Emma Stone in Armani at ‘La La Land’ AFI Fest premiere: cute or too peplum-y?


Here are some photos of Emma Stone at last night’s AFI Fest premiere of La La Land, the film which MAY earn Emma a Best Actress Oscar. Unlike her Oscar nomination for Birdman (a film which I hated), Emma really wants this one. You can feel it. She started campaigning for it early, back in the late summer film festivals. She’s been very available to press outlets and she’s been playing the game really well. I expect her to ramp up her campaign in the next month, get a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in a Musical/Comedy, win the Globe and then march ceaselessly towards the Oscars.

For this AFI Fest premiere, Emma’s look was not on fleek. She wore an Armani Prive dress which… I would have been okay with it, begrudgingly okay with it, had the styling been stellar. The styling is the worst though. First of all, I’ll never understand Emma’s undying affection for awkward peplums. Chica LOVES an awkward peplum, the more unnecessary, the better. But the real style-nope of this look is her hair. Did she just get out of the shower? This is how my hair looks after a shower.

Meanwhile, Emma was asked about Donald Trump’s election victory recently and Emma – a Hillary Clinton supporter – said Trump’s win was “incredibly painful.” But she’s trying to stay positive, saying: “I think it’s a real wake-up call and chance for us to all unite and do the very, very best we can to speak out and be brave.”

    What’s going on with her mouth? Or does she just make that face?

    • QQ says:

      i wonder the same thing , I think is expression ( a La Sour face Kaley Cuocco “sexy pout” type thing??)

      Either way everything about these clothes and hair and makeup is Incongruous… Looks like a prom 86′ outfit but she took too long doing garish makeup and now she has to go to prom with Wet hair in a knot

    I’m getting Lindsey Lohan vibes 🙁 something to do with her makeup? mouth?

      I think something has been up with her for a while. Since her mom got sick at least. She’s got watery, glassy eyes and a bit of a red nose. I hope she’s doing okay. I really like her.

        Way back when I used to read CDAN to while away my coffee break, they used to code her in their blind items as “quietly troubled actress”, and another site (can’t remember which) coded her as “fragile”. They were all revealed blind items, so no ambiguity as to who they meant.

      That’s what I clicked on to say! I think it’s a combo of mouth and hair that looks like Lilo

    Is it velvet??? If so, I like it without the peplum and shower hair.

    Ooooof, the hair.

    Love the shoes. Dress, hair, not good. Whoever did her makeup did her no favors, either–eyes and lips are done too heavy and matronly, although I guess that is in keeping with the dress.

    Yes! Birdman was not good. Fell asleep in the theater. Waste of a Valentine’s day date for certain.

    I honestly would be really really really really shocked if she didnt get a nomination. Not only has it already garnered her some awards but this is the kind of movie that the Academy will eat up.

    Emma’s giving me Marg Helgenberger vibes. In that one pic, she looks just like her. Not that’s a bad thing, Marg is beautiful. I like anyone with red hair but my fav is Jessica Chastain, followed by Amy Adams, Emma Stone, Bryce Dallas Howard, etc. All beautiful women with gorgeous red hair.

    Dress is just odd. I don’t get it. The sleeves are weird and is that really a peplum? Looks like a child’s pool inner tube stuck on her hips. Who designs a dress to make a woman look thicker in the middle? WTF? And her hair is so bad. It’s like my hair on weekends where I have nothing going on and DGAF about what I look like.
