Today John Boehner urged Congress to support President Obama's call for strikes against Syria. In other news, Kim Kardashian went blond. Yes, hard to believe, isn't it? Boehner agreeing with Obama ... oh, you mean you're shocked about Kim going blond? I KNOW. No one saw that one coming! And no, I don't think it's a wig.
Kim's got kind of an ombre dye job, so her roots are still dark, a gentler jump into blond than an all-over dye job would be. I don't love it. But you know what? It could be a LOT worse.
At least it's not a pixie cut. We've all seen women chop off all their hair right after having a baby. It seems like the practical thing to do at the time. Mama feels liberated ... and then a week later she wakes up with a bad case of the regrets, but it's too late. I get it, though. Becoming a new mom changes your identity, your sense of self. Maybe you want a new look to reflect that -- or maybe you want a new look to say you're still cool. We all know Kim is worried about losing her cool now as a mom. But a short haircut takes forever to grow out. A dye job can be reversed the very next day. (Wish it were so easy to fix things in Syria ...)
Anyhoo, that's about the best thing I can say about Kim's look. Could be worse. Check out the photo in the link above to get the full effect, because the photo she Instagrammed here doesn't really show it all. I think it's really hard for olive-skinned, dark-eyed women to pull off blond locks (I say this as an olive-skinned, dark-eyed woman). That doesn't stop us from occasionally being curious and trying it anyway, and other women like her sister Khloe have done it well. But this looks kind of dull, like Kim just got dusted all over with a giant brush filled with mineral powder foundation. I like how they matched her hair to her gold necklace, though. Points for that.
Oh Kim. We know. We've been there. We look forward to you going brunette again. It's going to be okay.
What do you think of Kim's new blond 'do?
