Emma Stone in Louis Vuitton at ‘The Favourite’ BFI LFF premiere: stunning?

London Film Festival The Favourite Premiere

Here are some photos from last night’s BFI London Film Festival premiere of The Favourite, an interesting-looking dramedy-farce/period piece. Olivia Colman stars as Queen Anne, a neurotic mess of a monarch. Rachel Weisz plays Lady Sarah, who runs the country, and Emma Stone plays a young, charming lady who befriends Lady Sarah and the Queen. Hijinks and palace intrigues ensue. It actually looks like a great movie and I’m really looking forward to it. I’m looking forward to it despite the fact that few of the ladies are really making the promotional tour into a fashion show. Emma can always be counted on to wear something worth discussing, but the rest of the cast? My lord.

Emma Stone wore this silver Louis Vuitton gown – I like the simplicity and minimalism of this dress, and I like that it acts as a more neutral palette for the drama of Emma’s makeup. That being said, I think she was too heavy-handed with the makeup. Did she need silver eyeshadow AND burgundy-black lips? No, she didn’t.

Olivia Colman also wore silver, and this is possibly the most unflattering thing I’ve ever seen. I don’t need to see Olivia in some va-va-voom gown, but she definitely needs something with more structure. This looks like a potato sack.

Rachel Weisz gave birth to a baby girl recently, and this is – I believe? – her first postpartum appearance on a red carpet. She has that look of “I’d rather be home with the baby.” Her dress is Alexander McQueen and I imagine she wore it because it was the first thing she tried on that fit.

And finally, here’s Joe Alwyn. He has a supporting role in the film, and he wore a Prada suit to the premiere. His dodgy facial hair has gotten longer since we last saw him. It’s not a good look. I think maybe he’s one of those guys who worries about having a baby face so he tries to grow a beard but it comes in all patchy and gross, so it would probably just be better if he shaved and continued looking like a 16-year-old. Also: I find it hard to believe that Taylor Swift would EVER greenlight a neckbeard. Please give Tay some credit.

    It’s not bad at all without the neck beard. Plus Taylor probably got tired of people saying to her, “Oh, is this your little brother?”

  2. Maum says:

    Wow Rachel looks beautiful.

    Emma looks like she’s wearing one of those rollup mattresses you put under your sleeping bag when going camping.

    Love Olivia but why she thought that dress could work in silver is beyond me.
    Literally any other colour and/or fabric would have worked.

    And Joe looks like he’s glued pubes to his face.

  3. Vexa says:

    I love Emma’s look overall and I’m really feeling the dress in principle, but the fabric seems weirdly thick and stiff? I feel like if she took it off it would stand up on it’s own.

  4. Lee says:

    I think Emma looked amazing! She gave me old Hollywood vibes with this Vuitton outfit.

  5. Annie. says:

    I like the beard on Joe. Also, a neck beard can be hot haha

  6. Loretta says:

    Emma looks like the female Joker. Awful makeup.
    Rachel is gorgeous and Olivia is so lovely

  7. Jess says:

    Joe’s “beard” is gross. Love Emma’s dress but hate the makeup. Can’t wait to see this movie!

  8. Jane says:

    I love Emma’s makeup with that dress. It kind of fits the vibe of the film too.

    Colman loves unflattering sacks, so get used to them.

  9. dans le metro says:

    Like the dark lipstick, hate the rest of the makeup, quite like the dress but it is doing terrible things to her chest area.

    Joe Alwyn looks more like Taylor Swift now than before growing the facial hair which is an odd thing to happen.

  10. Beth says:

    Emmas so pretty, but her lipstick is a little harsh. Black/burgundy lipstick with all that pale makeup and silver dress makes her look like a vampire

  11. lobstah says:

    Joe looks like he’s starring in a cheap remake of Just One of the Guys.

    • Anname says:

      He may be growing it out for his next role? Let’s hope it’s something he has to do rather than a style choice. It’s really awful.

