For Best Actress winner Emma Stone, readying for this year’s red carpet event doubled as a visual ode to Hollywood—a fitting choice, as La La Land pays homage to Tinseltown in all its whimsical glory. Her custom beaded and gilded Givenchy gown was one of Riccardo Tisci’s final designs before stepping down as the fashion house’s creative director. To match its glittering screen-siren ethos above the neck, Stone paired up with her longtime beauty squad to channel timeless silver screen drama with a youthful twist.
Longtime makeup artist Rachel Goodwin looked to the saturated glamour of the 1930s, dipping into an arsenal of NARS makeup for a riff on Prohibition-era beauty. A matte, brick red lip—NARS Cosmetics Audacious Lipstick in Mona—played well with eyes edged in smoke, while a pair of gilded Art Deco earrings were the finishing touch. As for Stone’s signature copper waves? The dreamy doings of hairstylist Mara Roszak, who fused polish and playfulness for a classic look that held its own alongside that golden Best Actress statuette.
Here, the Oscar winner gives a look inside her getting-ready prep for the night.
