Looks like another star is having quite the breakover beauty moment.

Newly single Britney Spears popped into Elton John’s annual Academy Awards viewing party Sunday night wearing a slinky, sparkling black Michael Cinco gown accessorized with de Grisogono jewels, Saint Laurent shoes and some brand-new brunette hair.

The singer, who arrived around 10:15 p.m. with her publicist and manager, quickly made the rounds at the City of West Hollywood Park, pausing for some photos with Elton and nodding her head to Emeli Sande’s live tunes.

Her stay was brief — Spears left around 11 p.m. — but she made quite an impression: According to a source, everyone was buzzing about how great she looked.

Spears went brunette in 2006, 2007 and twice in 2009, all to mixed reviews. But we think this rich chestnut color is definitely her best try yet. Tell us: Do you prefer Spears as a blonde or brunette?
