Do blondes have more fun? These ladies say: hells yeah! Whether dabbling in the hair colour with a quick dye job or sticking to a trademark bombshell style, plenty of celebrities have given us blonde-spiration in 2012.
Take Blake Lively, for example, who's proved her blonde ambition by working enviably luscious locks on the red carpet. Then there's Miley Cyrus who made like Michelle Williams this year when she (GASP) cropped her extension-ey mane and hit the bottle - of the peroxide variety, of course.
Speaking of beauty makeovers, Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman gave the hair hue a go when she ditched her signature brunette tresses for a lighter, brighter look in September. Talk about show-stopping! And lest we forget colour chameleon Rihanna who went blonde for, ooh, five minutes when promoting silver screen debut, Battleship.
It seems January Jones and Emma Stone, meanwhile, can't decide which way to go, as they to and fro between blonde and red barnets. As for Rita Ora, she's made the colour her beauty signature, channelling Gwen Stefani and ultimate blonde queen Marilyn Monroe by pairing the look with a bold red lip.
So take a look through our blonde hair hall of fame above to see where these golden goddesses rank against the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow and Cara Delevingne - and do let us know who gets YOUR vote...
