Emma Stone Lovin’

In honor of Spider-Man coming out the other week, I thought I’d do a post about my favorite red carpet fashion maven, Ms. Emma Stone. I love her for more reasons than one. She’s a great actress, she’s incredibly stylish and poised, and she is, best of all, absolutely hilarious. She’s almost a year younger than me but is definitely far more mature! Enough of that, let’s get to the fun stuff!

Favorite Emma Stone movies (all of which are really, really good and really, really funny): Crazy Stupid Love, Friends with Benefits, The Help, Easy A, Zomebieland, Superbad, and Housebunny

Favorite Emma Stone looks:

Emma Stone in Martin Grant at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards. I love the volume and angles of this outfit and the pink lips.

Emma Stone (in Bottega Veneta) at the Amazing Spider-Man premiere in Rome. Such an elegant and unique evening gown. I love the peplum and the high neckline.

Emma Stone (in Chanel) at the Los Angeles premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man. I absolutely love the contrasting colors and elaborate details in this gown.

Emma Stone (in Gucci) at the premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man in Paris. She never ceases to surprise. Going for the goth glam look at this premiere.

Emma Stone (in Elie Saab) at the London premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man. This is absolutely one of my top looks for her. It’s so modern and glamorous and age-appropriate.

Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli – Oscars 2012. She is a total knockout in red. I love the oversize bow, cat eyes, and smooth hair.

Emma Stone at the Met Gala wearing Lanvin. I love this gown because it is playful and flirty. Amazingly, it has 3,000 plastic flowers sewn to it!

What is NOT to love about this Lanvin look she wore to the Oscars this year? I love the peek of red down the sides, the detail on the shoulder, and the rock and roll belt. Such an age appropriate and glamorous look!

This is a FANTASTIC menswear look by Gucci. I LOVE the emerald green against her hair color and the smoky eye.

Another fabulous emerald look from Emma, this time she wears Dolce and Gabbana. I LOVE the lace, and pairing the red lips/nails and leopard pumps with the gown takes it to the next level.

This is a love or hate look and I tend to LOVE this Giambattista Valli look. The color combo and unique waistline is SO quirky and cute. She pairs it with simple nude pumps, any other color would have been too much!

Emma Stone in Tom Ford at the Crazy, Stupid, Love premiere. I absolutely love this dress, again for the unique details. The volume at the waistline and the laser cut lace with the nude background is so glam! I also love her soft hair and red lips.

Emma Stone in a silver Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquière gown with a gilded chain-link collar. This look is SO sultry and sexy and such a change with the blond hair.

This is such a simple and figure-flattering gown by Calvin Klein. Love the clutch and the updo and the color of the dress.

This is such a unique Bottega Venetta gown. She clearly loves lace and layered colors. The fringe at the bottom is a playful and fun detail that makes it appropriate for the event. Note the fun clutch and shoes too!

These are just  a FEW of her best looks, but I love almost everything she wears. What are your favorites? I love the 2 menswear inspired looks, the D&G lace look, and the Calvin Klein coral number.


Met Gala Red Carpet

I have decided to stray from weddings today to work on a post about red carpets. If you know me at all, you know that this is my true passion and obsession. The Met Gala red carpet often has some of the most fun and daring looks of the season – which is why it’s one of my favorite red carpets.

I’ll start with the bad:

Kirsten Dunst in Rodarte – no ma’am, a suit gown with greasy hair? You are NOT Tilda Swinton

Hailee Steinfeld in Miu Miu – the color is wrong, the makeup is very wrong, the hair is too plain

Beyonce in Givenchy Haute Couture – Is it really necessary to show that much skin after having a baby. Don’t even get me started on the feathers, ma’am.

I just, no. It’s okay to show a LITTLE skin.

Jessica Chastain in Louis Vuitton – She’s SO beautiful and this dress just makes her look, well, chubby. And the lips are too dark. And the cleavage is funky.

Kristen Stewart in Balenciaga – there is literally nothing right about this look!

Now onto the trends of the night: peplum, metallics, and citrus colors. There are some notable overlaps here – I’ll post those pics only once, but the caption will remark on the overlap!

I’m not saying I love this outfit, but it’s fun, it’s yellow, and I love that she’s wearing Elizabeth Taylor’s garment. Makes it pretty special.

January Jones in Versace – one of my favorites of the night. Sexy, bold, and rocking the necklace, yellow, AND the peplum. Get it girl.

