There are a lot of reasons Emma Stone is our imaginary BFF: she's hysterical, has a killer laugh, is well-dressed, and does a cat eye like it's nobody's business. Essentially, she's the greatest. So how better to celebrate our bestie's B-day--which is today!--than to give you a rundown on how to copy her signature style? (OK, showing up at her house with an ice cream cake and balloons would be better, but would also be a little weird.)

Stone makes a great style crush because she dresses girly, but not too girly. She's known to pair a sweet party dress with a minimal jewelry or layer a white T-shirt underneath a cocktail dress to tone down a cutesy look. She's also the queen of pink lipstick, which we can tell you how to do, but has also mastered the art of the nonchalant updo, something we desperately need her hair stylist to tell us how to get ASAP. (Hear that, Mara Roszak? We need you!)

So celebrate Stone with our guide to the five essential pieces you need to cop her style. And by watching Easy A, obvs.
