Getting Ready for the Oscars with Emma and Her Red Carpet Team
Fresh from her stint in Cabaret on Broadway and an appearance on Saturday Night Live’s 40th Anniversary Special, Emma Stone flew into Los Angeles just days ahead of the Academy Awards. On the afternoon of the big event, the Best Supporting Actress nominee met up with her team of eight years—stylist Petra Flannery, makeup artist Rachel Goodwin, and hairstylist Mara Roszak—to get ready for the red carpet. Here’s how her perfect look came together, from choosing her Elie Saab gown to the perfect bright coral lip color.
Makeup artist Rachel Goodwin's kit. "The makeup had a vintage feel," says Goodwin of the look devised for Stone. "It was all soft, warm tones. There were no blacks—it was fresh skin and all browns, peaches and creams."
Chanel manicurist Ashlie Johnson chose the company’s polish in Secret—a peachy beige with an opaque cream finish—for Stone's nails.
The red carpet ready ritual: Stone preps for the big event with a SK-II Facial Treatment Mask and a Joan's Greens cold-pressed juice from Juice Served Here.
"Emma is our muse. Petra sets the tone with the clothing and we approach every red carpet look like we are telling a story,” says Goodwin of the group’s collaborative spirit. Here, they look over last minute details before the event. "We are a great team—we all have the same sense of humor, the same aesthetic, and we know how to let each other shine.”
Flannery lays out Christian Louboutin shoes, Tiffany & Co. cuffs and earrings, and a selection of clutches alongside a swatch of chartreuse fabric from Stone’s Elie Saab gown.
"We are all obsessed with florist Maurice Harris of Bloom and Plume's Instagram account. He gives all of his arrangements crazy names, so we had this one—called 'Carshanda Rose'—delivered to Emma to make her laugh," says Roszak of a moment of pre-event fun.
The team also brought a giant chocolate cupcake from Crumbs Bake Shop with a sparkler on the top to celebrate Stone's Academy Award nomination.
"We decided at the last minute to go a bit shorter," says Roszak of giving Stone a quick pre-Oscars trim to her bob.
Goodwin found this photo of a rose in gelatin “inside a book of Tim Walker's photographs and I knew immediately this was the color combination I was looking for between [Emma’s] dress and the makeup,” she says.
Goodwin finishes by applying Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick in Tulip to Stone. "The lip was the focus of the look," says Goodwin. “A beautiful coral mouth that was really fresh and exuberant—just like Emma. She wears color so well, I knew it could be vivid without being overwhelming."
"Emma has so much fun with the red carpet," says Goodwin of the finished look, captured just before Stone headed out the door for the night.
