Emma Stone’s knee-length Bottega Veneta dress with black lace overlay made us rethink the frisky fabric. Black lace beyond the bedroom? Oh, yes. Her MTV Movie Awards style stood out in a sea of sparkle for its modest fringe hemline and demure ribbon-cinched waist.
Recreate Emma’s red carpet style
Get gracefully lace-full with our pretty picks below:
Aqua’s black lace mini skirt ($78) at Bloomingdale’s can be edgy, elegant, or eclectic. Pair with pearls and ballet flats for an Audrey Hepburn take, or try it with a flannel shirt and booties.
A daytime spin on Emma’s dress, we love Nasty Gal’s Lacie Dress ($58) for its flirty hemline and attention-grabbing lacy back.
This American Apparel dress ($52) is classic and comfortable with a kick, a perfect example that lace doesn’t have to feel frilly or fussy.