  12. Esmom says:

    I think all three ladies look lovely, I think Rachel’s is actually my favorite dress.

    As for Joe, the only thing I hate more than a double breasted suit is a double breasted suit with a mock turtleneck. Yuck.

  13. ValiantlyVarnished says:

    Emma looks stunning. I love the dress, the hair, the makeup. All on point.

  14. SWP says:

    One thing I have to say for Emma, bad dating choices and overratings from performances notwithstanding: she’s fun on a red carpet. You never know what she’s going to wear. But chances are, it will pique your interest and catch your eye. So many people these days are boring and safe and well, she def isn’t!

    Now if we can just retroactively give her an Oscar for something OTHER than La La Land….she was better in Easy A in my opinion!

  15. Lex says:

    Lololol Joe and his turtle neck is so artiste beatnik nonsense

  16. Case says:

    Emma looks beautiful — I LOVE a dark lip, and she pulls it off so well.

    Joe desperately needs that beard to give his face some…visual interest. And to not look like a teenager. Even if it’s a patchy beard, I think it’s necessary.

  17. Anon says:

    Joe’s beard appears to be for a role. He’s been growing it out since he was cast in Harriet, the Harriet Tubman biopic that started shooting last week in Virginia. He’s been filming the last 2 weeks and apparently plays a slave owner.

    • Dara says:

      Maybe. But if young Mr. Alwyn is aiming for Civil War era facial hair fabulous-ness, he has fallen woefully short. I’m thinking the hair and makeup people on the film took one look at him when he showed up on set and made an emergency request to increase their “stunt hair” budget in order to get him ready for his close-up. The gentlemen of that time period didn’t mess around. They were exhibiting Trumpian levels of hair sculpting – only on their faces. https://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/who-had-best-civil-war-facial-hair-180951965/

    Emma’s makeup artist should be arrested.

  19. Pandy says:

    Emma’s dress looks like those windshield sun blockers and she looks thick in it .Won’t start on thst nasty lipstick.

  20. Steff says:

    Unless Emma is wearing platforms, she must be 5’7 or 5’8 and not 5’6 like she’s listed everywhere, because Rachel is 5’6.

  21. Milla says:

    Rachel is stunning. All i got.

    • Lady D says:

      The first time I saw her was in The Mummy. Both her and Brendan Fraser were incredibly good looking in that movie. She was stunning, especially when she smiled. Almost 20 years later, she’s still just as beautiful.

  22. Fluffy Princess says:

    Emma should have been all about her lips, and her eyes should have been neutral. Pretty cool dress, but as everyone said, it looks so stiff.

    So THAT’s Joe Alwyn. My goodness he is pretty. His poor pube-y neck beard though–ugh. His hair reminds me of swirly frosting, it doesn’t help his pube neck beard–like they are at odds with each other. I think his hair should have been more spikey or “hard” looking to do along with that douche-beard. Patchy beards are just not cool. I don’t care who wears it.

  23. Tina says:

    I saw the film this afternoon and it’s great. Really funny and bawdy. All three are fantastic. Highly recommended!

  24. SJhere says:

    OK, I just came to say that if I was Rachel I would have stayed home and been relaxing.
    Might just be me but, child birth was very difficult for me and if I could have I would have taken extra time and rested up more. More rest and a much longer leave from work.

    Rachel is a naturally beautiful woman and she looks lovely here.
    Emma is wearing far too much makeup, and her dress is made of some really ugly stiff looking fabric.

    No idea was the 3rd woman is. And so that is Joe Alwyn, all I’ve heard of him is he is Taylor Swifts current BF. His hair looks very overdone, and no one looks good in a turtleneck/suit combo. Ever.

  25. Totally Old says:

    Emma’s dress looks like a mother of the bride dress with the beginnings of a having a thick waist. I realize she probably has to wear LV but surely there was something a bit more flattering and girl please, fire your make-up artist.

    Joe Alwyn reminds me of a 80′s lounge lizard guy. Not a good look.
