Emma Stone in black faux-leather Lanvin at Paris premiere: love it or hate it?


Fifty Shades of Emma Stone? Sorry, after reading too much Us Weekly, I tend to think of article ledes in a very Us Weekly-ish way. These are photos of Emma, Andrew Garfield and Jamie Foxx at the Paris premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. They premiered the film in London on Thursday, and then flew to Paris for a Friday premiere.

Emma wore this shiny faux-leather Lanvin dress which I totally hate. I really, really don’t understand why all of the big fashion girls are falling all over themselves about Lanvin. I think the designs are almost always terrible, unflattering and sub-par in the material. It would be one thing if Emma really went all Fifty Shades and did a leather dominatrix-inspired outfit. But this just looks like a repurposed trash bag. It doesn’t fit her properly, and it’s just the wrong vibe. The shoes are Lanvin too – this is the same head-to-toe look that came down the runway. Hate it.

Andrew and Jamie look good though. Both men know how to wear the hell out of a suit, in different ways.

    I think she looked better when she had more weight on her. I didn’t really notice the weight loss until I saw her on Jimmy Kimmel the other day.

    That black garbage bag she’s wearing is awful.

    • qwerty says:

      Yeah she lost a lot of weight.

      That dress is fug but she pulls it off. Glad it;s not leather.

      • bettyrose says:

        Before I scrolled down to the picture, I was all “I”m going to like it because it’s not leather” but geezus it’s awful. Actually, I like the top, but why not go with a pencil-skirt bottom to accentuate her slender figure?

    • don't kill me i'm french says:

      Now i know who stole my garbage bag! Not the neighbour’s dog ! It’s Lanvin!

    • Ripley says:

      Oh God, she’s so skinny! Wha’ happened?!?

  2. Rachel R says:

    Looks like a bag — an ill-fitting, faux leather bag. Do not care for this look at all.

  3. ichsi says:

    I don’t hate it completely, she looks really lovely from the belt up, yes, i do think the neckline works with her super-pale skin, but below… you’re right, total garbage bag.

    • Isadora says:

      I agree. It’s rather daring, but it could maybe work with the pale skin and red lips from the waist up… I think I would have liked it much better in more body hugging sheath dress way.

  4. Jh says:

    Her hair and make-up are perfection at least. She’s so beautiful.

  5. smee says:

    That’s enuf leather to re-upholster something with! Totally unnecessary use of that material – the dress might have been o.k. in a nice fabric. I do like her shoes…………

  6. lisa2 says:

    I love her hair and makeup.. so perfect.

    I just don’t think she has the kickass personality to do justice to that dress. It just does not suit her.. Her hair and make are great as I said but wrong for that dress.

    Too over powering.

    • Lizzie says:

      I agree, I like the dress, but it’s to femme fatal for her. Maybe on someone like Eva Green it would have worked better.

  7. lex says:

    Are they still a fake couple? Have movie execs not yet come up with anything more original than “we will just force a romance between the two leads and that’s that!”

  8. Hannah says:

    I really like that dress and her styling. Am I alone?
    Agree with the weight comments, though. I don’t think she’s scary thin (yet) but a couple of pounds more would look great on her.

    • Ems says:

      Nope not alone. Totally agree with everything you said 🙂

    • K says:

      I agree with you.

    • Ashley says:

      Don’t worry your not alone. I think she looks amazing and I love how unsymetric the dress is. I also agree with the weight thing ever since 2011 she lost ALOT of weight. I doubt she gets attacked about it because she is so well liked.

      • Camille (The Original) says:

        So true. If it was another actress (that I won’t name), it would be a full on bashing/concern trolling session in the comments.

    • ds says:

      I love it as well.

    • Loveisthecoal says:

      I do love her styling and I like the dress itself, but it doesn’t look like it fits her very well. I think they should have tailored it for her a little better. LOVE the shoes!

  9. Santolina says:

    Tip for designers: Leather should never be baggy.

    • T.C. says:

      I know right? Looks awful. Makes Emma’s weight loss more obvious. Makeup and hair also not working. The yellow dress from the Paris premiere was perfect.

  10. The Original Mia says:

    Yuck! Don’t like it.

  11. lucy2 says:

    I feel like leather or faux leather designs should be sleek and simple. Nothing with folds, draping, etc looks right in that material.

  12. MrsBPitt says:

    I actually think Emma’s pulls of the entire look! It fun and looks gorgeous with her beautiful porcelain skin…

  13. A Fan says:

    Well, I’m not into the look personally, but she looks good in it…she’s young and now’s the time to wear these things – she can pull it off.

    [*Unlike Mariah Carey or Kim Kardashian*]

    • JH says:

      Yep, totally agree.

    • brionne says:

      I actually think only Kim or Mariah or some other curvy lady could pull this off. With her pale bloodless uber thin looks this dress is not only too severe…but it swallows her. She looks sickly.

  14. TW says:

    Shoes are great, dress is dreadful. Floppy bat in lovely shoes. This pretty girl needs a better stylist.

  15. LAK says:

    Goodness that dress looks like a bin liner!

  16. jammypants says:

    I never really cared for her, but she has been on point this whole promo tour. So beautiful!

  17. d b says:

    Oh good god. NO.

  18. ichooseme says:

    The step and repeat wall is upside down, right? Is that a high art Parisian thing?

  19. homegrrrl says:

    I love the dress on her, it’s drapey and vampy and interesting against her very pale skin and punk rock red hair. I’m one of those who is so tired out by short tight uncomfortable napkin style mini dresses. This girl is an established artist, and she doesn’t need to sell her lady parts on an auction block. And I love the bow tie shoes, they are adorable and look very chic and lady-like to balance this grim look. Love it all!

    • sarah says:

      Agreed, partially. I like the cut and drape but not the (p)leather material. Looks like the murdered a couch.

  20. Hissyfit says:

    At first I thought it was horrific but the more I see it, the more I like it. It’s the shoe lace/tie that I don’t like.

  21. Maggi says:

    I love it! I think she looks amazing. I love that she is so pale and not all fake tanned. Over the past few years her style has just gotten better and better. This dress is so sexy, unusual, edgy and yet classic. Gorgeous!

  22. Lili says:

    I hate it! It totally looks like a garbage bag, just like someone pointed out.

    And I actually think she looks better now that she’s lost a little weight. She doesn’t look scary thin or unhealthy or anything, just thin, which I think is beautiful.

  23. E-v-E says:

    not sure what to think.. very young Cate Blanchettish? I kind of like her, but mainly due to her previous parts that have brought me to conclusion she’s as adorable/geniuine as scripts made her be. Have not seen these Spiderman movies yet, I barely lived through previous installments. They look good together but I don’t sense any chemistry. Dress is almost typical Lanvin cut but such materials only look good on skinny and pale girls such as Emma, otherwise it would be vulgar in editorial magazine standards, I guess.
