We may love a look done with brights, but we’ve certainly been enjoying the plentiful black and white looks we’ve seen on the red carpet as of late. Emma Stone (actually in black and beige), at the MTV Movie Awards in Martin Grant, Alexa Chung, at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in Moschino, and Kristen Stewart, at the premiere of Snow White and the Huntsman in Stella McCartney show us the best if the best in this trend.We could totally see Alexa’s mod dress working for day or night in our wardrobe.

Leighton Meester looks haute not hippie in a tie dye dress by Versus at the premiere of her new movie That’s my Boy. We love the string detailing on the right shoulder and the pretty blue hues in the fabric. In true Leighton fashion she gives the look an edge with her embellished and sheer Jimmy Choo heels.
It was some time last summer when we began taking note of actress Emma Stone’s exceptional red carpet style. Appearance after appearance, her sartorial choices began to stand out amongst her stylish peers. Along with her gorgeous clothes, there was always a stunning beauty look to match, whether it be a bright fuchsia lip, a dramatic cat eye, or her ever-changing hair color ranging from sultry red to sunny blonde. Let’s take a look at some of her most memorable red carpet looks of the past year.
Last July, Emma’s color blocked Giambattista Valli top and skirt worn to the NY premiere of Friends With Benefits was the look that first put her on our fashion radar. Skillfully contrasting red and fuchsia with a fashion-forward peplum skirt made her a true standout. Shortly before that, she wore a sheer lace Bottega Veneta dress to the 2011 MTV Movie Awards. It was black lace again for the NY premiere of Crazy, Stupid, Love in a stunning dress from Tom Ford. For the UK premiere of The Help last October, Emma turned heads in a floor-length polka dot gown by Luca Luca.
Proving that she doesn’t need a gown to make an impression on the red carpet, Emma wore a chic take on the lady tux from Gucci to the 2012 People’s Choice Awards in January. The emerald green jacket perfectly offset her trademark red hair. At the Golden Globes later that month, she looked every bit the glamorous movie star in a custom-made plum hued gown from Lanvin. A custom-made Alexander McQueen dress was her pick for the 2012 SAG Awards.
In March, Emma looked fresh and young on the orange carpet at the 2012 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards in an Antonio Berardi top and skirt. Last month, she was the lady in red at the Schiaparelli and Prada Costume Institute Gala. Her flirty Lanvin dress featured hand embroidered crystal flowers custom made by designer Alber Elbaz. This past weekend at the MTV Movie Awards, Emma’s stunning peplum top and skirt from Martin Grant landed her on many best dressed lists.
We look forward to watching Emma Stone’s flawless red carpet style as it continues to evolve!
We think its tremendous popularity is proof that the 2012 Corolla offers the ideal blend of comfort, value and safety. In it, you’ll find a surprising number of high-end features, like available Display Audio system. It offers remarkable performance and fuel efficiency, plus an impressive list of standard safety features. Factor in its legendary reliability, and it’s even more apparent that Corolla is the smart choice.
