Emma Stone (Easy A, Superbad) might be one of my favorite young actresses, but I did not recognize her in these red carpet pictures at the Hollywood Palladium yesterday. As you might have heard, Emma was recently cast as Gwen Stacy, the blonde female lead in Sony’s Spider-Man reboot. Naturally, she had to dye her hair to stay faithful to the series. I love you, Emma, but you need to go back to the red as soon as you finish filming.
Dang! What a difference a hairdo makes. Although Emma’s known for playing spunky redheads, she’s actually a natural blonde, so really, the change in hair color is more like a reversion to her pre-Hollywood self. As much as I enjoy Emma’s charm and acting, I can see how the red hair helped her get ahead. Up-and-coming actresses need to have something that distinguishes them from the competition, but now that Emma’s becoming more established, she can stand out despite having the same hair color as many of her Hollywood peers.
Which look do you prefer, Lovelies? I like the red, but the blonde would look better if it were a bit warmer. You can see more pictures of her new hair at Just Jared.
