Meghan McCain Blonde HairAmanda Schwab/Startraks

Blake Lively‘s red hair may have been the talk of the TIME 100 Gala Tuesday night, but another star hit the carpet with a new hue, too: a noticeably blonder Meghan McCain. “Blonder is always better, for me,” she told PEOPLE. “I’m from Arizona, which is like being from Texas. So I like big hair and blonde hair — and lots of makeup all the time.” McCain, wearing an Alexander McQueen dress, said her stylist Josh Rupley — who was also her date — was the mastermind behind her color change. “He’s been doing my hair since the campaign,” she explained, adding that he understands her primping preferences. “People always want to put in low-lights to make [my hair] look more natural. I am always, like, addicted to bleach.” For makeup, the blogger turned to Karen Dupiche, who works for Sherri Shepherd, too. “I met her at The View, and I just loved the makeup that she did,” McCain shared. Next up for the 26-year-old is a weekend trip to the NRA Convention in Pittsburgh with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow.  So, is blonder better for an event like that? “I don’t think it matters,” answered McCain. “I just think you’ve got to like guns.” —Jeffrey Slonim

Lori A on

While I don’t know this woman personally, she always comes across as being “Better than Thou” and she also seems very bitter.

Volantiad on

Rachel Maddow likes guns? ;)-

kate007 on

I think she is wonderful. She has spunk, she speaks her mind, and she is not afraid to buck the system! Go Meghan!!!

Meems on

Is it just me or is there something wrong with her nose? And yeah, she comes off like she’s better than everyone in all the interviews I’ve seen.

ThatOneGuy on

Gorgeous! And hot, too.

Marky on

I’ve noticed that those who think Meghan McCain is “holier than thou” instead of confident and her own person, are bitter rude Democrats that can’t stand anyone who calls themselves Republicans or come from the South. Mind-boggling. Republicans who are “birthers”, or somesuch, are bitter Republicans. What is the matter with people that they can’t read any thread without rude political comments being made? Go look at the tornado threads; same thing. Get over it, everyone. What happened to “nice”?

azgrrrl on

I’m a hard core Democrat – and I happen to think Meghan is a doll. In her book, she came off as spunky, down-to-earth and approachable. And I love the blonder than blonde.

Mike on

Democrats should love Megan MCcain. She’s a RINO republican, who attacks conservatives, and she talks like she belongs on the Cast of Clueless. “OMG” “As if” What gets me is why she allowed on any opinion shows. She’s a total airhead.

Joe on

Fat dumb liberal twit, who cares what color her hair is.


RINO in her politics …and her dress size !

Lizzie on

It doesn’t matter to me if she is a Lesbian (or not), but her attitude is too much. Come down off the mountain and talk to the rest of the world.

Steve on

I agree with Lori A.,Meghan McCain envisions herself as somebody who is mentally superior.She thinks she is so intelligent.I’ve noticed when she says something and is proven wrong instead of admitting she is wrong she will have a little sarcastic comment.Mehgan you are attractive and pretty intelligent but you are not a Rhodes scholar.

Layla on

Who says that all Democrats are against the electorate who call themselves Republicans, or come from the South? I disagree strongly. I love Meghan Mccain. She’s an intelligent, independant young woman, who’s not afraid to speak her mind, or to even disagree with members of her own party. We need more people like her in both parties. As for the haters, that would include the “Republican” women who attacked her recently for her differing opinions, beginning with the likes of Ann Coulter, and others. It’s not a matter of hating some one because of their political party affiliation. We need to respect people who can speak the truth, call out inconsistancies, etc., even if it’s against their own party, and that includes both the Democrats, and Republicans. As for her hair color, she looks good as a blonde, regardless of the shade. Her features give her that “Nordic” look.

Jerry Thompson on

I bet Rachel Maddow would do her in a New York minute!

bond on

Pretty and Smart. Stop hating Dems!

PGH on

I’m as liberal as they come but I could convert for her.

She’s so hot!

Marty on

Megan McCain is nothing but a Stomach with Legs , a Lonely Donut eater… She is more Boring than the White House Dog… BO…

bruce bessler on

Gee, I am at a toss up on which person is dumber then the other. The writer for even taking the time to type this drivel, or the “blond” moron when she opened her mouth?

Doug Post on

Unbelievable. She comes to prominance for political views and all you can comment on is her hair color?????? Get a life.




Susan on

I wonder if the Republicans have embarassed her enough yet. She seems intelligent and informed. I hope she is the “New Age” Republican. Get rid of the old ones and they might have a chance of staying politics.

