It’s been over a month since Katharine McPhee gave PEOPLE an exclusive sneak peek at her new platinum look on her album cover. Yet she still managed to wait until Fashion Week to reveal the look on the red carpet. Katharine spoke with PEOPLE backstage at the Tommy Hilfiger show in Manhattan’s Bryant Park tents about what prompted her to trade her signature sexy brunette style for being a blonde-bobbed bombshell. “I have a record coming out in January called Unbroken,” she explains, “and I’ve been working on it for the last year and it’s been a big artistic development. It sort of felt like I was shedding skin, so I was literally shedding layers of hair.” Tell us: What do you think of Katharine’s blonde hair? –Reporting by Jeffrey Slonim

I sound like I am the only one that think it actually looks great. I think she looks like Katherine Heigl

She really couldn’t do anything to make me like her less. I think she’s untalented and I’m not the least bit interested in anything she says or does.

Horrible hair

Jenn on

The color looks great on her, the dye job however is horrible

What’s the big deal? Give it a few days, it’ll be a different color.

I love her in the short, blonde hair! It makes her big eyes really pop. She looks beautiful!

Kristin on

Gosh i hope thats a wig…so sad because she is beautiful…just not as a blonde!

I love her brunette hair the best. It’s much more healthier and shinier looking. Please Katherine, go back to your brunette hair. You don’t have to change the color of your hair because you have a brand new album coming out!
