Jena Malone Has Red Hair (And Matching Ginger Eyebrows) and It Looks Ah-Mazing
Unlike some (incorrect) individuals who think gingers are lame, I am a huge fan of redheads. I mean, Benedict Cumberbatch is a natural redhead! Okay, more like strawberry blonde head, but bear with me. There are so many smokin' hot celebrities who go red or were born red. Emma Stone, Evan Rachel Wood, Amy Adams, Rupert Grint... I could go on. And I will, because indie queen Jena Malone has dyed her hair red and her eyebrows to match. Although I was a fan of her recent edgy blonde 'do, I think the change looks great on her.
Malone unveiled her new look on the red carpet for the New York Film Festival premiere of the new film St. Vincent. She paired the bright red locks with bold red brows that are so cool that even Cara Delevingne might be feeling a bit threatened right about now. Better yet, the actress matched her ginger head to her outfit — a white dress embroidered with blood red flowers, a little red clutch, and red patent leather booties. The shoes were kind of an odd choice, with an awkward cut that doesn't really suit a bare leg, but the rest of the ensemble was so cool that I'll give her a pass.
I have a special place in my heart for Jena Malone, who's roles in such films as Donnie Darko and Saved! introduced me to the concept of the edgy/weird/cool girl. Her best role, IMO, is the troubled Margie Flynn in The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys , which you should watch if just to peep an adorably baby-faced Emile Hirsch and startlingly precocious young Kieran Culkin. But I digress. Let's get back to the hair.
