Move over grey days, it's all about being white hot! That's if Chanel muse and all round catwalk queen, Abbey Lee Kershaw is anything to go by. She sported her freshly dyed platinum blonde tresses with a blood red lip at the Chanel store opening in New York last night and we are LOVIING her new look!
‘I was ready for a big change,’ she told Modelinia when asked why she'd gone for such a drastic transformation, and right before the S/S '11 shows kick off. ‘I only dyed it two days ago - it took seven hours and I didn’t speak for another four! I’ve never dyed my hair before.’ Well Ms Kershaw is one brave lady!
And the model evidently welcomed the chance to get edgier, simply saying ‘it was time to go white’. So has she been taking inspiration from fellow model Agyness Deyn who went all Eminem on us earlier this year? Either way, ‘unless a designer asks for it be changed', this is the new Abbey we'll be seeing this season and we can't WAIT to see that 'do on the catwalk!
But what do you make of Abbey's new look? And with the likes of Michelle Williams and Reese Witherspoon also lightening up, will you be giving the platinum trend a try?
