Emma Stone in mustardy Roland Mouret: pretty or fug?


Emma Stone and the cast of The Help are attending the Deauville Film Festival, and these are some photos from the opening night ceremony, and from the photo call for The Help. I guess The Help hasn’t been released internationally yet? Sure. Emma wore Roland Mouret for the opening ceremony – that’s the mustardy-brownish gown. She wore the short black & white Dolce & Gabbana for the photo call. First, thoughts on the Mouret? I think Mouret is just trying to change things up because he’s tired of Victoria Beckham copying everything he does. But I do like the style of the dress – it reminds me of what Ungaro was doing a decade ago, and I really liked Ungaro back then. My only complaint is the color. In the South, we refer to that color as “baby sh-t”. Why not red or blue or green or white? Eh. The D&G is cute though. At this point, I consider it a “win” when Emma isn’t wearing some weird biscuit dust ruffle.

Speaking of Emma, did you read The Daily Beast piece on Emma’s rise in popularity? The guy who wrote it says that Emma is so popular these days because she reminds us of Linnocent, and Emma basically has the career that Linnocent should have, if Linnocent hadn’t snorted her opportunities years ago. I don’t agree with the piece at all, but it’s an interesting theory. Go here to read the piece. The Hollywood Reporter also has a decent interview with the cast of The Help in Deauville here.

    i just love her hair and am tempted to die it that color all the time. she’s just so pretty.

  2. carrie says:

    the color is nice on her but i dislike the cut
    NB: i believe Roland Mouret worked or works with Victoria Beckham on her fashion line

  3. brin says:

    Don’t care for the dress but her shoes are awesome!
    Putting Emma in the same sentence with Crackie is blasphemy!

  4. serena says:

    Linnocent was never this smart or humble (and let’s say it: she isn’t and wasn’t that beautiful).

    ANyway I hate the first baby-sh*t dress..ugh she doesn’t have breast so it sucks on the upper part..it seems too large. But I love her hairstyle and makeup on that one.

    The second one is cute, but I’d like to see a different style on Emma.

  5. Caity says:

    To an extent, i agree with the article (emma = pre-crack lindsay).
    In easy a, emma is channeling lindsay in mean girls..
    I know it’s hard to remember, but lindsay used to be a decent actress, no cate blanchett, but not terrible either.
    Emma’s acting skills are probably on par with 2003 Lindsay, except emma decided to work and have a career, instead of being a crackwhore

  6. Maritza says:

    She looks lovely! I saw the movie “The Help” and it’s really very good. Viola Davis did such a great job, I wouldn’t be surprised if she wins an Oscar. The rest of the cast did great as well. If you haven’t seen the movie go watch it, I love it!

  7. gloaming says:

    It looks like Roland was designing a Kimono and at the last minute thought better of it.

  8. kiko says:

    the dress does nothing to me but the shoes are amazing!!!

  9. Nick says:

    She sweet but some photos for it looks like lindasy lohan

  10. Nick says:

    I love she with kieran culkin but she alone just looks sweet.

  11. luls says:

    OMG the brown dress may be meh, but the shoes shes wearin with it, SO HOT!!!

    I like the white n black dress though :)

    Whether she’s prettier than linnocent in her pre-crackie days is debatable. (dont shoot me pls)

  12. i.want.shoes says:

    The mustard dress isn’t bad, but the fit on her is not right. Love the shoes!

    The D&G dress is so boring.

  13. Call Me Al says:

    very nice choice for the dress. i’d like to have one.

  14. CallieTrichid says:

    Does this mean Lindsay is going to sue Emma now?

  15. gee says:

    Linnocent doesn’t have her talent, sorry. Mean Girls was only good because it had a good WRITER, not bc of the throw away ‘talent’ that starred in it.

  16. cara says:

    I don’t think she’s popular cause she’s lindsay 2.0. She’s popular because she’s cute enough for boys to find attractive, but not overly cute where women are threatened.

  17. Juliet says:

    I like Emma Stone but I’m gonna have to go with fug

  18. tapioca says:

    Can you believe she had a choice of beautiful dresses and said, “The one the colour of sun-baked dog poo, that has flaccid collars, pancakes my boobs, gives me Ke$ha’s waist and has a broken fan belt tied around the waist. That’s the one!!”

    The only connection I get to Lindsay is the red hair, but I love the idea of Li-Lo & Dina at home reading the article and wondering how they can sue Emma for stealing her career.

  19. Green_Eyes says:

    LOVE her, LOVE the shoes, HATE the dress & color…..

  20. The Original Ashley says:

    The dress is fug, especially considering RM usually does these tailored, flattering pieces that make a woman look insanely gorge (rumor has it Posh stole his patterns for her line). It’s an ugly color, ill fitting, and the bow actually makes it worse (if that was possible).

  21. Statler says:

    Baby sh-t, really? How gross. This makes me glad I grew up and live in the North, because I love this color. At least on my monitor, where it looks more like dark gold than mustard (always thought mustard color had a faint green undertone, rather than the orangish-brownish tone seen here). Agree with the poster who said the pattern is a kimono fail.

