Emma Stone in black Gucci for the Paris ‘Spider-Man’ premiere: awful & terrible?

OMG, these photos are so BAD. Poor Emma Stone. Poor Andrew Garfield. I really do feel like The Amazing Spider-Man is going to be a blunder – perhaps a well-made, well-executed blunder, but the box office is going to suck. That’s just how I’m feeling right now, and God knows, I’ve been wrong before.

Anyway, these are photos of Emma and Andrew at the Paris premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man. I think their styles are telegraphing the film’s bad performance. While I’m not strictly opposed to a stylish man wearing a maroon Balenciaga suit on a red carpet, that man better be Robert Downey Jr., not Andrew Garfield. Instead of looking stylish, I think Andrew looks like a cartoon. He simply doesn’t photograph well – I know I say that about a lot of people, but seriously. Andrew is a good-looking, talented young man, and he’s simply not photogenic.

As for Emma… she went for this completely horrible Gucci. This is making me long for the Elie Saab jumpsuit from the UK premiere, and I really didn’t care for the Saab either. SHE LOOKS AWFUL. She was once a beautiful, spunky, ginger standout. And now she looks like every other too-skinny Hollywood blonde. The blonde hair washes her out. The black washes her out. The blood-red lipstick is a mistake. This whole thing is a catastrophe.

    The styling seems very French. I’m OK with it.

  2. RocketMerry says:

    True, Andrew looks much better on film than on pictures. I have a similar problem, my face is bony and I get tense when I see a camera, so my pictures tend to be bad.

    As for Emma, I dislike her. She kept saying for a long time that this acting thing was a temporary, that all she really wanted to do was being a baker… look at her! She wants the glamour, the red carpets, the press, the gigs

    And I think Andrew Garfield totally buys into whatever she says, ’cause he’s a sweet, caring boy who’s going to get hurt. There. I said it.

    • Amelia says:

      I completely agree with everything you just said about Andrew. I used to be a big fan of Emma, now I’m kind of lukewarm. I don’t completely buy into the ‘I’m so goofy/clumsy/sweet’ thing.
      Also out of interest, how do you define someone as being a photogenic person? Because I think Andrew looks really good looking (barring the suit) in these photos.

      • RocketMerry says:

        Oh, I don’t think he’s bad looking here, he just looks much, much better in films (and I suspect he looks much, much better in real life, too).
        How nice must it be, knowing that even when you’re not your best-looking you still look good?! :)

      “As for Emma, I dislike her. She kept saying for a long time that this acting thing was a temporary, that all she really wanted to do was be a baker.”

      I hate when actors say sh*t like this. In another recent interview she said she wanted to go back to school and study biology. Please.

    • Raven says:

      ITA with just about everything you said. And agree with Kaiser: just used to be so adorable and different, now she looks scrawny and used up, like all the other kate bosworths’ out there.

  3. marie says:

    I’ve said it beofre and I’ll say it again, go back to red already. Also, I don’t think the dress is horrible but I think the makeup makes it look worse. That lipstick is a horrible choice..

  4. hairball says:

    It looks like there are bats flying around her. Why is she blonde?? She looks way older then she is.

  5. Meggie says:

    She pulls off candy-goth wayyyy better than Katy Perry-I don’t actually hate this look on her. She looks sassy.
    Side note: I dont care if it’s rubbish-I want to see The Lizard! He was one of my fav spiderman villains as a kid

  6. Rhea says:

    She looks different in this premiere. Still a pretty girl but almost didn’t recognize her. At picture #4 she looks much older! If they only put that picture alone, I wouldn’t guess if it’s Emma!!

  7. Jade says:

    That blonde hair is washing her out completely! She needs to go back to that lovely red shade….

    The dress is a hot mess & Andrew G is just not attractive.

  8. Hautie says:

    I have to look at it this way.

    Emma looks great for a premiere. I love the dress, the shoes and the blonde.

    The makeup is done for an event and not everyday use. So I can live with it. She pulls it off.


    For a everyday look. She is gorgeous as a auburn. And it suits her much better. The blonde is too cold looking for everyday wear.

    And oh good grief.

    That is a unfortunate color suit on Andrew. Just down right tragic. But it has a nice cut. It fits him well. It is just a well cut suit, in a ugly ass material.

  9. LittleDeadGirl says:

    She looks dead as a blond. Not a good look on her and I think he’s cute even in picture though he looks better on film. He cannot pull off the red suit though. Or if you’re gonna go with a red suit I don’t know about a blue shirt. It just doesn’t look right on him.

  10. Louise says:

    She’s blonde because it’s her natural hair colour.

  11. NeNe says:

    I like her better with red hair. I do not think blonde looks works for her.

  12. Electra says:

    I agree. I wish she’d go back black! But, this look works. Maybe a more natural or pink tone to her lipstick would’ve made this look a bit less cumbersome.

  13. normades says:

    Awful. She should be wearing red and he should be wearing black. Plus it looks like they had 2 different stylists that should have consulted with each other. Fail.

    • Jill says:


      She also looks like she hasn’t eaten in a week and has the pale, gross skin and bitch face to prove it.

