Please look to the right at Exhibit A: Emma Stone in pink just before her 24th birthday (which is today!). Then check out Exhibit B: Stone when she was 18 years old. What a difference six years makes, right?!
In honor of Stone’s big day, we decided to take a look back at how her style has evolved since she first hit the red carpet back in April 2006 to celebrate a jean launch in Los Angeles. Clad in sand-blasted flared denim and a casual cotton graphic tank, Stone looked like the Hollywood newbie that she was. (Sidenote: Did you even remember that she once had brown hair?)
Fast-forward to 2012: Stone is a blonde (her natural hair color) and consistently kills it on the red carpet in stunning, boundary-pushing designer creations including a red Lanvin mini adorned with plastic flowers, a gothic-glam Gucci gown and her latest major look, a collared semi-sheer bubblegum-pink Valentino number that we couldn’t imagine anyone else pulling off.
Because Stone has done a complete fashion 180 since her debut, we can’t wait to see where the star will be style-wise in another year — or six! Tell us: Do you prefer Stone as a brunette or a blonde?
