America’s most famous redhead is now a blonde! A week before the Oscars, Julia Roberts has debuted a brand new, much blonder do.

After a super-glam (and super-buzzy) red carpet run in January with her famous auburn locks in full force, the star had been lying low in the weeks following the death of her sister Nancy Motes. But she resurfaced in L.A. looking nearly unrecognizable in an all-black ensemble and much lighter, strawberry-blonde hair pulled into a ponytail.

Roberts has lightened up her locks before — she’s been almost golden in ads for Lancôme — but we can’t remember the last time she went this light for a non-work-related reason. She’s been really pushing the style envelope so far in 2014, so we’re excited to see what her new bright blonde shade means for her Oscars gown.

What do you think of her new hue? Do you love her blonde or are you red through-and-through? Tell us in the comments!

I have always loved Julia Roberts as an actress but hearing about these things said by sister and her husband’s former wife is really making me re-think that…………

The blonde does not suit her. Her 15 minutes of fame have come and gone….She is no logner actractive and conducts herself irratically whenever possible. Stay home and mind the babes.