      Smile, you jackass! You’re rich, famous, dating that guy, and according to CDAN, banging Sean Penn on the DL.

      Okay, maybe thatlast part is why she looks so bad. :)

  14. Kaye says:

    She almost looks like Rachel McAdams in one picture (another pretty woman who looks better with darker hair IMO).

  15. lisa says:

    Every time I see him I think of Anthony Perkins.

    I actually like the look on her; but it does make her look older. I think the blonde hair is for a film.. but I thought it was her natural color…not this but she is blonde.

    I don’t like what he is wearing but don’t hate it. It just looks like they are going to two different premiers. Just not cohesive.

    They are a cute couple. But he just doesn’t seem like her type. But he is funny and a bit “bad boy” in interviews.

    sorry I miss Tobey.. :(

  16. ramona says:

    I LOVE Andrew G. in that suit. He’s a total fox. 10/10.

  17. johnnybadboytapia says:

    ehhhh, this girl does nothing for me, i love the dress but she cant pull it off she looks kinda like a corpse!

  18. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I feel like it takes a special kind of person to pull off the high-fashion-goth look. Emma is just not right for it. Helena Bonham Carter, hell, even K-Stew could pull off this look better than Emma.
    Andrew Garfield has the most punchable face.

  19. Liberty says:

    His suit as a red carpet choice reminds me of the forced “flame” dresses for the Hunger Games red carpets… Otherwise I don’t mind it, kind of EU. Her look, ech. Her stylist needs to think again.

  20. Ming says:

    Someone exorcize Elizabeth Banks out of Emma Stone.

  21. Vera says:

    I really like it…

    I saw these one tumblr a few hours ago and when I read it was the French premiere I just through it looked so very French. I really love her hair here (colour I’m fine with, but I’m mainly talking about styling). The dress is nice and the lipstick is working with it. If she’d opted for her normal over-done eyes then it could have been bad, but I think it works. But she does get washed out easily.

    Andrew looks like Andrew. I think I just see a lot of their pictures on tumblr so none of this looks really different.

    Also, and I may be wrong, but I thought Emma was naturally blonde? I think I read that somewhere or someone said that…but I’m nearly certain she isn’t a natural redhead.

    One thing I am noticing more in these than the other photos I saw is that she has a very expressive face and in the shots where she hasn’t fully posed she can sometimes look a bit off (I’m thinking specifically about the last one where her eyebrows are a bit comical).

  22. Molly says:

    She’s one of my home town girls… love her no matter what!

  23. Jackie O says:

    i think she looks great. it pulls her in the right direction…unique, interesting, serious player.

  24. lisa says:

    Wow this is an eye opener. I don’t follow a lot of celebs. But I had not expected the negative on Emma. But I guess every celeb gets it.

    Nice to know actually

  25. I.want.shoes says:

    Girl needs some vitamin D! She looks like a corpse.

  26. Az says:

    Why is he wearing the same outfit Gwyneth Paltrow wore to the 1996 VMAs?

  27. Really? says:

    How come she can stick her leg out like that and nobody says anything, but when Ange did it, the “leg” took on an life of its own?

    She’s cute, but the dark lipstick: ick.

  28. bagladey says:

    She looks fine, nothing wrong there.

  29. Sillyone says:

    Holy hell it looks like she dipped her entire body in powder. She is ghostly white.

  30. velourazure says:

    dress: yes. lipstick: no.

  31. Jackson says:

    Ugh. No. Ghostly. And this look ages her terribly.

  32. Chloe says:

    dude she has to have blonde hair while promoting a movie in which she is blonde. It’s like when Katherine Heigl was promoting 27 dresses she had to wear a wig to all the press junkety things so people would recognize her character.

  33. Jenna says:

    Bleh. She looks like some black widow. But I actually kind of like the dress. I just think it’s the hair and make-up…I don’t know.

    I do want to see this version of Spiderman though! :)

  34. Blue says:

    I don’t mind the outfit, but she looks so miserable. I miss her bubbly personality and the red hair. Even though blonde is her natural colour but it does nothing for her.

  35. sup says:

    i have been missing real lipstick, dark hues on lips since the 90′s. love her dress too. the puffy hair, not so much.

  36. Michele says:

    I really miss Emma’s beautiful red hair. I know she’s a natural blonde but she was so suited for the dark red shade she wore in Superbad, Zombieland and Easy A. Like everyone else has been saying, she now looks like all the other bland, blonde actresses in Hollywood. I also don’t like the dress. It’s too busy and ages her. I miss the old pre-Spiderman Emma.

    I think Andrew is handsome but that suit is not doing anything for him. Did he wear the red and blue combo to look more like Spiderman?

  37. annaloo. says:

    Gwyneth is going to lay claims on that red suit that Andrew Garfield is wearing in about 4…3…2…

    here’s a link:


    “Oh, I did the red suit thing way way long ago… blahblah…”

  38. Edith says:

    I looooooove Andrew’s red suit!

  39. hairball says:

    Did he borrow that suit from Robert Pattinson?

