Is Britney Spears Blonde Again?

Well, it was fun while it lasted!

Less than a month after attending an Oscars party with a new brunette hue, it looks like Britney Spears is back to blonde.

She was spotted Wednesday taking her sons to a gymnastics class in Thousand Oaks, Calif., sporting her signature sundress-and-ponytail look, but with noticeably lighter strands than she’s been sporting in the past few weeks.

And while Brit as a brunette was drawing raves from you, we have to say we’ll always be partial to her with the sun-kissed California-girl strands we’re used to.

Tell us: Do you think Spears should go all the way back to blonde? Or do you miss her darker locks already?

Britney Spears Goes Brunette!

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?

The Two Britney Spears Looks Everyone's Loving Right Now

Britney Spears is ending the year quite fashionably. That is, at least according to readers.

The superstar has landed herself in not one, but two spots in our top 10 best dressed list, which is powered by your votes. Both looks feature black dresses, but they’re very different from each other.


Currently, the X Factor judge is sitting pretty in the number-five slot with the black below-the-knee sheath, gold collar necklace and glitzy sandals she wore to the show’s finale party. (You can see the outfit from every angle here.)

She’s also ranked at number seven in a black bustier gown with sheer panels, plus patent pumps, which she slipped into for the X Factor‘s final night.

The week’s not over yet, though, so Spears still has the chance to do what no other star has and nab three spots on the list! Tell us: Which of the two outfits do you prefer on Spears?

Even though we didn’t see as many stars on the red carpet this week as last — it’s quiet in Hollywood this holiday season! — we still saw some strong trends emerge at various events. What were they? Let’s get to it!

Up: Pops of red. You can thank the holidays for this festive mini-trend, which we spotted on Hailee Steinfeld’s purse, Bella Heathcote’s dress and Rose Byrne’s jacket. Adding just a hint of the bold hue to your outfit is an easy way to look all holiday-y without going overboard.

Bold brows, blonde bangs, peek-a-boo blazers: Demi Lovato and Britney Spears gave us lots to look at on the X Factor live show Wednesday night.

Lovato sported those bold eyebrows her makeup artist promised not long ago, plus a sophisticated brocade jacket, black blouse and new brunette locks, while Spears showcased her blonde bangs and pretty waves, Monika Chiang earrings and a revealing jacket that gave us a peek at her striped bra.

We were torn about the looks — Too much? Not quite right? — so we took to Twitter to get your thoughts, and you gave us some mixed reviews:
