Emma Stone Comes Out Strong at the AFI Life Achievement Award Gala

Posted on June 09, 2017

Emma Stone attends the American Film Institute’s 45th Life Achievement Award Gala Tribute to Diane Keaton at Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California.


We’re pulling this dress out of a lineup of stars that we’ll be featuring in a bit in a rundown. We did so because we haven’t seen Miss Emma in a while and because she smartly took advantage of her re-emergence (just as promos for her new movie are ramping up) to wear something impossible to ignore. Miss Girl deserves a little spotlight time for being so good at grabbing it.

We are … not entirely in agreement on this one. Lorenzo … wait for it … LOVES it, of course. Tom doesn’t hate it but he thinks it’s at least mildly overdesigned. “Mildly” because he’s thinking if you only remove one element – the slits in the skirt – this dress improves tremendously. But Lo is seriously feeling the deconstructed quality of the skirt and the way the patterns and textiles sort of melt into each other. T’s interested in that latter quality, but he feels that the abrupt shiFt to a large and overwhelming black yoke works against the motif.

We think we respect the look too much to put it up to a vote. Rather, let’s discuss. What parts of this work for you, if any? The pattern-mixing? The textile blending? The roughness of the skirt? The colors? And if almost none of it works, how many elements need to be changed for you to like this frock?
