Karlie Kloss Goes Blonde- Will It Last?
What do you think of Karlie's new look? (Self Service)
When uber-cool catwalk queen Karlie Kloss cut her shiny, glossy, golden-brown hair into a bob about a year ago, she really did start a true cropped craze the world over. Fast forward to October 2013 and it seems that Karlie has taken her bob to a whole new level- a peroxide level, to be specific. Striking a pose for Self Service magazine, Karlie’s new blonde locks totally transform her face- we didn’t think it was possible to even more gorgeous! Whether it’s temporary or permament, we think Miss Kloss looks every inch the stunning starlet and hey, we’re just loving the whole 80s, Debbie Harry feel. Make it permanent, Karlie- team Grazia beauty think you look pretty damn good.
