Emma Stone was a vision in violet at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's Annual Grants Banquet in Beverly Hills on Thursday. The 27-year-old actress, who stars in the upcoming romantic musical La La Land alongside Ryan Gosling, slipped into a purple Roland Mouret sheath dress with black detailing and strappy black stilettos for the star-studded event. The dress's relatively simple front was punctuated by an elaborate open back covered in sheer black-and-white lace detailing. A black zipper ran the length of its back, ending in a slit that showed off her toned legs.

A few months after beginning the transition from platinum blonde back to auburn locks, Stone styled her ombré lob in relaxed beachy waves and a deep side part. Her signature coral lip and a dramatic smoky eye finished the glamorous red carpet look.

Stone was joined by Justin Timberlake to present this year's batch of grants to nonprofit entertainment-related organizations and scholarship programs.

A total of $2 million was bestowed on deserving organizations last night alone.
