Lena Dunham: 'Change is Good' [Instagram]

Lena Dunham, writer and director of TV hit show Girls, perplexed fans this weekend when she posted this image of her new look: a platinum blonde bowl-cut. 'Change is Good,' she captioned alongside the striking selfie. 

Whilst she's always been fashionably unpredictable, a little 'out there' and never too precious about her personal style, Lena's wiggy new look set twitter tongues a-wagging about the truth behind those bangs. It's not beyond the chameleon who, after wrapping on season two of the hit series immediately chopped her hair into a pixie crop, to have taken the colour plunge.

Let's not forget, she's only just finished shooting the latest series. 'That's a wrap on season 4 of @girlsHBO- more love for this cast and crew than my little heart can contain! CC: @campsucks', she tweeted. But there's been some speculation as to whether she's merely been rifling through the props department. 


A later, super-cute pic from Ms Dunham's instagram then confirmed that this new look is here to stay. Taken at a close friend's wedding ('2 sets of sister-friends, 23 years strong. Jersey got married in yellow <3' she posted), Lena looks every bit demure and uber blonde in this familial portrait. Her soft side parting looks a little more 'every day' than the severe bowl-cut of her previous post. Lena is definitely settling into this look - and doesn't she look adorable?

Yes, change is good Lena! And whilst we don't know how long she'll keep the ice-blonde look - whatever style this girl rocks, she owns it. Her individuality, confidence and intellect give the best glow of all. So what's your verdict?
