With all the recent buzz surrounding brunette locks, the sentiment that blondes have more fun has certainly been put to the test this fall. But these five women made a case for the power of the lighter hue, appearing on the red carpet in a range of flaxen tones that paired beautifully with lined hazel and blue eyes, rosy complexions and subtly glossed smiles. Actress Emma Stone showed off a more playful take on the look with a whispy updo and pretty petal pink lips, while catwalker Karolina Kurkova was every bit the seductress with a slick side part and smudged smoky gaze. It was perhaps model Erin Heatherton, however, who made the strongest statement, pairing her girl-next-door honey strands and freckles with a gorgeous luminescent blue shadow and a peekaboo Jason Wu gown that gave new definition to being the life of the party.
