Fug Crazy Love


Listen, I DO love Emma Stone. And I love that she is as pale-legged as I am. But I’m not madly in love with this:

The shows, I adore, and I’m thrilled she didn’t tie the neck bow, but otherwise I can’t help but feeling like this is deeply and sincerely blah. The shape is kind of -less, and while I suspect the appliques are charming in person, in photos they make her look a bit like she got splashed by street-detritus, Carrie-Bradshaw-in-the-opening-credits-of-SatC-style. Which is all well and good if you’re wearing a tutu in public, but perhaps less than ideal in this.

    I think I like it because its different. And, nothing is showing that shouldn’t be showing.

    This makes her look much bigger than she actually is.

    The waist is at a sort of accidental location. I like the fabric and I like the pale on pale, but it’s not an attractive fit.

    It really does make her look big and she certainly isn’t. I dunno, I yawned as I was reading this post, just sayin’

    I’m not crazy about the rolled-up sleeves, and why have a neck bow if you’re not going to tie it?

    A belt, maybe? Defining her waist would have made this a different outfit.

    I like it, but if she would just take that ribbon that’s hanging around her neck and use it as a belt/bow around her waist, I think I’d love it.

    She could probably use a size or two smaller, but I still think it’s pretty.

    Shows = Shoes?
    Attention fair skinned women everywhere!
    It is a well known fact that wearing a color like this will do nothing but wash you out.
    Go for the color, every time.
    I love Emma Stone, but this does nothing for her.

    Really don’t see a problem with this. I even like it. I am in the school of why wear a bow and not tie it, though. My only quibble.

    I quite appreciate someone who isn’t bothered about proving that she’s slim. So many women would be too scared about whether someone might think she hasn’t got a waist to wear that, but she’s got the confidence to cover up. Sleeves and no deep cleavage as well, a refreshing change. It needs to be that short, mind you, or it’d look like a nightdress.

    If it were sleeveless and a tad longer, and if she were standing up straight and wearing red or purple shoes, this would have been a home run. As it is…well, you tried, kid.

    I love Emma Stone. LOVE.
    However, I agree with The Other Molly–girl needs some color (on her clothes, not her skin). She has beautiful pale skin, but her dress is practically the same color and I don’t think matching your dress to your exact skin tone is ever a “do”. So yeah, in a different color, maybe.

    That is one fancy nightie. Too bad she forgot to change into a dress before she left the house.

    How about add a wide green belt, cut off the bow entirely, style her hair (or at least brush it), and change to cuter shoes? Personally I think this is probably an intentional fail designed to keep her interesting to the fashion police, and in that sense it’s a complete success.

    This dress is not great, but Emma Stone is seriously my new girl crush. I love her!

    First thing I thought was “tie the stupid bow, already.” Making it a belt is also a good option. It rather looks like a baby-doll skirt with all the pleats and wide open hemline, and I almost expect her to lift it up to her chin and show us ruffled panties. Maybe going down one size might help. The shoes from this angle, look like a grandmother’s version of sandals, from the Blair catalog.

    Bless her for not falling into the “I have pale legs therefore I must TAN” trap that I did at a young age. I still haven’t quite made it out.

    Adding a belt and changing the appliques to a bright color would do wonders for this outfit.

    so this is the second look in a row we’ve seen where she appears to have no waist. I’m NOT saying she’s pregnant…but I’m not NOT saying it.

    It’s PROBABLY just the cut though.

    I like the dress a lot, and really only skinny girls should wear this kind of deliberately shapeless silhouette (I can’t resist it, and I am… not a skinny girl, and it’s never good) but lawks! that exact shade of ivory! against her skin! Her face, which I suspect is coated in foundation, looks particularly horrible and recently risen from an unquiet grave. Off-whites are always so difficult.

    I like this, but I would love it if she rolled down the sleeves and tied the bow on the top! FAB!!! I would wear this!

    Cut, color, fabric or styling – it still comes up either “nice nightie” or “fancy housedress” for me.

    I had a dress very much like this one back when I was young and thin, only it was cream-colored. As I’m olive skinned and dark haired it did not wash me out. Actually, I think it suits Stone even if she does look a little too pale.

    I like it, but I don’t think it suits her, and I also think it’s too short.

    If that dress were rather longer, and were being worn by an older woman with hippie tendencies and a figure that needs a bit of disguise (me), then it’d be adorable. Off-\white with a touch of black looks great on pale skin.

    I love this. I would wear this.

    Shoes, anyone? I love those shoes! The dress is cute. It needs something, a belt in a fab colour with a matching purse?
    Did anyone ever think of this–what if there was a website or blog for celebs to go to criticize clothes that the general public were wearing? Or is that just their lives? Ha!

    Black belt and I like the tie untied.

    That shade of white makes her look sickly. This would have looked better if it were cream, I guess, but still the dress is too loose to be flattering. It’s a little too disheveled and pajama- like to be “dressed”.

    Probably a abd pic – anyone an idea who made this dress?
