Another noticeable (and also much needed improvement) was her hair - she's rid the mullet in favour of a long ponytail, fake or not I think this is her secret. The fact that a change in hairstyle can make you feel a million dollars is a little sad, but oh so true.
I was starting to lose hope for Kristen, her red carpet looks were literally the worst of any celebrity over the last year - I just don't understand how her stylist could have cocked it up that much. However, the past is the past and she seems to have turned a new leaf - not only is this look a complete winner, her recent UK Elle editorial (which you can see here) was to-die-for and so, my love for her is reignited.
This Flaunt editorial just goes to show that she literally has got her mojo back, I posted about her Interview editorial last October which is still my favourite Kristen shoot but this is pretty cute...
I know, I know I'm fickle with my celebrity crushes. Kristen hasn't regained girl crush status just yet but if she keeps this whole dressing-good thing up, then who knows! What do you think of Kristen, have you forgiven and forgotten or just banished her from your peripheral altogether?
