She wasn’t trying to go incognito, but Emily Blunt was barely recognizable with her new hair color on Monday night.

“That’s not Emily Blunt,” one reader commented after we posted a photo to Instagram of Blunt at the Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York. “Yep, that’s not Emily Blunt,” someone else agreed.

But yes, it was Emily Blunt — and yes, she’d gone blonde! The British star debuted a strawberry-blonde hue at Monday night’s gala, hiding the hair color in a pretty, twisty updo, but leaving some light-colored strands out for us to see.

The actress — a natural brunette — often experiments with her hair color, having gone lighter for roles in the past and most recently rocking an ombr√© look.

Since she’s currently filming the sci-fi action flick All You Need Is Kill with Tom Cruise, we assume she dyed her hair for the role. But whether for work or for play, we’re really liking the lighter look. What do you think? Tell us: Do you like Blunt’s new blonde hair?¬†

Always lovely, but I prefer her as a brunette….makes her face pop more. The blonde makes her look washed out.

She looks great either way. You have to admit that that pic of her on Instagram does not look like her at all. It’s a strange angle.

Makes her looked ‘washed out’; definitely looks better with brown hair!!!

Because of all these comments I’m trying, I really am, but I just don’t see her as one of the cuter looking actresses out there today. Oh well. I guess it’s okay to stand alone in one’s opinion once in a while. I like her acting though.

Katharine on

I think she looks better, and more natural, with dark hair. Plus, with so many “blondes” in Hollywood, why not stand out by being brunette?

It looks like I’m in the minority, but I like her better brunette.

Who the heck is Emily Blunt?
