[La La Land.2016] The costumes for Mia (Emma Stone)´s theatrical performance (black chalk stripe suit, black skirt on knee length) are darker and more adult-like. Except for the scene in which she argues with Sebastian (she wears a black sweater overlapped a blue shirt then), she hasn´t worn black tops before. White or colored shirts had enlightened her face during the first half of the movie, when she was getting on well with Seb. Once she feels their love dimming – and her career deadlocked –, she wears darker clothes. Five years later, we witness some changes in Mia´s style, while keeping her authenticity. She still wears romantic outfits (lace, high heeled shoes), feminine dresses and delicate accessories, but the pieces of garment look more up-to-date, elegant and monochromatic, once she´s now an older woman and a successful actress. She doesn’t wear circular skirts anymore, she wears tapered dresses instead, because in this part of the movie there´ll be no dancing (except for the epilogue, in which there are particularly different outfits). The last dress was the most expensive one: a classy black halter dress bought at Saks Fifth Avenue, designed by Jason Wu, that was combined with Christian Louboutin black varnish pumps and a black clutch. The design of her statement jewels was a collaborative work: Mary Zophres, Damien Chazelle, Fred Berger (one of the film´s producers) and Emma Stone provided the NY designer Monique Pean with a lot of information about Mia so that the pieces would reflect the character´s progression throughout the film. Pean designed an aquamarine pendant – because Emma felt Mia was a Pisces – that features white-diamond pavé and 18-karat yellow gold and an engagement ring with hexagonal shaped diamond.
