The premiere for the new live-action Disney movie, Cruella, was historic. According to The Hollywood Reporter, it was the first major red carpet event since the pandemic began. With most movies either moving to streaming services or pushed back indefinitely...it was thrilling to see something as traditional as photographs from a movie premiere. Especially since I have not been able to go to a movie theatre in such a long time. It was nice to pretend that things were normal for a moment. Emma Stone certainly made the most of this historic red carpet event. She let her bold sense of style do all the talking! Are you ready for a healthy dose of high fashion? Here goes! It is time for another installment of love it or leave it?
What I Love: Quite frankly, I love just about everything about this red carpet look. I love the bold side part with naturally waved tresses. I love the fit the of the jacket and the pants. I love the crisp white ruffled blouse. I love the gold accents with the buttons and hardware. And I adore the accessories. Emma Stone kept the shoes fairly simple to allow everything else to stand out. Like the pin on the jacket, those incredible statement earrings, and oh, the red details! From that bright red lipstick shade to the red nails and red clutch...this premiere outfit oozes style. It takes something traditional (like a suit) and transforms it into something wild and free. Emma absolutely embodies her Cruella character here. There is something dark yet alluring about the whole ensemble. Perhaps I have missed traditional red carpet looks a little too much, but this look is close to perfect.
What I Loathe: This is a little nitpicky. However, there is one aspect of this red carpet look that I do not love. If you look closely...round white jewels have been placed on the inner portion of the eye and the outer corner of the eye. While I totally understand the idea, it looked a bit off and distracting. Perhaps if the jewels had been placed only on the inner corner, it would have come together a little bit better. The use of the jewels simply was not needed as everything else seemed so effortless.
So...is it a love it or leave it? For me, this is a love, love, love. The outfit is bold, in-your-face, and accessorized to perfection. Emma channels that Cruella style but still highlights her own fashion forward sense of style.
What do you think? Love it or leave it?
