Brunettes Are Having The Best Week Ever On Our Best & Worst Beauty List (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Blondes may have all the fun, but the celebrities on this week's beauty list prove that brunettes do things better.

Kerry Washington attended the NAACP Image Awards wearing a long, dark side braid. We spotted Cheryl Cole at the Roberto Cavalli fashion show sporting a shiny, slicked-back hairdo. Meanwhile, Kat Dennings caused quite a commotion outside the "Late Show With David Letterman" with retro-inspired waves.

See these beautiful brunettes below (plus more standout hair and makeup).

BEST: Kerry Washington

The "Scandal" star looked radiant on the red carpet with a goddess braid hairstyle, subtle smokey eyes and peachy-coral lipstick.

BEST: Cheryl Cole

We are captivated by Cheryl's contoured makeup, bronze eyeshadow, long lashes and sleek hairdo that shows off her stunning earrings.

BEST: Lupita Nyong'o

Only Lupita can look lovely in bright blue eyeliner and and red lipstick. The vibrant makeup is anchored by her simple haircut, groomed brows and luminous skin.

BEST: Kat Dennings

She may be one of "2 Broke Girls," but Kat is looking very rich with her perfect porcelain complexion, shimmering gray eyeshadow, berry lips and side-swept waves.

BEST: Olivia Munn

We love that Olivia didn't cover up her gorgeous freckles with tons of face makeup. Instead, we get to see this raven-haired beauty's natural glow with just a pop of color on her cheeks, dark lipstick and a few coats of mascara on her top lashes.

WORST: Rumer Willis

If Rumer's orange hair and cobweb-style black dress was part of a Halloween costume, we could give this get-up a pass. But it's not.

WORST: Courtney Love

OK, we know that this is Courtney's schtick, but there's absolutely no reason why she couldn't take just two minutes to brush her matted hair and reapply her tea rose lipstick.

WORST: Taryn Manning

Between Taryn's awful blonde hair color, clumpy lashes and unflattering fuchsia lip color, we're just really confused about what she was trying to achieve.

WORST: Elise Neal

The 47-year-old actress looks amazing, but this heavy, ill-shaped wig ages her quite a bit. Plus, we can't stop staring at the face powder that just washes out her caramel skin tone.

WORST: Ashley Greene

Ashley Greene is orange. That is all.
