Actress Emma Stone is on quite a roll. This month’s Vogue cover girl and star of the upcoming film ‘The Amazing Spider-Man,’ slated to open July 3, is on a worldwide media tour for the new action flick. As she travels from city to city she’s been been popping up on our fashion radar in outfits that are bold and polished -- just what you’d expect from the rising starlet.

Stone was recently spotted in a royal blue Carven dress and Christian Louboutin heels at a lighting ceremony at the Empire State Building with her costar and real-life beau Andrew Garfield. She wore a black and white cocktail frock by Jason Wu at a photocall in Rome, a long maroon and blue color-block dress by Roksanda Ilincic in Madrid and a black and yellow hand-painted Lanvin dress in Moscow.


At a news conference at the premiere of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ in South Korea, Stone once again wowed, in a Burberry Prorsum blue and brown stripe shirt and black pencil skirt, bright turquoise necklace and red Brian Atwood pumps.

For a versatile pencil skirt similar to Stone’s, try the pencil skirt with frill at the front from Zara for $49.90. Pair with the American vintage stripe shirt from for $88 and add a pop of color with a chunky necklace. For a real statement piece, get the Kenneth Jay Lane necklace from for $83.25 or the Syanne Bib necklace from for $69.

Stone chose a pair of red shoes, but this look can work with any solid-color heel. A black shoe might be nice, or a neon color could spruce up the ensemble for summer. For a simple red heel, try the Unityy heel by Steve Madden which comes in suede or patent, both for $69.95.

The pencil skirt, striped top and turquoise necklace are stylish but not stiff and can be appropriate for anything from a party to a job interview.

Happy shopping.
