As far as Homeland star hair change-ups go, it’s not quite Damien Lewis shaving off all his hair, but it’s still noteworthy. Claire Danes has traded in her sunny golden shade for something deeper, richer and a little more mysterious (someone alert Carrie Mathison!).

The star appeared on the Late Show With David Letterman to debut the new darker do. And though she typically favors more ethereal neutral looks and light makeup (à la her Emmys look at left), she seemed prepared to show off her new color to maximum effect, choosing a fire engine-red Giambattista Valli look and a heavy, smoky eye under darker, more defined brows.

PHOTOS: Which other stars have had major hair switch-ups lately?

While it’s not quite Angela Chase-levels of red, her new look is decidedly copper or auburn, with warm undertones that really set off her light skin tone. We loved her blonde, but we might have to cast our vote for “permanent redhead” for Danes. (Even more proof that Carrie and Brody are soulmates!)

What do you think of Danes’s new do? Weigh in below.

I like her brown hair much better than blond. She should keep it like that.

Much better.

Not as harsh as the blonde, but there is nothing wrong with her natural color either.

She would be stunning as a brunette.

Much prettier….makes her eyes pop.

Likey like!

That’s the prettiest picture I’ve seen of her on a very long time. The blonde hair really washed her out. The red hair and glam sultry makeup looks great.
