Remember when she was a lukewarm fashion mess? And it was all bland neutrals and chokers and stuff? Well, suddenly Kristen is 2-for-2 on day dresses in Venice. This entire look — yes, even the shoes; orange would’ve been welcome, but those are still a very attractive cut — sings for me, and suddenly she’s rocketing up my list of people who I hope get invited to everything, ever, just so we can see what this new leaf looks like and whether she’s flipped it over for good.

Also, whenever I see this hair, I think of Madeline — she of the book series. I’ve decided this is what Madeline grew up to be: sophisticated as hell,  still sassy, still bobbed.
