Fugger: Emma Stone

Quite Well Played: Emma Stone in Prada

There are some bits and bobs here that I would change PERSONALLY, as in, if it were on my body (for example, on me, a cut that low would look terrible). But on Emma, it all hangs together nicely.

The pelvic equator also wouldn’t flatter me, but again, on Emma it works, even if I don’t completely understand why it’s tapering off on the right, and despite the fact that the skirt resembles vertical blinds.

I’d have finished it with a slim tennis bracelet, I think — just a last dash of something — but I deeply appreciate her dark pedicure, which is a small but subtle detail that makes this feel fully considered. What I REALLY enjoy is that I scrolled down very quickly at first and had a strange hallucinatory moment where I thought I saw the skirt swish. So on the whole, I and my tricksy mind jointly declare this pretty damn good.

Well Played Cover: Emma Stone on Vogue, November 2016

I mean, can we be honest? There is no way I wasn’t going to love this cover:

Emma Stone Vogue November 2016

Emma Stone in a Breton stripe — cropped or otherwise; this one is by Michael Kors — is possibly my platonic ideal of a magazine cover, second only to whenever Vogue remembers that Lupita Nyong’o always looks amazing on their covers and should be on one every year. This just has major personality — and using the “V” for their “vote” headline is clever (and a very good suggestion on their part). In addition to patriotism, Emma is promoting La La Land, which I am actually quite excited to see, and, for once the interior shoot is charming and seems to be telling an actual story (sometimes I feel like Vogue is all, “eh, I dunno. Stand her in front of a wall, then let’s make it look like she was hit by a car. Oh, then I guess we turn her into a Dust Bowl schoolteacher, and then end with…ugh, who cares? Maybe a milkmaid. Whatever.” Not in this case).

And, of course, nowadays one cannot be on the cover of Vogue without doing 73 Questions, it seems, and so Emma has complied. I have to admit, I was really distracted by eye-balling her apartment, but I also actually burst out laughing at a few of Emma’s answers. These videos never feel 100% natural — although the SJP one might have been the best, and the DanRad one was great – but you can always tell when someone is a decent actor. Which she is:

Major bonus points for the Britney imitation, obviously.

Fugs and Hmms: Emma Stone and Amy Adams

These two women should be EVERYWHERE for the next few months. La La Land has awards buzz — will anyone in the comedy/musical category be able to beat Emma Stone at the Globes? — and Amy Adams is in Nocturnal Animals and Arrival, both of which are drawing compliments as well. This means lots of things, but let’s face it, here one thing reigns above all else: SO MANY OUTFITS. And so it begins.

Fug or Fab: Emma Stone in Chanel at TIFF

This seems like a very smart return to Emma’s Captain Adorable days. Not that anyone ever called her that, but I think it applied, and here still does:

It’s incredibly smart styling. Emma is starring opposite Ryan Gosling — a guy who, I think, would love to have been a smooth-as-silk Rat Pack member and would have walked into clubs snapping his fingers to the beat of a song only he could hear – in a musical drama/romance called La La Land, in which she plays an aspiring starlet. And what better outfit could she pick for a retro-feeling project than a retro-feeling ribbon headband and a dress that looks like every sunny day in southern California. She’s one part Pleasantville, one part 13 Going on 30, a dash of Hayley Mills, and then heaping scoops of her own innate charm.

I’m not ENTIRELY sold on the dress — it looks like it censored itself while she slept — but when the industry wants the world to go see charming, whimsical Emma Stone in a high-concept movie, then it must deliver charming, whimsical Emma Stone on the red carpet. Mission accomplished.
