Emma Stone's Dress At The 'Spiderman' Premiere In Paris Scares Us A Little (PHOTOS)

It's no secret that we're big fans of Emma Stone. We obsessed over her recently-revealed Vogue cover (it was pretty major) and we're always keeping an eye out for her red carpet appearances for style inspiration.

So we were particularly confused when she stepped out for the Paris premiere of "The Amazing Spiderman" in a gothic Gucci gown complete with garish makeup. Just the day before, the actress attended the London premiere of the film in a sophisticated Elie Saab getup. So what happened here?

The black tulle and intricate web-like detailing of the dress have so much potential (especially considering the film's subject matter), but the overly vampy makeup and faux bob take the look to a hyperbolic place. She's so gorgeous, we'd love to have seen her in the ensemble with a bit of a makeunder.

On the other hand, Emma's beau, Andrew Garfield, looked pretty dreamy in an appropriately red suit. We're sure Ms. Stone will get back on track and turn it out for the next 'Spiderman' premiere though.

Check out photos below and tell us what you think of Emma's dark premiere look.