Zarbon Fleeg on

OMG. Like WOW! Cool!

Mack on

If more republicans were like Ms. McCain — thoughtful, measured, common sensical — the party would have a lot more respect not just in the USA but in the world.

Red Barron on

I’m not a Retardican or anyone at all conversant with the high fashion scene, but give Meg a break. She has a right to her own opinions, politics and identity. Also, from where I sit, she LOOKS great.You want to castigate somebody, pick on someone deserving–like Sarah Palin.

texangirl on

“I’m from Arizona, which is like being from Texas” what?! “I’m from South Carolina, which is like Florida but you have to go through Georgia to get there” brainless!

Frank on

Lets see her exchange this for fatigs the next time her dad John McCain wants to send your sons and daughters to fight in some other counries troubles. Let him know what it is like to worry about their kids diying and see how quick he is to try and send anyother Americans children over there. F@#k him and his spoiled family!!!

texangirl on

she’s always making fun of people smarter than her, so bitter.

gracethecat on

I don’t know if I’d even offer MMcCain with the title of RINO. It would be borderline if I did. The year her father won the nomination she changed her registration from democrat to repulican as a “birthday gift” to her dad. Can you stand it!?? What an arrogant little twit. I use the term “little” gingerly. It’s wise that she spends so much time on hair and make-up, cause if there was more than a head shot you’d understand that her body is a train wreck!

I’m a Texan and a staunch conservative and she gives me the creeps!

H on


Walt on

She’s hot, even for a liberal.

Boston Blackie on

I don’t know about Texas, but I’ve never seen so many women with mustaches as when I visited Arizona. Actually trimmed, groomed mustaches. Yeesh.

bicarl on

How good to it is to hear from Meghan McCain again. Her book “Dirty Sexy Politics” was certainly one of the most sensitive, most charming political reads I have come across in some time. She’ s definitely a smokin’-hot babe in her new blonde ‘do. Meghan, keep on truckin’!

Kevin Duffy on

Hi Meghan, I hope you had a nice time at the event. I have to say, do some people live under a rock? What’s the big deal about a girl changing hair color every day or every other day. It seems normal to me. You stole the show, so the look for the day worked. I think you look great. Thats a real cool cut. I love the way you have a new you all the time. Variety is the spice of life. Good luck Your a star. Your number one girl. Kev

Dan Far on

Meghan McCain is delicious!!!!!

Paul on

So being from Arizona is like being from Texas. That’s not an analogy that I would be proud about. California, yes, Illinois, yes, New Jersey, yes, Texas A BIG FAT NO!

Daniel on

Lots of make up and big blonde hair. Hmmm. where have I seen that. Oh yeah, on any common prostitute. But then again, she is a repugnicant.

Mary on

I’m a New Yorker and a staunch Liberal, and she gives me the creeps.

Susan on

If she thinks wearing all that makeup somehow makes her a Texan, think again. Dallas is getting more liberal every week as people are moving here from all over the place. Anyone who votes for her daddy is as scary as she is.

Harry Lipps on

Meghan McCain needs to get out of the Salon and onto the Treadmill.

rebecca on

Yea I am a democrat and actually really like her

Joseph on

I have always liked this young woman. This look flatters her.

Lindsay on

You are from Arizona. Please do not offend Texas in that way. And why does anyone care she cut her hair?

Nash88 on

She’s hot…..I’d like to see how real deep she is.

tobey on

she needs it in the ass

may on

She’s a great little “commie”. I’m sure Obama is proud!

may on

She is very “Un-American” indeed! Who the heck cares what she thinks?!

Chad on

Another low-life big government McCain. Why? Why do we continue to praise those supporting the tyranny of progressivism? Sure, she has the American Idol looks that the kids like, but when will we look an substance an honor. When will our countrymen understand our founding principles again? We continue to vote for big government oppressors like Bush and Obama while our country is raped at the same time. Sad.

Dad Blit on

So much prettier and classier than anyone named Palin.

Angie Joelee on

Why do America-hating teabaggers insist on attacking the daughter of an American hero? Maybe they’re jealous because she is so much better-looking and more real than Sarah or Bristol?

Kuratali on

I am a liberal democrat and I have to say that I really like her. I don’t sense that she is arrogant and/or bitter. I see her as being smart, sensible, and capable. I think she and her mother are closer to the middle than the right. Politics aside, I think she is also an attractive woman.