Ginnifer Goodwin in Monique Lhuillier – I love this gown on her and the gown’s details. I always love her short hair too. If we could just get her to smile…

Emma Roberts in Escada – This look is simply stunning on her. One of the best she’s ever worn. The color of the dress, styling, and hair are spot on. Notice the peplum-ness too. Best dressed nom for sure.

Kristen Bell in Tommy Hilfiger – She has the effortless beauty look down pat. Perfection.

Solange Knowles in Rachel Roy – Absolutely love this color on her skin tone. Her hair is rocking, the peplum is darling, and she TOTALLY beats her sister tonight.

Jessica Alba in Michael Kors – I love this color on her. Het styling is stunning and she knows how to accentuate curves. She’s not a best-dressed nom tonight simply because I’ve seen her look better. (2006 Academy Awards, 2011 BAFTAs)

Sofia Vergara in Marchesa – she always looks good, even if she’s a little predictable with her mermaid silhouettes.

Nina Dobrev in Donna Karan – This dress is stunning on her and her styling is spot-on. I love the mix of silver and black and I LOVE her hair. Best dressed nom.

Leighton Meester in Marchesa – While I appreciate her bold fashion choice, her skin tone and styling looks terrible with this gold-hued dress.

Camilla Belle in Ralph Lauren – Everything about this look is perfection except the lip color. She is always stunning.

Lana Del Ray in Altuzarra – I actually quite like this look for her. The dress is flattering and the hair looks great, just not a fan of the cape. It is apparent that dark lips are hot right now.

Karolina Kurkova in Rachel Zoe – I’m sorry but I love this. It’s so bold and daring and she looks incredibly confident in it. The ‘swim cap’ is my favorite part!

Carey Mulligan in Prada – Another favorite. Carey Mulligan has the newlywed glow and her dress is playful and gorgeous. The hair adds the right amount of elegance and the cat eye black liner is perfect. Best dressed nom!

Now on to the peplum ladies – don’t forget that Solange, Emma, Sofia, and January also had peplums and they are shown above!

Amy Poehler in Fotini – This isn’t one of my favorite gowns of the night, but only because of the feathers. I love the styling and the fit and the smoky eye with bright pink lip is adorable on her.

Elizabeth Banks in Mary Katrantzou – She will probably get a lot of heat for this dress, but I find it truly couture and appropriate for the occasion. I think her toned down styling does the unique and beautifully patterned dress justice. Props to her for her bold fashion choice!

Dresses I just like or appreciate –

Dianna Agron in Carolina Herrera – Love the jewel tones, the hair and the belt. Shout out to my wedding dress designer!

Diane Kruger in Prada – This dress is so hippie chic and relaxed. The jewelry she chose is PERFECT and I love her hair. Best Dressed Nom!

Jessica Biel in Prada – I love that the dress has a menswear feel to it. I also love her hair and the lime accents on the soft pink dress. The length of the dress is slightly awkward.

Emma Stone in Lanvin – This is fun and flirty. Does my girl Emma ever look bad?

Claire Danes in J. Mendel – Claire always looks good and always keeps it simple. I love this drapey white dress, with turquoise clutch and sleek updo.

Marion Cotillard in Dior Haute Couture – While this isn’t my fave of the night by a longshot, I do appreciate the lines of the gown and the boldness of it. Her hair is a no-no though.

Leslie Bibb in Zac Posen – I always love a print on a ball gown. This color is great and the neckline is fun. Her hair, makeup, and nails are perfect! Glam alert.

Amber Heard in Zac Posen – Another great look by Zac. Gorgeous color, gorgeous lines and draping, gorgeous hair and makeup. Glam alert two!

Kate Bosworth in Prada – This is the only girl I truly think pulls off the dark lip. She looks gothic sexy in this feathery frock. Love the blinging clutch and dark nails, but not a huge fan of the hair bun.

Christina Ricci in Thakoon – She will catch grief for this dress but I find it stunning and bold. The proportions and length really flatter her figure and the tone down styling and shoes make the dress work.

Rooney Mara in Givenchy Haute Couture – I love this dress so much. I wish Rooney would wear a color besides black, but this is one of her best looks of the season. The hair and makeup are beautiful and she shows just the right amount of skin.

So my best dresses of the night are – Emma Roberts, January Jones, and Diane Kruger.

Worst dressed has got to be poor Kristen Stewart.

Who are your faves and least faves of the night? Are there any on here that I should have put up?
