Going La La For Emma Stone
No doubt about it, Emma Stone is totally at the top of her style game. Used as a benchmark for old-fashioned Hollywood glamour (thanks to her Oscar-worthy role in La La Land), Emma is actually so much more versatile than she is often given credit for. In fact, look harder and you’ll see how the starlet manages to give weighty lessons in color, fashion, and style. We’ll leave no stone (sorry!) unturned as we unravel just why editors, journalists, and designers alike are going la la (not sorry!) for the celebrity style of Emma Stone.
Beyond the Girl Next Door
Maybe it’s her position as Spider Man’s dependable love interest that earned Emma her girl-next-door status. In fact, we can’t think of a celebrity we’d most like to have as our “bestie” and yet, look a little further and you will see that Emma’s embracing of fashion is anything but suburban.
“My mom always told me to do what makes me happy and ‘dress for me’. I was lucky, when I was young, to have a female role model in my life that was very much about me being myself. And with beauty and fashion, it’s supposed to be fun and experimental. I like the individuality of it all.”
First up is Emma’s embracing of hemlines. You only need to take a walk through the fashion archives to see that Emma loves a mini, a midi and a floor-length gown equally – and it’s her ability to mix her style up which makes her signature style so hard to define – she turned-up at the Golden Globes in a jumpsuit with a train! The key to Emma’s style is to keep them guessing, so throw away any wardrobe staples that stop you from experimenting.

Remember the rules that said that red heads could not do red or green? Emma scoffs at them all in scarlets, emeralds and a whole hooray of hues that die-head colorists might say break all the rules. Emma’s on-duty style has included mustard minis, coral slip dresses, pink prim collar dresses and purple asymmetrical dresses.
To channel Emma’s flirtation for color, throw away the rule books that say you can and cannot wear certain colors. If you don’t feel comfortable in all over hues, experiment with color blocking and bold and vivid prints which are set to be “de rigueur”, come Spring.

Totally Trend Aware
Above all, Emma stays totally on top of trends; but the joy is in her subtlety. At the premier of Irrational Man, she paid homage to the 90s in a white column dress and silver choker, while previous trends have included lace and corsages – in a nod to the romantic trend currently infiltrating the runway.
Emma gives us a great lesson in how fashion trends don’t always have to be in your face. So, before you shy away, remember you can stay trend-aware, and that the secret is all in the detailing. Seek out accessories that can propel an outfit right into dizzy trend heights with ease.