  22. Leigh says:

    As far as I’m concerned, she somehow always pulls off these looks. I think she always looks fantastic. And the comparison between her and Linnocent ends at the hair colour and their voices.. Lilo never had this much talent. She had potential, but not the raw talent and comedic timing that Emma Stone has!

  23. CG says:

    Her body language in the pics with her costars is weird. She looks very stiff, esp in that last one. It’s like she’s trying to pull away from them.

  24. Sheigh says:

    Looks like her bust is not big enough for a perfect suiting and the mustard color with her carnation and her hair is too insipid for me. So, she needs a more nervous style. And the D&G babydoll, once again with her carnation, patatra, would better on Blake Lively, Miss “never dress up once she woke up”!

  26. SamGirl says:

    I love Viola Davis, but in the pink dress her boobs are screaming for mercy.

  27. bettyrose says:

    It’s hard to imagine Lindsay ever being as smart and put together a young woman as Emma seems – but actually in “mean girls,” she did have the early signs of being an intelligent young woman. Definitely Emma isn’t as innately sexy as Lindsay, but spunk can be just as appealing as curves on the right woman.

    But the point of that HR article is that a well-raised young person who finds their own path as an adult will do better than a pimped out child star. That’s really just common sense, but Hollywood can hardly forgo casting children.

  28. sandy#1 says:

    agreed, her dress is nothing to write home about, but those shoes!!!! very nice indeed.

  29. Nick says:

    Before she datas with kieran culkin???

  30. Amanda says:

    ew I don’t know really know. Im undecided.

  31. GeekChic says:

    @SamGirl, I’m glad I’m not the only one who noticed that. Viola looks amazing in the red dress, but the pink one must just be torturing her poor boobs.

  32. Liz says:

    The colour is glorious on her but the dress itself is ugly personified. The shoes rock and she’s such a pretty girl.

  33. lrm says:

    lohan actually had talent and IMO was quite attractive….
    Meryl Streep was quoted as saying she was a ‘remarkable raw talent’….
    so, yea, she is so many things on the negative side and not a likeable person, either-
    BUT….she was talented and not just in mean girls [she was great in freaky friday and I have kids so I have seen it more than once, as well as Herbie which I know was not a hard role, but still, she was natural and believable]….
    I find her better than many of the other young girls out there…..even if they didn’t ‘crack out’.
    That said, LILO is done-put a fork in it.
    for sure.
    but anyway, i wish the emma dress were more mustard or more gold, but less brown either way. the brown tone of it takes away.
    I love the style almost kimono rather than kimono fail. I love that has pockets, and I think her chest is too small for that particular dress-they needed to have adjusted that part b/c it looks odd and too roomy at the bust.

    i have not seen her in any films yet, so i cannot comment but will take jim carrey’s word for it. LOL

  34. Camille says:

    Emma *is* the new LL, but in reality they don’t have much in common. It is mainly just that Emma took the ‘gorgeous, cutesy redhead’ position that LL left.
    I look forward to seeing Emma’s career progress over the years, she seems to have a much more level head on herself than LL ever did.

    Emma is just adorable, love her.

  35. Mrs. Harrison Ford says:

    Love the shoes, hate the dress.

  36. Elizabeth says:

    @ Nick
    I think “fug” means f**king ugly.

  37. k says:

    That is one of the top colors for this fall. I see it everywhere. I personally like it.

    Emma is leagues above Lindsay; she has real talent and humility. I hope she remains this grounded throughout her career.

  38. Blithe says:

    the color is wonderful on her but the dress looks totally budget.

  39. taxi says:

    I don’t like the style but that color is good on her. Kind of matches the freckles.

  40. Charlotte says:

    Hate the dress, love the shoes. I’m sure Jim Carrey has a boner looking at these pics.

  41. Gretchen says:

    I like the concept of the dress, with the sort of kimono-esque obi belt thing going on, but because of her smaller bust i think it needed a bit more tailoring not to swamp her and sag around what she isn’t really filling out. And the colour..why??? She’s a beautiful red head, go for luscious greens and blues!!

  42. Ashley says:

    I DO NOT understand the LL and Emma comparison. Everyone talks about how “talented” Lindsay could have been. IN WHAT? Freaky Friday and Mean Girls? She has TWO movies where she was praised.

    Whereas Emma Stone has shone in some way in every movie she has been in. It straight up confuses me.

    Clearly Lindsay was not that talented if she managed to destroy all the goodwill and connections she had. People would put up with her BS if she had such “natural” talent.

  43. Belly says:

    I say pretty. The colour is gorgeous on her. I’d wear it. Actually, really quite like it!

  44. dahlia1947 says:

    I like the style but it’s too long. and the shoes are killer!!

  45. Stubbylove says:

    A rare miss for Emma. Love the shoes though on the 2nd pic.