  40. Pedge says:

    Sorry, she looks f’ing AWESOME.

  41. Paul Frehley says:

    And this is why Emma Stone will always be better then Lindsay Lohan.

  42. Jessica R says:

    I am not even worried about the dress… I can’t make it past her awful make-up job. WAY too much. She is so much prettier than this!!

  43. dizzy says:

    I don’t know…Maybe her make-up is too strong, but I really like that dress.

  44. Lisa says:

    Agreed re: the likely low box office take. I feel like we *just* had a Spiderman in theatres, which I realize was Spiderman 3, and was terrible, but still.

    I noticed on IMDB that Christopher Nolan is writing a new version of Superman AND another “Untitled Batman Reboot” that’s supposed to come out in 2015.

    Apparently, Hollywood has decided the answer to its problems is to just rehash superheros/comic books repeatedly.

    What that town doesn’t seem to understand is that the public needs to be at least a *little* bit hungry for a remake. I know I need at least eight years between reboots of the same character to remain interested. The only exception is Bond.

    • Sparkly says:

      This exactly! I so, so agree with you. And I love superheroes!

      As for Emma, I’m really torn. The pics are just all over the place. I don’t really care for the makeup job at all and her current hair color is too bright for the look…but I can understand going with something a bit different for a Paris premiere, and she’s working the HELL out of it in that last pic. Hair swoop and all. Yeah, there’s nice leg, but she’s not hands-on-hip cocking it out. That last pic looks effortless and lovely, but when I saw the second pic, I thought, “Whoa, she kind of looks like Marg Helgenberger there.” And I love me some Marg, but it’s not Emma’s best look at all. There is something off about her, and I think it’s probably weight. Unfortunately, I kind of had the same thought as Jesstar.

  45. Lisa B. says:

    Are you guys f’ing kidding me? She looks beyond awesome here.

    I’m so glad she’s finally going for more grown up looks.

    She’s getting way too old for the bubbly girl thing. It was starting to annoy me, actually. The whole “look at how cute I am” schtick. Too Zooey Deschanel like for my taste.

    And I don’t miss the red hair at all. The blonde suits her just fine.

  46. Marianne says:

    I love the dress. It looks like spiderwebs…which I guess is probably the point since this is Spider-man. Kind of like the gold dresses for Jennifer Lawrence for The Hunger Game Premieres.

  47. Jessica says:

    Wow. I totally disagree. Emma always looks great to me, this is no exception. Dude looks great also. I have a flair for the dramatic so this speaks to me I suppose…

  48. storyteller says:

    She looks terrible. Ghostly pale and dark goth make up, with the blonde hair that washes her out. You can look “French” without looking dead. I’m pretty indifferent to Andrew Garfield so I’m all ‘whatever’ where he’s concerned.

  49. maggiegrace says:

    Hate the blonde. Looks like Rachel McAdam’s little sister. Love the makeup. Bleh on dress.

  50. shaboo says:

    I do agree that Andrew looks better in motion but I don’t think he looks awful in photos. I think he looks really good here and the suit looks great.

  51. G says:

    Another “look” for her. In don’t love it, but I don’t think it’s fatal. She’ll live to walk another red carpet.

  52. Carrie says:

    does she want to be casted in a Tim Burton movie?

    i can see her with Johnny Depp

  53. pinchofsalt says:

    She can pull off any look. Lovely.

  54. Luffy says:

    Ehh not really impressed with either of them. I do prefer her as a red head though. Is it it just me, or has she lost some weight? I feel like the hair and the makeup really age her.nisnt she in her 20′s? In some of these photos I could swear she’s at least 40. I think if she were to gain some weight and go back to red she would look seriously improved. I know some people said she’s a natural blonde, but probably not that shade. It just does nothing for her, but to wash her out and make her look lifeless.

  55. B says:

    Actually, I think that Emma Stone looks fantastic here. It’s the best she’s looked in a while, IMO. I guess I’m weird. I’m not as big of a fan of hers as I used to be though.

    Andrew Garfield didn’t make the best fashion choice, but apart from that, he looks nice. I like him.

  56. mar says:

    I could not hate it any more then I do. YUCK!!!

  57. mar says:

    she looks exactly like Summer’s mom from the OC here. I think it was Summer’s mom, or somebodys mom.lol

  58. Billy says:

    I miss the old Emma. That ate.

  59. Jess says:

    What happened to the Emma Stone of Easy A? I miss her and her beautiful red hair so much! And she looks far too old here.

  60. ashendust says:

    Where did her freckles go?

  61. A says:

    AWFUL. I love Emma too. She needs to put on 10 pounds and dye her hair back to red. She also needs to lay off the makeup.

  62. carly says:

    i love the dress, but the make up is horrible, she is not that edgy, or punkish to pull the look, leave that to Kristen please :)

  63. the H says:

    She looks gorgeous no matter what she wears. Period.

  64. Katie says:

    I prefer Emma when she’s marching to her own drum, but I don’t think she looks awful here. What’s awful is that red suit that Andrew is wearing. Can someone please explain why he’s cute?
