Emma Stone wore a hideous peach Louis Vuitton while picking up a BAFTA

Emma Stone won the Best Actress BAFTA last night. For Poor Things, Emma has now won the Golden Globe, BAFTA, Critics Choice and at least a dozen critics awards. Everyone said Lily Gladstone was the Best Actress frontrunner, that she would sweep all of the awards… and it’s not actually happening. Emma caught fire at just the right moment during the awards season and I really believe that she’s going to win her second Best Actress Oscar. Sort of hilariously, Emma is not dressing like she’s the frontrunner or like she expects to win. She’s a brand ambassador for Louis Vuitton and LV has given her some of the most hideous looks for months. Her BAFTA ensemble was, in my opinion, the worst look yet. This peachy monstrosity looks like someone reworked a bridesmaid’s dress from 1986.

Sandra Hüller also wore custom Louis Vuitton and she’s also being screwed over by Emma’s momentum. Huller is SO GOOD in Anatomy of a Fall, it’s one of the biggest f–king injustices that she’s not a bigger Best Actress contender this year. At least her LV is better than Emma’s.

Also in Louis Vuitton: Cate Blanchett. Cate has been doing some kind of one-woman sustainability challenge, rewearing so many of her old gowns to various red carpets for several years now. This gown is new and it’s not great, although I do like the color.

The last of the LV girls was Phoebe Dynevor. She honestly got the best dress and that’s crazy! Louis Vuitton dressed two of the Best Actress nominees and they gave the cutest look to Phoebe!

    Emma usually goes weird though. Wouldn’t be surprised if she turned down the white dress.

    • Josephine says:

      I have not seen the movie but is she doing some sort of homage to the movie? I actually like the color on her and don’t even hate the huge sleeve. The bottom of the dress irks me though.

      • SarahLee says:

        I think that’s what she was doing early this season with her awful makeup. Thankfully, she looks like Emma Stone again. Emma in a very bad dress. Question for those in the know – can these “brand ambassadors” turn down a look that they dislike?

      • TRex says:

        It looks like a duvet! WTH?!

  2. equality says:

    Cate’s looks like there is a large unzipped zipper in front. Emma’s look would be okay if it lost the giant sleeve and the weirdness at the hemline. Sandra’s dress looks like draped curtains at the top. Phoebe at least looks normal, but nothing spectacular. LV thinks this will sell?

    • Yup, Me says:

      All of the parts together look like they were inspired by a 1980s prom night terror. Emma’s is the prom queen’s dress. Sandra’s top is what became of the repurposed curtains in the old limo/hearse. Cate’s shoulder pad event are the arm rests inside the car.

  3. SarahCS says:

    ‘Better’ is definitely relative. Likewise ‘best’. All of these are bad IMO.

  4. It was a hideous 80’s prom gown with a shoulder pad shelf to put her award on.

  5. Miranda says:

    There is no such thing as a “good” LV dress. I’m sure of it. Even the “better” ones, like Phoebe’s, are simply boring rather than outright hideous.

    • Brassy Rebel says:

      Louis Vuitton should stick to luggage. And Sandra Huller’s hair looks like mine when I get up in the morning. 🫣

      • Miranda says:

        I thought her hair looked like some sort of odd creature with pincers creeping over her head to attack her face. Someone help her!!!!

  6. helonearth says:

    Emma’s dress looks like someone just cut up a duvet cover with matching curtains and stuck them randomly together.

  7. Juliana says:

    I gasped when I saw Emma’s dress and not in a good way. It reminds me of the prom dresses from the movie, Pretty in Pink. Even those dresses are better than this. Just awful. They’re doing Emma dirty.

  8. MsIam says:

    It looks like the bottom of Emma’s dress is trimmed in material left over from a bedspread. The white dress is definitely the best of this bunch.

    • maisie says:

      I thought the same. It looks like the underside of a bedspread. Like they didn’t have enough fabric to make it long enough. Should have used the sleeve. Sandra’s dress was too weird-the top looks like the kind of curtains you have in a Winnebago.

  9. Jp says:

    Oh wow, I saw the top half of Emma’s dress and thought, “That’s not so bad”…then I saw the bottom half and the buttons down the side. Yeesh. That’s really terrible. She’s gorgeous, and she still looks great- or at she does from the neck up.

  10. CC says:

    Stone’s dress is similar to the costumes worn by her character in the film, so that might be the rationale.

    • Lightpurple says:

      Came to say this. The hideous dress is similar to something her character Bella Baxter would wear

    • AmB says:

      So to mangle another saying, we shouldn’t attribute to malice what might more easily be attributed to … ineptitude?

      It’s hiddy either way.

  11. Genevieve says:

    Emma’s dress is dreadful. I’m guessing that it’s meant to evoke some of her costumes in her movie. But yikes. Awful.

