It is a tradition for me to watch all the movies that I think will be part of the Oscars’ race and as soon as award shows take place and the most relevant contenders become pretty much evident, I draft a list of the potential winners in my mind and I am not afraid to say that I think actress Emma Stone is headed for multiple wins.

Apart from the fact that the themes of her new movie do resonate with me as a woman, I also know the lengths she is willing to go to portray a character in a story.

This is was prompted me to write today’s article, which–I can assure you–will be full of little details that will make you understand that Emma is as multifaceted with her work as she is with what she wore to the New York City premiere of “Poor Things“.

For the much awaited event, Stone donned a custom pale yellow Louis Vuitton gown, inspired by the sheer mini tank beaded dress she embodied for the Maison’s Fall-Winter 2023 campaign (don’t forget that she has been an ambassador since 2017). A crystal flower necklace complemented the look.

The dress was hand assembled and embroidered using metallic wires encrusted with crystals and mother of pearls, adorning the organic pattern of layered tulle.

Emma‘s makeup was ethereal and inspired by her character in the movie. Her friend and makeup artist for the occasion, Rachel Goodwin, described her as “a woman who feels incredibly at home in her own skin”.

The pro further explained: “Dewey see through foundation, dark brown flick of liquid eyeliner, and berry stained lips. I wanted every aspect of this makeup to have an element of transparency to it. The kind that doesn’t cover up but rather embellishes her own natural beauty.”

Goodwin partnered with Pat McGrath Labs , here is a product breakdown if you’d like to replicate the look at home (the list is courtesy of the brand and the MUA and slightly edited for clarity):

– Skin Fetish: Sublime Perfection Foundation in ‘Light 2‘;
– Skin Fetish: Sublime Perfection Concealer in ‘Light 1‘;

Stone‘s hair was styled in a ‘deconstructed twist’ by Mara Roszak, who in an interview with Vogue explained that she was also inspired by the actress’ character in the film, stating that: “Bella is very youthful, to say the least. We wanted the hair to be clean and elegant, but not too sophisticated or serious.”

Since the actress had just gone back to red for the premiere, Roszak focused on color preservation and hair health, using her own line of RŌZ products to make her hair look shiny and put together.

For more information about her hair color, you can check this Instagram post by her colorist Tracey Cunningham.

The beloved redhead’s short nails were painted with a milky nail polish. Emma often works with a specific manicurist but for the sake of accuracy we won’t update this space till we have a clear confirmation of the name.

I loved this look since the first moment I saw it and I also knew where its inspiration came from because I was already familiar with Emma‘s presence in the French maison’s ad campaign.

Of course yellow is a great contrasting color for a red haired woman and the “La La Land” actress is someone who doesn’t shy away from joyful and colorful ensembles. She wears Louis Vuitton pieces like an armor, and as I always say if you read this website, I think it is no small feat and exactly the way Ghesquière would like it to be.

Also, I just noticed that I’ve been writing about Nicolas quite a lot lately, but I think it is a testament to his complex and mysterious nature as a creative. You never know what you’ll get with him.


Poor Things is a 2023 black comedy fantasy film directed by Yorgos Lanthimos and written by Tony McNamara.

It is based on the 1992 novel of the same name by Alasdair Gray.
