Emma Stone Is Our Vintage Hen Party Inspiration

We have thought long and hard about it, and have finally come to the conclusion that Eva Mendes can keep Ryan Gosling all for herself; we’re all about Emma Stone right now. It could be that amazing auburn hair, or the porcelain skin and green eyes, or the fact that she’s just so damn cool. Truth be told, it could be a lot of things, but one thing we are sure of is that we are seriously crushing on the fiery haired starlet and the vintage style her character ‘Mia’ is rocking right now in La La Land.

Grace Kelly and Katharine Hepburn are just two of the silver screen stars said to have inspired Stone’s La La Land look, which is a celebration of technicolour Old Hollywood style, complete with rainbow brights and coral lipstick. In fact, we think her Golden Globe-winning ‘40s look has vintage hen party outfit written all over it. All you need to do now is recreate it with these key pieces and add just a hint of that special Emma Stone sass.


Who says your dancing shoes have to be sky high? Emma Stone’s fancy footwork saw her tensing her twinkle toes in 1940s style two-toned Oxford brogues, a shoe that she was known to rock even before La La Land landed on the big screen. For another example of a gal who knows how to work a brogue, look no further than one of our favourite vintage loving songstresses, Miss Taylor Swift.

Coral Lips

Bold lipsticks are big news for 2017 brides and Emma Stone’s love for a coral pop of colour is has always caught our eye. It’s a look that won’t just work for your vintage hen party look, but even on the big day too, especially if you’re blessed with the same emerald eyes and fiery hair as the starlet.

Tea-length Dresses 

Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers eat your hearts out because our gal Stone is showing off some serious moves in that canary yellow tea-length dress. A little movement is a must in a dress like this, especially if you’re planning on tapping a toe or two in one of our hen party dance lessons; may we suggest the Charleston? Be sure to go for something with a fuller skirt to guarantee substantial swirl factor, too. You’re never too old to appreciate a good skirt swish! When it comes to up top, sweetheart necklines embody the romantic, feminine edge of the ‘40s, showing just the right amount of skin to make them perfect first date material.

Shirt Dresses 

The simple shirt dress is a classic and something any vintage lover probably already has in her retro repertoire. We have already shared Emma’s unfailing love for the coral lip, but her coral shirt dress in the film was the piece de resistance of character Mia’s ladylike, retro-inspired look.
