Emma Stone in Vogue: I Don't See Myself as a Style Setter

Emma Stone VogueCraig McDean for VOGUE

Emma Stone has had a seriously stylish month, kicking off a whirlwind world tour to promote The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in chic menswear, daringly different dresses, beautiful hairstyles and this showstopping moment. And now she’s capping the whole thing off with a Vogue cover — and true to her signature fashionably funny form, she conducted her interview in (wait for it) a Build-a-Bear workshop in a mall in L.A.

Stone, by the way, admits to Googling herself, even referring to herself as “that bland basic b—h,” which apparently is something she’s been called on the Internet. But there’s hardly anything basic about her style; after all, she’s a Met Gala regular on the arm of Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz (who’s reportedly taking her again this year). “I feel about Emma that she’s a close cousin rather than a celebrity I have to dress,” Elbaz tells Vogue, adding that she’s “a great date . . . my mother would have been proud.”

But despite Stone’s high regard in the world of fashion, she doesn’t see herself as setting trends. “No, I’ve never thought about that,” she says, but “It’s fun to get to borrow a dress for a night and dress up for something.” She’s equally sweet but vague about her romance with Spider-Man co-star Andrew Garfield (“It’s fun. It’s been fun working with him just because of who he is as an actor and person. I think it would be fun no matter what,” she says) but much more effusive on the subject of dressing the bear — just like we like her.

I like Emma, but why hasn’t Vogue put Lupita on a cover yet? Marie Claire was smart for putting her on their May cover.

Is clueless to why anyone would suggest that Emma is a ‘bland basic b—h’. Hmm. I just do NOT see it. She is very stylish and comes across as sweet, funny and down to Earth.
She is beautiful and talented. Love her!

Christine on

I don’t think of Emma as a “blank boring b****” at all. She seems fun and classy, love her!

Lindsay on

I absolutely love Emma Stone! I enjoy all of her movies and she’s both tough and adorable at the same time. I love these photos – she gorgeous and classy and doesn’t have the typical snooty Hollywood attitude. She’s the girl next door, someone I’d like to be friends with. My boys can’t wait for the new Spidey movie!

Every celeb has “haters” no matter how nice they are. I don’t particularly follow Emma but I’ve seen ugly things said about just about everyone in the public eye…including some who I do follow. It’s why I don’t read comments on YouTube and many other sites, including on Facebook because people like to be mean and hateful because they can hide behind their computers. Social media is just another way to bully.

I don’t see the hype about her. I’m kinda surprised her career is as big as it is even though she has a lisp.

deliah on

Sorry but I have to agree….

Laura on

I love her. Love love love her. LOVE.

She’s on the same awesome level as JLaw and Anna Kendrick.

Seriously, love.
