Emma Stone versus Lea Michele, who looked better at the Glamour event?


Here are photos of Lea Michele and Emma Stone at last night’s Glamour Magazine Women of the Year event. Lea was obviously the one who enjoyed being photographed, as there are more photos of her than nearly anyone else on the red carpet. She was posing her ass off in this Jenny Packham gown. I basically only know Jenny Packham as a designer because the Duchess of Cambridge has worn a few Packham pieces, so now I associate the label with frilly, frothy princess-wear. That association probably pleases Lea to no end. While I don’t hate this dress on Lea, I’m not really in love with it either. It’s just kind of boringly pretty. I do think Lea’s wearing too much makeup though. The red lips are overkill.



Meanwhile, Emma Stone was probably one of the best-dressed girls at the event. She wore this off-yellow-gold-green Lanvin that photographs wildly different in different light. She did not pose her ass off in this dress, which is a mistake! I would have liked to have seen this look from different angles. And while I’ve yelled at Emma several times over the past few months for getting it so wrong so often, I think this Lanvin is a win.

    lea has really pretty hair

  2. Cherry says:

    Emma’s ruining everything with her terrible posture. Stand up straight, kid!

  3. Claudia says:

    Ah, what a waste of a dress on Lea! She wears pretty things, but most of the time it’s the dress wearing her. Can you imagine Charlize Theron in it? Now THAT would be phenomenal.

  4. Julie says:

    Don’t like Emma’s look. Lea looks good.

  5. Jackson says:

    I really like the dress LM is wearing. Yeah, kind of boring but definitely pretty. But I also agree the red lips are overkill and also a bad shade of red on her. She needs to find a good neutral shade and stick with it. I love Emma but she looks slouchy and messy and I think the bodice of the gown doesn’t fit her quite right.

  6. jen says:

    i don’t get why everyone thinks Lea is so ugly, i think she’s actually really pretty. Yeah her nose is a little big but I think that adds some appeal.

  7. podzol says:

    In a showdown between Lea Michele vs talented actress, I’ll always pick the non-Michele option. Emma’s dress is magnificent too, nonwithstanding the poor posture.

  8. mia girl says:

    Emma Stone’s dress = yes
    Emma Stone’s shoes with that dress = NO!

    For once, I like Lea’s look.

  9. Bermuda Blues says:

    Emma Stone looks better.

    Lea Michele never looks good.

  10. Jackie says:

    Emma wins this one hands down. Lea always looks a little contrived and uncomfortable and that is certainly the case here. Even though she is well styled and looks very put together, the outfit just doesn’t seem to work with her as a person, ya know? Emma is flawless (maybe this is just my ginger bias kicking in) in that gown. She is radiant and nobody can pull of chartreuse! But she can! And her accessories are amazing, I love her odd ball handbag.

  11. gee says:

    Lea Michelle’s dress and make up are like exactly what I want for my future hypothetical wedding.

  12. normades says:

    EMMA! Fashion forward dress vs. seen it all before (Lea).

  13. danielle says:

    I think the Lea looks great, and I’m not usually a huge fan. Emma’s dress is pretty, but I don’t like the overdone copper eye shadow and she does need to stand up straight.

  14. Charmander says:

    Lea’s dress would look a million times better on Duchess Waity.

  15. Stubbylove says:

    Yes – Emma is back with this look – amazing! But girl has GOT learn to stand up straight. And as always Lea Michele makes me want to slap a bitch.

  16. aenflex says:

    how is this even a question?

  17. INeedANap says:

    Since I am as tall as Lea I don’t want to say it’s bc she’s short, but certainly her gowns always wear her. I am going to say it’s bc she is trying so hard that she can’t be natually confident in such elaborate gowns. But girl! You are tiny. If anyone could rock the spunky, loud cocktail dresses, it’s you.

    As for Emma…love LOVE the gown, but she needs to work it!

  18. ruby says:

    Am I the only one that gets a kind of bridal vibe from Lea’s dress ? And I hate her makeup. Ugh.

    As for Emma, aside from her posture which could do with some work, she looks cute. I’d definitely say she looks better than Lea.

  19. Happy21 says:


    My sediments exactly. What is with Emma’s posture and the stupid look on her face. I love her but what the hell? You can’t even really see the dress because her posture and stupid smile takes away from it.

    In that case, Lea is the better dressed gal 🙂

  20. mary simon says:

    what’s with the middle aged lady beads -hate that look on young girls.

  21. lucy2 says:

    Like both dresses.

  22. sam says:

    Both dresses are stunning!

  23. Dudette says:

    Don’t like Emma in that dress. Her posture isn’t helping either. I really like Lea’s dress, even though I can’t stand her. Jenny Packham is a great designer.

  24. jane16 says:

    I like Lea’s look much better. Gorgeous dress. Emma’s look is cluttery somehow, too many seams, chains & def don’t like those weird shoulder knots. Or the color.

  25. laura says:

    Ff you guys didn’t notice EMMA WAS WALKING when those shoots were taken unlike LEA who stopped and posed! btw Emma looks much better she has fashion forward sense not same old sameo like Lea

  26. PleaseICU says:

    I like Lea’s dress more than Emma’s but I’d actually *love* the dress on another person. Lea’s so determined to be seen as a fashionista that she comes off desperate and too try hard with these fabulous clothes wearing her instead of her owning whatever look she’s wearing. Until she finds her natural confidence these stunning clothes and styles are going to be wasted on her and they’ll always be wearing her.

    The bodice of Emma’s dress seems a bit illfitting and the shoes are a bit meh with the outfit but overall I love her style here. I do wish she’d stand up straight and work on her posture. But she just exudes this natural charm and confidence that is so appealing.

  27. pinns says:

    Leah looks like she has put on a little weight? I think that’s a good thing as it changes her face shape and she doesn’t look like she is trying to pull her tummy out through her spine here.

    But poor Emma looks like she is worried the breeze is going to give her cameltoe, and wants to get indoors as fast as she can!
    If you audio-described it to me, her dress should be revolting, but it’s amazing and she looks great in this!
    A couple of nice ‘posey’ photos here:

  28. Rachel() says:

    Why are there just pics of them walking, here? It makes both dresses look awkward and horrible. Emma’s looks really pretty in the link pics, when she’s just standing.

  29. Kara Ann says:

    I think both women look very good. Emma Stone is talented and beautiful. Lea, I’ve never watched, but she does come across as very try-hard. Anyway, to each their own style and they both worked it.

  30. Ranga says:

    I like the first girls’ better.

  31. erin says:

    i like lea’s dress, LOVE emma’s dress, HATE emma’s sh*tty posture.

  32. JaneWonderfalls says:

    Emma, I think the color is flattering on her skin tone and red hair, yeah her poster sucks but she really made the dress her own. Lea Michelle, I feel she looks okay but I don’t like her for being a snobby vegan hypocrite who wears leather shoes…but I think she looks basic, she doesn’t stand out to me, anybody could wear that dress and look better.

  33. Saddie says:

    Is it possible to get a monthly update on Emma?
