Lana Del Rey has gone to the dark side, y’all! Our once blonde-haired beauty has slowwwllly been transforming her locks over the course of the year from light brown to auburn to now *gasp* jet black. She debuted her darkest ’do yesterday at the GQ Men of the Year Awards complete with super-thick lashes, peach cheeks, and a fire engine red matte lip. ME-OW. Her hair especially popped against her satin white gown, and we have to say, we love that she’s gone goth! She totally channels Dita Von Teese with her sultry, Old Hollywood side waves paired with porcelain skin and pin-up pout, don’t you think?
She joins a long list of black-haired beauties including Katy Perry, Megan Fox, and—our fave—The Misshapes’ Leigh Lezark. Such an intense color can come out harsh against the wrong skin tone, but we think Lana’s shade of black has a touch of chocolate warmness that we like. Also, there’s nothing cooler than hazel/blue eyes paired with such a dark ’do because then her peepers REALLY pop! Overall we think her new color adds tons of shine and glamor to her overall look, but what do you think? Do you like Lana’s new jet black hair?
