Emma Stones' Looks For Less

She showed us her funny side in Superbad; she showed us a more dramatic role in The Help. Now, Emma Stone is not only becoming one of Hollywood’s most loveable actresses, she’s one of the most stylish too! As a result, Stone has been on the watch at all the awards shows. Up next: the Oscars! Her fashion sense has evolved into a sleek, and elegant style, but she also knows how to take it down a notch with some fantastic RTW duds that give great inspiration for styles that don't have to break the bank.

THE SCENE
The Christian Siriano Way of Things For Spring 2011

In a past lifetime, Christian Siriano could have been a shoe designer. Throughout his Spring 2011 collection, it was painfully hard to balance the attention between Siriano's Eastern Culture influence and the collections footwear -named Shanghai, Mumbai, Nairobi and Zanzi - a phenomenal contribution to his affordable capsule with Payless. Unlike his fame founding rival, Daniel Vosovic, the designer kept literally honest to the Siriano way of things.

He played it safe with skin-embracing frocks adorned in repetitive prints. Prints, most of us appreciate and depend on of Siriano. The designer introduced the spirit of a traveling woman, with belted hip-touching bodices, shiny bermuda shorts and a metallic front-draped pencil skirt for an evening night out. Siriano's draping was taken out of context, when he begin to playfully drap transparent like fabrics from various places on the woman's body.

Isabel Toledo To Payless: Isabel Toledo - obviously a favorite to the First Lady, Michelle Obama - may actually bring to life previosuly impossible desires by making Payless even more cool, and aesthetically wearable. And though, Christian Siriano attempted such a task - we'd rather not comment. Toledo has signed on to design handbags and shoes for the retail chain, expected to hit stores and online in September. Her camp hints flats, square heels and wellies made from patent leather, rubber, mesh and nylon are to be expected. But will that be enough? Possibly, since pricing is set to be under $40. Toledo says: “It’s really a collection for women from all walks of life, literally. And it’s been interesting as I’ve had to have a different design hat on." We wonder if Obama will trade in her Lanvin sneakers for this?
