The stars stepped out in bulk to celebrate their stylists at THR‘s Top Stylist Luncheon last week! And while these dressing mavens see their famous clients ’round the clock, we were charmed to discover that even Petra Flannery, who styles Emma Stone, Zoe Saldana, and Claire Danes, gets starstruck when she sees one of her actresses in the perfect look. Her top 2013 looks so far: Danes at the Golden Globes in Versace Couture. “It was made and we were only able to try it on the night before! It was such a triumphant moment to have it all work out.” She also loved Saldana, who stood by her stylist’s side throughout the event, in that ruffled Alexis Mabille dress for this year’s Oscars. And finally, she told us that she adored Stone’s all-red Lanvin look for the Gangster Squad premiere. “It was one of those moments where the more you started adding, the better it got,” she said, referencing the addition of crimson heels and a ruby necklace. “It was a glamorous ’80s look, but because she’s modern and fresh and youthful, she pulled it off.” And we agreed—all of these ensembles made their way into our Look of the Day roundup!
Check out more of the looks we’ve loved in our Look of the Day lookbook.

The actress, who’s currently touring to promote the animated flick, The Croods (in theaters March 22), was spotted at a New York event wearing Melinda Maria‘s second-finger “Titus” wrapper, shaped like a coiled hunting arrow. (Paging: Katniss Everdeen.) To snag it for yourself, shop it for $58 on MelindaMaria.com. And pick up our April Color Issue to see more looks you loved and we found.

It’s been a long wait, but it’s now over! Ryan Gosling returns to the big screen today in 1950s-Los Angeles set Gangster Squad, alongside repeat co-star Emma Stone. The two originally appeared together as a couple of lovebirds in 2011′s Crazy Stupid Love, and there’s no doubt that these new roles are going to be vastly different from those. Gosling plays a cop-turned-informant who is bent on sending L.A.’s biggest mob leader to jail for life, no matter what it takes. And Stone plays the mob leader’s muse, who Gosling seduces to try to get closer to the criminal. It’s all so exciting! Click here to find out where the movie is playing near you!

Emma Stone and Lanvin artistic director Alber Elbaz have a fashion connection that we all can enjoy! The Gangster Squad actress and Look of the Day fixture is no stranger to wearing Lanvin’s designs—she just wore one of the label’s pre-fall numbers before it even debuted on the runway—and we caught up with the charismatic Israeli designer at last night’s Geoffrey Beene National Scholarship Awards Dinner in New York to find out just why he loves dressing the young star so much. “I love Emma! I think she is such a talented girl and actress,” Elbaz told InStyle.com before taking the stage to receives the night’s biggest honor—the 50th Anniversary Geoffrey Beene Fashion Impact Award. “She’s a wonderful, wonderful friend. She’s a great daughter. She’s so stylish, but also so fabulous as a person. I cannot separate her personality from the rest of it. She’s the best, just totally a good person and I love her and I wish her a wonderful 2013.” May their fashion tryst continue for a long time to come! We’re predicting lots of Lanvin for Miss Stone this award season.

Emma Stone loves Lanvin. The Gangster Squad star wears the label’s designs regularly—all of which are created by artistic director Alber Elbaz—and last night’s Los Angeles premiere for the film was no exception. The star donned a vivid red dress from the designer’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection, which just premiered in New York yesterday. “The dress hadn’t even shown on the runway—it was literally showing on the runway at the exact time of the premiere,” Stone’s makeup artist, Rachel Goodwin, told InStyle.com. “It was a specially-made piece, and Alber put so much heart into it. She has such a great relationship with him, and it was a really wonderful piece. It rides that line between sweet and super-fashionable.” She finished the look with Lanvin jewelry as well. We love the entire ensemble, too—so much that it was our top pick for today’s Look of the Day.
