Better off Brunette

Blond does not work out so well for everyone, myself included. I'd have to say these ladies look a lot better as brunettes.

Rose McGowan

Natalie Portman

Kirstie Alley




Kate Beckinsdale

Isabella Rossellini

Halle Berry

Elizabeth Taylor

Angelina Jolie

Alanis Morissette


Amy Winehouse

Egad! It has a lot to do with when their hair and skin are a little too close to the same color, not a good look! Its like where are those pretty features amongst all that straw color?? heh..the last few are horrendous, especially e taylor and amy winehouse...shudder...

Jake Hammell said...

Kate Beckinsale isn't so bad. But than that *shudder*. Strangely enough, I was thinking the exact same thing as your blog title when I met this strange girl who was in my house this morning. Her blonde hair made her look almost albino.

Dan W Johnson said...

You are correct. Great eyebrows on Isabella...

Penny said...

It's kind of funny how the blondes who went brunette all still looked fine to me,but these brunettes who went blonde basically all suck donkey balls.With the exception of Kate Beckinsale.She looks pretty no matter what.But even then,she does look better with her dark hair.

I guess some people just need to(some cases- MUST!)stay away from peroxide...

Pretty Little World said...

I'm envious of Rose McGowan because she can pull off brown, black, and flame red --- but you are certainly correct, blonde does not become her.

Alicia @ boylerpf said...

What's with Rossellini's caterpillars? Yeeoow!! Portman was so cute with the really short dark hair...definitely NOT a blonde!

erin@designcrisis said...

That picture of Isabella Rossellini is fantastic. I NEED those earrings!

Char said...

alicia took my comment! what the hell are those things on isabella's face???? yeech

Absolutely Not Martha said...

my goodness, i thought isabella was a dude before i saw the name. and alanis looks a little like miley here. yes--brunette to all of them. (though kate still looks very pretty with blonde.)

Kellie said...

Holy Hell what is going on w/ those brows Isabella!?!?!

And I agree w/ all of those except for Kate. She's hot regardless.

Diane said...

Agreed x 10. Especially with that of Natalie Portman. She is one saucy brunette. And when she had short hair, I just about melted.

down and out chic said...

yikes, i totally agree! and what is up w/amy winehouse, somebody force her into rehab already!

Betsy Head, Affordable Interior Design said...

Yep, stick with the brunette.

NODtoMOD said...

okay im totally feeling this! brunette is wayyy better! i just dyed my hair red....from dark dark brown....change isnt always good. im going back to brunette tomorrow!;(

The Beauty File said...

SO true, right on. I think Natalie should never be blonde & neither should Kate B. I don't have strong feelings either way for the rest, but those two are so dramatically more gorgeous as brunettes!

diane said...

Isabella probably looks back at that photo and wonders what she possibly could have been thinking.
If you squint, Elizabeth Taylor looks like the Joker.
Amy Winehouse, doesn't matter what color; just give her a paper bag.

...love Maegan said...

Amy Winehouse is so pretty!


Agreed ...100% these ladies all look better dark!

the gleam of rose tea said...

haha great post. very true! thanks for the add.

sexypoet said...

kate b's hair isn't bad at all but, the rest yuck!

Milly said...

Kate Bekinsale doesnt look bad...but the rest i agree with you

Kim said...

Yikes to some of them - Isabella! Angelina! Nathalie! Rose!!

I had one of these moments in my life - in university I went platinum. It was frightening - blonde hair on an Indian girl - double yikes!

miriam said...

sooo true!

why do people dye their hair? i should really but don't mind my greys... ;)

Clare said...

Amy Winehouse pic made me laugh out loud. Okay, Isabella is one of the most gorgeous women on the planet. What the hell happened to her that day? eek. Oh, I think Kate Beckinsdale looks pretty there.

Chrystina said...

I agree with absolutely every single one. While Kate Beckinsale and Halle look good in their pictures... they looks SOOO much better as a brunette. And Natalie Portman is NOT allowed to be a blonde, that almost makes me want to cry. Haha

Every one needs to die their hair back if they havent already haha <3

LENORENEVERMORE said...

~Thanks for interpreting my 'Martha dream'...you are too funnnie (truly DROLLgirl you!) You are right- I may have a certifiable girl crush...but NOT on Martha...BUT Bea Arthur!!! ~whahaha! (her deep sexy voice mmm-mmm...) Anywhoo, have a great weekend okie*

Elizabeth Marie said...

Brunettes rule, dahhling. I hope you're having a fab day.

I hate seeing Rose McGowan blonde...it seriously disturbs me, because I love her so.

xoxo,
Liz

Diana said...

isabella looks scary!! look at her eyebrows!!!!!!!!

Chessa! said...

I agree that every single woman here should be a brunette or at least lightr brown...as for Halle Berry she looks so amazing in anything. I love this photo from the most recent Baazar issue. I was disappointed with the very short article/interview but the images are divine.

Hanako66 said...

I totall agree!! perfect examples!

Hanako66 said...

you know who I just thought of that may be the one exception...Shakira

Emz said...

Agreed! Oh man. Angelina Jolie really needs to stay brunette. And Amy Winehouse kind of looks awful either way...

Pen Pen said...

TOO true!!! My friend Brit Brit wants to go blond, but I tell her NO!!

alissa said...

holy shite some of those are frightening! i definitely agree. i think for the most part people should stick to the general tone they were born with. feel free to play a little. but dont stray.

karate chops and unicorns,
alissa

Big Red said...

So true!

Mermaid said...

As madly in love with Rose McGowan as I am, she definitely needs to lay off the bleach. I will forgive her though because I once went blonde and it was not good.

But my god, that Amy Winehouse photo is ridiculous.

thereddeer said...

I think I agree with everyone of those!

Julia said...

I agree with you, especially by Amy Winehouse, Angelina Jolie and Natalie Portman. So much better in brilliant brunette!!
xoxo

K @ Blog Goggles said...

Eewww... Angelina looks awful. Amen.

insomniaclolita said...

EWWW Angelina Jolie should never dye her hair blond ever again :P

Janelle said...

I'd have to say Amy Winehouse looks the worst as a blonde. my eyes are blinded!

Mademoiselle Frou-Frou said...

you are SO right - each of these people look better with dark hair. some are downright horrific!
xox

carina said...

oh man, I totally agree.
amy winehouse - whats going on?!!!

Elizabeth Marie said...

Brunettes are just hotter. Damn we rule.

On another note...I think hip hop is calling YOUR NAME.

Jala Pfaff said...

E.Taylor and I.Rosselini look seriously scary.

Girl Japan said...

Oh my gosh!!!!!! Blond is not doing them justice at all! UGHD! Boink!

Lindley said...

whoooooaaaa amy winehouse. yikes. isabella's got some serious brows/caterpillars.

tablet for drawing said...

Well, maybe if Kate Beckinsale's hair didn't look so fake, and if Kirstie Alley went a shade darker, thoy could pull of blonde, but just maybe. The rest, not a chance.
