Emma Stone rocked the red carpet in an emerald green gown for the 2012 Critics Choice Awards. Looking every bit the movie star, he dress upstaged the sleek and sophisticated more casual look of Angelina Jolie and rivaled Meryl Streep. While some felt the dress choice was a bit over the top for the event, star celebs dressing up and looking as pretty as she should only be complimented exponentially. So, even though she did not win an award for her role in The Help, she still knocked it out of the park when it came to creating her own red hot fashion statement. Cheers to the green celebrity!
Emma Stone appeared at Thursday nights’ Critics’ Choice Awards. Broadcast on VH1, she wore a dazzling emerald green gown. The fance evening dress even had a slight train. While some fashion critics felt the ball gown was too dressy for the annual event (like the folks over at the Washington Post) fans of the star celeb thought she looked red hot.
Even though Emma Stone did not win an award, she upped her star power by wearing the dazzling dress on the red carpet. It was a gorgeous gown. It’s no wonder that the cast of The Help, in which Stone starred, was chosen for Best Ensemble.
Stone (who we hoped would win an award for the dramatic work) was not one of the award winning actors. She was upstaged by co-stars Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer for their roles in the comedic drama depicting the lives of black maids in the 1960s South.
Green celebrity Emma Stone played Eugenia “Skeeter” Phelan in The Help. Stone’s role helped set the tone of distinction between the haves and the have-nots, according to the Brad Blog. The role demonstrated the extent to which racism infected Mississippi life (and Southern life in general) in the 1960s.
As an aspiring writer, Phelan (Stone) was chastised for possessing a copy of the state’s segregation laws. She is warned “Believe it or not, there are real racists in this town. If the wrong person caught you reading this, you’d be in serious trouble.”
The up-and-coming actress and humanitarian (Superbad and Friends with Benefits) was not recognized as a Critics’ Choice; but given the surprise favor the film has garnered, we’re excited that Stone quickly may be catapulted into the spotlight for her ties to the film. As a humanitarian star celeb, Stone has supported Stand Up to Cancer and appeared with the World Wide Orphan’s Foundation‘s 7th annual charity benefit last November.
Also a pet-friendly humanitarian, Stone has signed on with fellow actress Olivia Wilde to join Revlon in encouraging stars and fans alike to choose cruelty-free cosmetics. In 1990, Revlon was one of the first mainstream companies to make such a pledge to PETA.
We’re saddened to know this gorgeous humanitarian was not voted for an award of her own for her role in The Help, but we look forward to her rising popularity in film and television (she’s scheduled for a cameo appearance in the upcoming season of 30 Rock, according to Boomtron).
And for the record — the movie Easy A (where she played the lead backed by actor Stanley Tucci) is tops. We fell in love with her then and our affection (to date) has never stopped.
