We’ve been on the fence about Emma Stone’s return to flaxen, as we were kind of partial to the honey-ginger hair hue that helped make her (and colorist Tracey Cunningham) famous. But Frida Giannini’s aubergine Gucci gown and the incredible berry lip/pink eye gloss combination that celebrity makeup artist Rachel Goodwin gave Stone for the Paris premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man last night wouldn’t have looked nearly as good had she been a redhead. The stark contrast of the dark colors on her impossibly alabaster skin and tousled, bordering-on-platinum strands provided the kind of gothic glamour that was the big takeaway from the Fall shows. Color us excited if this is what we have to look forward to as more of the season’s best offerings go from the runway to the red carpet. What do you think of the look?
Emma Stone had a busy weekend. The Amazing Spider-Man actress had to double-time work duties at a photo call for the summer blockbuster on Saturday and girlfriend duties when she accompanied on- and off-screen love interest Andrew Garfield to the Tony Awards last night. So, how did the newly blonde-again starlet go from casual cool to the belle of Broadway? With a simple switch of her honey gold locks. Stone wore her bangs brushed forward with a sleek blow-out for press photos and then swept up her texturized strands into an updo with side-slung fringe to play a supporting role at the awards ceremony. Which look do you like best?
The Face Painter: Chanel celebrity makeup artist Rachel Goodwin
The Face: In an effort to amp up the Amazing Spider-Man star’s black Martin Grant bustier top and white skirt, Goodwin decided to boost Stone’s porcelain skin so it looked as though “[she] had spent a day at the beach.” Going for a look that was “slightly sun-kissed,” Goodwin topped a light base of Chanel Le Blanc Sheer Illuminating Base with Revlon PhotoReady Airbrush Mousse Makeup in Nude, a foundation that was two shades darker than Stone’s natural skin tone. A touch of Chanel Powder Blush in In Love on the apples of her cheeks and a dusting of its Natural Finish Pressed Powder imparted a velvety finish.
The Eyes: Incorporating a “classic eye” into the mix, Goodwin blended neutral shades from Chanel’s Quadra Eye Shadow in Prelude across Stone’s lids, lining the upper lash line with a black flick courtesy of Revlon Liquid Liner in Blackest Black. Goodwin then slicked on a few coats of its Grow Luscious Mascara in Blackest Black before filing in Stone’s brows with Chanel’s Sculpting Eye Brow Pencil in Brun Natural.
The Lips: Since joining forces a few years back, statement lips have become a big part of Goodwin and Stone’s face-painting repertoire. Last night was no exception. “The lip was the focal point of the look,” according to Goodwin, who traced Revlon’s Just Kissable Lipstick in Rendezvous, a bright coral, onto Stone’s mouth.
The Result: Pioneering beauty that was 100 percent worth honoring.
Going brunette has been the way to go lately, based on the army of dark-haired beauties we witnessed on the Fall runways. But this past weekend, the flaxen fought back. Thanks to the wizardry of her go-to New York-based colorist Marie Robinson, Emma Stone (pictured, left) successfully circled from auburn red to peroxide to strawberry blonde and back this year, so it wasn’t much of a surprise when she turned up on the red carpet for the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards showing off newly lightened, golden tresses. By comparison, Crystal Renn’s (pictured, right) recent transformation caught us totally off-guard. The stunning model has long used her raven-black tresses and sharp cheekbones as calling cards, but she switched things up a bit while vacationing in the Bahamas, and shared pictures of a new platinum shade with her New York agency Ford. Are blondes staging a comeback? Tell us what you think below.
Emma Stone is a fan of keeping things interesting when it comes to her hair color—which is in large part thanks to her trusted colorist, Tracey Cunningham. The natural blonde went a shade of bright red soon after arriving in Hollywood, and it was as a ginger that she landed her first big breaks in movies like Super Bad and Easy A. Then last year saw a return to blond—very, very blond—for her role in this summer’s The Amazing Spider-Man. But once filming wrapped on the action flick, Stone transitioned back into auburn after a powwow with Cunningham. “She’s the only woman I will trust to stick her hands in my hair,” the star of The Help once told us of the Redken color consultant. But it’s Cunningham’s New York-based coloring compatriot, Marie Robinson, who has given Stone her latest look, which registers somewhere in between flaxen and fiery—let’s call it honey strawberry. Stone debuted the first phase of the lightening process last week in New York and at this weekend’s WonderCon press conference in California, the actress’ new color seemed to reach its saturation point. Which shade do you think suits her best?
