It wasn't long ago that we reported on the divine Drew Barrymore and her newly dyed locks of possibly the perfect shade of red, remember? Well, would you look at who's next to join the copper-hued clan? It's only Blake Lively! The Gossip Girl actress was simply resplendent in a Zuhair Murad Couture gown at last night’s Time Magazine’s '100 Most Influential' Gala in New York City and proudly sported a new red tone. Er, Little Mermaid anyone?
Thing is, as of yet we’re just not certain of our feelings towards Blake’s new look. Yes, it's superbly glossy, the shade suits her skin colour wonderfully, and there's no denying a lady in red is smoking hot, but La Lively’s signature blonde locks have epitomised the quintessential Cali beach girl look for quite some time now and the change has well, really jarred us.
So we want to hear your thoughts. Do you think the new 'do is purely for a new role or do you reckon it’ll stay when Gossip Girl series 5 starts filming in July? And do you reckon the redhead look was inspired by her BFF Florence Welch? It’ll sure be interesting to see how many blondes head to the colourists to emulate the look. Any takers?
