I've always been a huge fan of Kate Winslet, both for her talent as an actress and her unique approach to beauty.
Kate has never tried to fit that Hollywood size-zero stereotype and she has always looked healthy and in full bloom as a woman and a mother.
But now, she's changing it up.
The fashion world is buzzing over the April Vogue UK cover, shot by Mario Testino and featuring Kate and her newly dyed, newly spiky platinum blond hair.
And while I know Kate's going through some major life changes right now and I respect her right to do whatever she wants with her hair, I'm already missing her traditional lovely golden locks.
How about you?
You can get a better look at Kate's new platinum bob here. It really is a total 180 from her usual look.
And I think what bothers me about it is that it's very Sharon Stone. And on Kate, it's aging.
Celebitchy speculates that the new look is simply a wig, but I'm not so sure. It certainly seems like the sort of thing a newly divorced celebrity mom might do. With this new look, I see Kate proclaiming that she's single, strong, and independent, that she doesn't need a man to be happy, and that she has the kind of financial freedom that maintaining this shade of blond requires.
YOU GO, KATE.
Even if I don't think it's your best look ...
