Emma Stone at Revlon Makeup Launch 2012

Emma Stone Makes Us Question Our Darker Winter Palette (in a Good Way)

Emma Stone certainly knows how to turn up the heat on her red-carpet appeal, but what she does best — her now-recognizable way of making even the simplest of pieces look utterly chic — comes, well, naturally. And at yesterday's Revlon Nearly Naked makeup launch appearance, she applied this au naturel styling stance to a polished nude-and-gray Daniel Vosovic raglan-sleeved dress and peachy Rupert Sanderson pointy-toe pumps. While most of us are pulling out our turtleneck LBDs, cable-knit sweater dresses, and charcoal gray layers, the Gangster Squad starlet is pulling a Spring-hued fast one on us. It's a refreshing (not tacky) look that already has us reconsidering our natural inclination to put away those lighter-colored staples as soon as the weather cools down. The only catch? We're pretty sure that it's not actually feasible to go bare-legged in subzero temps, so we're adding our own necessary wintry twist to her inspired look. See below for three of our favorite ways to outfit a nude-toned number. It's a seasonal win-win á la Emma Stone, if you will.

  • We love the idea of juxtaposing luxurious texture with a more masculine boot. Thus, our first styling adventure has everything to do with wearing a longer faux fur gilet (in a darker hue, preferably) with opaque wool tights and a lace-up wedge boot. It has the perfect balance of femininity and glamour, all while being a little bit rough around the edges, thanks to a more structural shoe choice.
  • Go the tough route with a slicker combination of accents. Pair a leather moto jacket with flat patent leather oxfords. Then, if you're feeling extra sassy, try on a plum-hued lip color, too. It definitely plays to that borrowed-from-the-boys vibe, but with an altogether light and airy dress slant.
  • For the classic style setter, this one's for you. Since the dress is not the most traditional of Winter colors, we think it's more than OK to stick to a darker palette — clean lines included — elsewhere for the finished look. A gray tweed car coat (or a no-fail peacoat silhouette), black suede pumps, and tights are the perfect ladylike offset.
