Here’s how this started. I saw this picture of Evan Rachel Wood looking all neat and fancy, and I wanted to show you guys. But then I saw a picture of Emma Stone looking like the most adorable girl that’s ever been, and I wanted to show you guys that, too. But since I have a lot to talk about today, I had to choose between my two favorite ladies. And, well, I couldn’t.

I know, and I usually hate this kind of nonsense, when ladies wear suits, but this isn’t just anybody, you guys. This is my new favorite, Evan Rachel Wood and everything she wears and everything she says (post May 2011) is just absolute perfection.

It’s really starting to scare me, the growing appreciation that I have for Evan Rachel Wood. It just seems like yesterday when I would see pictures of her with Marilyn Manson and gag, but now, I think she’s pretty majestic. Oh, do you want more proof?
Here are some quotes from a recent interview with Marie Claire:
On loving Justin Bieber: “I saw the movie [Never Say Never], and that’s what did it. I ended up seeing it three times — in the theaters. One of those times was the director’s cut, I’m not even kidding. I got obsessed with the kid. It’s going to be weird if I ever meet him. He’s brought so much joy to my life.”
On making out with Ryan Gosling in Ides of March: “Yeah, it was awesome. We had fun. Ryan’s amazing because he has this way about him that’s incredibly attractive, not just in a sexy way but he’s smart, he’s cool, he’s talented, he’s really creative, and he has this mysterious quality to him that drives people crazy. So yeah, it wasn’t a hard day at work.”
On what she called Marilyn Manson: “No, I called him Manson. Or just Babe.”
On her engagement to Manson: “I am glad — for both of us. We both have a lot more growing to do. I don’t think it would’ve been right, but I am glad that we were engaged. I think we needed to make a statement to each other that it was legit. So that was good.”
On being bisexual: “Yeah, that’s a big part of who I am, and it always has been for as long as I can remember. I can’t say I’m one way or the other because I’ve honestly fallen in love with a man and I’ve honestly fallen in love with a woman. I don’t know how you label that, it’s just how it is.”
On having relationships with women: “I mean, it was terrifying at first. Not because I thought it was wrong but just because I was intimidated by women. It’s a totally different arena! The approach is completely different than it is with a man but I finally let myself say, “You’ve got to go for this. It’s in you and it’s not going away.” And it was wonderful.”

Back in April, I made some pretty definitive statements about Evan Rachel Wood. I claimed that Marilyn Manson “ruined” her, which, to be fair, is a pretty easy conclusion to make. I also asserted that she needed to “shut her douchey mouth,” and again, these are just pictures, so that might still be the case. So really, I was never wrong, I just overlooked her potential to be incredibly gorgeous.
These are photos of Evan at the Venice Film Festival, and every single thing she’s doing right here is working wonders for me. How about you?

Remember those hot new photos of Evan Rachel Wood from when she first hacked off her hair? Well she’s gone and changed up a little bit more, leaving her Marilyn Manson-sympathizer clothing in a Hot Topic bargain bin and opted to raid Adam Lambert‘s leather and tight pants-infested closet.
I’ve never been a ERW fan, but as I said during the last round of publicity photos: she looks SO MUCH BETTER than she has in recent years. Love or hate the hair, you can’t deny that all of this – including leaving Manson behind for good this time (I hope) – isn’t a huge, huge improvement.
It sure beats seeing her nude, at any rate.

I always considered ERW to be the Hollywood actress most unsure of who she was with regard to her personal style. There was nothing that really stood out about her for me – aside from that whole dating Marilyn Manson thing, taking bloody nude photos, and the way obvious Dita von Teese ripoff – but this? This is seriously the best she’s ever looked, and this hairstyle, hands down, is the one for her. She looks clean, she looks healthy, and above all, she’s MEMORABLE now.
Congrats, Evan – you’ve finally found your look! Stick to it, ’cause it’s definitely working well on you, girl.
