Spotted: Blake Lively ditching her blonde locks for a new, reddish hue! The Gossip Girl star stunned at the TIME 100 Gala in New York City Tuesday night, but her gorgeous green Zuhair Murad dress wasn’t the only thing onlookers were talking about. The actress — the new face of Chanel handbags — arrived on the red carpet sporting strawberry-tinged locks. “It’s for the film Hick,” Lively 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.” Colorist Rona O’Connor transformed Lively’s locks about a month ago, however, the actress managed to fly under the radar following her last public appearance at CinemaCon in early April. So how does she like her new look? “I love it,” she gushed. “I feel like Ariel.” We love Lively’s new hue, but what do you think? Tell us: What do you think of Lively’s red hair?

This color doesn’t flatter her at all… She doesn’t have the natural coloring for a redhead to pull red hair. Trust me, I’m a secret redhead under my blond hair. It definitely looks fake.

Anyone else think she looks like Bryce Dallas Howard?

Everyone is being kind, which is nice for a change, but I’m sorry, her hair isn’t really red. It looks like she dyed it with colored hairspray for Halloween and it’s starting to wash out. I’m glad she is enjoying it and hope that it looks better in person, but from here it’s an odd, totally fake hue. I’d have preferred something a bit more natural-looking. (Like an Amy Adams’ red.)

I love the red, so much. She reminds me of Ariel too haha <3
