear some comfortable-yet-ugly shoes and it could be worse, oh wait – that dress – maybe it is as worse as it gets.

          • Lori

            I’m sure that it was nice for the model to be able to wear shoes on the runaway that don’t put her in danger of a broken ankle or future knee surgery. The dress is so terrible that it’s not like the shoes ruin the look, so there’s that.

        • Judih1


      • Alloy Jane

        Right? Totally the first thing I saw when I looked at the pic with the model. They made me think of Mario Batali.

      • ChristySchiff

        i will spend the rest of my life blocking those out of my memory.

    • PastryGoddess

      God! you beat me to it.

      I was going to say that Dior dress is still ugly

      • Grumpy Girl

        It is! But I was so relieved when I realized that shiny thing on her side (on the counter) wasn’t part of the dress, that it seems a little less ugly than it could have been. I mean, sparkly hip pouff would have just been tooooo unthinkable.

    • uprightcitizen

      I was going to say the same thing. I have a feeling that if she had showed up on a red carpet in that, the uncles would have given her a (well-deserved) hard time about it being awkward, oddly shaped and too tricky to pull off. Pretty sure that’s why she’s perched on a counter in the photo shoot. That mesh stuff looks like something you buy at Home Depot to hold the insulation in place until you get the drywall up. The other dresses, as they suggest, are perfect for her.

      • demidaemon

        And shot mostly in profile, eliminating 90% of the hideousness.

    • Glam Dixie

      Agree, that is a sitting down for Vogue photographs only dress. I am glad to see someone without 4 pounds of extensions though.

    • kimmeister

      The sad thing is, it’s not even the mesh that’s the most offensive thing about that dress to me. It’s the waist-elongating black censor bar.

      • http://attiresmind.blogspot.com/ Kiltdntiltd

        It really is a Frankendress of the highest order.

      • Sarah

        I am confounded because I first thought “No to that flattened hair” then looked at the outfit and thought “Hiddy Dior Strikes again” and then wondered if the hair even mattered given that I dislike the dress so heartily. She looks like she just got out of the shower. (I know it is straightened in the Valentino shot too but it looks really flat with the Dior.)

        • kimmeister

          And then she’s posing like she’s airing out the undercarriage. Everything about that shot is a fail.

    • AnguaVonUberwald

      Oh, is hurricane fencing out this year? Damn.

    • ChristySchiff

      Cannot agree more strongly. That is couture courtesy of Michael’s craft store right there.

    • holla

      yes that one looks like a PR found materials project.

  • @Biting Panda

    Better? Yes. But not necessarily all that different. Color saturation, busy bodices, tricky skirts, it’s all here. The difference is stills versus motion. Perfect lighting versus sunlight and red carpet light. Airbrushing versus going on no sleep.

  • Emily Smith

    What is on that dior? It looks like the plastic rings a cheap six pack comes in. If you ripped it off the dress and threw it away you would need to cut them all open lest you desire to kill some turtles.

  • http://www.minniemelange.wordpress.com Sinéad Burke

    I hate to disagree but I thought the Saint Laurent Prince of Wales check suit from their Spring 2014 collection was a highlight of her meandering promotional tour. The yellow Versace was a close second!

  • Jessica Freeman

    Is it just me or is that cover shot giving Glamour Shot flashbacks?

    • @Biting Panda

      If the lighting were a wee bit “softer” she’d be there! : )

      • Jessica Freeman

        Also she should be holding on to lapels on a motorcycle jacket. And fluff the hair X1000.

    • kimmeister

      If she had had her arms crossed over her chest, with a random bow tie slung over her shoulder . . .

  • boweryboy

    WTF Dior?

  • LadyVimes

    She should further explore her hat side. She does well in hats.
    Maybe not for pole dancing and red carpets, but I could see her working them for film festivals.

    • kimmeister

      The hat is giving me a “cute chauffeur” vibe, a la Mary Stuart Masterson in “Some Kind of Wonderful.”

      • http://www.dinnerisserved1972.com DinnerIsServed1972

        I bet my hands on it.

  • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

    Her hair and makeup are beautiful and I love the Gucci, but I think waist-up is just about all I can take of the Valentino and that Dior is DEFINITELY editorial only.

    • kimmeister

      The background shade of brown on the Gucci is not normally a color I would find flattering, but it totally works on her.

      • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

        I think it’s nice with her hair colour, plus the (is it leather?) black bit gives a nice contrast, so you can ignore the fact that it’s babypoo brown.

    • marlie

      It doesn’t help that the background and shoes are in that same busy, overwhelming print. It’s just too much.

      • Kent Roby

        As I’ve noted before with this, it’s very “My name is Melinda”.

    • demidaemon

      I think you are being very forgiving about the Dior. For me, it is incinerator only.

  • Watterson

    What is the fashion industries obsession with diners? Do people even eat in diners anymore or do they just stand empty so movie stars can lounge in them beautifully or aggressively (depending on gender)?

    • uprightcitizen

      Wondering the same thing. I kind of think it’s the same diner over and over again. Maybe it’s a movie set. At any rate, it’s the fashion photo shoot equivalent of phoning it in, in my opinion. The non-celebrity version is “hailing a cab.”

  • hyperionic

    Yep these are definitely editorial only clothes. None of these would work on a red carpet so I don’t know what she’s meant to do with this advice.

  • alyce1213

    Dior wins the Industrial Materials challenge. WTF is with that dress and scrubbies on her feet?
    The colors of the Valentino are beautiful on her.

    • Kent Roby

      I think the Dior would merit an auf’ing in any unconventional materials challenge; it’s that bad.

