Bye bye, red — hello again, ombré! Drew Barrymore appears to be back on the two-tone hair wagon again after dying her hair red in April. The actress — who hasn’t been out in a while — joined pals Cameron Diaz and Kate Hudson (plus Reese Witherspoon) at the LACMA Art + Film Gala Honoring Clint Eastwood in L.A. on Saturday, debuting her new (and also short) do at the event.

In April, Barrymore’s colorist Tracey Cunningham told PEOPLE that the actress prefers to keep her look fresh. “We like to try new things when the seasons change,” she added. Since the auburn was “the perfect spring red shade,” Cunningham said, it’s possible Barrymore’s short dark-to-light is what’s hot again for fall. Not that it matters for the star; as Cunningham said, “Drew is a color chameleon! Her skin is so pretty that any hair color will complement her eyes.”

And in fact, she has tried just about every color under the sun: in September of 2009, the actress worked light blonde hair with black tips while promoting her film Whip It, then moved on to practically a reverse color scheme, sporting darker roots with lighter ends, a look she owned for quite some time. She’d previously sported red hair in 2007 and 2008, as well. Tell us: What do you think of Barrymore’s return to ombré hair?

Ick. Why does Drew Barrymore always try to look like a poor college student? She is an attractive woman and should play up her attributes instead of trying to look like something she is not.

This is news? How do I get a job like this? She can’t do no wrong? People are so used to mediocrity that this is an acceptable article. She is hardly a star. She was cute in ET and even the Wedding Singer, she is no Bette Davis and no, I am not jealous or old. This world is just wacked.

I love it. I wish I could do that to my hair and look good.

I think she should settle on a color before her hair falls out.

I’ll probably get skewered for this but I don’t care: I really don’t like Ombre highlights….
