Emma Stone’s golden moment

It’s official – Emma Stone can formally be added to the list of A-listers who consistently get it right (along with another young Emma: Watson, of Harry Potter fame). Whether she’s in an androgynous Saint Laurent suit (at the London photocall for The Amazing Spider-Man 2) or in Giambattista Valli at the 2012 Oscars.

We can add this beautiful Atelier Versace floor-length gown to her list of red-carpet hits, worn earlier this month at the world premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in London. We should note, too, that she’s back to her red tresses – are we alone in preferring Stone’s fiery locks to the natural blond she sported during 2013?

Either way, we’re big Stone fans – who can resist her incredibly endearing performance in one of our all-time favorite chick-flicks, Crazy, Stupid, Love? So it stands to reason that we’d be itching to imitate her in sunny bright yellow. And it would be ideal for a summer wedding – or for sunny summer ‘maids!

The good news? Yellow is always big for spring/summer – and whether you’re alabaster-skinned like Stone or sit more on the Zoe Saldana scale, you can find a yellow that suits you.

This lace dress from Macys (left, $99) is a sweet and super-casual choice – covered in daisy lace, it nods to catwalk looks seen at Chanel and Louis Vuitton (while keeping within the most modest budget!). Upping the ante a bit, this Vionnet dress (right, $2,020) is a more fashion-forward choice, cooler than it is girly and, like so many “fashionable” options, not really concerned with being flattering. (Why do you think so many of the most stylish street stars don’t exactly need to worry about concealing or enhancing particular features?!)

On the lemon end of the scale, Topshop’s cute layered shift dress (left, $96) shares more than a few attributes with Macy’s lace number – but the lace appliqués add a touch of glamor, and the shade would be great on very pale skin (may we recommend a raspberry lip?). Banana Republic’s ponté dress (right, $130), on the other hand, owes more than a little to Hervé Léger’s bandage dresses, but we’ll forgive it for that über-cool cross-back detail.

Would you wear yellow to a sunny, summer wedding?
