We’re hooked and we can’t stop staring! Emma Stone attended the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Grants Banquet in Beverly Hills on Thursday, August 4, wearing quite the buttoned-up look — or so we thought.
The La La Land actress, 27, worked her lithe frame in a violet, crisply tailored Roland Mouret dress with black piping and a slightly flared hemline. She accessorized the look with minimalistic ankle-strap sandals and barely there baubles.
While those details would have made it a perfectly lovely daytime look all by itself, there was a drool-worthy accent on the back that upped the ante on the whole look: a long black-and-white lace panel with a honeycomb outline. Just as sexy, a top-to-bottom zipper ran through the middle, ending above a slit.
Underplaying the steaminess of the design, the Oscar-nominated actress, who returned to her signature scarlet tresses in June after experimenting with both platinum blonde and a deep brunette, modeled casually tousled waves parted to one side. She also rocked a complementary purple smoky eye.
