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

Horrible. I love the haircut on her but the color, with the dark roots even, is not for her. She is gorgeous and there is nothing wrong with being a brunette. Go back, please.

Not a good idea. At all.

Platinum blonde is soooo 80’s – she looks like a member of the B-52’s! If you have beautiful brunette hair, why would you bleach it? YUCK!
