Style Watch Wednesday | Gwen Stacy

Wednesday, 13 January 2016

I've never really had a particular style, I just wear what I like, and what I feel like wearing. I find inspiration in all sorts of places, so I decided to start a Style Watch weekly post to help explore the world of fashion!

If you know me well, you'll know I am an unashamed Spiderman nerd, and having watched the Andrew Garfield/Emma Stone movies nearly a 1000,000 times, it's safe to say I have analysed every aspect.
One thing that stood out to me from the first viewing, was the 'Gwen Stacy' wardrobe - it is perfect. Comic book style, yet wearable for everyday life. So, I've decided to focus my first 'style watch Wednesday' on Emma Stones impeccable Gwen Stacy.

Crochet tights / Purple skirt / Green Coat / Purple Blouse / Over Knee boots / MUFE HD Foundation

This was arguably the most talked about outfit of Gwen's seen in the movie. It was one which die hard Spiderman fans would have recognised from the comics, and it hints at big storyline events (I wont spoil it for you!). I, however, liked it for other reasons. I love the mix of fabrics and colours - the soft, flowing blouse, the aubergine skirt with hard edge pleats, and the edginess the patterned tights bring. Gwen accessorises this outfit with her famous seafom green coat, which I have found a replica for. It would be well worth the money if you were wanting to complete your own Gwen look.

I read an interview with Ve Niel - big time Makeup artist who worked on 'The Amazing Spiderman' movies - and she mentioned that she used the MakeUp Forever HD Foundation on set for Gwen as it has great longevity and gives a youthful glow!

For a more casual / street style take on the Gwen Stacy look, I looked to this outfit.
I love the laid back feel mixed in with pops of contrasting colours - this is something I would never think to do myself, but it actually looks brilliant! The slouchy beanie keeps the look young while the blazer pulls it together, making it a perfect 'dinner-with-friends' ensemble. I love the use of colour and I think this is something I would like to try to do with my own outfits.

There are an endless list of beautiful Gwen outfits throughout the two 'Amazing Spiderman' movies, but these are just two of my favourites. The mix of fabrics, textures and colours makes for a memorable, yet wearable outfit and the simplistic makeup gives you a youthful aura.

You go Spidy!!


  1. I love the style of Emma on spiderman! This post was really cool haha

  2. I have a very similar take on fashion. I wear what I like, and I don't particularly have any fashion sense. Oh well, haha! Ve Neil is one of my favorite makeup artists. Her work is incredible! Xx

    1. I think that's the best way to be! No need to conform, show yourself through your own sense of style!
      So glad I know another Ve fan - most people don't know who she is when I mention her! Cray-cray!
