So, here we have the ever-stylish Emma Stone, who’s hitting red carpets everywhere these days at the various international premieres of “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” I thought this photo, taken in Berlin, was noteworthy for a few reasons. I love how the Chanel dress playfully picks up on the Spider-Man costume colors of red and blue; it’s got a floaty casualness to it — even as she holds still, the dress is dancing — and an interesting play of textures. (Of course, let’s face it, this woman could wear a gown made of pages from the Daily Bugle and look chic.) And what dress doesn’t benefit from an enormous blue Jamie Foxx head behind it? It seems to be speaking directly to her, saying either “Nice dress” or “Step out of my way.”
