So Glamour magazine did a clever 42-photograph look (phew!) at Kristen Stewart’s style evolution from her beginnings as Jodie Foster’s daughter in Panic Room right up to last week’s MTV appearance, chronicling the highs and the lows of her sartorial choices.

Only thing is, I don’t agree with them almost 90% of the time – do you? Does Kristen look as if she’s “rocking” a Marchesa dress at a European premiere? Is she not avantgarde enough for a one-shouldered white number? Is pale really more interesting? (Or is it an Irish affliction that I looked at every single photograph and thought, “ah now, love, would you not put in a bit of tan?”)

Have a look through the gallery, then come back here and tell me what you think of K Stew’s Hollywood look. One good thing that came of that 10-minute reading session, however, was the realisation that I want to wear exactly this, every day for the rest of my life:

It helps that she’s a bit of a babe, and that her hair and make-up are flawless, but I also love the chestnut tones in her hair*, not to mention the defiant stance.

* Speaking of hair, I had a discussion recently about why and how European women seem to have such amazing hair. It was while my sister was home from New York with her Floridian fella, who remarked on the fact that so many Irish women dye their hair. “Seriously,” he said. “What’s with that? Do you guys never like your natural hair colour?” And it got me to thinking: Italian woman, for example, dye their hair just as much as we do – they just dye it better. They stick to their natural tones and accentuate what they’ve got, rather than going our route and deviating wildly from our God-given hues. Which made me resolve to try to go as close to my natural hair colour as possible for a while, to see just how that feels. Maybe, just maybe, it’ll feel that little bit more natural – and a whole lot classier.