      • demidaemon

        Well, obviously, since 90% of it is just boring printed fabric.

        ETA: I am not an apologist of this dress. It’s still very, very, ugly.

  • stubbornthoughts

    I’d like to see her wear that Valentino for the rest of the Spidey poledance.

  • marlie

    Emma looks lovely, but that Dior Frankendress is HIDDY.

  • SugarSnap108

    Dior is just making me angry now.

  • NMMagpie

    Sparkle Crocs. Who knew?

    Emma looks fabulous here. I love the shot of her sitting on the counter.

  • GillianHolroyd

    I dunno guys, she’s looking a bit Lohan-ish in the last photo.

  • Coco Cornejo

    Did anyone else see her on Graham Norton? Apparently Ms. Stone is a huge Spice Girls fan and Graham wound her up about it. She was a very good sport about it.

    • altermyego

      What a great moment that was. What made it even better was Andrew’s reaction at the thought of Emma meeting not one but two spice girls. Loved it.

  • ojosazules

    Butterfly Emma is outrageously beautiful. The Dior would be such a cool dress without the plastic six-pack overskirt thing. He needs to stop.

  • Noah

    Mostly I’m overjoyed that I don’t have to look at the Kimye cover anymore when I’m checking out at the store.

  • Stella Zawistowski

    I get that it’s been horribly cold, but NONE of this says “May” to me. The Gucci and the Valentino are lovely, but no thanks not until October.

    I suppose the Dior might say “spring” if it weren’t for the ridiculous sparkly popped bubble wrap. With that, it just says “silly has no season.”

  • what not

    With her face and figure, she should be so easy to dress. I don’t understand why she/her team has such a hard time getting it right.

  • msdamselfly

    Those are beautiful dresses, especially on the models. Loving the flat shoes.

  • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

    The fashion suits her down to the ground: a little tricky bordering on overdesigned, just the way she likes, but simple shapes that suit her figure. Simple near the face. That Dior shot is a bit ridiculous, though. Is she getting a pap smear in a diner? I get that they wanted to show the detail in the skirt, but her leg placement is so awkward.

  • Ashleigh

    What happened to Dior?

  • Jacob Bowen

    That Valentino would transfer pretty well into the real world if she got rid of the cuffs and maybe made it into a top with a black skirt. This hair color is GREAT though, and sassy gay friend would DEFINITELY say, “This is the best your hair has ever looked! I can’t believe you were going to get it wet!”

  • The Versatile Chef

    I was ignoring the ugly dress and trying to figure out if that last shot was done at Rae’s Diner on Pico.

  • conniemd

    Nicole Kidman needs to take lessons from Emma on how to wear the straight hair. I’m not a big fan of superstraight hair, but hers is trimmed perfectly evenly without flyaway split ends. It doesn’t look dead, but is shiny, too.

  • Qitkat

    She looks so beautiful here that I want to Be Her. And I covet that vintage looking purse in the diner. But what an awkward shot.

  • blue808

    She looks amazing in the clothes…but what really struck me in these photos were how gorgeous her eyes are! STUNNING!! Like a cross between a doll and a cat.

  • ScarlettHarlot

    She looked really cure on Graham Norton the other night. She was in a really simple black dress, and it was the best she’s looked for a public appearance in some time.

  • crash1212

    The clothes are OK, but I truly hate what they did to her head…flat hair is not her friend and that makeup is atrocious.

  • MilaXX

    I like the first 2 looks but I think that Dior is FMO.

    • Shawn EH

      It’s a definite frankendress, but the colors are the gray black and white she tends to like!

  • Sophie

    Not in love with the print of that first dress and the mesh in the last one. But the shapes and styling are amazing on her.

  • Synnamin

    That Valentino is TO DIE (on her).

  • formerlyAnon

    That first Gucci dress is great on her. In the truncated cover photo, anyway.

  • demidaemon

    I love everything except the netting dress, which I am not surprised to see shot completely in profile, because that is some ugly shit.

  • housefulofboys

    I love that Valentino tapestry dress on her, the colors are perfect. Yeah, I would think that one of the big bonuses of being a star and all and getting magazine covers, would be having the opportunity to learn from the best in makeup and hair and styling on how to look your best. I know if I were in that enviable position, I would have my pencil and paper in hand taking copious notes and asking questions. And yet so few translate that experience into better RC presentations. On the other hand, easy for me to say it, clearly more difficult to do it in person.

  • icm

    That last dress looks like it has a shower curtain stuck to it.

  • Aurumgirl

    It’s official. Dior now makes Stella McCartney look like a talented and style-setting designer.

    I tried to hold out but that dress with the six-pack holder mesh did me in.

  • FibonacciSequins

    I’m sure it’s hard to knock it out of the park for every whistle stop on a promo tour, but she’s had more misses than hits, imo. She looks fabulous here, aside from that weird plastic mesh stuck to her dress.

  • the_valkyrie

    Those Dior shoes are hideous!!! They look like a cross between bedroom slippers and what forensic teams wear so as not to contaminate a crime scene.

  • shelley514

    Tyra Banks to Emma Stone – “Smize child!!!!” She looks clueless in every shot. The cover proclaims her “funny and fashionable”; NOT according to these photos.

  • jay

    the combination of the dress and leather cover/cap is a little bit Mom Dominatrix, and I freaking LOVE it.

  • Danielle

    That Gucci is PERFECT for her.

  • nicewilliams

    I disagree- I think if she were standing on a stage/red carpet/etc, most of these would look as heavy/intricate as what she’s wearing now. If anything, she was inspired by this shoot to start wearing more complicated clothes.

  • dmkava

    everything about her screams Lesbian
