She may be the queen of the Upper East Side, but with Blake Lively’s signature blond locks, she’s ever the quintessential California beach girl. Imagine everyone’s surprise when the “Gossip Girl” star showed up at Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People In The World gala on Tuesday night. Looking like Ariel from the “Little Mermaid“, Lively debuted a brand new red-hot look. Mind you, it’s probably difficult for the stunning actress to look horrible.
Perhaps, this was an attempt for Blake to prove she’s worthy of Time’s inclusion of her on the influential list. We’ll see how many blonds head to their hair colorists tomorrow to emulate her new look. Most likely the color switch-up is for an upcoming role. She’s signed on to star in Oliver Stone’s upcoming film “Savages“. It’s also rumored that Blake is up for the role of Glinda in Sam Raimi’s “Oz: The Great and Powerful“. Check out Blake’s crimson new locks below.
Red hair certainly suits her, doesn’t it? I never would’ve guessed it prior to seeing it. It probably shouldn’t come as a surprise, considering Blake’s older sister, Robyn Lively, is a natural redhead. Robyn is best known for her role on “Doogie Howser, M.D.“.
I wonder if Blake will keep her new look when “Gossip Girl’s” fifth season begins filming in July? Is Blake a better blond or ginger? Marilyn Monroe or Jessica Rabbit? Sound off below and don’t forget to cast your vote.
