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

She is such a beautiful young woman and her natural look is so appealing that the blonde look does nothing for her. I don’t know why women who are naturally beautiful mess around with what God gave them. I hope she goes back to her natural color!

Well, Katharine USED to be super hot, but that color and short haircut are dreadful. What was she thinking?

It will grow beautiful girl… we all make “hair mistakes” like this one. Don’t let yourself compromise your soul… you are a wonderful and talented artist… be mindful, listen to the inner voice… be true to you, and others will self select into and out of your life… be true to you

she looks like another fake barbie doll girl. she looks like everyone else. and it definitely isn’t her hair color, she should have done something like kim kardashian and gotten blonde highlights to see if she would like it

Cin on

She’s a gorgeous girl and I loved her brown locks. Blonde would look ok on her as a color…but that hair cut makes her look so old!
