  • British actress joined by boyfriend Andrew Garfield at Benefit Gala

    Despite sporting a pair of glasses made out of blue pipe cleaners, American actress Emma Stone still managed to look positively gorgeous at a charity gala in NYC last night.

    The 23-year-old actress was lending her support to the Worldwide Orphans Foundation at its seventh annual benefit gala, slipping on the unusual eyewear and posing with the evenings hosts Amy Poehler and Will Arnett.


    Wearing a Calvin Klein Collection skirt, top, and clutch, Stone giggled away on the red carpet, obviously enjoying her unusual eye-wear which are part of the WWO’s campaign to highlight the plight of orphaned children.

    The idea for the glasses came after WWO founder Dr Jane Aronson watched a four-year-old orphan make a pair of glasses out of pipe cleaners during a trip to Ethiopia last year.

    Aronson says the comical eyewear symbolises ‘optimism, faith, joy and hope’.

    Emma’s rumoured boyfriend Andrew Garfield also attended the NYC soiree, but posed separately. The couple met while filming The Amazing Spider-Man film, due for release next year.
