Evan Rachel Wood Debuts New Honey-Blond Hair

Evan Rachel Wood made quite the statement at the ‘Mildred Pierce’ premiere in New York City last night when she hit the red carpet rocking newly honey-blond hair.

We’re still gasping from the drastic hair color transformation.

The 23-year-old actress ditched her famous magenta-red hair for a much lighter blond hue. But she wore her signature Veronica Lake-inspired waves and dark lipstick, maintaining a bit of familiarity.

We love how Wood paired her new honey hairdo with a plum, long-sleeved jersey Elie Saab gown and vintage-style earrings. And her milky complexion, perfectly arched brows, winged liner and perfect flush rounded out her red carpet look.

Wood plays the daughter of Kate Winslet’s character in the upcoming HBO mini-series, and the risqué role called for the young actress’s first nude scene. But lucky for Wood, her co-star has stripped down on film several times before and was there to lend support.

“She coached me through my first nude scene,” Wood told E! News at Monday evening’s premiere. “I mean, she’s done it all. She was literally next to the camera going [thumbs-up].”
