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

GASP!!! oh nonono. Not a good look for her at all. She looks like an old maid. Katharine; bring back the brown!!

It makes her looks sooo much older. Horrible!! Way too much upkeep when your hair is naturally so dark. Change it back to dark.

Her hair looks ashy.

Wow! I think that is a great look!! She has two singles available on iTunes right now. They are amazing!!! She is a gifted vocalist . Some of you should take the time to listen to Had it All and Say Goodbye ( she sang Say Goodbye on CSI:NY this past spring). Hope she is a red head next.

Where’s Pattiepage, Rosie, or Barbara? No comment yet from Patricia Vancourt? Hmmmm finally get a real job?
