Natalie Portman Goes Blonde

Natalie Portman is having a blonde moment!

Attending a dinner for choreographer husband Benjamin Millepied’s L.A. Dance Project, the Oscar winner debuted her lighter locks (which managed to outshine her white Dior gown) at the Walt Disney Concert Hall.

She rarely makes drastic hair changes, but she’s not the only one who’s recently ditched her brunette roots: Perhaps she’s taking a style cue from, say, Miley Cyrus?

Portman actually had L.A. colorist Tracey Cunningham switch up her ‘do for a role.

“My mom says I’m like a different person,” the Black Swan star, mom to 1-year-old Aleph, told The Hollywood Reporter. “I did it just a couple of days ago.”

“Natalie makes a beautiful blonde!” Cunningham says of the switch-up, which she achieved with Redken’s Blonde Dimensions. “She needed to make the change for an upcoming movie role, so we achieved a gorgeous, multi-dimensional golden honey blonde.” Tell us: Do you prefer Portman as a blonde?

No! Now she looks like every other girl in Hollywood. Too much.

Natalie is a lucky girl who looks great both blonde and brunette. I think her darker locks make her look more dramatic/serious and her lighter look is more whimsical for her. Either way, she is a beautiful woman and a great actress.

She looks terrible as a blonde.

If it ain’t broke don’t fix it, she is so lovely with her natural dark hair. It suits her so beautifully.

I think Natalie looks better as brunette. Natalie knows what works for her, blonde or brunette. I do not see the blonde lasting….
