Emma Stone stepped out in Brian Atwood stilettos and a beaded Chanel outfit for tonight's Beverly Hills premiere of The Help. Emma was joined on the red carpet by the entire cast of ladies, producer Nate Berkus, writer Kathryn Stockett, and director Tate Taylor. The film, based on Stockett's best-selling novel, takes place in the South and all of the stars couldn't stop raving about their wonderful time on and off the set tasting Mississippi's finest delicacies. Allison Janney and Viola Davis, who share most of their screen time with Emma's character, joked about bonding with Emma over pieces of pie and good old Southern cooking. Mom-to-be, Bryce Dallas Howard was also on hand for tonight's fete, and dished about developing a Southern accent for the role and what she's doing to prep for her second child.
It's been a busy month for the entire ensemble. Emma kicked things off last week in NYC, where she talked to David Letterman about her "boozeless" visit to the White House with costar Octavia Spencer. She then returned to LA over the weekend to present Taylor Swift with a neon surfboard at the Teen Choice Awards. Emma was drawn to the project as a fan of the novel, and said she's really proud to be part of a project with such a strong group of women, much like her mother and grandmother — stay tuned for more of what Emma, Viola, and the rest of the cast had to say in tomorrow's PopSugar Rush.
