We love Emma Stone. We think she’s charming, adorable, talented and full of charisma. We say this as a shield against the ripe tomatoes to come for saying the following:
Why is it the stars who complain the loudest and most often over things like paparazzi and red carpets are the ones most likely to, say, sport two entirely different high end outfits to the same event; one for entering and one for leaving?
Not that we think she has all that much control over things like this, really. Once publicists get it in their heads that the trash cans outside the Letterman studio are a major photo opp for their clients, the wheels were set in motion to make it a requirement instead of an option for them. And since very few publicists want their clients to be posing for pictures looking like crap, the “walking into the studio” styled ensemble was born. Believe it or not, we don’t think this is a good thing. As much as we love seeing fashionable stars in discussable outfits, turning something that used to be done without any fanfare at all (entering a studio for a taping) into a press event like this just means one more level of artificiality in the celebrity sphere. The likelihood of someone like her seen dashing into the studio in jeans and a t-shirt, looking fresh-faced and unpretentious is getting slimmer and slimmer.
But hey, if the fashion and celebrity worlds want to put one more outfit out there for judging, who are we to withhold that from them? Let’s get to it.
Cute and almost business-like, but COMPLETELY INSANE to be wearing a leather jacket in New York in July. Love the shades. The shoes feel like a missed opportunity to take this a little bit away from office-wear.
She nailed it with the second look, though:
Adorable. We don’t even mind the nude shoes. We’re not sure about that lip belt, though. That’s venturing into twee territory.
