And The Award For Best Halloween Costume Goes To... You As Emma Stone From La La Land!

October 4, 2017 by Justine Schwartz
shefinds | Celebrity

Emma Stone took home her first Oscar for the role of struggling actress Mia in the musical smash La La Land this year-and you might take home your first “best costume” award by replicating her look for Halloween 2017. A yellow dress, some dance shoes and few moves is all you need (and, um, maybe a Ryan Gosling look-alike on your arm?). And by “dance moves” I don’t mean formal tap training like Stone got for the movie–you can definitely have fun with it. This is a good costume for anyone who wants to prance around all night, twirling on telephone polls and skipping through stop traffic (okay, don’t do that last part). Let’s dive into this epic Halloween costume.

First–get that soundtrack in your brain by catching up on the trailer and other beloved scenes from the film. You can buy or rent the full movie now–it’s everywhere on digital release. And with Academy Awards for Best Actress, Best Director, Best Original Music Score and more… why wouldn’t you want to? It’s a beautiful film, and to play Mia, aka Emma Stone, you’ll need to get in the musical theater state of mind. Our favorite songs are “A Lovely Night” and “Someone In The Crowd.” Just a heads up!

Ahh–that was nice, right? Okay, here’s how to be Emma Stone from the “Lovely Night” scene–aka, the yellow dress scene–from the film. If you really want to take the costume up a notch, make it a couples costume and enlist someone to be your Sebastian. Again, we’re not saying they *need* to look like Ryan Gosling–but that would be nice, wouldn’t it? For the Sebastian side of things, all he/she needs is a white Oxford shirt, tie, slacks and men’s dance shoes or brogues. And here’s what you’ll need for her:

1. The dress. 

Emma Stone wears a few cute dresses in the film–another favorite is her blue swing halter dress from the “Someone In The Crowd.” Let’s start with the classic yellow dress though, which is also used on the movie poster, DVD cover and other promotional materials. It’s more recognizable! You can find exact replicas of the dress online. Here’s one from Amazon. Obviously, you should buy whatever cheapest and available in your size when it times come to order:

Yellow party dress ($29)

2. Dance shoes.

These are ugly, but they’re kind of essential for the costume. These are your classic wing tip heeled dance shoes. Emma wears something almost identical in the film. These are from Amazon–maybe you can find them for cheaper at Goodwill?

Wing tip dance shoes ($27.99)

3. A wig.

Emma Stone wears her strawberry blonde hair at shoulder-length with a center part in the film. If you have hair just like that, you’re golden. If not, here’s what I think is the perfect wig for the costume:

Now it’s time to memorize all the lyrics. Good luck!
