Blake Lively goes for fiery red hair [Poll]
Blake Lively has said buh-bye to her blond bombshell status -- the "Gossip Girl" star has a new hair color, officially changing from towhead to redhead.
Lively, who will star in "The Green Lantern" this summer, stepped out Wednesday at the Time 100 Most Influential People in the World Gala with her signature blond locks coated in a shade of crimson for a movie role with Alec Baldwin, Chloe Moretz and Rory Culkin.
"It's for the film 'Hick,' " she told People. "I thought [my character] needed red hair. It helps when you're playing a role, when I don't feel like myself. And I don't really feel like myself with red hair."
The new face of Chanel handbags wowed onlookers in her green Zuhair Murad gown, but it was her 'do that stole the show.
"I love it," she said. "I feel like Ariel."
Aside from the Little Mermaid, Lively joins other famous redheads Julia Roberts, Isla Fisher, Julianne Moore, Amy Adams and Joy Behar. Which one is your favorite?
