Over the years, Julianne Moore has become an iconic redhead — even when she was blonde in Far From Heaven, she was still indelibly in our minds with that fiery hair. So, seeing her strolling in N.Y.C.’s West Village yesterday with a dramatically shorter and lighter ‘do took us totally off guard! Julianne’s lightened up to a pale strawberry blonde for her role in a new thriller, Blindness (due out in March ’08). We’re not sure what to think of it of the new look — it looks great, but we already miss the vibrant red locks. We want to know what you think! Tell us: Do you like Julianne’s new lighter do? Or do you like her natural color better?

It’s horrible she looks like she got a really bad home job. who done that to her!!!!

I like her with the Red hair better, her skin looks more “peachy” with the red hair, but the “blonde” doesnt really look like blonde to me, it looks like the color you would get if you naturally had dark hair and put some blonde color in it, and the outcome=Orange-ish

I think it’s a nice change for the summer, but I definatley think she should go back to red in the fall.

This woman would be gorgeous with no hair at all. The natural red is by far more fabulas and sophisticated. Obviously the change is for her movie role, so that’s fine. But, just for sake of discussion, I think very few people look good with dyed blond hair, and I don’t think I have ever confused a blonde dye job for natural if you know what I mean. Younger chicks can get away with it for a while because it kind of looks like a fun, party girl. As a person gets older, (and probably has been dying their hair for a long time), it really looks gross. All yellowy, broken off, like some housewife from the suburbs.

Julianne is so gorgeous with her red hair and pale skin! I don’t begrudge her for trying something new — is it for a movie role? — but I love her as a redhead and think it goes better with her beautiful skin.

she looks better with the red hair because it just makes her look naturally beautiful

Chelsea on

The blonde makes her look washed out as it doesn’t match her sking tone at all.

Even thought both looks are cute…I’d say blonde ’cause it lights up her face wayyy more.

Julianne was so distinctive and gorgeous as a redhead. Her hair was long, shiny and healthy looking. This color seems too brassy. Though I still think she’s pretty, she looked best with red.

She looks aweful! it ages her by like 10 years!

Please go back to your beautiful natural color the way god intended. The blonde completely washes her out.
