Daily Dhaak Times: Emma Stone floated down from the heavens onto the Venice Film Festival red carpet in a gown made by mermaids from dreams and moon dust. Well, that’s what it looked like. In actuality, Stone wore a dreamily-beaded, mermaid-inspired gown from Atelier Versace that was reportedly hand-picked by stylist Petra Flannery.
The dress was the perfect choice for the world premiere of La La Land, Damien Chazelle’s throwback movie musical reuniting the actress with her on-again-off-again co-star Ryan Gosling. Sadly, Gosling did not make the festival—that or Stone’s dress was so brilliant that it immediately rendered all other red-carpet occupants invisible—but we’re sure that the reflection from Stone’s shimmery ribbons reached him, wherever on the planet he was.And yes, when you wear a gown like this, you are legally required to dance in it.
Earlier in the day, Stone and Chazelle spoke with press about their collaboration—the first film Chazelle has directed since his critically-lauded breakout Whiplash.
“Bursting into song has always been a real dream of mine,” the actress told journalists, before thanking Chazelle for making that dream come true for her. In the film, Stone plays an aspiring actress working as a barista on the Warner Bros. lot—literally watching dreams and fantasies being constructed all around her. Stone falls for Gosling’s aspiring jazz pianist, and the two navigate the buoyant ups—[previewed in the trailer](http://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2016/07/la-la-land-trailer-ryan-gosling-emma-stone—and hard-knock downs of Los Angeles.
Chazelle explained that his ambition for the movie was “to link the magic of an old-fashioned musical but make it about real life today. . .in real life when things don’t always work out.” To perfect that old-school homage, Chazelle revealed that, “Emma and I talked about the rhythm of her speech patterns as much as her singing.” And in a separate interview with Entertainment Weekly, Chazelle explained what throwback stars Stone and Gosling remind him of.
“They—for me—feel like the closest thing that we have right now to an old Hollywood couple, like Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn or Fred and Ginger or Myrna Loy and Dick Powell. There’s something about the recurrence of Ryan and Emma as a couple and about them individually as actors and the way they register onscreen—the timeless glamour that they’re capable of.” Source : .vanityfair
