She has a figure that makes her stun, whether in a girly mini-skirt or a Goth gown. Her fearless glamour has made her among the most sought after celebrity in fashion circles.
In the short time she has been on the limelight, the La La Land star has adopted an evolving fashion style that has kept her at the top, year in year out. Apart from her clothes, Emma’s refined artistic sense has given rise to drastic hair styles, slick shoes, and equally stunning accessories. In keeping up with this beauty’s red carpet style, here is a look at her fashion flashback: Emma Stone’s best looks.
A Winner’s Look
What does the best actress in a Motion Picture wear? If you ask Emma Stone the answer is Valentino. While riding high with the musical comedy La La Land, the actress stepped to the stage to receive her award at the 2016 Golden Globe Awards wearing a dress with a plunging neckline. This was a push from her usual somewhat conservative look.
The much talked after look also came with an equally stunning diamond collar necklace. While her movie swept the awards with a record seven wins, for all the categories that it was nominated for, Emma’s fashion for the day became the envy of many. The winning look also featured a hairdo which was drawn back into a beautiful chignon.
This look, which is considered to be one of her best to date, came complete with sparkling earrings that matched her dress and its star-shaped decorations.
Dark and Sparkly
Among the looks that Emma has rocked over the years is the blend of dark colors with an assortment of sparkly sew-ins. Such is the dress she wore at the 2017 Miss Golden Globe. The piece was from Michael Kors collection. The bejeweled black dress was a spot on look for her third nomination in the awards.
In line with her character in the film Mia Dolan, her dress captured the fairy tale and musical aspect of the feel good movie. Being the highest paid actress at the time, she turned eyes at the red carpet with shiny jewels running the whole length of her dress. The frock also had an 80’s feel with stylish shoulder pads and ruff waist. High heels and a medium wavy cut completed the Arizona-born actress.
Gothic Cut Out
From pink to bright yellow and back to dark colors, that is the wonderful fashion world that Emma lives in. For the 22nd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards, she decided to give critics something to talk about by adopting a gothic look. She lit the red carpet with a black halter neck gown that swept the floor. The gown by Roland Mouret was a stunner thanks to sparkly embellishments and V- shaped patterns.
She kept her high-parted wavy curls that showcase her green eyes and full lips. Her choice of lipstick was a stunning red shade that complemented the gothic look. She kept off bling and went for tiny Cartier earrings and let her silhouette shine instead. The event was held in Santa Monica on Dec 11, 2016, which made the look one of the best for the star’s end of year red carpets.
Bright and Yellow
Being a former child actress, Emma still keeps up with the girly side of fashion. This was the case with her looks at 2016’s The Hollywood Reporter’s Annual Women in Entertainment Breakfast. The iconic star stole the show with a yellow shift dress that was a few inches above the knees.
The costume was unmistakably bright with an equally bright red girly wallet to break the yellow hue. The bright color was laced with golden embellishments that run across the front, reaching just before the waist. Her nail polish matched the color of her ankle strap high heels- another major aspect of her iconic fashion sense. Again she kept up with her medium wavy curly hair which slightly covered her left eye.
For the 2018 Oscar Awards, Emma did a complete turnaround with her fashion statement. Off went the dresses and up came a broken suit. Fresh from winning an Oscar in the previous year, she graced the red carpet with a Louis Vuitton suit. The Oscar red carpet saw her wear a black pants with matching pumps and a red blazer.
Her bling collection was showcased with a stunning ring worn on the pointing finger which matched a pink bow tie around the waist. She also wore sparkly earrings that brought her green eyes to life. The look was completed with a vibrant mix of pink, purple and orange eyeshadow. Her mid-length bob hair brought out a lovely classic look, whose deep side part showed her full face.
Pink perfection is what the E! Online magazine named Emma’s look at the 2019 Golden Globe Awards. This was during the very first week of the awards and the actress set the bar high with a pink flowing dress. She was a hopeful for the best supporting actress award. This was for her role in The Favorite, a 2018 comedy drama where she played a baroness living in the 18th century England.
Her choice of a long-sleeved gown with silver beads was a true red carpet photo magnet. The fun tone of the dress was a fashion flashback right from The Great Gatsby, a 2013 movie. The scalloped sequins of her dresses were also complemented by a gentle Hollywood wavy hair, which was parted to unveil a beautiful face.
The look and beauty also matched with her makeup, which comprised of pink-colored blush and a pale pink lipstick. This was statement that even redheads a can pull off red and pink shades.
As Rachel Goodwin, her makeup artist for the event put it, “My mood for tonight’s (awards) makeup on Emma… I wanted to pay homage to some of my favorite queens of Hollywood’s golden age.” She went to add that, “the look was very peach-inspired”

Writing about the look, Allure magazine had this to say; “There’s a lot going on when it comes to Stone’s dress: a one-sleeve situation, floral print, and ruffles that, when styled with the right complementary accessories, make the look fun and modern, perfect for daytime with a pair of tights and long coat, or for evening with strappy sandals and bare legs.”
