Whether she’s wearing plunging Elie Saab or fluoro pink Valentino, Emma Stone‘s red carpet game is second to none, a fact which Vogue celebrated this year by putting the actress on the cover of their annual “Best Dressed” issue.
But Stone shrugs off the suggestion that her fashion sense is really all that worthy of the attention. Instead, in the February issue of Glamour UK, she tells the magazine that her stylist Petra Flannery deserves full credit for landing her the #1 spot:
“That was hilarious. I mean, I have a stylist, and she’s the voice of reason behind anything I’ve worn on the red carpet over the past few years. She knows that I won’t dress like a fairy princess, wear a lot of glitter or anything that makes me look like a Victorian doll. If I could wear those things and not look like Dakota Fanning when she was eight, maybe, but I just don’t look good in them.”
Not that she’s all that down on herself though. “Everybody has parts of their body that they dislike,” she confesses, “but I’m not going to lose any sleep over them.” Once upon a time, however, it was a slightly different story. When she was 16, Stone had a harrowing experience auditioning for a role that required her to wear a bikini as part of a “family beach scene”:
“[About the beach scene] we had to line up in bikinis in front of a bunch of middle-aged men, which was the worst. I literally had the body of a ten-year-old back then. But the most horrific thing was that I wasn’t acting: I was just standing there in a bikini. I assume that’s what Bar Refaeli feels like, but then I’m not a Sports Illustrated supermodel.”
