I love Emma Stone to death. She’s pretty. She’s funny. She can act. She’s everything we wanted Lindsay Lohan to be post-Mean Girls. That being said, she looks a damn mess on the cover of February’s W magazine.
I understand the beauty of dressing down in fashion magazines but this is just a whole different story. Photographer Juergen Teller, who can make anyone look like a recovering meth addict, doesn’t do Stone any favors in this spread. Of course, the styling and hair deserve just as much blame. I don’t get this trend of letting your roots grow out. That isn’t ombré; it’s sloppy.
The clothes in the spread aren’t any better. The only remotely appealing piece is the black and white Balmain dress but even that just looks sad in this dreary spread. I guess the creative team behind this does deserve some credit. It’s quite a feat to age a 23-year-old woman to look as if she’s nearing 50.