    Sandra’s dress is kind of cool. It makes me think of Golden Age film stars. But the neck line throws it off for me; that straight horizontal just is not pretty. (Also the waistline just looks like bad craftsmanship.) But it had potential.

    Phoebe’s dress is lovely, obviously, but pretty basic, imo.

  12. Bre says:

    It’s giving peaches and cream Barbie.

  13. ML says:

    Phoebe is the only British actor of the 4–maybe LV gave her a home field advantage? I like her dress, but I don’t like how the seams were sewn.

    Emma’s dress is absolutely not my style. However, LV got the color right—Emma sometimes wears colors that suck the life out of her. Someone needs to get her a different dress using these colors.

    Sandra’s dress is okay. Cate’s isn’t my style either and I feel that she can usually make a lot of looks work whereas this doesn’t for me.

    • VoominVava says:

      I also thought Emma’s dress was a gorgeous colour on her. I had a good laugh about the 80’s bridesmaid dress comment, I was in my cousin’s wedding in 1987 in a peach taffeta dress but it had both puffy sleeves and a big bow on the back. I LOVED it then, at 13 LOL

  14. Lucy2 says:

    I don’t like any of these.

  15. Libra says:

    My picker must be off. I love the peach dress and think she carried an “event “dress very well. Also love the white dress.

  16. Mia says:

    Emma’s dress looks like something I made in home economics class.

  17. Hexicon says:

    I worked in a shoe store in the mall in the 80s, back when dyed-to-match shoes were a thing. I had to dye so many bridesmaid and prom shoes in peach. There are some once-trendy colors that should never make a comeback.

      • Blithe says:

        Dusty rose! Let us not forget about dusty rose.
        My particular dusty rose bridesmaid’s dress came with a matching headpiece that included poofs of tulle and a veil. (fwiw: I lived out of town and wasn’t able to attend the meeting with the bride when the other bridesmaids had their say)

  18. Rainbow Kitty says:

    Emma’s dress is awful, IMO. Her hair and makeup are gorg tho. And I think the peach color looks great on her. This is one of the best hair colors she has had.

  19. Blithe says:

    I scrolled down, placidly assuming that “hideous “ was an over-exaggeration. Nope. It wasn’t. I remember seeing those catalogs of bridesmaids’ dresses where you mix and match pieces and features, and then they make up the dress. I guess one enormous lopsided pumpkin of a sleeve is better than two of them? I’m having trouble, too, with the “…and make it orange!” part. This dress reminds me of the SNL David Pumpkins skits.

  20. Flamingo says:

    All these dresses are fugly – the least fugliest is Phoebe’s dress. But it looks ill fitted and a 1/2 size too big for her.

    I get most of the actresses understand this is part of their job. But do they have any veto power when working with these brands?

    Yes, I would like a giant orange sherbet dumped on me and don’t forget the poofy one shoulder. Fabbbuulllouuussss!!!

  21. MissMarirose says:

    There was an article that came out noting that the BAFTAs haven’t given a Best Actress BAFTA award to a black actress . . . ever. So, in my mind, Emma’s “win” over a WOC who has otherwise won a bunch of other awards this season doesn’t mean jack.

    Congrats to Emma on her white supremacy award, but for me, Lily is still the frontrunner.

    • Anisha says:

      Reading this comment makes me question if worms for brains is a true thing. Emma and white supremacy award? WTF? Emma has had an immense amount of critical support and precusor wins coming into this. She didn’t just waltz in and grab an award that was meant for someone else. Gladstone wasn’t even nominated first of all and to think that somehow Emma “won” over her (which she didn’t because again, Gladstone didn’t get a nom) is stupid. Emma won because she gave the best performance of the year. That’s all.

      Folks in an uproar over Gladstone losing steam is fine. But she didn’t give some tour de force performance that is unequivocally great or better than Stone (or even Fantasia in The Color Purple).

  22. Lady Digby says:

    Kate would definitely wear this dress in different colours: it is that fugly!

  23. sparrow says:

    And that is 100 per cent why I hate peach. How awful.

  24. Ameerah M says:

    IS Sandra’s LV better than Emma’s? I don’t think so. I think they’re both hideous just in different ways. Cate has the best LV out of the three- I actually like her dress and I love that it’s a rewear. Phoebe’s dress is so utterly non-descript as to have been made by literally anyone. It’s a design we have seen a thousand times over. Pretty, but basic.

  25. Gabby says:

    Oh Emma. That dress looks like it has a big tumor/elephant man thing on the sleeve. And what is with the horizontal detail along the bottom hem? Is that to distract us from the sleeve? Fire your stylist and deduct the fee from this event.

    Here is what to ask youself before wearing peach:
    Is it 1984?
    Am I a suntanned teenager?
    Then no.

