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?

Britney is like; my daughter, my friend, my sister my cousin, my all besides God and my family. She is one of a kind ….love her and 99% of her music.
This hair color does look amazing on her. It is definitely a keeper.
I think i will try that color myself …..

Of course she looks best as a brunette because it is her natural color. The same goes for Jessica Simpson. They bleach their hair blonde and wear wigs and extensions and people tend to forget that they are natural brunettes, which is much more flattering.

Love it! I have always loved her as a brunette. I think it makes her look classy and sophisticated. I wish she would stick to it instead of going back to her traditional blonde look. Lookin good Brit Brit!!

Looks great! Much better as a brunette than as a blonde. Brown suits her. She should keep it.

Wow Britney looks great here! The best I’ve seen her look in a long time. Brunette is her natural color. Here she reminds me a bit of the way she looked in her “From the Bottom of my Broken Heart” and “Born to Make You Happy” videos. Go Brit!
