America’s Super Cool Best Friend Emma Stone has amped up the edge for her W Magazine photo shoot with Juergen Teller. And boy, has Teller stayed true to his strung-out, Marc Jacobs model aesthetic. Stone graces the February cover complete with a serious case of the bedhead, minimal make-up, and a strapless bra — all washed in the light of a hotel that looks like it rents by the hour rather than the day.
But that’s because Stone is one of those cool, down-for-whatever, don’t-take-s**t-seriously type gals, so working with Teller was probably just a new experience. That said, we’re usually fairly impressed with W‘s attempts to stay fresh and relevant, but we just can’t get down on this one. Stone’s cover feels a bit too amateur and hip, so it comes across as a bit disingenuous. We’re all for Stone getting stripped down out of the Hollywood machine, but this might not be the way we’d go about it if we were suddenly made a stylist at W. Check out the cover, below, and see for yourself.