  26. LeahTheFrench says:

    I’m sorry but at this stage LV’s looks for Emma are firmly in comic relief territory. This is just abysmally bad.

  27. Lizzie swain says:

    The stitching on fabric over balloon sleeve was so unprofessional. The whole dress was a disaster. Just lucky smEmma Stone can carry any outfit. Sorry but this really let her down
    Emma deserves better.

  28. Kirsten says:

    I actually think Phoebe’s dress is the worst — it’s ill-fitting and kind of shapeless.

    The color of Emma’s dress is perfect for her, and from the waist up it’s magical. The sheer skirt with the super heavy hem is where it falls apart. When I first saw a close-up photo that mostly just showed the sleeve, I thought this would be a mini dress all made from the brocade fabric.

  29. Lisa says:

    Emma is going to win the Oscar and that just makes me sad, I was rooting for Lily.

    • Tamron says:

      Personally, I’m stoked if Emma Stone wins. She probably doesn’t need it because she’s one of the biggest movie stars in the world but she gave my absolute favorite performance of the year. Gladstone was good but nowhere near a lead performance and I did not walk away from KOTFM thinking of her performance (I thought De Niro was the MVP).

  30. original_kellybean says:

    I just came to say that I am so glad Emma is back to the darker hair. It is so much more flattering on her than the blonde. And I don’t care if it’s her “natural colour”, the dark red/brown has always looked best on her.

  31. Sasha says:

    I mean ok, the dress is not.. conventional. Or flattering. But it’s on theme with her film and from the neck up she looks beautiful! I remember her last Oscar winner look was so sensational. I wonder if there are any last minute changes to her wardrobe going on behind the scenes now she’s picking up so much momentum.

    • LTA says:

      Agreed, on all counts. It’s definitely theme dressing but that’s not necessarily a bad thing…Margot has been theme dressing all season, but that hasn’t really irked anyone because cosplaying Barbie inherently means you’re going to look “conventionally pretty.”

      In general, I’m a little taken aback by all the vitriol being thrown at Emma for campaigning for her movie. I understand the support for Lily–both for the quality of her performance and the historic value of a potential win–but I don’t quite get what people were expecting from the awards season. That the other nominees would just sit out the campaign? If anything that’s deeply offensive and condescending to Lily, as if she’d can only win the Oscar thanks to her white co-nominees’ benevolence. I think everyone involved deserves more credit than that.

  32. February pisces says:

    I have no strong feelings on Emma’s dress, but her make up is terrible. The undertone of her lipstick is too cool and makes her look ashy. Her makeup for the golden globes was so good.

    One thing about Emma’s dress is that it was very sheer under the lights when she collected the award, you could see her ass on stage. Obviously that’s the look, but for leading actress at the BAFTAs, I don’t think is entirely appropriate for that event.

    I think for nominees and those who are favourites to win awards, you have to rethink your approach to styling completely. If you win, that’s you big moment that you’ll watch back in decades to come. That outfit has to transcend decades and be timeless, and not something that is a current trend.

    Phoebe dynevor was nominated for rising star and her look is very classic and timeless.

  34. AprilUnderwater says:

    My thought process:

    1. [Headline] Ouch, that’s harsh. Can’t be that bad surely.

    2. [First picture] You know, I think that it is a pretty colour. And that sleeve detail is epic, definitely don’t hate it. Wait a second, wtf is with that line of fabric buttons down the other side…?

    3. [Second picture] Oof, that waistline is… not great. That is such a harsh transition and combined with the sleeve AND the buttons I am feeling overwhelmeddddd OH MY GOD WHAT IS THAT? QUILTING? AT THE HEM?

    4. IT’S F**KING SHEER TOO?!?!?!?

  35. Ladiabla says:

    Why would LV do this to her? Does she not have any say in the dress, or is it always an “it’ll be fabulous, dahling” kind of thing? I haven’t seen Poor Things but is it an homage to the movie? I mean, I sure hope so. And I disagree about the hair too, it’s too dark for her.

  36. Avery says:

    Emma’s dress is so hideous and it bums me out because she’s absolutely GORGEOUS. What happened to her killer style from back in the day? Remember the yellow Versace? The incredible Lanvin gowns? Please free her from this contract!

    That said, I’m rooting for Emma for the Oscar. Poor Things is my #1 film of the year and she gave one of the best performances of any year. Ya’ll need to get over it because Gladstone didn’t even have the top 5 performance of the year (Huller did, so I’d root for her too). I’d say the nomination is the win for her because she wasn’t even the best part of Killers of the Flower Moon.

  37. Angela says:

    I love Emma’s dress (the sherbet is so beautiful), but I also love her dreamy steampunk wardrobe in the film, so maybe I’m not the best person to ask!
