Oscar nominee Emma Stone's red-carpet looks take the style trophy
In the span of just one movie, 2010’s teen comedy “Easy A,” Emma Stone transformed from a freckle-faced high schooler to a glam sexpot, instantly securing her star status in Hollywood. Though she still plays the ingenue on screen, Stone, 28, is every bit the sophisticate on the red carpet.
Now reaping acclaim for her role as striving actress Mia in “La La Land,” Stone this month accepted her first Golden Globe wearing a pale pink Valentino gown with a plunging neckline, nipped waist and symbolic, glittery silver star embellishments.
Though the actress rarely veers from solid colors and simple silhouettes, she’s become a daring trendsetter and a perennial on best-dressed lists. At the 2015 Golden Globes, her custom Lanvin jumpsuit with a beaded bodice was more chic than most dresses. Four years earlier at the Globes, she pared down with a minimalist Calvin Klein Collection backless dress in an uncommon pale peach.
Nominated for her role in “Birdman,” she made long sleeves and a high neckline look fresh in her backless Elie Saab chartreuse gown at the 2015 Oscars. With such unusual color choices, Stone’s longtime stylist, Petra Flannery, has made the most of her client’s famous porcelain complexion and engaging emerald eyes. She’s donned periwinkle Prada, bubble gum pink Thakoon and forest green Valentino.
