A style icon is someone that we can look up to for their career, life and of course, fashion choices! And being a stone cold Fox certainly helps also!
Emma’s role as Jules in Superbad put her on the Hollywood radar. Granted, it wasn’t until ‘Easy A’ nearly three years later that her little star on that radar started really glowing. She’s always been the fun, pretty, goofy, and totally relatable girl. It’s hard not to imagine her like that in real life. Which is why she appeal to both the male and female audience. The girl next door, who can hang with the boys, and feels equally at home out with the girls. It’s inevitable that when you start receiving attention from Hollywood that your clothing is put under scrutiny. Not that we mind one bit, because… well… just look at her choices!
Red Carpet Ready
One of my favorite Emma moments on the red carpet is the 2010 Vanity Fair Oscar Party. The dress was fairly simple, but this was a transformative time for her. She was starting to carve out her own spot in Hollywood. Silk, strapless, maxi-dress—bonus, it has pockets! I also love the detail of the emerald earrings. I can see a certain other famous girl-next-door ‘friend’ of ours rocking this dress just as comfortably as Miss Stone.
And of course, the much talked about 2011 Golden Globe dress. Emma looks like a dream in this dress! Her newly dyed hair for her upcoming role as Gwen in Spiderman is pulled into a chic French twist. There is minimal jewelry, an very fresh and ‘bare’ makeup. Plus, that gorgeous muted coral dress! So what if it nearly matches her skin, the whole effect is very commanding without being very overwhelming. This is definitely an ‘A-list’ look!
Emma’s street looks are casual, and always pulled together. She seems to live in perfectly-fitted denim, classic blazers and coats, and the perfect knee-high boot. It’s a recipe that when followed correctly, leaves you looking like you are always in style, but never a slave to it. A perfect look for the girl next door (or jet-set celebrity) who needs to be ready at a moment’s notice. Invest in these Bandolino boots and J Brand jeans to emulate Emma’s super style.
Emma’s an actress, so of course she can pull off many faces. And the gamut of those faces have been splattered over numerous magazines since she arrived on the scene. She was bombshell with a sense of humor for GQ last year. In 2008 she played a vintage poolside vixen for Mean Magazine. LA Confidential glammed her up in 2009. And Emma got to play dress-up with Women’s Health Magazine in 2009. I will always excited to see her face on a magazine, since the girl knows how to take a picture.
Want further inspiration on how to be like Emma Stone? Well I can’t get you a big Hollywood role, or those gorgeous red locks, but I can help in the style department. And so can a few fellow Chictopians. Take a cue from Comeovertothedarkside by pairing classic boots with a basic tee and staple leather jacket. Or use her fun Comi-Con look as inspiration, like beware_of_my_heels. Albeit, our little Chictopian’s look is the slightly more naughty version, but you get the idea!
