Now Elizabeth Olsen will be even easier to distinguish from her famous older sisters: She’s traded that signature Olsen dirty-blonde hair color for a rich, dark brunette shade.

The actress debuted the new do on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, where, of course, Andy Cohen made her pick her favorite Olsen twin (for the record, it’s Ashley, because Mary-Kate forgot her birthday recently. And to clarify, yes, she was joking!). But it was the new do — not the sibling rivalry hijinks — that really caught our attention.

PHOTOS: Love her outfit! Star styles worth stealing.

Of course, Olsen is no stranger to changing up her strands’ shade: She’s been sandy blonde, pale auburn and everything in between. But this is the darkest we can recall her hair being, and we’re really loving the new look; with her rosy cheeks and peaches-and-cream complexion, it gives her a sweet Snow White vibe that will play well with the bohemian style choices she loves.

Are you loving Olsen’s new look or do you miss the blonde? What would you love to see her do with her hair next?

If your going to write about Elizabeth Olsen being on Watch What Happens Live, you should of really watched the show. You’re insinuating that Elizabeth picked a favorite twin on a serious note, when in fact, she was only joking. And she did mention why her hair is darker, because of her new role in the Avengers, which she’s set to shoot in 2 weeks. DO YOUR HOMEWORK IF YOU’RE WRITING IN A NATIONAL MAGAZINE ABOUT A SUBJECT! This, or ANY OTHER subject!

I think it’s pretty obvious that she wasn’t being serious when picking a favorite (especially given her reason) and the fact that she was on Watch What Happens….I don’t think the article is setting it up like serious drama at all rather assuming their readers can tell a pretty obvious joke when they see one.

She looks AMAZING! So much prettier.

I can’t believe that Lala (that says it all) actually felt the need to make such a ridiculous comment about a joke! Lighten up girl, you are wound way too tight!! And stop yelling

She is soooooooooo much cuter than her sisters!

She’s a very pretty girl.

She’s pretty but her sisters remind me of troll dolls.

Umm Lala, the article does say that she picked her favorite twin as a joke. Do YOUR homework…or at least read the article…before throwing stones.

She is cute .

Oops! She did talk about her hair like Lala says. It’s for the new Avengers movie. She should keep it like that, though. It looks great!

Actually Lala, the article mentions she was joking. Guess you missed that.
