Emily Blunt lightens her hair to a blondish red: better or worse?

fp_6656658_barm_gnomeojuliet_premiere_11_12

Emily Blunt was not with her husband John Krasinski last night at the SAGs. She was in London, promoting this odd-looking animated film, Gnomeo and Juliet. I think James McAvoy does the voice of Gnomeo? Anyway, for the event, Emily showed off her new hair – dramatically lightened to this reddish color with blonde highlights. I’ll admit, I like Emily a lot, and I like her as one of my brunettes. I don’t know what to think of her as a redhead. It doesn’t really look bad, per se, but it’s just a change that I’m not fond of.

As for the dress and the tights… train wreck. The dress is especially cheap-looking, and I don’t believe in black tights with a white dress. I’m from the South. We don’t do that.

    I’m from the South also and I hear you. You should never wear black tights with a white dress, especially ones with eyelettes which makes it totally Summery. Ew.

  2. gloaming says:

    My hair’s the same colour. Copper tones with a few blonde highlights. It’s hard to maintain and a bugger to keep nourished.

    Maybe it’s more of a gateway stage to going full on blonde. Either way, she’s better brunette.

  3. Aria says:

    I remember she was redhead in Devil wears Prada and it looked really good on her. The dress is fugly!!!

  4. Cherry Rose says:

    Her hair looks pretty good. However, those tights with that dress are not. Though she does have killer legs, I will admit that.

  5. mln76 says:

    She looks like Drew Barrymoore(especially with the guffawing) and although I adore Drew it’s a downgrade. She is way too talented to start with that light brown/blonde/bland rom-com actress look.

  6. photo jojo says:

    I really love that dress. But yeah, no on the tights.

  7. malachais says:

    Dress is funky, where is John? They never seem to go to premieres together :(

  8. Prefer the darker hair but she’s beautiful either way!

  9. embertine says:

    Adore the dress, but with the tights she looks like a courtier in a medieval palace decorated by Cruella de Ville..

  10. kelbear says:

    I like it but I don’t like it.

  11. Nina says:

    I like the red she had in Devil Wears Prada (over the top red). This just looks like it’s washed out and faded. Blergh.

  12. sapphire says:

    DO NOT LIKE-she’s starting a Katy Perry thing-minus the boobs.

  13. danielle says:

    I like her hair this color – I thought the brown was too dark.

  14. dorothy says:

    A Southern Belle would never wear a white sun dress in the winter. Ever!

  15. OriginalGracie says:

    Emily will never be okay in my book since she stole my one and only love John Krasinski. I can’t forgive her.

    But I did enjoy her in The Devil Wears Prada.

    So lighten your hair, Emily, but watch your back!

  16. melinda says:

    I think she looks great with that hair color, but it is a big change. The white dress/ black tights thing doesn’t necessarily bother me. It is the combination of THAT white dress, with eyelit accents paired with black tights that is a problem.

  17. nikki says:

    Love the dress with the tights

  18. My Darling Pinkett says:

    I like the hair color on her. She’s beautiful either way. And the dress is pretty, but would have been better without the tights. I don’t think it looks cheap. I like it when celebrities don’t spend thousands of bucks on a dress they’re only going to wear once. Somtimes it’s nice to wear soemthing simple and inexpensive:)

  19. Hakura says:

    I don’t care for this in-between hair color. It makes her look washed-out, & the hair looks ‘dry’ at the ends, & unstyled.

    With everyone else on the bad top/tights color combination. Southern belles would never wear that top during winter.

  20. Bodhi says:

    I’m from the South & I LOVE her outfit. I don’t know about a white dress in the middle of winter, but I still think it is super cute. Of course I wear black tights with everything; my office is an ice box & its the only way I can wear dresses or skirts in the winter

  21. Jaana says:

    Worse:now she is just one of “them”..she no longer stands out.

  22. KateNonymous says:

    The color is okay, but the cut looks really bedraggled–and the outfit is wrong in all kinds of ways.

  23. Siren6 says:

    I like the hair! It’s a nice color for spring.

  24. Angel says:

    Love the hair, hate the dress. :)

  25. ezra says:

    Yuck. She’s way hotter brunette.

  26. beth says:

    brunette still suits her best -

  27. Camille says:

    Awful, awful, awful. It looks super dry and not attractive.

    Also how huge are her NEW teeth? Yowzers. Get those things filed down girl!

  28. Anna says:

    Something on People.com said she was slowly going blond over the next few months for a role. Of course, I can’t find out now. But the dress is AWFUL – with or without the tights.

  29. Jacquie says:

    I like her with darker hair or the red from “Devil wears Prada”. hopefully it’s just for a role! (fingers crossed)

  30. Michelle says:

    Not even a close comparison – dark hair suits her a million times more. But, if it’s for a role, whaddya gonna do? I just hope she dyes it back the second she’s done filming! With dark hair she’s so classic looking…not so much with this color.

  31. Ruffian9 says:

    Um…prefer it darker on her.

    Great legs though.

  32. Henriette says:

    Love the hair color. Hate it on her.

  33. Crash2GO2 says:

    The hair is not only a bad color for her, but it is looking really rough. It needs a good condition and blow out.

    The tights with that dress are awful IMO. Makes her legs look bigger than they really are. Oh well – I should be so lucky to be half as pretty as she is. :)

  34. Matt says:

    The thick black tights is a ‘London’ thing. I lived in London for years and lots of hipster girls work this look.

  35. MyKosmo says:

    She definitely looks better with the dark hair somehow, although she doesn’t look bad here, but more washed out and bland. I don’t care for the black tights and white dress combo.

  36. wunderkindt says:

    Uh, just why is this person supposed to be attractive? She just looks plain average to me.

  37. Cel says:

    With darker hair her eyes stand out. The current colour is just blah and her ends look badly split.

  38. samab says:

    she resemble to kate perry here.not in a good way

  39. Alicia says:

    She is definitely pregnant – the jaw is a dead give away. You saw it here first!!

  40. Brandon says:

    Her legs are killer and I love the tights!!!!
