Who: Emma Stone

Where: At the London premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man 2

What She’s Wearing: A marigold-yellow Atelier Versace dress with matching Swarovski crystal beading on the shoulders and waist, plus a David Webb necklace featuring two lion heads with emerald eyes

Why She Nailed It: If a picture is worth 1,000 words, then please allow this gif at left to provide 3,000 words for us while we gape at this truly showstopping ensemble. Until now, Stone’s been sticking to menswear-inspired outfits and mod minis on her press tour, so the impact of her hitting the carpet in this incredibly romantic, curve-skimming gown is doubled.

She wisely let the bold color and open back keep the focus, adding only a chic jeweled collar and delicate sandals. And the hair and makeup are on point; the siren waves and just-bright-enough lip give her a glamorous ’40s vibe that really works for her. In fact, if you turned these photos black-and-white, you might mistake her for a real old Hollywood star — but then we’d miss out on the stunning shade of the dress.

Tell us: What do you think of Stone’s outfit? Are you as big a fan as we are?

Donations Top $99,000 for Mom Arrested for Leaving Kids in Car During Job Interview

04/10/2014 at 09:00 AM EDT

A Phoenix woman arrested after leaving her two kids in a hot vehicle during a job interview is fighting to clear her name in court, with the support of a New Jersey woman who has raised more than $99,000 to help her effort.

Unemployed and on food stamps, Shanesha Taylor went to the job interview last month at a Scottsdale insurance company.

The 35-year-old wasn’t able to find a sitter, so she left her 2-year-old son and 6-month old baby in her Dodge Durango with the key still in the ignition and the windows rolled down an inch.

A witness found the infant crying hysterically and sweating profusely as temperatures inside the SUV exceeded 100 degrees.

Taylor was arrested after returning to the vehicle, and her tearful mug shot later caught the attention of 24-year-old Amanda Bishop of New Jersey.

Bishop said she was inspired to set up a fundraising web page for Taylor because she could relate to growing up in a family that doesn’t have a lot of money.

“I had a mother and family in general who struggled raising us and had to rely on other resources to provide for us and sometimes made not the greatest choices,” Bishop said.

Taylor pleaded not guilty Monday at her arraignment.

Concern over Safety

Prosecutors point out that her actions put the safety of her children in danger.

According to court documents, Scottsdale firefighters found the vehicle’s windows rolled down only an inch and no running air conditioning to keep the children cool.

The baby was described as wearing a short-sleeve shirt over a long-sleeve shirt, as well as a blanket. Taylor arrived back at the vehicle more than an hour after her interview time, the documents said.

“Everything is focused on the mother and understandably so. It seems to be a very compelling human-interest story,” County Attorney Bill Montgomery said at a recent news conference. “But I’m equally concerned and compelled about the circumstances those two children were in.”

Montgomery said it’s too soon to determine if Taylor will receive a prison term or face losing custody of her children. Her offenses could amount to a sentence ranging from probation to seven years in prison, prosecutors said.

Neither Taylor nor her court-appointed attorney has responded to requests for comment.

Fundraising Efforts

Bishop established the fundraising site on YouCaring.com with the goal of raising $9,000. She was flabbergasted when the site reached the goal in four days and then exceeded it by tens of thousands of dollars.

The site also has received more than a thousand comments, some of which accuse Bishop and other supporters of endorsing child abuse. Bishop said Taylor should not be condemned for one bad decision.

“She could have been at a bar or at a club and leaving her children in the car,” Bishop said. “Here’s a woman who is an example of someone who is trying – who is trying to better her situation and doing what she can to provide for her children.”

Wrestling Legend The Ultimate Warrior Dies at 54

WWE star “The Ultimate Warrior,” born James Brian Hellwig, has died, it was announced in a statement posted on the WWE website Tuesday. He was 54.

No cause of death has been given.

Hellwig, who had legally changed his named to “The Ultimate Warrior” in 1993, had carved out an indelible place in wrestling history. With his trademark make-up, which some described as something akin to KISS, and neon ring garb, along with his flowing blond locks, Warrior began his professional career in 1987.

He later rose to the top to defeat Hulk Hogan to earn his spot as WWE champion during their famed WrestleMania VI bout.

He was stoic and never broke character as he created a fan base, competing against such other ’90s stars as Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels, The Washington Post reported.

Warrior, who always was announced as hailing from “parts unknown” – which only added to his mystique – paved the path for other future stars, including actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

He left the spotlight in 1998, retiring to become a motivational speaker and to star in his own workout tapes, said The Post. He also created comic books about his character

Warrior’s death came just days after he had returned to the WWE to be honored in its Hall of Fame ceremony in New Orleans last Saturday, USA Today reported.

He had recently appeared at WrestleMania 30 and Monday Night Raw, where he donned a mask, which replicated his trademark ring make-up, and a long jacket similar to his previous costumes.

“No WWE talent becomes a legend on their own,” he told the Raw crowd. “Every man’s heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs breath their final breath. And if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them believe deeper in something that’s larger than life, then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized by the storytellers – by the loyalty, by the member of those who honor him, and make the running the man did live forever.”

Tributes quickly poured in for the wrestling legend, whose death left many stunned. “We are all so sad that the Ultimate Warrior has passed away,” WWE CEO and chairman Vince McMahon said on Twitter.

Noted wrestling star Chris Jericho in a Tweet: “Devastated to hear of the passing of @UltimateWarrior. He was a childhood hero of mine & he vs @HulkHogan WM6 is still one of the best ever.” Added Hulk Hogan on Twitter: “RIP WARRIOR. only love. HH.”

Warrior is survived by his wife Dana and two daughters.
