Emma Stone gown may have matched the red carpet, but she still stood out at the 2012 Oscars tonight in Hollywood.

The actress is one of my favourite stars to watch on the red carpet, and she did not let me down in this Giambattista Valli Couture Spring 2012 gown.

The high-necked gown with a bow is already drawing comparisons to Nicole Kidman’s Balenciaga gown at the 2007 Academy Awards.

Although the similarities are undeniable, Emma’s impeccable personal style gives the look a new lease of life.

A slick bun, red lippie Louis Vuitton clutch and Louis Vuitton jewels complete the look.
