It’s been over a month since Katharine McPhee gave PEOPLE an exclusive sneak peek at her new platinum look on her album cover. Yet she still managed to wait until Fashion Week to reveal the look on the red carpet. Katharine spoke with PEOPLE backstage at the Tommy Hilfiger show in Manhattan’s Bryant Park tents about what prompted her to trade her signature sexy brunette style for being a blonde-bobbed bombshell. “I have a record coming out in January called Unbroken,” she explains, “and I’ve been working on it for the last year and it’s been a big artistic development. It sort of felt like I was shedding skin, so I was literally shedding layers of hair.” Tell us: What do you think of Katharine’s blonde hair? –Reporting by Jeffrey Slonim

I always thought her being a brunette made her stand out. Hollywood blondes are a dime a dozen -I think this was a dumb decision. Nothing about this is going to help her album sales. She flopped the first time, there’s not a whole lot of hope for Take 2. Its an act of desperation to get attention.

Katharine, you look horrible. The cut looks good on you but the color stinks. Brunette is much better.

geez, what did she do that for?!?! Her hair was so pretty before! I would’ve killed for her hair before this… I guess sometimes people just need to make a change… just like Kim K did, but she has since gone back to her original color… hopefully Kat will follow suit soon!

This is one young lady that really really suits the dark hair. She is pretty either way, but the blonde does nothing for her.
