Emma Stone Splash News Online (3)

Who: Emma Stone

Where: At the London premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man 2

What She’s Wearing: A marigold-yellow Atelier Versace dress with matching Swarovski crystal beading on the shoulders and waist, plus a David Webb necklace featuring two lion heads with emerald eyes

Why She Nailed It: If a picture is worth 1,000 words, then please allow this gif at left to provide 3,000 words for us while we gape at this truly showstopping ensemble. Until now, Stone’s been sticking to menswear-inspired outfits and mod minis on her press tour, so the impact of her hitting the carpet in this incredibly romantic, curve-skimming gown is doubled.

She wisely let the bold color and open back keep the focus, adding only a chic jeweled collar and delicate sandals. And the hair and makeup are on point; the siren waves and just-bright-enough lip give her a glamorous ’40s vibe that really works for her. In fact, if you turned these photos black-and-white, you might mistake her for a real old Hollywood star — but then we’d miss out on the stunning shade of the dress.

Tell us: What do you think of Stone’s outfit? Are you as big a fan as we are?

She looks like a taxi cab. Beautiful dress, awful color.

Is there anything she doesn’t look good wearing? She can pull off just about any style and color. I’m totally jealous. Lol
