She might have voiced a cave woman in the latest animated, cinematic sensation, The Croods, but in the fashion world Emma Stone is no Neanderthal.
The spunky redhead (she’s actually blonde, but dyed it red on Superbad director Judd Apatow’s command) channels the late, great Lucille Ball in the comedy stakes and can safely be accused of flaming brilliance on the red carpet, where her go-to colour is often red.
Recent notable examples are the red Lanvin gowns she wore to the 2012 Met Gala in New York and the Gangster Squad premier in Los Angeles. She teamed both with a bright red lip and the latter with red accessories, bag and shoes. Of course, who can forget the stunning red Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown at this year’s Oscars? With a large satin bow tied around her neck she looked like the kind of statuesque Christmas gift men secretly wish for.
Stone, 24, who shot to fame in teen comedies like The House Bunny, Easy A and Superbad, knows how to dress for her age. Short, but not too short hemlines in everything from Chanel to Giambattista Valli, teamed with a cute coloured pump, ensure her continual place on best-dressed lists. Whether she's sporting a red do or sticking to her natural strawberry blonde, Stone wears her down-to-earth, bubbliness like an accessory.
As her career progresses to include more sophisticated roles (in films like Crazy, Stupid, Love, The Help and Gangster Squad), the more sophisticated couture pieces are entering her wardrobe - including Gucci, Stella McCartney and Andrew Gn. In her downtime she prefers a more preppy, tomboyish look: Rag and Bone jeans, Isabel Marant boots and a shirt and cardigan from Madewell.
A New Yorker, she’s often photographed in a smart trench coat or a warm winter parka. Whether she’s photographed filling up at a Boston gas station or walking hand-in-hand down an LA street with boyfriend and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 co-star Andrew Garfield, Stone always looks slick. She’ll throw on a scarf or a splash of colour in a cute tartan jacket or a bright pink lip for interest. And she doesn’t go anywhere without her beloved Ray Ban Wayfarers.
Which of these is you favourite Emma Stone look?
