PVC Chic: Emma Stone Shows Us How To Wear Faux-Leather With A Little Help From Lanvin

12 April 2014 by

We're a little bit in love with the fact that Emma Stone never just plays it safe and opts for the boring LBD on the red carpet. From canary yellow to slick tailoring she's worn every trend we want to wear, and more. The latest case in point? This daring strapless black PVC dress by Lanvin, which looked like a cross between Catwoman and a sexy superhero's outfit, when she wore it to the Paris premiere for The Amazing Spiderman 2. Check out that thigh high split!

But PVC is a notoriously tricky fabric to wear, and where Emma has rocked in this Lanvin autumn/winter 2014 gown, others have failed. The secret to success is to keep it simple and let your PVC do the talking. It's easy to feel like you need to match a bold dress, skirt or trousers with similarly bold accessories and shoes, but in fact, when PVC is worn best it's worn straight up.

Take a look at Stone, who paired her Lanvin autumn/winter 2014 with black courts and red lipstick. Or Leigh Lezark in 2013, who dressed all in black and merely matched her hair and shoes with her PVC outfit. Even Australian supermodel and TV presenter Elle Macpherson, who is known for her floaty boho style, paired her PVC trews with no-nonsense sunnies and a white tee.
