Ashley Tisdale
didn't impress me at first. She was the one-dimensional villain of High School Musical and was playing a 16-year-old at age 23 on The Suite Life Of Zack And Cody. Still, Disney has the ability to recognize star power, and with as big of a talent pool as I'm sure they're working with, I kind of held out hope for the girl. She's had a few bumps in the road, just like anyone, but I'd like to think she's coming out on top, at least in terms of her style. Take a look at her style evolution after the cut

Since the kid pic above, Ashley's been through her moments of over-tanning and super-short skirts, but all in all she's had a pretty painless red carpet fashion track record. Now that she's rocking a pink streak in her blonde hair and a healthy glow, it's safe to say Ashley's come a long way since playing Sharpay in High School Musical.

What do you think of Ashley's style evolution? Was she better as a blonde or a brunette?
